Torn on the Kharadron set.

I’m not interested myself, because Gitz. But on one hand, it’s a lot of useful stuff. But, it doesn’t strike me as a cohesive force unto itself?

Tzeentch one is a clear winner though.

It is, but there's no way it doesn't cost at least $50 USD more than the others.

Eh, probably not. I wouldn't use 'em in 9th 40k, either. Maybe 9th Age. Reaper's Warlord. I dunno. If it's well under $200 it'd be worth it still for painting. I can find a gaming use for 'em eventually.

The Necron box is tempting if the price is good, don't have a Triarch Stalker or the flyer yet, more warriors would be useful and don't have any Deathmarks. I do have a unit each of Lychguard and Triarch Praetorians, but could always make the alternate options for one (or bulk up the numbers). Not sure I need another Canoptek Spyder or Technomancer, but still could be worthwhile.

Just from discussion here and a few other places I get the impression that the Tzeentch box will be the first to sell out.

I was going to reply with "they can only do that so many times" then I realised they keep putting out very samey boxes for guard, tau and nids have had more stealers in boxes than they want, need or deserve to be punished with.

Speculation.

Lack of Gaunts in the Nid box - possible sign they’re getting redone for the Codex?

That tyranid one is pretty much perfect to fill out my 2k list. As is the necron one.

Only one will be purchased though, now I just need to decide which.

A price would be amazing right about now GW.

Nah. Gw just can't resist dumping genestealers in every single time they do a nid box.

10 models but like 900 points. It's pretty legit, as you can just convert Brokk to a regular floaty Endrinmaster and that right there is a legal 1000 point list (if endrinmaster is your leader, endrinriggers are battleline, IIRC) with room to add some Arkanauts or Thunderers on your Frigate.

Interesting there's no stormcast box, I guess that's because they've just got a broken realms box? I wonder if that suggests the ones we got christmas boxes for won't get broken realms boxes (if we get more of those).

Will defo consider purchasing the Tzeentch, SM & AM boxes, hopefully the price will be a pleasant surprise.

I'm weirdly happy that there is no Stormcast box this year, I have an irrational dislike of them (although the female models are admittedly much better than the males).

Jesus GW, figure it out. If you want people to buy reivers make them worth taking.

They know the Space Marine sets always sell out regardless of the contents, be that to scalpers or impulse buyers, so they probably figure this is a good way of shifting stock with guarantee they'll be bought.

GW's AoS team seemed to realise and accept that Marines don't need to be the focus 95% of the time I suppose and I'm not complaining. Regardless of the Sigmarines much more 'subdued' popularity they're still the poster boys of AoS (no matter how little GW milks it compared to 40k) and expected a Battleforce for that reason.

It was 6 skyfires/enlightened for 47 models total.

The Lord of Change has gone up quite a bit in price over the last two years and the skyfires have always been "overpriced" which diminishes the value of the box a little in my mind. It is a bit like when you are about to take advantage of a Buy One Get One Free offer at the supermarket but realise the product was £1.20 last month, but is now £2.00 this month, you are still making a saving but they fudged it a little to reduce the saving.

Still swapping a Shaman for a Gaunt Summonr and 10 Tzaangors / 3 Skyfires for a Lord of Change will be an improvement if the price stays the same.

I dunno man. This one seems bit like a dudd for SM.
Compared to Dark imperium, SC, shadowspear & indomitus its the worse of the bunch and most people would have got all of those or bits they wanted by now.
One might buy it for the invictor but then trying to offload the rest is going to be hard.

I wouldn't bother to scalp it.
And I've scalped a bunch of stuff before..

The Tzeentch is tempting, and I am not playing AoS. As I already have nearly all the contents of the Necron box, not interested, but I'd recommend it to someone interested in starting Necrons. And Reivers again? Waste of points, and more importantly, money.

All of that is contingent on price, and recent releases (like Warcry: Catacombs at US $210) have left me saying "no way."

I just want the Reivers, I think maybe I'll buy the battleforce, keep the Reivers, and try to sell the rest (but this does seem stupid and illogical, much like you wanting to buy it for just the Invictor and trying to sell the rest. Literally buying £150+ worth of discounted stuff, just because the bundle includes something worth £30 that you want).

I said invictor coz invictor is the one thats come up the least in all the boxes. I think hes been only in the vanguard space marine box?. Its really good/popular on table so people would want 2-3. Therefore I could see somebody trying to recoup costs for that one unit if they already havent got some a shes £37.50 solo.

Im thinking about this from a purely re-selling value / actual current value and not what GW online store says...

With a generous estimated £110 price tag(after FLG discoun) for the box in the currently saturated market I think you would struggle make a profit after P&P and ebay commission costs.

The Tzeentch is tempting, but I already have an LoC and a Gaunt Summoner (both versions, actually). All the extra stuff would be nice though.

Honestly, although not a X-Mas bundle, the new Blood Angel box is the best one of the lot. I just don't have much love for that Librarian. I'd convert Tiggy into a regular Primaris Libby, but of course, a Primaris Libby can't get a Force Staff because no model/no rule.

No, I'm actually thinking of getting the box for just the Reivers. Like I said, this makes no sense. I probably won't do it.

If you do actually want to flip stuff though, I don't think this box will be good for it due to the fact that everyone (except me) hates Reivers, and the SW/BA boxes have infiltrator/Invictor/Floaty rhino.

Yeah, I'm honestly surprised they bothered to do and SM box with all the combat patrols. They're just... better. Especially the BA box.
