I like using this to provide some fun for us 40K fans while not forcing it on those who don't want to see it. That said I'm sad I didn't get a special Guardsman crew with the skin or making it so while applied my BDR acts like a premium. might be too much to ask for but the crew at least would have been nice considering the KV-2 ® got a BIA crew at least.

Just more cartoon tanks. This is now World of Clown Tanks. When do we get a real clown tank with a red nose and big floppy feet ?

 

Don't like looking at clown tanks?  Just select "Hide unhistorical elements" in your settings and never look at it again.

I would have jumped at this as I kept my KV-2 for the lols.  However $34 for a tier VI premium is way too much money so I passed.  If it had been around $15, I would have jumped at it, no crew needed.

The KV2 is awesome albeit overpriced for the camo cost, If it was any other tier 6 I wouldn't have bought it, but its a KV2 so...but is still doesn't feel right to pay extra for no other reason than its a popular fan favorite. As for the BDR...for $10 dollars it should be a premium, that is the cost of other tier 5 premiums, I wont buy it because, not being a premium I would have to train a crew just for that tank. That tank is not worth my time or effort to train a crew for, nor is just about any other tier 5 for that matter. However if it was a unique premium that I could play by transferring a crew from another tank then I might just pick it up for the uniqueness and collectablility, however $10 for a skin is way to much and on a very forgettable tank.

I like them! For those that have an issue with them not being historical, check the box and booom, they now look historical.  I think WG made a good compromise so both sides can have it they way they want it.

 

I do think they are overpriced, but also understand there is licensing fees from GW, so.....yeah..

Hi everyone! I have no problem with you guys selling reskinned tanks. It adds variety to the game (even if it's just a visual thing). Maybe you should create different looking skinned tanks for the tank trees too? I wouldn't mind selecting from a few options when I unlock different tanks. It might be neat if you also sold things like bushes, machine guns, nets, and other things that we could place on our tanks. These things of course would only be for visual customization, and should not have any gameplay benefits. The only complaints I have had with tank skins is that the machine gun on top of the Tiger I's cuppola looks silly and out of place. Please remove it. Otherwise I will have to go erase it off the tank skin files. Which brings up my next complaint. I have to redo all the tank skins I have made for my friends, because none of them seem to work anymore. I guess you guys switched over to the HD versions and no longer use the SD skins. Oh well......

To me the KV-2 R skin isn't all that out there. If I hadn't heard about it being a War Hammer 40,000 tank I'd just assume it was something a Russian crew all boozed up on vodka did during the war or maybe some TV or movie tank...

 

I love the idea of a premium KV-2,  though it is expensive but considering the BIA crew and the fact it's a KV-2 I might do it anyway...

Wow Bill!  I really hope you continue to recover and get stronger every day!  :honoring: 

 

Thanks man I just take life one minute at a time now. Don't get to play as much as I would like, but anyday we are toes up and not toes below the dirt, it is a great day.

I'm really happy to get a premium version of the KV-2. Been hoping for that one a long time to be honest. I really like the idea of note worthy tanks from the regular tree also being offered in a premium version. Tier 7 Ferdi with the classic 88mm gun next please. :playing:​ As for the "Ragnarok" skin, it looks alright. Rarely a fan of the non-historic "clown skins" but the Warhammer one isn't too outrageous. Especially when compared to the Patriot, the Sabaton tank or the GF advertising tanks. Only down side is I think its a bit pricey, considering its just a cut and paste copy of the regular tech tree version (plus a skin).

Speaking of which... what is the best Warhammer 40k game to get on Steam that allows you to play some tanks?

Over pricing syfy re-skins makes wg look desperate for money and wont get mine cause of the said antics.

 

 

 

Agree... Its a Tank Skin that is a HUGE waist of money.. I have most prem tanks your can buy but (SORRY CHARLIE) You can keep this Skin.. I can strip it and load in on my own

 

And yes it looks like they are trying to cash in on the way out???

WG you are doing a great job in the Frontline add. Whoever thought to make a KV2 a prem tank needs FIRED!!!

I've wanted a premium KV 2 for a while and I bought it right off. I prefer historical looks but I'm not bothered with the low key stuff on this model. I'm not surprised some people are angry though- you could hand these out for free and those guys would still be unhappy.

 

It was an insult to any of us that support them buying prem tanks... It is a Give us your money we needed it the game is die-in and we need to cash in NOW

  • KV2 pricepoint incommensurate with Tier VI premiums (should have been available Skin/Style only.)
  • BDR Mordian is a 5$ skin maximum. Bad tier, mediocre vehicle, uninspired ugly skin.

 

That said, Ork styles for Japanese Heavies would be absolutely perfect. Adeptus Mechanicus styles would suit the Americans; a Custodes Type 59 skin would take minor tweaking from the Chinese golden dragon one. -- Ultramarine French tanks? The Heavies/national base paint lends itself to that (the Halloween ones in particular.) TOG Thousand Sons skin? Tzeench STB . . . endless possibilities.

 

-- Overall, the KV2 Imperial Guard tank is spot on aesthetically, and the Mordian adequate if uninspired. The price had to be half or less for a tank most already own/consider a tech tree keeper. Would like to see the SU-152 Ultramarine skin from Blitz make it over, maybe the other one as a Sherman/PZ IV skin as well. Warhammer Campaigns/Reward Tanks & Skins would have a lot of potential as well (Inquisitor/Techpriest crews :0)
