 Hello,

Are there any user pictures of the prepainted premium models? I am trying to figure out if it is worth paying the extra $30 per squad (over the discount price of the unpaintd ones.)   Seems a little steep.  Or is it more economical to get them painted by a service? I have a huge 40K paint back-log so if I am going to get into Dust Tactics/Warfare I was thinking of going the pre-painted route.

Some of them are gobsmacking beautiful (Corps Officers come to mind), while other are nothing to write home about (Red Devils, for example), but still do the job. If you have the money to spare and don't like to paint, I'd go for it.

 I get the vehicles, because I completely hate painting vehicles.  I got the Mickey bundle recently and love them…

These look very nice.  It looks like they have weathering on them.  I like them better than what I saw from the painted vehicles from the core premium set where they only have a white haze camo.

For the walkers, buy premium unless you cannot afford it. Even a Pro cannot do that well and you definitely need a spray gun. For the heroes, you may do better if you have the skills.

If you think looks are important while you play and you lack the skills and the time then I'd recommend the premium. I only buy the premium ones myself for those reasons alone. I agree the pricing is steep but I know I wouldn't have done better myself. Once you have them you seldom regret it, and only pieces I am not overly happy with are the ones that are very mono-coloured due to how they choose to design the uniforms.

 

Here are some pics I took of my Premium hammers and Otto:

Here is one of the infantry, the prepaints are pretty good, the vehicles are REALLY well done, the infantry are okay.

 I don't follow: Which one do you claim is pre-painted premium? The left or the right?

 

(Footnote for all others: The right uses customized basing that looks great, although it's not what comes with the premium)

Sorry, left is prepainted (note that I switched the bases for the customer), the right is one I painted.

Wow, thanks for the heads up!

 

FRP games still has these in stock.  I ordered one today, and it cost me $28 including shipping.

 

Considering how expensive the premium units are, it's nice to finally get a deal on one!
