He's £12, which on it's own could be viewed as expensive, but a Genestealer Locus is £17.50 and you get much less model for your buck and even less packaging [which might be a bad thing, I can't tell].
He's a pretty decent sized unit, only undermined a little bit because GW puts put so many big models nowadays. As I have a few of them, now he's made he looks a little diminutive next to them. That said put him next to one of my metal 2nd Edition Ogres and he's a beast - which does beg the question why I didn't just use one of them in my team - they're earmarked for their respective Chaos Teams
It's also worth noticing the detail on his gut shield. I could not understand what was going one and as you can see from the picture above and the actual 'Eavy Metal pack shots - that skull face is criminally overlooked. I might be taking a few more liberties with my colour scheme on such a big model - a few more metallics but we'll see how it evolves.
And so I get my Big Build Big Galactic Stamp of Approval - yay!
