Welp, I pretty much need all of these. They look absolutely spectacular, and suit some plans I have down to a 'T'.

Wow.. absolutely awesome !

One of the coolest looking releases I've seen in some time.

How many years has it been since there was a proper bike model released? I bet John Blanche has been doing backflips.

Weren't there rumors about these bikes being 5 to a box with the quad as part of the kit? They'll probably have neophytes stats, meaning you'll need lots of them.

So.. $50 per box sounds about right.

Surely $65-$75 would be a likely price range.
All marine bike squadrons including chaos boxes (except the DA ones) cost $40 for 3 bikes.
Necron bikes and Eldar windriders are $41.25 (also same price for ork biker trio) and $41, respectively for 3 bikes.

If they come out with a box of 5 bikes and Quad which will likely cost less than 125pts for a unit of exactly that for $75 they'd be shooting themselves in the foot.

I agree but I don't think $50/box is realistic based on their recent pricing maneuvers.

My money is on 3 bikes for 40 but I could see it for 41 as well. I think if it is 5 plus a quad we are looking at the 65+ range.

Orks in general are the least cost effective army to collect. Don't Boyz more or less cost to same amount in points as dollars?

While a full ork army is pretty pricey, Boyz are 7 points each and 11 for $29, so no.

The Mek Gunz are a crazily priced kit. $46 for a single gun and 5 grots is just way out of line, even for GWs weirdest prices.

Hopefully we should learn more about the bikes this weekend.

That wouldn't work.... those colour names are vaguely descriptive. They would have to be released as 'Shroud of Wurgle' and '1468'.

Imperial Guard is also not very friendly on the wallet. $24 for 40 points of infantry. If you want to put heavy weapons in there or special weapons, you're getting extremely close to that $1 per point rate.

Death Korp of Krieg is probably the most expensive... I wouldn't be shocked if it was significantly more than $1 per point.

He's a biker - behind the original 'Vincent Black Shadow' miniature back in Rogue Trader days, I believe.

I’m also very excited to see what gets previewed tomorrow. The bikers look great, and having female hybrids is awesome!

I know I keep bringing it up, but I REALLY hope they do a limo!

I like the futuristic blue collar aethstetic they’ve created with the neophytes. And the bikers, and masked gunman have an almost distopian/western feel to them, which is cool as well. But I hope GW doesn’t forget that the patriarch and his inner circle are classically portrayed as DECADENT. The limos exemplify this, but the patriarch was always shown as overweight & opulent sitting in his throne & such.

Spoiler:



This picture is so INSANE, I love it!


Of course, back then, the genestealers were always paired with chaos cultists, since apparently they all had to work together to fight the imperium.

And tyranids had squigs...

A hope we don't see a limo, personally. The current GSC theme seems to very much be a subterranean mining colony, waiting for their moment to rebel.

I like all the grungy suits and mining equipment, feels more realistic and less silly.

Blood Angels, Custodes, Tzeentch, Alpha Legion, Astra Militarum, Deathwatch, Thousand Sons, Imperial Knights, Tau.
