Default NO, BLACK REACH IS HERE! pictures included.

Thanks for the link to the pre orders in the other post zenny, but this whole time as we have had black reach for over 10 days now, we thought you had pictures of the sprues up.

and since we saw them nowhere - we decided to go ahead and post them.

I took a few close ups of cool stuff like the warboss and the Dread so you can get a feel for what there like.

I think they are friggin awsome, even if they peg together.

follow the link to our photobucket:

Sorry if these pics are somewhere else, I couldnt find em in the search.
there are 4 sprues, 2 of them are identicle with mariones, orks, termies, and a kopta. One has the warboss and nobs, and one for the dread and cpt. Also i noticed that the molds are pretty clean and not as many lines in them.. so assembly for a whole set should be really easy (given pegs).

I think i will bitz this one out soon. a guy offered me $20 for the dred and another offered me $30 for the orks, and another guy offered me $25 for the termies.... (shouldnt they just buy the whole thing?)

So, why didn't you post them up ^-^ anyway, Gareth showed them (sprues) first :P

EDIT: Huh, I would have thought that the Commander and Warboss would be metal :P

hey, there you are. I wanted to make sure that everybody got a peek, so i figured new post was in order (tough call)

yeah I thought that the warboss just "looked metal" - my brain made an assumption, and there was no thought process. maybe because all other warboss' are metal?

but no - the entire thing is on 4 plastic sprues.

Ya, the way I see it looks simple enough for a newbie [size=1pt]or a lazy asshole[/size] to assemble the models and get started though for myself, I went straight to Imperial Guard :P and the Cadian models doesn't seems so complicated to assemble nor tedious but that's just me. I learn quickly.

Looks great but I won't be starting Space Marines nor Orks and I already got my Rulebook (my first BTW) and the templates and stuff to get me into the game :P

I'm a bit disappointed with the look and simplicity of the models... I was hoping for proper minis rather than clip together game toys... I was going to buy this but 40 could be better spent else where I think. :-\

Hey now, don't be rash. What's to stop you from cutting them all up and swapping parts with current marines/orks or future marines/orks?

Plus you get the rulebook!

Starter sets have always been simple. And this has massive savings.

I was suprised when Garteh showed us his models, and how good they look for a starter set. I think that if GW is going to make snap-fit, I'm glad they at least look good.
