We’ve seen the rules already and these crates are now confirmed for release June 6, 2016. And (it’s hard to see) the price point is $50/£30. That’s a bit of a bummer as the rumormill was first reporting the pricing was a little cheaper. Still, it’s inline with Games Workshop’s other terrain kits…But man, I still wish that $33 price point was true. This is why we report rumors and confirm with pics when possible. If you don’t see a pic, apply salt to the rumor.

White Dwarf #123 Round-Up

 

Now I’ve got to rethink that whole Pyrovore Army I totally wasn’t working on…

  • Arthfael

    In 40k, even your toothbrush comes with a pintle-mounted storm bolter… I love it!

    • LeroyJenkinss

      I wish my lasgun came with a storm bolter 🙁

      • Syra

        in 40k your stormbolter comes with a flashlight…

    • Severius_Tolluck

      naw, weapons are not the rage in 40k… that’s skulls, your tooth brush bristles are all little skulls! Even the White Dwarf goes “and of course, Skulls!” oy….

  • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

    £30 is a silly price. At £20 it was fair. I was going to buy two or three sets but I don’t think I’ll bother now. There was me thinking the new boss had reined in the excesses, but this and £18 for the enginseer (when I’m pretty sure the old version was about £10) means nothing has really changed.

    • Commissar Molotov

      I think other manufacturers make METAL BAWKSES. I sure wouldn’t care if you proxied ’em in.

      • Chris. K Cook

        Wouldn’t even be a proxy. Stick a couple of spare tanl Storm bolters on them and it’s a reasonable counts as. They can’t all look the same.

    • Badgerboy1977

      Seems like a perfectly reasonable price to me personally but each to their own.

      • DeadlyYellow

        I certainly agree. It pulls it out of an impulse buy range and (for me at least) inspires more deliberated thinking as a potential purchase.

        Unfortunately, the result rarely favors GW.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        its roughly double the cost of comparable shipping containers on the market. I’m prepared to pay a bit extra for plastic and the extra bits, but not double. Plus it takes it well out of impulse purchase territory.

        • Badgerboy1977

          I guess that depends on your perspective.
          If you just want cheap terrain that does the job then fair enough but personally I prefer the higher quality, styling and better material of these to anything that’s currently on the market and I’m willing to pay more for that.

          Of course getting 20 – 25% off from an online retailer helps but even without that I still feel that £30 is reasonable for what they are.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            For sure we all have different priorities. But even compared to GWs other terrain these are expensive.

          • NightShade2k

            there are three of them in a set as long as rhino, as wide as a space marine base with bolters etc and other gribblys attached that works out 1 for £10 not sure that counts as super expensive tbh considering what an actual rhino costs… thats not including the Prometheian Barrels and 12 supply crates with imperial logos…

    • rtheom

      I’m generally okay with some of the higher prices for hero figures, but I agree with you here. I’m kinda disappointed. I’m not mentally willing to pay as much for terrain as I am troops, and this just went from an immediate “get 3” to a “maybe get 1 eventually”. Hrrrmmmm… oh well…

      • DeadlyYellow

        Better to just buy the troops and use the packaging to proxy in two shipping containers.

    • Moonsaves

      I’ll be getting one if these, but only because as an ork player I want the extra bits. I think it’d make an amazing trukk trailer and it even has two hatches I can stick an ork or grot in.

      Every release is an ork release.

  • Talos2

    Aren’t they $33? £30 is an extremely poor exchange rate if they are, especially as they’re prob made in nottingham

    • DeadlyYellow

      Since it is the smallest pic in the article, I guess it would be easy to miss the pricing info clipped from WD.

      Was also restated in the text blurb with bold red letters, but who reads those honestly?

      • Talos2

        I guess £10 each is ok. Plus bits.

  • Malthrak

    The Stormbolters look really hamfisted, like a random bit glued haphazardly to a terrain piece for no reason.

    Also…$50 for shipping container terrain…really?

  • Admiral Raptor

    $50 Crates! These things just keep getting more hilarious.

  • euansmith

    “Your package is here, courtesy of Ultimate Persecution Services… DIE HERETIC!!!”

  • JPMcMillen

    I had a feeling that $33 was a bit low… but $50???? I know it’s 3 large crates plus a whole bunch of smaller containers but that still seems a bit high.

    • Shiwan8

      Will you pay 50 for 3 crates or couple of buildings? Hard decicions.

      • JPMcMillen

        For what they’re offering I’d be fine if the price was closer to $40.

        • Boondox

          I’m sure they’ll be on Ebay for that price eventually…

        • euansmith

          I guess if you can get them from a reseller at 25% off, they will be more like $40; unless GW are putting the kibosh on on-line discounts?

    • euansmith

      The Mobile Infantry made me the man I am today.

    • generalchaos34

      know more?

  • Ryan Cunningham

    if my opponent tries to hid his forces behind one of those containers I will destroy them with a helfrost cannon

  • petrow84

    Though it was posted before, it well deserves recognition.

    METAL BAWKSES!

  • euansmith

    Do these come with a decal sheet; like “Fragile”, “This Way Up” and “Handle With Care”?
