This topic came up on the PinsofWar Facebook page (thanks everyone for the interesting debates there.. you rock!).
In some locations at least, it seems, the new Space Marines miniatures aren’t selling very well. Sure, the Codexes go like hot cakes, because everyone want’s a new Codex! And the Limited Editions are rocking eBay.
But the new Space Marines miniatures?
Now, the theory has it that the new Space Marine minis don’t really scratch that “I-must-have-that” itch the way some earlier releases for Warhammer 40K did. New Tac Marines, plastic HQs and Veterans are nice, but few Space Marine players really “need” those, at least not right away.
The new Hunter / Stalker look nice, but they aren’t going to be the new hotness on the table, and the Space Marines Centurions don’t have a good rep (though, to my surprise, they are the second-most popular kit according to my previous poll, beaten only by the new Sternguard).
Reason enough to start a highly scientific survey on the subject. I greatly appreciate your vote!

Gimmie More Details?
Admittedly, there is only so much information to be gained from a poll.
- Did you plan to buy new Space Marines, but didn’t when you saw the miniatures?
- Did you plan to not by new Space Marines, but gave in to the new hotness?
- Are you still contemplating on what to do?
