Plastic baneblade kit to be released with the Apocalypse book ( or what ever the title is going to be) in late september 2007. and will retail for around $90.00 usd.
I heared this from a reliable source about 2 weeks ago and got it confirmed by a second party last night.
Go black shirts
Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.
I'm still gonna wiat till I see it on the GW online shop or pics of it at a GD, sofar there's to many conflictting rumours regarding what's next.
I've read this in sooo many places such a long time ago..
this is all attributed to the popularity of Dawn of War, there's no denying that.
I guess the game's good for something!
emmmmmmmmm how many times have I seen that ... oh its from a good source etc
I can't wait. I've been meaning to do a tank-heavy battle with a friend for a while, but it really isn't interesting unless you have various sizes of tank- and thus you need Superheavies. Only problem is that for the cost of a Baneblade, I could order several Battle for Skull Pass sets and get a 3,000 point Chaos Dwarf army. Plus it wouldn't be good for much else, because oftentimes FW rules aren't allowed in events.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
It's not gonna happen any time soon. And I have got that from a very reliable source, too.
You see, GW is only able to produce a given number of new plastic sprues per year, due to overhead costs and other logistical considerations. Now think about it... how many sprues would a plastic Baneblade consist of? An estimated 20 to 25. According to my source, this is way, way too much for GW to "waste" on a single model.
So go figure. Is there any chance they are going to put all other projects on hold and produce no new plastic miniatures for any Game System, just to duplicate a model that's selling reasonably well through forgeworld?
Not in my game you won't!!
That's a very good point Erwehon Morf. That said, the actual idea is entirely possible, and it is pretty much certain that they want to do it. But that size of kit will take a very long time to put through the whole production process, so I doubt we will see it any time soon either.
The guys down my local GW confirmed it's due out by the end of the year too. I don't think it would actually take many more sprues that a Leman Russ to be honest - it's still basically just a tank shaped model, albeit a big one.
So my humble Guardsman's fist is as strong as a blast from his laser rifle?
Have you seen one in reality, panzer-attack? The ammount of bits in the FW kit is quite stunning. And then many bits are moulded into a single large bit to!
IMO it should be kept as an FW tank to really keep the 'exclusivity' of it.
