 lol lol

Although I actually quite like that. Not for 40K or VSF, just as a thing in itself and 68 isn't that bad a price really.

cheers

Dr F: Those are some seriously good builds and I have to agree that they are much better designs, in my opinion.

More Wood Elf stuff...

Wildwood Rangers = 23.50 for 10 (dual kit with EG below) Pic 1 Pic 2

Eternal Guard = 23.50 for 10 (dual kit with WWR above)  Pic 1 Pic 2

Wild Riders = 22.50 for 5 (dual kit with SotT below)  Pic 1 Pic 2

Sisters of the Thorn = 22.50 for 5 (dual kit with WR above)  Pic 1 Pic 2

I quite like these on the whole (Sisters notwithstanding), and I'm looking forward to seeing players do with them.

Also, the mounted kit was sculpted by Aragorn Marks which is interesting (to me) since I wasn't aware he was doing digital sculpting now.

Prices though... Hmm. Seems pretty expensive for a block of infantry, and even if the mounted troops are rarer unit choices fielded in smaller numbers they are pricey too.

This may be the sign of a bleed on the brain, but I think they are really quite nice - especially those Wild Riders. Why a Ranger requires a blade the size of a window sill is anyone's guess, however, and it's a pity they didn't feel inclined to make them a third of the size to keep things within sensible limits, but there we go. Overall I'm impressed and I think the price is a little high, but not outrageous.

Is someone in GW making good decisions?

I have a few of the current edition books, and after re-reading the HE and DE books last night I was impressed that they seemed well-balanced on the whole. So (some very silly costs aside)... maybe... yes?  o_o

Weapons-wise, nothing that can't be fixed with a sharp modelling knife and a file! ;)

Doubt it. The figs are still ridiculously expensive.
