(Almost) the last part of the plan...

I bought the Dwarf gyrocopter kit yesterday. I really don't like assembling the GW metal kits.

It's almost the last part of the plan for a tactically more mobile Dwarf army (I have to buy some new LC, as apparently the Empire Pistolliers (bought and painted as a Rare Choice Dogs of war selection) are not usable in a tournament army, even in the 'counts as' role).

I've commented previously that I've succumbed to the Artillery lure, with a Cannon, although that made sense as providing something that might take down larger monsters/characters, and after all, how much fun can it be having an artillery piece that might blow up in your face??? (Definitely more fun than a ferret down the front of your trousers, as they say - not that I've tried that too often.. honestly). But this tactical mobility thing is big in my mind.. just gotta see if I can make it work.

The down side: the kit is all metal, and I hate assembling GW metal kits...


  1. Robin, Robin, Robin...they've well and truly sucked you in, haven't they?

    (Refrains of Money Money Money are heard in the background...)


  2. ...that is, if you're gaming in a '70s discotheque...

  3. Yes but why do you hate putting the metal kits together?

  4. They are such a (*&%$&&()(&* to put together. the super glues never seem to hold, and even with the quick setting spay i have that acts as a setting agent for the super glue, the bits still often come apart.. drives me insane.. give me a welding torch any time LOL
