Although we’re already into the second week of December, there are still a number of worthwhile events and promotions scheduled at Games Workshop stores for the remainder of the month. These include:
– Parent Appreciation Weekend
– Twas the Saturday Before Christmas
– The End of the Path
– Gorbag’s Waaaaagh Begins!
For full details of each event, check the events schedule on the GW website or contact your local store.
I’m looking forward to all the fun scheduled for this month at GW stores and hoping to spend as much time there as possible partaking of it. I’m also really looking forward to the new store opening in Olney, MD. Opening day for the store will be December 18 if all goes according to plan for GW, while my first visit to the store will be on the 20th when I will run the conversion clinic detailed in my posts here on BoLS a few days ago. Please see those earlier posts for details if you wish to attend. If anyone needs more information on the new store, please contact GW US at 1-800-394-GAME.
Meanwhile, my hobby time these days is divided between updating my Eldar army, adding forces to my Chaos legion and working on more large models for Apocalypse. I also just completed my collection of Phoenix Lords first begun oh so long ago. When painted, I’ll be able to run the Phoenix Court of Khaine on the battlefield. After seeing what these gods of combat were able to accomplish in the battle report in this month’s White Dwarf, I’m looking forward to seeing these legendary figures fighting some battles for me too. Of course, the main reason I began collecting the Phoenix Lords is because they are just gorgeous models, perhaps some of Jes Goodwin’s best work ever and that is really saying something because most of his work is aesthetically amazing. I’m a huge fan of nearly anything he draws, paints or sculpts.
So what pet projects are our readers working on these days? Feel free to provide a brief project update using the comment area below. Perhaps your project report will inspire someone else to finish building or painting a few models themselves.
