Default GW, You need to make 8 inch Tall Figures!

I wish GW made some kind of Big Size figures (6 inches and over). C'mon guys (and Gals), you can't tell me you wouldn't buy one, cause hell, I would!

Because of their bulkiness I would love to see them in a 8 inch height (I only know western measurements) and non pre-painted, so we can have fun painting them.

They can't be too expensive, I mean c'mon, figs such as Playarts aren't extremely pricey (they are pricey, but still cheaper than miniatures )

Brother artemis is a fair bit larger than 2 1/2" tall (closer to 3 1/2 - 4"tall, regular action figure sized). The rest are proper scaled for humans next to him.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

No, I wouldn't want to see that. A single model from GW that was 8" or taller would probably cost close to $100 if not more. The swarmlord that I picked up is about 4.5" and is $54. This hobby is expensive enough as is.

"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."

Hmm, they could base a game on these larger models, with wickedly complicated rules... and people would buy (or not) a small squad as their army. And, they could build a role playing game around it too... And they could call it inquisitor.
