oh I know, the problem is to find them in stock of the weapons you want, as they are always out of the weapons you want because everyone buys them up first (though once again, using said site makes the box of 10 even more valuable as the only thing special about the long fang boxes in the first place are the heavy weapons )

Of course I think the Dev / Long Fang box is stupid in the first place as neither box gives you the ability to choose ALL the weapons you would want on said squads, it just gives you one of each, forcing you to buy, say, 5 boxes, to get a squad of 5 Missile Launchers (the old Long Fang loadout, not sure how it would fare in 7th)

the other thing i like is that they have bothered to bundle them together at all, i know its a little like spoon feeding the customer, but considering some of the comments i see on social media from gamers i can understand why they have done it, part of games workshops continued ability to sell stuff stems from the paranoia of its customer base of not wanting to field anything that didnt come off the shelf and from the pages of the codex, thats why i think we are seeing things like allies matrix and codex supplements/dataslates, the average GW gamer lacks the initiative/confidence/ability to work this shit our for them self? or maybe they are just too lazy? back in the day of RT the game was pretty fluid and open ended, you pretty much turned up with anything and worked out the rules for it as you went along, ok maybe not ideal for the gamer of today but it meant imagination and fun were the key factors in the game.

ckcrawford Chariot is kind of ridiculous. Thats pushing it really. They are fricken super humans with the best armor in the galaxy.

Diatribe1974 The Skyclaws will be mine soon enough. Probably 2 boxes worth.

Khorne's Fist Found this on fb. Looks like a repackaging of existing SW sprues with heavy weapons and jump packs. Don't see a frost cannon on the LFs though. It says there's 8 heavy weapons, which is the same as the standard devastator box, which has a missile launcher, a multi-melta, two heavy bolters, two lascannons and two plasma cannons. Also just noticed that they are €3 dearer than the normal SM boxes. The Warriors of the Fang box saves you €34 though.

Firewolf >> Having read the book, I think its pretty good. Yeah, they have lost a few "wolfy" things, but I honestly like the tactical objectives. Yeah, they replace rulebook ones, but I think they give us some of the wolfyness back, basically we are marines, but We think different tactically. Im sure you get my point there, even if it looks wrong.

>> Logan's chariot looks sweet, but I wont get one. And free storm shields for termies is cool imo.
