Here’s the latest WFB 9th’s starter box contents will include? Come take a look at one very untraditional set of minis.
WFB 9th Box Content
– WFB 9th Starterbox follows the “Stormclaw/Exterminatus”, with almost all existing minis and a unique boxed-set only hero model.
2 Warriors of Chaos units
1 Daemon unit
1 Chaos Warmachine
2 Lords (1 unique)
Forces of Light:
2 Empire infantry units
1 Empire cavalry unit
1 Elf unit
1 Warmachine (Dwarf possible)
2 Lords (1 mounted, 1 foot)
Painting guide book
Army lists book
And let’s compare that to the last set of info:
The results of the End Times will be directly reflected in the armies included in 9th Edition
Will include good guys (the Forces of Light) versus Chaos – in a loose fashion.
The Boxed Set is set in a former city of the Empire (save your breathe, it’s NOT Mordheim), but luckily the End Times offers up plenty of new choices.
Boxed Set includes a campaign at a skirmish level and is firmly designed to introduce new players into the game at this smaller model-count level.
Look for an increased focus on “Heroes & Characters”, even at the skirmish level of the game.
WFB 9th will kick off a new set of products that cover not only the new surviving factions, but new modular terrain pieces that support the game at all size levels and reflect the new “Post End-Times” world.
So it looks like a boxed set right inline with the 40K Campaign sets, and presents a “sampler platter” of different army models in one box. Perfect for giving new gamers a little taste of a bunch of different faction’s aesthetic, and to spark interesting starting new forces. The real question is are we looking at very small 5-10 man units in these boxes emphasizing skirmish, or larger unit sizes with a bunch more models.
