Is it wrong that I prefer it?

Not to me.
\I prefer it too.
That is why I asked, as I can see some fairly easy conversions to old school Ambulls with that fella.

The brown fella looks like an actual creature. The one on the right looks like a villain from 'Batman Forever'. Death by neon.

The brown fellow is a dnd umber hulk(the original inspiration for ambulls) you can get an undercoated version for painting yourself.

All depends on the Treemen really.

But strange choice for  team before Wood Elves and Lizardmen.

Isn't there a wood elves team already? Or am I just thinking of the elven union team?

I would be down for a Lizardmen team either way.

Yes, I have one of those. Very nice too. Plastic Wizkids range like Bones.

You are not a true GW fan and you surely lack skulls on your outfit sir!


While I prefer Ambull, I want 2 or 3 cheap umber hulks too :)

Call me bonkers, but I am mist interested in those Halfling Blood Bowl players....and I have not played BB for about 15 years!
If you are bonkers then that must mean I am bonkers. I really like these new halflings. I just hope GW do placcy treemen though or sales will be disappointing. Imagine having to fork out £40+ for two pretty much essential players.

So, apart from discussing the pre-release teaser pics of some of the miniatures in it, has anyone already mentioned the Shadowspear box yet? Because I've now seen those new Primaris sculpts and they'd be enough to give me a right push off and over the 'Love 'em / 'Meh' fence, because those are awesome 8)

I already liked the lighter, not-scout armour better than the tactical version, but this set adds a whole range of tacticool stuff to them, making me actually wanting to paint up a few. The guy throwing the smoke grenade is just ace!



And the Chaos contingent is pretty suave too, what with the Spider daemonengine, Obliterators and more marine poses.

The only thing not 100% doing it for me (modelwise, I'm sure the rules will be sweet) are the Autocannon-toting jumppackers. But I remember the role in Dark Eldar armies back in the day; those Scourges could be brutal, jumping heavy weapons all over the place.

So, even though I'm still in the process of painting up the contents of my Dark Imperium box (the Death Guard part anyway), I am now seriously tempted to get my hands on this box... ::)

Hello!


The guy on the right looks like he's thinking "why do I have to haul this thing again? It's creepy and it stinks..."

I really have no idea what I'm doing.

If that is the case then the chap on the left has obviously been a very naughty boy indeed!
