Talk of this is making me want another guard army. Do they even exist anymore? 

 

 

Guard is so 80s man. Now they are "Astra Militarum". New rules slant towards favouring greater numbers. But as always you have fun playing tanks, tanks, tanks, tanks. Crazy shooting DPTurn.

I hope these tanks are coming to Asia soon. Or are they behind some licensing deal which makes them EU only? like the Valkyrie chromical tanks?

Please please please bring them to asia!

 

They will most likely come to Asia and NA since WG has said before that if 40k happens, it will happen for everyone.

Also because GW is far more liberal with their video game intellectual property than SEGA, they're not a video game company after all.

 

I'm more interested in the future of selling styles for Wargaming, this opens up the possibility of other collaborations selling primarily the styles, which is probably cheaper to develop for WG since it's just a skin as opposed to a new tank, they just have to yank a tank out of the tech tree, slap on a premium bonus and give it a new style. Would you buy a premium M3 Lee with all pink style?

I'm also wondering if they're going to change the cosmetics of existing tanks like Rudy, Fury, Liberte, Patriot etc. so they use styles instead of them being permanent camo.

Until the recent GW renaissance/ownership change (Just over a year ago they threw out the longtime CEO. Since then they've really turned things around simply by... doing what GW fans have asked them to do for years?), GW was on life support and made the vast majority of it's profit licensing it's IP (think of all the GW-based video games) rather than from it's actual wargames.

 

So continued IP milking still makes sense, because why not? They got pretty good at it and there's no reason to stop so long as people are buying.

$40 AUD for 6 x BIA crewmen and a skin for a KV2?

Why not use the cash to buy a T8 prem (Ravioli is the same price) and just buy the tech tree KV2 to have derpy fun and train a Rusky crew up?

I like WH 40K, but not THAT much.

I'm actually pretty surprised there isn't even any gold to "justify" it or anything like that.

 

I'd be tempted to 40k-ify my BDR...  but $13 for a camo set? LOL no. And worse, it uses the stock turret's appearance, confusing things unnecessarily.

I'm guessing part of the price goes to Games Workshop, or to make up for the sum WG spent to get the IP license for these two tanks.

 

I'm just waiting to see if we can get a Basilisk.

Yes, the Ragnarok style has unhistorical status so people who don't want to see it won't see it.

Well it's not like there's any real logic behind the prices of things in the shops, the cost of developing a tier 8 premium tank shouldn't be so different to the cost of developing premium tanks of any other tier.

And in this case they didn't even have to design a tank, it's just a skin, the tank damage model and stats are all copy pasted.

People could always get it for free as a mod.

 

File locations:
World_of_Tanks\res\packages\vehicles_level_06.pkg\vehicles\russian\R77_KV2\_skins\WH\

World_of_Tanks\res\packages\vehicles_level_05.pkg\vehicles\french\F05_BDR_G1B\_skins\WH\

Extract with 7zip or other file archivers.

To use as a mod, copy all the files from the WH folders to:

World_of_Tanks\res_mods\1.0.1.1\vehicles\russian\R77_KV2

World_of_Tanks\res_mods\1.0.1.1\vehicles\french\F05_BDR_G1B

Respectively.

Since WG start selling official skin does that mean there's a chance for official GuP skins on WoT PC?

Don't post other video games in the forums.

I can see the skins and maybe even voicepacks being sold in the future.

I'll just copy it from the game files though.

It is the fact that the tank is a prem tank and can now take any RU HT crew

oh so reskinning an existing tank in the tech tree now needs an extra value add for GW.

 

 

Bullshit.

 

Should be priced at an acceptable tier 5/6 premium price.
