Games Workshop has some new Chaos models available in their Advance Orders section for Warhammer Fantasy.

From the announcement:

From the magic-swept lands of the frozen north march the Warriors of Chaos, an indomitable race of battle-hungry killers and mutant monsters who fight for glory and the favour of bloodthirsty gods…

On Advance Order today are new Warriors of Chaos multi-part plastic kits and exceptionally detailed Citadel Finecast miniatures, as well as Warhammer Armies: Warriors of Chaos and a new Warhammer Battle Magic set.

    That’ll go GREAT with my McFarlane action figure collection!

    I don’t mind the figure at all. What I mind is that a Chaos army book is yet another book being released when they already had an update after Bretonians and Wood Elves. When you have army books that have skipped entire editions of the game, and keep on revamping army books that don’t need it…well, let’s just say they already lost me.

    And I LIKE Warhammer Fantasy. And I OWN a chaos warrior army. You would think I’d be all smitten, right?

    Hey, whatever. My rulebook for 8th edition was free. I buy models I like. Nobody plays WHFB around me that I care to play with and the people I care to play with play (and one guy has made) fantasy battle systems that are simply better. Good luck to those of you who can keep up. I can’t even do that for this game that I still like.

      You think that’s bad? There are already rumours circulating about 40k 7th Edition coming out next year. It fits the recent release structure, but would be far too soon unless they can get out a few more codexs in the next 12 months.

      Wait, you mean they do books for armies that sell and leave the other ones alone? Who could fault them for making that business decision. Not many people want to do that many Bretonnian figures because the heraldry and colors make them a pain. Most of the people around here don’t pick up wood elves because they don’t wanna build the terrain to make them effective. With so few players, updating them isn’t a big deal. Since the new edition rolled they’ve been focusing on the popular armies for updates.

    I like the models, I also like the army in general but the prices have seriously dampened my enthusiasm… This means that I’ll be spending the money elsewhere, more than likely on Kickstarter, Corvus Belli or Malifaux.

    The Dragon Ogres and Chariot look like a great place to start for some awesome converting but again, prices being what they are I think I’ll pass… at least for now >_>

    Way too expensive.

  • blkdymnd

    My god, $58 for a 40mm hero??? They are completely out of control now. This is ridiculous.

    • Marauder

      Even better yet what is even more ridiculous its that he’s 70CAD, and right now the dollars are pretty much at par.

        That’s disgusting

        • Kolonel K

          Throgg? Try $96 Aus. I can pick up a full Infinity army for less.

  • Bobofreak

    Like most of the models Vilitch and Throgg are the real stand outs for me.

  • Soulfinger

    I could use that Slaughterbrute in my D&D game for that encounter when I announce, “You are attacked by something silly looking with an awful name like the vent drink you’d order at an evil Starbucks.”

    Impressive models I have to admit, but how can even the WAUGHiest GW fanboy take seriously the S laughter Brute. I mean that’s just too funny.

    As someone who has not been interested in their stuff for a while, I have to admit with minis like Throgg they really show that they have stepped up their game when it comes to presentation. Awesome design and paint job. Jaw droppin’ price though.

  • Grindar

    Anyone else notice that GW has suddenly cranked up their Advance Orders up to a 1-week window? I noticed on dark angels but thought it was a fluke, maybe I got the word late.

    • cybogoblin

      It makes sense, in a way. Make the Advance Orders available on a Saturday, let people order in store, and you’re getting the Saturday shopper market (the same market they target with Saturday releases).

      It might also give international customers time to receive their models on time, too.

      • Grindar

        Oh it’s always been release on a Saturday. I just remember them used to taking preorders for like 3 weeks before product dropped.
