buying the exorcists I need's gonna def set the ole wallet back I was hoping they'd be cheaper, but I expected these prices TBH.

what I'm REALLY curious about is the cost of the SOB Rhino. if they jack it up too much higher then the standard rhino people just won't bother

Those are some high prices £50 for the exocist. I think it is me on the end of the gun with prices like that. Others seem OK.

Exorcist seems £10 overpriced at the very least. £50 sounds really steep for what generally is seem as a bolt-on part of a rhino. Then again perhaps there's far more bulk and features to it that the real kit will make far more apparent and worth that high price tag.

Of course in contrast the Penitent engines are really quite good value. Perhaps GW is doing some crafty pricing and upping one model so they can lower another whilst drawing similar profits from sales from the range as a whole.

Penny engines are remarkably reasonable price - I was expecting about that price for one tbh!

Is anyone else worried about the lack of multipose they may have though?

Every pic I've seen of them seems to have the exact same leg pose - only difference being left/right swap
and the arms look like they may be the same too...

e.g. compare the legs here:

my guess is that the legs will be designed, like some of the other walker kits, so that you can glue them on eaither side and then add a cover.

40 bucks? the Marine Rhino isn't even 40 buck. I'm not arguing the exorcist isn't kinda pricey. but expecting it to be cheaper then the old rhino kit is well...yeah

It’s expensive, and it is basically just a different top to a Rhino - but the Rhino it’s bolted on to is a whole new one (Deimos pattern instead of Mars pattern). It doesn’t use the existing Rhino parts at all.

But yeah. £40 would have been a lot more palatable.

Thanks to mandatory $15/hour min. wage in lots of states in the US more people should be able to afford Exorcists.

I remember $15 rhino's in the 90's but then again min. wage was like 4.25/hour so I'd say at least in the US the wage increase over the years for the average person still outpaces GW's price increases.

But yeah, plastic crack is expensive and it'll never get cheaper unfortunately.

Ah. Ahahahahah. AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

You all think those prices are steep?

A Squad of the new sisters costs 円8300 here. That's less than 2 pounds shy of 60 quid. For 10 miniatures. Utterly unjustifiable, especially when you can - in the same store, or if not, neighborhood, walk a few meters and grab a HUGE mastergrade gundam for less.

I've got no clue what game GW are playing out here, but it's so eye-wateringly daft that I'm really tempted to contact their customer services, just to check - like, is this intentional? Are they running off an out-dated currency converter? Bonkers. I was hoping I might get to pick up some sisters, the heavy weapons box and maybe a cannoness and a sister superior with this release as a treat sometime, but holy gak, are these prices so beyond worth it. Never mind the big shiny things coming out next week. Mental.

Okay there's just no way I'm paying that much for the Hospitaller. That's ridiculous, I could buy an entire second Junith for almost the same price.


Conversions, conversions, conversions. Sisters is going to be one of the easiest armies to convert Canonesses, Hospitaliers and Imagifers and Dialogus, because you can start with any base Sister (preferably a squad leader, but there's room for others) and a bit of blinging up. Extra Simacrulum bearer arms become Imagifers.

GW character prices are mental and I encourage everyone to convert whenever and however they can.

I am looking at the blackstone fortress kit for a couple of models... 125euros for a missionary and a couple others... so 30euros each plus a game. And those models are fantastic. I know, insane.. but gw pricing for characters in plastic is insanier

why not just buy them separately on ebay or facebook? or is it just so you have something to complain about?

Also, I'm glad I own four exorcists already. I knew the new plastic one was going to be way to expensive when I saw it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was webstore exclusive as well so you can't get them cheaper on third party sites.

I feel like I know what answer I'll get. I don't have enough faith in GW for this to not be deliberate.

Maybe just for giggles GW will price the tardy Canoness at like £40

They know everyone will have already committed to buying up the rest of their armies, therefore they NEED the Canoness.

I should stop giving them ideas I guess...

Bad model to do it with. The metal canoness is still a very good sculpt, comes with most available equipment options, and can be gotten for about 20USD (for now). Imagifier would be better.

maybe but keep in mind if we complain but buy a full sisters army anyway...

truthfully re the exorcistonist I suspect once we see the sprue it'll at least make it make a bit more sense. I mean there's a LOT of build up on the top. this isn't say.. A predator with a flur de lys where it'd be a rhino with a ssimple turrent, there's a lot built on up top
