Default At last. Horus Heresy Raven Guard - Mor Deythan Strike Squad

Sure it's only one unit and they're as overpriced as the rest of the special units are becoming. But I quite like the models. And about time they got at least one unit. Transfers available as well.

So that's 10...for one SM model? I think whoever's in charge of GW's pricing is completely divorced from most peoples' reality.

Crack pipe pricing as usual but damn they are some shexhy miniatures.

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

Yeah. Expensive as hell, but I still want a unit of them. Time to start saving again

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Well I expect nothing less of FW pricing for Heresy models now. The Ultramarine dudes are more than that right?

Aye, but 'understandable'...I mean if the plastics are coming in the next 2/3 weeks as rumoured, the start up cost of a 30k army will dramatically decrease giving those who are hesitant or even balls-deep more disposable income to spend on special units like the Mor Deythan.

For example, say the average 10 tactical marines will cost 30 in plastic. It currently costs ~61, so you save 31. Now a Palatine Blade squad costs 33. Even if it goes up to 50 then I still save 14. And that's if I buy one Palatine squad for every 10 tacticals, which I won't. More like 1 Palatine squad for every 30-40 tacticals, so I actually save a lot more.

I understand the back-lash to the prices on their own but taken as a whole, compared to what we have had to pay for a full army in the past, we're still set for a massive discount, so I'm not bothered. Besides, I like the models.

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

Lovely minis, but nothing special, to be honest you could easily convert normal marines to those guys, and save your self a kidney

Yeah, the RG shoulder pads are nice, but on the whole a rather drab release. Also, I can't see a force that hunts from the shadows having any kind of white or red markings on their armour. For these guys to be realistic it'd be a black base coat and grey dry brush, and done.
