Right behind you.

I'm really interested to see them in action. There's definitely something there, but it looks like you'll have to synergize a lot more.

The abilities are tacticool but the slight defensive buffs just won't cut it against the raw power of some warbands IMHO, and of the 7 abilities you'll never have more than 4 on the table as most of them are on the horde of different Leaders. If they could only take the Stonemage and the High Sentinel together.

I completely disagree. I do not see them being fantastic, but a strong set of doubles coupled with a very strong basic infantry option means they just can't be bad. 3" melee range on those spearmen at 80 points is a steal. I play splintered fang; I know from experience how much one good double and one good basic unit can determine a faction's capability.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Warcry Catacombs - new starter announced. It will include a smaller set of the original terrain as well.

Wasn't expecting a starter using the Scions. Interesting way to get some of us to double dip... as if we needed much provocation anyways.

Maybe this'll give me the kick in the pants I need to actually paint my terrain...

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Very nice indeed. I only wish they went all in on the new terrain theme. The fire board is epic but it could do with more terrain than just 3d doors and some rubble. Bring it closer to the display table shown in the same theme.

Definitely double dipping on this the original starter was £100 2 warbands are £60 so all the rest is £40 to £60 as I think this new starter will push towards £120.

I also think the Scions weren't part of the original plan for this set but Covid pushed them out so far they've ended up in the new set. I'd say Catacombs was planned but changing 1 of the warbands was relatively straight forward so they did it.

The new Underworlds stuff will be a nice starting point for some warbands as well. Adding Morgok Krushas to Iornskull's boyz is a complete Warcry Warband.

Do you guys read the announcement as meaning that some of the original Warcry terrain comes in the new box? I've gotta say that the catacombs terrain board looks terrible especially for the price. Looks like a cheapo board game. I'd much rather have walls with doors I have to imagine than doors with walls I have to imagine.

According to the stream, yes. Some of the original terrain is in the new box, but less than in the old one to make room for the doors and bridges.

Did they announce the price then? I'm pretty sure we haven't seen it yet.

I'd expect it to be priced the same as the previous box. You basically get the same amount of content - two warbands, boards and terrain. The only difference is that now with the new mode the terrain is split into two kinds to suit the 2D and 3D game board options. So perhaps a little less 3D terrain in the box; but Warcry stuff has always been designed to be bolstered with terrain boxes anyway.

Interesting. It's like the Kill Team Arena box, but with added models.

I like the idea of a catacomb box set, could see myself picking up the board and terrain off ebay or something. But wait a minute, that terrain is freaking abysmal.... Especially compared to the previous box.

The obsession with "SkUlLs EvErYwHeRe" is reaching new all time highs (if that was even possible). Those archways, doors and bridges look genuinely dumb. Hats off to the designer.

Well it might work in your favour. Warcry Warbands from the first boxed set were sold secondhand new on the sprue on ebay for generally less than they went for retail. Even if they go for the same retail on ebay you'll still likely have a chance to pick them up. Heck the individual bands didn't take long to come out after that boxed set either. A few weeks if I recall right and they were out.

Both warbands will likely get separate releases a month or 2 after release just like the Untamed Beasts and Iron Golems.

Yeah, even with some of the additional decent terrain in the box I just hate all the catacomb stuff and would honestly be embarrassed to own it.
It looks like bad 80s kids toys.

I'll just pick up the Scions off eBay.

Extremely excited for the miniatures, the board, the missions, all of it. Very much looking forward to it and even if the written content isn't good (which I doubt--Bottle knows what he's doing) the models are still awesome.

I personally really like this boxed set. Both Warbands are pretty awesome, two modes of play with terrain for both (a bit skimpy on the above ground - but not too bad). I can use this to expand my original starter terrain, get a couple new warbands, and have a new game mode?

I can’t wait to pick it up.

Is that two repeated bodies or three?

I think that the picture is showing two alternative builds of the same model and the boxed set will have 9 models as opposed to ten in the pic.

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

Yeah, nine models in the warband according to the photo of the board. I thought top left and bottom right were alternate builds because the legs are the same bar a gem on the knee of the latter, but apparently not.

Not sure why they're showing off the alternate weapons of the not-Sister of Slaughter though, because the board photo seems to show all but the boss with alternate weapon load outs (lots of different blades, a few spears, dual crossbow guy can be armed with a dagger and magic missile, and the dagger and magic missile guy has his own dual crossbow option). Definitely a warband you'll want more than one box for.

That's probably right. Having assembled two Warcry warbands and read the directions for a third, that's how GW usually does it. Those Khainites do look good. Somewhat concerned about the price of the new starter though.

They show however much is in the boxed set for WarCry, from what I can recall.

The alternate builds usually just get those specific alternate parts shown off.
