But what do you guys think of the rest of the releases to come? Those are way more interesting IMHO. Mechanicus stuff looks great and the mk2 and mk3 command squads are both very tempting to me at the moment. I did sneak the link in at the bottom of the post: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Download...Cat-Supweb.pdf

ENEMIES OF THE IMPERIUM!

You'll have to whine louder, we can't hear you over the sound of all our new releases.




Seriously, the HH was cool and all, when it was interspersed with other armies toys, but my god would it kill FW to release something for Xenos in between all this 30k junk?

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

That Mechanicus stuff made me feel all warm and fuzzy

I think those poses are referred to as the 'drunken windmill outside a nightclub'

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

I will once again go sit in my corner and lament the Sons of Horus not getting awesome kits like this. All the Sons of Horus have gotten for their special units are lame third-party-looking conversion kits...
The Reaver Squads are pretty cool, but Justaerin are too overpriced to even consider using. Dreadclaws don't even have models yet.

Red Butchers on the other hand are pretty ninja ruleswise. And the models are fairly cool; I just, yeh, poses.

Red Butchers are fairly awesome shock troops, but are expensive; unlike many other Legion Terminator Squads, they NEVER be scoring units. Their WS5 with Hatred is cool, but is outweighed by the fact all enemies hit them on 3+ along with striking at I1 due to PAxes, which is slightly evened up by 2 wounds, 4++ Cataphractii and FNP, along with rerolling failed charge distances. They have no anti-armour outside of the Devoured (Sergeant) equipped with a PFist/Chainfist/THammer. However, Cataphractii's improved save on a melee only unit is terrible; they cannot Run to close the distance.

For me, the fact that the Reaver squads look kinda like bad third party "for use with 40k" models is what annoys me. I love the Justaerin models, and I'd probably just use the models as regular Legion Terminators. The Sons of Horus, rules-wise, are great, and I have no complaints. All the Legions seem to have one good unique unit and one that's strictly meh, so I don't mind the Justaerin not being points-efficient. I'm more concerned with the models themselves, rather than their performance on the tabletop. I'm very much a hobbyist first, and a gamer second. Or maybe even third... I love the game, don't get me wrong, but how a model performs on the tabletop is maybe the third thing I worry about. My pecking order really is "Is the model cool?" followed by "Is the background for this kind of unit, what they do in the army organizationally, etc, interesting?" and then finally by whether or not it's good in the game.

Saw this on Facebook and just had to share it.
Sorry, but I just can't take them poses seriously at all now.

Lulz!

Im not stoked by herpy mcderp and their poses either, but then again its (yet again) Khorne stuff so who cares
Most of the FW releases are good, however they had to fail with something sooner or later them too, and thats done now so the next should look nice again

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.
