Review - Firedrake by Nick Kyme

It has been a while since I have had a new Black Library novel to read, but I knew that when I did get one I wanted Firedrake to be one of those I read.  After reading the first novel Salamander (review can be found here), I knew I had to read the next in the series. 

The review will be after the cut.

Rethinking Orks

So, I have managed to get a few games in with my Orks and I enjoying playing them, however I feel like I need to re-work my list a little.  First of all, here is my current list I have been using (1500pts).

Mannfred Von Carstein; Pt II

An update on Mannfred.  At the moment, I quite like him.  He is still well in progress, I have the metallics to paint and his staff.  The top of it I am going for a stone look, I am not sure on the staff though.  I think doing it grey would not work that well next to his surcoat and cloak.

Mannfred Von Carstein; Pt I

It has been a while.  My light's bulb died recently, so I have to wait for a new one which arrived today.  I have started work on my Secret Santa model, Mannfred Von Carstein.  I like the skin, the blue flesh kinda looks like dead flesh to me.  The red cloth doesn't show up that well in the pictures, but I like it's contrast with the skin; the cloak and jacket will most likely be black.  The brown leather is just a basecoat, it will be shaded and highlighted properly by the end.

A quick update, I have not been very active recently for various reasons.  The foremost is because the bulb in my light blew, and I am waiting a replacement to arrive; so no painting.  My current painting project is Mannfred Von Carstien, the older version.  This guy:
