Tyranid Barbed Heirodule!

Well then. My blogging on hobby and gaming related stuff has started to follow the pattern of this little gem of my collection – a little too long in the updating! I bought this Tyranid Barbed Heirodule in a Forgeworld purchase WAAAY back in mid 2011. It’s been sitting in it’s package, untouched, in my hobby projects box for over 3 years. 3. YEARS. I finally decided to get around to working on this, after I’d put together a large amount of my Tyranids, took a 2-year hiatus to focus solely on Nurlge CSM’s. I’m as of December of last…

Book Review: The Horus Heresy Book 1 – Betrayal

My good friend John recently ordered and just received the much-anticipated Forgeworld book “The Horus Heresy Book 1: Betrayal”. I haven’t seen the book yet, but John offered up a review and I gladly took him up on posting his thoughts here on Cranky Old Gamer. After reading this and the commentary in White Dwarf’s latest release, I think it’s safe to say that I’ll not only get the book, but I’m seriously considering that pre-Heresy army (now only to find the time and money…) Check out the review below – enjoy! And thanks John! Review follows: I just received…
