I had problems with delivery from them in the past on two different orders spaced about 5 days apart. After a month of waiting for both them I had to cancel and even with the confirmed cancellations, I had to go through my credit card company (Amex) to get the actual refund credited to my account! To be honest, I too was tempted by the 30% discount they offered but after those two experiences I decided to go else where.

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!

That happened to my mate at Christmas. He ordered a case and they didn't deliver it. I think I will try dark sphere.

Same here. They offer great deals, but don't have a lot in stock apparently. I ended up cancelling my last order from them after 5 weeks waiting for it to be despatched.

Baneblade. More guns, tougher, effective against an array of targets, and yeah, it's a huge tank. I like them because they fit in with the Guard army, whereas a Knight always seems out of place wherever it is (maybe in a FW Mechanicus army, in which case; why are you running a Knight instead of a Warhound? You've got a FW Mechanicum army, you're some kind of being made from money).

should be Imperial knight paladin and knight errant VS Baneblade, Banehammer, Banesword, Doom Hammer, Hellhammer, Shadowsword, Stormlord or Stormsword.

looks like you get a lot more from the baneblade kit and with magnets you could have it all

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Well since the Knight can be used in a non-escalation game I would go knight. In a 1k tournament today I got tabled by a guy who had 2 knights (750 points) and there was just nothing I could do with them. Now I have a baneblade and saw what it does to knights the other day so if you use super heavies a lot in your games go baneblade, but every day gaming, and painting, knight all the way.

Thats generally what you call a win at all cost player. One knight I could understand, it would be tough to take down at 1k but not impossible. Two though? About as easy as going through three land raiders..

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

The real problem was I had flown my Vendetta off the table when I was tabled, technically I still had some lascannon shots coming their way I did take off 4 HP from one knight before it ended it the 3rd turn....
