Yesterday GW announced that the Techpriests are starting to get things running again, and that they'll be releasing a limited ed Catachan Colonel strictly for independent retailers!

This dude is basically Carl Weathers in Predator! Add in Sly Marbo as Stallone in Rambo and you've basically got a Rocky reunion!

That's gotta be reason to start a Catachan force, right?!

Haha also you may need 300 quid to get hold of one 🤣 but I love the model. May wait for it to see if a recaster can get hold of it!

While I wouldn't ever do such a thing myself (it's best to stay in GW's good books!) I can imagine that'll be what a lot of people do.
Assuming it course that it doesn't become another "oh we only meant limited edition before, now everyone can have it" type model when they re-release the Catachan line!

I already want a small urban Catachan force to act as an attached regiment for my SM, just so I can use my old metal models!

It seems a real waste of a beautiful model! Especially if you make a mistake - it's not like you can just buy another one!

Yeah I think ppl do it just to trigger other people on facebook 🤣 but it's an expensive trigger!

For now at least - if they do a full release I think there will be a few people crying into their wallets 😂
