Hello everyone!

ShaneHM here reporting on my shiny new army with battle report to go along with it.  For those that don’t know me, I ran the 40k league at Game Empire: San Diego for almost 7 years.  I play in tournaments once or twice a year (and tend to do well), but I usually prefer a more leisurely pace to my competitive fun.  Enough about me though!

GW has announced the new Necron models for the May release.

Triarch Stalker

Tomb Blades

Canoptek Wraiths

Canoptel Spyder

and several character models.

 

You can see all the images here.

 

My favorite model from this wave is the Canoptek Wraith.  With the said the Necron image has changed a bit too much to really get into them.  I like the old image a lot more.

GW has announced the April releases and they are full of the new Empire models.  They went ahead and made a video of it.    Here it is.

 

 

You can also visit  Games Workshop to se all of the models, including finecast.

 

I, for the first time in a long time, am happy with some of these models.  My favorite is Karl Franz, On Deathclaw.
