Sly Marbo
M WS BS S T A HP SV
8 2+ 2+ 4 4 8 15 6+

His blade is just normal CCW with no special rules.
His gun is assault 2.

- Not ready to die: ignore wounds on a roll of 4+
- Always deals mortal wounds on hitting.
- Any enemy walking in a terrain when Marbo is on the table roll a dice, on 6 they take 3D3 mortal wounds.

Would that be good enough for Marbo?


His blade at least needs to be coated in poison. Or just say it does mortal wounds instead of him so it seems more special.

There’s a big “powergamer” (plays the biggest scariest looking thing he can but throws a fit about plasma guns being unfair) in my group right now. I really hope Marbo will screw with him a bit.

I swear I'm not a paid shill for Anvil Industry. I’d be willing if they wanted to pay me.

We've had some questions from fans asking about how they'll be able to get their hands on Sly Marbo.

Sly will be drawing first blood in a special preview release this holiday season for those fans lucky enough to track him down in Games Workshop and Warhammer stores.

Don't worry if you don't manage to get your hands on him - you can't keep an Imperial hero down, and Sly will be returning next year so every fan can enlist him in their armies.

That's...actually pretty reasonable. It lets the "exclusive dontcha know fnar fnar" crowd feel like they're special snowflakes, but doesn't deprive the rest of us of the chance to own a cool model.

Now we just have to hope "The Triumphant Return" isn't some gratuitous "spend five bajillion dollars on GW.com and be graciously and magnanimously granted the opportunity to purchase Sly Marbo for only an additional one bajillion dollars!" situation.

Since the English language:

noun, Rhetoric.
1.
obvious and intentional exaggeration.
2.
an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”.


I mean seriously chief, GW are literally running a scheme at present where in order to be granted the opportunity to pay them money for a Terminator Chaplain you have to go into their store on an event day and buy enough stuff to fill out a little punch card, it's not as if they don't have any sodding form on this kind of thing yeah.

Since rumoured release date is 25th Dec I guess they've just decided to put what stock they have for release in stores ahead of that and do a proper website release in late Jan/Feb when they have restocked after the Christmas break.

23rd of December, not 25th.

25th is a Monday. New releases come out on Saturdays.
23rd is a Saturday.

Expect preorders to go up on December 16th.

As for the price, it looks like he is coming in a fancy box like the Veteran Intercessor Sergeant. A poster, rules, and model for $25 USD isn't too bad considering he'd likely be $20 to $25 by himself.

Just to play devil's advocate here, the Canoness was available in shops and the webstore at the same time.
She then went to webstore only.

The wording there makes me think this is the same case.

An earlier post in this thread suggests pre-orders starting on the 9th.

From the facebook page, quoted in this very thread page, they actiually said it'd be released this Christmas (as already shown in the 23rd release date from the WD leaks) and then available freely on the website in the new year.

Yeah the Catachan command kit is probably the nicest looking plastic IG infantry out there right now. They've got good proportions and a nice variety of poses.

Wait, dose that mean he's "finecast" like the canoness? Personally I think that's fine, as I've found the quality of finecast to now be in a better place today than when it st release. But I understand a lot of people who had bad experiences with it may be wary if that's the case.

Okay then his knife always wound on a 2+ and is AP +3 but it doesn't really matter because all his attacks (shooting and close combat) that hits do mortal wound anyway ^^.

He is finecast, not plastic. RIP, was excited only to have my hopes dashed.

All the Finecast models I have bought the past years where of excellent quality with 0 problems. Veridyan and Slambo for example. Is not a material I like to work with, but I have no problems having 1-2 special characters released in that material if that means we can reveice this kind of random heroes that otherwise wouldn't be made in plastic.

Resin casts the best resolution models, then metal and last plastic. I actually prefer static posed special characters be in resin. So long as it isn't failcast from a few years back

I loathe Finecast but took a chance on Slambo as he was the first Chaos Champion I got as a kid. He was perfect so I'll give Marbo a chance.

Anyone who still claims plastic lacks the detail of metal/resin hasn't kept up with the times. This hasn't been true for years. Don't believe me? Pull up any AoS kit at random and tell me it's lacking in detail.

I don't need to believe you since I actually cast models Plastic has indeed come a long way but it absolutely does not capture detail the same as resin. Your confusing amount of detail with level of detail.

Yeah. GW resin models aren't a good comparison agaisn't plastic. Even FW ones. But compare the best plastic models out there (GW, Malifaux) agaisn't Infinity metal models or resin models like the Mierce ones.

I prefer plastic, all the day of the week. But plastic isn't as good as Metal and Resin as capturing fine and 3D detail. I don't know why, for some people, to acknowledge that is so difficult. Like they are in some kind of ProPlastic-Crusade where they need to deny any kind of advantage, however minimal, of metal and resin
