    3. Did you not know what the jetbike riders shout as they ride to war?

      "Diggady diggady. Diggady do. Allll-right."

    4. @Anonymous:
      I have it on good authority that they did all they could to make a vulva-shaped jetbike, and only resorted to the design above as a last resort. Turns out that the former is not very aerodynamic.

  3. Are those heavy weapons O.O on the jet bikes?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Those are indeed heavy weapons, they seem to be somewhere in between an attack bike and landspeeder. Could be fun rules with mobile plasma cannons etc. buzzing around.

    More importantly, did anyone notice that the nose weapon in the original HH trailer doesn't match any of the weapons in these pics (heavy bolter/multi-melta/plasma cannon)?? I wonder if it was a placeholder, or if there are more weapon options than they want us to know about, like the original Contemptor PDFs.

  5. I dunno. Color me unimpressed. Molded shoulder pads, some brass stuff, a very expensive book, and some... oddly shaped jet bikes.

    I'm sure this will be the dream of anyone that wanted to do a preheresy or heresy-era army, but I'll be waiting to see if they release anything that really captures the essence of Chaos.

    1. I was keen to do pre-heresy, crusade-era space marines. With Primarch.

      But at those prices I'm leaning towards a big "no thanks".

      Unless anyone wants to give me a few thousand pounds.

      Anyone?

    2. I hardly had an interest in this HH hype until I saw those oddly shaped jet bikes. They scream, unintentionally I believe, an Art Deco/Dieselpunk aesthetic. Very cool to see a GW product that I could actually display to my retro-eccentric/non-gaming group. They're really something else.

      And if Eldar or SoB could get an Art Nouveau series of molds- just forget about my loyalty to the chaos codex.

      Cheers,
      Duke

  6. I've been waiting years for a release like this, but now its here I cant help but be a bit disappointed. No Luna wolves pads is a shame, the jetbikes. are somewhat lackluster and the book very pricey. I expected around 50, 70 could buy you a battleforce. Will judge properly when I see the next wave of releases but in the meantime won't be investing. Means more £££ for chaos then!

  7. Very.... Chronicles of Riddick bad guyish?

  8. Dang. Almost thot that was thr CSm dex wen i first looked.

    ReplyDelete
  9. 70 pound for betrayal....Yep, they just lost a sale. if it had been at the £50 mark I just about cope. £70 is too much though.

    I will justify the one with Dark angels when it comes out but that'll be my limit.

    Those Jet Bikes do look brilliant though....is it wrong to be thinking Sammael conversion....?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Same here. 70 pounds is too high for that kind of few domestic games per quarter. Avarice will ruin FW.

    P.S. I was going to pay about 40-45 £ for betrayal. 70 £ - no, thanks. I'd better order full 2k of new CSM models.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I get that the book is pretty and all but does anyone really trust FW to write 70 pounds worth of fluff, let alone rules?

    Again, considering we were getting the models anyway, is anyone else confused as to why there's a "Horus Heresy" book being released?

    The models are nice, but the prices... They have to stop smoking their own resin.
    And I really would have appreciated some Luna Wolves love.

    ReplyDelete
  13. 70 quid, steep. It is FW though, they always have been expensive. Still cheaper than GW's limited edition rulebooks, and sooooooooo much cooler.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Holy crap, over $100 for the book? And for only 3 jetbikes? The sculpts are nice, but not particularly great. That's a little to rich for me. I mean... wow.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i think there will be a cheaper edition out, as this does seem to be the limited edition

    ReplyDelete
  16. oh and also dont forget to add on postage to that price

    ReplyDelete
  17. Look out its a toothless Dragon...he must be very very old.

  18. I am so mad I sold my three Sammeal jetbikes because I was tired of the counts-as speeder confusion Aaarrrggghhhhhh!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. In my opinion it's the binding type they have chosen that has driven up the price. A nice design but I think they have misinterpreted most players priorities. It's the quality of the contents I'm after and hopefully to still have money left to buy some models too...

    £70 is a lot, but so is £70 for a jet bike squadron.

    I'm waiting for the next book, and crossing my fingers hoping they do the dropsite massacre, I want Iron Hands, roll out the new terminator armour models!

    1. I agree, it has Tamurkhan syndrome. I have no need for Chinese imitation leather, and it adds hugely to the cost. Oh well, every FW book is two less FW models.

  20. I will buy the book at that price without hesitation and every release whether I am doing that legion or not. Everything about that book and those models is gorgeous!

    I've been waiting over 20 years for this...I'm not poo-pooing over the price now. If I have to sell models that I have now (I have every army but hardly need all of them) or do commission work to scrounge up the cash I will move Terra & Mars to do so!

    Oh, yes...they WILL be mine!

  21. At 70£ for the books, think I'll wait till blood angels and word bearers appear in them before i commit to spending that amount on a book or books!!!

  22. Why do those world eaters not have packs?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Time to knock up some jetbike conversions. I sure ain't parting with 70 quid for 3 of them.

    Get a grip Forgeworld.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would assume they get their power from the diesel train engine and don't need packs.

    1. Good point on the engine.

      I think they are compensating for something.

  25. Really? Is nobody but the first poster concerned that your space marines will be riding giant flying dildoes into battle?

  26. Did anyone genuinely believe the leather bound first book of their heresy series was going to be roughly the same price as their other books? really?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Just got an order of dreadnought arms through, but not the FW catalogue i asked for..BUT i did get a Sons of Horus pin badge!?!
    Anyone else had this?..maybe one of the other legions?
