The Dark Angels side of the Dark Vengeance box was highlighted both the librarian and Interrogator Chaplin as the best models (in my opinion), and for the most part I think most people considered the Chaplin to be a starter set limited release only. This rumor bit, has Games Workshop re-releasing the the Dark Vengeance Chaplin around May of 2013.


Please remember that this is a rumor.

I have heard both the DVish interrogator Chaplin and Radagast will be available after May and June of 2013 respectively.

  2. I hope they do more clam pack plastic characters. That chaos aspiring champion is awesome. I already painted and converted one but I'd like do to another right out of the box.

  3. Not sure i like the way they are going with these models. GW is starting to cut them up in a way that prevents easy conversions and kitbashing. I can see why for starter sets and such, but not for the regular line.

    1. You've got to think of the plastic clampacks as essentially one-pose metal models. In order to dynamically pose and proportion them it is better to sculpt one pose. Making them more versatile also limits the sculpter. Compare the space marine captain to some of his metal/resin cousins. Given that we used to convert solid metal working with plastic is a joy.

    2. I agree, I totaly see the DV style as far inferior to the regular line. Most people are blinded by the nice detail, but miss the repetive designs and simple two part moulding.

      Delete
    3. I have to disagree with you guys. The level of detail immediately removes the DV models from the 'far inferior' category. I've converted all my models into Death Guard with guts hanging out, rotted skulls for heads, WWI German-style helmets, plague knives dripping with pus, cloven feet, pustules, and all manner of awesomeness. The repetitive designs are simply the consequence of them trying to get as many models into that box as possible for the lowest price to attract new buyers. And YOU get to benefit from it. Seriously, only two of the chosen are the same, and have you every actually seen Guardsmen? They all look EXACTLY THE SAME. Yet no one complains. Space Marine tacticals? Do not get me started on how completely boring you can make those look. If you convert, yeah, you can make them look sick. Ahem, isn't that what you have to do to EVERY box GW makes? Even SW Wolf Guard get kit-bashed, and those models look absolutely awesome! The point is, you are limiting yourself with your attitude. The models are an amazing starting point and make for absolutely sick conversions because of the INSANE level of detail in each model.

    4. Its not only the characters and starter set that are getting this limited part treatment. All of the new csm stuff has little room for change. Many of us prefer the ease of kit bashing multi part models without dealing with the headache of filing down and green stuffing our models. The chosen and champ look amazing, but trying to change their weapons is an unnecessary pain in the ass. It's looking more like gw is going the route of no more extra bits in their boxes. I wonder if its because of third party kit bashing.

      Singel minis are Not GWs Main line

      They sell boxes with 5-10 Minis more than Siegel figs. Besides the Game is about Armys Not Heros.

    6. Again, I have to disagree. Anyone who has actually opened the new Warp Talon/Raptor box will get a load of awesome conversion bits, great minis, and very cool, very convertible parts with a number of poses. The DV are just like any and every starter kit GW has ever put out..... except the models look ten times as cool as anything in AOBR. The Warp Talons are in line with thew Space Wolf boxes for sheer coolness factor. The new plastic hero minis are awesome because they are SO much easier to convert than those stupid metal models. I literally have no words to express how thankful I am that I will probably never have to deal with another metal model from GW. Plastic is much, much easier to convert, regardless of the number of parts, than a metal model can ever hope to be.

    7. a lotta the new kits lack much room for modification because a lot of the new stuff lacks many war gear options unfortunate perhaps, but the basic stuff that already existed is pretty flexable. the new toys I think GW wanted to simply give some new specialist units.

  4. I don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand I loved the chappy model and want more of them if they go the sang priest route of spreading them throughout your army. However, on the other hand I don't know what the point of trying to nab a limited edition when everyone else is just going to get it a few months down the road.

    1. It's both a good and bad thing. You don't feel you have to rush out and buy the limited edition. But if you do then you feel cheated. I hope that the limited editions are slightly different or cheaper.

      Delete
    2. They'll definitely be cheaper. If GW follows its own pricing conventions, that chappy will be about 20 dollars. The regular box was 99, and the limited edition box was 110, so for 11 bucks, you got a 20 dollars model, if you bought the LE box.

  5. I share your ambivalence - of late GWs limited releases are a real moving target.

    The Wall of Martyrs limited run returned broken up in into its individual components. Was it good policy not to know that was going to be the case in advance?

    I also noticed that Crusade of Fire is listed as no longer available on the US website and it hasn't even shipped yet.

    1. Crusade of fire has been sold out in the US for awhile now, I think it sold out in the 1st few days.

    2. I bought 2 wall of martyrs LE sets for my league to enjoy while we game. I paid 180$ a pop with my flgs 10% disc for pre ordering them. I can't be happier I did. I saved 85$ off buying all the parts separately. GW has a habit of rewarding people for investing early.

      Delete
    3. Guilty for believing the old limited edition lie. :)

      Delete
    4. Yeah you saved much.
      But would you have bought the LE if you had knowen you Could instead BuY just 1 Wall section & 2 Bunkers? (maybe some folks would have likes that Option more?) Also would you have wanted longer Till buying? LE are Not really LE if they sometimes releas the stuff later singaly. And why Not releas all the LEs now... Like Singel SH figs? Or Parts from dreadfleet?

      I think its just a cheap PR Trick to do LEs and People will Feel f...ed over After Time and Thats Bad for Sales.
      I am realy disappointed by GW & 6th. Wich has a Lot of rules for the worse, just to Push Sales.

    5. yeah the extremne limit on crusade of fire is a bit weird.

  6. I can understand why they did it (kinda a waste to make a limited plastic model run when the moulds are so expensive) but I don't realy have to like it.
    Guess I can take the chaplin of the sprue and sell him now before he is worth less.

  7. Awww.It will be great!.It's a great model

  8. Chaplain, even. Unless we're also getting plastic Keystone Kops boxed set.

  9. IIRC they didn't say the model was limited ed, just that the set, which included him, was. Could be wrong though.

    Even if they do release him later, I don't mind too much. Paid 8USD extra for him; will probably be 15-20USD for the clampack.

    1. So it's just deceptive advertising, not an outright lie. That's much better...

      Delete
    2. Yeah, it is much better because then we can't bitch about it! Nonetheless, the clampack will probably cost £12, when the limited DV box only cost £3.50 extra...

    4. How many months early did you get your chaplain? And for £3.50 I'd say that was a good deal!

  10. Feel bad for those people that payed xtra.

    Ofcourse the models ptice will determine this

  11. Well played, GW. I won't be so quick to drop a dime on a 'limited edition/release' product in the future, if this news proves to be true.

    On the positive side; the model is so cool it should be available to all.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great news, now I can get another to chop up!

    ReplyDelete
  13. why is everyone complaining? I am glad we may get this model as a normal release. What is the big deal you werent lied to, it was a limited release you just got it cheaper. So what is really the big deal did you feel special having one? I sure hope not cause that would be just dumb .

    1. The deal is that some could have thought of buying the box as the only way to opbtain the chaplain. Those that bought it considering it was their only possibility to own the miniature sure will feel cheated.

    2. Dont be stupid... Its Not about Feeling Spezial
      These LE figs or Gamesday only figs have collectors value! Some People Pay Big Money on eBay. Its Not fair to fals advertise Things. Fans that Payed a Lot will be Pissed!

  14. A limited release means it is limited, not unlimited that's just retarted in general.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well, it sucks people paying extra, including me. The problem is I paid a sizeable amount extra to get the limited edition on release from my FLGS when by the sounds, I could have just waited, bought onlinand then got the Chaplain a couple of months later.

    1. Sounds like then they simply changed their plans. it might be their market research division simply concluded that the ill will from releaseing it seperate would be minimal, but that sales of it would be brisk. it could also be that due to miscommunication they produced more of the chaplans then they produced LE boxes so they are going to sell them instead of sit on them.

  19. I can see this happening to a degree maybe not the exact same model. Maybe with different ranged weapon options obviously finecast.

    Be nice if they cooled it with limited edition stuff getting a bit old, bad enough half the time you don't even know whats around the corner release wise. Let alone actually have the cash at last when is up for pre-order.

    1. I think they wouldn't bother changing the sprue for the sake of a weapon option, plastic moulds are expensive! The original sprue is clam pack sized to begin with so they'd probably just make more and repackage them.

  20. How to say it... "F you GW" should be adequate. I bought limitede DV just for the unique chap and now they screw me up, great work, great work. And I though "greedy GW" times are over.

  21. I'm not disappointed I bought the Limited Edition Dark Vengeance set, I wanted pretty much all of the models but the 'limited' chaplain probably did sway me to buy it a bit quicker than I usually would (particularly after the fiasco trying to get the 6th edition core rule book -_-)
    I am disappointed that it was advertised misleadingly though. They could've been honest and said the chaplain was an exclusive EARLY release, not LIMITED. I'm sure that would have worked as well without these repercussions.
    As others have already said though, by buying the kit I got a damn nice mini for £3.50, months before I'd otherwise have to wait for. For me it wasn't about feeling special, I liked showing everyone my cool new addition to my army (a rarity because I suck at converting!)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Didn't like the default head of the model, so I swapped it out for a modded beakie (beakie chaplain, unheard of), and the incorporated backpack was kind of annoying to file down before replacing it with a jump-pack. And don't even get me started on the DA symbol on the cloak, that was bitch to remove.
    Other than that, I like the mini, especially the pose, and, while disappointed in GW for misinformation, I am kinda glad more people will get to enjoy this neat model.

  23. At my local store (not GW) they have like dozens of the Limited edt. box left, and as far as i can understand they got even more boxes in their basement.

  24. Sigh. I wish people would learn the difference between Chaplains and Charlie Chaplin.
