To preface, this isnt an anti-GW post, more so a post regarding expectations.
This weekend, the store I was at had an Armorcast Baneblade in their case, and I asked the store owner how it compared size wise to the new Baneblade. He said that the armorcast was a hair shorter in length, and that the new model was slightly wider.
I was NOT impressed by the size of the tank. The box it comes in is huge, but the model itself...not so much. Maybe Im a victim of marketing or hype, but I was expecting to be bowled over by this model (I WAS thinking of possibly getting one eventually for my fledgling IG). I was expecting HUGE, especially because of the asking price, but Im thinking, "your kidding, right?" when I saw its diminutive size (Im used to Tamiya armor in 1/35th scale). I understand the detail, sculpting etc, but I'm thinking that if the GW model isnt much bigger than the Armorcast, the kit to me has lost it's luster. I was expecting something large enough to have structure points, someting to dwarf a Land Raider. Did I set myself up for dissapointment?
Does anyone know the dimensions of the actual GW kit? Is the shopkeep right?
