I love that the box even include the core rulebook (because of course I didn't buy it yet, with the index and crappy betadex ^^)!
I'm so buying this box!

your mind

it does suck about those doubled up flagellants.
why not recreate the original from inquisitor in 28mm?
Would have been a home run.

Man, I remember buying the original Tau army box from 3rd ed, and how much stuff you got there for the brand-new army vs this...teaser trailer of a box.

Unlike the peg or ball and socket flying stands, this one is curved,and requires glue to attach. And the attachment surface is small and curved, making it hard to magnetize, plus if magnetized, the model will tend to lean forwsrds.


it's also stupidly fragile. which will make transporting it difficult.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I like the Flagellants. The Repentia remain...underwhelming. The rest is appealing.

Whether I buy the box or not, however, depends entirely on the price. I likely won't even be playing 8th with the army and have no interest in post-Gathering Storm fluff, so the codex is basically worthless to me personally, and I have a suspicion that even beyond that they'll be doing a "premium" price on this to discourage Start Collecting Syndrome where folk buy multiples of the affordable box and a lot less of the individual unit boxes.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Sticking monopose models and books in does seem to be their new direction to stop people buying multiple boxes. To be fair, it’s going to stop me from doing it.

I'm not too worried about the Seraphim. My suppressors(primaris) dont use the stupid flight stands. clear rod into drilled hole in foot.

I am a little concerned on how long until the individual boxes come out. Since it'll be unlikely to double up on the contents and "special" codex and I'm not a dick so 1 it is.

I really hope they go this route with future army refreshes as well.

The simplified builds alone are a nice thing, IMO, for getting things going off the bat.

It's highly worth mentioning that these kinds of models work out well with you attaching them to a piece of scenery or something of that nature. I did that with my Suppressors.

It has all the rules you need to play plus the Adepta Sororitas Codex.

It just doesn't have the entire big rule book in it.

Yeah. So far they’ve done it here, SC Primaris Space Wolves, and SC Thousand Sons. Any I’m not thinking of?

Good spot. Different to what we've seen. The pilot is different as well (different place of arms, a... thing... on his chest), there's a ministorum symbol at the top which isn't on the other one we've seen.

So it seems one is this box, and one is the real kit.

Nothing screams "repent for your sins!" like being hooked up to a big warmachine that sends a direct current of electricity right to your nipples.
I like the new penitent engine. I think it does a good job at capturing the aesthetic of the original model.

I bet you could easily cut the hand off at the wrist, and then drill a pin and just stick the whip hand in when playing/displaying and pull it out when transporting.

Do you mean that it includes all the rules, but none of the lore/art/whatever? Or that it is missing stuff like rules for scenario and similar, which aren't strictly required to play?

What? Both SW and TS were 100% full kits, if anything, every SC (save for the split Sigmar starter and Deathwatch pseudo-SC) is all full option stuff, not single Primaris, Stormcast, GSC, or ghost ETB kit ended up in Start Collecting boxes...

Also true. It's be cool if you could add on missiles to account for the mechaboobs on a male pentitent pilot for full Tranzor action but I don't know if the unit rules support that.

I'm thinking more like Shadowspear, which I'm convinced models from will become SC! Chaos Space Marines and SC! Primaris Vanguard. They've thrown a book into the new CE vs DE box to bump the price on that one.

Worth mentioning that the book in Blood of the Phoenix is no different than what Shadowspear, Dark Imperium, Forgebane, etc have come with. It's supposed to be a small paperback with the fluff of the 'campaign' in the box plus rules for the items in the box.

Yeah. Given how god-awful GW's previous entries into flying bases have been, I've been shocked by how much of a step back this is from the "Ball-and-Socket, but we didn't give you an interference fit so you have to glue/magnet it lololol) design.

I'd even take the old "Tiny stick with the break point designed right in there at the tip so you always always always lose the little bit of plastic in your model when, not if, it breaks" original design over these pieces of horsegak.

what's saddening is, with the redesign, they made a new large-scale model flying base (It's on the Idoneth Turtle, I don't know what else) and it is the single best flying stand GW has ever done. HUGE base for gluing down. Thick, sturdy stand. Big, interference fit ball joint on the end. It's amazing. a simply scaled-down version of that would have been amazing.
