The Dark Angels scheme is sexy.

The hull and weapons are also available separately.

Oooooh, damn sexy. That's the good stuff, a lot better than current GW designs.

 

But without 40k rules, it can be used as what exactly? Vindicator/predator count-as?!?

Disappointed by the price and lack of classic vanquisher cannon... But I'll still be getting it :D also, iron and hazard stripes will make it look just right ;)

Best looking Sicarian variant I’ve seen, hope it ports over to 40k.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's a really great way to sell that tank actually. Hull and single hull mounted weapon available separately for £62, or £86 for the whole shebang. Wish they'd do that for Moirax!

Apparently the US Army will name their new Styker missile tank the Manticore (Because of 40k) if enough people vote for it. You know what to do:

It can be used as a Sabre tank in games of Horus Heresy :P

Incredible release.

It's amazing. But is it Iron Within or Calibanite Dark Angel? That bloody scheme is too good.

I don't even know what I'm looking at, but I know I like it. My first instinct was that they took another crack at the Macrocarid Explorator before I realized that there were no hatches. That is a nice collection of options, something that is getting rarer with new GW plastic kits.

I find a lot of the Heresy tanks a bit uninspiring but this is a really cool design.

I'm not a HH person (apart from AT) but that's amazing. Makes me want a HH Epic reboot with mini versions of these so bad!

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.

Wow. Was not expecting this! Might have to get two to go with my Sicaran. They’d look really good on the table together in my opinion!

It is a sexy tank, but one thing bothers me. Why is there a ladder that the missiles on the side might hit when launched?  It bugs me as much as when I see Land raiders with the gun behind the door.

Great looking kit, and bonus points as the pack with all the options shows this is meant to take magnet's to swap between them as needed.
With expensive FW kits the extra weapon options are an easy upsell as well for FW.
