Imagine if they ever make a Battleforce, let alone Combat Patrol, for IK/SoB.

That being said, I am rooting for a Renegade-like box for AoS with Mega-Gargants.

I like the meems, but I wouldn't be lying if I didn't say that I like to see my army getting discouted with that many battlesuits.

There was an Apocalypse box a few years back, which was basically getting the Armigers free

Hope not, have 30 horses already courtesy of the mini bundles they released earlier this year.

They already had one as part of the Mortal Realms books - 2 units of Deathriders and a Kavalos kit which was basically free in the set. Always meant to pick one up and never got around to it. That could certainly form half of a battleforce for Ossiarchs.

I'd love to see an AT terrain box. We haven't had a discounted set for that since the game first came out, and a couple of other plastic terrain kits have been added to the range since.


That would be nice, if nothing else for the game.


I would also like this, but I'd rather have ZM tho...

Of terrain, it would be great if the imperial sector with the big 3 panel wall returned.

It would also be a very sensible follow up to reissuing that theme in Kill Team Chalnath.

Which means they won't do it

It'd be great if the Sector Imperialis terrain would just return. Period. A single bit of SoB terrain and some frames in a limited edition Kill Team box isn't enough.

I hope Thursday's battleforces are as "good value" as these "narratively themed armies".

If it doesn't include a spiffy box, it's never discounted.

What's even the point?

Trying to catch a gullible idiot thinking; "Since it's a bundle, they're clearly discounting! And avalible for a limited time, i must hurry!"

...thinking about it, yeah, that probably IS the point.

I somehow can see GW use the Battleforce as an excuse to bring back the many MANY recent "made for starter box" sprues they have made trough the years.

Death Guard from Dark Imperium in particular would be nice to finally be able to get our hands on the Lord of Contagion, and I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled an Indomitus half or two, and maybe even a Shadow spears.

It may also serve as a sort of step up from combat patrol for gift shopping purposes or something. Something to help people shop for loved ones that put warhammer on their Xmas list I would assume. Or birthday list. Whatever. I certainly agree that these are dumb.

Other peoples loved ones apparently love them a lot more than mine love me if that bundle is necessary!

Would be cool to see a big box of Battle Sisters. Probably the only way GW gets me to bite at the moment.

A really value-rich Adeptus Titanicus box would break me, and probably be the last straw for my ability to resist the game.

I imagine I would be incredibly tempted by an Ossiarch or Hedonites box.

Based on my current finances I can guarantee that at least one or both will happen and they will be glorious temptations

Sisters of Battle will also get one

Tyranids will also get one which will heavily feature elite class models, no gaunts or carnifexs (cause they always appear in them)

Last nid box had neither gaunts or fexes. Which is a shame, as I wanted both. But since I’ve since bought them separate, there is a good chance for them this year.

Betting that you are wrong with Tyranids, assuming we don't have the last year ones.

Oh I'm fairly sure I will be - but if they put zoanthropes, hive guard etc... all in a big bundle that would be a really big temptation for me. Tyranids will be either a swarm or an apco style monster collection like they've generally had before - if they get one of course.

Both equally painful to store or carry.
