Now with the approach of the new chaos space marine codex I thought I would ask a question. And the following question is :

would you want plastic or resin obliterators (bad spelling)
if in plastic - how many would you expect to be in the box ?

if in resin their will only be 1

Plastic by far. I think 3 per box would work for me.

I would of course love a plastic 3 pack but I'm not overtly against Resin. Any time I can get plastic though I want plastic. That said I know GW only does so many plastic kits and if Obliterators had to settle for Finecast in order to get me plastic Chosen, Havocs, Raptors, Dreadnoughts and Cultists then so be it.

I want Plastic but for every metal model they reintroduced it is in resin so we already know what its going to be. However I am not to fussed about this although I prefer plastic.

Obviously plastic, it's much easier to glue and paint. Also, 3 in a pack would be ideal.
PS: There's nothing wrong with your spelling. :p

Yea I agree with both points. Also with the box only containing one that is usually the case but not always. Alreany said that 3 would be idea but their are some packs like the reacent relase; the Flesh hounds of Khorne (that have 5 citadel finecast models) which have more than three. There are also some old metal models (like gargoles and plague bearers) that are being converted to plastic.

I don't know how much they cost in your country but in Australia the metal models cost $38 so here they will probably increase the price.

dam, just noticed their $35, so they'll probably be $40-45

I suspect there will be a box of 3 obliterators/maulers if the rumour of cc obliterators are true which will mean magnets galore :D

I really hope that is the case but I don't think so considering the Mega Armoured Nobs are just one a pack and they can have more than three in a squad. However I wish they did that.

Please plasitc!

Any time i have broken down and got a fine-cast figure I've regretted it. There have always been such major defects I've had to chop off major parts to replace them. I got some vanguards veterans and I could't even use their jump packs because thery were so deformed. And that's of course paying the premium fine-cast price for something that needs major repairs.

GW's plastics are amasing, the detail is so good now and the extra bits and options are great. you always have extra stuff left over for converting.

yeah you pay a premium price for finecaste. that also goes into the customer support which in turn either sends you whole new kits or replacement bits.

i have a couple abbadons because of finecaste so now i have some extra termi bodies and swords for conversions.

id prefer a multiparl plastic kit but as zuruel said if it means plastics for the other kits then im all up for finecaste

However we all know plastic is better than resin but I will raise this question. Is resin better than metal?

I think that it depends entirely on the size of the model. Small model? Depends on the model's complexity. Large model? Resin, resin, resin.
