I have very few doubts that the models won't be full sprues (think Battle for Macragge Marines,) but it doesn't change the fact that it really is a crap-ton.According to Games Workshop USA Sales Representative Mark Koscielniak, the new Warhammer 40k 5th Edition Starter Boxed Set will include a ?Crap-Ton of miniatures?.
The new boxed starter, due out in September of this year, will include the popular ?mini-rulebook?, dice, measuring sticks and the proverbial French ?Crap-Ton? of miniatures including:
1? Space Marine Commander (full sprue)
1? Space Marine Tactical Squad
1? Space Marine Terminator Squad
1? Space Marine Dreadnought
AND THAT?S NOT ALL!
The set will ALSO include:
1? Ork Warboss
2? Ork Boyz Mobs
1? Ork Nob Mob
3? Death Koptas
The retail price on this tremendous deal will be a ridiculously low $59.99! A quick analysis of the retail value of this set is valued at a cool $262 bucks, and that?s not even counting the retail value of the 3 Death Koptas, the ?mini-rulebook?, or the dice!
The new 5th Edition starter will be called ?Battle for Black Reach?.
The regular hard cover 5th Edition rulebook is due out in July, with a retail price of $49.99.
Even with this great value, Games Workshop Inc. has instructed their retailers to warn consumers that in order to off-set this incredible value,GW is forced to break the promise of not raising any prices for 5 full years. As a result, all of the GW starters (40k, Fantasy and Lord of the Rings) will now be sold at $59.99, rather than the former $49.99.
Even so, the values of these starters are astounding, as entire armies can be built for the cost of a couple of starters.
Be sure to place your pre-orders early so that you don?t miss out on this incredible deal!
I wish I played Orks or Marines. :O
