Sly's New Movie: Bullet To The Head?

A movie advertisement on a bus passed by me the other day, so I googled it up and much to my surprise, good ol' le soldat expendible Sly is back (again), baby!

Here's the poster in all it's glory:

Pretty spry for a pensioner! In fact, the poster made me think of an old entry from that arcane curiousity, the Codex: Catachan Jungle Fighters (4th ed., still available as a PDF download from the GW website here). Take a look at a sample of the old codex interior art if you don't believe me:

Coincidence? Despite a 10-year difference, I think not! GW better get their act together, I sense lawsuit! :)

Plastic Stormtroopers IV: Size Comparison

Here's a photo comparing the size of my plastic storm trooper / warrior acolyte conversions to that of the original Cadian Kasrkin metal model. Not bad, eh?

Amazing what interchangeable multi-part multi-source kits, a little imagination, and some easy gluing can achieve, along with a simple paintjob.

Note: Normal service re: photo uploading, has now resumed. I'll be posting more about my brand new 2013 army very soon!
