:0) Posted June 8, 2005 Share Posted June 8, 2005 A) 20 plastic skellies for $30?http://store.us.games-workshop.com/storefr...5203&GameNav=13 That's odd. This online store says there's only 16 in here. B) http://www.black-tree-design.com/btdcat.ph...834;=&shp=&tot= 18 skellies for $30.63. Granted, not inclusive of shipping charge, but my guess is they're metal. Didn't scan the site long enough to check. C) http://ironwindmetals.com/catalog/product_...roducts_id=1332 12 skellies for $24.95. Assuming 16 equivalent to GW, total cost $33.33, also metal. Not a total bargain, but a presentable alternative. D) Oh, and completely tongue-in-cheek, if you like a bit more flesh on your skellies... http://www.twilightcreationsinc.com/zombies/ 100 plastic zombies for $24.95!!! E) As you can see from my avatar, I am still hoarding a number of GW figs that I bought in a cheaper day and age and will be happy to paint those up eventually. (For simplicity, I labelled your points A-E ) A) Yeah, those are wierd Tomb King skellies. I believe they're higher point cost, but look at the regular Vampire Counts box. If you make "rising" skellies, you can stretch the box to 30 or 35 skeleton warriors. Tomb Kings are assumed to not need as many skeletons, because they don't raise more skeletons through magic like their VC cousins. They only raise what models they've lost. B) Ugh. Black Tree is too expensive nowadays for the quality of their sculpts in my opinion. Pass. C) That does look like a deal, but look how each row is single-pose and only has one weapon. D) Yes, but they're horribly small (20mm scale?), and single-pose. E) Don't think you're the only one. A month back I bought ~50 saurus warriors and five Skink Cavalry (Tichi Huichi's Raiders) together for $50. That's around $150 worth of stuff. Cheap is good. That's why I also love buying online.
