An exclusive miniature in a box with 20 of the least tempting variant of plastic terminators and terminators as a whole. At least with the web-exclusive miniatures I could get the plastic crack I actually "needed" to go along with them. :cray: If he was in a single miniature clam pack I could have seen myself getting two copies instead of none.
Ah, well...

This confuses me, it really does. Plastic Terminator Captain? Good! The mini itself is decent enough, I personally still like the metal one more but it's a dam sight better than the SM Captains and I wouldn't have a problem including one in my force. Then... they make it exclusive to a box set only... da fuck? (A strike force that doesn't make a whole lot of sense either) and they market him as being UM Characterwhosamaflop... but he has no UM specific markings on him.

What the hell is the thinking behind it?

The thinking behind it is to allow non UM armies to use him, from a business standpoint what's the point in bringing out a non special character model that can only be used by UM players?

He looks ok but by bringing him out as a model you can only get if you buy a very expensive box set is a little counter intuitive, they would sell more if they sold him individually and make more money in the long run than trying to entice players to spend all their money on some models they don't need

In my most humblest of opinions

Can I just say that for all the great detail on that miniature, and it is good, that all it really has is more armor? Just add more plastic so we can pay more right GW?

Seriously I am not impressed. I wanted to see more artistic valuve, more creativity, than what is being offered here. Just another Calgar Model really. :(

I've never understood the reason why you would use a Terminator Captain. For fewer points you can give him Artificer Armor and he has the same survivability and can still Sweeping advance.

Someone has never heard of the 1st Company, or being "thematic" then.

I mean, it's a pretty sweet box and if I didn't already own everything in there but for the bird I'd snatch it up I'm a second, but that captain does nothing for it. You can basically make a better looking captain from bits of existing nator boxes. Needs more bells and whistles to really get me goin'.

This is just GW revisiting old ground, army boxes with limited edition were all the rage upto about 5 or six year's ago, they panned them because indies were buying them all up for trade price and splitting them up and flogging the contents on ebay, which lead to the eventual rule changes for traders not being allowed to break up sets or have ebay shops, loads pf indies have since bit the farm as they were not able to compete with the big boys huge discounts because they were shifting volume overseas....well we know the history. .

Anyway I have no doubt this chap will be very popular? Anything limited or restricted is hot property, the sooner GW learn that and start exploiting that the better for them it will be.
