So GW is finally bringing out some 30K stuff for 40K as seen here, 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.

Guys...guys...guys

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.
