Somebody will. There are a number of people in this game who seem to spend money pretty freely. Definitely isn't going to be helping their sales however. I think the price answers the question as to why it's a Black Anchor Heavy Industries model. Seems like we should be comparing this to Forge World prices.
Personally I think I'll take a pass on this. I've got a ton of other things to do, and other models to work on. Never bought anything from Forge World either.
When you have the rules, pound the rules. When you have the facts, pound the facts. When you have neither the rules nor the facts, pound the table really loudly, and make as much noise as possible.
Hard pass on this. At $90-100, I was prepared to buy 2. $165 is "Firetruck you" pricing. It's pretty maddening that the Troll tax has gotten so expensive, as further demonstrated by the Sea King and the Northkin Raiders.
The saving grace on those two was that it was possible to get them with a retailer discount, or something like ebay. I regularly see both on "sale" for ~30% off or more. With this being direct to consumer, there aren't going to be ANY discounts on the hooch hauler to make this an easier pill to swallow.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this model start appearing on the table, but from "distributors" in China or Russia.
