  1. the pricing of the clampack seems a bit much. He must be pretty big but even then the Terminator sized clampacks are only £18. Also hoping the cult mechanicus book would be a proper £30 dex. 80 pages doesn't seem like enough to cover the Mechanicus

    1. It's a mini dex covering this subsection of the mechanicus like the Skitarii book, I'd guess there'll be a full mechanicus book further down the line. And yeah £22 clam pack seems a bit nuts.

    2. If the Dominus is anything like 30k Magos Dominus he's going to be bigger than a Terminator:

      ...even without the (daft) upper part.

      80 pages seems plenty when you think about it; take 20 pages or whatever for rules & datasheets for the six units and you're still left with 60 pages for Ad Mech gumph.

      Dominus Edition incoming!

    3. Don't ever forget the price creep, ladies and gents. The prices gradually increase on each category of new release every three months or so.

    4. Ill wait to see what we are getting for the 22 quid but these are becoming an increasingly hard sell when compared to the boxed sets.

      Delete
    5. No they don't, and the haven't.

      Besides, inflation on 100% of products in countries that don't suck exists.

      Delete
    6. We should be seeing price jncreases on the new Space Marine boxed sets next month. Basic infantry has already started to go up (Skitarii, $4.00 more USD).

      Delete
    7. Had another look and he doesnt look all that big, though he is certainly on a large base.

      Delete
    8. Starchild what are prices like in Amerca because Skitarii are cheaper in UK than other equivalents. They are about £23, where as Scions are £21 for 5 guys, DAs £20.50 for 5 guys same for Necron Immortals, Tactical squads are £25. Is it radically different in the US then?

      Delete
    9. I think £20 is actually OK for a codex. They could all be this size and price if they left out the repetitive fluff and pointless painted miniature gallery (we do have the Internet GW...).

      Delete
    10. @ pinky: It all depends on the FOC slot the models are intended for. In general, Elites kits cost twice as much as Troops kits. (There are still exceptions, for example Dire Avengers costing twice as much as Guardians, which have "elite" abilities and weapons compared to the rank & file Craftworld citizenry.)

      @Knight: Warhammer Visions has rendered the hobby section in Codex Skitarii completely redundant.

      They should really just drop codex books altogether at this point. Hobby coverage can be in Warhammer Visions and White Dwarf, while background coverage can stay with the Black Library and White Dwarf. Rules and army lists should be constantly updated and available for free online. This is what needs to happen.

    11. FOC slots are dead.
      Besides only ammount of miniatures or size can be a argument for any sane Person.

      Collectors items can be any price!
      They charge you as much as they think , how Bad you will want it.

      Delete
    12. The FOC is far from dead, especially if you're playing Maelstrom or other objective-based missions. Crazy person. :P

      Delete
  2. *looks at his 3rd edition codices which cost the same and only had 60 pages*

  3. Well according to the guy who sculpted it, it has a few optional parts such as heads and weapons. Most Clampacks dont.

    1. Where can we find that quote?

      Delete
    2. There is no quote.

      I was there when the almighty Goodwin spoketh the words. he sculpted the parts so it just depends what GW decided to put on the frame but he seemed certain there was more than just an optional head.

      Delete
    3. Ha! How did I know the Great Godwin sculpted the Adeptus Mechanicus? Well it was easy actually. It's a simple matter to discern his top quality work from the other sculptors. Good to know he still gets time to sculpt once in a while!

    4. Ooooooooooo!!!!!

      Much coolness!

      Delete
  4. More transfer sheets! Excellent! Now I'm torn between Mars and Ryza for the paint scheme. The one I'm really interested in is Stygies VIII though. If only...

    1. But is it a new transfer sheet, or just more of the one issued with Skitarii? The mini transfer sheet in the Cult Mech Kastellan Robots is the same as the one in the Skitarii boxes.

      Delete
    2. The rumour says A4. Those are the big sheets.

      Delete
    3. If you're on the warhammer 40k page on facebook(it's a large group with just under 20k people, hard to say exactly which I'm sure there is plenty of groups) but I post pictures of my Ryza Admech quite often if you're curious!

      Delete
    4. That's awesome Josh. Will you be using the Ryza transfer sheet?

      Delete
  5. and i hoped we were out of the era where a box of five guardsman sized models costed £25. ten skitarii rangers are £23.50, what gives

    ReplyDelete

    1. It depends on the unit category. Elites cost roughly twice what a Troops box costs. Electro Priests are elites so the cost should be comparable to Tempestus Scions.

      Delete
    2. Price creep just hit new Elites boxes!£25.00 is an increase of $3.00 to $4.00 USD. So in the States the Electro Priests will probably cost between $38 to $39.00.

      Given this new Elites box price point, and the rules being similar to 5th edition Dark Eldar Mandrakes, I don't see GW selling a lot of these kits. The Skitarii troops box offers far more value for the money.

      Delete
    3. But the number of models in a unit generally depends on the number of legs they supply (the major limiting factor). So they can often (like the stern guards) offer many more other parts but not enough goddamn legs.

      Delete
    4. So happy Dark Eldar's infantry kits are from the glory days of 5th ed. It's somewhat protected them from price creep and I can still buy 10 dudes for less than £20.

      Still gorgeous models too!

      Delete
    5. @Crodon: That's exactly why I have ordered extra leg bitz from eBay in the past.

      Delete
    6. @Thomas Gardiner
      Same with Orks. £18 for ten boyz is pretty good compared to £25 for a tactical squad.

      Delete
    7. Count your blessings. Any eldar aspect warrior squad of 5/6 models costs 41$ USD. And they are still resin models. At least these will be plastic.

      Delete
    8. Use instant mold or pk-blue
      Saves you 100s of €£$

      Delete
    9. By the time all the Aspect Warriors finally make it to plastic, they could easily cost £30.00 per five models. There will be plenty of new release price creep until then to get to that point.

      Delete
  6. I think they are a bit bigger than Guardsmen, think they are on 40ml bases?
    Not saying they are cheap though

    1. Electro Priests are on 32mm bases as per the leaked poster.

      Delete
    2. i was looking for that poster online. Couldnt find it anywhere! Where did it come from anyway? Was it free with a white dwarf?

      Delete
    3. I got that poster with a preorder I made at a GW store.

      Delete
    4. It's from ordering from GW. Want my spare? :D

      Delete
    5. Noooooo! Send your spare poster to me!!

      Delete
    6. my local gw got a copy of the poster just to display/show off

      Delete
    7. Yeah, that would be great Mauler, Grab it next time we catch up mate.

      Delete
  7. And in news of (un)releases the Adeptus Astartes Strike Force is no longer available. Therefore new space marine likely but not only that one of the items in there will probably be replaced. I think they probably put that dreadnought (instead of venerable) in there to shift spare units.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's bizarre, I'm the worlds biggest mechanicus fan, preorder everything. Don't get a special mechanicus pin or poster. Buddy of mine orders fantasy stuff, gets pin! Lame. Same with the marine tactical pin. What gives?

    1. It's random. I think it all depends on the person packing the shipment. I keep getting Khorne and world eater pins when I order Tau or DE stuff from forgeworld

      Delete
    2. Retail forgot to pack them or they keept them or they had no more.
      Thats Why random freebeis are Bad advertisment.
      They dont get people to reorder.
      And GW doesnt need to Set them selbes apart for competitors.

      Delete
    3. Of course random freebies encourage people to re-order; everyone loves free stuff...and the chance to get free stuff! lol

  9. first WD leaks! The Techpriest has the option of Volkite weapons :D

    2. Volkite weapons! So not everything was lost during the Heresy! =>

      But does the model include a Volkite weapon?

      Delete
    3. Well, the Almighty Goodwin said it had weapon options... But Volkite!?!?!?

      Oh Jes... THANK YOU.

      Wait a minute... Volkite in 40k?... Yep, can definately see Forgeworld stuff getting 40k rules now. Volkite was one of the things holding them back (the Knight with Volkite weapon didn't get 40k rules)

      Delete
    4. Good point - there seems to be a general assumption that the next IA book will bring a lot of the Mechanicum content to the Adeptus Mechanicus, we might even see it at the FW open day in July? They do usually have a new book at these events...

      Delete
    5. Yesssssss!

      Chaos Marine #1: "Huh, that can't be a Volkite weapon, I've not seen one of those for what must be 10,000 years realtime..."
