Not that it hasn't been said before, but here are the extracts from my website just to add to the buzz etc

Warriors of Chaos Army Book, RRP: £30.00 - Our Price: £23.99
The new hardback Warriors of Chaos Army Book gives you the complete low-down on the evil Warriors of Chaos, including fantastic backstory, artwork and all the stats you'll need to field your army against all challengers.

Battle Magic: Warriors of Chaos, RRP: £6.50 - Our Price: £5.99

Dragon Ogres, RRP: £35.00 - Our Price: £27.99
The long awaited Chaos Dragon Ogres for Warhammer Fantasy. This multi-part plastic kit contains pieces to build three completely different Dragon Ogres in dynamic poses. The are three different weapon options, including additional hand weapons, each Dragon Ogre has a different "reptilian" body and there is choice for helmeted or bare heads for each. You can also use the elaborate helmet provided in order to denote a unit champion... Shartak.

Chaos Chariot, RRP: £25.00 - Our Price: £19.99
What better way to tear your opponents to shred than leading the charge with a dreaded Chaos Chariot? Not only does this multi-part plastic kit give you everything you need to build one of these violent looking carriages, but there are also plenty of spare parts including two head options for the driver and six for the passenger with some specific to your chosen Chaos God, should you choose to have it as an exalted hero or Chaos Lord. There are also additional weapons and a cloak that can be given to the passenger.

Chaos Forsaken, RRP: £30.00 - Our Price: £23.99
These warriors have devoted themselves to the Chaos Gods and through warfare and Chaos Wastes have ended up mutated and distorted. This multi-part plastic kit contains all sorts of mutations, too many to list! You'll get enough parts to build ten models, thats the easy part - the hard part is deciding which appendages, daemonic heads and the like to have per mini! There are even parts for specific Chaos Gods.

Slaughterbrute, RRP: £50.00 - Our Price: £39.99
This beast could be described as pure muscle, capable of ravishing entire enemy units to shreds the Chaos Slaughterbrute is not to be misunderestimated. Choose from two different heads, meaning more variety if you want two of these beasts in your army. To find out more check out February 2013's copy of White Dwarf (number 398) for the 4-page pull-out photograph of a fantastically painted example.

Chaos Lord, RRP: £15.00 - Our Price: £12.99
You'll need something to lead those vile Chaos armies into battle... Or perhaps you just want an awesome figure to paint? Either way, this Chaos Lord is a fantastic miniature.

Vilitch the Curseling, RRP: £15.00 - Our Price: £12.99
Both a mighty warriors and a deadly wizard, Vilitch is a vile creature literally made up of two brothers fused in the name of Chaos. Vilitch would make an amazing centerpiece to your army.

Throgg, RRP: £36.00 - Our Price: £29.99
Throgg, the King of Trolls is a huge violent looking creature whose weapon alone is taller than a standard Chaos warrior. He carries the Wintertooth Crown, a magical artifact that grants him command over his fellow beasts.

Wow. Good to know. Nope, no way on $85 for the big critter kit. Not spending that much on something just to cut it up for conversions. I would have gladly if it were priced anywhere near realistically.

I'll just get another Reaper Bones Cthulhu instead, when it comes out.

I was mulling over the "slaughterbrute" over the last week or so, checking out the pictures here. I thought it might make for some nice conversion material for my CSM army. I practically spit my coffee all over my iPad when i saw the price though... $85!! Does that come with a car? That's even more than the (now essential, it seems) flyers in 40K. No way in hell I'm paying even the 30% off I can get online for that. Ditto the $25 lord (who also looks cool). The Chariot seems relatively reasonable at $40, and I might get one of those.

Heh. Forsaken = AUD$70. Looking at other "Gold" units, I see Goldswords are AUD$69. I guess we know what the new bracket for these units will be come June.

And I really like the Slaughterthingy and the Tentaclewhatsit. They're nice. My question is though: Can you build the Tentaclesaurus Rex without the big Vortex of Sauron on its back?

Well, I remember saying that this release looked decent, but at those prices, you'd want a little better than decent. Holy crap.

I also love how the model's description on the website just describes what is plainly in the pictures. Dat purple prose.

Ooookay. I realize we like to parse words like nobody's business here on Dakka, but...

Perhaps I should have said artist. The artist for the VC and TK books made them look like Saturday morning cartoons. This looks big, mean, and scary.

I've played GW games for 25 years. The pricing has really gotten out of hand. I actually get $60 for the Dragon Ogres and $40 for a Chariot. But $85 for the big beastie? $58 for Throgg - one dude on a 40x40base! And then the Forsaken are somehow $50 for 10 PLASTIC dudes?

In the words of Yoda, "break me a f***ing give."

GW has always been an expensive hobby. But these recent waves are on a new level.

I'm curious if this business model is reaching its limits.

Also, if you are charging premium prices you better have a premium product. YMMV but the Dark Angels release was "eh" and this one is hit-and-miss. Vilitch is embarrassingly bad. GW needs to confiscate the Bedazzlers and send some people to an anatomy class. Many of these sculpts are all frosting (and skulls!), no cake.

I'll save the rant about prices and how I was interested in starting a WoC army for another thread.
As for the new models themselves;

Slaughterbrute / Mutalith Vortex Beast - I think it has potential, I don't love it from the pics but it is somethign I am definatly interested in getting in my hands and examining.

Dragon Ogres - I get the static poses complaint but compared to the old ones they are brilliant, they are nice monstrous infantry and keep the half ogre half reptile look going.

Chaos Chariot - I have nothing against either of them but nothing about them excites me.

Forsaken - No.

Chaos Lord - I really like him, he is a little static and his armour is kinda bulky but he is a chaos LORD, he actually stands out and will look like a general rather than just another guy in chaos armour who might be an exalted hero or unit champ.

Throgg - I love him, he looks like a troll king and there are some excellent subtle mutations. Shame about the whole finecast thing, in my experience it is always the bigger models that suffer the most.

Vilitch the Curseling - Not liking the looks of the model but a better painted one might change that. The weird shoulder thing makes much more sense when viewed from behind though.

It was my introduction to traditional games, and there was a time when I enjoyed it very much. I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.

These prices are astounding. Yet, I hope the rest of the WFB line is brought into line with them in June's "price adjustment." Why you ask? Pricing like this makes so much more room for competition in the miniature wargaming market. More new projects, more new miniature lines. The only people who don't benefit are those commited to GW-only or who don't know about the ever expanding range of options.

Forgeworld always being profitable and Australia now reaching profitability has shown GW just what they can charge for their miniatures and they will do so. We're headed to plastic at Forge World prices. For some kits and some regions, we're already there.

Are those lizard-taurs new, or something that's been in WFB for a while?

Good faith is a prerequisite for civility. In its absence, "Go Feth Yourself" is not only an acceptable response, it is the only appropriate response and, really, the only possible response. Social media isn’t characterized by rampant incivility because people have bad manners. It looks like that because epidemic bad faith makes nicer manners impossible. So stop arguing in bad faith, or don't be surprised when people tell you to go feth yourself.

Heck they're so old they used to be with the Beasts of Chaos, until the Warriors nicked them.

Todays exchange rates

I can get a gargantuan or a colossal over here from a shop for $120, and there is no way a slaughterbrute is going to be a) 1/3 of an army, or b) that big.

I earn good money. I have limited expenses - hell I have $350 a week in my whatever budget, and GW has made me go "What?" with these prices.

I think I will have a look at the book through less than legal means, and decide if its worth having or not. I suspect it will not, based on Cruddences Tomb Kings.
