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…


I’d agree with you. The box is even more disappointing when you have a look at the combat patrol box. I think of a wurrboy or had the squigasaur in I would have been a lot happier.

Has anyone had problems redeeming their code on the app? I’ve tried multiple times and it just won’t recognise the code.

Someone on the ork thread said that the app won't update until the official release - until then the code is not redeemable.

GW really blew it out of the water with this release.

That can't be true though, we've seen virtually the whole codex via screenshots taken from the app.

Unintended leak by GW.

Just because GW unintentionally put them out doesn't mean they KEEP it out. If they put the switch to "off" again then off it stays.

Yes we have. It’s been leaked from either a page in the codex or white dwarf.

They could have quickly patched the app for the leak, but I find it hard to believe they'll not let people use it at all for up to 2-3 months when they already formatted & uploaded everything in time for this month.

Probably just waiting for someone to come into the office today and remove the patch.

Regards the app, they likely don't have anything in place to have 2 simultaneous ork rulesets on the app. So either you redeem the code and get access and current subscribers using the 8th edition lose access to what are (for them) contemporary rules. Or you don't apply the changes yet and leave the 8th rules and access in place acknowledging more people will need those.

Might also be worth holding off expending your code until we know precisely what they’re doing with the App come the dawn of Warhammer+?

Fun thing with combat patrol is that if you swapped Deff Dread with Nobs you would have almost exactly the same set up from AoBR.

Hi There!

There were a few grots in the system with the codes this weekend. The servitors over in the app team however are working on clearing them out now however, and you code will be redeemable from tomorrow (Tuesday)

Please note however that while your code will redeem, the new data will not show in the app untill the main launch later on in the year.

Happy hobbying and apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Ok, definitely getting one of those then. I wanted a couple of new-boyz boxes to spread around my existing mobs for variety, and I don’t actually have a plastic deff-dread so it’s all upside as far as I’m concerned. Better with FLGS discount on top of bundle box discount too.

NGL, that Combat Patrol box is a good enough deal that if it were on sale right now I'd be starting a new Ork army from scratch. Can buy 3 of them for under £200, and have a solid ~1500pt core with units that I like. Wouldn't necessarily be the most competitive list, but it would definitely be playable.

lol - sounds like they tried to upload the new codex then realised it would stop people from using the old one

With so much new stuff coming I hope they follow up with releases in waves soon (i.e. Aug / Sept / Oct ) rather than just one big release in say Orktober.

Finally received my Beast Snaggas box.

Anyone else notice the insert art (to separate the sprues from the books) shows Deathkorp of Krieg Rough Riders? Or that the art of the new Squig mounted SC shows Deathkorp again?

Seems IG might be in for a treat later in the year…

But Death Rider horses don't have hooves...

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Huh, curious. I wonder if they are trying to make Krieg the "default" guard faction to cash in on all of the DKoK memes. They do seem to be a popular regiment.

Who knows. Could just be “sell the new things as hard as we can”.

Certainly just as No Model No Rules is a thing, so is No Models No Art.

I’m not spotting anything else in the same art - but the Codex May throw something up.

Sod it. This needs to a thread of its own.

No Models No Art isn’t a hard and fast rule these days like it was at one point. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get plastic death riders, but the art doesn’t necessarily indicate it, and there are death rider models already (resin ones).

The resin range is haemorrhaging more and more sculpts; if there's not a range refresh soon, plastic Death Riders might become the only option

Sure, my point was more ‘no model no art’ doesn’t really apply anyway, as there currently is a model.

Are there even resin death riders anymore? The artwork could have been made a while ago or show OOP models, since I think the whole DKK FW line is gone

It it was on sale I'd have one too. I love the new Warboss mini (even if GW was boneheadedly stupid to not give it a Klaw option), 20 Boyz I can turn into slightly-bigger-Boyz (ie. Skarboyz) is a good thing, the Deffkoptas are nice, and Dreads are literally my fav unit type in 40k - any flavour, Marine, Chaos, Eldar, Ork, etc. - so another one of those is great.

GW wouldn't bother doing new art for a mini that is mostly unavailable. Them in art gives us a better than good chance that we'll see a plastic kit.

No mode/no art is a thing. Sadly.
