I was excited to say I'm glad to see you are back, and I am. But the news isn't nearly as exciting. I don't know if it means anything to you or not, but you are added to our prayers. It sounds like a rough battle ahead. I'm sure you know, but be sure to enjoy the time you've got as much as you can, if that's 5 years or 45 years.

Man, that's awful news indeed. I wish you good luck and a lot of strength in the battle ahead.

And I would just get the skycutter if I were you.

Really sorry to hear that. Best of luck. For what it's worth, I'm quite sceptical of the odds doctors give. Some people are given a few months and go on to live for decades more, so here's hoping.

Yea, I know doctors are actually contracted to give the lowest possible numbers, that way they can't be held liable for anything.

It's not actually easy to get one now a days hey.

One of my club mates recently got into Kings of War, and I had a demo, and absolutely smashed him, which is just silly knowing how bad at dice I am, but if he wants to play, he might only have me to play with, so the High Elves might get played with every now and again.

Forgot that they were out of production. Then, yeah, it's a bit trickier. Ebay has a couple that also ship to australia.

Sure I now have access to my Superannuation, and hey my Life Insurance had a Terminal illness clause, but I'm not paying $200 for a Sky cutter.

Crazy that they are that much. I think it must not have sold all that well when it was out. From what I remember they kept making most of the large kits that came out for 8th edition. Maybe they will bring it back when they bring out the elves. I thought it was weird in warhammer, but compared to a shark with a gun on it's back it's not so bad.

I'm not sure how you feel about this sort of thing, but.... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000448864156.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000013.3.2c0d5917hIsZGe&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.146401.0&scm_id=1007.13339.146401.0&scm-url=1007.13339.146401.0&pvid=243b895a-79d4-40da-8fd6-2f05cd58b4f3

Personally I wouldn't, but then I was thinking about another and on these short lived plastics........

Ah yea, I'm not a fan of re-casters, my club mates are, but I prefer to support the companies who provide me with this hobby.
I say that while a mate of mine is 3d printing some Blood Red Skies planes for me. He is printing planes that Warlord doesn't produce yet though, which I feel counts.

I've had patients live years longer than anyone thought they would. Never give up hope - if anybody's got a chance its the fighters. I'm keeping fingers crossed and wishing you all the best in this toughest of battles.

A model still in production is 100% no. Something they gave up on is a little different. Most of my Man O' War Orc fleet is somehow resin... But again, I made them myself for me, so I'm not shelling out money to someone who is profiting off someone elses work.

I'm certainly not counting myself out, I only have two months of chemo left, and then I'm free. It's my intention to go some places, see some people I only know online, and some historic places too.

I get where you're coming from dude, but it's a slippery slope. I wouldn't trust resin here in South East Queensland anyway, the damn thing would melt.

Ironically enough, I was never really a fan of the skycutter. Now they don't produce them anymore, I find myself wanting one! Hopefully they do bring them back.

Like Shannar, I got all excited when I saw your thread had been updated. But I am sorry to hear that, buddy. I'll be hoping for the best for you, you are too good a person to go so soon

Besides, the battle of Finuval Plain was more a minor skirmish anyway. A good enough summary would have been "Teclis and Malekith ran into each other. Teclis cast The Dwellers Below on Malekith with IF, and Malekith failed his Strength test." Not much more to it then that really.

No I can't ;)

Looks like a fun battle with 2 epically painted armies.

Treatment still sucks, Doctors don't like my recent MRI's, but I just keep going.

Matt's Daemon Prince charged my DragonMage, and strangely opting to attach the dragon, rather than the squishy Mage.
He only did four wounds, the dragon did a couple of wounds back, and he was also left on one wound, but I had a breath weapon ^_^

Congratulations on your victory!
With your recent update I checked the previous pictures you shared and I really like your alternative colour scheme for your high elves! I couldn't always see but it looks like this is some neat job too!
Keep us updated when you'll play the revenge ;)

I do love a good underdog... :D It's moments like this which make for memorable games.
