Ulthwe Wraithguard – OOP

So I have finally got to painting my wraithguard after maybe 16 years of own them 🙂

It took a while, I need to learn how to speed paint and not care about every single thing lining up perfectly 🙁

But here they are:

And here is the sort of not really well documented journey.

The Metal Thunderhawk Gunship

First of all… Its arrived!!! It arrived!!!!! arghh fucking hell its arrived 😀

I’m excited, but now I can’t decide, am I meant to build it? Or leave it in the awe shockingly lovely box? Currently in my room there is no where to display it, I’m moving on the 11th so I will hopefully finally have a display cabinet.

I had no idea that it weighed so much, I think somebody telling you it weighs a lot and you experiencing exactly how much it weighs are two very different things. It hurt my hands slightly lifting it.

Anyway its here. My initial reaction was just wow. The box looks amazing, good on you Games Workshop, good on you for making something so amazing and only making 500 or maybe 1000 of them. I can’t quite do justice of how nice the box really is. For some reason I expected a cheap feeling box, not lovely thick heavy wood.

The Original Press Release

This is the chap that inspired me into buying it. I remember my manager at Brent Cross’s store telling me how the Prince of Brunei’s son walking into the Plaza store and just ordering 2 of these. BOy was I jealous. Now I finally have one. Only took me 16 years and to be honest I think its sooner than I expected.

Well here are the photos, sort of. By that I mean they are awful photos.
