Is It Just Me... Or Does This Thing Actually Look Good?

by SandWyrm


You bug players will have to tell me if it does very much to help the rest of the new codex, but I'm actually impressed with both the model and the rules for once. Rare high-five to GW!

  1. Everyone is going nuts...nuts...the second build of this thing is rumored to be a deep striking synapse node.

    Nid players are shooting tears out of their face right now in happiness.

    1. Not taking up a Force Org slot is the best part. Guess we'll have to see how the rest of the book turns out.

    2. I think the T5, 6W, 4+, and five venom cannons, plus it can move is also pretty sweet :).

    3. Wow, missed that it could move! Have a post about this later tonight!

  4. It's just you I'm afraid.

    Looks a lot like a floating scrotum with a crown.....fail!!!

    But it matters not what I think of it, GW will still sell loads of them, sigh :(

    1. That doesn't make it true to the Giger-ness of Alien(s)?

    2. Don't recall any ball bags swinging near Ripley, must have missed that part.

    3. No but they shot a phallus out of their mouths. Pretty much all of giger's art for the xenomorphs is dripping with sexuality. A gross, agressive, rape metaphor version of sex mind you

    4. I'm fully aware of Gigers art, but the phallus that the aliens shot out of their mouths didn't "look" like a penis! And that is the point I'm trying to make, the plastic kit "looks" like a giant scrotum. Not enough of a motivation to by a miniature in my book.

      An answer to a question posed in the title of the post.....I happen to not like it.....my opinion, that's it.

    5. I think they look like tap dancing easter eggs, but thats probably just me.

  5. I am sure it would help out nids a good amount. I am also guessing it will be 70+ dollars a kit setting you up for the ideal GW 1 dollar per point army.

  6. Rumors seem to make at bargain priced at only 60 dollars. I guess I will get 5 then. Or Not.

  7. Curse my limited internet. I'm going to have to sell some organs. The looks don't matter, the fact that we have rules for droppods again is amazing. The first wave had me worried they were so meh.
