    Maybe I'm just in a sour mood, but I haven't been wowed by anything in B4 yet, usually by this stage I'm fantasizing about getting my hands on some of what's on display, but the forges theat drive my miniatures lust are cold and empty. Or Summink


    Not just you. The wraiths are cool, but I'm not sure if they're worth pledging for by themselves. I'll put a dollar in if nothing else to get access to the pledge manager.

    Could be that my enthusiasm is dampened by still waiting on my Bones 3 rewards. Not that I'm bitter about it, but it does make me think twice.

    Heard good things about Necromunda, so that's a plus. But also saw that the box set they did for it was a limited release that's sold out now. Which bums me out, because I don't have terrain suitable for 40k and I've read that the box set had some good terrain in it.


    Another plus is that it has a severely limited unit selection, so I can get a Necron force built with just a few unit boxes. A box of warriors, a box of immortals, and a box of lychguard will have every option covered. Which, in the grand scheme of things, is pretty good. It would mean that for rules and every possible configuration for one army I'd be out about $200. Not an insignificant cost, but also not something that would send me running like trying to do that for a full size 40k army.


    Raging Heroes is doing a Kickstarter over the next couple of weeks for a set of gothic sci fi printed card terrain. Should be a great choice for filling up a table with terrain for 40K and Shadow War without breaking the bank.

    Otherwise you could look into Mantic's plastic terrain, there's some cool industrial kits in their sci fi line.

    Oooo that's what I'm talking about. Any Ideas as to when?


    Looks like they're July releases, possibly towards the end of the month though. Here's what the book looks like:


    From the description on the Warhammer Community site:

    "[...] this 103-page guidebook is the perfect guide for any Warhammer 40,000 beginner, giving a thorough overview of the universe of the 41st Millennium, how the game works and the different armies you can collect. It also comes with an Easy to Build Intercessor and a set of core rules, allowing you to take the first steps of your journey for around the price of a White Dwarf."

    Less a bonus, and more a $10 mini with a glossy ad.


    True, but the Khorne slaughterpriest they had in the WD a few months back was worth it. The mag seemed to have some decent game content as well, but I haven't bought another one since so I can't say whether it's consistent in that regard.

    I'l keep and eye out thanks for the heads up.


    I found some on ebay but they are groups of 5 or specialty characters. I was kind of hoping to just get a standard Primaris Space Marine.


    There's also going to be a getting started booklet coming out, with background and hobby info for new players along with the basic rules, which comes with a single Primaris marine and costs the same as an issue of White Dwarf.

    Sounds like you're coming down with something there. Perhaps you'd better go visit the Inquisition just to be sure.


    Just take a seat on that charred and blackened chair over there. The purg- ahh, treatment will begin shortly.

    I don't know anyone that would want them.

    Plus, I don't play. So I don't really want all the game bits either.


    I don't think they'll be too difficult to find separately, but I'm still annoyed.


    Not difficult at all, the minis from First Strike are also going to be released as new "Easy to Build" snap-together kits. Though of course, the starter set is going to be better overall value.

    Looks like there is cardboard terrain?


    Do both of these sets have Horrid, Squelshy, Malformed, Chaos marines?


    (opposed by Smurf Marines...?)


    If I had a ton of money** I would buy these sets and have someone paint all the regular marines bright metallic gold (like AoS Sigmarines) and I would buy all the AoS Sigmar boxes and have those painted UltraMarines Ultramarine Blue...just to see if I could make anyone's head explode. 



    **a ton of spare money, I mean a lot. 


    At least with the First Strike set, the cardboard terrain is actually the box turned inside out, which is quite cool, and the battle mat is paper.

    And you're right, both sets have Squish Marines and Smurfs (though the marines don't actually have chapter iconography sculpted on).

  9. Couple of new starter sets being previewed today.

    First Strike seems comparable to the Storm of Sigmar set for AoS, and includes the new Primaris Reiver squad (new marine commandos).




    While the Know No Fear set is similar to the new AoS starter Thunder & Blood, containing stripped-down armies from the Dark Imperium box (one less squad each and only a single character). No big hardback book, but still includes the basic rules.




    I really like this three-tier approach to starter sets that GW is going with now. The Dark Imperium set is a bit much for me I think, but either one of these boxes is enough to whet my appetite.

  10. Picked up a second hand squad of neophyte hybrids for my Genestealer Cult army (just assembled and primed), a friend of mine has a Leman Russ that I can have, and I'm about to get a hold of some aberrants.

    So far that gives me a magus, 40 neophytes, 20 purestrains, 2 Leman Russ tanks and 4 aberrants.

  11. I didn't end up pre-ordering Dark Imperium, but a friend of mine did she picked it up at the midnight release. I'll just look at picking up the Chaos and Xenos II index books soon so I can pay with my Chaos Marines and Genestealer Cult.

    Threw a couple of squads at each other the other day to try out the new rules, they seem pretty good. Love being able to split firepower from squads.

    I'd go so far as to exempt Reaper.... mainly because on several occasions, during Kickstarters, there have been items depicted only with Talin concept art that I did not buy. And then later kicked myself for not buying.

    Then again, MOST of the Kickstarter stuff they've done has simply been photos of the models or at least greens. I can see where an outfit that's gone completely digital can't necessarily do this. But the least you can do is produce a product that is true to the rendered depiction.


    If you've decided that they deserve a pass, then that's cool. But I remember people getting real bent out of shape about Cthulhu's ventral seam in the first KS, and I think even some of the female fighters from B3 got some people's goat for straying from the concept art. So I'd still make the recommendation.

    Still waiting for the Wizkids minis to become available domestically, and I'll likely pick up a couple of minis when I'm ordering something else.

    How many dragons does Reaper have that haven't been turned into bones yet? Sounds like an expedition through the catalog is in order!


    I think Reaper have expressed more of an interest in making new dragons than redoing metal ones in Bones.
