I don’t know how reliable my source is, but they claim to have been informed by their local retailer, in Sweden, of new releases in 40k. For Space Wolves and Tyranid fans these look pretty exciting, mainly for the Space Wolf fans. The rumoured releases include:
Space Wolves Thunder Wolf Cavalry (3 figures. Plastic box)
Space Wolves Fenrisan Wolfpack (5 figures plastic box)
Wolf Lord on Thunder Wolf (1 figure finecast)
Arjac Rockfist, The Anvil of Fenris (1 figure finecast)
Hive Tyranid Tyrant, The Swarmlord (1 figure plastic box)
Tyranid Tyrannofex, Tervigon (1 Fig plastic box)
So what do you guys think of these?
I’ve seen alot of people in forums complaining that they’re too late and that they don’t like how GW stagger their releases, however, it’s how GW do things and there are probably several reasons why. What disappoints me is the lack of a new Ragnar model, Arjac is easy enough to make from the Wolf Guard kit and the Ragnar model is too static and needs updating.
When I asked about pricing, he only had the Swedish prices (understandably). But based on the current exchange rates he worked out these:
Space Wolves Thunderwolf Cavalry 359 SEK / 32 GBP / 39 Euro
Space Wolves Fenrisan Wolfpack 155 SEK / 14 GBP / 17 Euro
Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf 255 SEK / 23 GBP / 28 Euro
Arjac Rockfist, The Anvil of Fenris 169 SEK / 14 GBP / 18 Euro
These seem fairly realistic as I imagine Arjac will be £14.50, based on the prices of Logan and Njal. If this is the case, 3 Thunderwolf Cavalry for around £30 sounds quite good to me, based on GW prices, and the fenrisian wolfpack would be a nice piece to add character to an army.
Here’s hoping the Thunderwolf Cavalry don’t look as deranged as Canis’ mount.
I can’t exactly give up Warhammer for Lent now, this just confirms that the devil works for GW.
