I don't like the sound of this new set of rules. The models are all pretty good (With the exception of the Manticore and that dreadful Lammasu), so I'll probably be picking up some of them for fun.

Speaking of which, did they seriously just make Finecast versions of the old crappy models? The Lammasu is especially terrible.

How insulting is the advance order: "We shortened the time between advance order and the date it is available, so you can get it faster." No...it's more like "We don't want people knowing about it until the last minute, but our customers are too stupid to see that." Way to fail GW...despite how awesome the models look...way to fail

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Why isn't more being made of these single-sprue plastic characters?

I tried to order the magic cards but got a "discontinued" message when I tried to pay. Are they sold out or is the stuff not actually ready yet?

EDIT: NM, it seems like it was just a glitch or something.

-> plastic
-> no additional bits or interchangeable heads.

Metal models often don't have interchangeable bits. These aren't kits, these are just frames. I think that this should be how they do all character models from now on.

Ya what wasted opportunity. If they done it to have more options like avatar of war, im sure people will buy alot more.

Yeah there's plenty of room on all of those wizard sprues for a variant head or two and maybe a weapon.

To sell more models.

Its for their summer campaign. And from what I gather it's as much about the monsters as it is about magic. Also magic doesn't need much in the way of new models so it's relatively cheap. As for the models, I'm impressed that the plastic sorcerers have moulded bases it's a great idea for newer hobbyists who might be a bit daunted by scenic bases.

Aye, looking at the frames that was the part that was most impressive to me, too.

Luna does have a bit of a point regarding alt heads, HBMC - a helm for the Chaos sorcerer with the Tzeentch symbol on, for instance, would've been nice.

Overall, though, nice frames.

Terrible looking monster, it doesn't fit together at all. I wonder if maelstrom will sell more of their terrifyingly expensive but beautiful chimera and also wonder if Raging Heroes will pull off another manticore coup and bring out a good looking chimera of their own.

H.B.M.C. wrote:Why isn't more being made of these single-sprue plastic characters?


Indeed, not only a lovely looking model but single sprue, total triumph! Well done Mr Nelson (who I already have big mancrush on for making orks great!).

At least the heads on the Chaos sorcerers & Necromancer aren't fixed, so head swaps will be really straight forward.

I like the models, but i despise the idea behind Storm of Magic...

Dwarves can now field Dark Elf Hydras
The Empire can now field Daemon BloodCrushers of Khorne
Skaven can field Griffons and Great Eagles??

Its just gotten to the point here where you can buy bits and bobs from every army, and then play a storm of magic game and use 'em all!

Even the chaos character had to be chained to that horrible manticore.

I'm picking some of these up, but a lot less than I expected.

The white dwarf is leaving me with a weird impression this month, why is everything so colorful? The terrain and all the monsters are all painted in such bright colors.

Skittles! Paint the rainbow.

Indeed, this release has produced the odd good model (namely the single plastic characters, the DE dragon and some of the scenery), but the rules system is just "Let's throw eveything onto the table and blow it up!"

I would have liked something more refined, but there you go.
