WHFB: DE Spruetastic

One iof the new units for Dark Elves are Bleak Swords…basically swordsmen. I spent the last few days finishing off assembling them:

Yes, all thirty of them.

They are the basic core troops and come as a kit with options for swords/spears/RXBs. Fairly basic models with a basic upright stance just changing arms and heads. Most fiddly bit is the crest, thouuh that said IMHO it makes them look better than the old models, and brings them in line with the rest of the current and former ranges. I got through assembling them 10 at a time – don’t try more the glue fumes and sheer boredom will make you make mistakes.

The down side…

You end up with piles and piles of half used sprues.

As I inevitably bought more than I needed, there has been a growing pile of such sprues in the Playroom. Half of them I kept on the off chance I might need some of the spare components…yeah right…

So whilst finishing off the new models I decided to wade through the pile of sprues and systematically cleanse them. Fortunately a new player is on hand to take the left overs. The rest is a waste of plactis, not good for the environment. Again, luckily, I have a council who has a half decent recycling scheme than can cope with nearly all plastic waste, so this pile of sprues will soon be like a dead parrot – no more !
