I found these while snooping about online:

New Scenery peices of Dreadstone Blight and Witchfate Tor


Dreadstone Blight apparently comes in at the £20 mark in the UK. The Witchfate Tor is £50... but its multiple levels with detailed inside floors.. and its base is 7 inch accross, so its much taller then a bastion.

And some new hobby peices, including the Monster Case, and the new paint station and cutting mat:



The paint station is now up for advanced order on the main website. The monster case will apparently be £50, but will only fit at most the one stompa. Its two layers of pick and pluck tank foam with the coragated foam in the top and bottom of the case.

The pictures come from the instore leaflets that GW produces around now for x-mas shopping items.

Thanks :) just like to say to please note that the prces shown are in Austrailian Dollars, and that GW items are ridiculously expensive over there, so don't take them as too much of a guide for how much they'll cost where you are.

The paint station for instance is $55 AUD, which is £34 GBP. The current paint station, which isn't listed anymore on the site, was £20.

Circular tower, thats a bit out of the comfort zone for GW, particularly when you consider everything in warhammer is on a square base, very nice anyway, obviously related as they both have the same base element . Loving that monster case, can see a few of those getting sold. Paint station on the other hand ,cant see the point, never going to paint on my knees and if i had desk space to put the station down? then i dont need the paint station!

Sorry you get stuck with them Grish :(


I agree about the paint station Bits, though, i'm guessing its nice to have stuff organised, and so your not going to knock your paints over. The proper recess's for pots look like they might be useful against the woe of many a figure painter... 'Cat Strike'.

As for the monster case, I'll probably get one.. looks like you might be able to cram two stompers in given its depth, which means it'd be awesome for an Ogre army, or big models like baneblades.

OMG look at that sexy tower *jizz*
looks really good shame about the AUS prices but they have kangaroos so I guess this balances it out:)

The recesses look too shallow to protect against being knocked over. Also, it is all on one level :(, so it does not help with the pot you are looking for hiding behind others problem.

I miss the big paint carousels; I am still kicking myself for not getting one.

Wish I had the exact dimensions of the monster case... given that it fits a Stompa, I'd think you could probably cram an entire mechanised army in it.

The scenery is very nice, but I'm not sure about the painting station... I've got over 80 pots of paint :) While a lot more expensive, the workstation combo from http://www.miniaturescenery.com will hold about 3 times more pots on 4 levels...

It's definitely a lot more expensive! But for someone who has the dédication to buy 50+ paint colors, 10-12 different brushes, etc, it's worth to invest in a quality product... If one has only 20 paint pots it's my very personnal opinion that investing that 50-odd dollars in more paint, washes, mixing medium, etc!

Me personally... I probably only use about 20-25 different colours... so I don't need something that big. Still, if i ever went serious I'd consider it.

Okay, a bit more about the monster case i've found out.. apparently it'll cost £50 in the UK... and size-wise, sorry it'll only fit that one stompa at most. :(

Its a double layer of pick and pluck 'tank foam' and the stompa is the most it'll fit.

For people who live in the uk, consider this instead of the monster case, I got mine for £20 from Maplin, pulled out the eggshell foam on top, and it currently fits:

2 Fire Prisms
2 Falcons
4 Wave Serpents
Tape measure
2 Dice Cubes
1 Full infantry tray (lying on top where the eggshell used to be)

For those of you who measure things in "Space Marine" sizes, it fits 16+ Rhino chassis, plus the infantry tray on top. That number obviously goes down if you have sponsons/turrets. Alternatively it fits 4 Land Raiders with a lot of spare space.

I'm not sure if it would fit a Stompa, but it definitely fits anything smaller (as in, any other model in production that isn't FW). Again, this was £20 (as opposed to the £35 minimum GW are going to charge).

The paint station is the perfect present for the hobbyist who has everything that is actually useful.

You always base your minis, so why not place your paint pots on an attractive base? :grin:

The rest looks smexy though, especially the scenery and the monster bucket....i mean case.
