Default Plastic Kasrkin?


I was at a shop buying some new models a couple days ago. They had the clearance/closeout bin that had several Kasrkin sergeant blisters. I asked if they were not selling well, the shop guy said they put them on sale to make room for the new plastic version. Anybody else hear this?

I bought them anyway since it was so cheap. Grenadiers are in the future sometime.

I would seriuosly love some plastic Kasrkin, although I don't think it's likely to happen soon. And shouldn't this be in the rumours section?

To the nine hells with the Kasrkin, the more GW whore them out the more my real storm troopers get the shaft.

The Kasrkin modles are only OK if you play cadian, and only a handful of proper IG players accualy use Cadians.

I quite like the Kasrkin models, though my main beef with them is their poses which makes them difficult for me to convert. If there are plastics, then they may be multi-part. If this is true then I may end up making the Radical Demonhunter army I've been considering for a while. Strange no one has said anything about this yet, or been in much rumors.

I love the way Kasrkin models look. I think it's perfectly feasible to use the models in any IG regiment as Storm Troopers are supposed to be elite troops attached to a task force and not truly part of any given regiment anyway. Seems fitting that they should stick out like a baboons arse.

What are you complaining about anyway? The more focus Kasrkin get, the more unique your Stormies look. :P

It does make sense to have plastic Kasrkin. They seem to have usurped regular Storm Troopers as far as GW is concerned, and since they are used by Imperial Guard, Witch Hunters, Daemonhunters and presumably Alien Hunters when they show up, I don't think it would be uneconomical for GW to consider it. Just so long as the hands aren't actually attached to the guns I'll be happy.

Stormtroopers are suppose to elite, bad ass guys with years of training, experience, and $$$ worth of badass kit, they should be smart enough NOT to wear a sign that says "shoot me first" like they were some kind of ultra marine.
