Bundle Up With These Christmas Deals From GW

Take a look at these special holiday bundles from GW. Ho-ho-ho now I have an Astra Militarum Battlegroup.

Spoiler alert, there will be some holiday shopping bundles from GW. Take a look at what’s coming for the worlds of Warhammer 40K and the Age of Sigmar.

Spotted over on the Well of Eternity’s Facebook Page, a preview of the upcoming Christmas bundles from what looks to be a White Dwarf–though it’s not one I’ve seen before. Which, admittedly, isn’t saying all that much–I’ve only seen about three non-stellar White Dwarves in person. If we count the stars, then that number goes up by at least 1 (probably more, I’m not the best at astronomy). At any rate, here’s a look at the bundles:

Seven Boxed Sets, each coming in at $170–seems like it could be a great way to give your army that shot in the arm you keep saying they need so that you don’t feel so terrible about getting crushed for the third game in a row. Again.

Let’s start with what is empirically proven to be the best faction in 40K: The Tau. They have a bundle that looks like it includes:

A Ghostkeel

Two Stealth Suit Squads

Three Crisis Suits

A Coldstar Commander

All of which comes out to about $254 dollars if you purchase the models individually.

The Astra Militarum box we’re a little fuzzier on, but it looks like a variant of the Cadian Defence Force (RIP), modified to include Ogryns among other things–we can’t really make out the rest, but it’s 31 models of Astra Militarum, which means the whole thing probably costs 300 points.

As far as the Ork Speed Kult box goes:

It looks like you get

Three Bikers

A Battlewagon

An Ork Mek or a Meganob

Stormboyz

And then maybe a Trukk–it’s hard to tell what’s in that one. I guess we’ll know soon enough one way or the other but I’ll put the question to you:

What would you want to see in the box?

  • Txabi Etxebarrieta

    And so begins the season of Christmas cheer…

  • Fergie0044

    Does this suggest we’ll see kult of speed special rules in the eventual ork dex?

    • phobosftw

      yes,I am 93,5 % sure of it

  • I_am_Alpharius

    Definitely not from the half a dozen pages from the back of the November WD. I would imagine that will be from the Xmas Catalogue GW makes every year. I will have likely been sent to stores by now. Also matches up with this weekend pre-orders, which sees some of the Xmas focus product becoming available. Indeed, it is also the first weekend of November, which is a prime slot for any retail business to truly focus on Xmas products and sales – its about 8 weeks until Xmas Day.

  • ZeeLobby

    Not shocked there’s no new factions. Which is a shame. A DG bundle would have been nice.

    • I_am_Alpharius

      May not be all of them. Its only a single page from the Catalogue. Saying that, every year it does only tend to be 2 or 3 ‘army’ deals per game – at least physically in store. Direct may have others.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. True. Just annoying that everything has to be aged slightly before it gets cool bundles. But like you said maybe it’s on page 2.

        • Randy Randalman

          Tzeentch Arcanites and Kharadrons are less than a year old each.

          • ZeeLobby

            Let’s be honest. Even new AoS factions need the help. Was talking about 40K. Their main seller.

          • Munn

            The stormcast in the box are also less than a year old

    • Discoqing

      New faction requires investment.
      GW just wants to resell you stuff you already own
      (or more importantly, want to own)

    • dave long island

      They had a DG bundle recently: It was the 8th edition starter box.

      • ZeeLobby

        Lol. Good one ;D

  • ectoplasmic gyrator

    Imperial Agents/Talons would be great…

  • PrehistoricUF0

    Hmm, I’ve been curious to see what they were going to do for Christmas especially with how well-priced the Start Collecting boxes are. I’ll probably grab a couple of these kits, provided they contain items I want.

  • John Burns

    want a great deal on tau right now? look no further than ebay lol. ive never seen so many tau armies up for sale.

    • zeno666

      Ouch! 😉

    • DoctorBored

      Then they’ll get their Codex in a couple months and all those will be bought up.

  • Chet Atkinson

    If these have the same availability as last year’s then there will be only a few in each store and at online stores

  • Both the Overlords and arcanites are extremely tempting, I’m going to have to force myself not to start either faction…

    Thankfully the Guard one is boring, I really can’t afford to get Necromunda AND a $150 bundle box

  • SonoftheMountain

    Thank the God Emperor we have a Stormcast Eternal box. I’ve been waiting for one since they haven’t had much in the way of releases in a while

  • GrenAcid

    What is in Tzeench box?
    I should not but more before I finish my DG force….but I want more chaos….at least until GW will make new CW Eldar.
