I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Dropped price down to $9.00 a kit after some calculating

    When you say ‘calculating’, do you mean ‘Crap, just realised that our knock-offs are way more expensive than Forge World’s?’

    Bad news: they still are mate.

      Eh, close enough. And chapterhouse’s look cleaner and come with the cool arm bits…forgeworld’s leave a lot to be desired. And CH uses better resin I think.

      I make 9 usd = £5.62 at todays XE rates versus FWs £15 for three sets of wings = £5 a set, not really that much more expensive when you get claws and head swaps from CW

      No idea on the quality comparison though

      Interesting that CW are marketing the kit as a specific conversion kit for a specific GW mini – don’t GW normally unleash the IP dogs when a company does that?

      • Kane

        Early morning post make CW = CH

      • 4tonmantis

        CH and GW are in an IP case already.. so either CH wins and this continues to stand or they lose and have to make reparations.. The point of their current case is that if they are making modifications FOR something, that this is comparable to a spoiler to a Honda Civic or a cell phone case for an iPhone.

    The dude that did Dark Tower and Before Ozymandias sculpted them? Sweet!
