Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Looks like it's €200 for €130 on Death Guard and €210 for €130 for Idoneth. Massive savings on paper, but man, are those some pricy models.

Idoneth's a bit of a weird army with regards to structuring.

With this boxed set, you get two Battleline units(Reavers and Thralls)--if you add an Akhelian King, it remains at two(Reavers are "Battleline If" with Isharan[Tidecaster has this keyword]) as the Akhelian Eel Riders get Battleline with a King as General.

$90 of that box is tied up in the two sharks. The Eels are a lot bigger than most people think(they take up the same base that the Gryph-Chargers, Dracoths, and Varanguard feature) but $50 for them felt a bit much--as did $50 for 10 Thralls or Reavers.

Interesting to see the deepkin, i keep hoping for a start collecting box for them... which is not this, but it's still nice to see.

With the Kharadron Overlords and Stormcast Vanguard Chamber, we saw a Battleforce before a Start Collecting set--I think this is going to be the manner to expect the Deepkin to go.

I'd expect the Deepkin SC to be something like:
-Akhelian King($40USD)
-Akhelian Eel Riders($50USD)
-Namarti Thralls OR Reavers(guessing Reavers, Thralls were big sellers)


Additionally, I wouldn't be surprised to see a GSC box. Tau got two different ones within two years. We could see a box with the Aberrants and Abominants.

I'm thinking that it might be the case, certainly. Wouldn't be surprised to see a Start Collecting set for them next year too.

It seems to have some, yes. I'm thinking they have a kind of "Industrial Ruins" sprue they're planning on putting out ala the Sector Imperialis Ruins.

You're better off playing the "wait and see" game. Insurrection Force was recently pulled from the GW webstore(they finally sold through it, I think).

The Manufactrorum has some broken pipe and tank pieces that are new, and the Plasma Nexus and Munitions Hub have floor pieces that are repurposed from the Skyshield Landing Pad (not the same parts, but the same digital assets). Those last pieces were "previewed" months ago, on the Killzone: Sector Munitorum Environment Expansion for Kill Team.

That is actually something I hadn't considered--I wonder if those boxes will include the card bits?

I don't think those are real pieces they'll be selling. I think they're just to give them something that isn't the city or the regular RoB board for a base.

This was "leaked" a while back - not sure how accurate it still is but judging from today's images released it seems pretty accurate (including the names)

Plasma Nexus
- 5 Plasma Conduits (boxes)
- 1 Ferratonic Furnace
- 1 Haemotrope Generator

- 48 Crates
- 2 Galvanic Servohaulers (boxes)

Both for 125 Queen Pounds / $206 Freedom Bucks / $350 Dingo Dollars

5 boxes? That's 30 pipes (plus corners, generators, extra bits and so on).

That seems quite unrealistic. And is it one Haemotrope reactor box, or just one reactor, which is half the box? Pic only shows one.

Well it wouldn't be 5 pipes on their own.

For $350 it's not out of the realms of impossible. Probably somewhere in the middle is more realistic I agree. These bundle boxes usually have a 15%-20% discount applied (so one box out of the lot is free)

That article was posted months ago with no new information surfacing on it until now so until further confirmations are released - who knows!

I hope that price is wrong for the Munitorum Munitions Hub because that's an extra $70 over two Killzones, I was going to get a couple if it was $280-$300 even though I don't need that many cranes

One of the new battleforces would have to be exactly Thousand Sons for me to be interested right now (can't be tempted by GSC, can't be tempted by GSC, yes I know they look cool and have interesting rules but I can't be tempted by GSC...) though the chances of that are fairly low if they're already doing a Death Guard one.

The Manufactorum pieces makes me wonder if they'd ever do Hab slums or something along those lines. Hab blocks were always the missing segment from the old Cities of Death stuff- that had cathedrals, fancy admin and government buildings, and industrial buildings. These have now been mostly recreated in Sector kits.

The closest we have at present are the Ryza ruins.

No, they're definitely different. Notice the rectangular windows in the walls, and lack of gothic arches.

For comparison, this is the wall sprue of the Sector Imperialis:

Yes. I've been wondering what happened to them, they were previewed ages ago.
