The thing is, again, GW are charging a ridiculous price (£36) for a figure that I really don't like the look of. Regarding their giant, I just simply don't like the design but can see why some people do; Mangler Squigs, however, are a daft-looking pair of monsters. GW Orcs are comedic enough but I'm certainly not paying over £70 for what is effectively a childish, mass produced monster.
Especially when it seems you can buy childish, mass produced monsters for £1 a pair.
|Why they are in Italian is anybody's guess. Maybe that's why they were £1 a pack.|
|The toy has holes where a pair of wings are supposed to go. I'm sure they'll be used for something else...the wings; not the holes.|
|There's some Milliput filler in their chops.|
A little bit of painting, inking, highlighting (you know the drill) later and here are the completed not-really-Mangler Squigs. Total saving = £70.
Games Workshop, I love you dearly - you got me into the wargaming hobby and have given me lots of fun over the years. I appreciate you are a business with shareholders to appease, however, I'm really not going pay over-the-odds prices for your products. You might possibly have taken £40 in revenue for a couple of sensibly priced squigs. Instead you've taken £0 revenue from me instead.
