THE STORY
Mere days after the loss of their home world Sotha, the Scythes of the Emperor stagger to the Chapter outpost at Miral Prime to lick their wounds and formulate a campaign of vengeance against the tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken. Devastated and leaderless, these Space Marines now look to their only surviving officer, the reluctant Captain Thracian, for guidance. But the psychic shadow of the xenos is growing in the warp once more, and the bastion atop the Giant’s Coffin mesa may yet become the site of a most ignoble last stand…

~Who’s picking up what?

  • Randy Randalman

    The re-boxed Liberators and Paladins are much cheaper now. They went from $50 for 5 to $62 for 10. 38% price reduction is a nice step in the right direction. All of the Tzeentch stuff was priced nicely too. Quite a trend!

  • pompeyladBFP

    Wow.. Price reduction, the boxsets seem are decent price compared to 2 piece starter set models now

  • Sleeplessknight

    Depending on how you look at it, they’re either rewarding the customers with better deals or lowering the price per model because they’re desperate to sell this $#!+.

    • Tim Lester

      considering that AoS(despite the outcrys/boycotts of WHFB fans) is a huge success (from a sales and profit standpoint), and has brought in a lot of new players, i would say its a reward.

      • Karru

        I’d say that the old price of Sigmarines was too high for their target audience so making them cheaper is most likely meant to drag in more people. They really want to sell Sigmarines, because that way GW can just do Space Marines to them. Release new stuff for them “constantly” so people keep buying. If the core is cheap, it is easier to convince people to start it.

        • NovaeVox

          And yet the price of Space Marines creeps ever upward. With the exception of some of the recent bundle boxes, of course. Well, perhaps there’s the hope of 10 Terminators for $62 (US). 🙄

          • Karru

            Tactical Squad costs 35€ and has 10 models. This is the core choice for the army that doesn’t require much of them. Meanwhile, Skitarii costs 31€ for 10 and you need a lot more of them. Same thing with Orks and the like.

            Both of these are core units for Sigmarines, so making them cheaper is smart move. This makes people more interested in starting them because the core is cheap.

          • NovaeVox

            Ah, true. I was thinking more price per cc of plastic crack, given the models size. I forgot to consider GW’s pricing model by unit type. Paladin retributors are probably more equivalent to termies in army composition and those aren’t getting a price reduction this time around.

      • Razerfree

        The AoS starter was indeed a success due to the great value. But the unit boxes are extremely hard to sell at their current price point. Just two boxes of 5 Liberators almost cover the cost of the two-player starter set, add in a clampack hero like the Knight-Heraldor and you reach £75 on the dot. It shouldn’t be that costly to expand a £30ish 18 model force. Most people went for the Start Collecting boxes anyway.

        • Tim Lester

          i never meant to imply that they were cheap. merely that the rules gamble paid off well enough that they can finally start to lower prices without upsetting the shareholders. the prices kept going up because the player base kept getting smaller so they had to make more $$ of each remaining player. now that the player base is growing quickly they can charge less

          • Eldar are Chaos now

            It’s not shareholders you need to worry about its retailers. They have boxes now they know they can’t move- because the customer base knows a better deal is around the corner. Growing games need lots of support, I’d be keen to see how other retailers respond.

          • Tim Lester

            that unfortunately will be something the retailers have to deal with. gw is owned by shareholders and ultimately every decision they make has to benefit the shareholders first. and from my experience most of the retailers have much lower numbers of gw product stock than they used to (except 40k but the 40k deals tend to be limited in time or quantity), so a box or two here or there wont makemuch of a difference. my flgs only has a handful of AoS unit boxes, no starter sets and a crap ton of 40k. so even if they arent able to sell the few boxes they have it wont be a noticeable loss in the big picture. the official GW stores will be fine, GW may even have those stores send the models back to get repackaged like they did with most of the WHFB boxes.

          • Eldar are Chaos now

            I don’t think the shareholders want to lose the sales channels that retailers provide… they are a massive customer after all.

          • Tim Lester

            Maybe they want gw to shift to mostly online. Due to poor stock in my area all the player i know already go online. Without having to sell at wholesale the profit margin goes up.

          • ZeeLobby

            What retailers provide is exposure though. That can be way more valuable than actual sales.

          • ZeeLobby

            Especially now that GW stores no longer exist.

    • wibbling

      Please, point us toward you £12m profit making, market leading miniatures designing, dividend returning company?

      No? Then perhaps you should be quiet.

      • Sleeplessknight

        I’m sorry you struggle with english. But I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to say.

        • Shawn

          Just to be devils advocate here: It is funny when you say someone has trouble with English and you don’t capitalize “English.”

      • zeno666

        Sure, here you got https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/index/

        Oh, only £12m… didn’t see that one.

  • Nathan

    Anyone know what the UK prices are?

    • Burnt Angel

      Book £30
      Hunters £37.50
      Hounds £15
      Warscroll cards £15

      • Axis Mundi

        And an educated guess at the re-boxed Liberators and Judicators would be that they will be £40, and the Prosecutors will be £50. Still pricey, but not the previous madness.

        • Burnt Angel

          I’ll be honest, would have preferred them to keep them in a bundle of 5 and just drop the price. But such is not the GW way. Now, even if you have existing models of that unit, you are kind of forced to pay ‘extra’ for more models that you might not necessarily need or want in your army. But hey ho. For first time collectors it is no doubt a better deal.

          • wibbling

            Yes, but the mould exists. The expensive bit has been paid for, so it makes more sense to sell more models and get more value from the mould and packaging at a slightly higher price than to have it sit idle.

    • Nathan

      Cheers!

  • Yay more Space Marine Battles. Read three of these and none of them was any interesting. They really are just gratuitous battles.

    • georgelabour

      Most of them aren’t very good. Legion of The Damned was almost false advertising IMO, and the last one I read I don’t even recall the name of. XD

      However some of the earlier ones such as Hellsreach and Battle of The Fang are some of the best bolter pron ever made. Not to mention providing nice little peeks into other aspects of the Imperium.

      I also kind of liked Death of Antagones even if they spent all of one chapter on the planet in question.

      • Ironically the best parts of these books is when they don’t focus on the Marines.

        • georgelabour

          Wrath of Iron is probably the best example of that. It singlehandedly put me off from ever making an Iron hands list while also making me want to run some Harakoni Warhaks.

          • Shawn

            Funny you should say that. This is the book that got me into Iron Hands after reading a couple of the short stories.

            I’ll admit I haven’t read any of the books that focus on xenos or chaos, but when BL constantly spits out books and short stories quicker than a racing cheetah there are bound to be some bad apples.

  • Joshua Overbeck

    I just bought two boxes of Judicators… 🙁

  • frankelee

    Well AoS is always going to be the struggling little sister to 40K. And it’ll remain that way because Fantasy Flight, CMON, and a huge number of smaller board games and war games are providing younger gamers with cooler options.

    • Munn

      AoS is doing perfectly fine at the moment. In fact if rumors are to be believed it could close the gap on 40k in the next 1-3 years.

      • Admiral Raptor

        The only thing that I question is how 40k makes any money at all these days. When even Goatboy is calling it a garbage fire in his articles.

        • Pete Croucher

          Goatboy is just angry because his copy/paste function bugged out and he needed to type the word ‘knight’ so many times it lost all meaning.

    • Noah Jerge

      I think the price would be the bigger issue.

  • MechBattler

    Yeeesh. The price creep.

    • Munn

      price drop actually

  • Horacio Rivas

    I like those sigmarines pelts. #PETA

  • Admiral Raptor

    Considering the price of the other Stormcast stuff, this represents a decent price cut. I do hope that Death gets some love soon though, the golden boys just don’t do it for me.

  • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

    Good fodder for my Shock Legion.
