To be fair, most peoples regular Chaos Marine armies look the same as well. The new kits make it harder for the people who want to convert/kitbash/customize their armies, but many many people just build their armies as in the manual and call it a day. ^^


Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Its a big toss up with gw. I think they got hammered by people saying it takes to long to build the army before playing. So the best way for them to get/keep people playing is to make it easy for them to build the initial army. Then as they get suckered in they will epand that army by buying other sets.

Yes its a pain for people to convert these starter models, but it can be done with a bit of patience

If the Chaos kit is like the Plague Marines one and far too limited in customization/ posing it's not going to be fun.

 

That's my only worry.

Oh I agree that it makes it easier for people to build armies quickly, and great for younglings, but IMHO it seems like we are taking a step backwards after having years of kits with more poseability.

Theres no correct way to 'hobby' I do admit, and the new kits are more detailed, I just prefer being able to pose my minis the way I like without cutting them up and doing major conversion work.

Anyhoo this is drifting off topic, I have said my bit and feel better now its off my chest. As for the rumors I hope the Russ doesnt turn up all Wulfenesque, dont like the Team Jacob vibe the Wolves have atm.

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.
