Bomb of an Auction coming up...

An online auction has been set up for anyone looking for a "bomb" of a Christmas present.

An Auckland-based munitions collector has put up for sale an original MK 84 500lb (227kg) bomb and a New Zealand New Seacat missile.

Starting bids for both items - which are on offer on TradeMe - begin at $1000, with the online auction set to close at 3.57pm on Sunday.

The 227kg bomb is filled with plaster and the owner states it ''turned up as a garden ornament (minus tail) many years ago''.

''Once I had it checked out as safe (and free from explosives!) by an Airforce ordinance specialist I refurbished the body and sourced an unused 1969 tail,'' the seller wrote.

''It's a totally awesome bomb and would be the showpiece of any collection, another item that would make for the ultimate man cave decoration.''

The seller said it was about 2.5m long and ''very heavy''.

The Seacat missiles is 1.5m tall.The seller wrote that the item was one of the few decommissioned missiles of its type to remain intact.

''Have a look at pictures of all of the major ordinance collections in NZ and you won't see one of these,'' the item's blurb stated.

''This is a truly rare opportunity to own a piece of missile history, a 'must-have' for any ordinance/naval collection and a unique addition to any man cave.''

The seller added: ''I have owned this for close to 20 years ... reluctant sale but looking to fund a new project.''

Daemons vs Dark Elves Photos

Daemons vs Dark Elves last night

Dark Elf Crossbowmen lining up behind a hedgerow, waiting for the Dark Portals to open

The Dark Riders charge forward as to shield the Witch Elves and Cauldron from the charge of the Daemonettes, and in the process, pay the highest sacrifice in the service of Khaine.
 The sight of their blood  fuels the bezerk frenzy of the Hag and her followers, who then fail to charge into contact with the Horrors that were the closest unit to them.

While the Nurgle Herald and his followers languish, like the DE Black Guar,d on the sideline, both units only arriving in the 2nd move of either side

Daemon Dogs of Khorne  intervene to protect their Bloodletter masters from yet another volley of 66 shots of Dark Elf hatred, now at boiling point, after their previous magic phase and shooting had been nullified by Amintok's net.

The Bloodletter herald, and the Nurgle Unit rapidly approach, while the Daemon Prince hungrily eyes the flank of the unit of Blackguard that have descended on the Fiend, who had just dispatched their Repeater Bolt-thrower

Kouran's presence spurs the Elite Blackguard to even greater atrocities, and the Fiend stands no chance...

The fearless Elves hack at the tsunami of daemons descending at them

Only to be whittled away one by one

Leaving only 2 models:  
The standard bearer (who is probably more afraid of Kouran than the horde of daemons), and "his nibs", Kouran of the Tower, both alas, no more...

Leaving the Bloodletters and Daemon Prince to make mincemeat of the crossbowmen. 
The High Sorceress survives, only to flee, caught in the pursuit, and her pointy skull added to the pile of offerings to the blood god.

Meanwhile the Witches and Dreadlord had slashed and poisoned their way through a unit of  Horrors of Tzeench, only  to be led into a trap by that over-friendly and boisterous puppy, the Beast of nurgle, who just had to be charged due to their bezerk frenzy.

 A well deserved victory to Sam's Daemons of Fluff, after a four-hour long battle!
