Why would you think that? Stuff from china is cheap because lax labour laws and an economy built around exporting cheap goods, not because they are technologically inferior or poor craftsmen. I mean most high end electronics at least contain components that were made in china.

short answer: fucked
long anser: life will find a way
the codex is bad but it's internal balance is better than its predecessor
IB and psy powers makes everything more difficult but at the same time more tactical and entertaining from my pov at least
it kind of gets right the feel of a swarm army: everything is vulnerable, everything comes in great numbers, targets are everywhere so unless the enemy is able to choose wisely where to concentrate fire and/or cqc you can outplay him
almost everything is shit and that makes the codex balanced on some parts
must take units are basically 4 imho

Esp their Emperor champion, 2 wounds, no eternal warrior and he has NO synergy with the BT chapter tactics, as he has superior versions of them all.

Well it's definitely not competitive, and it has a very linear play style. Personally I rank it around the Chaos Marine codex, but with less variation available

Do you want to put your army on the table, advance in a straight line like space invaders, and have the enemy shoot at whatever he thinks is the best target? Seeing as that's the only method you have of getting troops onto objectives, that's what happens. Lack of spores/transports/usable infiltrators/fast scoring units is a hole that is hard to fill.

That said, you can bring ALOT of bodies to the table, and if the enemy actually get close you can punish them for it. Devourers hurt, no matter what is carrying them (I favour termagant squads going 50/50 Devourers and Spike Rifles). Don't fall into the trap of thinking it's an assaulting army. It's a swarm army with lots of close range fire-power, that happens to be able to assault if the enemy gets close enough.

Synapse is SO important. I'm finding roughly half the army needs to have it, at least. The most recent game I played I tabled my opponent in, but lost 3/5 synapse creatures. And of those two, one had only one wound left. Flying Tyrants are deceptively fragile, don't rush them forward into gunlines and expect them to live. Keep them on the flanks harassing and defending against aircraft, and only move them in if they need to cover a hole in the synaptic-web. Tyranid Primes on the other hand are remarkably hard to shift. Mostly because they're are as tough as the unit you attach them to: 30 gaunts or two Carnefexes are obvious choices.

All in all, I see Tyranids kind of like the Imperial Guard. If the guard weren't allowed to take Heavy Weapons Teams, Transports, or Artillery, and all Infantry kill themselves if the Commissar dies. But everyone gets a free bayonet, so it evens out, right? No, it's not a good codex. Playable in casual circles if you don't mind the repetitive play style, but not good by any measure.

I buy FW and don't buy counterfeits, but I've been in dozens and dozens of recaster threads, and basically the reoccuring themes are:

- I'm sticking it to the man! Screw GW!

What these guys don't realize is that even just by playing the game using models that look like GW's models, they are helping out GW's business by giving them presence and advertisement.

- I can't afford real FW stuff but I want them.

Entitlement? Maybe. But miniature prices are fairly arbitrary to begin with and who is anyone to say what someone should or should not deserve to own.

- I want to show off how awesome I am on /tg/.

These people are usually tripfaggots. For whatever reason, /tg/ will insult you if you buy GW/FW and praise you if you buy recasts. So it's a self-perpetuating circlejerk of pro-bootlegging.

- I'm a newfag and this sounds like an amazing deal! What is chinaman/CCON/ZC/taobao/yoymart and where can I find out how to order from them because I don't know what an archive or lurking is!

Usually these people aren't aware of the dangers of recast resin. Mainly just the brittleness of small and thin parts. It doesn't help that rabid recastfags deny these accusations constantly. I've handled recasts and it's true. FW resin will have some yield and you can bend it pretty far until it snaps. Finecast even further (as it's very soft and pliable). Recast stuff just straight up snaps, so try not to drop them on hard surfaces or let them snag on your foam. Large chunky things like tanks and Riptides are fine.

- Miniatures are miniatures. They look pretty much the same.

Why wouldn't someone with this attitude save a bunch of money?

I don't speak for everyone, but I'm pretty sure a vast majority of people pirate books and tv shows and movies and video games. Yeah we all support stuff sometimes and buy stuff occasionally, but MANY people pirate. It's a normal thing these days.

Sure it does, supply and demand.

When you take your recasts and play 40k at your FLGS you are one less person playing a non-GW game and then when people go in and see everyone playing 40k they have less reason to play Warmahorde or Infinity or Malifaux or Dropzone Commander or X-Wing or whatever.

They go to /tg/ and ask for advice and people say "don't play GW play something else" but their FLGS is filled with people playing 40k using recasts.

Im considering yoymart for an order: The Great Unclean One, a Plague Hulk, the Nurgle Prince + Herald, a Demon Engine and several Death Guard sets.

Through Forgeworld my order would be around $700. through yoymart it comes to less than half of that.

My concerns are of course quality, and tourneys detecting them. There is a pretty big and active WH and 40k community here in Phoenix. The local GW store is one of three local shops that has games running daily, and tournaments monthly. yoymart models would not be allowed in the GW tourneys. Are theygood enough to use at a GW?

Its Like ebay, except in china, and often dealers wont ship outside of China so would need a middle man. I used it because I was already ordering some nerf stuff and it just made sense to grab some plastic crack at the same time.

I haven't bought directly from Zhanchui, But I have heard good things, Hopefully someone else can fill you in.

The seller is required to tell them how much the items are being sold for and usually some evidence of the transaction.

If not (or something seems off), they'll hold your item and contact you about it. You then have to send them a copy of your receipt to show it's all above water.

Easy as that. So worst case you might get it delayed for 2 weeks (though I get it only takes half that for you German fags, our services in the UK are shite).

You need to pay 20% import tax and you MAY need to pay a customs fee for the pleasure of having them root around your stuff (we do in the UK).

Why do you think a weekly 30 page magazine has as much content as the monthly one?

Seriously. Please explain to me how this is the very first conclusion you came to. Because the first thing I thought of was, maybe all 4 of the weekly ones are just the monthly one split into four magazines. But I could be wrong.

1 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

This is literally what you said. I think the word you want is "double to triple" and not "quadruple". Quadruple pace means they release 4 big magazines a month.

Quite fucking honestly I have nothing to rationalize. I pay for a good that I want (GW minis). I buy some from GW. Then I am introduced to a provider of the same good, at a better price. The recast minis come with a drawback; they are brittle, but the guy I buy from casts them very well, so brittleness is the only problem. Yes, GW is having their copyright infringed, but hat is their problem, not mine. China never has given a single fuck about western copyright laws. You can get anything in a cheap knockoff from china. From minis to movies to furniture, its all available. Yes, re-caster vendors like yoybuy are nicking money from GW's wallets, but that is GW's problem to fix. Its not illegal to buy a counterfeit Rolex watch from a dude on the street, nor is it illegal to buy recast miniatures. It is illegal to sell recast minis, but no to own, buy, or make them. Just because the consumer goes into the purchase aware of the counterfeit nature of their acquired product does not make it more illegal
