Carcharodons: Red Tithe (Hardback)

60040181237_carcharadonsredtithea5hbeng01

The defenders of the Imperium will clash head-on with Abaddon’s Forces and Cadia will be changed forever…

  • Lord Elpus

    I hope that’s white Hair the bodyguard , and not that Celestines’ pigeons have been busy….

  • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

    Aww, no Gangs of Commoragh yet.

    • Old zogwort

      Soon

  • Jesse Cavazos

    I didn’t realize Magos Gargantua was so big. What, did he go to the forge world and say “Give me a body that could brawl a dreadnought”?

    • ZeeLobby

      Everythings big these days. Wait to be excited when something is small!

      • CthulhuDawg

        I heard a rumor that GW deliberately went with redoing Adeptus Titanicus instead of EPIC because it would be a direct competitor of 40k. Who knows if that is true or not however.

    • OldHat

      I got my Scoria stand in until FW drops him, that is for sure.

  • Artyom Trityak

    Love this models but pack a bit too expencive

    • OldHat

      Do you see the detail? The size of that Magos? This is 5 super high quality plastic kits for $80. Most places do 20% off, so this is a decent price if you want them all. And you can split it with others who might only want part of it. They will likely be way more expensive when they go to individual clampacks.

      • ZeeLobby

        I think it depends on if you’d use all 3.

        • OldHat

          I am splitting the box. Buddy wants the ladies, I want the Magos. With a fair discount from an online retailer, I have no doubt it will be the best way to go. So there is that option, if you don’t want everything.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. True. In my case the only model my group would be interested in is celestine, so we have to find more

          • luke snell

            I’ll gladly take the vampire hunter inquisitor if you need justification to buy the kit 😀

          • Shawn

            I’d be interested in the Magos and the inquisitor, maybe. It would depend on their rules and if I can use them in other armies.

      • Mira Bella

        Yeah it’s a mass produced Item made from one of the cheapest materials known to Mankind.
        So cheap in fact that there is a island of it floating in the Atlantic the size of Europe.

        • OldHat

          Really ignorant comment. You clearly don’t know what goes into injection molded plastics. From designing, scultping, making the mold, and all the other peripheral costs, it isn’t about the cost of plastic that determines the price. It is how they make that end result that determines that. Plastic is chosen because it is the optimal product for good detail and mass production.

          • Mira Bella

            Did I lie? Is plastic expansive?
            Do they cast it by hand?
            No. So while im aware that the main cost is comes from scultping and tooling my point still stands.
            Once you got the molds it’s cheap as chips to produce the miniatures.
            If a model is 1-2 Inches bigger it hardy justifies the increased price.

          • OldHat

            Really? Cute “gotcha” post. But still wrong. The models may be “cheap as chips” to produce after the mold is ready, but the costs all need to be paid for still. It might takes thousands and thousands of units to recoup the investment. And they need to turn a profit and cover extraneous costs not even andssociated with the manufacturing (import/export fees and customs, freight costs, storage, packing, labor). The market and their production costs dictate price, so just because you feel something doesn’t justify it, doesn’t mean you are right.

          • Mira Bella

            Eh I’m sorry but for me I’m the only one who decides if something is worth a certain price or not.
            Everyone gets to decide that for themself.
            If you feel these mass produced plastic miniatures are worth the price, well then more power to you!
            I won’t come around and bash you for it.
            I replied to you because you replied to to someone who considers them to be quite pricey with “Look how big he is”!
            Like that 2 Inches would make a big price difference in production.

          • OldHat

            Your justification to purchase a model does not impact the price. You are talking about its value to you vs the market price (what I am talking about). They are not the same.

            Also, it isn’t just 2″ taller. That misses the mark entirely. It is a big model lavished with detail. The designers spent a lot of time on that, the tooling took extra work, and so on. That does justify the price, though it may not be a good value to you. To me, I see that gorgeous model in a pack with other gorgeous models and see a perfectly acceptable price for product. I was justifying that price to the OP, because it isn’t like isn’t is 5 mediocre, tiny and undetailed models. The was my point.

          • Mira Bella

            It’s not for you to decide if the price is justified.
            Nobody can comment on that without knowing how much the production actiually costs.

            Yes I don’t consider them to be of good value for me.
            You consider them to be of good value to you.
            That is Fine.
            I really think anything has been said.

          • OldHat

            It isn’t, it is up to GW. I only determine it’s value to me, as I said. And to me, the price is fine for the value. The quality speaks for itself on these gorgeous models. If you don’t like it, don’t by it. But don’t throw out wrong/misleading comments. Take that saltiness elsewhere, seriously.

          • Mira Bella

            Exactly! It’s up to GW to decide that. They know the numbers. They will know how much they sold.
            It’s ok if you consider them worth the price to you.
            I don’t. That is also ok.

            I’m sorry but I don’t think you are in a position where you can tell me what Websites I’m allowed to comment on and how to do that.
            Seems like you consider yourself to be way more Important or influential then you actually are.

            Or in other words.
            “YOU HAVE NO POWER HERE!”
            😀

          • Red_Five_Standing_By

            The mold itself can cost upwards of a hundred thousand dollars.

            GW is only getting 40 bucks-ish off of this kit, so they need to sell at least 2,500 just to recoup the costs for the mold, then you have to worry about the underpaid sculptor, the guy who fits the pieces onto a sprue in CAD, the marketing, the packaging, the import/export fees, etc.

            These models are indeed not cheap to make.

          • NikosanPrime

            What he said!

        • Tom Godwin

          You also dont understand that garbage ‘island’ is also an area of increased surface waste and not a solid land mass.
          For further burns see below.

          • Mira Bella

            Im Sorry but I don’t know what you are trying to tell me.
            For further burns see below?
            I think I won that argument very handy the second he tired to tell me what I’m allowed to do on the Internet.

            Alternatively in the Moment where he tired to tell me he was talking about the market price/value and a comment later somehow switched to personal value.

            It’s amazing how thin skinned People get when you suggest that a certain product might not be of good value for oneself.
            I really shouldn’t be suprised since this is an “Old hat” for BoLS. 😉

  • SilentPony

    Red Tithe ended up being really disappointing.

    • OldHat

      Say it ain’t so! 🙁

      • SilentPony

        Oh the story is fine and all, but its another of those ‘GW doesn’t understand numbers’ situations. Like without spoiling, the cost in equipment and soldiers the Sharks spend to recruit more youths FAR outweighs the number of youths they get. And somehow they think its a fair trade.

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          That’s the way the Imperium rolls. Money is no object, really.

          • SilentPony

            To be fair its not so much the money as the cost in life. Like if you loose 40+ Marines to recruit 10 or so youths, that’s not good math, especially if the Chapter needs more Marines.

          • NikosanPrime

            Yeah, that has been the biggest problem with GW, writers. They act like everything is Blackhawk Down. Especially when’s you consider that less than half of those kids is going to make it through the training process. Especially the way the Sharks do their training.

            One of these days I am going to finish writing my own codex. I am not going to write in anything over powered, at least not from my point of view, but I am going to write in an intelligent and viable recruitment and training room regime.

          • Red_Five_Standing_By

            Oh, never mind, that’s dumb. Marines are worth more than anything. Don’t waste their lives.

    • Robbie MacNiven

      It isn’t just about the potential aspirants though – the entire nomad predation fleet needs servicing, and the Carcharodons are far outnumbered by their serfs and slaves. The 30-ish battle brothers lost is worth the 30,000 inmates taken to keep the fleet going, and through it the Chapter.

      • SilentPony

        But they’re a space marine chapter! Serfs don’t matter because Serfs don’t fight! Only Space Marines matter.
        And it wasn’t 30, it was more like 40, including 5 veteran terminators(and their geneseed because the Night Lords specifically destroyed them), several veteran sergeants, and the 3rd entire Scout contingent. And the Chief Librarian himself said he doubted 3 dozen of the recruits would survive to reach Scout. Even on a Scout for Recruit metric they came out the worse for it, and that’s not counting the 1st company vets, officers and battle brothers.
        It would have worked better as 2-4 squads, and their entire goal was the psychic boy, the rest of the slaves be damned. An untainted geneseed compatible psychic is worth some fuss. But sacrificing 40 battle bros to get, lets be generous and assume 1/3 of the recruits make it to full Bro, 10 battle bros is poor planning.

        If I were any other Space Shark captain I’d have Sharr’s hands cut off, eyes ripped out, chainaxe smelted down to slag and sentenced to continue being 3rd Captain as a terrible wretched example of the cost of sacrifice without gain.

        • Robbie MacNiven

          Serfs do matter though, and they do fight – without their fleet a Space Marine Chapter is nothing, and that’s even truer when it comes to the Carcharodons. Like any soldier, even the mightiest Space Marine is completely worthless without the logistical effort that feeds, arms, armours him and gets him to where he needs to be. There wouldn’t be a single functioning Chapter in existence without their serfs, and for the Carcharodons there’s almost no way to replenish them outside the Tithes. It’s fine saying only the warrior matters in war, but if he can’t fight, he becomes worthless.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Splitting the box set with a friend. I get Greyfax and the saint, gets the centaur, lol

  • Badgerboy1977

    Absolutely love the Ad Mech fella, quite possibly my favourite mini they’ve produced to date and almost the epitome of 40k to my eyes which I’d personally say is very good thing indeed.

    Also a good price especially from a discounter for models of this size, quantity and quality.

  • Snord

    I think these models encapsulate all the best things about the WH40k aesthetic. The Magos is awesome – although maybe a bit overdone (as if the sculptors are showing off how much stuff they can cram onto a plastic model). And I’ve always felt that the Sisters were one of the best portrayals of women in this kind of setting – recognisably female but not sexualised. Hopefully, these are a test to see if there is enough demand to justify a whole plastic Sisters range. These will be the first WH40k models I buy in a long time.
