This is what I needed to hear thank you. I'd been confused/concerned from the lack of info on boxes from my lgs. I didn't think they'd arrive so late.

Many thanks to you dakkamites!

Make sure to be there *before* the store opens. Considering how many reports of people who failed to preorder one came from the US, you might not get one if you are a few minutes late.

Or call the store to hold one for you if they allow it. Otherwise, you won't be a Target door warmer waiting on a Hot Wheels drop.

Looks like thunderstorms down my way over the weekend.

Guess my plan is wait in for my delivery, grab the book and sod off down the pub to read the Codex.

Oh I already did that ages ago. I'm number 2 in the pre-order queue. So long as they get more than one I'll be fine.

Flipped through the new codex. No Tin ’Eads and Nauts being moved to Lord of War already kills the whole thing for me. Pretty gakky to kill off a fun kulture that was introduced a year ago when just about no one could play during that year…..

Here’s hoping CSM aren’t complete ass when they finally get their update.

Yeah... don't add to the misery some players will inevitably suffer from.

Trending around £200 on eBay.

My favorite scalper put his on at £349 a few days ago and some fool is ... well ...£999.00 ...just, Ugh!

Here most are trying to get ~200€ for their box, with a surprising number of people trying to ruin prices for just the codex+cards by offering both for 20€.

Got my Snagga box today. It goes without saying that it’s overpriced for what it is, but I love the Orks and decided not to fight the hype…

The codex is okay. It still feels like they are taking shortcuts with the model range; the Big Mek with KFF is in there, but the photo shows the mega-armoured version. There are still crappy resin models for the Weirdboy and Waaagh! Banner Nob (who has lost his power law again), as well as most of the characters - and of course the Tankbustas. The Warboss is still the version without all the options, although the new mega-armoured version is there (with no weapon options - just the uge choppa). None of this is a surprise, but it emphasises what a hotchpotch the Ork range is. Strangely, the codex doesn’t feature the new Boyz models either - I expected them to be included. So it’s a bit of a missed opportunity, which seems odd considering that codexes are ultimately intended to sell models. The highlight is probably Mozrog - the model looks great.

The new models are pretty good. The squig cavalry are obviously the highlight - they look like they will be fun to build and convert. The Snagga infantry are very nicely detailed, and the detail is more robust. The weapons are especially cool. It seems to be possible to do head swaps, but the heads themselves are on the small side and the detail is a bit soft - rather like most of the ‘new’ buggy krew figures. I may try to replace most of the heads. The Nob seems a bit puny, but I assume that’s because all Snaggas are beefier than normal Orks.

A few other changes I noticed:
- Deffkoptas lost big shootas as an option, which sucks as I’d converted my AoBR models
- Kommandos get loads of options (anticipating the Kill Team models)
- Tankbusta bombs have disappeared as options for the Boyz and Kommandos
- some of the warbuggy weapons have been improved, like Kustom Boosta-Blasta’s rivet kannon. Rukkatrukks have been simplified.

Given it's a discount box (by estimations a fairly hefty one at that), I don't know that overpriced reflects well on your expectations of the individual kit releases.

One for the FAQ: if I have a Mekboy Workshop, can I add a third copy of a Kustom Job to a unit if one of the other units that had that job before has since been destroyed?

Hopefully you dont buy any soloboxes then if this is overpriced with like 33% discount(assuming snaggas come 20 for bss squad which is optimistic and 0 for cards) then no discount boxes make zero sense to buy

Amount of discount over bying items separately is not the only way too see the value of a bundle. If Snord feels like he is paying too much for too little, that is enough a reason for him to feel like the set is overpriced regardless of what the contents would cost separately. 155 eur for 26 models and a codex is a lot to drop at once and doesn't feel like an excellent value. Multiple smaller purchases over a longer period time is easier to justify even if they end up costing more in the long run.

I am looking forward to get my set but once again my FLGS didn't get its new releases in time. I don't think it's terribly good value but Beast Snaggas look fun to paint and regardless of high price tag this looks a good way to start collecting them.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

If 155 for 26 is bad value subjectively then I don't think paying 210 for 26 over 4/5 months somehow makes it better value, you've just tricked yourself into feeling better via cost spreading.

Of course it's fine to say "the box isn't good enough value, the miniatures cost too much". That's perfectly valid, but it's dishonest to say that paying more over a longer time is better value, its just a more managed payment method.

That is why I never claimed that buying over longer period of time was better value. I said that it's sometimes easier to justify. And like you said, it may not feel as bad.

Of course paying less is better value than paying more. But buying over longer period of time may be easier to justify and it gives the option to not buy everything that is in the bundle. It is also entirely possible that individual boxes may feel like a decent value but when added up, they don't feel like that anymore, even with discount.

It is an old truth that discount boxes exist to make us spend more, not less. I tend to fall for this more often than I would like to admit.

I love the way Dudeface quoted the whole of my post and only responded to the part about the price (typical Dakka).

I don’t think it is particularly good value for money - it’s a few sprues and a codex. It may be discounted but it looks a bit meagre when you open the box. That wasn’t really the focus of my post…

My lazy editing on a mobile device really doesn't matter in the context of responding to your post. Appreciate the shout out though.

TBF, I balked at the cost of buying this box-set. Essentially 26 models and a codex for £125 seemed a bit too much for me, but that's probably because I'm not that interested in the beast snagga boyz models or the runtherd and together they're over half the cost of the box.
There's no way I'd shell out scalper prices for this.

A box being a bad value if you don’t want half the contents is not surprising. However, you did miss out on your chance of keeping half the box and being the scalper

There's still time for that, my local store has 3 unsold boxes up for £112.50 and a friend in my old game club is selling his copy for what he bought it for (£125) because he's just not that bothered.

Personally, scalping is not my bag. I'll leave them for a lucky fan to find.
