Games Workshop has more Wood Elf models available to pre-order over in their webshop.
So, the Basic units are $39. Is this only the preorder price, and then they go to $50 or $60 like the dark elf executioners and witch elves or is $39 the real price? I like the rangers.
I think it is the “real” price, so much cheaper than the Witch Elves 🙂
GW doesn’t do pre-order deals. They sometimes do bulk deals, but even some of their bulk deals cost the same as buying each one at full retail.
GW’s ‘core’ units tend to be priced lower than the ‘elite’ units. I think $39 is their current ‘core’ price (Space Marine Tactical squads are the best measure for this).
However, I was honestly surprised to see that the giant Treeman came in at less than $80. For as large a minis as it looks to be, $61 just seems low for GW pricing.
Maybe they are listening to the constant moaning about their prices? It would be a nice change of pace.
We built the freeman this saturday and it was smaller than the bigger ones for other armies. Slender and not that tall, but really great details. So i think the price is according to content.
Mmm, freeman, should read Treeman 😉
While building the Treeman, it was being narrated by Morgan Freeman.
