(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...

  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
