"WAAAAAGH!" the battle cry that spreads fear and panic throughout the Imperium, in fact wider, with the Tau Empire having also felt the raw power brutality of the Orks.
White Dwarf this month concentrates on the release of the Orks for 2014. Interestingly Games Workshop seem to be following the same release schedule they did for the Wood Elves; get your big model out first. With the Treeman that was a no-brainer, but with the Gorkanaut/ Morkanaut kit I'm not sure this was the way to go!
It will be interesting to see what the community think of this model - because frankly I think it's underwhelming. Boxes of multi-part Orks would have been the release to really interest me, and that's what the rumours say are next. So let's have a look at this week's White Dwarf, which also sees the release of a new spray and a great little piece on Objective Markers. + + More after the Jump + +
You may have seen my tinkering around with my Dark Eldar forces recently - well it's on a bit of a momentum now, so I thought it was time to start a Project: Dark Eldar section to the site where I can out them up as the force grows.
For me, the Dark Eldar are Jes Goodwin's crowning glory. They are so beautifully deadly, so intricate and seductive in their violence - how can you not be lured in.
A force that doesn't so much shine brightly in the stars, but they absorb the very darkness and inhabit it!
Hope you enjoy the new Project: Dark ELdar section
Over the last week I've been starting on my Dark Eldar force. Happily I started on the excellent Reavers which after trial and error came out pretty well.

Dreamforge have done a rather sizeable update this morning, and after much conversation in the community, have shown preview images of their female Stormtroopers.
After extensive body work, these Special Forces-trained warrior women look pretty damn cool. Notice their different weapons to reflect their Special Forces status. There are plans for alternate heads too.
It's really great to see a company being so responsive to the fan base and giving them what they want!
So what do you think? Would you add these to your force?
I have recently been experimenting with using Nuln Oil on Macragge Blue for my War Hounds Space Marines and the experiment with using the Citadel Washes was a success!
Because Nuln Oil is a black I wanted to try the wash Citadel had designed for blue; Drakenhof Nightshade. The colour itself is very good, perfect in fact, but the coverage is not. It doesn't flow as well as Nuln Oil, nor does it seem to provided the flat contrast one would want.
The Drakenhof Nightshade may be a better colour match for vehicles or larger models, but the mix seems thicker than the Nuln Oil, meaning it pools in the wrong places and sometimes doesn't staying in the recesses. It could be my batch - but as far as miniatures go, I'd stick to Nuln Oil for that dark blue look you're be after.

The lure was too great - these have been in my collection for years and I just had to give it a go!
I've got two more on the bench, so stay tuned for all three in the next little while plus a review of the kit.
Suffice to say - these were an absolute pleasure to make and paint...
Here's a 20-something year old paint job for you from my Legio Ballista force.
Look how steady my hands were back then - all those icons were done freehand...
