A quick update from Blackmane

Hi all

It's been a while since I posted anything but I have been really busy at university. The first week back after christmas we were given 4 assignments so unfortunately the hobby has had to take a back seat for the time being.

Having said that it hasn't stopped me buying many new things over the past few weeks. The Dwarfs been the primary focus of my spending spree though thanks to the weekly release schedule it was stretched out over 4 weeks rather than all at once haha. I have to say I really like all the new kits. I think the gyrocopter is a vast improvement over the old one, the new models for hammers/ironbreakers and longbeards are all amazing. I have promised myself the I will assemble and paint all of these before buying anymore of them to make bigger units. And then we come on to the characters both named and not. I love the all. As someone who is studying engineering Grimm Burloksson has a certain appeal it has to be said. 

And then on top of that GW announced the worst kept secret of the last few weeks the Imperial Knight. I will definitely be getting one of those on launch. I'm certain more will follow in time. I think I'm eventually planning on doing one Adpetus Mechanicus aligned knight, probably Taranis as I loved the Mechanicum HH book, one Imperial aligned knight and one Freeblade. 

I've also bought a couple of models by Knight models, namely Iron Man and The Riddler. I noticed them in my local game store and couldn't resist. I'm really looking forward to having a go at painting them when I get the time. 

Hopefully I will get some free time soon so I can do a little bit of painting and maybe get something more worthy of a post on the blog or at least a WIP.

Well that's it for this post. As always thanks for taking the time time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments be they good, bad or somewhere in between.
