Check the prices of full units before you splurge on their sprue sale. A box of 40 Macedonian pikemen is $35 USD but to get 40 pikemen – e. 10 sprues – it comes to $45.50 USD even after the free sprues. I initially assumed it would be cheaper and almost fell into the trap!

I did buy three scorpian sprues – and paid for two. Haven't checked yet if I would have saved money just buying the boxed set.

Good to know.

I checked this as well and definitely not a good deal if you want a whole unit. Great deal if you just need some bits and bobs to fill things out though. I remember a while back they did a 50% off spruce sale and I purchased an entire ECW army. Be great if they did that again!

Yeah, last big sprue sale I picked up 300+ American Rev troops plus some other stuff. This sale is bleah.

Thirded. I was exited when I saw the ad, but quickly realized it was a non-starter.
