Dear Diary - JACKPOT MK2!

I feel that my recent run of bad luck on the gaming tables has been nicely off-set by todays bit of fortune!

Remember a few months back a guy that i knew from work gave me all of those Codicies and Imperial Armour books? Well today i recieved the MOTHERLOAD from him today, and this time in miniatures!


Yep, its a good as it looks! Most of this lot is still on the sprues and about 95% complete as well! We have here:

Imperial Guard Battleforce - Complete
Space Marine Supression force (2 Whirlwinds and a Landspeeder) - Complete
Space Marine Scouts - Complete
Dark Angles Bike Squadron - Complete
Master of the Ravenwing - Complete
3 Space Marine Attack Bikes - Compete
Space Marine Bike - Complete
Black Templars Rhino - Complete

Theres also 2 MASSIVE boxes of various Space Marine bits and pieces. I reckon i can make at least 2 Tactical Squads and 1 Deathwing Terminator Squad out of the bits there, and then some. Theres a load of Black Reach Orks in there, a brand new set of  templates, some brass etch Imperial Eagles to.

As for the ready made stuff:

Theres a Bastion, a Space Marine Dreadnought, an Interceptor Gun and a Vindicator! Sweet!

Quite the haul i think you'll agree! I think that this is the Fate's way of saying:

 "Now you have these plastic Cadians, why don't you get some of those sweet Forgeworld Cadian Hazardous Environment suits?"


"Hey, have you seen those sweet Astral Claws Converstion sets offa Forgeworld? Now you have a load of plastic Space Marines, why don't you make a few?"

I think it might be a daemon of the Warp whispering to me.....either way, these are some dam good ideas! But hang on, it gets better!

I go back on Friday to get EVEN MORE stuff from his house! More on that lot when i get it!

  1. I'll trade/buy any Deff Koptas as long as they are not assembled... ? E-mail me at if you're interested. :)

  2. Just WOW!

    Could you be a bit more lucky! There's a whole load of jealousy coming from me right here. What a mega haul and you say there is even more to come.

  3. I need to move to Wales... !

  4. Nice Haul! You are one lucky Gaurdsman :)

  5. Damn! I wish I had mates like him (although I can't really complain since my friends are quite generous when I go looking for various bits that I need). Very lucky mate!

  6. Does this person not know of ebay where such unwanted things can be turned back into cash? You have a good friend their, you need to take him out to dinner a couple of times.

  7. Yep, i am one lucky S-O-B!

    @ Skarvald the Troll-faced - All i've got here in the way of Deffkoptas is literally half of one! Not sure where the other half of the hull went, so its only gonna be good for bitz!

    @ eriochrome - Yeah i did mention this to him but he couldn't be bothered! I said the same when he gave me all those books as well! He just wanted to get rid, and see that it all went to a good home! I can certainly provide that!

    Can't wait to see what he has for me tomorrow!

  8. mmmmmm shiny! You lucky lucky man!
