Pretty darn good, whats the difference between DV and the regular game?

DV is just a basic set with two starter armies, a WH40K v6 - A5-  rulebook for a decent price. I had no Chaos nor Dark Angels Armies so I was tempted.

Well, I bought a box of five of those cultists for $10 and that convinced me to get two Dark Vengeance cultist sprues from Hoard O' Bits which was about $68 shipped for 40 cultists including two machine guns and two flame throwers. (I also got a box of 18 Hobbit goblins that will make good primitive mutants.) So that's my $100 for the month. I guess I will use the chaos cultists as wasteland raiders.  

That kind of hurts my ability to work on my death-cyborg warband idea or my D&D red box adventurer set idea in the short term. Such is the price of impulsiveness.

Now I want to get some Pig Iron 'ferals' and 'rebels' to make another "ugly" raider/scavenger band. But that will have to happen after my wallet regenerates.  That might be $150 or more to get a 40+ strong force. Yipes.

I might spend another $30 on a couple of boxes of Wargames factory orcs though. They look really nice for being so cheap.

I never did buy those Great Coat shock troopers they make either.

Or the defiance UAMC marines.  

So much cheap plastic and so little money and time!

I popped into GW on Friday while Christmas shopping just for old time's sake, and one of those nice GW Stepford Wives types gave me the hard sell and cracked open a box for me to have a look at the bits. The Dark Vengeance thing gets you a shedload of plastic figures (as artfully demonstrated by this thread), dice, templates, scenario book and a cut-down version of the 40K rulebook. You get all the rules, but not all the fluff and snazzy artwork that is in the hardcover edition.

I was pretty tempted, and he was a good salesman. Well, good enough that I walked out with a six quid box of those chaos cultists. They are such cute little fellas. :)


It's looking good, Sgt. Perry.

I really like these!

Actually, it also makes me wish that the two forces in DV were a little more balanced - losing 5 cultists to gain 5 of these would certainly have done that!

Still, I (finally) got my copy of DV and I think the models are superb. Zero interest in the game, but the models are amazing - in fact I think that DV and the WHFB starter (Island of Blood) are probably my two favourite GW products of recent times, and I wish all their plastics were that good quality, simple to assemble and dynamically-posed.

Anyway, good job with these, and thank you for sharing. ;)

Looking good, for starter set sculpts the cultists are amazing. Must of painted around 50 of them by now though, but what annoys me is the 5 Cultists box for 6 as its a odd mix of weapon options (2 with ccw and 3 with autos) but i see you converted a few to get around that :)

Absolutely, in order to have more variety, the best solution is to find some Dark Vengeance sprues. The 5 Cultists box offers very limited options.
