Now Stormcast Eternals and The Blade of the Blood Queen make for the best individual deals here, but all of these boxes come pretty close to one another. The Kharadron Overlords box doesn’t have a lot of miniatures, but then they have as many miniatures as there are discrete things to buy in the army, plus the Arkanaut Frigate is the thing you want anyway.

At any rate, that’s what the holidays have in store for the Age of Sigmar. If you’re a new player looking to get into the game, these boxes are a great place to start. The Blades of the Blood Queen in particular have some freaking sweet models, and those Morghast Archai will hit pretty hard at whatever they get in with. But I may be biased because I am terrified of skeletons and assume that, therefore, they must be the most powerful units in any game where they appear. This is objectively true, but some people just don’t realize that it’s true.

If you think I am wrong about the skeletons–there is one hiding inside of you whispering to you that it is nothing to be afraid of. Don’t listen to it! Bones are your mortal enemy.

    Just so people know, blightwar basically makes the Stormcast box irrelevant due to ebay box-breakers and the Death box is slightly less than that due to how similar it is to their SC box already,

  • Oggthrok

    It must just be me, but I feel like Vanguard didn’t sell. I haven’t seen Dracoth riders or liberators in army packs like this.

    Then again. I just started liking SCE, so maybe I missed the non-vanguard discounted sets.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Last year’s Stormcast Battleforce actually had Liberators and Dracoth Riders. 🙂

  • Junior Mitac

    no one plays aos at my store 🙁

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      I’ve found the most enjoyable way to start if for you and a friend to get a start collecting box each and the latest generals handbook.

      Not too heavy of an investment, but still enough models to try out all the battleplans.

      • Ghachii

        And if you don’t have any interested friends you could put an ad up in your store asking if anyone wants to split a starter box – if someone gets in touch it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to persuade them to play a game as well. Then take things from there.

  • Both the arcanites and the overlords are extremely tempting, but I’m trying to stop myself starting a new faction…

    • euansmith

      You are doing “hobby” wrong! signed, the GW Marketing Department. 😉

    • EnTyme

      In the same boat. I really want that Arcanites box for Hammerhall if not to finally start my Tzeentch army, but I just don’t have any more room for models right now. Maybe if I can get my Space Marines sold, but right now, shelf space is at a premium.

  • Rainthezangoose

    Dont like the stormcast one, but that death box is really really tempting.

    • EnTyme

      I could see a Death player buying two or three of those. Pretty much every kit in the box would be useful to have multiple copies of.

    • Jesse Cavazos

      I’m going to get it. It’ll give me a third and final Mortarch plus even more skeletons. I don’t have any Archai so that’s just icing.

  • GrenAcid

    No Nurgle 🙁
