Oh snap, March GW releases!

Looks like March has some cool stuff in store for 40k folks.Full price list, release dates and even a couple pics below. Courtesy of the Dakka rumour mill!

Space Wolves Thunderwolf Cavalry 3 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $54.50 $65.50 RTD New Plastic


They look about as good as any of the third party sculpts. It will be nice to finally have the options provided for you instead of having to scrape the stuff together. 
 
Space Wolves Fenrisian Wolf Pack 5 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $24.75 $29.75 RTD New Plastic

This seems a bit spendy for 5 wolves to be honest. I've only ever seen people use these as wargear so I don't know if there's going to be a  big rush to pick the little wolves up. 
 
Arjac Rockfist, The Anvil of Fenris 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $24.75 $30.00 RTD New Resin

Arjac is a pretty big pain in the butt, but I have only ever seen one person ever play him. 
 
Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 $49.50 RTD New Resin

Awesome! This model could either be a great success or flop. It all depends on what comes in the box. GW has been on a trend of providing a lot of options in their kits as of late, but this guy is also in finecast so buyer beware. 
 
Tyranid Hive Tyrant / The Swarmlord 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $53.75 $64.50 RTD New Plastic
...
Swarmlord? wtf??? That's awesome! Well, not really for me, as that guy rocks my face everytime I play against him, but it's cool to have an official model.

Tyranid Tyrannofex / Tervigon 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $57.75 $69.25 RTD New Plastic
Also pretty cool is the multi-part tervigon kit. But let's be honest here...  It's never gonna be a tyrannofex!

Chaos Hellcannon 4 Fig Box 17-Mar-12 $57.75 $69.25 RTD Repackaged Resin
I'm not sure what this is. Maybe some sort of WHFB thing? 
 
Space Wolves Grey Hunter with Wolf Standard 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $24.75 $30.00 D New Resin

Yes, that's right. 1 grey hunter for $25 
 
Space Wolves Cyberwolf 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $16.50 $19.75 D New Resin
I've never seen anyone field one of these so YMMV. 
 
Tyranid Boneswords Pack 3 x 'Pair of Boneswords' 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D New Resin
This is a bit weird. I haven't seen them release a new weapon pack in quite a while. Also, I thought these already existed? 
 
Tyranid Lash Whip & Bonesword Pack 3 x 'Lash Whip & Bonesword' 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D New Resin
Again, cool I guess?
 
Ragnar Blackmane 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
I don't know if they had a model for ragnar already, but he should make a cool figure. 
 
Ulrik the Slayer 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin

I have no opinion on Ulrik, lol
 
Njal Stormcaller 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
I wonder if this will be a resculpt or the same model in finecast? I really like the current model. But maybe they'll cast him in an ugly model and people will take him less often. Damn you stormcaller!
 
Space Wolves Iron Priest 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin

Cool. Should be pretty ballin looking

Space Wolves Rune Priest in Terminator Armour 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
I don't think I've ever seen anyone take one of these guys in TDA, but it's good to have options. 
 
Space Wolves Rune Priest 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
Do they make a model for this currently? I'm not sure. But if they don't, it should be pretty cool. 
 
Wolf Guard 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
Wolf Guard with Wolf Claws 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin

Again, more options are cool, but i think this could've been better done as a box kit with a couple bodies and packaged with the wargear options. 
 
Lukas the Trickster 1 Fig Clampack 3-Mar-12 $19.75 $23.75 D Repackaged Resin
Meh
Bjorn the Fell-Handed 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $49.50 $59.50 D Repackaged Resin
Ooohh, I'm pretty sure they haven't made Bjorn in some time. He is quite a pain in the ass and I'm surprised more people don't take him. Great, that's what we all need. More people playing space wolves...
 
Deathleaper 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $24.75 $29.75 D Repackaged Resin
Old One Eye 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 $49.50 D Repackaged Resin
Meh, so-so tyranid special characters. Moving right along
 
Tyranid Biovore 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 $49.50 D Repackaged Resin
Tyranid Spore Mine Cluster 9 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $24.75 $29.75 D Repackaged Resin
The Red Terror 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 $49.50 D Repackaged Resin
Tyranid Ripper Swarm Brood 1 Base Clampack 3-Mar-12 $13.25 $16.00 D Repackaged Resin

The big rumour was that the harpy was going to be included in this release. There's a model that looks like it in the WD pics on dakka. But people are saying it was a winged tyrant. All-in-all this looks like a good release that will fill in a few holes SW players were having to model. 
It's kinda so-so for Tyranids though. Swarmlord and tervigons are cool, but not having an official model wasn't stopping people from playing them.
