The Wolves are... nearly here!

Well well well, it was a big weekend in Horus Heresy Land, especially for me with Leman Russ and the Burning of Prospero box coming along.

I've got my pre-order in, like everyone else I imagine, and I've booked Monday off. I don't usually get a day to myself but have been meaning to take one for a couple of weeks, so this is great timing!

My plan is to get Russ himself washed, stuck together and then at least base coated. I'm thinking of adding a couple of conversions to the model, if only because I imagine half the world will be buying this one and I want mine to look a little different. Any suggestions?

Look at this miniature though, how nice is that?!

I'll also be picking up the Burning of Prospero. I think I will be turning all of those Mk3 models in to Boarding marines, I want two squads of those in my army in total. The terminators I am hoping to swap with Dad Rich for his Cataphractii from Betrayal at Calth. If not, I actually kinda like them so may keep them or eBay them (I prefer the Cataphractii armour myself).

I do have one question, you could say it's a 'burning' question (we're dads, I can tell dad jokes...)
Is this guy the first 28mm scale space marine to have eyebrows sculpted on him?!

It won't really matter to me though as I'll be switching his head out for a helmet (I just can't do bare heads justice...).

That's it from me, just a short one today. Have you got your pre-orders in? What are your plans for the box set? Let us know in the comments below. – A blog about Warhammer 40k and the Horus Heresy by four Dads
