Welcome news indeed!


The unusual way this news broke, along with some inconsistent-sounding elements such as the fact that this studio would be picking up the LotR/Hobbit franchise, led me to doubt its veracity. However, this seems to be confirmation from an official source that some of the Specialist Games will see the light of day once more (although no comments about LotR). I’m not sure why GW chose to release the information this way rather than making a grand announcement but the return of some classic games is certainly exciting news for the hobby. It seems that this may have been a blunder and GW did not intend the news to go public yet.

Caution does need to be exercised though. At the moment GW are not promising anything more than “new boxed games and stand-alone sets” rather than a fully relaunched product range with continued support. So, all-in-all not too far away from what I predicted earlier.


I was insanely happy to discover that one of my models (the Goblin King from the Hobbit boxed set) was featured in White Dwarf magazine! I started reading White Dwarf way back in 1995 at the tender age of 11 and subscribed for many years. It has always been something of an ambition to get something published in the magazine and now that has finally come true.


In the last few days GW’s website has released information regarding the relaunch of the Citadel range of paints. The total number of paints will be expanded to 145 colours and will contain new paint formulae specifically designed for use in drybrushing or as glazes. This certainly sounds like exciting news and I’m looking forward to trying out the new range and experimenting with the different effects. The only downside is that the existing paints will be changing their names which seems needlessly confusing. However, next month’s White Dwarf will apparently contain a conversion chart which will help with the transition.

Over the last year or so I have been working on my Death Guard army. This is an ongoing project but those models that are fully painted and based have been added to my gallery page. You can find them here.
