Hi mate, I ought to be up to my nuts in plastic minis at this time of the evening, but I thought I'd up date my blog instead. I've been busy building and buying of late. I have just received my order of 15 termigaunts from Wayland (ordered on 14th March). However, they were not able to supply the hive guard unit that I asked for. I have also contacted Maelstrom about these models and they are also unable to supply them. As a final role of the money saving dice I have contacted my mate who works in a gaming store (the chap who used to manage a GW) and asked if his store can supply. If not, then I am afraid it will have to a trip down to the local GW to blow £36.60 on 3 blister packs - containing models which will be a pig to put together ... Like you, I currently have a bee in my bonnet about GW metals. I now have built: a trygon (undercoated and based_ 20 hormagaunts (undercoated and based) 20 termigaunts (undercoated) 3 warriors (undercoated) 10 gene stealers Still to go: Tervigon 3 zoanthropes one more trygon the 3 hive guard that I do not possess as yet. I want to get the zoanthropes built and based this weekend. I am wondering if I can get away with just usind super glue and not pinning them. I would also like to get the second trygon in to some sort of shape - you have to build these big blighters in stages to give the glue time to set in the various sections. If I can get these things done this weekend, then I am course to have a built, undercoated, possibly based and partly painted army to face you with. Needless to say, these trhings must happen! P.S. don't make your army too competative, as I have yet to use mine!
