Good that they'll actually have Chaos Cultist models apart from the Dark Vengeance set. I was planning on converting Flagellants and appropriating guns from Imperial Guard, but this should be cheaper.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

You can get 20 cultists on ebay consistently for less than £18

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I can't wait until CSM gets its legit 2nd wave.

I mean, this is cute, but.... it's only five cultists? for $12? I'd rather have 10 plus upgrade options for $27 :\

So, I think I'll hold off on that for now, but those box sets sound pretty damn awesome. The Necrons and Vampire counts are especially tempting. Too bad I can't justify spending that much... yet.

boobs. that is all.

I'm mildly irritated by how they decided to do the Cultists. On one hand, they did it in a relatively inexpensive way-- 5 models for $10. On the other hand, it'd be far more useful for gamers and hobbyists both to have a multi-part plastic kit that has both close combat and ranged options. I get that it's painfully simple to convert cultists from Empire Flagellants and Catachans, but it seems strange to me to not offer a kit when it's a unit that's become hugely popular.

could just be a cultist stop gap unit, if the CSM are to get a second wave later on you might see a 10 man with options unit, till then this can be used to bulk up the numbers.

Yes, I suppose so. But to make the molds for a separate kit, packaging, shipping, etc-- the development cost of just making a full muti-part kit isn't that much higher than repackaging the cultists as they did. So from a business standpoint it doesn't really make any sense to me.

I'm more excited about the 'eavy metal edge set. Not that I really need the paints, but the 'eavy metal brush set was a wonderful buy, and have been some of the best brushes I've had to date. I'd love a detail brush made the same way, of 100% female sable. And it wouldn't be bad to have the pastel range in a regular paint formula, I suppose. They're the same colors as the dry compounds, if you look at them-- they're just in the layer formula, which seems handy to me.

I sure as fuck hope so; in fact, I'm betting on it.

Neither does alienating your consumer base in the long term for short-term gain every year, but that doesn't stop them.
