    1. Hmm, the Combi Melta fuel tank is on the over side compared with the one of the Commanders sprue which is good, they are a pain when used 2 handed at the moment

    2. (tipple post, apologies)

      The Heavy Bolter is a strange choice. It looks like the scout one, not the really cool one from the Devastator sprue.

      Presumably it's on their because of the linkages with Deathwatch Killteams using Heavy Bolters.

      Unless...the new marine codex has rules for special Sternguard heavy bolters, stabilised ones maybe

      Delete
    3. Unless also it has to do with the special issue ammunition for bolters....
      Or lysander's bolter drill ability.if you compine these with a beavy bolter....;)

  2. I have my white dwarf.. I thought most already did. I have never played with or against chaos marines, but those models look awesome! Can't say the same about Dark Angels though.. I Hate SM bikes.:)

  3. Combi-weapons will come in handy for sergeants and characters too.

    About time the heavy flamer became available for Sternguard.

    Prefer the heavy bolter with backpack ammo though.

    Excellent!

  4. Dark Vengeance custom figure case? 66$?? Fuck off...

    1. It's the same size case as all of their $66 cases. It's just got a custom foam tray. You can always put regular trays in, moron.

      Delete
    2. TIL $66 is a rediculous price for a sold case and three sheets of battlefoam.

      Delete
    3. Is battlefoam cheaper???

      Delete
    4. No need to insult anybody. It is pointless to buy such a product, since you have the one with the regular trays next to it. And since you can't buy the GW trays separately, can you explain to me why would anyone buy such a thing? Some will say: "you can buy trays of other brands"; well yes, and you might as well buy their cases too while you're at it, don't you think?

      Delete
    5. Probably because I am picking up two starter sets, and having cases for my models is fantastic. I am considering these.

      Delete
    6. I also have several GW cases from as far back as 3rd edition, so they would match up with what I already have. Red foam trays from days long past.

      Delete
    7. I guess I don't understand the need to have a case for miniatures from 2 different ranges in a starter box. How many times will you go to someone's house to play Dark Vengeance games? These Dark Angel models are going in my regular case with my regular army.

      Now if they had made Space Hulk custom foam I might have ordered that. I think other companies made it though.

      I guess if people want to buy this then knock yourself out but I fail to see why anyone would need to transport just these models in a case. /shrug

      Delete
    8. I respect your position Natfka, but I really don't see the point. The case is incredibly bulky, and meant to transport miniatures that might suffer when taken from one place to another. Paying 132$ for 2 DA foam trays and 2 CSM foam trays where only the models in the starter set fit doesn't seem logical to me. I can understand people that have 1000 tactical marines in their collections, but a foam tray is not something that you would collect, specially when each of them is costing you that amount of money.

      In addition to that, the minis are plastic made, coming out from a starting set. As good as they might be, they are usually tougher and more resilient than others, and will hold on toghether even if you transport them in a shoe box.

      I'm sorry, I try, but I don't find it practical. You could make the foam tray yourself and save almost all of the money spent on the cases... I really don't think they'll sell many of these, honestly.

  5. Getting a couple of these weapon packs.

  6. Silly GW, nobody gives heavy bolters to Sternguard.

    1. Could always use it in your tac squad.

      Delete
    2. Does anyone use them in tac squads? I feel like if the made it rapid fire and bumped up the point cost it might be worth considering, but the missile launcher in that slot for tacs is too useful to pass up to get a couple s5 shots if you sit still.

      Delete
    3. I use two in my 10 man sternguard squad! I figured at long range 3 S5 shots are better than 1 wound on 2+ shot, plus it means they can hurt rhinos etc :)

      Delete
    4. Heavy Bolter is 36" Range. Why take 6 S5 shots when you can take out the heavy bolters and use the Kraken bolts?

      6 S5 shots vs. 10 S4 shots, plus moving closer to your enemy to get in range with Hellfire bolts? Yes please.

      Delete
    5. I use them in tac squads and in devastator squads from time to time.

  7. These weapon packs are huge. I'm so glad I found out about these, was just about to do a hack job converting up a sternguard squad. Sign me up for 5!

  8. I like this weapon pack now we just need a resin plasma gun pack and resin meltagun pack and we'll be set.

    2. Wtb autocannon pack.

    3. What er really Need is a sprue that has every possible weapon in the Army on it, in plastic
      For every Army!!!

  9. My 'problem' with these is that it gives me weapons that I would not normally use. IE heavy bolter, or combi-flamer. So I don't like paying money for these I will probably never use.

    1. you almost always get extra bits with things you buy. Like basic troop boxes. I love having the extra bits, and down the road (probably soon), pick up one or two of these for some customization work on models.

      Delete
    2. I should have clarified or better explained myself. I have no problem with the extra 'fluff' bits. I would just like the option to order / buy what I want. But I know why GW does not do bits ordering anymore.

      Delete
    3. They do it so people are forced to buy the SM commander box just for the combi-melta gun. Instead of them just buying the bit solo. It is a greater profit for them.

  11. oh my is that GW making laser cut foam? I guess battlefoam will have to suit them now too lol

    1. GW has been selling foam for Ever -.-

    2. And battle foam was already laughed out of court when they trie to sue other companies already.

      Delete
  12. I've heard talk that a forthcoming marine codex will have suspensors (sp?) as an option for Sternguard and Scout heavy bolters (though not for devestators or tacticals) - making them 18" Assault 3. Food for thought.

    1. that would be something pretty dang cool. That would be an excellent weapon to consider for lists!!!

    1. Wish ist had all MM :(

    2. Short range weaponry requiring it to come into melta/gauss ranges while exposing its splinter armor (anti small arms) flanks. Not so spiffy.

      Delete
  14. With a dedicated figure case, I wonder why GW wants us to keep the figures from the box set together. Maybe they have put more effort into the Dark Vengeance mission book than expected. If there is more balance between the forces and some replayability in the mission book, it could make sense to keep the set together.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Having just converted a whole squad of Sternguard from plastics (INC H.Flamer), this kinda feels redundant to me, but I'm drawn in by that extra H.Flamer. I can take two in my squad, and only have one converted up....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sod the weapons, I'm just pleased to see a Beakie Marine in there!

    1. You only get the weapons, the marines are just plastics sold separately.

  17. Natfka, any idea if the original WD leaks where they show the big items, like the Daemons last month, and Chaos and DA this month are actually put out by GW themselves? Cause I see no reason why someone would leak images out on a few items, and when its confirmed people received their WDs different items are shown that never came out from the leaks. Or your opinion?

    1. it does no one any good for me to speculate one way or the other.

      Some people.......()have a hard time distinguishing between rumor, fact, opinions, and speculation.

  18. I bet I'll get the WD again tuesday or wednesday. Next time I wont get a subscription for it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But it's nice to have the WD only rules and painting guides isn't it? We've been selling out 4 months in a row now

      Delete
  19. combi-weapons are WAY overdue

    ReplyDelete
  20. the case is £40 for the UK and £9 for the weapon set

    ReplyDelete
  21. (correction) the heavy bolter has a Bipod not a Tripod. Plus with no ammo feed it would run dry in seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's got an ammo drum under the barrel...

    ReplyDelete
  23. If GW came out with this when the Space Marine codex came out, they wouldn't have lost so much money to chapter house and other companies.

    ReplyDelete
  24. In tiny print it reads "Requires user cutting amd fitting"

    ReplyDelete
  25. No one else seems to be pointing out the fact that were finally getting a set of plastic lightning claws......no more butchering special characters or terminators for them.
