Giveaway results! ...And some old Ad-Mech goodness.

I wanted to say thank you all once again for all the kind words and encouragement over the years, and the outpouring of comments and congratulations on the 500th post was truly humbling. You folks are awesome, and I'm truly glad that my inane scribblings have provided entertainment and inspiration! I went through the list of commenters and fed them into the randomization cogitator to determine who gets the Rogue Trader rule book and the winner is...

Craig Bowles!

Drop me an email at moonlight (at) cold-moon.com with your address and I'll pop the book in the mail to ya!

In other news, I finally finished up some models I've been sort of dilly-dallying over for quite a while. A whole mess of old models in fact, forming the basis of the Magos Covenant for the ever-growing Taghmata Omnissiah force.


The majority of them are from the old Skullz promotional set, plus a couple old metal tech-priests that had been lurking on the shelves for ages. At this point there's actually a viable painted army taking shape, with HQ and Troops models completed - still quite a lot to do though! I recently ordered up a mess of bits from various companies (Anvil, MaxMini, Blight Wheel and more) to come up with a couple large units of Tech-Thrall Adsecularis - the basic cannon-fodder rabble that gladly give their lives for the glory of the Omnissiah. Forge World has also been showing off a bunch of new Mechanicus models that have my wallet cringing in fear... Might be an expensive 4th quarter!

Those old Skulls sculpts were really fun. Lots of silly detail that they should never have left as "collectable" and instead made available to the general public at large.

Very nice group shot - you seem to be able to spit a unit like this out faster than ever sir, well done.

(Congrats to Craig as well!)

Annoyingly they never did the Skulls promotion over here. I did look to pick some up a while ago off ebay but the prices just got silly. Nice to see a set getting some use.

Beautiful!

Hearty congrats to Craig, too!

Someday I'll be able to score a set from eBay...

@Dai: Indeed! I wish they'd done more with the ad-mech back in the day, but I have to admit I'm really jazzed that FW is giving them some love!

@Rictus: Aye, they seem to be getting harder to find these days. This is my last of three sets I've had over the years and I think they will be going in the 'never sell' cabinet!

@Admiral Drax: Thanks mate!

@CJ Kilbride: Definitely worth keeping an eye out, every so often a set will pop up for a reasonable price. They are fun (albeit dated) sculpts!

I love the look o fthe old Skullz models, especially those chump servitors with the block heads. Can't wait to see how your Tech-Thralls turn out.

Congrats Craig!
