A word to the wise

"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers, all of which are true and terrifying to know." - Inquisitor Czevak Turns out, the answers are; "Oh, just a few days", "Our friends will be here shortly" and "We have quite the appetite".

Hibernation... And Dawn of War III

Well it has been a while since my last post here. With the new Dawn of War III announcement, I figured I best update this blog with where things are at. The project is still going, however buying a house and saving for display space has been prioritised before the rest is sorted out.

Let's just say a lot has been finished off in bulk, and the dilemma of storage has become a very real problem. Life naturally has jumped in the way and kept my bank balance from affording the built in display case... which will take up a space of 50cm D, 330cm W and 220cm High. Yep, lots of shelving with glass sliding lockable doors. Not exactly cheap, but far more cost effective than anything else out there.

Housing over 2200 miniatures is going to be an interesting feat to say the least, and given its in a darker spot of the house the shelves will need to be LED lit (hopefully in the Craftworld orange colours). No doing things by halves!

So what happens beyond this? Well, the rest of the beasties have been batched out to be sorted year on year until the project is done. Originally, the 20th anniversary date was slated for November 2017, although this may be the absolute earliest the Warhost is finished by.

Keeping in mind... there is an entire Harlequin contingent force yet to be dealt with... and those buggers are finicky to build let alone paint. I'm already dreading the repairs I have to do for the miniatures busted in transport... I may be a mad collector, however I'm not a mad modeler...

GW and FW need to lay off all the new Eldar stuff, I can't keep up at this pace unless someone has a winning lotto ticket laying around. If so, please get in touch.

For those of you who have missed it... here's the announcement trailer for Dawn of War III... keep an eye out for the Wraithknights of happiness around the 2 minute mark.
