As someone who wasn't around to see the other battleforces over previous Christmasses, is this the only 4 or are there likely to be more?

Yeah I held out on a lot of the new AdMech stuff because the prices were hard to justify for how often I got to use them. Would be great to see some of them in a battleforce box.

You're genuinely better off getting a few Start Collectings unless the battleforce goes dramatically off the rails for what they give.

Going off what they show for the Guard and Tau ones? I'm going to stick with that statement.

I almost exclusively army build through the holiday battleforces, start collecting boxes, and the 2-player battleboxes. Between the 25% discount I get at my FLGS and the built in discount on the bundle, I can get a lot of stuff for relatively low cost. Downside is theres some stuff that doesn't make its way into these bundle sets often, so I either need to sit and wait or eventually just bite the bullet on it.

The new Combat Patrol boxes have me intrigued though, the slightly higher pricepoint is a bit of a downer but they seem to be more willing to incorporate some of the harder to come by stuff into them based on the Space Wolves (Invictor Tactical War Suit or whatever its called) and Blood Angels (Impulsor) boxes.

alternatively a decent one for daemons.

I’ve been specifically adding stuff to my tryranid army so as not to buy anything I just need one off. So if they do a battleforce for them this year, there will be not duplication and I can use everything. A little miffed that I started after the last one was no longer available, as it would be perfect. Fingers crossed.

Marine ones are often hit or miss. If they go with a specific chapter, that’s a lot of lost value in the upgrade sprues for me. Plus as I already have a large collection, there is a lot of redundancy. This year I am working up a primaris battle company, so have some space on the shelf for more duplicates then before. Plus I’ve not been keeping up with all the new releases (even some of the older ones) so might need some of those. Will be interesting to see the contents.

My third main army is Eldar, but due to the lack of plastic in the range, even if they did one, I doubt I’d have a use for most of the things in it.

It will be very interesting to see what we get. None of the leaked ones appeal, but I like the concept of these, and past ones have been quite nice.

Always been tempted by Gitz. Love my Squigs and Gobbos. Trolls too. They’re such a gloriously daft army. Overall the Ossiarchs are ace looking, and super efficient, but I see no harm in having two armies for variety. Especially two so diametrically opposed examples of order and anarchy!

I'm betting that Ossiarch and Stormcast are the other two Age of Sigmar boxes, and then for 40k there will be a Sisters box along side the nigh-ubiquitous Space Marines box (probably two if the trend of the past two years holds up). So thats 4 AoS and 5 40k, not sure what the 6th 40k box (if there is one) would be. I think the potential options are Necrons, AdMech, Genestealer Cults, and Craftworlds, and I'll throw in Orks, Thousand Sons, and Death Guard as less likely wildcards for different reasons. Of these, I'm inclined to think Necrons or AdMech are the most likely - Necrons because its an easy sell to all the new 'cron players off of Indomitus, and AdMech because they have a bunch of new kits out and seem to be a fairly common choice for these kinds of boxes.

The question I have is whether or not they split the boxes 5 and 5 this year or add 1-2 more boxes for AoS and keep 40k at six.

There are 2 destruction boxes, Ossiarch would be Death, and Stormcast would be Order. Last year they did one box per Grand Alliance, though the year before they did 3 for Order, but I'm thinking they might want to have at least one box for each Grand Alliance so that would mean an additional AoS box over the usual 4 if they did. If there was an additional AoS box, I would guess that Slaves to Darkness, Hedonites of Slaanesh, and Disciples of Tzeentch are the most likely choices.

But we will find out soon! I am constantly refreshing warcom to see if they have posted an article on it.

You know thinking on it if they did an Ossiarch box I might be tempted - so long as it focuses on catapults, mortek guard, deathriders and such - I don't need another harvester but I'd accept it (its a cool model); but no more Morghasts please

Wouldn't be shocked if any other AoS boxes are a 'good start' for Warscroll Battalions.

My dream box would be 40 mortek guard, 10 deathriders, a crawler, and then throw in a boneshaper or soulreaper for good measure (or a leige-kavalos if they are feeling generous). Comes in within the same value range of the other boxes previewed for this year, so not completely out of the question.

BUT, realistically, if we do get an Ossiarch box, it'll probably be something like 20 mortek, 5 riders, 6 stalkers, and a gothizar plus whatever hero

If I was in the market for starting a new army, a couple of this Astra Millitarum, or Tau Boxes would be a pretty great start.

Not as big of a fan of the Gloomspite one, as there isn't a lot of synergy between those units, but they are all fantastic new kits.

There "isn't a lot of synergy" between a Dankhold Troggboss/Troggoth(same kit and options so can't tell exactly which one it's meant to be) and Rockgut Troggoths?

Between a Loonboss on Giant Cave Squig and Squig Hoppers?

That's an interesting perspective.

I think the point is more there isn't much synergy between the Troggoth grouping and the Squig grouping - or more specifically that if you're building a Squigalanche type list the Trogs aren't very useful to you, and if you're building a Trogmob the Squigs aren't very useful to you. BUT, thats really only true if you are building one or the other, as opposed to just a more generalized gloomspite force.

No sisters? (although I guess they may still show as there are no marines either and they're bound to get at least one),

not that I should be getting them as i'll need the new Deathguard stuff however much or little that is

Sisters are more likely to get a Combat Patrol box built around the LE box they did at this point than anything else.

The CSM box looks really good.

The tyranid one... I'm pretty sure no player has ever just purchased a box of gargoyles, because they have been in every box set for the last 10 years.

I'm bummed about no Sisters, but I guess it saves me some money. I'll probably spring for a pair of the Space Marine Interdiction boxes though.

The Necron box is nice too, as is the Chaos box.

Not feeling most of these.

Liked last years boxes better, especially for the factions that also got a box last year.

The CSM box particularly irks me in this regard. Its solid basics... except the daemon engine. Would have bought it if it and mallet-boy were replaced by something more functional.

And the tyranid one... ugh. Spamming the same old stuff.

The marine one makes me laugh, simply because I'd rather have the BA combat patrol. Or the DW combat patrol.
Bloody reivers.
