Default New Russ Kit, im disapointed.

OK so basically with the new Demolisher kit, GW made a kit that was completely interchangeable and its awesome, but for this new kit they have unfortunately gone back to the attitude of " you pick it and stick with it " which sucks. considering your now paying £30 a tank i think its reasonable to expect a little versatility in the kit, don't you?

You want to be able to interchange the weapons on it?
If so, have a look into buying some Earth Magnets, so you can magnatise and swap weapons on it, there are a few guides about this online

or for a cheaper version. Pins

You make it such that the weapon are swappable using a pin and some hole drilled.

Or even cheaper Blu-tack :P

I like the kit though, perfect for Zaagblitz's waaagh when the vanquisher turret is added to the length of the normal turret :P

I am well aware of magnets and pinning, but that's not what i meant, the leman russ demolisher turret weapons just slide in and out by design where the new russ kit will require modification to acheave the same result.

I actually thought they would have continued the trend of having the guns interchangeable thats a bit of a nuisance all right I like the turret redesign and the normal sized search light but as far as I can tell from the pictures there is no huge difference between the LRBT and the Vanquisher so for that variant I'll stick with the forge workd turrets with their extra long gun barrels and coaxial mounts

Umm if I'm not mistaken in this month's WD, it said that the guns were in fact interchangable.

On a second note, I think only the sponsons were. I'm not disappointd though because it would be so easy to pin :P

Yes, it will be very easy to pin to make it interchangeable, but i thought with the demolisher kit we were going to see some generosity from GW. i was foolish.

It happens, you'll get over it :P

GW are always gonna try and make more money. The Demolisher kits was probably not generating as many sales as they would like.

If you want to change weapons, don't glue on every thing, and buy bits.
