    Holy crap! Scaverous is a $40 BLISTER pack! I think PP has finally outpaced GW pricing!

    • Zac

      Scaverous is pretty darned big though. As well, PP tend to not increase old prices but bump prices of new releases.

    • djwetmouse

      Isn’t this around the same size of a greater daemon, and those start at $50?

      • Veritas

        You can’t fit a greater demon in a blister. I’ve always considered the border between box and blister at roughly $25. There are exceptions, but usually not too extreme. Even a $25 blister has to be something pretty special in my opinion. A $40 blister made me do a serious double take. That’s extreme. I mean, he’s still a medium based figure, right? That means Scaverous is probably about as tall as Venethrax, just much bulkier.

          The blister part is a typo. According to the page for Scabby:

          “Packaging: Box”

          Hi all. The information stated is incorrect. Scaverous is most certainly in a box, not a blister. And while he is mounted on a 40mm base, he stands as tall as a Slayer and is easily the largest medium based model we have ever done. Our Creative Director Ed Bourelle will actually be devoting an Insider post about Scaverous’ long road from concept to creation next week which will include comparison shots with other models in the line to really demonstrate his size.

          Cheers!

            The information stated is incorrect

            Have you sent an update out to your distributors? That info was from a distributor website so there might be a lot of incorrect posts about it

          • pps_will

            Updates are being sent now. I should have been more clear about it being the original source material, not the reporting 🙂

            Thanks!

          • Zac

            I didn’t think that was the case Will 🙂

  • I’m in awe of the pricing as well, which is annoying. However, I’m sure we can compare him to Terminus in some regards to size to, which in my mind, alleviates some of that sticker shock.

    When I see the price compared to the new warcasters in other factions, though, in this release wave, it just doesn’t seem fair. lol

    • cybogoblin

      Khador feels you pain. One of our ‘casters is a freaking heavy ‘jack, it’s hard to get much bigger than that.

  • He’s a big piece, and the central piece in the force a player would use him with. He’s comparable in my eyes to a Heavy ‘Jack, so I am comfortable with that price point.
