Special Delivery!


Well lookie what we have here! I arrive home after my exam thankful that the cramping is subsiding and there are 3 boxes outside my door. A massive order from Wayland (please click their banner and buy stuff..lol). Took 2 weeks to order 3 overseas boxes from GW through Wayland (shockingly they didn't have enough stock to cover 6 HG & 4 Ravenwing Battleforces) and then ship it to Australia from the UK. Very impressive. My frist actual purchase from Wayland (have had e-mail correspondence with them before) and am very impressed. I've also put up my little baggie of gant/ravener bits so that's pretty much all of what needs to be assembled and painted in 6 weeks (+ 2 tyrannofexes, Tyrant & guard) and I think I'm going to need more (yes more) gants. Also need to order bases!

I've got a final exam on Friday (still maintaining my Distinction average, thanks for asking *strokes ego*) and then I'm off to the races with these guys. So if anyone has any spare Gant bodies/fleshborers or a 3rd edition Carnifex, I'm highly interested...Vince hurry up and show me yours. Once this tournament is over, Blood Rodeo is in town! So whilst we wait for those happy days, enjoy the sight of these wonderfully unopened boxes (there was also an air-filled bag for free! that made the purchase really) on my tiled floor in front of my TV cabinent (cookies for whoever can guess what's in it!...).

Yum, do want.

Bigfishboy said...

Very nice little order, so how much did all that cost on wayland?

Matt Varnish said...

I love how you mention " Blood Rodeo is in town!" Like its a boy band, with a Twilight theme, purely to get every tween girl interested....

How are you building your tyrannofexes?

I did mine like so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFjp0Lzn4LY yes its a video lol

Vinsanity said...

Woot! Once we are done with exams its onto painting 1750 point armies in a few weeks! :P My fex should be fine for your tyranno conversions, ill give it to you when we next meet up...

clt40k said...

Nice good luck on exams

AbusePuppy said...

I've got some spare Gant bodies and all, but I'm pretty sure postage to Ausland would be killer. Helluva nice purchase, though, I still need to round out my Hive Guard here and maybe finally sink for some Shrikes/Harpies so I can play around with those.

Brother Loring said...

How many times do I have to tell you... Dark Angels are not cool!

I'm gonna have to try out this Wayland Games... 3++ link or not??

Kirby said...

@Bigfishboy; Was about 520 AUD inc. S&H. So like 60% off Australian RRP.

@Matt Varnish; it's not a boy band? Will check that out, need some ideas for Tervigons (so if anyone has any). My T-Fex can be found on this blog somewhere...hell it's showing up in the LinkWithin widget. Click it. =D

@Vinsanity; that's implying free. accepted!

@clt40k; someone cares, thank you!

@Puppy; ya shipping from US can be a pain. Those HG are going to kill me, I hate all metal models. Will see if we can rangle something up with USpost if you're interested in selling the Gants. BTW post your 'ard Boyz results!

@Loring; 3++

Messanger of Death said...

You can't be serious about the 60% off including S&H... looks like I ma be able to fund a Sanguinary Guard army sooner than I thought :D

Your such a mature age student for caring about Distinction. Only good thing about them is being able to slack off for exams (like only needing to get 7% to pass subjects).

Messanger

Kirby said...

Well it's $987 from GW w/o S&H and it cost me IIRC $515 w/S&H which was I think $30-40. Make sure you don't use paypal conversion rates though :P (buy through the Wayland banner! lol).

And ya I don't have to do well in my exams considering I missed out on HDs by 1 mark for 2 subjects...but I'd like a high grade avg. to get my Masters/PhD lol. + I'm not old :(.

Messanger of Death said...

Would you be able to explain the paypal conversion rate thingy (pretty please)*.

Missing out on Ds and HDs is unfun... especially when lecturers decide to cross mark lolz

Messanger

*is it similar to conversion rate fees used by banks?

Kirby said...

Yes to conversion/paypal rate. I.e. 5c worse than what it should be. Wayland is actually really good in conversion rates comparitively though the AUD is getting weaker atm :(. Gee I wonder why *looks at mining tax* no wai!

Or normal curve mark. I hate Normal curves. Where do you live/go to uni?

Messanger of Death said...

Western Suburbs which means I go to UWS Paramatta*.

I end up ranting about my dislike of Krudd on YTTH... fucking around with the mining industry, nurses and teachers

Messanger

*getting home before 6 was more important than going to Usyd or UTS

Kirby said...

Sydney sucks these days. I did my undergrad @ Macquaire and doing post-grad @ UWS Bankstown (2 hour drive FTL but diversity FTW). Should meet up at Parra store for games sometimes. One of my mates does Law (lol) @ UWS Parra (i.e. Vinsanity, the BT n00b).

Messanger of Death said...

I'd love to meet up to play games but my army is a mess at the moment*.

I'll probably have a Sanguinary Guard army put together and painted before my Black Templars get finished.**

Good luck with your exam tomorrow and enjoy your 5 week holiday :)

Messanger

*part of the 4th Ed foot slogging has had paint stripped while part of it is still on sprues. While the mechanised part is either still in the box or was ruined by my younger self
**need to order them first.

Vinsanity said...

Lol Law and Economics degree at UWS :D Gunna have trouble finding a job methinks...

Anywho, Ive got an exam tomorrow, on monday and on thurs so after that, I can get cracking on the BT...

PS - What degree are you doing at UWS Parramatta Messanger of Death? If its economics or business, I bet I have had classes with you lol...

Messanger of Death said...

I'm doing nursing. Good luck with your exam. Which building are you in EE, EA or EB?

"Gunna have trouble finding a job methinks..."
That is going to be all of us... thanks to Krudd even nurses and teachers are finding it hard to get jobs*

Messanger

*not exactly his fault but always nice to blame him for something; especially since he hasn't done much to help the health care system

Kirby said...

We can blaim Rudd for everything. Like turning a surplus into a deficit within a few months of taking offense! You fail like list tailoring fails.

You can borrow some of Vinsanity's models. He has oh...200 armies or something. Make sure you order Sang Guard through Wayland =D, it's cheaper as seen above!

Messanger of Death said...

I actually had a look on their website to see how much it will cost. Lets just say my tax return will be spent very quickly. And I'll use the banner on your blog ;)

"He has oh...200 armies or something."
lolz when I first read that I thought it said miniatures.

Messanger

Vinsanity said...

All nighter studying before exam ftl :(

You would be insane if you didn't buy through Wayland imo, the Aussie GW prices are outrageous!

Hehe not 200 armies, maybe 100 or so? :P

After exams, I hope to get a fair few games in before the tourney so I guess me and Kirbs will be going to City store and Parra to test our might against anyone who wants to play us. Is anyone up for maybe going to City store next weekend? (the 26th and 27th June)...

SneakyDan said...

Kirby - Suggesting you have a look at ironhalo for your bases. Good pricing, great bases, me and fester just did a bulk order from there, snappy response time.
