The cards in front of the 'encounter' pack look like 'infection' and something 'level', which may be interesting, plus I would like to see how dangerous the grenade flail is. Let's just wait and see next week before we turn this aside. And yes, I would rather see something not chaos, like some inquisitor going after you or something...

Everyone wanting the Plague Brothers- They need glue, the E2B marines...well...don't. I really can't make it more obvious than that.

What a low-effort release! Should have been a White Dwarf add-on, given how many of these minis people already own via starter sets and Conquest...

This is disappointing, the point of the Black Legion marines was that they were meant to be terrifying to meet. Now there’s 3 Plague Marines knocking about? BSF just builds you up then knocks you down hard.

Am I expected to pay £30+ for models I have half a dozen times just to get some new cards?

Kinda shame that they did not give us more xenos, or traitor guard instead. Nope they just had to give us these models, and i'd assume at a steep upcharge

Maybe they should consider packing some of their 30-35$ characters into this as explorer, and sell it for a slightly cheaper price than the total value. Game is already too simplistic and boring, different flavor of badie won't really help.

Would be an amazing plot twist if the Nurgle boyz were Explorers and the poxwalkers a retinue character (that happens to be multiple models like rein and raus) you could “hire” but that ain’t happening.

When they repacked a lot of the clampack characters for kill team most of them ended up far more expensive than originally.

Euro price is equal to the Traitor Command box.

Traitor Command is AUD$105 (WTF?) for 2 miniatures plus the rules.

Those Death Guard minis are, combined AUD$50. So an extra $55 for rules/cards.

Ouch...

If this really is a £37.50 box then it's probably the worst value box they've ever released.

You can get First Strike for £25 and you get 6 Primaris Marines in there as well.

Woof.....had this expansion been just the price of the two ETB kits combined and had some rules for the minis I could see picking up a kit for people to add some variety to their game, but at double that? Good luck moving this one GW.....these BSF expansions are just outrageously priced, but at least the other ones include new miniatures.

But I genuinely don’t get it.

Expansion, so optional. People find it poor value.

What do we with things poor value?

Not buy them. I’m BSF daft, and have everything but the annual (I keep forgetting to buy it, but I will). This ‘un? Got the models already, so don’t fancy paying so much just for the card bits and additional rules. So I’m just.....not gonna buy it.

I’ll have that Zoat though. Oh yes, you’ll see.

Look like you answer your own question with your reason of not buying.


Maybe they should.......make new kit so people actually wanna buy it. Or at least have the price of the box not double the plastic value, or throw some cheap character kit in there as explorer., or using the "death guard reinforcement" kit instead....

That we’re agreed on. I just don’t get why it’s such a hot topic of conversation.

If perhaps this had a single exclusive, really nice sculpt? I’d get it.

But it doesn’t. Just a bunch of peeps harping on about ‘do not want’.

You`re making too much sence. You should stop that and start whining, you`re on the warhammer forums after all.

This set is no bueno, so vote with your wallet. People seem to confuse deluxe goods with mandatory taxes.
I just hope they make a fantasy version of Blackstone fortress one day... Again. The previous iteration is dead, probably partly because no new minis were introduced in the follow up to the Silver Tower. Lets hope the same thing doesn`t happen to BFortress

Maybe, just maybe, people are confusing low content boardgame expansions with low content wargame expansions. Probably because that's what they are.

And GW seems to be confusing low content boardgame expansions with deluxe goods.

Even if it`s a boardgame and not a wargame (thus DLCs have more content for an overall game in proportion), it is still optional. so I`m not sure in what you were going for with the first sentence.
I`m, pretty sure you know, what I meant, but just in case -It`s a box of extra things for a boardgame with miniatures, so in no way this is mandatory for people to obtain (even lower on the food chain of necessities than extra clothes, 5$ coffee in the morning, ect) , that`s why I categorized it as a deluxe good.

Nothing is, by definition, mandatory. You might decide not to buy the core game as that isn't mandatory either. As that doesn't add anything to the discussion I'm just obviating it.

Something doesn't need to be mandatory for people to think it's overprized, bad or missing the point of what it is. People don't need stuff to be mandatory to be allowed to criticize it, either.

This is kind of the thing you do in a discussion forum. You discuss, you give your opinion.

Who knows where those wonderful Plague Marine models could turn up eventually.

Most of the series one models have ended up split across different board games.

I do think this set could have been an opportunity for GW to release the Death Guard reinforcements trio in a different manner.
