The starter sets to me are always a little insulting...while granted they are not brilliant models most of the time, it's GW saying "hey look, you could buy/field a very cool army for about $80..."....but everything else we'll sell you will be 15 year old FineCast molds at $40 per 5 guys.

Those cultists look perfect for Post Apocalypse gaming...here's hoping someone buys a few sets and sells sprues individually online  lol

I don't get the part where they're all completely beefy and muscles all over. I thunk of cultist a bit less working out at the gym and little more human rats.

I already pre-ordered a bunch of cultists from sellers on eBay. There are a few shops (pre) selling them at the moment.

In regards to the type of tomahawk, necrocannibal has the right idea! The modern versions are used for entrance tools, escape and evasion, and close quarter combat. I highly recommend that everyone have one in their Zombie Survival Kit!!!!   lol

Ha...perhaps maybe a Chain Tomahawk??? That'll fit in nicely with 40K.

On topic: I love those Cultists and even though the Helbrute is really over the top, I still like it.

The cultists look suitable for a post-apoc (mad max/Doomsday style)game.  If ammo is scarce then melee weapons make more sense.  I could fit them into some of my games, but outside of post-apoc contexts they are pretty dumb looking.  I don't play much in the 40K sandbox even though I use some of their old models in FUBAR games.
This is my boomstick!

hm is there anything really new in there?
Terminators, Space Marines, Cultists...seen those things 1000 times before.
Looks like the usual stuff with slightly different plastic minis...
...same game, same old ideas?

Still have my first edition Rogue Trader (fun to read, terrible to play I admit)
The last rules I looked (5 ed or so) at where just designed to sell minis, but not playable...

Maybe I am wrong but this looks boring

6th edition is closer to RT or 2nd edition than the last few.

I ordered the box set last weekend. I was resisting for as long as I could, but those Terminators look so nice I just had to. I think these newest Terminator models have a lot more character then the old ones did.

Besides, I'm sure I can find a home for the Chaos stuff. (I shouldn't tease, because I don't plan on getting rid of them. Too many other uses.)

Got our copies in at work yesterday, I'm tempted to get one for the Chaos stuff. Even though I have no use for them and can't think of anything to do with them other than marvel at how nice they are...  :?
