Local Warhammer shop has a shelf full of them.

Always buy those when you see them, if only for a present or to recruit new blood  ;).
They don't appear in the Netherlands, but at the time I bought 4 of the 1st Lotr DeAgostini's, just for the models...

[...] no idea what to do with the golden wombles. Probably send to the charity shop

As already suggested, they can be used as statues (animated or not).

I am going to use the sigmarites as statues for Frostgrave.

There's even a quick tutorial available on CItadel Colours website, in the unlikely case someone needs it:

Sisters are up for pre-order - link

Now I have pretty much stopped buying GW minis because I hate having to paint all of the extraneous detail on them. Blood Bowl figures not included in this general announcement.

That said, I love these new Sisters of Battle figures. I am also amazed at the painting of the red tabards in these models as well as the faces. Incredible work.

I'd be half tempted to pick these up if I wasn't going to spend the last of my cash on the 7TV Flash Gordon models.

Picked up a couple today for the wraiths, donít know what I will do with the Sigmarines though (although the kids might want to chuck some paint at em)   ???

If you still haven't decided and your kids don't want em - there are always school clubs, one of which folks are already sending some to: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=122008.0

Today while in a local supermarket, in the newspaper & magazine section, I noticed a new magazine by Games Workshop centered around the 40k universe.

Is this a separate publication to the Age of Sigmar one that has previously been mentioned? I've seen neither so far, but then I no longer go to WH Smith, and seldom visit large supermarkets. Also, I'm broke.

I would assume cherno is outside of the UK and this is possibly somewhere they are trialing or have launched the 40k Conquest series. It's been going in the UK for over a year now and you can't get it in stores anymore I believe.

No, it's a new Age of Sigmar publication in the UK. Going by the name of Mortal Realms.
First issue in the shops last week - I think issue 2 is out tomorrow.
https://www.warhammermortalrealms.com/

The 40K one was (IIRC) two years ago.
A version of Mortal Realms was trialled in the north of England earlier this year (as is typical of these products) but this is a full countrywide release.

I'm still able to pick up the odd issue of Conquest in my local WH Smith's. I think they generally just have it for standing orders but get a couple extra copies on top. Depending on what kit is included they bounce off the shelves pretty quickly so it's a total lottery as to whether I can get the good ones.

Anything with just paint tends to hang around though...

See:

Today while in a local supermarket, in the newspaper & magazine section, I noticed a new magazine by Games Workshop centered around the 40k universe. It is one of these "collect something over a dozen issues, with each one containing a tiny bit of it" affairs. In this case, the first issue had sprues of Ultramarines ("Your first Citadel miniatures!") plus bases and three pots of Citadel paints (blue, red and something else), and of course the magazine. The advertised price was Ä1.99, I guess it will be quite a bit higher for the following issues. I didn't look at it more closely as I was at work, though. I found it quite interesting  :)

I know the mortal realms one is out. I have a copy. :)

IIRC they restarted the 40K version in a few new markets

That must be the case, given the different setting, price, and the inclusion of paints. I've just got a copy of Mortal Realms from the Warhammer shop, and the only 40K publication they knew of was Conquest. BTW I don't suppose we can complain that the first issue of MR costs £1 more than Conquest...

Has anyone seen the video released today about the Citadel air paint range?

Not only is it bad enough pouring paint into an airbrush cup from a Citadel paint pot, the video clearly shows a big lump going I to the cup... nice way to bung up your airbrush I'm sure.
