I grabbed a sprue of the noble human team off eBay to convert into Inq28 henchmen.

Make warhammer christmas decorations from warhammer TV.

Nothing special really BUT what caught me off guard is that they tell you to get materials from a craft shop! Obviously GW don't sell glass tree decs, But things like plaster filler haven't been seen in a GW tutorial in many a moon.

Any chance of posting pics when you get round to converting? How well would these work as the basis Necromunda venators or 40k mercenaries?

I'm thinking of getting a box of Blood Bowl Ogres and converting 'em into Roman gladiators using Jugula bits...

Skinks coming to Warhammer Underworlds. I don't play the game, but the figures look very tempting - https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/01/08/introducing-warhammer-underworlds-first-seraphon-warband/

I saw that. And I was just after skinks for an army too.

I like the chameleon. I like to see lizardmen that look like lizards, rather than men with slightly lizardy features, if that makes sense.

Those are some very cool looking Lizardmen. It is going to be difficult for me to find them at a price I am willing to pay though.

GW doing very well during the pandemic - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-55629984

Games Workshop, which makes the tabletop miniature game, saw sales hit a record £186.8m in the period, up 26%.

Games Workshop, which sells Warhammer and other miniature wargames around the world, said its online sales were up 90% in May to November while profits increased by a third.

Some 4.7 million people now use the Warhammer community website, it said, an increase of 200,000 on the same period last year.

I dont know if this question is worthy of its own thread so I try asking here first.

Once I read a warhammer 40k book about a dude who could see the warp and when he was trapped by it once he was saved by his dead mother. And he was shocked to see that she was in the warp. I dont remember much other about the book.

Anyone know what this was?

Kangaroos don't have full length front legs. Kangaroo-ish though. Like an antelope and a kangaroo mix

They are big though. How the heck would you transport a unit of those?

"Shaved tauntauns!", my son said. They look pretty good as sci-fi mounts; not sure about the riders!

They also don't have full length front legs :) Shaved Tauntauns is a good call though! lol I'd transport them with the base and ankle connection separate to the rest of the miniature via a piece of broken plastic. (Cries of "Mum, mines broken, buy me more" heard for miles around)

Maybe I've just got used to the way they do models lately, but these looks quite easy to transport - they're chunky enough that you can brace the thicker parts against the foam/packing material and keep the fiddly bits free floating.

Whilst I'm not a huge fan of the Age of Sigmar aesthetic, the models in the new Warhammer Quest box look brilliant
