    Well they’ve done it. 10 infantry models for $125.

      I’m not going to make up excuses for their prices, because they are still ridiculous. But it’s a bundle, which is not a deal in any way. You would be paying the same if you bought all the individual kits. Also it’s 7 infantry models and 3 characters. The huge price point comes in because you are buying all the characters at once. The 7 plague marines are $50, which is actually not bad for models their size, and for GW.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. I know. But having a Deathguard army, I just can’t justify buying the 5 new characters for $125 plus the 3/4 boxes of Deathguard that I’d want for $200. I mean all of that is just a fraction of an army. Just crazy to stomach.

      • BDub

        Explain why the Champion is $25 and is the same size/quality of sculpt with the exact same equipment at the one in the easy-build kit, which sell for $15 – including a spec weapon and normal plaguemarine.

        There is NO justification for either the pricing or SKU assortment in this range. Its a huge slap in the face for anyone that can actually do maths.

        • PRAY FOR MOJO

          I’m also upset that GW is selling $25 characters, but there is a justification. The cost of a plastic kit is split between the large, one-time cost for design and tooling, and then the very small cost for producing each actual product.

          A single mono-pose character usable by a niche army is unlikely to sell many copies, so they need to try to set a price that will get their money back from the relatively low number of sales.

          I still blame GW for not using metal any more, screwing up the quality of finecast, and not releasing character kits similar to the unit kits, with more customization and a reason to buy more than one copy.

    • BDub

      On 7 Plague Marines in the box.
      I was a bit ticked off about it too. The fact that they are trying to sell me a champion and a standard bearer as two seperate models @ $25 ea. is incredibly insulting.

      • ZeeLobby

        It’s pretty nutts. But I expect that to be how it is going forward. I’d gladly take the sometimes awkward command sprue back any day.

  • Maybe it’s just me but the paint job on the Nurgle figures is not good. For a group that’s supposed to be about pestilence and disease, they sure look nice and clean.

      How ’bout that? 😉

      • Adequately grimy and bleak.
