Your math is - theoretically, as we haven't seen the prices on the GW site yet - correct for your currency. People quoting 127% were correct for their currency of choice.

The problem we have is that your initial statement didn't make it explicitly clear which currency was being referred to, hence the confusion.

I have re-read this thread twice now and I still don't find any indication where the AUD prices are coming from that HBMC is referring to... They are certainly not shown in this thread...

It's a case of equivalencies.

Oz prices don't get leaked. We get UK, US and a lot of the time EU and CAD prices. So you take the UK price, look up something that costs the same, then look at what that costs in Oz and work out what the likely price of the new object is.

I'm feeling a lot more sympathy for you Aussies and the non-consistent exchange rates. Somehow the GBP 27.50 Rhino is AUD$55 while the GBP 27.50 Judith Eurita is AUD$77. Given that the GBP 35 Battle Sister Box is AUD$98, you can validity expect the Soroitas Rhino to be AUD$98. One must wonder why they jack up the price of new kits to Oz but not the old ones?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

I have a dumb question - is the Seraphim set 5 or 10 models?

I was assuming 5, but the GW article about the set shows a photo of 10 models.

Thanks - I figured it would be the same as Retributors, given the price.

5 models that can be built each two ways.. so you get loads of extra bits

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

Order of St Ursula (Sisters of Battle): W-2, L-1, T-1
Get of Freki (Space Wolves): W-3, L-1, T-1
Hive Fleet Portentosa (Nids/Stealers): W-6, L-4, T-0

the jump packs are probably 2 piece and you only get 5 of each shell(sera&zera) & 5 of the part that attaches to torso.

I am honestly surprised that those jump packs aren't a main body and half-a-dozen fiddly little parts. That's almost unprecedented for recent GW models.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Sadly, I don’t think you’re wrong. Those shield shaped pieces with the purity seals appear to be the backs of the jump packs. You get 5.

GWNZ webstore. Everything's up there now.

And in Oz in about 29 minutes (should be midday, but GW doesn't take DLS into account).

Man, not a single of the new sisters releases has been under £30 out here. That new rhino works out at well over £60. I think I'm out fellas. No more GW for me, this gak is ridiculous. I love GW, and I love SoB especially, but there's no way I can justify those prices.

Sweet, so there are ten packs. I can replace the regular jump packs from my limited set custom Zephyrim with the new ornate style ones, and then use the original packs on something else

I think I'll be getting 3 of the Seraphim set, 2 Dialogus, 1 Canoness and 1 Imagifier.

Still can't stand those Repentia, plus I have far, FAR too many SoB vehicles already to justify purchasing any new ones.

Not really interested in the Sanctum, but would buy the statue part of it if someone splits the set into pieces.


EDIT: Hmm - so it's possible to buy two Seraphim sets plus one set of 10 battle sisters, and voila you have 10 Seraphim AND 10 converted Zephyrim, without having to buy 4 boxes. All you need is to engineer some flight stands.

I’ll repeat this because everyone seems to have missed it. There are not 10 full jump packs. There is a shield shaped plate which forms the back of the jump pack, which you only get 5 of.

If you look at the top sprue you can clearly see that the Zephyrim jump pack has a larger "wingspan" than the Seraphim pack. That's interesting.

I can definitely see converting regular sisters into Seraphim, but I don't think you want to use flight bases unless you're planning to modify the legs into flying poses. Just have them standing on the ground. It'll be fine.

Oh, I see. Well, it probably won't be too hard to sculpt a replacement from greenstuff, it doesn't look like a very complicated piece (if I'm looking at the right one).

You would also need to find or sculpt the missing part of 5 of those jump packs.

Ok, ok, jump packs, very cool - but you get eighteen Eviscerators per box of Repentia?!

I need to build a crazy Redemptionist/Cawdor/Inquisitorial retinue now. Eviscerators...Eviscerators everywhere.

That’s excellent. It strongly suggests two different ways to build each sister.

"The kit builds nine Repentia armed with penitent eviscerators. Each body has a choice of two sets of arms for added variety."

That's why I counted them in the first place. I was thinking that they'd have different arm pairs fitting a single Eviscerator or that two bodies share two sets of arms that you could chose from, but the sprue seemed packed. And it turns out the sculptor did actually do two sets of arms with an Eviscerator each. The brilliant madman (madwoman?)

I'm on my phone on a train, so I can only really see the painted heads. But those are mostly excellent already.

So the Repentia are pretty awesome once you do somethung about their gym clothes, but I can sculpt, thankfully. And 9 leftover Eviscerators makes the set a decent purchase when you take into account how much those would cost as (third) party bits.
