Games Workshop WH40K Stormraven Gunship or how Valentines Day came early.

Being looking at this model on some other blogs and have seen a tutorial on how it goes together and been thinking about getting one, the one stumbling block being the price and justifying it to myself but that happens with other companies products aswell and not just limited to Games Workshop.

So out shopping with the other half the weekend just gone I picked her up a few things for Valentines day she wanted (which she is now wearing and eaten??????), she asked me what I wanted so I thought some money towards this Stormraven Gunship and hey presto I have a bright large shiny box.

The point I'm trying to make is that Games Workshop is expensive at times (some people will say all the time) but it makes a quality product and I will be using the gunship for somehing not Games Workshop WH40K related as I have done before and I have posted some pictues to show how I use them for other periods.The bottom line is if I can't afford it I won't get it or if I believe its essential I save for it, if you don't but a companies product then don't be surprised when they are no longer around.

I haven't opened the box yet as I'm trying to make a futile point to the other half as she munches her way through several packets of Hotel Chocolat product and says how comfortable her new footwear are..........and what is she really getting for Valentines Day?

The bright shiny box in my possession.

A finished Stormraven Gunship, mine will not be red or probably this well made.

  4. Well that is the way to build suspense for next week's episode when le chocolat supplies have run low and you've still got the box to open. Will he try to purloin chocolat if she falls asleep? And would that force additional gifts, when the day itself rolls around? Stay tuned.

    It has been determined over here that red sports cars get a lot more tickets as they annoy the cops even more than sports cars generally do.

  5. Hey, Happy VD! (Not venereal disease) No better present than the one you 'point out'.

    I like the pics of your Valkyrie and the Neo Soviet general.
