Hmmm, does matt want!?!

Not sure on that one, seems all of those units will need to be bulked to be used (although those two vet squads could probably have 5-10 models, not have to have 10)

Does get me all the new toys though Wink

Seems a bit pricey for me... I want the dex and the drop pod and maybe even the thudd gun but jeez pricey...

When you coming back to town Matt?

Yeah, if you look at it though... it's not that bad. Everything in there except the scout bikers, captain and the drop pods are metals.

But yeah dunno.

I'll be back around Sept 17th/18th... depending on how long we spend in vegas/other places on the way back over.

Yeah... I'll admit I was pretty damned disappointed that the vets are metal. I was really hoping they'd be plastic.

Man...after seeing the Black reach box this seems way pricey. But it does give you the new goodies in one spot. And a codex.

Yeah, it's no steal. Nor do the contents make any sense for army construction purposes. But if you need the new hotness and you need it first, this is your kit

Yeah, they know their audience. This is for all those existing Space Marine players who want the new stuff and were going to get it all anyways.

Anyone know the $$ breakdown?

My guess:

$22 Codex
$50 Vanguard
$40 Sternguard
$40 Thudd
$35 Bikers
$40 Pod
$12 [avg] x4 characters ..some $10 ..some $15

Spearhead gives you 10% savings..

Gooo... I hope the vets aren't that expensive. I was hoping they'd be priced like the fantasy rare units at $22 per 5 box. Sigh, one can hope.

Oh, I just looked everything up that's in the box and Telion, Chronus, and Sicarius are all Ultramarines, whereas Pedro Kantor is the current Crimson Fists Chapter Master.

You think it is just for 40k stuff or is the Fantasy using them as well?

Hmm, I guess we will see next time they release a cavalry model for Fantasy, I haven't noticed any yet.

Why would fantasy use a round base for cavalry?
