I have been waiting for these since the codex came out. I was tempted to order some of puppets war wraiths but I am glad I didn't. While the Puppets War wraiths look nice I think having the offical model will make it easier for my opponents to identify my guys. Lets look at the picks.
This model is pretty nice. I even don't mind the driver like so many other fanboys do. Sure it could have been another Canoptek creature but I still think it looks good. for $50 (47 actually) I think it is a bit expensive but I am not surprised. It is a bit more expensive than a dread so no surprise on the price.
this model is a big improvement over the tomb spyder model. I don't run these guys so I don't think they will be must buys right out of the gate but I will probably get a could get a couple after the rest of my purchases. $33 is what I expected to pay for one of these. People were crazy to think they would put 3 in a box.
These guys look ok. I was never sold on using them in my games. 3 minis for $41 is decent. Actually cheaper than the space marine equivalent. I have read that they can be useful in games but without models I just stayed away. I don't like to proxy too much. Now I don't have an excuse. I will have to try them out.
These are the guys I have been waiting for. This was the guy I was going to order from puppets war this week. Now I guess I will order the rough rider bikes from them :) These guys come in a box of 3 for $47. It is cheaper than the new wolves but more expensive than the tyranid warriors.I was hopping they would be $33 but I am not supprised.
They look cool. much better than the old metal model. I had scraped together some cheap guys to proxy but I was so ashamed of them I just quit using them. I can now hold my head high and give them another try.
There are a few other guys coming out in finecast. Special characters and some upgrades. I hope my store gets a heavy destroyer upgrade so I can see how straight it is. I recently bought 2 of the heavy destroyer but I might pick up the upgrade if they appear straight. More than likely I will just use the metal ones and never put in the rods :)
I am disappointed that there are no Flyers. They need the night scythe for transport and the doom scythe for the 3d6 line of doom! I still don't know if I would use the doom scythe but the night scythe might be nice. drop out some immortals by an objective and start shooing up guys with the destructor cannon. Oh well. I am happy to get my wraiths.
