Default Anyone got the Eldar Rangers Box?

Ok i'm looking at the GW Eldar range because i'm thinking of starting a small Eldar taskforce.

Anyway a boxed set of Eldar rangers costs ?18 and it says you get 5 rangers in it.

A blister pack of Eldar Rangers costs ?8 and you get 3 metal rangers in it.

So I can buy either 6 rangers for ?16 or 5 rangers for ?18? Am I missing something here or does that make no sense to anyone else either? Does the boxed set of rangers come with models that aren't available in the blister packs of 3 or something or is this just really bizarre pricing on the part of GW.

As it stands I can get them cheaper from elsewhere anyway but i'd just like to know if there's a method to this madness.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: ok for some reason my pound signs are all automatically changing into question marks. i'm not sure why but i'm sure you get the gist of the post.

2nd EDIT: on closer inspection the set fo 3 rangers appear to be a different design to the boxed rangers. I'm guessing an older set of models? can anyone confirm this?

The set of 3 rangers are older (and not as cool in my eyes).

However, the prices of GW are very silly when you buy in bulk compared to separately

Honestly, I think that you'll find the newer boxed set rangers much more appropriately proportioned to your other models and more dynamic to paint. But the choice, is, of course yours to make.

I'll be buying the newer rangers in the box. Not directly from GW of course. Was just wondering what was up with the pricing wasn't 100% certain if it was 2 different designs of rangers or if it was just a stupid way of pricing them.

Thanks for clarifying guys.

Will be placing an order for my first few Eldar shortly. I have a very specific scheme in mind that has sparked my interest in Eldar lately, i'll be sure to get some pics up once i've sorted the fluff and painted the first few.
