£70 for 20 guard Ouch, thats a shame because i really like the models. The tanks are a bit strange looking though :)

In my opinion FW should really rethink their prices if they are offering whole armies rather than one off center piece models. They are not made of gold and other companies making resin are nowhere near that price.

The vorax look amazing, but I'm already trying to picture a bit I could use to replace the heads... maybe cyberwolves or something like that that's less insectile.

I wanna see the stats for this new Questoris, so I can decide which one I get as the centerpiece for a Mechanicum army.

I've never understood how they can price Guardsmen at that much when they know for a fact you need a lot more of them than you would space marines for example.

The forgeworld site is being... frustrating. Where can I buy that IA vol 13 etc, plus maybe a T-shirt or 2?.... Ok, 10 T-shirts. Don't judge me.

I think the t-shirts are only available at events, I'd love them to but not going to warhammer fest out of protest :/ The IA Vol 13 will be made available to order at some stage as it's not event only.

As a quick comparison;

Legiones Astartes Tactical Squad = 12.5ppm, 5 Man Tactical Squad, x4 = £132 = £6.60/model = £0.53 per point
2x Astra Militarum Infantry Squad = 5ppm, 1 20 man Solar Auxilia Squad = £68 = £3.40/model = £0.68 per point

In this most basic form, there is a ~35% mark up on Solar Auxilia units - and Space Marines have the "advantage" of spending more points on smaller squad sizes (2x 10 Man squads is 15ppm, making it even cheaper), and with access to things like Primarchs (Horus is £62, and 500pts - or ~£0.12 per point).

Solar Auxilia just aren't cost effective, when you consider that their tanks are also that much cheaper - basilisks are what? 115-125pts for a BS3 version? There's £0.48 per point, compared to something like a Spartan - which for £101 can hit 390pts - or £0.26 per point.

I've never really looked into it that deeply, but holy shit - a 35%+ mark up for comparative prices? And I thought 30K was expensive enough.

And that is why I tend to play armies that are either heavily vehicles, or giant robots like Tau. I've never liked armies with lots of models, mostly from the wallet perspective. High Elves were bad enough with all those archers.

30k isnt for people who are price sensitive, forge world has really always been that way to be fair, if you crack out a calculator before a FW purchase I would say you cant afford it ( I dont mean you directly, I mean in general)

But these are official 30k guard minis , its what people asked for and thats the price, they will sell by the truck load

I'd maybe try to do an elite Imperial Army force to cut down on the models, hopefully their rules ain't like the general guard where for one normal troop choice you need around 25 models and the points for them barely take up a 5th of the force.

I'm not really about those shirts. Have seen better fan based shirts on sites like redbubble. GW should think about outsourcing and commissioning designs - however i guess that would mean removing some $ from their grubby fingers. :laugh:

I'd ask someone to pick me up one of the Death Guard/XIV Legion T shirts in the biggest size possible, if that wouldn't mean giving money to the empire of evil that is Games Sweatshop.
Make that medium, and I agree with you fully..... :)

By not selling them online and making them "event only" items they are loosing a lot of potential profit.
