Coming Soon- Techpriest, Terminator Captain, and Info about the Prices on BoC



We have seen the new Blood Angel Chaplain, and now there are more images appearing from the leaked Warhammer Visions showing off the other releases that are coming. We can assume these are coming within the following couple weeks.

  1. OMG they cant lower the price! We should file a lawsuit!

    1. Yes they can and no, they aren't

    2. Well technically they did. When visions was printed Betrayal of Calth was priced at $185, and they are selling it at $150. So that looks like a decrease to me...

    3. Its not BoC (betrayal of calth) its BaC (Betrayal at Calth)

      Delete
    4. I knew Calth would be limited and reruns woud go up in price.
      No surprise for me.

      BA chaplin costs as much as a Sangguard squad that make 5x ICs. GW why do you even bother? -.-

  2. Those prices are off, Calth is listed at £110 instead of £95, maybe price creep or is it fake??

    1. Visions is printed well in advance, they decreased the price after this was printed. £95 or $150 is the price. Hence my sarcastic comment above.

    2. Oh, just read comments, who seem to agree its a typo

      Delete
    3. I know, reading and comprehending is difficult...

      It's not a typo, it's the price the price GW thought they could ask for BaC at the time of printing of that particular issue of Warhammer Visions. Later, they realized that that price wasn't something the market would bear.

      GW doesn't price products based on production costs, they price products on what the market will bear. "Yeah, but GW doesn't do market research!" maybe the don't, but they can analyse their own sales figures. GW's aggressive price increases and schedule mean that they have to brake more often, then a company that isn't. GW pulled on the brakes this time.

    4. Blasphemy Cergorach! They have no business models nor do they analyze sales data!

      Delete
    5. Elastic demand for a luxury product does wonders for the public's perceived notions of business models, or the lack thereof. The truth is, demand for GW products remains relatively steady no matter how high they price things, so they don't care about prices as much as we might think they do.

    6. I'm quite certain gw original price was thier normal pricing of 20% off and even at that price this bundle would of sold a lot. However gw is very conscious of how badly AoS is doing and wants this bundle to catch on fire and sell a ton. So they aggressively prices this bundle at 50% off. It is clear via thier pricing and the word from store managers that gw expects this bundle to sell a lot. And I am sure they are hoping for many players to start playing 30k-40k again. However I hope most people don't expect the future individual releases to stay at this 50% mark down of equivalent Forgeworld products. BaC is an entry game meant to attract new players. This is why it's priced aggressively and the prior pricing structure in visions is a clear example of what the intent for this product will be.

    7. How badly AoS is doing? Really?

      Delete
    8. Seriously, do tell. I'm not very enthused by AoS but I'm a bit perplexed by people saying authoritatively how good or bad it's doing. Unless you're upper GW management or part of their sales analytics team *there's no way you'd know other than your subjective circle of observation*

      Delete
    9. He probably is GW staff.
      Thats why he gave the salespitch on how generous GW is by not priceing it even higher.

      Delete
    10. we shall see @ Starchild. the more people leave GW hobby the more they (GW) will adjust prices accordingly. they have shareholders and investors to satisfy and quota's to meet. if this is wrong thinking then GW would have released BaC and Skarbrand among others at the higher suggested price. since they lowered the price i'd say GW are "elastic" as well. they don't meet demand set by shareholders or investors then someone has to be held accountable.....

  3. BA Captain looks a lot like cpt karlean from death storm set

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thought so ... Does mean the unique model from deathstorm set is no longer unique!

      Delete
    2. That will be a first, but at least you had over an year of running him.

      The box was limited edition, not the character, why leaving a full mold taking dust!

      Delete
    3. I'm not fussed :) My Captain K is unique as he's painted my way :P

      And I play him as a generic Captain more often than I play Karlian :)

      Delete
    4. Fiuh! ;)

      I'm rather happy, so I could get an extra one to make a bit of conversion on it :)

      Delete
    5. I'm puzzled why of all those limited characters, they chose to release him. A plastic warboss and broodlord would've made more sense. Maybe they'll get around to them eventually. Would have liked another Grukk for conversions.

      Delete
    6. Blood Angels Terminator Captains sell much better than said xenos models. I'm sure Solaq will get released like this too at some point.

      Delete
    7. Tyranids are rumoured to have a splash release soon. And orks are due for a release as well. I kinda expect orks to have a big release next year with fw redoing IA8 and black library doing that 12 novel " the beast" series

      Delete
    8. Post Heresy (pre 40k) Orks could be interesting.

  4. So it's a BA TDA capt. Atia didn't talk about the UM TDA capt from STFU ?

    2. Oups, it was Strike Force Ultra.

    3. Still possible we may see the SFU Captain released separately in the future.

  5. ok ok so if THIS is true. then GW just screwed themselves into a sale (FINALLY) from me..... WOOT WOOT. (if not i got an aunt who is sending me a PS4 anyhow)

  6. That chaplain is awesome. Makes the captain look terrible!

  7. Hang on, the techpriest is only available with the Russ?!? NOOOOOOOO!

    1. Tell me about it....
      FFS.
      The first horribly expensive 'clampack' that I was actually going to grit my teeth and buy just for the cool factor and they bundle it with a bloody russ... am wondering if this tank commander kit is just the vehicle accessory sprue and the squadron command frame bundled with a russ or have they put it on a new sprue with just the relevant starmy bits on?

      Delete
    2. Doubt the'd spend time recutting the upgrade sprue when they can just throw it all in.
      Guess the price isn't so bad then, assuming you need the Russ in the forst place.

      I guess GW is taking a page out of WG's book with these bloated bundle deals.

      Delete
    3. Actually, on closer inspection those are all new bits. The helmet of the commander is different from the old one as well.

      Delete
    4. eBay it will be, then. mutherf***

      Delete
    5. I know... this is why I still don't have that lovely Reclusiam Command Squad Chaplain. :'-(

      Delete
    6. Nah...
      The commander is exactly the same as the old one that comes with the newer Russ...
      I'm looking at it right now..
      The Techpriest is still FRIKKEN AWESOME though.

      So you get the current Leman and the upgrade sprue with the new Techpriest in the box.
      I'm getting it..

    8. Yes he is. I may have to make an eBay bid raid. The Motive Force is strong with this one.

    9. its the old finecast techpriest...its just a bundel

      Delete
    10. What? This is a brand new, never been released Tech Priest. To my knowledge anyway!

      Delete
  8. They lowered price after seeing falling AoS sales and people literally boycotted GW for life...lets say approx 1 in 4 even though estimates say more...then they need to drop price to tempt newbies in...lets say by 25%...done. Problem is they are injecting sprues way to far in advance...and without a GOOD marketing plan. Must be Arietta on the mound bc nothing but strike 2.

    1. There is way too much conjecture here. None of us know what GW's plans are. For all we know their marketing plans are unfolding as intended, and unless we see actual sales data on AoS, we can't know how well the game has sold beyond anecdotal evidence.

      Delete
    2. By their marketing plan succeeding, I meant they probably wanted to sack their long-time supporter Warhammer player base in favour of younger players with shorter attention spans. In that regard the plan has worked quite well, if that is what was intended.

      Delete
    3. Yeah I blame AoS on EVERYTHING...
      Chris Sacco that has to be one of the most Troll worthy Trolls that has ever Trolled on the Trollternet...
      I mean it's not like the only info we have seen about sales from GW in the last 6 month's say's that sales are doing BETTER then this time last year....
      Jeez the nerd rage runs deep with this one...
      Haha!
      :P

    4. I can only comment on my area. Only 1 LGS, AoS has been a big seller, both for newbies and fat beards. There is one group of old fat guys that still play WHFB (I am one of them) but the owner is getting ready to turf us. Of the 9 of us playing fantasy, only 2 of us have purchased ANYTHING in the last THREE years. From what I hear, that was the entire problem with WHFB everywhere.

      Delete
    5. New models and a starter set that presents good value must be helping sales considerably, the cost of models climbing into the ridiculous cannot. I can jump up and down all I want but until people stop buying at these elevated prices GW will just keep on gouging. Personally I've stopped buying new GW models due to the prices.

      Delete
    6. That's the whole point right there. Elastic demand equals more or less constant sales at any price point.

      Delete
    7. No one boycotted GW for AoS

      GW decided they would ditch every customer that like balanced Games and a esstablished univers.

      Dont hate the players.
      Hate the game.

      Delete
    8. the more people priced out and the less that can buy in will affect GW's bottom line. that is fact. another fact is GW and ~don't do market research~ yet = lowered price on BaC (if i read that right) before release their marketing team said it would not sell at that price point.......Skarbrand lowered as well.....two examples of GW contradicting themselves. (look at financial report)

      Delete
    9. yes, seb lots of people just stopped playing fantasy (in general) when AoS came along

      also the second part is true

      and thirdly true

      Delete
  9. Intressting that now they releas a the "Limited" excusiv to set figures seperat?!
    Looks like people that just buy the set for the Limited figs get screwed over!

  11. So they release techpriest with a leman russ and still leave servitors overpriced in finecast?.. Sigh..

    1. Just speculation on my part, but I'm expecting a multipart Techmarine box with servitors included on the sprues with all the options... not any time soon though.

      Delete
  12. so the three characters mentioned early this week are: Captain. Karlean, tech priest (with russ), and Blood Angels priest

    Speculation: they are trying to get rid of old russ kits for a new one? i am not caught up on guard so they may have updated it lately

  13. Serious 32 bucks for one Assassin a Leman Russ Tank and Techpriest for 75 come on GW you can do better....
