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

That's what admech players said and yet the skorpius is only two sprues and probably about as challenging a design as the leman Russ, aka an armored brick.

I'd bet it's two sprues. GW is of the mindset that tanks are $70 now as far as I can tell, especially since the rest are creeping up that way like the Russ. Not happy about it but that's what they're doing

ohh yeah I fully expect part of it is just rising prices. what I'm curious about is the sisters of battle rhino. there's no way they'll be able to charge those kind of prices for it. anything more then 50 USDs is apt to result in people just using the Marine Rhino

There's plenty a model that I've been confused on the price until I saw it in real life or saw it compared to multiple others outside of GW marketing photos (which tend to be either solos which don't often show comparative size all that well or very busy army shots).

The Feral Lizardman dino on Forgeworld looked to be very overly priced until I saw it next to regular models and realised just how massive it was. Sure FW has one scale photo to show, but that hardly shows off the real difference all that well(

The Dread is a beautiful model, and massive.....

But my baby isn't worth what they're asking. Doubly so if it's just to HAVE on the shelf. As a gaming piece, they make her almost unweildly by making her share a base with the Khorne Dragon.

So here's something petty which has been bothering me: why do the new Immolator and Exorcist have tread boards, when there is no handrail along the top of the hull for hangers on to... hang on to?

Note that this greivous error is carried over from the Forge World Deimos hulled vehicles, which didn't copy over the handrail from the original Rhino kit.

Same reason Forge World left it off: it’s too fragile in either plastic or resin to be workable. And they don’t do pre-shaped brass rod.

Yeah, but those have supports every cm minimum. The Rhino rails had a relatively huge expanse of unsupported rail right above the door. I suppose they could redesign them to add more supports but it would look just as wrong as them being missing. Plus they apparently used all the sprue space already…

i really, really want to buy multiple copies of all of these sets and just go on a kitbashing rampage (but who can afford that?). There are so many cool things on each sprue. I bet we'll see some amazing conversions over the next year.

Kind of sad to see that Rhino upgrade sprue. It's been know for a while, of course, but I still think the old Sisters Rhino top was one of the best vehicle mods GW ever came up with because it was just a small alteration but gave the Sisters Rhino its characteristic look. I thought it was so great I even put one on my Vindicator back in 4th ed.

I said it before, but it's a shame that that's gone.

And how are you going to have ghetto sistas if they can't even hang from the side of a moving tank?

You know what's off about the absence of those rails? What's off is that GW passed up an opportunity to make ornate handrails that tie in with the swirly decorations on the tanks. And the thing is, they could even do that. GW already makes weapon hafts like that and it's not something that would be too difficult to implement. They have the technology and skill.

Evidence? For example triumph is 110 in us, 180 in australia and 215 in new zealand.

Would be nice to hear what product is cheaper in US than australia.

So... there's only one Penitent Engine miniature.

What I mean by that is that the sprue only has one Penitent Engine on it. It's not a sprue that makes two. It's three small sprues that make one, and you get that twice.

I'm very surprised by that.

And it still boggles my mind that there isn't a generic Canoness option for the flying pulpit.

At the time that I had done it (last November), I bought a Stormsurge for a friend in Australia while on vacation and saved 15 usd. Though it looks like exchange rates have normalized to about the same price now due to shifts in currency valuation for that particular item.

£35 for the pair is cheaper than I was expecting, for a given meaning of ‘cheap’.

No space on that tiny sprue for a robed engine pilot.

And no crucifix pose.

Just come here to say quickly that the Sisters dice are AMAZING

Pictures don't do them justice. I didn't preorder the dice last week, but they had one set at my local store and I just had to buy them. The centre of each dice is translucent, so holding them up to the light makes them look like pale blue stained glass! :O

Okay, they still effectively cost £1 per individual dice, but still. I like 'em

Well, we know the route they took with defetishising repentia wasn’t as “tattered robes” as some were hoping.

Personally I’d have shot for dressing them up as I might imagine casual clothing for ecclesiarchy staff to look, then adding battle damage and manic berserker elements from there.

*stares at the 80 dollar exorcist*....

yeah, pass. I knew all the extra bits and details would increase it, but i didn't guess that high. Still no fan of that hospitaller base, but it's what you get now, so...

huh. if Junith's kit could also be a generic Canoness with ride she'd be a comparative steal... but I've gone on about that far to long. guess the next thing to look for is the FAQ and the immolator...
