WargamerAU Forums _ 40k General Discussion _ Really GW

Posted by: Rod.H Mar 18 2017, 07:29 PM

So GW is finally bringing out some 30K stuff for 40K as seen, but man the price. It's metal-level though it's plastic. I'm probably just going to get the box set only.

If that's how they're pricing Custodes & SoS, plastic Sisters are going to be similar.

I wouldn't bother buying the boxed set either.

I don't need another land raider or rhino just to paint them gold.

Wait until they do a package with only the custodes stuff at a reasonable price.

I was pretty disappointed in the pricing for the Sisters too. Other releases lately had, to my mind. seemed to be a fairly reasonable price but I feel that $70 for 5 fairly small minis pushes it.

I've got the 5 from BoP and that will be enough I feel for use in SW: A.

They're pricey, but are we really that shocked?

Well, I wasn't expecting to pay $140 for a 10 unit Sisters of Silence squad. I was thinking more along the lines of $90 for 10.

It's the same sprues from the boxed set. They're available on ebay for about $45 delivered.

I agree. They're definitely pricey, but GWs pricing has been all over the shop lately.

The Sisters are expensive. The Custodes seem about right considering the level of detail on them.

Holy ######balls batman...$200 for a unit of 10 troops.

Still nothing on the old Vampire Count Blood Knights. $165 for 5 models.

Posted by: Starfire Mar 19 2017, 06:37 PM

Hahaha, I'd forgotten about them!

Buying all this stuff separately would cost over $450, so the box is clearly a good deal because it saves you $200.

Well played GW...well played...

You say that, as it was shocking at the time, but by current GW pricing trends that's nothing remarkable.
