So the lawsuit is over and it looks like that Chapter House Studio has come out on top. While they were not really gone they did slow down on creating new items.
I saw a video on some barriers they planning to bringing out. I am reminded of Brush 4 Hire's own barriers
While I am not really excited about his ADL I am did find Chapter House Studio's Facebook page shows other things they are working on like these rail arms for broadsides
Since GW has once again left us hanging for a model if we want to play with certain units we have to scratchbuild them. One unit I am looking at are Shrikes.
There are several ways to accomplish representing these models they all include
1. a warrior or ravener body
2. bits to add wings
The first option I saw (and actually did to make my Parasite of Mortex) was using some wings from a Vampire Counts model and a ravener body.
A second option I found on a fellow blogger page. Xenos and Proud has a tutorial on making them with gargoyle wings with warrior bodies.
I found that Forgeworld has an upgrade kit to make some shrikes.
This brings us back to Chapter House Studios. They had these pictures on their Facebook page.
this kit not only has the wings but gives us a different head crest and most important bit better feet. I am pretty excited by these and hope they are on the market soon. I am eager to add some shrikes to my hive fleet.
Tomorrow I will go over the pros and cons I see with using these guys on the field. I will compare them to my favorite fast attack unit the raveners.
