That was a good review from him. I find myself agreeing on all points. And I still don't understand why they didn't take the opportunity to add some of the other artillery options.

Possibly because in the wave release the other options will have their own kits.

It's a money making ploy. They realise that people know how to make modular tanks now.

I see why he's pissed off... that's not a new model, the Basilisk parts are identical to the Basilisk I bought way back in 3rd... except mine came with metal crewmen!

From what we saw at WHW, there is very little difference to the kit.

Its not a new release, at all.

It's just a bizarre box. It would be like re-releasing the Leman Russ, without the sponsons, without the wheels and without any crew sticking out of the hatch, and then putting the price up...

Good thing I wasn't planning on having any anyway. ^^

I've never seen anyone take a basilisk in a competitive list, myself. Always opt for either the hydra or manticore, which would have made a lot more sense as a new kit since I'm sure a lot more people would be buying them up. No reason to get a basilisk, especially if it's the exact same model as before but with a higher price tag...

I like his shirt....

"Im not crazy, it's just the my toaster tells me to kill women"



So the only new bit is the now standard track and skirting sections?

Whilst they were awesome for the hell hound and the chimera got an update... was there a point in doing it for the lisk?

Money. Now if you want the accessory sprue you have to pay extra to get it from direct-order.
