View Full Version : Goldsword sprue query

11-08-2010, 09:46
Took a look at the greatsword sprue at GW's website, it seems like you get 9x2 torsos per box. Is this true or is the torso two-part, and if so, why cant I find the tenth torsobit?

Also, it seems like you get 10x2 Greatsword arms(right) and only 7x2 left arms(that go with the greatsword)?

And 15x2 heads?

The Sprue Pics forum (http://spruepics.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=empire&action=display&thread=117) can be helpful. It seems the box includes 12 torsos and only ten legs. There's a load of arms as well, so you should be able to kitbash quite a few greatswords from one box.

There is an uneven number of torso parts because three of the torsos are one piece and the other three are made of two halves (to produce overlapping waist armour effect).

There are indeed a number of extra heads, all of which look much better than any of those from State Troops or Handgunners regiment. Goldswords are in my opinion the best plastic Empire kit ever made. If they weren't ridiculously overpriced I would have bought more of them (I only got my hands on one box as a commission payment).
