Regarding thru individual weapons teams, can anyone remember their price before they went into a three pack?

The individual heavy weapon teams were 5 each but were metal and you still got 1 with the metal squads so were a replacement rather than a neccessity.
While I don't want this to be a rant over price looking at the WD page shown earlier The junior officer type model refers to the Imperial guard book for orders does this mean that it will be invalidated within weeks when the new book comes out or that you need 2 30 books to make the army playable neither idea really appeals to me.

There was a time when the plastic ones were boxed individually, that's what I was asking about.

Regarding the books, the Tempests Codex up now for pre-order is a book allowing you to field an army of STs.

The Militarum codex that'll be up for pre-order either next week or the week after will, I'm sure, have them as an elites choice.

Are these going to just be in the guard codex anyway, and this is a way to make extra money beforehand?
It's a mini codex that is mainly so you can ally them to other armies without needing the full codex. Or, if you're a bit crazy, just build an army solely out of Stormtroopers and run that instead.

That's about standard, actually. All the units on 60mm bases work out about a tenner each - some more. Hive Guard, centurions, etc.

Very much considering buying 5 boxes of Stormtroopers and 2 Valkyries... IF CSM can ally with them directly. We'll see... Not gonna jump the gun on a ~$270 purchase.

Guys hi, why they are now 'Astra Militaris' - what happened to 'Imperial Guard'? Is this a full overhaul?
