Huzzah! GW Reference Praetoria Again.

Now,  there was a rumour going around that, years ago, a GW high up considered that the Praetorian Imperial Guard were a slightly amusing joke that had got out of hand,  Hence, their models going OOP whilst older 2nd Ed metals are still around long after the Praetorians disappeared.

This could be further reinforced by noting that the Redcoats In Spaaaace hadn't featured in a Codex since the 3rd Ed version.

Today, however, in the latest of The Regimental Standard blogposts containing advice from Capt Catachan,

there is the line:

Please excuse his colourful language and harsh local colloquialisms: he was raised in less refined surroundings than you, good men of Mordia, Praetoria and Cadia.*

Hooray.  New models please!!!!

A Busy Weekend

As I mentioned in the discussion below a previous post, I have a slight case of 'Praetorian fatigue' creeping in.

To that end, I'm going to attempt to spread out into some other small projects and catch up on bits 'n' bobs that have been on the backburner for a while.

Relatively new are Kawl, Canoness Verydian and a Krieg conversion provided by Zzzzzz as part of a bits swap.

The Tech Priest I bought cheaply at the PAW 2017 Bring and Buy.

Boss Zagstruck and some Storm Boyz from PAW 2016!

The greenstuff ferrets (berets) were added by me to add to a previous squad.

Time to finish off the Kromlech WWII british Commando inspired Orks.

Throw in some MkIII Heresy era UMs and I should be kept ticking over until Gulliman arrives.

Another Platoon Complete.

As per the title, another 55 strong unit to add to the horde.

Please Mantic, can I have my 3 months overdue Tunnelers.

To avoid Praetorian fatigue, I'll be switching back to Horus Heresy Ultramarines next.  The MkIIIs are now complete with their Forge World pads and have been sprayed.

A Cheeky Little Fellow!

I visited the Plymouth PAW 2017 show this weekend gone and picked up this little resin chappie.  It's an alternate sci-fi dwarf engineer from Gydran Miniatures ( ), a  not-Squat Tech Priest if you will.

Oh the options we have.

Gydran also have a Kickstarter on the go if armoured sci-fi dwarves are your thing.

Well, They Finally Did It!

Looks like my Ultrasmurfs will be led by Papa Ultra Smurf in the near future.

I may have to learn how to paint flames!
