Those Dark Angel / Crimson Slaughter figs are selling for $140. Wow.

I honestly still have the 6th ed Limited set, and was recently thinking of getting rid of it. I love the concept of the game, its actually a near perfect set. I love the narrative of the scenarios (hate when those aren't included like in 5th), the models were great, and I even bought the model and rules for the Aspiring Champ when they released it for 7th. Also bought and read the Novella, which I liked. But beyond starting to paint the models, I never did anything with it. I never bought a single thing to expand the collection or edition, and then GW released 7th like 2 years later and that was the straw that broke the camels back. By the time 8th came out I was over keeping up with 40k.

Here is the crazy thing, I still have 3rd edition. I actually have two sets - one unopened tucked away in a closet. The rulebook has starter lists for all the armies at the time. That is what I have kept as my go-to game. Sure I don't have the rules for the newer models but I find what rules I have are more than enough - essentially enough to play whatever models I have. Plus when the models started getting too big for the gaming table I was starting to lose interest.

I printed out copies of all the armies lists and rules from the 3rd ed codexes and binded them for shits and giggles, so if I ever really wanted to, I could explore more options, but I have stuck with only buying models that are in the black book army lists. And over time, like I did recently with WFB, I have far more unbuilt 40k models than I do built and painted.

But I have a lifetime of work to do, so I don't need to keep up. I also hate the Primaris. In my little world I have more than enough to keep me occupied.

So I had given thought to getting rid of the Dark Vengeance set, as I am not intersted in 6th anymore, but then I see the rising prices for minis and like this set, and think, just hold on to them in case you want to build them (they don't take up a lot of room). I wouldn't be surprised to see the same model count sell for $280 some day, and I will def not be buying minis then.

Its amazing that GW is more popular than ever yet I have lost interest in keeping up with them. I am just over the continuous creative destruction, being disappointed great games aren't supported, or getting sucked into buying a new model that doesn't really belong on a 4X4 gaming board.

The new Adeptus Titanicus is probably the last game I ever buy from them, and I still havent done anything with mine.

Honestly I think in many ways GW is in a new golden age. Current Iron Hands nonsense aside, 40k tabletop is the healthiest and most balanced it's practically ever been. They're making bank and churning out tons of great models. There's more then a few duds in the process but that's pretty normal. Not like the old days didn't see weird or crappy models.

I like this new made to order method, and I think it'll help put a dent in some of the ludicrous prices being asked for on ebay.

Not to mention the rebirth of the specialist games division. I've almost had more games of Kill Team and Blackstone Fortress then I have of the main line, and the Necromunda campaigns at my club run out of seats within 24 hours of going up.

Primaris aren't to everyones taste but they're about some of the only space marines I like. Them and the deathwatch stuff looks pretty awesome imo. Not a huge fan of the jumpy bois for primaris though. I kind of like the idea of a jump back heavy weapon, but not as fond of the look of these ones.

That's the great thing about this hobby. Tons of ways for everyone to like this. To each their own awesome hobby time.

Welcome to the fold comrade! I never got into 40k for most of the time I was into fantasy, but you still end up reading so much of its lore from white dwarfs or whatever. When I moved my main gaming buddy became my brother and he only played 40k. And when I get into stuff I tend to dive right in. So that meant all kinds of homebrewing, writing, army building, etc.

It really helps that the galaxy is so big you can come up with whatever kind of themes you want, for whatever you want.

Looks like we all switched places. I was into 40k for 20 years while you guys were into Fantasy, and we flipped.

Good to see they aren't giving up on multi part kits, although the question is are they transferable from one kit to another.

If you mean for conversions? I would say yes I have kit bashed so many in my 6 months of 40k HAHAHA

Kit bashing is the best part of the hobby in my opinion. My son loves it too.

He became really happy when we found out that we had enough old bits too make a complete Space Marine so he did a Veteran sergeant for his Kill team. The rest of the team are Primaris Intercessors and Reivers, the easy build ones. The Veteran Sergeant is the only normal Marine but he is a dead mean old grumpy Son of a bitch of an Iron Hand so he ain΄t taking no shit from noobs.  :icon_mrgreen:

And his orkz are one kustom bitz team of killaz.

Them Sisters are so sweet! I need to buy a box of them but I fear the price is a atrocious  :icon_sad:

I really want a Kill team of them, though.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

I'm in the same boat. I like the idea of picking up a basic box to make two squads of five, with enough options for kill team. They can bodyguard my missionary from Blackstone Fortress for some narrative games.

As long as the price is decent anyway.
