Dark Vengeance - The Slow Mans Unboxing
So, onto the box set itself. I won't run through the individual components of the box as these can be found in a million places across the internet. What I will say is that the contents of the box is, in my opinion, absolutely phenomenal.
The detail on all the models, from the Renegade Militia through to the Hellbrute, the bog-standard Tactical Marines to the Limited Edition Interrogator-Chaplain is top notch. I haven't started painting any of them, but I am very much looking forward to it!
The value for money the box represents is breathtaking - buying the models separately would cost in excess of the £64, nevermind including the mini rulebook, Dark Vengeance missions, quick start rule sheets and the templates, dice and rulers also included. Hats off to Games Workshop on this one, a quality set at a bargainous price.
It has, however, given me one headache on which I cannot work out what to do. This problem is the Dark Angels Interrogator-Chaplain Seraphicus. I am not and will probably never collect Dark Angels. I have no need for another Chaplain type fella within the ranks of my Space Wolves. I want to sell off all the non-Chaos stuff from the DV box set (excluding the mini rulebook, I am keeping that so that I can stop making up the rules as I go along!). But I so very badly want to build and paint Mr Seraphicus, the model is too nice to let go of without getting to paint it first.
So my plan is to build him, paint him, get photos of him and post them on here, then sell him off to a loving home where he can join his battle brothers in many, many battles in the future.
And now, back to my Grotesques...
