  • Griffin

    Another garbage article from the clueless idiots at bols…

    • HeadHunter

      Then WHY do you bother to follow the site? Nowhere else to seek attention?

    • abaddonsmummy

      Ok, i’ll just nip to the Griffin tabletop news page……… oh wait.

    • COsteve

      That seems a little over-aggressive. I like these previews.

    • Geko747

      Idiot

  • J Mad

    *Teases 3 Codex* Releases AoS and Imperial name characters
    Thanks GW.

  • bomster

    In what way are dates and prices CONFIRMED by NUMEROUS INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS when they‘ve been published in White Dwarf two weeks ago?
    Jesus, BolS, pace yourself or you might get a heart attack from all the excitement…

    • Rahl

      Obviously, they are the industry professionals and they just got their WD today.

  • Boondox

    Eisenhorn is getting some converting to make him as awesome as he needs to be. That baton is getting replaced with a sword or the primaris chaplain pimp cane. Why do the sculptors at GW think that anyone walks with a pistol held that way?

    • Averam

      The model is based on the original Eisenhorn artwork, used for the cover of the omnibus edition of the 3 novels. http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/902b0334db60426760c670bbebed3ee3746f8110ecdb7b99fe33a03862fbb977.jpg

      • Boondox

        Why do the artists think anyone walks with a pistol that way?

        • vlad78

          lol

        • Averam

          Did a GIS for “Person walking with pistol” and the second image is this – well would you look at that, he’s walking with the pistol held exactly like Eisenhorn.

          • ZeeLobby

            Lol. Yeah. I didn’t know there was a “way” to walk with pistols.

          • Boondox

            Guess you had to google it because you’ve never carried or used a pistol yourself?

          • LankTank

            We don’t all live in rat-holes and need guns.
            In NZ we use beer. Have a problem? Drink a beer. Want to difuse a problem? Give a beer.
            See better to be a country of high functioning alcoholics… right?

        • HeadHunter

          Have you ever actually *handled* a firearm?

          • memitchell

            “Firearm safety” is a top priority for all Inquisitors.

          • Boondox

            Yes I have. I’m an Army veteran and former Law Enforcement with a large collection of firearms and reload my own ammo too. Carrying a handgun in that manner does not make any sense in the 30+ years of experience I have with firearms. I never did it and neither did any of the professionals I worked with.

          • LankTank

            Yeah cause let’s compare the accurate procedure & maintenance of military personnel and equipment to representations of space elves/orks/giants/paladins pew pew pew monsters and angel with chainsaws.

          • DJ860

            It’s almost as if it’s 40,000 years in the future that firearms might behave differently.

            Thanks armchair expert. This is Warhammer, not Firearms Monthly magazine.

          • Averam
        • Scott Staten

          Partially for “Cool” Factor I suppose, partially due to the limitations of the moulds.

          • LankTank

            But don;t you know it’s far cooler to have your pistol in a secure holder like a real life professional? Possibly even concealed!
            Instead like a REAL enforcer, he could have a pen and paper in his hands taking… NOTES =o
            Instead we get this bad@$$ model. When will the sculptors learn that being cool doesn’t make you cool?!

          • HeadHunter

            What’s the WYSIWYG for concealed carry? 😀

          • LankTank

            In this pistol holster is my PLASMA CANNON.
            Actually this starts getting a little dodgey =s

            “It’s so big!”

        • generalchaos34

          from an artistic perspective that way you can see the outline of the gun and give it a menacing vibe, as opposed to it looking like a metallic line with no features. Its not that artists think that’s realistic its simply being able to communicate a three dimensional object across a two dimensional medium, as well as communicate the threat the gun poses to the viewer

          • Exactly, you hold the gun that way when you want the gun to be noticed. It’s more menacing as the gun shape can be easily perceived.

        • Me

          Maybe he is getting ready to pistol whip someone (or thing)? Other than that, he probably recently used it, does not want to holster it, and has no current target. However, since this is supposed to be happening in the “Everything is Awesome (or we’ll torture/maim/kill you)” universe of 40K, my guess would be for pistol whipping.

  • Fergie0044

    Interesting to see some ‘start collecting’ boxes with no troop choices in them.

    • Kefka

      yeah, unless they spontaneously rework the Kharadron list their SC! box is probably the worst, next to the SE one with the two useless Paladins

      • Fergie0044

        Eh, I actually see it as more aimed towards people who already have a Kharadron collection rather than those just starting. (Kinda undermines the name of the box set though) I’d personally love a death guard or Ad Mech box that doesn’t have any troop choices, which I already have enough of.

    • Bakvrad

      Technically you don’t need troops… to start playing, you just need minis and an opponent

  • Averam

    Don’t know if it’s just me but I’m not seeing a price for Eisenhorn. Anyone know how much it’ll be? Preferably in £.

    • Wayne Hood

      £20, it’s a boxed resin character with rules included

      • Averam

        Thanks – cheaper than I’d thought but I was really hoping it’d be plastic as I’ve already got a resin Eisenhorn who is unpainted due to my dislike of painting resin! I’ll still be picking this up though.

        • NeinNeinNein

          So you will have two Eisenhorn who are unpainted due to your dislike of painting resin, got you.

          • Averam

            Nah they’ll both end up painted – the official one before the uh, less official one I’d say. I dislike resin but not enough to not paint it at all!

  • Jamie Martin

    Female Space Marines!

  • Stefan Barton-Ross

    Well, I dunno about you guys but in Australia the contents of that Kharadron box would retail at $264 individually and they’re $140 together. That’s the closest thing to a 50% discount which, as far as I know is the best value I’ve ever seen in a GW batallion/battleforce going back to when I started playing two decades ago.

    It doesn’t help that the overlords are stupid overpriced, but this is a good way of getting a lot of the price-inaccessible kits (floaty boys and gunny boys) to flesh out your core list for a really solid price.

    • CloakingDonkey

      holy crap $140… that’s a lot of money.

      • NeinNeinNein

        140 AUD $, different currency.

      • abaddonsmummy

        Yes, but in Australia that will buy you 4 Kangaroos and give you enough change for 2 ‘tinnies’.

    • ZeeLobby

      And that’s the justification of the getting started boxes, haha. Then you go and buy the stuff not in them and by the end you’ve still spent a ridiculous amount of money. But if you gotta play them it’s def a good deal.

  • JL

    Glad we got a new Stormcast box. Seems were getting a little neglected.

    • COsteve

      I don’t think you can call an army that’s had 3 battletomes (including the original Extremis)and more than 5 boxed sets (starter, start collecting, blightwars, new start collecting, Thunder & Blood) neglected when other armies don’t even have 1 of those things.

      • HeadHunter

        I think the sarcasm, like those Gryphons, sailed right over your head…
