What, in your humble opinions, should be on GW's agenda for IG rather than this metal Vostroyans BS? I think we need more regiments (duh), as the SM and Chaos have specialized models for many regiments in plastic or as metal kits to modify their plastic models. I vote for improving the P.O.S. Catachan parts, but I'm so biased. :shifty:
Honestly, I want to see GW do they Elysians. I think they are an incredible army (I have IA3 and I love their list) but I also think that they should be a legal list.... especially considering that Armoured Company lists are tournament legal now.
Other than them, I would like to see Death Korps of Krieg more than anything else. I really like the whole respirator WWII look that they have. If they were plastic, then I wouldn't be able to resist making a whole army with them.
Well, FW did make Elysians, as I'm sure you know, but they are expensive. I think GW making any of these would open up a host of modeling, converting, and painting possibilities, which would improve business for GW.
*Nudges GW really hard, but all it does is say 'lalala I'm not listening, metal models for you, adn a price hike!*
There would be one major benefit to GW making Elysians in plastic....Plastic Drop Troop Packs
You could actually make drop troop armies look like drop troop armies

Yep, just onew thing to keep in mind: look how long it took to make the cadian models plastic.
In the mid days of rogue trader, where the forces of good and evil were mostly played between the superhuman warriors of the astartes and the evil forces of chaos there came a new army of entirely metal models called the cadian shock troops. (Originally a drop troop army much like the Elysians are.)
Simply take a look at how long it honestly took GW to make pladtic cadians and compare that to the fact that the vast regiments of the IG that were made came out in early third edition.

You do know that Forgeworld are soon to release the Death Korp in resin right? I really like the look of them too, but find it hard to justify a second IG army... :wacko:Originally Posted by H0urg1ass
What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
"Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"
Well i think they should be re-doing the vahallas, Mordians and Tallarns before anything else.
As for the Vostrians BS comment.... i think they look pretty sick and its going to be neat to have a IG army MADE to fight in CoD.
As one of the people who are even gonna bother to play IG because of the vostroyans ( couldn't be bothered with the other IG ), I guess GW must be targetting people like me who intend to buy 4 regiment boxes, 4 platoon boxes, 3 heavy weapons and a Command Squad boxed set for starters, instead of producing plastic IG people like me wouldn't even look at.
I wonder why.
Besides, I like metal models. Plastic ones don't feel the right way, and I know there are others who have purely metal armies as well. Just because you feel this way doesn't mean GW has to listen to you, because you don't make up their entire consumer market.
Agreed on the Valhallans and Tallarns and... Mordians... I guess:rolleyes:Originally Posted by hardcastle
However, though the Vostroyans are cool looking, they are still pure metal range, which in my opinion is an outdated way to do these things... armies and such. Metal Officers, plastic Guard, I say.
like the above poster stated, some people love metal and hate plastic!
Although i love plastics my self ( due to weight, chipping, cost ) i know some people who play armies like SoB just cause its all metal.
