I doubt itll be that much. If you look at the Genestealer cult armoured claw set, thats $55 USD for a chimera, cadian shock troop set, and I believe a hybrid sprue. I doubt a box release of a rhino and tactical squad will come to much more than that.

Picked up a Belial and a Azrael with my Christmas gift money + now my folks are being stalked by four assasins. The Chaos forces we have been chasing seem to have grown in numbers as well.

I have mixed experience with fine cast. When they started, I got some nice models, no bubble, no strange mold lines. At some point, the casts got really bad, up to the point that I was sitting with the gw shop manager and selecting bits from two different boxes to get one set that was more or less okay. 

 

In the past they got better again, but you never know before you cleaned the model. Most bubbles can be easily filled with glue, green stuff or milliput.

 

As for Belial... Someone told me, he comes always with a bubble in his nose. tongue.png

You get 5 spare torsos with your assault dudes. Scavenge some legs somewhere and use the remaining heavies.


Or magnetise the torso. It's easier than the weapons. You should have enough helmets already.

 

Would you use a 1/8 " for the torso magnets?

1/8 seems big enough. thats what i use for shoulder magnets, i feel theyd be strong enough for the torso as well. 3/16 may also work, its almost 5mm, and thats what a few people use for knight weapons sooo... its def strong enough.

You can get away with the smallest magnet (2mm). Gravity does a great job keeping them together, the magnets just help them keep upright. Just don't start shaking them around by the head.

Would it be worth rebasing the guys from DV with the right size bases before I go to painting the rest of them ? I think the answer around town was it helps get more people into CQC.

Additionally, these two just arrived today. 

 

- Is it too much work to make Azael on such a base? (35mm)

- Why did they include 4 bases?

IMHO rebasing all your tacticals benefits them. They look less derpy on a base that actually fits their feet. Not to mention that all the current kits have the 32mm, so replacing them all the smaller ones is tiresome. I haven't rebased all my guys yet, so half of my devastators are on the small ones, the other half on 32mm. It looks ridiculous.

 

Rebase Azrael, cut a slot in the bigger bases for the metal tab, don't cut the tab off. That metal mofo will benefit from the larger footprint. Maybe he'll even stop falling on his face all the time.

 

Oh, and it occasionaly happens that you get more bases than you need.

Yes he does brother, sorry for taking so long to reply. As for hidden bubbles I have not started to clean him up yet to see past the superficial.
