Now what's to bet that tac sprue two is a fiver here in merry old england. Have noticed the box sets seem a lot more value for money compared to the sprues nowadays. Hmmm...

it'll be at least 6-8 as the old command sprue was 3 and you get double the stuff on there over the old one, we'll just have to wait and see

While we're talking about releases, look what I found on the GWUK site...

The Hive Tyrant is a large and massively powerful Tyranid creature. Highly psychic, their relationship to the Hive Mind is closer even than that of Tyranid Warriors. (Out: 9 Apr)
Think I missed that one ;)

Show's how slack the UK web team can get though! Still no sign of the new tac, dev and assault squads.

apparently its on the store and independant retailler lists but not the webstore one yet, so its not really the webteams fault (they can't place on what they don't have yet so to speak)

M'eh? Yet the US and French websites can? That's logical :confused:

Incidently, 95 quid battlewagon anybody?

different webteams, and different release dates and targets, once again the UK gets shafted

I was just thinkng that ... the current Sgt sprue is 3.00 and this has a load more stuff on it for if I equate the price to UK is roughly the same. GW giving us more stuff for the same moeny - quick someone give me a slap ... or an I missing something here???

Think the combat sqaud will be one 5 man body sprue AND the upgrade sprue not even GW could justify the price hike without giving us something that little bit extra. And looking at things long term with the amount of sprues these tools will product these things cost pence to produce.

Having just seen this pile of poo the saying about a 'fool and his money' springs to mind. 95 for that!!!

:cool:

Or buy a crappy land raider wreck from ebay or a mate and detail with bitz of wood, sprue and plastic. Maximum cost about 20.

I'd love to see how many of those they manage to sell.

its the same with the 70 you MUST pay for the IG bikes

Like the 3 bikes for 80 quid. Fine if your GW staff and got access to those special boxes that are hidden in the stores but not for us prolls.

Edit:Bah, beaten to it.
I've not paid nearly as much for my IG biker project. Using Ebay it's come to about 25 pounds for 4 or 5 metal bikes. Just need some more IG biker legs...

oh it was 80? sorry, i was only a tenner out, still i could make better ones than that for a fraction of the price

81 to be exact. Or three carnosaur riding rough riders for 59.50

doesn't the Carnosaur take up a heavy slot though?

I thought the new Assault Squad had a left handed lightning claw in plastic...damn.

nope, its been widely known for about 6 weeks that there was going to be no plastic claw in the box, one of their little mistakes that could bite them in the **** IMHO
