It's nice for those who wanted to buy a considerable lot from the GW store anyway... so after a few years they can sell this model for at least the price of a standard kit .

Well, whilst I doubt it’ll cause a high number of folks to spend previously unplanned cash, I can’t see it actively dissuading anyone from spending previously planned cash?

If nothing else, it might persuade people to wait and stack up items for an order...which would be a Good Thing right now as GW's warehouse seems to be having issues here in the US.

Retailers are seemingly still getting product in a reasonable timeframe but man, four weeks for an in-stock air paint to ship is a Bit Much!

He'd make a great Deathwatch model, but at $240 buy in? He's basically costing $35 since you can easily get 15% off online on a regular basis.
If I was buying the Templar box (probably not in the window?), or maybe the sisters kill team box? Otherwise, not sure what's on my shopping list for access to such a model since I just bought Mortarion last week (at 20% off).

I wish I knew people that spent a ton of Warhammer, but didn't care for primaris. I'd probably be willing to donate $100, just for the model.

I would have considered this if I could get it at my local Warhammer store.

The last couple of orders I placed on the GW webstore took months to receive. In fact, I recently had an order show up that I had placed in July 2020. Yes, it took over one whole year for them to send me my stuff.

Needless to say, I am currently avoiding the webstore entirely. Maybe once the world isn't so fethed up by the pandemic I can start ordering again.

I usually buy from Element, where my basket comes to £136.20, compared to £156.00 for my qualifying spend. So for me, on that discount, and forgoing Element’s crystals it works out pretty much the same.

Of course, once we move out of GBP prices, everything goes well wonky.

GWOZ wants us to spend the equivalent of £222.

See I thought maybe I could pick up a Stompa from GW. I want to cut one to ribbons to use as Ork terrain, it's Direct Only so the best I can get elsewhere is a 5% discount, and shipping costs will eat most of that discount if I just purchase the Stompa on its own, plus GW would do free shipping, so overall it would work out well.

But the Stompa is AUD$165. GWOZ says I need to spend FOUR-HUNDRED-AND-TWENTY DOLLERY-DOOS for their "free" Marine.

No.

Well, the Loot Group price is £21, as set by me because it’s the same price as other Commemorative Series Models.

How many might be offered, I don’t know.


I don't know how the loot group works but I'd definitely pay that for one.

See my sig, join up. Just….remember to answer the Admin Questions, because a worrying number of people think not answering them in the key to entry!

But as I said, I cannot guarantee availability of this particular model. It’s a hefty barrier price, like the Store Opening Terminator Chaplain. But, if you don’t ask, you definitely don’t get!

There’s a thread in the group for it already.

lmao, everyone currently shouting about it being another marine would instead be complaining that Tyranid players had to spend £150 to get their first new model in ages

Personally I wouldn't buy either at this price, but at least it's a better offer than those collectible coins

I have a theory that all limited models are Marines because they're so blatantly easy to make, just get the same CAD file as 90% Marines, give them a premade Bolter or a premade Chainsword or whatever, then you just pose them and voila!

Let's see: taking into account you can buy at 15% off easily in many stores, the "free" mini would amount to... 22,5 pounds.


That's why this is best when you buy webstore items you don't get discount. But for me now nothing there atm at sufficient amount that interests(even with finland getting one at 100e it seems)

We’re FB only. I did discuss it with the Mods, but it’s not suited to Dakka. Some Loot Runs see me spending literally thousands of pounds of other people’s money, so I very much understand it being a pain for them if anything goes wrong.

Even with the loot group, I'm not holding my breath. This one is going to be hard for looters to get their hands on and there's already a long queue.

My biggest fear (which goes for any model I spend too much for on ebay) is that GW will relent, release it for a lower price, and I'll feel like a bigger sucker than I already would be for buying it at that price

I think they are 'pulling the piss' (slang for: it means they are joking...)

There is no way that you have to spend $420 AU to get this model, which you could kit bash better from kits available (or even do the exact model...) (it says spend 150 pounds and in AUD is $285, but the website says spend $420...either way, I hate primaris anyway so no incentive for me (prefer first born especially with Deathwatch, are way better))

Nice Model, would have considered it if it was £100 in value potentially.

Would be nice if they did this sort of thing more often with a variety of models to choose from (Eldar Exarch, Ork Knob), I may actually purchase from GW then - if it was a £100 buy in that is.

The asking price to get it included is just too high for a samey feeling model like that.

I might have considered spending between 50-100€, but 195€ is insane.

I think it's weird that the damage on his armour seems more consistent with laser fire than the effects of gauss weaponry.

The base would be cool for a res-orbing Lord though.

Even calling it a kit bash is a stretch. The parts for that guy are available in any Assault Intercessor kit... it'd only be a kitbash if you wanted the necron bits on his base.

I personally can confirm that Mad Doc's Loot Group will get at least 1 for Stateside shipping. Stay tuned.

Be careful what you joke about.

Exclusives have somewhat diversified of late.

Without intended irony or sarcasm? In a Marine heavy environment, we now have two Catachans, two Necrons, a bunch of Spoopy Ghosts, a Noise Marine, and multiple Orks & Grots.
