I haven't bought a chosen [with command or not] box yet, but I was thinking to eventually build an army around 'em: can you guys tell me if they come with only great weapons or with also hand weapons and shields, additional hand weapons or other parts? And what you think of the models?
Just wondering because they are really expensive (25€/30$ for only 5 models) and they're always shown with only great weapons.
The modals only come armed with 2 handed weapons but they do however look just like halberds as well. You will tho need to converted your own for the other options which isnt hard at all.
I am converting my own from orcs and goblins black orcs which is also a great idea for saving yourself some money. At £72 for a regiment of 20 chosen, I don't blame you refusing to pay such a silly price.
yeah the chosen are cool but the price is way to high, its a shame they arnt in plastic though! then i would be more temted to buy them
I would just use the normal chaos warriors as chosen and then pay for either the halberd/GW conversion kit. This way you get the weapon options you want without having to pay over the odds for them. Give them a suitable paint job and they will stand out as chosen (I find lots of gold or bronze helps.).
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
Thank you guys. I'm quite disappointed that the chosen models come without additional weapon options, it's a pity 'cause they really look menacing and brutal.
Anyway, I'm still uncertain, but your suggestions seem to be really effective...!
There's actually a page on the GW site that shows some converted weapon options for Chosen: Games Workshop
I wish we still had the OLD GW site that actually had useful information where you could actually find it instead of just making it easier to buy things.
Having bought three boxes of Chosen (including command box) I can say they only come with great weapons.
In addition, one of the model's weapon is actually too short and I had to chop, and lengthen it so it would match where the arms are actually positioned.
This model was in both of the normal Chosen boxes I got, so I would assume it is in all of the normal Chosen boxes.
Pretty irritating considering the price.
Do all of the Chosen actually come grouped with the weapon they're meant to use? Also, there's no harm in having to do some modifying, it'll only improve your conversion skills! Did you saw it, put a pin in at the correct length and then fill the gap with Green Stuff? Just wondering for when I come to it!
Hit up eBay. I've seen units of 10 Chosen (5 "regulars" and the command box) go for less than $40 CAN.
EDIT: Oops. Wait. Is discussing non-GW pricing and third party sales a no-no according to forum guidelines? If so, apologies.
All the heads are on a separate sprue and you can mix and match those.
I didn't saw the axes, instead I clipped them with a pair of clippers and filed them smooth, then I pinned and GS'd them to the correct length.
It's just irritating when the weapon should already be the correct size and I shouldn't have to modify it.
