We in Canada also have to pay over $100 for Blood Knights, and our currency is on par with US along with most of our prices being around 50%+ more expensive. Its definately cheaper for us to order from the War Store, or even the US GW store if you can order from there from different countries.
They really are amazing models, though. If I wasn't a poor uni student, I'd pick some up.
I really have a hard time with paying so much for five models. I mean, 75.00 is what I expect to pay for around 15 models. I understand that Blood Knights are big, nice, models, but still, I feel like they are overpriced. I don't plan to buy them, but I may buy the Kastallan blister to lead my converted squad of Knights of the realm I plan to use,
As said above each one of them is detailed to the level of a special character. The box costs £40 in the UK, and each one will retail for £10. So you are effectively getting a free knight in the box set.
Also, unless you are playing 3,000 points, or want to have no adaptability and want to get slapped in every battle, you'll never be taking more than 5 of them in the first place.
They are all metal & larger then the plastic mounted knights...(See White Dwarf pic of them facing off)...they are super nicely detailed too...and 5 can be maxed out to 425 pts...Oh, and there are several websites that give 20% off and they sell these babies for $60.00 a box & free postage (some online stores).....much better....
