Unfortunately my work week has been extremely busy this week and I’ve not managed to get any painting time in yet. This means that my Imperium backlog is slowly mounting up, with the list now standing at:
- Space Marine Lieutenant
- 3 Assault Intercessors
- 3 Necron Warriors
- 3 Skorpekh Destroyers
- 1 Plasmacyte
Still, with the paint scheme I’m going for on the Necrons, I know those at least will be fairly quick to do.
I mentioned at the end of the article last week what good value issue 4 is, and its worth repeating now. In this issue you receive a pot of Leadbelcher paint worth £2.75 plus three Skorpekh Destroyers and a Plasmacyte. As I also mentioned the equivalent kit on Games Workshop goes for £34.50 on the Games Workshop site:
For an issue worth £8 this is a bargain, with nearly £40 worth of goodies included. You’re also given a lovely thick battle matt to replace the smaller one given to you in issue 1.
The issue itself is the same as the others so far with lore, building and painting guides. The lore this week covers the creation of a Space Marine and their progression within a chapter. You’re given the obligatory battle record for the Skorpekh Destroyers and the more I see of these battle records the more I love them.
You’re also given the biggest battle to date where you can line up your Lieutenant and Assault Intercessors against the Skorpekh Destroyers and Plasmacyte. I will play through these scenarios once I have painted the models and post the results here to create my own little story of the war between the Void Dragons and Necrons.
Next weeks issue sees a Space Marine Captain enter the fray, and this model is one that is unique to the Imperium magazine series as it is currently unavailable through the Games Workshop website.
Solo Wargaming for your Favourite Games
I’m in the process of creating a series of Wargaming Aids which allow players to play their favourite games in a single player format against an AI controlled enemy army. To find out more on this click here.
