Win a Free Tervigon , Tyrant, or Thunderwolf kit- Oh my!

263 comments
Well to celebrate the new releases, in a way that everyone can participate in (for FREE of course)- we're doing another giveaway!

Check it out, this one is really easy too!

All you have to do to enter to win a shiny new Tervigon, Hive Tyrant, or Thunderwolves kit is: Be a follower of Spikey Bits, and post at least one comment on here between now and March 31.

I'll choose THREE winners, that's right three winners one for each of the three new kits, from the comments left on the blog by followers.  So the more comments you post the better (not that we need more commenters per ce, it's just easier to choose from a list in the Disqus menu, and the last "voting" contests ended with shenanigans).

I'll pick the winners around the end of March/ start of April. So the more posts you make the better, but please don't spam, and remember the blog rules; no cursing or attacking others.

Oh and here's the LINK to "follow" the blog.

So that's it, short and sweet, good luck to everyone! -MBG

(I know, I know... there are Fenrisian Wolves too, but why win a $25 kit when you can win a $50 one, right?)

blackmoor said...

You mean just any comment like this one?

spikeybits said...

Indeed :)

Pgwallin said...

Well this sounds like a very effective way to spawn comments, much like a tervigon spawns gaunts. Does my comment get Feel No Pain?

spikeybits said...

Lol, if you do not get Psychic Hooded, yes :P

Peter Yaskowski said...

Sweet.  I could certainly use any of these.  Granted, I'd have to reconfigure my Hive Fleet to make use of them...

MonkeyLeader said...

I'm looking forward to the Thunderwolves kit, the round shields look very "viking" like.

i want wolf said...

i want wolf

jkin6198 said...

id like to throw my name in the hat!

jkin6198 said...

btw all those who remember the pre-heresy thousand sons, they're painted! Look forward to those in the next couple days!

Kveldulf_Spider said...

Those new 'Nid models almost make me sad to have traded my swarm away.  However those wolf riders would make a fine addition to my gf's Space Wolves...

captgrizz said...

Sweet. Would be great to be getting 2 of these kits. Then I could have 5 tervigons and 3 tyrranofexes on the table

captgrizz said...

I am confused though, more comments means more chances?

decaymma said...

Terrvigon FTW

xzandrate said...

Why not 2 fenrisian wolves boxes?

Still, TWolves would be fine.

Johnson Luu said...

I hope I win the wolves :)

spikeybits said...

Yep, I just pick from a list of comments for the month on the Disqus dashboard.
So as long as I can figure out what follower you are from your comment profile.

But like I said you know, be respectful and all, and lets keep the spamming to a minimum please.

Josephrscholl said...

I'm in!!!

Eldaraddict said...

Either of them would be great.  Thanks for the free stuff Mr. Spikey

Eldaraddict said...

If I win one, It will be a sign to finish either my Tyranids or Wolves.  Let the Fates decide!

design said...

Thunder, Thunder, Thunderwolves hooooo!

Matthew Lyle said...

moar puppys?

design said...

But then again, how about that monster Tyranid!

design said...

Three prizes, three entries. How about the Terrvigon!

megad00mer said...

More Tyranids is more gooder. Tyranids that can make more Tyranids is even more gooderererr..er..

Gabe Vanderkin said...

Tervigon or Tyrannofex please!
though TWC sounds really cool too.

Steve Blaske said...

Free stuff, FTW!

Kraggi said...

Free stuff always good, and it helps that I like the blog too :-)

Joseph Ratledge said...

If chose, I'll be up for a trade.  Which means a vote for me could mean a sweet deal for you.  Oh, wait, no voting.

Ellis Warner said...

What if one wanted two boxes of Fenrisian Wolves instead of one thunderwolf?

Aaron Kempf said...

I would love the tyranofex or the tyrant, but I could find uses for the thunderwolves too!

magiler said...

Nice contest. For Tervigon / Tyrano model, I'm personally thinking about lowering his back and changing forward legs for something more resonable - such massive creature cannot be supported by sharp, spikey (pun not intended) leg tips!

spikeybits said...

Sure that's cool. I'm easy....

Kam Aronhalt said...

Cool contest, I will tell my friends.

Johnson Luu said...

Free new shiny stuff, FTW

Rob Angell said...

It'd be rude not to comment on such a generous giveaway, good luck folks!

Courtney Hollyoake said...

Sweet contest. Now if only I collected tyranids or space wolves

Jteague said...

Im in!

matthoell said...

Spikey Bitz Rocks!!

Mihail Tsankov said...

I've had a self made Tervigon conversion since the codex was rumored and I think mine is really great, but this one is simply awesome. GW have outdone themselves this time.

theambit said...

Ooo free wolves...

Jason Mace said...

What has two thumbs and loves free stuff?  THIS GUY!

David Roy said...

D Roy reporting in for a chance at gifts for the GF!


Granted, I will regret not having a good way to deal with those bastards alongside her current venomthrope/hormagaunt combo, but still....

carl hurtig said...

Heavy D6 said...

Sweet a contest lets do this!

Ian Herrmann said...

Well, I was an Unofficial Follower until now, this is as good a reason as any.

Besides, this is way less dangerous than the murder I was willing to commit for a set of Thunderwolves.

spikeybits said...

O.o

:D

Frenchhammer said...

Very cool contest, keep on the good work

Ian Herrmann said...

I suppose I should mention that I'm Following as KitAdrian, though I post Comments under my given name.

Jonathan Willingham said...

Winner winner chicken dinner!

ONIAgent150 said...

Am I a follower? How do I do that? Can I just comment? Is that enough? 

Jon Clegg said...

For Russ! For the Wolftime!

William Sparrow said...

A comment? Like this?

spikeybits said...

Lol, Jonathan!

Jake said...

I like free, there, commented.

Jacob Seaman said...

I really do love the new Tyranid kits. Not only do they look cool, but think of the conversion potential for each of them! There will be a ton of extra bits left over to really customize your swarm. I hope I get one of these!

oink said...

I feel discriminated against on account of the fact that for some reason I am unableto comment on blogs using my work computer... I have to wait 'till the evenings to be able to say anything of worth! (what do you mean I should be working at work??)

Demitra said...

Who has two thumbs and likes the chance to win free stuff?  This guy.

Sean M. Celba said...

Very nice of you to do this.

terry said...

Can't say no to a free Tervigon!!!! Bring on the swarm!

Sean M. Celba said...

btw my follower profile is SonofRuss.  Sorry I know this will be confusing.

KC Winz said...

 There is nothing that would make me want to play a Tyranid or Space Wolves army. (Other than free models, of course!)

Dain Q. Gore said...

Well that was easy!

KC Winz said...

I wonder if I could take the contest prize in bits ... so I can complete my long awaited Hive Tyrant/Thunderwolves kitbash ... 

Mike Monigan said...

Papa needs another Tervigon to accompany my poor, converted Tervy!

captgrizz said...

honestly, most of kirbys or puppy posts that arouse hate usually get 84- 120 posts. this one is only at 61 right now. let's go folks!

CrimsonTurkey said...

Seeing as I have a $7 yearly budget for wargaming, that would certainly help my 'nids out quite a bit.

Mike Monigan said...

May the Spikey Lords bestow upon me a beast with which to nom my foes.

spikeybits said...

Not now :P

Vargna said...

Oh god yes. I need to wipe me some Grey Knights off the tabletop!

hephesto said...

Don't mind if I do, superb contest by the way!

Sonorous_Epithet said...

 Man, I would paint the fluff out of any one of those kits and share the results with the blog :)

Kirby said...

It's my Birthday end of March you know MBG ;)

Matthew Challen said...

I am so into this!! they are awesome kits

tyler said...

Wow, it has been a really long time since the last giveaway, any chance this will once more become a monthly thing?

Colonel Shofer said...

I Spikeybits !!!

Brendan Hickey said...

Must say I think all three kits are really nice, if terribly overdue. Even though I'm a Tyranid player the Thunderwolves are tempting me to return to my ancient Space Wolf roots!

John Laubersheimer said...

Me too!

Warbringer89 said...

Choose me to win Spikeybits!!! its always been my goal to make a thunderwolf cav. army, and this will really help to get it going faster!!!

captgrizz said...

Sad. still only 77 comments. Lets get this up there people !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aasfresser said...

Need more 'Nids! Nice Blog btw, I visit it once a day. When will you work again on your Scarab Occult Army? I love the Defiler-conversion.

Michael Bird said...

The new Nid kits are totally sick.So glad i didn't bother with making a Tervigon conversion.And the Swarmlord will be totally killer on the table top,unless the 6th edition nerfs him.

Jeremy Grove said...

Challenge accepted

The Deadman said...

Well after a 2yr wate GW Gave us Space Wolf players some really awsome plastic Thunderwolves and Fenrisian wolves as well.

Chimericist said...

So it has come to this.

Master Shake said...

I convert stuff.....

IDICBeer said...

Fantastic, I could do with anyone of those kits :-)

IDICBeer said...

 It's my birthday too (25th) =)

silar said...

Love free prizes! All those kits seem great, could be the starting point of a new army.

40kNidMan said...

Huge!! I love em.

David Wilkinson said...

Free? Well count me in ;)

Richard Jordan said...

I think a lot of people will just post crap to take advantage of this.

-Hedwerx

Dennis Herrmann said...

Not sure if "follow" did work but the chance of actually winning something i can use is pretty awesome. 

Jarl Frossindoom said...

Just started to follow this blog. Perhaps it was fate. Show me some prizes!

ONIAgent150 said...

Alright! Day one of the occupation of this blog post begins! I'll post here every day until the end! 

spikeybits said...

Oni, are you the 99%? lol :P

Mihail Tsankov said...

It's funny how a simple word in the title can make people crazy. There's already 94 posts. That's crazy. Good luck guys. :)

ONIAgent150 said...

I think I am one of the 98.76%. So... yes? I also really want to win one of these things after missing the Christmas contest (which never got judged, cough cough). 

James Van Houten said...

well ok then...

maybe it's time for my genestealer cult to call in the hive fleet.

Peewee6765 said...

frrrrreeeeeee? count me in for the nid models!

Jacob Seaman said...

 Oh and I just realized that my follower name is Wolfs16. That doesn't seem to be an issue as long as we state who we are, right? I've seen other folks do the same.

AshHammer said...

Me three!

Sean M. Celba said...

Me infinity!

ONIAgent150 said...

Second day of Occupy Spikey Bits. I am currently contemplating the meaning of "Contemptor." Seems awfully mean. 

Jani Hyvärinen said...

If I can't get the twolves I'll give away the tyranid fig to my friend who's in desperate need for some.

StudentTeacher said...

Will post for Thunderwolves!

Branden Jacobson said...

Follow and post just to win those sweet new models? I'm down!

Granesh
Smells Like Wargaming

Ghostin said...

What would happen if a Tervigon sneezed?

Beast said...

I'll post for any of them...

ONIAgent150 said...

Day three of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. I just ordered a different head for my limited edition beaky marine. The head was miscast on mine, so I'll just be making him without a helmet. 

Peewee6765 said...

gaunts. lots of gaunts 

Brian Mooney said...

Any of these models would be a great start back into the hobby.

BrassScorpion said...

Very cool!

MarshalWilhelm said...

"Oh and here's the LINK to "follow" the blog."

The link doesn't work for me.... :(

ONIAgent150 said...

Day four of the Siege of Spikey bitz. I'm going to need new paints soon. 

Nick Shishkin said...

Thanks for the opportunity, SpikeyBits!

ONIAgent150 said...

Day five of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. The wind howls outside my window as another Flesh Tearer gets painted. 

Peewee6765 said...

generous!

ONIAgent150 said...

Day six of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. I have contemplated starting a Chaos Marines army, even with the current state of the codex. 

spikeybits said...

If you do all 30 days I kinda want to see if i can do a diary blog post about it. :D

Spikey Bits: The stalking....

ONIAgent150 said...

It's my homepage and it only takes a minute to leave a comment. Why not? Onward to victory! 

Peewee6765 said...

well your trying hard

MarshalWilhelm said...

Hahaa! It has me joined to this site as William Hooke, yet my comments area as Marshal Wilhelm. 

Strange but true.

Oh computers. XD

Anyway, thank you for running this prize - it is very generous :)

May your bits always be spikey! 
hurrah!

spikeybits said...

My bad. Havent had a chance to fix it, but if you scroll to the bottom, the followers box is after the article ends. :D

MarshalWilhelm said...

I eventually got some courage to look around and I did click on 'follow' - so I got their eventually :D

But for some reason it didn't use the name I post under.... lol.

STeve N said...

Took a bit to figure out that the comments below hold very useful information ( Click the "Follow" button in the designated punch and pie room )

I love the models but if there happens to be a fourth give away, particularly at a set of the Fenrisian Wolves, I'd like a chance at 'em!

MarshalWilhelm said...

you are ;)

ONIAgent150 said...

Day seven of the Siege of Spikey bits. Is this what the Iron Cage campaign felt like? Doubtful. Also: the command squad I bought back in VA (at FTW Games, no less) is close to done. 

Peewee6765 said...

more like the siege of terra

ONIAgent150 said...

Day eight of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. Hershey bars are delicious. Or are those "heresy" bars?

STeve N said...

Mars chocolates were shifting towards smaller packaging to accommodate less than 250 calories per serving to combat obesity and diabetes in the regions they sell chocolate. Are you prepared? :P

ONIAgent150 said...

Day nine of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. Finally got new spray paint, so my work on my second tactical squad begins in earnest. 

Jacob Seaman said...

I really like the that the Tyranofex looks like a baby Hierophant. It would make sense that it would follow a similar aesthetic. I wonder if they will make the Parasite model look like a tiny Harridan?

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I think people will be tempted to start a Space Wolves army, simply because the Wolfs models look like so much fun! I know I am!

Jacob Seaman said...

 I have thought about that too. Perhaps digging the "spikes" into the ground a bit more would help? Curious to see what folks do to compensate for the size.

Jacob Seaman said...

 When something is free, we all collect that army. :-)

Jacob Seaman said...

 I have seen a lot of cool Tervigon conversions, but I agree that the official model was just too cool. I think folks can use their converted Tervigons as the HQ versions. It would still make them useful! Although I hope yours isn't much smaller by comparison....

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 You know your Space Wolves need more wolfy...ness...

Jacob Seaman said...

 You my friend are a very fortunate man. A girlfriend who embraces the Great Devourer? A real thing of beauty! :-)

Jacob Seaman said...

 It looks like a few of us have different follower names compared to what we post as. I am including my follower name at the end of my posts. That should make it easier!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 No, like this. :-P

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 As a fellow Jake, I suggest we join forces in order to win a free model. You can keep the box, I will keep that model. That seems fair, right? :-D

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Yeah....I have a feeling a lot of us should probably be doing more productive things than surfing 40K websites. God bless internet on smart phones!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Wait...you have two thumbs as well!? There is a gentleman who commented to the same effect earlier. This can only be settled one way:

Thumb War!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I agree! It's a great way to get the community more involved with the site and will simply spread awareness. Plus there is constantly good and regular updates!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 WHAT

Please post pictures somewhere so we can see this delightful abomination! Are they count-as Nids or Wolves?

Jacob Seaman said...

 The great thing is, I think you can build a pretty solid list from either of these kits. What I mean is, they eat up a lot of points, so you don't have to worry about starting out an army with a daunting troop count to paint. Although....the freshly pooped out Termagants may get a little overwhelming to paint. Batch painting techniques ahoy!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 How much of a difference is there between the two size-wise? It seems like a lot of folks made them a bit too tiny.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I think folks might be a bit shocked at how easy it is to enter this contest. It creates a weird apprehension!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Oh my goodness, it would take you a few years just to buy a kit of Termagants! I guess that means that you have everything painted to a very high standard by the time you get another model? :-)

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 When in doubt, throw Wolves at it.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Yes! That should be a requirement. Or at least, it should entitle you to more free models. Ya know...to showcase the new products? ;-)

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Forget monthly, how about daily! Seriously though, a monthly giveaway would be awesome.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I do feel bad for the folks who spent a lot of money on making a major Tervigon conversion. Although, I guess that any conversion you work hard on should make you proud, so maybe it's still a win?

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I think GW was testing us, waiting till we were ready to receive this bounty. We were all so young then...now we are wise and world-weary.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Me too! What a coincidence!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

I had a dream that it would end this way...

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I'm in the same boat as you (no opponents), but it can be tremendously satisfying to see an army you made come to fruition. Thank goodness for the internet!

Jacob Seaman said...

 Heaven forbid! I only excrete the most quality of posts.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 And the Hive Mind sends a single Tervigon for support.

"Well...go get 'em!" says the Hive Mind, as it fires out the lone Tervigon onto the planet.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Isn't there a quote that says, "My armor is contempt?"

Sounds familiar....

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 No, it would be Rippers!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Dude! Call GW and get a replacement! That is way too expensive of a model for one of the main details to be messed up.

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day ten of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. Pickle jars make great painting cups, I am discovering. Too heavy to accidentally tip and too eye-catching to miss. 

captaingrizz said...

after getting the tervigon assembled, I'm happy to say not only is it an awesome kit, it's not much bigger than the few I had. SOOOOO many cool new bits though, I love the gigantic crushing claws, Id love to make an OOE with them.

Jacob Seaman said...

 I think that's what I'm so excited about. The conversion potential in these is what excites me the most!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 But aren't they a little too tall for easy brush washing? I always use an old cream cheese container. They seem to be the right size.

Jacob Seaman said...

 He has said that substitutions can be made, so perhaps you guys can work something out?

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 I think anyone starting the hobby now (or getting back into it) are really spoiled for choice with all these awesome new models. Hopefully they keep coming!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

Question for those who have the new Thunderwolf kits (including the Wolf Lord):

Are the Thousand Son bits that come on the models pretty intact, or are they really beat up? I'm wondering if those might be usable.

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day eleven of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. My command squad is almost done. All that remains now is the Priest and the the last of the banner. 

Jacob Seaman said...

 I wonder if we will start to see some 3rd party kits to make your own Cyber-Wolves? It seems like it would be an awesome idea!

-Wolfs16

STeve N said...

Day ## of Siege of Spikey Bits' Outer Gate, Found scrap of paper.. Unable to transcribe.. "Door is not an entrance". Sending word to identify what it means.

spikeybits said...

 With some work, yep. Check the video I did, There is a good shot there.

Jacob Seaman said...

Very interested in seeing how well the Tervigon kit works with other Tyranid beasts. It would make for some amazing Trygon conversions, I'm sure!

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 Oooh, very cool. Thanks for the video!

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day twelve of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. STeve N will not steal my thunder! 

Jacob Seaman said...

So how are those who made tiny Tervigons dealing with the base size issue? Simply popping the old model off and making a new base? Or did most people guess that the oval base would be the way to go?

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day thirteen of the Siege of Spikey bitz. Hell week has begun here at my college. Papers papers papers...

Jacob Seaman said...

 I just tried using some of that Instant Mold today. The shoulder pad turned out awful, but the impression of a Techmarine chest doohicky is looking really good! Anyone else have any experience with this stuff?

Might help people who want to make some copies of details on the Wolf kits.

-Wolfs16

arkhantheslayer said...

Awesome models, can't wait to sleep with them!

arkhantheslayer said...

Those Thunderwolfs are really great models. Can't wait to see more from GW. 

STeve N said...

Do you sleep with the case or do you specifically cling to the models as you sleep, possible reliving a neverending game? Inquiring minds may want to know, and roll morale saves (if not fearless)

STeve N said...

Day ## of underground bunker outside ONIAgen150's siege of Spikey Bitz. I spy from the puzzling report from my kommandos, that ONIAgent150 is up to something, and its not conversions or painting.

Order for the Kommandos: Return and Spy some more. And see whether the camo, flakk gun, and flood lights were rented seperately or sold in a bundle.

Jacob Seaman said...

 I imagine he must be a very still sleeper, as any rolling over and you'll wake up to a crunched Wolf.

-Wolfs16

Jacob Seaman said...

 If only the cost of these Tyranid kits was cheaper, I would love to have and army with 5 Tervigons and 3 Tyranofex's. That would be awesome!

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day fourteen of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. Got in another fight in Ethics class today. Poor people are genetically inferior to rich people? Sorry, no sale. Jerks. 

arkhantheslayer said...

They don't do well with saliva, or wifes. But great excuse to howl at night!

Jacob Seaman said...

I'm making room for new models by painting up ones that have been sitting on my desk for too long. Got a whole Vespid squad done! Yay!

-Wolfs16

STeve N said...

I spent three quarters of the day organizing aaaaaaaall of my magic cards, I barely had any time to check the web articles. (I think my fav is the Mind Bomb of 5th's gotcha rules..) Good to see all parties are keepin busy as I can briefly read the comments section.

ONIAgent150 said...

Day fifteen of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. Got bored of painting more Flesh Tearers, so I painted a Silver Skull squad leader, like he has been seconded to the Flesh Tearers to instruct them how to be better Codex Marines.

arkhantheslayer said...

and I shall call him, "WOLFY"!

Kraggi said...

Woot Woot! Hoping for some good luck here as just starting out my Tyranid force due to these new models! 

STeve N said...

Today I'm starting my ork stompa kit, to which I realize I never got instructions from the box.

Jacob Seaman said...

Finished my Trygon! Now I have to figure out what I want to do for my Space Marine Chapters' symbol.... I can never decide on these things!Jacob Seaman
They are an Arabic/Turkish inspired army, but I want to stay away from the crescent moons and all that. Main reason, I stink at freehand!

Anyway, dreaming of Tervigons!

-Wolfs16

ONIAgent150 said...

Day sixteen of the Siege of Spikey Bitz. SPray painted some models and recoated my Sag. Priest. 

captgrizz said...

quick question. Does it matter how many names I post under on this website?

STeve N said...

Already on day one of assembled, and the stompa played its first Apoc game! (Friend let me borrow a baneblade to use as a Tankhamma, which he promptly wrecked, offering that the new toys should have at least turn a play) Overall, I'm happy about its performance, and even considering purchasing a second (or third for the formation!)

Jacob Seaman said...

 Tyranids are going to be on my painting desk for awhile. I need to finish a brood of Genestealers and my converted Parasite model. Here's hoping I'll have a Tervigon to paint soon!

-Wolfs16
