Lovely models. But 65£ is too much for me.

With preorders up in New Zealand, a little surprise is revealed in the sprues. It seems that like Mallex, the Firebrand will be sold on his own eventually.

 

The cultists are on a separate sprue too. 

 

 

The Cultists are on their own sprue from the adventurers but since there isn't a variety of enemies that doesn't mean much since it doesn't look like its a sprue that could end up in an easy to build set.

Don't do that. Don't give me hope.

Urg, red plastic sprue for the hero’s. Personally I’ve had nothing but trouble with that, it’s been more brittle. That plus £65 makes this an easy pass.

I firmly believe that a Lost and the Damned is coming. Not sure which form they will take, but all these releases tell me more and more a new chaos faction is coming.

I think only if enough people turn up at tournaments with the ones from BSF as the data sheets from BSF (sorry forget the keyword that lets the hq be the chaos lord)

Well Barnes and Nobles version sold out in a day so I’m sure they know it’s popular without relying on someone mathhammering a combo using them.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Yeah, for all the talk of GW giving new models OP rules (a theory that overlooks the many new models with, let's say "less than OP" rules), it really seems like they're mostly going with "cool factor" as their selling strategy.

I gotta say I was surprised at the price level of this expansion, as I'd probably expected it to be about 2/3 of the actual price. I just hope there'll be a Lost & Damned faction eventually to make it easier to justify the cost to myself...

These new chaos models are perfect for my purposes. I’m not sure if I’d use them as a unit in their own right, but scattered amongst a few squads of cadians as u it leaders and specialists, they’d make for excellent renegades.

The new Adeptus Mechanicus model has some tasty rules. I want him in my army!

After thinking about it... I want the rogue trader and the techno-archeologist. That's probably £40 of models right there as a seperate release. So actually the price tag isn't so bad. I'll be able to sell some of the others to my gaming group. The red plastic is a downer though, that stuff is utter crap.
