Default Quick Model Question...

Are the Kasrkin Storm Trooper models plastic or metal? I cannot seem to find the answer on GW's website.

Thanks!

They are unfortunately metal.

GW is supposed to release plastic storm troops, although I doubt they will release Kasrkin. I just hope the new plastic ones look better than their metal counterparts. I hate the regular storm trooper models.

Aight thanks, and is there a rough ETA on the plastic ones?

The new plastic ones look hardcore. Seen some of the "gs" work and, the test models at least, have shotguns. And they are very detailed. Even got aquilas on their shoulderpads.

It's all plastic baby. And they should be really easy to remove with a knife alone.

I am SOOOOO anticipating Plastic Stormtroopers, I love Stormtroopers, if they weren't $45 a squad I'd have a lot more of them. My Daemonhunter's army is going to get a LOT bigger when plastic Storm Troopers are released and the rumours of Valkyrie Gunships are quite exciting as well.

I'd like love some plastic stormtroopers, as an elite personal bodyguard for my commanding chaos lord(when the chosen are on vacation) during Apoc.
