Remora Drone Stealth Fighters........
Hi just a quick post, found out today that my good lady does listen to me when im chatting about my hobby and model preferences, I had a look in a small brown cardboard box that i hadn't noticed before and low and behold two Tau Stealth Fighters, happy days!!, I took them out and examined them because through reading other sites ive learned that forge world kits often have substandard parts due to the moulding process, im happy to report except for a couple of issues the parts are fine and im looking forward to building and painting them, but for now their back in the box and put back in the naffest hiding place you could think of (she's really got to work on that) as i assume they are for my birthday, so i'll update you guys further in a couple of weeks.

Devilfish.........Hi, this time I thought I would paint up a Devilfish for my twelve strong squad of Firewarrors that are near completion (more on those later), firstly I have to say you get a whole lot of kit for the price, meaning its rather large and quite substantial in comparison to the Space Marine equivalent, the Rhino, its also very easy to put together the only trouble I had were the engines, they both came in two pieces and didn't quite match up perfectly, but with a little back scraping and a small amount of green stuff I had it sorted in no time.
Again I went heavy on the damage/wear, I really like the look of this method for my Tau I can imagine they have been on a campaign for months, possibly years and as a result their kit and vehicle's/craft look severely battle worn.
The kit comes with a cracking transfer sheet and so offers loads of different variations to keep everyone happy, I didn't go too wild with the base for this model because it sits quite low, so I kept it simple just a few rocks of various sizes and two clumps of long sun bleached grass.

Hi guys, I have just had delivery of my very own KR al 200 figure case from a buddy of mine Alan who runs his own on line miniatures business called Fat Spider, at a good price I might add, and I've got to say im quite chuffed with it, it came in a choice of two colours black with silver trim or all silver, as you can see I opted for the silver, it came with three 36 section trays big enough for 40mm bases (terminator sized models) and four 40 section trays suitable for 25mm bases (firewarriors/space marines ect), it comes with two combination locks a carry handle and carry strap.
The quality's good at the price although I did think it was a bit light but I suppose it should be as its aluminium after all.
I had a look on the official KR site and I think some of those custom trays will have to be bought for my larger models/vehicles and so on, all in all im really happy with my purchase, its just what I needed for my models transportation requirements.
