Please buy our skinny marines guys. You really should love the skinny marine aesthetic, and we're giving you 40% off gwrp because they're just that good. Not-Dreadnoughts are also super cool.

Sisters technically only released this year, so they're probably going to be in a 2021 box.

Echoing the guess for Ossiarchs and Sigmarines for AoS. Maybe Nurgle if they do a Chaos box.

I really like the Vanguard Marines, if I didn't already have a heap of marines, I'd certainly start with two of those boxes, But I started my Primaris force, with two Shadowspear boxes, so I'm pretty well set!

I also like the Chaos Marines, Tau and Millitarum boxes as good "Buy two to start an army" boxes.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Age of Sigmar boxes.

I'm hoping Age of Sigmar box article goes up in 15 minutes, but they might spread the articles out over a couple more days :/

The marine one is a hard pass for me. I could see some people getting some use from it. The warsuit is good, the impulsor seems useful to have. While a little pricy points-wise, I’ve been enjoying my infiltrators (but don’t know how often I’d want more then 5 in a list). Phobos captain is not horrible. Reivers are not good; I think a squad of 5 in crusade lists can offer some fun tricks, but overall still grabage. From my POV, I already own plenty of phobos armor, and dislike the look of the walker. So the only things I need are the captain and the impusor.

As a newer Nid player, I’m going to pick up that box. I’ve been holding off buying a tyrant, guessing (correctly) there would be one in this box. The Haurspex is a duel kit with the Exocrine, which last I checked were good (and on my to-buy list anyway for some backfield fire support) I hear good things about the hiveguard. It’s not a nid bundle without some stealers, so I can add these to the pile from the SC box I got (and older ones from the depths of time). Gargoyles are flappy and irritating, should be good for clogging up the battlefield. I have a handful of old metal ones, so these would let me get a respectably sized flock out there.

$150 would also be just $10 more than the Combat Patrol boxes they're starting to make a range item...so yeah, not likely to happen.
The Marine one is already $291 in contents. I'm not crunching the numbers on the rest today.

Even at $170? You're saving something like $121, if those were items you wanted anyways.
To reiterate: you save about $20 less than the cost of a Combat Patrol box if they use the $170 pricepoint.

The Necron one is excellent as a starter set or to flesh out a small force. The Immortals and Praetorians are both multi kits too so can be made as Deathmarks or Lychguard.

Are the chaos terminators old mini-termies, or are they just downscaled on the image? Their terminators have been upscaled recently, right?

Yeah but I'll forgive GW for that. I mean, the whole box is likely to not much more than a LoC does.

They're the new ones, with the bad selection of cc weapons, picket fences and all. This box also proves, once again, that when gw thinks "Chaos Space Marines" they're really thinking "Black Legion".

The video yesterday showed 15, broken up into 2 units of Hoppers and 1 of Bounders. Might just be a photoshop snafu.
I take it back. There were 14 there. I have no idea how.


There's 4 Hoppers to the left of the Loonboss, 5 to the right, then 5 Bounders above.

GW messing up the photography is nothing new. There are 15 in the box even if the art only shows 14.

There's 10 Reivers.

The Gobbo set is listed as 22 models, which means something is off.

Honestly, my concern is just around it saying 22 models on the box rather than the photography itself.

Gitz one is fethed up. Should say 23 models with 15 of them being Hoppers/Bounders. There’s no way they can only provide 14 with the way the sprues are laid out, and in-game they are taken in multiples of 5.

Only giving us 14 squidriders would mean that they literally made a new set of sprues for them, because there is no physical way to only give us 14 minis with the current sprues which come in groups of 5.
