Zero defects in 60 parts.

The cynical side of me is wondering which of those two statements is more likely to indicate counterfeits.

@H8..... Actually there is little doubt in my mind they are counterfeits. I have gotten some of the "FW" parts before and they are identical to the resin used by the other parts. Now that being said I am paying 50% of FW prices and have not had one single miscast ever sent to me...... something I cannot say for FW. I might just deal with them solely..... 8-)

Now that I have the conversion bits I need to plan out the rest of the figure.

What legs to use?
Mk2-5 legs look a bit plain compared to the ornate conversion bits.

Imperial Mk 6-7 legs might look OK but do not exactly fit with a Pre heresy look.

Chaos Legs have more detail than Imperial versions but are a distinctly post heresy style.

Gray Knight legs might work with a bit of cleanup . They appear to be a Mk 6 base which could be heresy era. The extra detail, minus "][" symbols and purity seals, is not as gaudy as Chaos legs and may fit withe the rest of the mini better.

Terminators have the same issues with legs.

What arms to use?
Chaos arms should work. The detail is not blatantly post heresy.

Imperial arms would work as there are only minor differences between armor marks.

Gray Knight arms might work but guns may be a problem. I'll have to check out the sprues.


Weapons?
I have the FW bolter set and several generations of GW Bolters. Since the PA troops will probably only be used as squad leaders or characters they may need pistols or CC weapons as well.

Oh, I know, that's what I was trying to say:
1) "I can tell they're fakes because the resin is different."
2) "I can tell they're fakes because the quality is too good to be from FW."
We've reached a point where #2 is probably a better indicator, which is sad.

Lane,
By the fluff, anything besides Mk8 armor would have been available by the end of the Heresy, so I'd say use whatever you like best. The difference between using the Imperial or Chaos versions may just come down to having the edge trim with arrows.

Finally managed to get to the Post Office to pick up my Galactic Knights in Great Armour. Very, very nice. As good, if not better, than the "normal" Thousand Sons they make. The detail's even better than you can see on the pix. Almost no problems with bubbles (just a few tiny ones). My only gripe, and it's really nit-picking is that some of the casting lugs are going to be hard to remove. Certainly not impossible, but it'll take some care.

But aside from that one quibble, the new Great Armor kits are superb. Have to think about getting some more at some point!

Vale,

I've been looking high and low for these bits on eBay. I've sent messages to the previous auctioner but got no reply. Does anyone know someone I can contact to pick up a set? Or if you see an auction go up could you post to this thread? (since they seem to be under some creative names there could be auctions going on right now and I just can't find them)

Thanks!

I haven't seen them up on eBay for a while now, or any new auctions from the seller recently at all for that matter. But the seller's had the occasional "break" from selling stuff in the past. Perhaps on holiday?

Thanks Cygnnus. Do you recall what sort of price the bits were pulling in on the auction, or what the buy it now price was?

I've noticed that the prices for the Custodes (both metal "troopers" and the resin terminators) can vary pretty wildly.

IIRC their auctions were a bit erratic anyway. They would have 5-10 of a few items then a few of something else, etc.

Looks to me like they are casting sets as they have spare time then posting in batches. This latest down time could be several molds needed replacing or waiting for more resin.

I hadn't considered, must be my impatient nature. I'll keep my eyes open for another auction to pop up.

I seem to recall they were selling at the $50-60 range (I think the "normal" Egypt-style Galactic knights were selling for $50 and the "Great Armor" ones were $60), but I could me mistaken. They were available as "buy it now".

Hope that helps.

The Power armor set of ten was $50, Termies were $40 for six.
Note: arms, legs and weapons not included.

I really wanted it but had to pass on the auction I was watching. He was starting at 99 pounds (roughly $170 USD), plus about another $20.00 for shipping. $200 for ten sets of armor, minus arms, legs and weapons seems a little steep.
