  1. Surprised such a small/weak release after months of no releases. Was hoping they already had some stuff in the channels and could double up on some releases
  2. It is super easy for them to change the point values and warscroll of the bonegrinder to make sense. I bet 300-400 points is about right for the new model.
  3. Don't forget price creep. Katakros is pretty small, only 1 sprue (which includes a base) and is $110 which I believe makes him the most expensive piece of plastic in the range (not counting little character sprues) I would be very suprised if this was less than $150. I only hope that they designed this with the ability to intermix with future sprues/kits. a whole army of the same pose is not fun. (yes they bend at the elbow and twist a little at the waist maybe)
  4. Okay, first of all, I agree that this preview was amazing. I have never played bloodbowl but now I have to get the halfling and snotling team and build a field and everything just to display. The 40k Minis are great, The primaris spindle drones are... expected, and the 40k minis are awesome. And I agree that the giant kit is awesome but... What is everyone talking about?? I think you guys are being fooled by the ol' rotate the model 30 degrees trick. There is only 1 set of legs, and the pose is fixed. The shin bit is built in, all 3 models have the same thing just painted different color. There is 1 optional sandal bit you can put on each foot. The upper torso is the same on all the models, INCLUDING the shoulder. Meaning the upper arms are always at the same angle in relation to the torso, you only get variety at the elbows. Different abdomen bits allow for slightly different poses of upper torso to legs, but most of what people are seeing is just camera trickery. As someone who enjoys building/painting/collecting more than playing, although I was excited about this faction, I can't get more than 1 of these kits. I know organic creatures is a little harder to allow posing than marines and imperial knights, but I Wish GW would have worked a little harder to give us more variety. In the photo, i have circled in green the body parts that are the same on all giants.. as you can see, it's most of the giant (which makes sense, because they only decided to develop one kit, they aren't gonna give a ton of extra plastic (GW very stingy with plastic these days thanks to production bottlenecks)
  5. I really wish they told us BEFORE this preview that they had decided to split the adepticon previews into even more pieces and that today's preview would only get us about halfway through the planned adepticon previews. Was kind of lame to get the news after excitedly waiting for what we were told was going to be the "biggest Warhammer preview ever" that "we'll be back in 2 weeks with the rest!"
  6. Yes, I think Zombies will go away with LoN. Skeletons I could see as being put into a new Vampire / Necromancer faction just because so many more people have those minis, but maybe they won't be a "main"/advertised unit in that faction, or maybe they'll get a new aosified kit. >>There’s just so many miniatures right now linked to this uneasy balance... Honestly not that many good/modern ones. I know it hurts to hear that if it's the stuff in your collection, but they can't support an infinitely growing model range, as new stuff comes, old stuff must go. Look to Aelves / Free Cities / Greenskinz for the type of cuts you can expect to come soon for death. I think LoN is going to exist in AoS 3.0 with no new stuff, maybe not even a battletome (GHB updates to the current tome, like Seraphon had?). Just to hold over while they salvage the rest of the stuff they want to salvage (this does not include zombies).
  7. Chaos is in a relatively good spot. Everyone has a home. Skaven needs new models pretty badly and so do a few other armies, But there aren't really any factions out there in the lore that aren't represented in the game and there are no models really homeless, and there are no big soupy tomes like LoN or Freecities. Death on the other hand, you can really easily see what they are doing. They threw everything (besides FEC) into LoN. Then they did Nighthaunt, pulling out anything relevant. Then they did Bonereapers, again pulling out anything relevant. Now there's only a few good plastic kits not in one of those 3 specialized armies (ghouls, ghosts, bone constructs/fancy skeletons), and they are pretty much all Vampires/Necromancers. Besides miniatures, this is also what is really missing from the game if you look at the lore. So, this is why most people suspect a vampire army coming. Not necessarily imminently, but maybe in 2-3 years. Legions of Nagash was a stop gap, but will eventually go away (too hard to balance the game with this giant book, especially since many units are also in other books) I would say likelyhood of release of speculated armies: Sons of Behemat > Malerion Aelves > Vampires > Grotbag Skuttlers. I don't think that is necessarily the order we would see them in, but the likelyhood that we will see them at all over the next 2-3 years.
  8. Thats the imperial knight model, and it was very very successful. Started out as just a 1 kit army. That same kit was the foundation for 2 other kit variants for 7 different units..then they added a smaller model (which we already have with the current gargant!) And eventually added 2 more new kits (with a common sprue). The tricky thing is that those are robots.. it's fairly easy to pose them in a lot of different ways. For an organic crearure, how do you enable different poses without a lot of wasted bits? GW has already moved almost completely away from posability with most of their range, which has caused me to turn to a "only 1 of each kit" rule (which means my armies are not very good!) Because especially for gargants, I will not pay for or field a force where 2 Giants have the same pose.
  9. annnnnd Amazon is now sold out of plastic Dinosaurs for reasons that few understand.
  10. Not really a good time for Nurgle jokes bro!
  11. 2" helps a ton. Why dont you just put in some work.. put some models on the table and give us some numbers
  12. It completely depends on how much you value your time, and how you plan to sell the models. You can expect that the ebay value of all these models will go down due to other people parting out boxes. For example, today 3x terradon riders are $51 USD on ebay, but I expect that will go down to like $30 over time. Ebay/Paypal take ~13%, shipping costs ~$4 if you're thrifty and ship in an envelope. The hero will be sold off by anyone that gets more than 1 box, or anyone that already had that hero when they bought the box. 12 skinks is not worth your time. You're talking $14.88 retail worth of skinks, lower the price to sell on ebay, fees, shipping. You'll make like $5 If you are making your purchase next week and don't mind the work, yes buy the box and try and dump the rest quickly (perhaps even all together) because all of this stuff is low/out of stock individually, including the Bastilladon you want. In a month or two, I don't think it will be worth it.
  13. You're limited when the model must be ETB and all models must fit on 2 hero sized sprues.
  14. Welp. the passage of time has not dulled my disgust for that Teclis model. That face! That pose! Those horn tassels! I wonder if the painting team drew straws to determine who had to paint it. I hope it gets really good rules though and we see a lot of brilliant conversions.
  15. What would make you ask? It's still for sale. . It is still legal because it still has points and the seraphon keyword. GW battletomes do not touch on forgeworld models. The warscroll or points probably need updating but I really doubt it is going anywhere .It'd be a big slap in the face Just keep it on the slightly unplayable side and people will be happy.
