So, I want the Chaos War Queen for D&D, the "Ghost" for both D&D and because I'm being reeeaaally tempted to start Death and the Goblin for my Ironjawz.

Looking forward to the AUD$50-$60 price tag on that ghost. The days of the $16 Wraith have long since passed us.

Also, I know it was revealed a week or so ago, but is that Mushroom Goblin not the epitome of Flanderisation? Yikes...

£20 minimum as your paying for the model, the additional rules and the special malign portents box.

Last week's Lego head stormcast was £20 So there's your minimum but I could see them pricing them at primaris level £22.50, however these are super special characters so £25 is possible that way any mug..erm I mean customer who has to have all 4 is paying £100 for what is in total maybe half a sprue or 1 sprue?

It looks like the new heroes are all going to be snap- fit like the Mozgus- headed Stormcast of Charging +3. Interesting choice.

I wonder if this will be a thing for heroes going forward. If only their prices reflected being these easier build, no glue needed type kits.

They just released Lego head for £20 last week as such taking this into account with other boxed hero's in 40k and AoS you can reasonably extrapolate a potential price for a similar product.

Ahhh but we're in the blind faith and denial stage cool

By all means, when the price is released, if it's too much, say. But complaining before we even know the price is such a waste of effort.

Literally any discussion of any kind prior to concrete, official information from the company is "wasted effort" in an absolute sense, so if that's your standard why come to a discussion forum with the express purpose of discussing rumours about and speculating on unreleased products?

Or is this just yet another example of double-standards from the Positivity Police, who will happily sit and spin speculative yarns all the live long day so long as they're utterly uncritical and take no account of previous patterns of releases and behaviour?

So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

I'm curious as to whether they will be seperate releases or part of a set.

It's sort-of Flanderised, but then all of AoS has been about making individual factions more distinct. He also seems to represent the extreme outlying element rather than the norm, after all if even orcs are following a goblin that goblin must be a pretty big deal.

Still trying to be more polite. If you catch me being toxic please call me on it.

The tactical rubble is what makes me think that.

Look at the death model and the tactical debris that's stationed in front of the completed model. If you look closely at the sprue, that part's got a plug on the bottom to fill in the pre-cut hole on the base. Those pre drilled holes on the bases only show up on the easy to build kits or starter box figures.

The new lord celestant with the meaty meat head was snap fit as well, despite his traditional clamshell hero (over) pricing.


Still cool kits. Just wish the pricing was a bit fairer to reflect the difficulty.

People are similarly uninterested in those who imply the reverse.

Also, lol at the idea only people who can't afford something can think the value proposition is insufficient to justify the price, but that's a common mistake among the sort of people who believe slighting someone's income is a devastating put-down.

Ok well to the first gallant gentleman I would point out that nowhere did I complain about the price just gave my opinion on what it would be when someone asked.

To the 2nd gallant gentleman who mentioned being skint?
I know it's the internet and all. But at a guess I most likely own models older than you and have more toy soldiers in my backlog than you will likely own in your life.

That said if they do come in at £25.00 then you would have to be flying rodent gak crazy to buy them hell you got a box of Goldswords for that
gak that would put them at the same price as Kingdom Death's Ltd edition stuff and that actually has a resale value.

Seriously going to get band because of the God damn cult of AoS again there worse than scientology followers.

Although between the engineers tabard and the herald's helmet & sword I'm really tempted to get both anyway and kitbash a knight-questor for the realm of death. (Especially if another ST comes out)
