    Looks really nice, but if it's really 50 euro (and I suppose it is, judging by the size), I'm not getting it. Too big and too expensive for what is really just a little 65-point throwaway unit.

    not impressed at all with the manglers, their legs look like they are in completely unatural positions and the faces are a bit pants.

    was hoping squig quality of gobbla not the quality of the giant cave squig horribleness

    Mangler Squig my favourite.. looks awesome.

    Reckon earlier post saying Gorgon/Cygor would look better with darker colour scheme spot on - models themselves look fun.

    Jabberslythe looks vile and completely freaky.. won't get one but i like it.. and little wings are hilarious - you could easily underestimate it and get gobbled up.

    Great set of Christmas releases.

    The Mangler Squig is pretty awesome I think. It seems like it would be kind of an intricate and fragile model though.

    Oh sweet, I'm happy finally some nice new Squigs. I really like the Beastmen stuff too. In fact I'm loving all the BIG monsters GW are making at the moment, yeah they cost a lot but they are cool. Good times

    Those Squigs are beast-! But how did they get ontop of each other ? Playing leap squig-?
    Any guesses on the base size, does not look that big.

    So glad my army collection is complete- these new prices would make me want buy elsewhere
    "just make the Base size reasonable:confused:" go go 100mm by 100mm!

    Couldn't say it better.

    The model itself is nice. But I fear about its stability. Have a look at the connection to the base: a flimsy leg and a gobbo. Look at the connections between both squigs. That will bend easily.

    While the model is okay, I think it is much too expensive. The choice of material doesn't convince me either. Thanks, I'll pass.

    Re: O&G Mangler Squigs

    I like the mangler squig as a model per se, but:

    1) I don't think it's worth 50 euros.

    2) It's finecrap.

    3) It's not as dynamic as i thought it would be.

    The price tag is what really kills the model for me. 50 euros is way too much.

    That is a great sculpt in the most traditional wa:, without looking at the detail or stilistic choices, what really stands out is the way the sculpture creates a flow for the eye, it leads you in a spiral that goes upward, that, coupled with how the empty spaces are integrated to balance out the volumes really makes it an admirable piece

    Re: O&G Mangler Squigs

    Oh come on, 50 euro's for this? Seriously 50 euros?

    Does GW think I'll grind the whole model down and sell it as coke?

    For that price, i'll see if I can convert something myself for far less moneys. Oh yeah and its finecrap, an even bigger reason to convert something myself.

    Re: O&G Mangler Squigs

    Nice idea, but I have to say I'm not convinced by the top Squig. The lower one is great and all, but most people (myself included) play 2 Mangler Squigs. And there is no way I pay 100€ for the same model twice and with the chance of a Finecast problem.
    Thanks, I'll stick to my Chase conversions.

    A million times better than the Beastmen rubbish we saw but not worth 50 euro, especially when you need 2 or 3 of them.

    Re: O&G Mangler Squigs

    Hm....not sure if I really like it. And the price is outrageous, to say the least. Hopefully you can seperate the two Squigs easily. Than I'll simply buy one, and combine the two Squigs with the ones from the Chase to create two Manglers.
    this is blasphemy...this is BRETTNESS!

    Re: O&G Mangler Squigs

    That's the thing, it's nice but for the amount of material (plastic), to me, it is really not worth the price. I guess there is always a way around it by making your own.
