Well, warbands usually retail for $60, and the mawpot (which this explicitly counts as) is a $50 terrain piece. So $170 seems to be the upper bound, but GW loves doing two things: having web only "bundles" with zero discount ever, and putting highly desirable new kits in combination boxes with decent discounts, even when they would sell out instantly (see Ashes of Faith, the OG warcry starter, the Lion, etc,)

Alas, the biggest counterexample to this trend is the new warcry starter. ($84 in warbands, plus 1 sprue of terrain somehow spit out $110 when I would have guess $99 at very, very most)

I'd guess somewhere between $130-$140 for this box, but I'm resigned to pay up to $150 for it.

I really like them. They look more "grim" than the other Fyreslayers. And at last we see some real duardin women !

I guess they will be released in a box with the orruk warband. They are both beast hunters, but one to tame them and the other to kill. Clear opposite.

The end of the video shows a solo box.

All Warcry warbands end up with a solo box, doesn't mean they can't get released in a duo box before.

But yeah, wait and see.

That's weird...
I don't know if they are gonna be in a vs or a solo box but that's the last Order warband that was missing for Autumn based on the roadmap.
So now we are waiting for 1 Order, 1 Death and 2 other warbands that we don't know what they are.

I bring it up because the Kruleboyz(previewed in July) did not have that, the Hunter and Hunted reveal at NOVA didn't have that(and was actually listed as an AoS reveal in the GW index?), nor did the Wildercorps reveal article on July 24th(again, was listed as an AoS article--complete with the background being AoS).

Might be there was a plan to do Kruleboyz v Fyreslayers and now they're just doing those two solo.

It is odd, but I’d think maybe an error and they are coming together.

“Even with their hardened armour and fyresteel weapons, they’ll have their work cut out for them trying to cultivate Kyndledroths and prevent their eggs from being poached. Stick with Warhammer Community for news on when you can pick up these taciturn Beasthunters”

This has a clickable link on Eggs from being Poached that goes to the Orruks. In the same paragraph about the when to pick up etc.
So maybe..

These are definitely the best Fyreslayers they've done. Which isn't really saying a lot to be fair. They're fine.

This is probably a stupid question, but if you miss/skip a FOMO box, and then later buy a standalone warband, where do you get their quests/narrative missions, etc?

I know Kill-Team does Compendium releases, but for example, I just bought the Ascetic Vampire guys, and have no idea where the bulk of their rules live.

4980pts Total (4980pts painted)

Interestingly, this is the first warband released outside a FOMO box in a couple years, IIRC.

Those are very nice- big step up in design, really like the female dwarfs and the mini magmadroth.

Warcry firmly following Underworlds into the era of the good boy this year How many recent warbands with pets is that now?

The Slayers do look great though. Really dynamic poses and a lot of character. I'm convinced a lot of the existing lines problems are due to the designers thinking square bases and ranks were still going to be a thing.

Predator and Prey book but it doesn't look like they've released them separately yet. Try Ebay, the Warcry FOMO boxes rarely sell well so finding cheap splits is probably easy.

The Vulkyn Flymsykyrs are some of the best Fyrslyrs I've seen GW make.

If only their AoS range had this much depth.

Anecdotal evidence? They sell out fast here and nearby cities stores etc.

Nightmare Quest took several weeks to sell out on the GW site. Element Games still has it in stock. Recent Kill Team boxes have sold out in minutes (seconds in some cases). Recent Warcry boxes have sold out in days, weeks or even months.

White Dwarf 491 had some content from Might and Madness (The lastest box with stormcast vs FEC) but I'm not sure what exactly and I don't know if they have released the previous books as well like that.

There was definitely a moment where you could get Sundered Fate and Bloodhunt for well under retail on Amazon. Bloodhunt is still there for $115, which is, what, 38% off?

Red Harvest is also still available on Amazon for $125, which while the rules and gaming materials are out of edition, the terrain and warbands are still good. Pretty sure that was a $200 box when released.

Good looking out, I missed Bloodhunt and Nightmare Quest, been looking for deals on them.

Also Gallowfall or whatever the space dwarf kill team box was.

They sell a rulebook every couple of months. Other then that, you can get them piecemeal by Fee bay or your FLGS



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

That's neat, I like the pylon a lot. So they're splitting down from the big ass boxes to smaller and separate kits. Cool, I appreciate that.

It will probably be more expensive to buy the vs box and the terrain box instead of a big box from the previous season, but they are not forcing us to buy more terrain if we don't want to, so that's good.
