Default Special Offer SM

Found this on the new US site: every order of $100 (50 if it gets released in UK) comes with a free SM, to celebrate 5th Ed....

....wow [/sarcasm]. Is it just me or are GW desperate to sell Veterans?

It's a free model, who cares? Looks pretty good too if I do say so myself.

I don't like it for two reasons:

A) Bad pose in my opinion.
B) Bolter and Powerfist.

I quite like it actually, looks like a commander to me, especially with that fancy leg plate he's got. Though I guess the white helmet indicates he's a veteran. Whatever! Sometimes they have limited edition models for sale at gamesday, if this bloke is there I'll be happy to pick him up.

Eh, it's free, so I can't complain. The pose does look a bit dorky, though that may just be the angle. As for the armament, Space Marines will be outfitted with a Bolter, Bolt Pistol, and CCW; replace the CCW with a Powerfist and you have a perfectly legal model, even if in games terms he can't be using the Bolter and the Powerfist at the same time. I think he'd make a better Company Commander (perhaps with a cape added on), then a Veteran.

Meh.. pretty meh to be honest.. he's so "chunky"

Look at the imperial eagle ontop of his backpack..
And whats with the giant pointless cable on his powerfist?
and is he even looking in same direction as his boltgun?
