Merry Christmas to All!

I hope everyone got the model kits or books they were hoping for! Here is my Christmas present to myself, the MKIV Ironclad from Forge World. I love the way the hunter killer missiles mount on this model (from the back of the torso top). The detail is great, and while I'm not 100% sold on the eagle headed seismic hammer, I do like the novelty of it.

Happy holidays and seasons greetings to all. I'll be back in the new year with more of my Ultramarines, more book reviews and more modelling and painting projects. Until then, merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!


  1. Merry Christmas, Chris. No model kits, but plenty of books and board games. Catch you in the new year!

  2. Happy Christmas!

    In the new year I hope you take a moment or two to share your impressions of the ForgeWorld dreadnought kit.

    I've used their arms before but never a whole dreadnought. Tell us what you think!

  3. I generally like the FW dread kits. They are easier to build than the standard GW kits, and usually more detailed. The lack of arms makes them customizable, but only in so far as you are paying for what you want. My main complanit has almost always been the hosing from the engine back breaks when I clean it because of how it is atatched to the sprue. I still have the MKIV Ironclad in pieces, and plan to do another post for it when it is built.
