While browsing in WH Smiths (UK high street stationers) today, I came across the first issue of a part works that looks like it will be covering the 40K universe.
This first issue is at the give-away price of £1.99, I say this mainly because it includes three full pots of paint.
The full package includes part 1 of the magazine collection, a sprue of 3 Space Marine Intercessor models with bases, 3 full pots of paint, these being, Macragge Blue, Abaddon Black and Retributor Armour (a lovely warm gold metalic), a starter paint brush and an 8 panel, space marine poster.
Part 2 will go up to £4.99 and then the standard price of each issue will be £7.99
I can see this being popular with GW fans and frankly for my £1.99, just the paint and brush alone makes me happy. I will probably make the three models up and eventually use them with a box of Cadian infantry and a bi-ped walker that have been glued up and set to one side for some future Sci-Fi skirmish gaming.
I hope that at least some people come across this in the high street and it draws them or their family members into dabbling with wargaming - who knows! For the rest of us CHEAP PAINT!
