Island of Blood Sails In

My local store got its Island of Blood in this past Tuesday, and promptly doled them out!  I picked some copies up, and man is it nice!  I plan on building a nice Skaven and High Elf foundation from some boxes, and passing the rest on to Ebay.  I'll put up some links when the auctions are made.

Auctions are here:  http://shop.ebay.com/btuite1/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

The box set contains several things I really like.  Having a small rulebook is a fantastic thing, considering the enormous size and weight of the hardcover version.  More dice and templates are always welcome, as I'm always losing my scatter dice and templates at tournaments.  Every one of the sculpts is fantastic and highly detailed, and could be a centerpiece to an army.


  1. Congrats! If you have a moment, could you mention at some point why it is so nice? Is it the overall quality or the sculpts etc?

  2. How many of these things did you buy?!


  3. I participated in bits and bobs of five boxes. Between Ebay and local sales, it should end up running me a a couple hundred dollars for the three hundred Skaven and Elf infantry, ten Ellyrians, two of each weapon team, one of each character, the rat ogres and moulders, and a book. I look at it as a good way to actually get going on Skaven, with a High Elf bonus.
