Not much else to post up yet, but I will start work on the rest of the Battle Box soon.

Got My Cryx Force Primed and Ready!

Primed dark grey and ready for some painting, hope to start in the next few days. Still have to choose which one to start with first, any ideas on that? Well, here is a couple primer shots of progress since as you know, if there are no pics, then there is no proof.

Got my Battlebox today!

Let the construction begin! Well, I am very excited to have my Cryx Battlebox and some other goodies come in the mail today, and of course I got to work on them at the first available moment. First off, let me say that I really like these mini's! Easy to build, easily magnetized(which my Slayer is fully magnetized now), and very well detailed. My only complaint, is very pronounced mold lines.If you have built a few kits from any manufacturer, then it shouldn't be a problem to remove, just time consuming. Now with that as my only complaint, all I can say is WOW!!! After flipping through the MKII rulebook and the Cryx Faction Deck, and the Cryx Faction Book at my LGS, I can say that I can't wait to get painting and then get them on the gaming table.
As it turns out, the two better hobby stores in my area(Books, Comics, and Things), each have a Press-Ganger that runs games on the first Saturday of each month. Looks like I made an excellent choice in switching up to Privateer Press games. More to come this weekend after I get some more time to bust out some new mini's and read the rulebook fully, but for now here are some early WIP pics.

Well I pulled the trigger.....

And bought the Warmachine MKII rulebook, Cryx Faction Deck, and the Cryx Battle Box! Can't wait till they arrive, so I can get to work on them. My LGS has gaming for Warmachine one Saturday a month too, so I am going to see if I can be ready for the first Saturday in February.

I am still thinking of how to divide up my remaining Marines to sell on ebay, most likely unit by unit, watch for the post on that soon.

Black Templars Sold...

Well, the Black Templars are sold, shipping out soon. Still have the Crimson Fists to sell, and I will be putting them back on ebay soon, guess I will break up the group and sell them in smaller batches. Hopefully I get more bites that way.
I will be finishing up the painting on my Skulltaker and squad of Bloodletters and selling them too, so if interested drop me a line before I put them on ebay.

WARMACHINE here I come!!! I have decided to go away from 40K and try something new, maybe GW will get their stuff together some time and I will come back to it, but as for now, they lost a customer. I like the games and the story line of 40K and Fantasy, just don't like spending hundreds of hundreds of dollars to get my gaming and modeling fix. If they come out with a Kill Team game I will be all over it, but I doubt it as that would encourage people to buy less "plastic crack", and they can't have that now can they. Well, I don't want to turn this into a rant or anything, just going with a wallet friendly, skirmish based game for now. Hit me up if interested in my Marines or Demons, and I will put up links to my ebay listings as soon as I get them listed.

Contemplating Warmachine????

Been looking a lot at WARMACHINE from Privateer Press lately, thinking about dropping 40K all together and going full on into a new game system. Like the look of the models, the price is better, the amount of models required speeds up painting time and gets you on the table sooner, the books are far superior with more content and totally full color, i love the cards that are used for quick reference, the range of models and options is huge, and now they are releasing more and more plastic kits for more options with less price and greater ease of building. Come to think of it, GW is losing out to Privateer Press in almost all categories. I will have to see if my ebay sales take, and then decide if getting out of 40K is for me, but as it is looking, I will at the very least give WARMACHINE a try. I can pick up a couple of Battlebox sets on the cheap and download the starter rules for free.

Give me some opinions on switching over, pros and cons.
