When Chaos Marines came out last year I was repulsed by much of their new models, Heldrakes, cqc Obliterators, etc. "Surely" I thought - "surely, it can't get worse?" Since then, almost every new release has been a kidney punch of horrible toy-looking models.
And now, Imperial Guard, has just smashed home an incredible achievement of looking like it doesn't even belong in this game system anymore.
Is freaking retarded. This is a toy. IT EVEN LOOKS TO BE OUT OF SCALE WITH EVERYTHING ELSE!!
Have they completely cut down on all talent?
But that's not the worst. Nooooo....
What. The. Shit.
If someone plonked down this loathsome horror on my table I would vomit.
I may be late to the "party" (wake?) but I saw these 20 minutes ago and still have a look of disgust on my face. Games Workshop is dying.
They are cutting corners where they shouldn't, and have yet to kill off the one thing they need to (brick+mortar stores)
I honestly think this is it for me. Going to ask my IG club regular what he thinks of the new models. If I get even a hint he might be thinking of using these horrible pieces of shit I'll probably have to be proactive and cut my losses.
