How do!

Warhammer via email wrote:To celebrate our one millionth online customer we're adding this exclusive Primaris Sergeant Castus to single orders of more than £150* placed between 12:00pm (BST) on Friday the 24th of September 2021 and 11:59pm (BST) on the 28th of October 2021.

Stood triumphant atop a heap of defeated Necron foes – not unlike a Sergeant from a certain Warhammer 40,000 trailer – this exclusive miniature is not available by any other means, and will make a proud addition to any collection.

* Or equivalent local currency, terms and conditions apply






Helmet and Plasma Pistol options included.

That's quite a big buy-in price for a fairly mediocre model.

I will order the Ltd Warhawk this weekend, but I can't say I'm too inclined to add on an extra £100 of stuff to get this. It might well be fairly rare in a few years, but I can't see it fetching big bucks given it's so generic.

Helmeted option is nicer in my opinion.

For what it’s worth, my order came to £156. Had I bought it through Element (my preferred online provider) it would’ve been £132.60.

YMMV, but that’s much of a muchness for me personally.

Hmmm. Something weird. Locally here it says 195€...but I noticed GW put it automatically when I had 110€ worth of items lying in my basket...

wonder if the sum is actually in error

edit: Trying things around didn't get it at 80e, got it appear at 100€.

edit2: 95€ no castus, 100€ castus.

I just tried with £105 worth of stuff, and no freebie added.

However, it could be One Per Customer, and as I’ve already bagged one?

Anyone else fancy playing around with it?

I actually like it but at 150£ its bit too much for add on bonus...

Expect I went and tested and I got the free guy added for 100€ (or roughly 85.5£). 150£ would be 175€. So there could be some weirdness going on.

I really like it. But why on earth did he need a tactical rock? They could easily have replaced it with a necron torso or something...

On this one, seems well suited to making it into statue scenery?

Tempting, I am going to try and pick up the Ltd. Warhawk tomorrow, though not sure if there's £100 worth of extra webstore exclusive (or non-discounted elsewhere) stuff that I would want.

3 copies of Warhawk maybe, one for me, two for eBay

Yeah, I can't justify that price. $100 USD, maybe. $150 even. But $200+ is too much at once.

But I guess scalpers will make a killing off it within a year.


Is it weird he has pouches on his metal hip flaps?

I think it’s a nice bonus if you were planning a spend anyway, and just need to up it a bit to qualify, or indeed just a nice little bonus on a qualifying spend you were gonna do regardless.

But yeah….someone spending £150 just to get this is a bit of a stretch.

I know I’m a sucker for exclusive, but still only went for it because a) hobby budget refreshed yesterday following payday b) I was wanting more Necromunda stuff anyway, in preparation for a long awaited Actual Campaign.

Any idea when the SoB vs Tau KT box will go on preorder? It's been estimated to cost somewhere between 100-150€ so that might qualify. But other than that, there's really no way I'll be spending that much on more GW stuff this month.

Not into Interecessors anyway, so not a big loss either way.

On one hand, i'm angered it's yet another Marine relase.
On the other hand, it's a Marine, so it's a model that'll hurt the least for anyone to miss out on, since they all look the same anyway

I'm also a sucker for exclusive models (having recently spent $100 just on that space marine heroes exclusive sorcerer, without the paint set he came in). But I *think* I'm drawing the line here

If it was $150 USD, I'd end up getting a combat patrol for my brother's birthday next month, or go ham on picking up other models. Heck, I could probably justify it if I could order models on different days, and still get the model if I spent enough within the month, but that's not how this works

If they weren't drip-feeding the Stormcast release? I might have been able to do it. But we're still waiting on all the stuff I want(named dragon and Vigilors).

That is super cool and I would buy it in an instant at standard character prices. Having to forego my employee discounts at the flgs would mean I’d be paying over $80 for that one dude however, so big nope.

Well, the Loot Group price is £21, as set by me because it’s the same price as other Commemorative Series Models.

How many might be offered, I don’t know.

Let's see: taking into account you can buy at 15% off easily in many stores, the "free" mini would amount to... 22,5 pounds.

The Marine is a bit dull to be dropping 195€ on other stuff straight from GW.

Yeah, if that released coincided with the promotion window and the box was stupidly underproduced, that wouldn't be the worst way to go about it.

Okay, the helmet version is damn perfect and outright hilarious.

A fool and his money is easily parted and if they want to release this as a normal £25 model...I'll do it. Seriously. That is hands down the best Space Marine model I have ever seen. One of the necrons is screaming "have mercy Sgt Castus!" while the other "No! He must be stopped at all costs!". All that is missing is a Sister of Battle and Inquistor Greyfax clinging to his legs, screaming "Save us!".

But seriously, why "free" with £150 orders? Along with removing free AoS warscrolls, nerf-banning Porphyrions, mobilising their legal team on anyone & everyones ass, Cursed City, overpriced Kill Team softbacks...does GW hate their paying customers or something?

Casual gaming, mostly solo-coop these days.

Well, whilst I doubt it’ll cause a high number of folks to spend previously unplanned cash, I can’t see it actively dissuading anyone from spending previously planned cash?
