Yeah, the 180-190 price tag on the Tzeentch might have gotten me.


With a retail value of $312 USD and containing a model that retails for $140 alone, there's absolutely no way the Tzeentch one was going to be below $200.

Disagree. There's a decent chance you're looking at a 40% saving with these boxes (from what I've seen from speculation elsewhere). If your $312 calculation is correct, there's every possibility this will be $190.

They should have remade the zone mortalis hive warzone for $185... that sold out instantly and was a great terrain boxset

It would have been a good set for 40K killteam or necromunda too
Plus remade the floor tiles which have sold out forever

Terrain wise I'm still wishing for a return of Firestorm Redoubt and Aquila Strongpoints, etc. so I can round out my wall of martyrs collection, but I suppose I could do with a couple more large sets of ZM terrain.

Pretty optimistic expecting GW to make deals BETTER than last year. Looking at last year it was more like 28-33% discount. Wouldn't be expecting 40% discount. With GW odds are good discount % will rather go down than up.

GW can be very hard to predict at times. Many consider the price on the new Warcry Catacombs - a boxed set GW expects to last long term - too much. Yet at the same time the new Bloodbowl for two full teams and everything is only £85 which is much less than most were expecting for; again; another long term box.

We got the same with Ossiarchs - a very fairly priced army; and Lumineth - a rather high priced army.
Which is doubly odd when you consider that Ossiarchs are very elite and small in number and Lumineth are middle ground (lots more troops).



It's almost as if GW has two full teams - one aiming for sane balanced armies internally and between armies; and fair prices. Then another that's just the opposite.

You're deluding yourself if you honest expect these to be 40% off. 25-30% is the best they've done for these holiday deals in the past.

So there are terrain bundles after all.

Forge World Battlefield:


Chaos Invasion Battlefield:


Festering Factorum Battlefield:


T'au Empire Tidewall Battlefield


Cargoport Battlefield:


And they're not your typical GW bundle where you get everything inside for the same price as buying them separately. They appear to be 10%-15% discounts.

I'd actually get the cargoport one, except it's sold out.

Ah, but they're "heres a bunch of individual kits" bundles as opposed to the "we stuffed a box full of sprues" bundles. The discount is surprising, but meh.

A distinction without a difference. They're discounted bundles. From GW. That's amazing in and of itself, even if you can go to a 20% discounter and still get everything cheaper.

There is a difference - The ones that come repackaged into a bespoke box I can buy at 25% off at my FLGS using an employee discount for additional savings. These do nothing for me.

The Chaos Invasion one is a bit odd, with the SoB terrain kit in there.

And if you're playing on a sensible board size, I imagine it is still cheaper to buy the terrain kits alone, as those boards will be padding the price of the set somewhat.

I guess this is an invasion of a Shrine World, and some desecration has taken place.

Does GW only sell a single board now? I notice they all have the same one.

They've never sold another of that style separately before. They've always been inside Killteam Killzones or things like Warcry.

So right now that's all they sell. I'd imagine there will be other surface types in the future.

Same prices if memory serves.

Gloomspite has around £180ish worth of gubbins, so a decent saving, even from GW Direct. But if I can get it further discounted, I of course will.

Well atleast you do get some savings out of those battleforces.

Althought what caught my eye was that Gladiator costing more then basic Repulsor but that is on separate topic.

IIRC they were £100 / €130 for many years.

Looks like 34% for that box this year (in £), but GWrp still pushes it significantly beyond $200 anyway.

Last year prices were not identical for every box at least. (at least not in dollars that i were able to find when i checked discount %)

Ogre one bit cheaper than i expected. Good.

I really like how new tank is more expensive than Land Raider or Repulsor. Especially when you can just grab Baal predator and convert it slightly for half the price...

So £17.50 for 5, plus £9 for the upgrade frame, which would give... £26.50?

GW, we need to talk about your ability to perform basic calculations...

Same applies to the Hounds - and given Ragnar-is is priced at £26.50 on GW.com, we know that's a possible price point!
