i just seen on on the webisite and they 25 for 10 plastic models how the hell do they expext to sell them wen you can get 10 metal ones 4 a pound cheaper. gravegaurd r 15 pounds 4 10 but 25 bloody quid for plastic

They expect to sell them because the metal ones won't be for sale anymore. The same way the plastic steam tank is $60. Seriously what the hell? HEY GUYS EMPIRE ALL IN PLASTIC YAAAAY (but they will be more expensive than metal tee hee)

I'm hoping that it's just a placeholder price or something but with the rumored price increases I don't know...

yeah they have finally gone off the deep end, seriously I'm not gonna pay $50 for 10 PLASTIC greatswords (No matter how good they look), GW has got to get its head out of its a$$ and review their business and pricing practices. Not that they will I'm sure, they are all legends in their own minds as they drive away customers.

I was gonna get a plastic stank to match my metal one but for $60!!!! The Steg is only $45 and is a far more intricate model IMO, course this just gives them the impetus to move the steg price up to $60

Remember they have to charge this much because of um.. oil and er.. recessions.

Agreed. Thoroughly ridiculous.

The great thing about Greatswords is you need at least 20 to field an effective unit. That's $100 for a unit of troops that can be more or less replaced with a big block of state troops or Flagellants.

All GW has done is effectively discourage players who don't already have Greatswords from fielding them.

We already have discussions on this in fantasy N&R and 'other GW discussion' so to avoid duplicate discussion this one is now closed.
