After a brief hiatus due to vacationing in France's lovely Bordeux region, I've finally finished the Actaeon Heavy Assault Servitor (Jaeger just didn't sound '40k' to my ears).

And here it is next to a skitarii for size referance:
Now I'm going to go back to crying quietly into my pillow - trying to come to terms with the complete and utter disaster that is the Age of Sigmar book.
I really tried to stay positive to the last and push away my initial sceptisism ( after all I forked out 55 euros for the damn thing ) but after having read the book I truly belive GW completely dropped the ball with this one.
There's admittedly a few interesting ideas in there, along with beautiful photos and a few really nice illustrations. However those are quickly overshadowed by the poorly edited and ponderous, inept writing. Also the confusing lack of an actual games system and general lacklustreness of the tome makes it the least appealing GW product I've ever had the misfortune to come across.
Warhammer needed to change, but this was certainly not the way to do it as far as I'm concerned. It really feels like the "Phantom Menace" moment of the tabletop world.
