    Plastic Baneblade

    I heard this from someone on 40Kforums who said that GW might be considering making the first ever Plastic Super Heavy. Well I thought thats never gonna happen, but hey, we all have our fantasies...mines having two legions of Titans...

    I personally doubt it totally as GW have said stuff like this before and never done it. But it would be good, and it would cost £50 in english pounds, don't know in dollars (The same as a Mumakil)

    Let them know Kayos, The Predatory One

    Let them know Conflykt, The Stalker

    Let them know Death; Kayos and Conflykt

    Ummm this one I kind of doubt as no one has ever had any evidence to support this.
    I really don't see why Games Workshop would want to build one as it would still cost $150-$250 which is plain crazy for a single plastic model.

    Sure it would be sick to have a cheaper GW produced Baneblade, but all we can do is wait for some official info on such a rumor.

    Yeah, I'd scrap that rumor mainly due to the price of those kind of models. First it takes a lot of plastic and development to make the molds and models, too far than its going to sell.

    Next, if GW releases it, they must make it useable in tournaments? If not, then sales of it will not even do it justice. The baneblade can never cost undr 150$ or so. That would put all meaning of Forgeworld down the toilet. And also allows little kids who beg their parents to buy them stuff... well lets just say you'll see newbies around carrying baneblades and not even knowing how to play.

    Not to mention how it would de-balance the game, you almost wouldn't stand a chance unless you tailored your army, even Tau I bet would need at least some Tailoring.

    Haha yeah, I dont even know a baneblade stats, but I've seen what it has done in Dawn of War, and by far jeebus, no I'm not ready to fight against that thing o.o

    Its warmachine sized... and poops on a land raider..

    But then again... this would provide orks for some looting fest now eh?

    Uh sir, theres a big tank,

    oh our baneblade?

    Yes... wait no.. its colored red..

    Wait, since when was it colored red?

    sir... I think its... a .. Looted Baneblade! That will be the day.

    A plastic Baneblade has been semi-confirmed.
    No, it wouldn't be something you could bring every day. It'd still have at least the same amount of restriction that it does now.

    I think unless the Restrictions are "Can only use in games of 2500 points or more...." you'll find them to be pretty common.

    I'd say 3000+ and you tell your opponent before hand. These things are beast I've gone up against one once before, and I have to say they are devilish at there worst.

    Why not make a tank that somewhere between a Leman Russ and a Baneblade. Kind of like a Land Raider with a Super Battle Cannon, now I'd defiantly buy that.

    Or maybe you can always hit it on 2+ cause it so huge.

    but yeah, I think they'd have to tone it down to not have to apply crazy Restrictions
