The new plastic building-kits by Games Workshop: divine gift or overpriced piece of s**t?

Personally I prefer having a sh**y table made by me but I'm satisfied with it still, then buying Glue it yourself thing from Gamesworkshop Smile

It's more satifying to play with your own stuff Smile

Cheers,

I agree with you Hellfoot!

Apart from the fact that I find these plastic kits to be waaaay to expensive (they're worth 20€ max. and not 50€ !) and that they do not really blend in with the buildings you make yourself, it is much more rewarding to create your own buildings.

BTW: Have you seen this "Rune-stone-temple-kind-of-thing"? The one that GW sells with those plastic trees? *rrrmpf* Very Happy
WTF is this? I can make a whole Stonehenge for 5€ if I cut those out in Styrofoam myself! .... what a rip-off.

yea i saw lol, their pictures create our ideas Twisted Evil

I would prefer to spend like £50 on a vacuum cleaner for my mum as a gift (of sorts) and keep the styrofoam myself and make some ruins or somethin.

at least a vacuum cleaner has a Buy one (Vacuum) and get one free (Stryrofoam)

GW also has a buy one get one free offer....buy the set and get the trouble of assembling non matching parts free

Cheers

I don't like the stuff either. It's far to expansive for that what you get.
I think whoever buys the barricades and hedges-set is absolutly stupid, cause you can build the same in the time you spend cutting off the moldlines.
And the arcane ruins looks like Lego to me Very Happy

The plastic hills are another joke. EVERYONE can make a hill out of styrofoam for nothing, and they even look better, because GW offers only two different sorts of hills, so they will look all the same way.

Oh yes, I nearly forgot:
A few months ago you could read in the White Dwarf how to build craters for 40K.
Now they are going to sell craters. Question

In December the GW in Düsseldorf opens the Bitz-Box of the Store, so I take a lot of nice Bitz from the House-Spures for my Mordheim-Table. Some Bitz are very nice. An old clock, many little statues and lamps.

My houses are not so detailed like in Toms blog, but with this bitz they get a better look.
