I'm an Ork player, so I'm not exactly familiar with how much the typical IG box/sprue costs, but I was thinking about getting some of their Heavy Weapons stuff to Konvert/Kustomize some of my Orks Guns.
So my question is: How much is this Sprue worth?
Warhammer 40K Imperial Guard Heavy Weapons Team - eBay (item 250368309569 end time Feb-11-09 077:33 PST)
I'm not sure I'd want to pay $10, and I'm not sure if that's the whole box or just some of the Sprues. What's the original price on that?
In pounds, you can get three teams for £ 20 (6 men) with three heavy weapon sprues.
or, one team for about £ 8 (who would buy that?)
I'de go mug a guardsman for spares. That seems too expensive to me.
A new heavy weapons team is $13. A heavy weapon squad is $35.
just pay the $13 for new or personally i would pay the $35 for what is essentialy 9 heavy weapons team, out of one box i made, 3x mortar 3x heavy bolter 3x rocket launcher and still had tonnes of crap left over :/ (includi8ng lascannons and autocannons). Probly the best value kit there is
Anyway, if you wait a while, a new guard box will be released with 8 guardsmen and 1 heavy weapon team for $20.
Alot of players only make three heavy weapons teams per box, so they should have lots of spare bits, just ask around. Also, Gameworshops stores have bitzs boxes, you can look in one of those for the pieces you need.
wtf! thats horrible.
is it 8 guard + 1 heavy weapon (i.e. 8 men) or 8 guard + 1 heavy weapon team (i.e 10 men)
either way is fail. WHY GW WHY!
id sugest mugging a guard player like that fellow up top suggests, i got a squad (3 teams) and you get 15 heavy weapons all up so they are bound to have some junk lying around. on the flip side its great value to grab the box yourself and flick what you dont want off. im sure somebody would like the tripods and guard bodys.
whats the difference between 8 guard and a heavy weapon, that has to be crewed by two men, or 8 men and a hw team? which is essentially saying the same thing? as one team is two men
considering how the sprues are made, they will probably have spare for two men anyway... and if not
Dont buy the team with hw set! shock!
think about what i said from a logical point of view. one option has 8 men the other has 10. heavy weapon = heavy weapon, heavy weapon team = heavy weapon + 2 men.
good lord what are GW thinking! now IG cost the same as SM? what next SM hordes?
