Default GW's December releases.

For 40k two items: one a diorama of two snotlings examining a discarded shoota, the other a pack of thieving snotlings and a dead ork, with the snots doing all sorts of wacky things like taking a gak in a helmet and pulling teef from a skull.

Fantasy: two knights of the Blazing Sun conversion packs, all sculpted up by a new guy. There's a command pack with banner, horn, blinged out sword, heads and shields and there's a regular pack with five heads and five shields. As always, Knights of the Empire not included.

Other than that, a re-release of some big kits: Fortified manor for fantasy, for 40k the Fortress of Redemption, Imperial Strongpoint and Imperial Sector.

That's all folks!

Some pretty cool stuff by the look of it. I like the Knights of the Blazing Sun upgrade pack, and who knows if they sell well, GW might do some of the other famous knightly orders of the Empire. That would be freaking awesome and made of all kinds of win. I also like the grot going potty in the ork helmet. I reckon those grots and the fallen ork would make nice objective counters, or you could use the grots to boost the numbers in your grot mobs.

Grots are aweome - especially the gun "vignette". Definitely a useful pack for all the Ork players out there...

The Knights upgrade pack seems like a sticking a plaster on a broken leg - the Empire Knights are in dire need of a more complete revamp, especially the horses [which don't appear to have changed in well over a decade!].

current wip -
dark angels seventh company
skaven horde
the warriors of ulthuan

foible - foi·ble / ˈfoibəl
noun: a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone's character:
"they have to tolerate each other's little foibles".
