I also Purchased a couple of Gears of Wars looking troopers, I also got some Gear 9 tokens for 40K. I should get them by this weekend. I also got a new IPOD and a Pre-Purchase of Space Marine for my X-Box 360. She also purchased for me a GI Joe toy which I asked for so that I can turn it into An Imperial Termite.
An Imperial Termite is a transport choice for Imperial Guard, Witch Hunters, Cult Mechanicus and Space Marine forces. It acts like a drop pod and those are the rules I will use for it. Here are a few shots of the original Epic scale figure and the 40K Scale that Epicast made back in the 1990's.
|Here is the smallest underground troop transport, the Termite. Released in the Summer of 1989 with rules in White Dwarf 116. also a Termite on its transport vehicle.|
|The 40K Termite from Epicast is almost identical to the Epic Emerging Termite. Seats 10 comfortably.|
|Next is the grand Mole ready to be launched with its cargo of 20 troopers.|
I just finished painting mine up while watching Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino. (It was a hoot!) Here are the pics of the model.
I also watched an interesting movie Dylan Dog: Dead of Night.
So it ends and so begins my 49th year on this globe, I hope it goes well...
