And I have the first two pieces of news.

Found this on BOLS:

It's a picture of the new Sentinel Sprue, and if you look you will that it has a Plasms Cannon, Missile Launcher, a Hunter/Killer Missile, an Autocannon, an optional armoured canopy (for the heavy Sentinel), and Multi-part legs which should open up the choice of positions.

Of course those who use Sentinel legs in their Dreadnought builds will also like this sprue as there's quite a few bits worth raiding it for.

Gagoc TheAncient - June 20, 2009 06:22 PM (GMT)
Bols has pics of the new Iron-Hand Straken, Leman Russ Punisher and Leman Russ Executioner.

P.S. Yesterday the GW and Indie shops in Sheffield got a Mysterious Black Box.
It had the New Hellhound Sprues, Demolisher Sprues, Ork Battlewagon Upgrade Kit and Hive City Tile in it.
I know this because I got a good look at them! ;)

Pacific - July 10, 2009 11:37 AM (GMT)
Cheers for that Gagoc, I wonder when Planetary Empires will be released? They had a copy in my local GW the other day so presumably the things printed and waiting to be sold.

Gagoc TheAncient - July 10, 2009 10:25 PM (GMT)
I found out that there was actually two demolishers in the Black Box.

Today I built the Hellhound as a Banewolf for my local Indie shop.
I've never built an IG tank before, but I built the Banewolf in about 1 1/2 hours.
The main difference between the new tanks and the old, is that there's no wheels. The tracks go on like SM tank tracks.

Now I've never built a chimera chassis before, but this one was easy as there were guiding lips for the pieces.
The floor of the chassis was split in two, with an alternative part for the rear section to make a shorter alternative vehicle. What, I don't know.
The hellhound sprue had a part that fitted over the upper front hull of the chimera chassis, and parts that fitted along the inside-back of the track units (took me a while to work that out).

The drums are an intersting design. They have no bottoms, but fit instead into a plate, and the lids with cap are designed to fit in one of two ways.
It's not quite as complex as it seems, and now I know the kit better I could probably assemble it faster.

As a thankyou the shop owner/manager gave me the spare bits, and the bits from the Demolisher he assembled that morning. He's also asking if I'd be interested in assembling the other Demolisher.

NeDlol - July 10, 2009 11:12 PM (GMT)
The GW order arrived in today at my friends shop, after looking for the box that had my sodding predator in I saw the mysterious black box, I grabbed it ran to the table and opened it up, two new russ support tanks and a hellhound amongst other things were in there. After running some errands for my mate, one of wich involved 120 tubs of icecream...

So after that I spent the rest of the afternoon building a punisher, I'm supposed to be going back to his shop tomorrow to build the hellhound and the other russ.
The only sad thing is that there isn't any pintle mounted weapons on the frame nor a dozer blade, oh well they were free, I can't bitch too much can I? :)

I'm more than likely going to be getting myself one of the new russ, Just so I can really go to town on the kit and make it look stunning. I'm picturing a punisher with flamer sponsons with a catachan engineer squad hitching a lift on it. Tools and equipment thrown on the back, maybe a seccond punisher with strips of timber or metal sheeting on it for building materials...

skaebold - July 11, 2009 01:04 AM (GMT)
Thanks for that news Gagoc and NeDlol. It's a shame there doesn't seem to be those accessories in the kits. Can you tell us what accessories are included? Or any pics? ;)

NeDlol - July 11, 2009 10:59 AM (GMT)
You get what the tank comes with, smoke launchers and a searchlight. I'm hoping they just forgot to put the accessory frame in the black box to be honest.

Gagoc TheAncient - August 16, 2009 11:51 PM (GMT)
I was able to get the new GW water pot and paint pallet, and the Battlescape on Friday.

Anybody else got these?
What do you think of them?

ShroudFilm - August 16, 2009 11:57 PM (GMT)
I saw the pallette and pot last week. They looked terrible.

Johnny_Hawkwind - August 17, 2009 05:20 AM (GMT)
Saw the palette yesterday and wasn't impressed. I bought one from an art supply store that has 10 wells and a huge mixing tray in the middle for 89p.

Didn't know about the water pot but does anyone really leave their brushes in water these days?

ShroudFilm - August 17, 2009 11:25 AM (GMT)
Yeah, surely that would rot the bristles and the glue within the ferrule?

DaemonlordAbraxes - August 17, 2009 10:21 PM (GMT)
Hasn't done that to me yet, it just screwed up the paint on the wooden part

Doghouse - August 18, 2009 04:54 PM (GMT)
No mention of space hulk? :blink:

Hero of Istvaan - August 18, 2009 05:21 PM (GMT)
thats because theres already a whole thread just for space hulk doghouse! lol

Doghouse - August 20, 2009 09:10 PM (GMT)
I can't find it. :(

Pacific - August 20, 2009 09:12 PM (GMT)

Doghouse - August 20, 2009 09:17 PM (GMT)
Thanks mate! ;)

Was hoping for some new looking claws and fists, but 1 out of 3 seems ok. I'm sure that is the old fist :(

DaemonlordAbraxes - September 7, 2009 08:13 PM (GMT)
Those are awesome!!!!!

Pacific - September 7, 2009 09:08 PM (GMT)
I see they have defiled a beakie helm by adding a top-knot :P

Hero of Istvaan - September 7, 2009 09:45 PM (GMT)
i like it its very 'luna wolves' :P

Pacific - September 7, 2009 11:31 PM (GMT)
I view top-knots in the same way as bunny ears and bat wings on chaos marines, and I'm not going to go into that again here :P

BigWill - September 9, 2009 04:34 PM (GMT)
I spy on the right of the sprue a mk3 chest and possible mk 3 legs

Gagoc TheAncient - September 9, 2009 06:47 PM (GMT)
I got my mits on these sprues for a few minutes, and had a good look. (Thakyou Wargames Emporium!)

There are 28 heads, five scouts, five helmeted including a Wolf's Head (top left, just above backpack), and 6 have braids but that does include 1 scout head.

Two of the heads look as though their friends used the clippers on them after a drunken evening in the Fang. And they didn't shave off the eyebrows!

Everything has some detail to it, even if it's subtle.
Nearly every weapon has some wolf detail to it. There's even a scout arm holding a plasma pistol.

There are quite a few upgrade bits, including a Combat Shield, a SW 'cumberbund' with knife that fits over a Sm bekt buckle, and two crossed knives bit that also fits the belt buckle.

It also looks like they'll be doing an upgrade sprue for the Wolfguard Terminators.

Kriegersen - September 11, 2009 10:19 PM (GMT)
I got my hands on the SW termi sprues today, they come with the option for both types of terminators in one box :)
plus the autocannon actually has an amunition feed (makes alot of sence IMO
and the details are amazing on those sprues :)

BigWill - September 11, 2009 10:27 PM (GMT)
I'm on a termie kick lately ,I cannot wait to get 10 of those badboys.

Gagoc TheAncient - October 5, 2009 07:43 PM (GMT)
Your local store will be receiving a new 'Black Box' from GW this week.

It's contents.....
Two of the new Clanrat sprues, each with 20 skaven, and the new plastic Doomwheel!

They look great (better than the last plastic range I think) although I still have my 1987 sculpts to finish* so won't buy any more. ;)

*Which, I think, still stand up really well to the current ranges GW put out.

Ahh good memories!

I think i still have the old Skaven Screaming Bell from about 1991/1992 in a box somewhere, i bought it about the same time as the 2nd edition 40k game came out

Gagoc TheAncient - October 10, 2009 09:23 PM (GMT)
There are rumours doing the rounds on sites such as BOLS and Warseer, of a new Blood Angels Codex.

Here's the link to BOLS:

There is speculation that this release might be GW's reaction to the feedback on Space Hulk, especially that about the Terminator models.

Although such a new Codex is needed, I cannot say whether it is feasible. This is most true when you take into account rumours of Space Wolf-type upgrade sprues for Blood Angels to accompany such a release.

Whether it's a solid rumour or a vapourous one that will evaporate into nothing over time, I thought it worthy of bringing to your attention.
