I heard a rumor recently (old rumor, I'm sure) that the new battle force has a "kneeling legs" sprue, is that true?
And to anyone you actually has the new tactical box, any thing look REALLY new? I know theres plastic assault weapons, but is the actuall gun different than the metal one from the blister? And what all IS new?
Also, do you still have to cut off the bolter grip to be able to get it on the hands?
I'm almost mad I don't get all this, cause it could have saved me money in the long run. And IMo, from what I see, the $5 price hike on it is semi worth it, cause of the new stuff.
Thanks for yuor help.
To my knowledge, the new Tactical box does not have the kneeling legs, but I could be wrong.
The new Devastator box does however, as can be seen HERE
The new Tactical Squad are not greatly different but they do 'possibly' appear slightly more dynamic but the main difference I believe is the addition of those little extras like purity seals and cloth adournments as you can see HERE
Terminator Based Custom Chapter
You can still get the classic Tactical Marines for their old price by looking at the Witch Hunter's miniature range in the online store, or simply by going HERE .
Yes, you do need to cut of the bolter grip to get it on. If you have a pair of good clippers (or a good multi-tool like a Leatherman or a Swiss Army Knife) and files this little bit is no biggie. In my humble opinion, I prefer the classic Tactical Marines. The new ones look a little to... flashy. All those extra embelishments cannot make sense from a tactical standpoint.
Thakns for all the answers, especially to things I didn't ask....I didn't ask if you can still get old tactical boxes, or how to cut the grip off the bolter.....But thanks anyways...
And wolfkin, I said battle force, towards the first question, because I saw a rumor that it had the kneeling leg sprue, like the dev box, in it.
Oh, better hurry! These out of production Tactical Boxes are running out! Get them before they are gone forever !!!! Only 79 (as of this post) left! Uh oh! :p
Anyway, I don't like cutting off the bolter handles. It's painful to cut off such a great little detail on a great little gun. It just isn't right cutting it off. I wish GW would make open hands to hold the bolters. It might be easier to convert them to hold other weapons as well.
Those kneeling poses are cool. GW should include at least 2 in the boxes, kinda like in the tau boxes with their kneeling poses. They add some dynamics to the poses. Not just standing or kinda starting to run poses, but kneeling too. It's more realistic for the guys aiming and firing heavy weapons.
