    I feel that stuff like the Greater Daemons and Avatars is less about scale creep and more about improvements in GW's resources and sculpting/casting technology. Pretty sure they always wanted them to be that huge, but it just wasn't viable with metal Models, or plastics when they had to be sculpted by hand.

    That seems to be the general consensus I've heard from most people, and I agree, that the old designs just needed to be updated to plastic (and maybe a slight tweak in scale, the older models were a bit smol.) These are a lovely homage to some badass sculpts that were well ahead of their time.

    I’m so happy these new sculpts are mostly just reposes and slight tweaks of the classic Jes Goodwin originals. Citadel knocked it out of the park with the Sisters of Battle back in the day, all we needed was for them to take advantage of plastics ability to get more dynamic poses...

    Truth. I don't think there are any Jes Goodwin designs that need any fundamental changes. Just updates to take advantage of better sculpting/casting technology.

    I said "elementary kids" not toddlers. Toddlers can break anything.

    Gandalf and Frodo could have saved a lot of time simply by telling a toddler that the One Ring was a "no touching" and then leaving them alone in a room with it for five minutes.

    I went back to the facebook page for the sale and saw some good pictures taken during the sale. I would make sure to repost them again ahead of the next sale. Especially far enough in advance to give people enough time to make plans.  It wasn't that I didn't know there was a sale, cause it was on the club boards, I just didn't know what to expect from the posts and facebook page. I only have so much free time on the weekend so committing another day to gaming oriented stuff is a challenge. I'm glad I came by and was able to pick up some stuff from the games I'm actively playing.
    Thanks again for everyone that made the sale happen.

    I got sidelined by responsibility. So my feedback would be for me to be less responsible, and go to the garage sale! Bummed I missed it. 😞

    Well thanks to Pretre, I now have lots of Slaanesh daemons, including the super sweet Keeper of Secrets. I didn't really want a daemon army.,.which I don't have enough for, but I will now have a few different options for summoning for my army. I'm still not thrilled with the whole "pay for units that might not get to come on". But also don't think the powerlevel version of "summon all you want" works either. Perhaps they should have just costed the characters a bit more to account for the possibility of summoning in a unit. Not sure. But I do like the models and now I have even more to paint. Ugh.

    Need might be a strong word but I'll be buying a whole new force (prob 2000 pts plus) to go with my existing sisters, just so I can get all the new stuff and paint it cohesively.
    I already put in a preorder for that box with my FLGS. 😉
