Default GW strikes again...

I've been looking into collecting IG seriously now, and have always liked the look of the Steel Legion's models. I do not want to have the same doctrines, or be the Steel Legion, I just would like the models for my army (I even plan on a new color scheme). But can anyone tell me why a 10 model Steel Legion Squad be 35$, while a 20-man Cadian Squad is 30$!?

This really is makin me happy- I don't intend to pay up a hundred or two extra dollars for just looking better!!!
But they really look cool.....can anyone help to explain this!?

Because they are metal.

I think the extra price is always worth it for a better looking, more unique army.

Plus you also get a heavy weapon in the Steel Legion box. Grenade Launcher, Missile Launcher and Sarg I think (Ive got a mte who has about 4 boxes of them).

*ghasp* It would appear you have a mate with too much cash as well.... If you want to collect ASL but are not prepared to pay the horid price of the metals, you could try to hunt down some WWI or II vintage soldiers with gas masks, give them new lasgun arms and build up those crazy trenchcoats with green stuff (epoxy putty).

On the topic of what you get for your money, a single Cadian box gets you enough components to make 4 each grenade launchers, flamers, vox caster/com units, and sarges with the laspistol-chainsword combo.

yea...in america, 35$ for a SL 10 squad, and 30$ for a Cadian 20-squad...
I didn't know they were medal. I think they really are meant for SL players, as SL has few infantry. But to play only usning those looks cost a hell of alot more.
But I hate to be the guy that uses all forgeworld- elysian models .
Thanks for the help.
