Doesnt the new PM box still sells 7?
For the same price that other armies get 10 models as well. What a bargain!



Yeah pretty bad! Im still hoping its not 5 or 10 only I mean the fact that the box has 7 would mean that, for you to get say 3 units of 5man, you would need to buy 3 boxes ending up with 21... rather than 30 man on other factions... nuts.

Prices in case it wasn't posted here.

$50 for the miasmic? I'm guessing they mean chosen of Mortarion?
Pox walkers are 36-40, kinda hard to tell, but the Canadian price is more legible

For what it's worth I'm quietly confident they'll keep the 4++.

I feel like GW have made the design decision to eradicate 3++ except for rare cases. The abundance of storm shields for loyalists meant they had to cap relic terminator armour at 5++.

If Blightlords and Deathshroud end up stack at 2+/5++ considering how durable they are meant to be it'll not sit right when you have so many loyalist marine units running around with 1+ 4++.

The DWK comparison is a good one and if anything supports my stance.
DWK are 3pts less that Deathshroud and have 3 wounds at T4 1+ 4++ but permanent transhuman. They also have 3 damage weapons and no -1 to hit so more resilient and more deadly for cheaper.

If our terminators keep their 4++ it puts them on a similar level to storm shield terminators, the T5 will mitigate some of the vulnerability to small arms that the 1+ loyalist armour save has.


Not that this discussion is really useful, since we will know shortly, but just for the sake of discussion, I disagree that they are less resilient and less deadly than a DWK.
T5 and -1 damage count for a lot on a terminator model, and the secondary attack mode puts them on par offensive wise. If they have a 4++, it would make them quite superior to a DWK.

How does someone make an excel page that blurry? Even if they're just snapping a pic of a sheet of paper, they'd have to work to make it that bad.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

That's like £25 for the ten poxwalkers! You can still get the issue of Conquest they came in on the hachette partworks website for £8 and you get an extra plague marine...

€25,- or £20,- for the Poxwalkers, which is a disappointing increase in price but sadly expected.

I still need to pick up a box or two to diversify my hordes of ETB models I've collected in the past, just not any time soon right now. :(

Not everywhere can get Conquest.

Price is also better than the Chainrasps were, which was $40 for the same ETB style kit.
Necron Warriors are $45, but they do actually include two different weapon options and Scarabs.

The Easy to Build ones are different to the Dark Imperium ones. The ETB ones were designed to supplement the DI ones.

Pretty much.

Kinda glad I got DI and Know no Fear twice as well as the cheap 9 pound poxwalkers. Won't have to shell for the price increase.

It's two recycled DI characters and an Aspiring Champion. Better value relative to other overpriced clampacks does not good value make. Very glad I already own all of these models

There've been quite a few articles outside of the normal preview window for the Death Guard, which may explain this week being a bit quieter.

Is it actually good value? Of course not, GW is vastly overpriced.
Is it good value relative to normal GW prices. I think it is a good relative value, yes.

Gaining an extra attack does not make up for the loss of hateful assault and DTTFE. That is the potential damage nerf. Combats are bloody and Thr vast majority don’t last beyond one round anyways. I’m convinced we lost DTTFE, but am hopeful that we keep hateful assault. Otherwise the Deathshroud took a damage nerf.

they aren't and factions that have looks closeish related units f.e. lords / chose / CSM. are better off learning greenstuff. if not outright searching for alternatives and 3rd parties

We don't know if Hateful Assault is gone to be fair. Someone said they still had Volleys so it would make little sense to lose that. However, with the base A2 they should've had to begin with and the extra AP-1 on their Knives I don't think it's fair to say they lost any damage. If anything they DID gain it, and more consistently to boot.

So almost £80 for 20 poxwalkers, 2 characters and a champion.
You used to get that lot, plus another 6 plague marines, a lord of contagion and a bloat drone plus about 800 points of primaris for that price...

Are you talking about the combat patrol box?

If so it's 30 pox walkers, 7 plaguemarines and 2 characters.
Whether you think it's value or not is fair, but at least don't forget almost half the models

GW, the company that is trying to make fomo greater than ever before. This feels like them wanting to punish you for not having started an army at the right time in the past to milk the young blood.

Not a new thing for them but man it has to feel harsh for those players.

No i was talking about 2 boxes of poxwalkers and the chosen of mortarion box.

At least at GWs current pricing for the individual boxes the Combat Patrol is a significant saving as you are getting about £140 worth of stuff in there.

I´d say the box isn't even good at milking players really. As I said before it's only good if you plan on running a lot of poxwalkers and even then you'd probably want 2 boxes to get enough of them. But there is also Typhus which makes the idea of buying 2 seem like wasting money. I really have no idea what they were thinking here because a good starter for a DG army it is not.
Edit: on the chosen of Mortarion: I'm again a bit confused as to why this box needs to exist. The 2 characters are nice and not readily available otherwise, but a marine champion really? Just give me back Felthius and the easy2build PM's, at least those had value for beginners and people wanting to expand their DG further.
