Default Plastic Techmarine somwhere in our future...

I went down to GW a few weeks ago, and got talking to the staff. We spoke about the metal models and then went on to talking about the thunderfire cannon. I asked about a plastic techmarine, and a man cut in, he went to GD and spent the whole day with the design team. He said GW were looking into it, and starting basic ideas. But it looks like it will be about somwhen, but its not gonna be until 2009, probably lateish, if not with the 2nd wave of marines.

Sounds cool

GREAT! Just what we need MORE plastic kits for the marines. I swear I will virus bomb GW if they release a plastic Tech marine before the new Eldar jetbikes! How about they do the Ork Wartrakk/Warbuggy or Obliterators in plastic?

Seriously though I bet that kit would be sick.

The Ork Warbuggy IS plastic...

Old, but plastic.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

I can't see the point. The current metal techmarine is quite a good model and it's not like many people use them.

I bought one of the current metal techmarines to use with the 'Ancients Assault Force' data sheet in Imperial Armor Apocalypse. Still haven't started working on him. If he was plastic he'd already be finished.

This would be sort of a nice afterthought to the new Marines range...but I kinda doubt it's anything more than that.

I mean, they're releasing another Techmarine model, and it's all-metal. I'm having trouble seeing a plastic release, even after the second-wave models hit.

That being said, I hope this turns out to be true. Speaking from personal experience, the current Techmarine in servo-harness kit is a bitch and a half to put together.

Most likely they will kept he kit they have and then make a plastic kit with servitors and charge 65 dollars for it.

that would be nice. it took me over an hour to assemble my direct techmarine. had to rubber band the parts together in the end and then spend forever shaving off the rubber band. it was torture. i hope it would have a thunderfire cannon plastic too and thus reducing the price perhaps.
