View Full Version : Most and Least cost-effective FW products?

07-04-2008, 21:38
Hey all, just wondering what, in you mind, is the best FW product for the money, and the product that really shouldn't have that price tag.

For me, I'd have to say that the Sentinel conversions ($30 US) are the most cost effective, seeing as how a rocket pod sentinel (one of my favorite models) costs the exact same amount as a Cadian sentinel.

As for the least cost-effective, well, that would either go to the lasgun accessory (8 bucks for 4 lasguns? lol nice try) or for the Death Korps infantry range. Granted, I'm an idiot and I still bought forty, but they are nice and expensive anyways.

What are your thoughts?

Did you know that you've misspelled Harbinger in your username? :p

Probably the least cost-effective model is the Tarantula Sentry Gun with Heavy Bolters.

15points, 14 pounds.

Lol, amazingly enough it was intentional. I liked the word, spelled it wrong when I was like 8, and it's stuck ever since.

Are we talking cost effective for money, or points? Because grenadier centaurs are 38, cost 50 points, and they are tiny (http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q44/LordCook9/P4030031_01.jpg). I would consider them extremely cost effective for points, but not for cash.

In terms of other models, I would say the bombard is perhaps one of the worst, as it is a (IMO) very poor tank and costs 50. Looks fantastic, but there you go.

The wall-plates for the chapters cost a fair bit of $ for a cool look.:cries:

Cash. And thanks for reminding me never to buy a Centaur :(

The centaurs look so good though, can you put a price on army aesthetics?

The Centaur Assault Carrier is just as effective points-wise as the Death Korps heavy weapons teams- it could be much worse.

Centaurs may cost a kidney, but for the points I actually really like them. And they open up some interesting new tactics that add a splash of variety to a Guard mechanized army.
