I was thinking about this today, all of the minis in my army are plastic. Ok, ok, one is not and that's the Greater Demon but even parts of that are plastic. So the I don't think I'm the only one being excited with GW pushing the range into more plastic options. When I first saw the current Chaos sprues I had to have them and work with them, the brand spanking new Space Wolf sprues look the same way... chock full of conversion possibilities.
But, do you guys think GW should to this for special characters as well? Give them the same treatment? Think along the lines of the WFB Orc Warboss, the possibility of making 3 different bosses in one kit. Or by doing this do you think the "special" factor of the character would be lost? Or maybe enhanced? What about a plastic Calgar?
The main reason I ask this is because other than the Greater Demon, and a Demon Prince ( I have one and it has the MoT!!) I haven't bought a metal model in years. One reason is price, another is working time... my working time and therefore turn around time is much faster with plastic than metal. So how is your army growing? By plastic? By metal? By both?
