How much does it cost to play Warlord?


Recommended Posts

"How much does it cost to play Warlord?" I get asked this question a lot. My past calculations have provided my standard answer of "About $150-$175 for the minis"

 

I just calculated the cost of a handful of the top 10 armies from the ReaperCon tournament. I skipped #3 because it was the same faction as #2, and I skipped #5 because it included a mini we don't make yet (Reptus Broodmaster).

Below is the MSRP to buy all the minis in the winning armies:

 

1) Franklin Baker: Crusaders - 996 points = $134.89

2) Vince Hendricks - Mercs - 999 points = $185.63

4) Daren Puryeur - Elves - 997 points = $153.75

6) Kenneth Warren - Overlords - 1000 points = $146.79

 

So it looks like my answer is spot on. It will cost about $150 to buy a 1000 point Warlord army. ::):

Let's be real, shall we. Who doesn't already own quite a few of these models just for grins? Before Warlord hit the tables, I owned models from Elves and Overlord and Darkspawn. These numbers are for the purist with no mini collection to draw from. Does such a creature exist?

Well, I have decided agianst the bloodstones, Icingstead all the way, those frost giants are way too cool to pass up.
