  1. I just love that picture. Hope you'll reveal rules for Greater Daemons soon....

    Also, I wonder what the Battleforce include...

    1. it has
      10 bloodletters
      10 deamonettees
      5 seekers
      3 plague drones

      Delete
    2. Odd mix, no Tzeentch? I'd have hoped horrors instead of daemonettes to give some ranged or maybe flamers instead of seekers considering they're new-ish still.

    3. my mistake its

      no plague drones

      3 nurgling
      3 screamers

  2. I want to see the books cover. Gimme gimme gimme.....

    1. It might be out there, I just have not been able to get it yet. After work today, I will be looking.

    2. Yay, also seeing the cover should also mean we find out who wrote it. (in Theory)

      Delete
  3. Saddened that there's no Greater Daemons listed. I desperately want a Blood Thirster but the finecast version is 80's style fail and the Forgeworld version is too big/expensive.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, they really should be ashamed to still be selling all four of those...

      Delete
    2. Plus if they wanted money, I probably would have gotten both books and all 4 GDs in one go.

      Delete
    3. Big monster kits are rarely that profitable for them, however. Most players will rarely ever buy more than 1-2 of each kit. Like the PP Colossals, they take time and have to be priced at a premium. They won't make it with volume of sales like they would with, say, a box of Tactical Marines.

      The Greater Demons are coming. This gives them a bunch of waves to work with, fortunately, and if the latest release clip(s) are an indicator, it won't be long before we see them.

      Delete
    4. Oh, and they are 1998 fail, not 80's style fail.

      Delete
    5. We can still agree they're fail though! :)

      Delete
    6. Back in the Days those were the best sculpted figures. They were far superior than any demon Model Before. Far more detailed than Dragons and other compareable Sized figs.

      Ofc Times have changed and plastic would be nice. But that doesnt mean the next ones will Look better :(

      Delete
  4. The Daemon Psychic Powers better not be as shitty as the Chaos Space Marine Psychic Powers were.

    1. I wouldn't say the Slaanesh ones were too bad. That one power that grants +1 S to sonic weapons and -1T to an enemy unit is crazy good IMO.
      I love the nurgle one that gives all weapons in a unit the "gets hot rule" also.

      Delete
    2. The slaanesh ones were mind-blowingly powerful.

      Delete
  5. 20 € for the plastic Nurgle herald?? ...Hmmmm....Why?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Prices are pretty steep. Luckily I'm focusing on Nurgle as allies for my CSM Death Guard force, unless the Daemons are more appealing as the primary detachment. If so, then it my wallet will take alot of hurt.

    1. I've pretty much got the same thing in mind. Going to get the codex and then decide from there.. really curious whats in that battleforce, the CSM battle force is aweful..

  7. So, this year's price increase looks like it's in the books. 20-25% again. Both chariot kits and the WoC chariot kits went up about 25%.

    I just hope that the 50% on the WoC large monster kit gets applied elsewhere.

    1. I think it's worth noting that while there are some big price increases, in a lot of cases the quality also goes up a lot too. The new hardback 40k codexes are a much more nicely presented than the previous softback ones for example. And the newer models often have a lot more detail and customisation options.

      GW may be more expensive than almost any other model company, but you'd also be hard pressed to find another company with quite the same level of quality, availability and customisability in their models.

      Delete
    2. Ya know Fantasy flights 40k RPG books (of various types) are the same quality & price, yet about 3 times thicker.

      Delete
    3. Gotta agree with Mr Pilkington about the quality. privateer press Gw's closest competitor doesn't have the same level of quality.

      Delete
    4. Now computers are becoming more involved. Detail will not really be an issue for much longer. It will come down to who has the best 3D artists and creative minds and GW certainly do hold the monopoly in that department.
      GW overprice because at the moment they can but soon..

      Delete
    5. PP charges $120 for comically disproportionate Colossals that are single-pose and people talk about over-priced?

      Every model company with miniatures of decent quality overcharge. It's a niche market within a niche hobby.

      Delete
    6. Now do you count the misspellings in that $50 Dark Angels book as good quality printing, or do they get a mulligan on that one? Prettier pictures and nicer covers/paper, while appreciated, does get a little less alluring when they forget to proof-read. There's a reason I went out and bought the Iron Man DVD this weekend and not Iron Guy with a sticker on it saying "recently FAQ'd to replace the word 'Guy' with 'Man'..."

      Delete
    7. Level of detail and character /model design. Both warhammer fantasy and 40k have a very distinct look and feel. The likes of warmachine/hordes just dont. The rules maybe good but the models all look a bit generic.

      Delete
  8. Plastic Herald of Nurgle at same price than other Heralds??Why?O_O

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe that info is wrong. it is weird to see plastic pricing matching finecast...but maybe they're charging extra for the little nurgling hanging about.

      Delete
    2. It's obvious. Plastic is free of bubbles

      Delete
    3. too too much. £15 for a single figure? Daylight robbery.

      Think I'll just convert the Plaguebearer with the big horns, or get some other manufacturers mini.

      Delete
    4. He's bigger than a standard Plaguebearer.

      People also have to consider that single characters don't move in volume like infantry do. That's why the price is higher. PP does it too. The way a company profits on low-volume models is to price them at a premium.

      Pretty simple to understand.

      Delete
    5. There was a rumor that GW is Planing to gradualy drop Finecast for plastic ICs in the next 5 years or so.

      Ofc the Price will go up. Just like with the change from Metal to Finecast :D
      Becaus plastic is a cheaper Medium.

      You know the GW Logic. People will always Pay more for a Singel Mini that has better rules!

      Delete
  9. 25 bucks for the individual heralds seems a little steep for a single plastic figure. The rest of the stuff seems about right though. Dollars to doughnuts that the Greater Daemons will be over 80, so they better be good size models for he price.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Should be clear "The rest of the stuff seems about right in comparison to other current GW products."

      That looks better

      Delete
    2. zWelcome to econ 101. In order to make enough on the models that an average player will buy at mos three of, they will have to make the unit cost higher, since the reduced sales means that the cost of production/shipping cannot be as easily absorbed by sales volume.


      or would you rather they be the crap that privateer puts out?

      Delete
    3. Oh, I completely understand, and GW is definitely the "premium" so one can expect to pay a little more for them. Just commenting that 25 is a little much for a single model. I'll probably pay it though. Because I'm weak.

      Delete
    4. I would also be remiss if I didn't point out that the Chaos SM Aspiring Champion clam pack is only 20 bucks, so it's kind of a big price jump. Again though: Will buy, weak, blah blah blah.

      Delete
    5. Then how come so many other manufacturers with smaller economies of scale can do the same for a fraction of the cost? Look at Wyrd's range for instance. Don't buy it, as long as people still pay then the prices will continue to rise.

      Delete
    6. They use lower quality plastics and molds resulting in inferior products more liable to break. Plus, setting a price point isn't all about the product being produced, there's a number of factors at work. The fact that each person who decides to collect a daemon army will only buy one of each herald at most (if they don't simply just convert one) is one of the most obvious factors.

      Doesn't mean I can't complain about it though.

      Delete

    8. Thats rubbish Chris Kyle, Wyrd's plastics are certainly as good as GWs, they are on nice stackable sprues, the detail is good, and the design is better than GW.

      Delete
    9. Using my full name makes it sound like I'm in trouble!

      And if you say so. I've never seen Wyrd's plastics so maybe I should have been more careful to not use a blanket statement, but I have heard complaints about Privateer's plastics at my FLGS. Usually that they're more prone to breaking in the box and if you drop the metal/plastic hybrids and they land wrong.

      Delete
    10. PS: I may not know too much about Wyrd, but I'm also willing to bet they have much much lower overhead than GW.

      Delete
  10. I know you are in the USA but how come you never put the uk £ on these listings it always the (gags in mouth) euro as the other currency. Love the blog but could you put the mother currency please ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually in this case the £ value is probably really interesting for discussions on price increase since I've gotten the feeling that's what they use as a baseline (being a UK company and all).

      But in the bigger picture the € is quite a bit more widely used.

    1. Yup, however. It seems the poster from Warseer found this on the Daemonic Legion forum, in which THAT poster then deleted all the posts. I suspect he got in trouble with the mods.

    2. Well I play both 40k and Fantasy daemons, I just want the same author for both books...

      Delete
    3. Matt Ward.. Jebus! I'm not sure what to think about that. lol

    4. Ward also wrote the Grey Knights codex. Kinda seems like a conflict of interest.

    5. Unless he was planted by the inquisition to undermine the new daemon codex ;)

    8. Are we forgetting who wrote the previous Daemon Army Book?

  14. The prices are what the prices are. I'll get more pleasure from a box of GW stuff that I would from taking my family to see Die Hard. Luckily for me, I positively hate the whole chaos esthetic, so as long as GW ignores my armies my wallet is safe.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm actually surprised at the cost of the Khorne and Tzeentch dual kits. I thought they would easily be at the £35 pound mark. I expected that for the drones. Heralds though.. I agree seems a tad over priced compared to other things that are cheaper.. I mean I like the nurgle one but he isn't that much different looking to any of the other PB's and you can get 10 of them for £5 more than he costs.

    ReplyDelete
  16. you answered your own question, so to speak, the reason the box of plaguebearers are cheaper is thet you are likely to buy more. thus, they can absorb the cost of pruducing them more easily.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Then they should give him away free in the Plaguebearers box! Actually I can't see many people buying more than two boxes of Plaguebearers at most.

      Other manufacturers character figures are between £1.50 and £6 in my experience. £15 is so far of the mark it is ridiculous, especially given the market share GW have. They are just taking the piss.

      Delete
    2. GW giving away stuff?! In these days?!?!

      ...


      Sorry, I just had to pick myself up off the floor.

      Delete
    3. I just bought Rask, new caster for Minions in hordes. 10 dollars online 15 retail, nicely detailed, metal and bigger then these guys.

      Delete
    4. Also doesn't have to be shipped overseas. There is also the likelihood that, since they do not have the following, nor do they reinvest in improving their product( which has not significantly improved since the first wave), their price point can be lower.

      Delete
    5. @Nurgle burgers: love the name btw, the necron annihilation barge had free plastic overlord (kinda) and the vampire counts zombie dragon had a free Strigoi Ghoul King Vampire model (ok, that one's pushing it a lot...)

      Delete
  17. when comparing these to other models I have a feeling GW is going to do another cross the board price increase....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wow :O
      Big surprise -.-
      As if DAs & CSMs weren't Proof enough.

      But its prob just becaus GW had a Great annual Year in Profits. So that explains why they have to do it 0_0

      Delete
  18. So, no greater daemons this wave like we were seeing under most rumors, why the Hell are they forcing us to use models that are as old as I am?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Old models aren't that bad, Kharn and Typhus for example still look fine. But that Bloodthirster man... Lord.

    2. *Hides the nice new Kharn conversion*
      Typhus sure is nice though!

  19. Pretty good Battle Force box- then again I have liked all of the Battle Force boxes released. Of course I already have what's in the box so I'll scratch that one off the list.

    I'm okay with the prices- ill have to buy 2 each of the Khorne and Tzeentch chariots in order to build the two options (I'm very interested in how the Nurgle Chariot will work out- if there is one).

    Depending on the squad size of the Nurgle Drones, I'm banking on 7, I'll have to buy 2-3 boxes of then. And, of course, one each if the Heralds. With my nifty store discount I'm looking at $350 dollars- not too bad.
