    who did you order from?

    Sorry mate I only just checked in again and saw this! I ordered from wartablegames.com - ships quickly from the deepest darkest Orient. Quality has been excellent on everything. They have a bunch of stuff you can't get anymore, too. Looking at a MK II heavy weapon team right now, for example. Recasting being somewhat less than wholly reliable at the best of times, this store the only reason I might functionally get into 30K at some point. They don't have it all but they have a decent selection.

    I also just grabbed a set of 5 DA chests to intermix with the Mk IV chaps, since I'm going to mix in the back packs from the DA Veterans in with them. Five fancy chest upgrade guys get a MK IV pack, other 5 regular chest dudes get a fancy DA pack from the Vets pack, then the Vets guys get the remaining IV packs - this should give me 15 fairly individual looking figures that all appear to blend together from the same period. The Vets have a 6th fancy pack going to my Moritat-as-DA Praetor/Sergeant dude. Pretty chuffed with how they should all turn out once I can work on them.

    Yes! I think the new models really do them proud. I lament how frightfully expensive it is here to buy 40K now, or I'd go back to expanding on my Crimson Slaughter. Hell, if conditions were what they were less than 5 years ago I'd go all-in on these guys. They just look fantastic, regular CSM troopers & Havocs especially.



    That being said, as things stand economically I'm gradually convincing myself I can afford a Start Collecting! box of Mechanicus later in the year. I finally caved and grabbed an individual UR-025 figure from Blackstone Fortress via eBay and plan to slice & dice him into a Dominus. I may currently be reading Priests/Lords/Gods of Mars trilogy.

    If I want to expand them I can buy a second box (and then sell both regular Dominus...suses...es) since at $165 per box for $318 RRP of models gives me enough leeway to perform the necessary mental gymnastics to convince myself I'm not still being thoroughly shafted.

    I don't really play 40k anylonger - 8th edition didn't really get a warm reception around these parts since we're mostly just a bunch of bittervets still reminiscing about the good old days of WHFB 6th edition. There's an active Mordeim scene though which is a lot of fun. There's also a fairly large group of 30k players.

    But damn. I've been waiting for a new box of plain old regular CSM for 18 years and despite probably not getting a chance to field them anytime soon, I'm struggling to keep myself from ordering as many boxes of them as I can afford. I suppose I could use them as 30k Word Bearers from the later part of the Heresy or something?

    Someday Eldar will get plastic Aspect warriors

    I like 8th more than any of the older editions I played. But it does have stupid concealment rules (see a guy's foot? blast the whole squad!) and a 3+ armor save feels like the 5+ of older editions

    mate seeing how Aus gets fucked is a regular on the outercircle's vids (which are ace) even here in the UK i can't justify buying most kits even at the 25% off i get at a 3rd party retailer, let alone anything from FW.
