Last week's Tzaangors Pre-Orders had me in a bliss the likes you've never seen before, but I've come off that high when I got to think about what I was going to purchase:
Kairic Acolytes at 20 for $50. Still a better ppm than 10 for $35, but this has been a climbing trend. See Plague Monks and Crypt Ghouls, this is quite a bit of an upward trend.
Ogroid Thaumaturge at $41, Curseling at $25, Gaunt Summoner at $25. (Don't let them know the Magister is still at $15) Clampacks have had a significant price increases for a while and considering how often the secondary market has them for cheap because they're frequent in hero packs, I don't understand the pricing structure here. The Ogroid reeks of the awful Tyranid pricing structure model (like $90 for two Carnifexes)
My *bleep*ing favorite of all of the bad choices, the Tzaangor Shaman on Disc. A stand alone that goes for the same price as a set of three nearly identical models that don't take that much imagination to convert. Why? Just Why?
The Good (EVERYONE SHUT UP! I SWEAR, I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN IF YOU TELL THEM AND THE PRICES GO UP!!!):
Tzaangor at 10 for $40. It's not great for only 10 models, but it's a $5 decrease from the 40K version and a $1.25 decrease from the old Bestigors. So... Improvement?
Tzaangor Skyfires/Enlightened Box at 3 for $35. I celebrated so loudly my neighbors came to check on me. Usually boxes of three of models of this size go for $50-$60 or so (see Demigryphs, Bloodcrushers, Stormfiends, Vargheist/Crypt Horrors, Trolls), and this comes in at almost half of that.
I don't know what GW is thinking with their pricing structure here, but I think Marketing has been having a few too many again. Cheers!
