slaaneshy I love those berzerker chaps, especially those guys with the chains! I will probably replace a unit of my 'classic' berzerkers with a unit of those bad boys.

I got told by FW about using the MKII pads as they wouldn't make the MKIII even as they are too similar. :s

First option your put off buying the model, second your more likely. Hence, complaining about a paint job is kinda silly... unless it make the model look flat out terrible.. which the FW paint job doesn't.
I see your point I didn't realy think of it like that, but I see how looking at an awesomely painted model could put someone off and make them feel like they could ever do it justice and not want to pick it up I guess. Personally I love seeing awsome paint jobs like evey metal, or on Gw website even the some of plog here on heresy, I find.it inspiring

Svartmetall I'm gonna have to get me some sets of the Phobos axes & bolt pistols for sure...

TheReverend Hmm, I agree with the bad heads, but also that it's probably the painting, they look better without the paint.

Could make good Wulfen for my wolves!

Zion I just saw the updated post with all that Death Guard stuff.....I think FW wants all my money.

Zero Effect I will be buying them Rampagers woo hoo.

Heads are well heads but need to see them up close and personal. Currently with me being ill I actually have the butchers nails implanted in my head. The pressure is almost unbearable!

I admit those heads aren't exactly the best they've sculpted, by the looks of it they've tried to hard to make them look like mini Angrons which has made them slightly ugly but the paint work hasn't helped they look better without paint but not by much, but been as they are marines changing the heads wouldnt be hard.
