Also my opinion, the sculpts are leaning more towards the FW style Orks.

Personally I'd suggest that the FW sculpts are more reminiscent of Paul Bonners' sculpts (Buzzgob was illustrated by PB in IA8) and I ain't complaining about that :lol  but if that's what GW are aiming for - let's just say BS 5+.

Btw, if you read the article it seems we only get 2 buggies in the new box, not 3. I'm still cool with that.

Speed Freaks will need to be a serious deal for me to get it.  I just don't need more bikers...

Ha, I know.  My problem is that I run SOOOOOO many things I run out of points before I run out of bikers!

 

I should restate that I would need to see huge savings to get it since I would rather just buy more buggies.  As in if I can get two more buggies I'll do that!  I need to buy the trike too...

I would be very surprised if you weren't at least getting the Bikes free. GW's boxed sets usually offer a significant saving.

Bikers are so pricey I don't believe we will get massive savings.  Outside of the Renegade box the savings on the boxed sets haven't been mindboggling.  Only decent.  If there are things in the box that you don't really need, then the price gets even worse.

Key with the bikes is the rules in the normal game, or more specifically the cost, the rules look fine just not at "how much!" as a cost, if they are still over priced (and with a load of new buggies to sell they may well be) the box starts to be a lot worse given how much will be shelf queens at the end of it.

 

make bikes 'acceptably' priced, if not cheap, just not an auto 'forget it' outside occasional games though and they become worth a look

I just wish they'd give us back the cheap stripped bikes with no dakkaguns. I have a whole mob modeled that way :/

Who are we to judge them? We panzee who have failed, or the Humans, on the road to ruin in their turn.
And why? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn't even bother to ask.
We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

I'd rather have more buggies. The Warbikes are just filler...unless the bits for them are totally new. Either way, I'll just be picking up one set.

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Brian Nelson did a lot of the Ironjaws as well. 

 

You are right! The Ironjawz Megaboss is 100% made by Nelson (and you can see it, it's amazing, face and everything), there is also an interview about this in the white dwarf at the release time of them if i remeber correctly. 

 

That said, the "old" nelson ork head are for me the best, the gorkamorka bosses above all! But these last seen, buggies one and wartrike bozz ( :love  :love ), are not so bad,,, anyway i must admite that i found annoying that every new kit or ork release the face of our beloved greenskins change a bit! Not a big problem, not at all, they are not real changes, but it's like there is always the fear to look at these news faces hoping you will like them  :lol  :lol
