Sounds like they're trying to get rid of some stock they found...

180+ comments and nobody appears to be mentioning the price hike on the FB announcement.

Don't know if that means there really are a lot of people ignorant of it, that don't care about it or there's some judicious comment pruning happening.

As usual, selling out doesn't mean much without knowing the numbers available in the first place.


That is odd!

What was the price hike announced in the...announcement?

Don't be daft Alph! GW don't announce price rises, they just sneak them in when nobodys paying attention!

But several people seem to have commented that they've ordered it, so clearly don't know or care how much it's gone up and have no issue with the new price regardless.

Ha!

You do bring up another good point though - we never really know how many units of (x) were available for sale, so something 'selling out' is fairly meaningless, beyond the fact that there aren't any more to buy...

Whales will buy anything. I can't even get mad at GW for cranking up the prices so much anymore. It seems like they could sell a Primaris Lieutenant for £150 smeared toxic waste and it would make them tens of thousands.

Holy crap it is.

Honestly I love seeing more cross-pollination between Chaos > Imperial stuff like this; like how they revamped obliterators to look more like corrupted centurion suits. I prefer when Chaos gets stuff that looks like degraded or debased loyalist tech rather than wholly new creations like much of their daemon engines.

I quite like that aspect of the design. Silly looking, but at least it shows where the crawler has come from!

It'll make some great conversion fodder for 40k Death Guard players as well.

I've long found Forgeworld to be a bastion of "good" design with regard to tanks and armored vehicles...but they've been getting worse over the past year or two. Shame. That thing is fething heinous.

So when Mortarion 'locked himself away in the smog-wreathed spires of the Black Manse, obsessing endlessly over his foul brainchild, turning all of his remarkable intellect to the challenge', he was just copying an existing design. Noice.

Makes sense, can’t expect primarchs to actually be good at everything, especially the way their personalities and decision making skills are written.

He tried his best, and his best was “that one grav-mortar tank but with plagues instead and I’ll make it a daemon engine so that it’ll shoot less accurately”.

You could say the same thing about Cawl taking like 10k years to make slightly chonkier marines with his super-brain, really.

Not just his super brain but the super illegal/heretical AI super brain he made.

I was sort of including all of that under one umbrella seeing as his brain is essentially a PC with swappable drives at this point.

I'd love to see in the fluff that Mortar ion and maybe the Lion collaborated on this and the Sabre design, like how Guilliman and Ferrus designed the Sicaran. And then Morty locked himself away later to improve it even further, maybe how to subjugate daemon s into the design.

I’d honestly accept a price rise if they brought back the chaos dwarf skullcracker.
Can’t find them anywhere for sale.

I like it. Less of a tank and more of an artillery tractor. If they make one with the Hellex plasma mortar from the thanatar, I'll probably grab it.

The squad though, meh. Plasma sprayers is an ok idea, but the name and the sculpts are nothing exciting. Especially another I-something-er to add to the jumble. Tactical, assault, devastator, sternguard, vanguard are all distinct and easy to tell apart, even if the names are just their roles. Most primaris squad names, and now this squad are just letter swaps of the same word essentially.

Looking at the kit, honestly it would be easy to make it entirely plastic. Just an upgrade sprue with 6 heads, 6 shoulder pads, 5 guns (just the gun, not the arms) and some torso fronts, compatible with the mk III plastic kit.

Some other specialist units could be done the same way. Alpha legion headhunters, templar brethren, grey slayers all would be easily done with upgrade sprues. Actually they already are just upgrade kits, but in resin.

I just built my first PBC, its effing tiny. Same footprint as a rhino more or less, with a lower profile.

If this tank is based on the sicaran chassis, its half again as big as the PBC at least.

Otherwise yeah, real similar outline.

I like it when they make things that give us hints of the origin of things we know from 40k.

This being somewhat of a precursor to the Crawler is very cool.

The platoon thing for the Kriegers is 500 canadian dollars, and it's sold out atm on the FW store.

there's less than 50 models, it's like $10 per Guardsman... and they are guardsman, they aren't even 10ppm!
