I've not done the math but I hear it's about a 1k of discount and one rumour site surgested that you get loads of extras like artwork and signed swag. I know if I had the money for it spare I'd get one.
What, no image sigs!

Someone claimed to have bought it on Warseer.

I dunno why people get excited about this, the price of buying a shedload of stuff is kinda irrelevant, it's the "grassroots" price that should be causing more "excitement" cos that actually affects us ;)

More to the point, who's got the time to paint it! Lets be honest here, how many of us have started armies and never got round to finishing it? If I counted up how much I'd bought off them over the years it'd probably come to more than the asking price, most of it never got painted!

I think this is GW just poking fun at themselves...i mean if someone does order it (and by if i mean did they escape the mental institue long enough to rob a post office to pay for it) then we'lll know if they release chapter/craftworld/caste/legion/regiment set....also GW will be laughing their asses off that they acually pulled it off

If it was painted by the eavy metal team in a chapter of my choice I would pay for it, even for more money, cos marks right it would never all get built and painted

If it was painted by the 'eavy metal team the price would be at _least_ triple that.

Would you tell them what weapon combos you wanted or let them go crazy on it?
