Between 40K and Sigmar, there's a frightening number of armies, all with unique and interesting models.
I'm constantly fighting my impulse to start another army. The Lizardmen were long one of my favorites, but I just didn't want to jump in to another ruleset and all those pricey rulebooks and codecies. Thankfully GW saw fit to make Sigmar free! I'm in. Mission accomplished, GW. I bought in to an army that I never would have under your old system.
The Lizardmen *cough* sorry, Seraphon are just cool. I love Aztec/Mayan imagery and you couple that with dinosaurs? What's not to like? My Start Collecting set just showed up today. They're a great deal to begin with, but I got mine from Frontline Gaming for an extra discount. Just over $70 including shipping for, what, $130 in models? Fantastic. Just the Carnosaur costs more than that on his own.
It's really a crapload of plastic in this box too. I was expecting the tools to be pretty spent, like many of my Marines were in my army box. This army is fairly old after all. The parts are all in pretty great shape though, at first glance. I know 40k is WAY bigger than WHF was so the tools get more use, but this was a pleasant surprise. Won't be too much mold scraping here I think.
What'd you all get? I'm excited now.
