So that's £37.50 RRP for No Respite - in line with Traitor Command, £2.50 higher than The Dreaded Ambull, but substantially lower than Escalation (as you'd expect - though, unexpectedly, Escalation wasn't showing in the BSF section of the GW webstore...).

Both the ETB Poxwalkers and Plague Marines are marketed as £10 sets by GW, though has been pointed out they've been available in a variety of sets at better value points.

Given the end price point, what do you think of the set?

(And as far as I know, Malal was never removed from canon, it's just not been written about directly for a while - who do you think inspired the Sons of Malice?)

But just think of the savings in time as this is a one click buy .

A new level of crazy it seems. The oddest part is Warcry is doing the opposite- the Gloomspite and etc boxes add cards but are slightly cheaper than buying the models separately.
Which just makes the pricing on this seem more nuts and inconsistent.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

With their rabid and rather captive audience, I genuinely believe various departments and sculptors are just taking bets and gambling on how high they can price something and people buy it --- then the winners swap cash at the Christmas party.

I'm usually pretty prce immune but even with a 25% preorder discount I'm leaving this expansion, especially after the titanicus release.

At most this should have been RRP £25.

With new models, or the plague brethren, or double the number of models, fair enough. But 9 models that could be had as part of Conquest for £12 ? Nopes.

Honestly probably quite close to the money. Seeing how much they can charge for lowest-possible-effort filler products and still see whales buying.

It does fell like they’re probing the market at the moment to see what they can get away with. The out of the blue price point of Blood of the Phoenix was one. Then they’ve sold us a traitor commissar and friend for £37.50 and now they’re seeing if they can do it with existing models at the same price.

How are they figuring pricing stuff like this versus the Cultists of the Abyss box. Hell, I actually did a doubletake when I saw that was only $25US. I know there is card stuff in this expansion, but it's cardboard and ink, not gold leaf.

While not defending the price I do have to point out the cardstock actually costs more than the plastic in the set.

Still insane price though.

Garro has WD, and is reporting rules for an Assassin in BSF, as a player character.

Downside? It's a one man or one woman show. One Assassin against the horror.




Automatically Appended Next Post:
His pics include the rules for the Eversor, but it's not currently clear if the other Assassins are options too?

Though given this is the first to use existing sculpts, it’s relatively low risk for them. It’s not as if they’ve sunk tooling investment only to see it potentially not be returned with profit.


Thinking about it, maybe the whole point of this release is to see how many people are into BSF to actually play BSF, and how many are just buying the stuff for the cool models.

Yeah, much like the Solitaire it’s just him vs. all comers. The bonus action mechanic is neat; every time he kills he gets a free 1+ dice. Plus he suffers no penalties for going on overwatch.
