The models in Octarius are awesome; however, the cost for just wanting the models was way too high for me to justify purchasing. I hope to purchase models separately and soon. I had to finally draw a line the sand as far as spending. I came came very close to purchasing and I’m glad I didn’t, but damn those orks are amazing!
This has been my thought too; even at £93 (at Dark Sphere) it feels like too much, yet I wonder about it in relation to Dark Uprising.
How many sprues of terrain in this versus that?
I think 4 (new) building sprues, 1 (new) oil well, 1 (old?) barrier sprue, 1 (old) scrap heap sprue, 1 (new) gauge & barricades sprue. So 8 terrain sprues. As well as 10 new Krieg + 12 new Ork/Grot/Squig minis (22 minis)
DU had 6 column sprues, 4 platform sprues, 4 wall sprues, 1 (old) pipes sprue, and 1 (old) barricade sprue. So 16 terrain/accesssory sprues. As well as 15 new CGC + 11 Enforcers (26 real, mostly new, minis)
A fascinating comparison - but does it suggest one box is either more expensive than it needs to be, or one was rather underpriced by this weird metric.
Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...
