And the Highlander HMG has two sets of arms...shame they couldn't have done that for the Swiss Guard!

Your reaction to this is significantly more measured than I expected.

I've been drinking. I mellow when I'm drinking.

 

That's a joke. I don't drink alcohol. At all.

I just don't see it as something to be irked about today.

Fucking get in, Morlock box

'I don't need 11 Morlocks'* vs 'Ooh if I convert them I can get a Morlock for every Metachemistry roll'...

*Original 4 + Bak Starter + Gata + 8Ball + new Box

Let us all hope it is a glorious sign that they have seen the wisdom of their old two arms ways and are returning to it for more models. 

Other news: Igao repack was not expected but is super appreciated. I hope it is not like the Spentnaz repack and is actually Kotails or something.  That would make me sad.

Fat chance, I feel. We didn't get it with the Taskmaster. I kinda/sorta expect it to be a thing for the high model count factions that might have people buying multiple starters to bulk up stuff but not so much for everybody else.

It's still super weird that the Spetsnaz repack was in actuality a SAS repack...

Not that I don't like the current one but now I might actually get a Warcor as I love this one.

I support the idea of multiple arms sets for miniatures ( I am also more than willing to pay extra for this ), but not 2 variations of the same weapon for a single mini blister release. If there was a recent Caledonian release that needed additional weapon options included, it was Volunteer box ( Chain Rifles for everyone ). Some thought needs to be put into this, don't just add stuff randomly. 

I am also curious why didn't they bother with repainting Croc Men to current color scheme ( like they did with Ninjas repack for example ).

Love the releases in general.

That's a weird way to spell "Galwegian".
