Is the new vostroyan platoon box a good deal. I dont play Imp. G. but i plan to start a pure vostroyan army and i was wondering if the 90 smackers was steep for what was there compared to say cadians or catachans.
Well... you basically get one troops choice in the platoon box, so for that price yes, it will be a very expensive army to collect (Like most other metal armies). If cash isn't a concern go for a pure Vostroyan army.. although keep in mind you will probably be wanting at least two of those platoon boxes. Best value for money will always be the Cadian Battle force. Twenty troops, three heavy weapons teams, a leman russ and some ruins.. cant go wrong.
What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
"Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"
I did the math and if you bought everything that comes in the vostroyan box in plastic and metal cadians it is actually a little bit cheaper to go with vostroyans...by like 4 bucks but still...no one ever said imperial guard where a cheap army:cry:
the only thing with the Vos army box is the weapons it provies.
1 nady laucher
2 plasma gunners
not sure about you but i hardly never use flamers or nady launchers since i play against all MEQ and i also never use mortars. VERY DISAPOINTING! i know they are trying to give a good mix but ATLEAST give a h.bolter instead of a mortar and maybe 2 nady launchers instead of a flamer!
Hardcastle you also forgot the medic.
I mean sure it's kinda steep for a all metal platoon, but this is a new army. So of course it's gonna be expensive.
Anyways yeah, it's one platoon but worth it if you're willing to shell out the bucks.
Oh and by the way.

BEWARE THE POWER OF THE LIGHT-BRIGHT!
i included teh plasma gunners.....Originally Posted by BDThrall89
they rock for models i wish i could get em, but i just spend 5 bills on a tzeentch army!
Just checked out the previews and there is a pic of a very bad arse heavey bolter... maybe you could convert the mortar into something else using some cadians.
i actually like the h.bolter lolOriginally Posted by C/-Rt3r
to each there own i guess.
When i first saw the models i wasnt sold on them, but now they are starting to grow on me. But its hard giving up nice light plastics for metal, even if i like the figures.
In my oppinon, that box should contain an officer and 24 lasgunners. Then the rest of the heavy and special weapons should be sold separatly so one won't end up with models that won't be used. Just like the Kasrkin flamer model for instance, everyone gives them melta or plasmaguns instead, yet the box still comes with the lessly used grenade launcher and flamer...
but then GW cant gouge thier consumers!!!Originally Posted by Kaiser
