Well balls. I shouldn't justify the expense but I've bought the first two issues so far. Decent models compared to my late 90s years collecting Imperial Guard. I'll probably get the first five and then rethink my life.
It's definitely a good friendly way to build up things.
You wait till they start seeing all the kits in a shop though, that's a slippery slope 😉
Oh, we're already there! Both of my boys have a few sets - eldest has a mix of space marines, necrons and orcs. Youngest only has space marines. So far it's mainly just been about assembling and painting, which they both enjoy, plus we've played a good chunk of Blackstone Fortress. I've just been looking for an easy route into the actual gaming side - KillTeam is still my plan A, but slowly building up our skills and knowledge through the magazines should be good for getting into W40k proper 😁
I have to blame you lot. It started a couple of months back seeing the old EG thread but now I'm back in full GW worshipping again though it's nice to have some of the YouTube channels this time round.
Oh, and if you haven't seen it, Duncan Rhodes' Kickstarter for his 'Two Thin Coats' paints range is going great guns after launching on Fri/Sat. Last time I checked it was at £760,000 of £35,000 asked for
Thanks all - it's funny - looking at the photo, I've seen a few bits which need tidying up
They're the Space Wolves from the Tau Killteam box set - I've really enjoyed getting the armour just right, even if the yellow shoulder pads have taken about 5 coats to get right! Although I've also got a few Ultramarines painted (from the Know No Fear set), I'm inclined to go with Blood Angels, as this is what I did when I was originally into Warhammer in the early 90s...
Hopefully the quality of my painting has improved since then
All done in 3 months. Never wanted to paint white ever again.
Incredible stuff! And all in 3 months!!
The rest of the army (bikes, speeders, few characters) still linger in boxes to this day. That was 5+ years ago, such was my trauma.
"White" will destroy anyone, even if I know now to paint extremely light grey and only highlight with pure white. As for yours, yellow looks smooth even after 5 coats, and most imperfections only show up in pics, not a few feet away at tabletop.

Mr Wonderstuff: Chopper gang reporting in together ZX-Spectrum 48k. Always wanted a Grifter though.

EMarkM: I had friends with Grifters and Commandos. I had a Rancho (I think: I can't find it online this morning!), though, which I suspect was a cheaper version. I never had a Chopper, but did have the Budgie

zagibu: I wanted to write s o c c e r, but there is a mischievious autocorrect in place that changes it to football.

zagibu: But coming back to the PE teacher topic...my PE teacher kept a pair of extra gay short shorts from the 70ies in his bag for people who "forgot" their sports bag at home. I had to wear them many times.

Aunt Alison: Can't read that as anything other than my PE teacher had this great pair of extra gay short shorts that he let me wear

zagibu: Well I can't deny that a small, somewhat female part in me enjoyed flaunting my thin, pale, hairless teenage legs in their full glorious length in front of the whole crew. Thankfully it was before the camera phone era.
