Not bad! But not convinced about the Tomb Blades.
Oh well, didn't fancy using them anyways!
YES! I am NOT dissapointed.
New Wraiths look sick! love them, really awesome design, they look even more cyber-cthulhu than ever. Gonna order six boxes of those.
Triarch Stalker is awesome too, will need one of those too. Doesnt look that different from conversions - but it's what I expected and I am happy with that.
Spyder is good enough - an improvement over the old metal one! shame it doesnt look lke it comes with any scarab swarms as some people had hoped for but still decent.
Tomb Blades - didnt think I'd care for these, but I actually quite like them. I like the almost "pod" type of them, different to how I thought they'd look - but very nice.
Overall, really happpy thank Azathoth!
Hmmm that spider looks pants! The old one was much cooler. I will give it a miss (or buy an old 1) as £20 is a bit steep.
Wraiths look ok but again I prefer the old ones for some reason. Also those whip coils are gonna break off fast.
Tomb blades look ok I suppose - nothing special, but then they are just hovering cron warriors really.
Now the walker is the best of the bunch for me! I love it.
My random painting log- 3/3/2013 now painting winter VC- black knights.
The Blades sort of have the Darth Maul speeder look to them. simple, arc shaped like much of Necron stuff, with upgrades added on where it fits.

very nice! Not sure on the tomb blades but wraiths are very nice - do we have any costings yet? Stalker looks real nice too, shame it's not that great...
Thanks Crystalseer by the gods the stalker is intimidating, I think the spyder is my favorite,the large eye makes for a very catching focus point. Another job well done by geedub methinks.

Very nice! The Wraiths are my favorite, while the Spyder looks like it should have years ago, far sharper then the old one.
All the plastics are going to absolutely destroy my bank account.
Cannot wait to see the characters!
I really like this wave.
The Canoptek stuff has a nice Matrix vibe, the Stalker is ace.
Tomb Blades look a bit awkward, hopefully they can be tilted back so the pilots are sitting up straight.
Of all the threads in all the forums in all the world you had to post into this one.
The spyders are gorgeous! I REALY like them. I wasn't interested in them, but now I guess I have to buy some...
The wraiths are cool also, but here I'm divided as I love the old ones... I guess the new ones win because are plastic and don't break everytime they fall...
Sisters of Battle: 2W-0D-1L
Necrons: 2W-0D-0L / (5th: 3W-3D-1L)
(Tyranids: 6th: 1W-0D-0L / 5th: 9W-4D-9L) (Army sold)
The Wraiths are cool. I'll punt for a couple of boxes of those.
The Stalker looks better than I expected. Odd re-design of the Heavy Gauss Cannon. Possibly new parts for the Fincast kit then? The picture doesn't show a base, and the text doesn't mention one. Dammit GW! have you learnt nothing from the Defiler?
The Tomb Blades look as daft as the pictur in the codex.
I prefer(ed) the old Spyder. This one looks more like several different constructs randomly welded together. It seems to have been designed to have the twin-Particle Beamers as default, making the standard 'sensor' version look rather odd in comparison (not that the Beamer version isn't odd; and what does it do without the sensor?).
Really impressed with all the kits even the tomb blades, they're odd, which is cool, the rest of the kits are fantastic. I was really worried that the spyders would look like the art work in the codex, which looks really dull.
Stalker - yes very nice and Imposing! I like it
Wraiths - not bad at all - 3/box is very good - still waiting to see the price though
Tomb Blades - Trigger my WTF am I looking at response. :-p Still... I like them better than the artwork - they may just be funky enough to try out A swarm of them zipping about the battlefield may be very very cool.
Spyder - It looks nice - a little too 'busy' for me, but it's impressive. The price hurts though, and I can't see getting a whole army's worth.
Overall - very cool wave!
Hmm...what of the character models?
Such amazing models my wallet is going to hate me so much.
Hmm. Random irritation though.
Tomb Blades come in squadrons of up to 5. And boxes of 3. Reckon singles will be flooding ebay shortly. Which is kind of useful, as I'll try and pick them up from there.
