I&#39;m not happy, I really want Krieg models, but I can&#39;t be bothered ordering all the way to the UK for a fist full of messy resin. Hence let rantings begin on such thoughts on this matter.

Yeah the models look really nice. I&#39;ve never built any forge world stuff from scratch if I did and invested in a new set of conscripts...well;

DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG INFANTRY SQUAD ADVANCING x2 £32
DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG INFANTRY SQUAD FIRING x2 £32
DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG COMMAND SQUAD £18
DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG HEAVY STUBBER SQUAD £38

Total: £184

Thats alot of money. 12% adds an extra nearly £20. Not likely for the moment.

Oh, how annoyed I am at the FW models...
They look fantastic, but costs your shirt, left arm and first born.
Not to mention the taxes for transport.
Well, I have a pal who is going to Nottingham this summer.
Perhaps some bribing is in order...

I might be getting some Forgeworld stuff next year, when all my training is done and I have a good amount of expendable income... after I buy my car.

And someday I&#39;m getting a Warhound Titan.

They are expensive.

204 quid is like $350... probably more.

Luckily, my cousins are English so all I have to do is ask for Forge World stuff for my birthday... expensive for me, normal for them!

However, I think some people over-react on how expensive the stuff is. You can get them, it&#39;s just a matter of want. Later this year I plan on buying 2 Pirahna TX-42&#39;s, and a Missile Launcher Crisis Command Suit. It&#39;ll cost me about $150, a trade which I could&#39;ve gotten, say, a 2 Hammerheads, 2 Crisis Suits, and some stealth suits.

It&#39;s just that I want them that badly. And furthermore, I bet a lot of Tau players have spent way more than $150 on their army, as have IG players. So you could&#39;ve some FW stuff, but building an army is more important.

Well If you played an "elite" army with a few really souped up troops and a good number of vehicals you won&#39;t spend too much on the resin and have a good characterful army.

Since I&#39;ve finally got to working as a referee, I&#39;m going to purchase a Death Korps squad firing, and use it as hardened veterans.

I know exactly how you feel, as soon as I saw the Death Korps I fell in love with them...Until I saw the prices. Something like 64 USD for a squad of ten? That was enough to make me wince at my monitor. I mean, sure it&#39;s resin and resin looks good, but it still seems a bit excessive.

Then again this little grip could be from the fact I&#39;m used to importing Gundam models from Japan, where the currency conversions are a little more in my favor.

In the end I might have to dust off my sculpting tools from the art classes I used to take and see if I can&#39;t sculpt my own. If all else fails I suppose I can purchase a few steel legion troopers and call them Kriegs.
