To be fair to GW, they "hype" was all online. It was the fan community getting over excited rather than GW going on about it. We can't blame them for our expectations!

Also: No mention of it being a limited release on the GW website. Wink

'The game in action' shots





I'm not putting down any money until I get to read some reviews of the rules, and hear confirmation that the miniatures are actually 40k scale.. but other than that, I'm liking what I'm seeing!

Are these figures solid cast or to be assembled, they do look awesome but that could be because the eavy metal painters have had a go at them, i am very tempted to buy this set though

The scale should be 40k scale. And By the looks of it it will be onepiece models. Maybe two due to swordarms, cannons...

@David...the pics are great. I am very impressed, especially with the dead marine in the chair. Granted, you will have to paint the models and you know the Eavy Metal more than likely painted these models but it seems SH has a fresh new look.

It looks like they put the tile pieces on foam core.

Well, that prediction held for about 5 hours. My box is preordered as well. The free postage sealed the deal. Brimstone on Warseer is saying they're proper 40k scale, so at least 50% of my demands were met Laughing

Well, everything my mate told me about the models was true. They all look great. I may have to starta very small Blood Angel army to justify buying the game just for cool models. Laughing

Anyone know how limited this release is? I am concerned that all available copies will be bought up during the preorder phase, since this is only a limited release. If I wait until September 1st to order, am I screwing myself? Any ideas.

Thanks

There are conflicting reports about how limited this is going to be. Some are saying it's limited to 20,000 copies and others to 35,000. My recommendation is that, if you really want it, place your order soon.

Of course, it could be a big old GW marketing scam. Scare people into pre-ordering by mentioning "limited stocks" and then, having seen the pre-order quantities, producing enough to fulfil the orders and then some.

Call me a cynic. Call me a bitter, old cynic if you must, but call me a bitter, old cynic who works in marketing and knows GW of old.

I invariably have the same reaction whenever I'm presented with "LIMITED EDITION! BUY NOW WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!" and that is "KEEP IT!". Suspect

Well - it does look cool. While I've always steered away from the 40K stuff, this would be a great intro for me. I don't really have time for another tabletop game, but I do love my board games! Also, it would get me some futureistic figures to try out DaBank's game bonus!

I think it's like $120 CDN. Too bad my birthday just came and went (though I've got about $30 birthday dollars left). I'll certainly see if I can drum up the funds. Unfortunately I just spent a bunch of cask on video games. Wii Sports resort = loads of fun, Street Fighter 4 PS3 = boring!

But it would be neat being one of them huge marine fellows wasting aliens...

Must sell body for money...
