... and the chap on the other end of the line said they are being sent out today! :eek: even though the release date isn't for another 12 days.

So if so, might well have it by the end of the week... which will be nice :)

Thats awesome!! If I can get it by the end of the week then i'll be happy, I can't work on them til the weekend anyway so as long as they are here by then :D

Kudos though, getting it that early is impressive. ;)

I pondered ordering it but such a waist of money for some shinies that you can get first of next month anyway.

Yep, But i got the money to wast and tomorrow am going to walk in to my GC and play with my New marries a full month early plus there the metal price rise happing so realy if you get it now your saving money if you want all the things in it.

A waste for a number of people probably, but as I myself would be buying the entire contents at some point anyway I may as well get them early for no difference !

True but I had the cash spare and I want to get my hands on the new codex ASAP.

I've a question for those who have the spearhead already re the Vets that come with bolters in the spearhead, how are the actual figures (not the rules) different from normal marines?

I'm debating on picking up a couple of packs of them but if they are very similar to normal marines then I'll use the marines from Black Reach.

Sternguard: there models and posers are cool, there armour got a lot more detale to it but i not looked over them much.

Vanguard: There quite nice once again there armour nicer then the plasics lots of puraty seals and trim the sargents got a nice looking relic blade too also there semi based.

You probly could convert them from the plastics but IMO the metals are a lot better

Ta.

Its down to cost for me I'm afraid, ~29 for a squad of ten vs. ~32 for a complete Black Reach set, of which the tactical marines would have been redundant due to the vast number of tacticals I already own.

I've enough spare bling to add to the black reach models to compensate, its just if the weapon/option load out would have been painful to replicate, this is why I've brought metal close combat vets in the past.

The money saved equals (I'm buying two copies of black reach anyway) extra two drop pods and a redeemer with all the other bits for the same price as the spearhead.

Vanguard is different, its only a couple of quid more per 5 marines, they need some more thinking.

I am waiting on two. I hope I get them soon because the parts will sell better if it is quite some time before they are in stores.
