Didn't GW just redo the entire spacemarine range within the past year or so? Why are they already releasing new models such as the new Veteran Squad?
I understand the Masters of whatever stuff, but what is up with the vets?
fun and apoc. simple really
are you complaining?
Wash: This landing is gonna get pretty interesting.
Mal: Define "interesting".
Wash: [deadpan] Oh God, oh God, we're all going to die?
I really like the new vets. Although they arent a legal squad as a whole I personally think they are awesome minis. Ive used them to fill a few veteran sergeant posts in my tac squads. Adds a bit of variety and character instead of the run of the mill powerfists that I had before. I dont have a problem with Games Workshop releasing any new Space Marine models. Especially when they're as good as their latest.
It's a long standing issue that GW tends to redo Space Marines FAR more than any other race, in both the minis range and the Codex.
Space Marines are basically the main sellers of their merchandise, as it appeals to most beginners and the younger demographics. Therefore, the minis are more likely to get changed than say, Dark Eldar or Witch Hunters.
However, the current Tactical Marine basic setup has been the same since third edition. The box was repacked with Melta Guns and Plasma Guns, but in general, the box has remained the same.
i'm not complaining, just i wish they would redo something like the pred which is IMO one of the worst SM models, but still not bad.
You mean the pred that was redone with the bulkier rhino chasis? That is actually a lot newer than a lot of the tactical squads etc? I personally quite like the look of it and if I had to pick a model to be redone I would have to go for the bike squads
the bikers are some of my favorite models... not that they couldn't look better, just the basic design is awesome...
i think they need some new units that look different then a normal marine, for some more variety, and more chapter specific units, like BT TS and such
I too love the biker models, but I see where you're coming from.
