I am blessed

Post by Snowfire on Tue Jul 13, 2010 10:06 pm

Ok, so after saying that I may give up the gaming side of things I find out the following today:

A GW has just opened up a half hour walk from where I live.

It is run by one of the staff from the store a few hours away from me.

This is excellent.

But the best part is while I was looking around I overheard a phone call.

Within the next week a box will arrive at GW stores. This is the TOP SECRET Fantasy Starter Set Sprues. Only the permanent staff are allowed to see them, and they won't be painted in the store.

3 weeks later, another set of sprues will arrive which can be put on display then.

I just talked to my new store owner who also started right near where I live and he also mentioned he now has his highly secret box at home being painted. He was tight lipped about what it contained however.

I was at my FLGS (not GW), and after dropping off the first 4 chainmail dice bags (they commissioned me to make them, they buy them off me and on-sell them), and the only staff member on today was building some of the new daemons.

He asked if I would help, so I got to build the new blood crushers. Simple models to assemble, but HUGE. The unit champion is as tall as the plastic daemon prince.

I'm in there enough now that I'm a regular. Which means being called on for help whilst in store. So not only do I get discount (gaming club member), but I also get gift vouchers as pay for dice bags (no need to pay tax, as I'm not being 'paid'), and get to help out with model assembly.

Next step is getting them to let me paint stuff models for display. Given enough time, I'm sure I can get a job there.

Good going Brother! Congrats!

Also, you'll probably even have more access to privileged information regarding upcoming models/codices Very Happy

Pretty good chance of that. One of the staff is an avid 40k fan of old, and wants to get back into the game eventually, but until then, is content discussing all the old and new stuff.

Brother Snowfire, pardon me for being straight forward, but WH40k will always be a part of your life. I told my wife that I was going to give up my Daemonhunter army and focus on house projects... it's been half a year and their still with me. Just as long as it doesn't get to the point of chosing between my wife and my Grey knights. In short.. this is more addicting than any known drug known to man. For that shop to show up from no where or those new top secret treasures from GW? Work of the Emperor, fate, or destiny... you chose brother and drive that NFW into the daemon.
