Are those not hatches top right and bottom left of the roof?

I’ve not seen the kit in person, so not a snarky question.\



Seems those aren’t, but there is a hatch on the small one - so likely one on the big one.

No; one hatch per roof. It’s the circular one on the right of your picture. It does have matching detailing on the inside with slots to install a ladder piece so that you can actually use it though.

Im curious to see the price on these individual kits.

£30 for the small and £40 for the double one I bet.

I think the Doc is referring to the image of the painted double hab, though I don't know where the sprue pic comes into play if that's the case.

Having said that, there is at least one hatch visible on the roof of the double/expanded hab, in about the same position as the one on the single hab module roof.

Which would make sense since the double is almost certainly a single with just one new sprue that extends the middle.

Yeah I looked quite closely but unless there is a hatch hidden behind the water tank, there’s only one on that roof. Having said that, you can assemble the roof parts to have one lid with two doors, if you are prepared to accept having one with no doors. So you could have a large hab (or an extra-large; I think the splitting of the ‘feet’ may be more cunning than it seemed at first) with two roof accesses if you wanted.

Hmmm the $110/€85 is an exchange rate price rise as it used to be £65 was €80/$95

I really like the look of the habitats, but the price does raise an eyebrow, especially if one were looking to create a larger outpost with walkways linking multiple units together. Then again, as always there's options out there for folks unafraid to build their own, and the GW designs do serve as fine inspiration for such.

At least two of the “tips” could have been replaced by page references for the assembly guide and lost nothing though, so maybe they are going to reissue them but with actual content?

GW has always been 'difficult' about members of staff posting hobby stuff on their social media (even gw related hobby stuff)...

i've followed a couple of folk who now have staff roles in Nottingham and seen them prune a lot of the stuff they used to have up before they were hired, and not post in any detail even about the stuff they're directly involved in, and in one case actually hired to promote

so it wouldn't surprise me is his posts came to the official notice of head office and he's been told to stop (stupid though that would be)

That's like double the price per sprue compared to what Sector Machanicus is priced even in individual piece boxes.

Given how incredibly well designed the scenery is for cross compatibility, I’m utterly baffled, and will always be utterly baffled, that GW don’t put Owen’s stuff on their own websites.

I mean…..why?

Yep, we saw it with the new 40k terrain. Around £15-20 per sprue. These new Necro habs at £47.50 look to give you 3 big sprues. ~£16 a sprue, whereas before it was typically under £10 for sector mechanicus and imperialis. Its a hefty rise to put terrain on a equivalent, or nearer, cost for an amount of plastic.

GW unit boxes are basically a big sprue folded in half to fit, in 40k equivalent a Primaris marine box is £36 for 4 'half' sprues, (£18 per big sprue). For Necromunda gangs a box is £28 for 2 half sprues (1 big sprue). But at least with gangs you only need 1/2 boxes.

I certainly wont be going full into new terrain now as i have enough older stuff. Mechanicus stuff felt cheap and I didnt mind, ZM stuff didnt stretch as far and started to get pricey quick. Ash wastes is going to be as expensive for an 'enough to be interesting but not bland' table. A tough position for new players tho. It used to be the saying that terrain was a 3rd army on the table, it used to be affordable but really is the case now if army OR terrain for majority of folks.

There is some level of ability to enforce use of GW models in an army. There is absolutely no method of enforcement for scenery, and while the GW stuff is nice, is it THAT nice, compared to spending an our or so drybrushing some kind of electrical fitting with gubbinz glued to it?

Didn't GW try to pull some "each participant must bring half a table's worth of GW terrain to 40k tournaments" gak in the 9th edition rulebook? Luckily it was launched into the middle of lockdown so it never got off the ground?

I can't say I am comfortable with Ash Wastes boxed set and individual scenery prices. I guess I can afford to skip them for now and invest funds into Horus Heresy instead. Especially as I have a good amount of Zone Mortalis yet unbuilt.

Making sensible hobby related decisions is not something I am familiar with. I guess that is the main reason why I am feeling uncomfortable.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.
