This is a simple poll to follow up on the orignal, which asked 'will you buy this new box?' linked here:
https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/788607.page

In the end, I did not buy it. I had arranged for one at the local GW store to be delivered July 25th, but ended up letting that box go.
I love the models, the story is actually pretty good with the Necrons so far, from what I hear about it anyways.

For me, the box was an awesome deal and the models are great, but...
I was looking at the models that I have been collecting with a vision for the finished collection in my mind for 25 years, and thinking of how the #Newmarines, so much better than numarines imho, might fit into this story and actually help complete this collection.

I realized that - however cool they are - these models cannot help me to finish what I started.

They will force me to start something #New, and at my age, with other obligations, and with so much already GW related in progress (that I would like to finish, before I die hopefully peacefully and painlessly with a paintbrush in hand I suppose), #New just wasn't for me.

If GW had released #Newmarines instead of numarines, and 9th rules instead of 8th, then... they might have had me.

#Newrules seems like a bunch of steps in right directions - love the crusade mode of play on the smaller tables, that is really a good scale for hobby for most people.

It seems that GW strategy is market saturation and ubiquitous presence, from comix to lunchboxes to... I am waiting for the trademarked Imperial caskets (as well as the recasts!) with a big shield and a skeleton strapped to the top, skulls everywhere. But, I think that I will pass on those, too.

Just the marine half. I've been tempted to have a small space marine army next to my main "npc" armies, because the models look good.

I will put it on the shelf for few months to simmer, maybe wait for a Christmas bundle to expand the list, and then either pass it to someone else or commit to the army.

The rule books are going for anywhere between 30 to 35$ online right now, on made to order. Techincly GW is going to be selling the rule book cheaper, but I ain't going on a 2 day trip to Warsaw to maybe buy a rule book there.

Wow. Because those marine models (and the newbook, actually) are what had me interested.
The shield carrying dudes especially.
The bikers... meh. Was thinking I would get those to a kid who seems to have a reputation for losing easily, at the shop.

Still, for painting, theose new marines - even the assault marines - seem ideal.

I really wish that they would just call them assualt marines, though.
or even #newassaultmarines.
Fine.

Not nu #Newmarines... too bad.

That is a great strategy if you don't want to start another army too.

Still, those new crons are schweet imho.

Pretty much exactly what happened to me.
If the man would have taken the money when I initially offered, I would be the proud own (in waiting) of a #Newboxset.

I'll buy the models if they can be played competitively.
If not, I'll skip them.

Assuming the FLGS doesn’t mess anything up, I’m picking up 2 boxes, one for myself, one for The Boy. We both play marines (Ultras v. Salamanders) and just the marine half of the box is packed full of enough stuff to justify it.

Wondering if a double dose of the Necrons is enough to make a viable army out of, or it more key units would need to be added. If not, could build a KT out of it or attempt to find someone who wants to buy it.

I bought 2, split 1 and selling the 1/2+Book on the second one later (or trade).

Its just way to good not to get. Sure the 2k of Marines are going to be 3 characters I will never use, but kit bashing is a thing. I don't play marines, but having a marine army for basically $200 and the 2 other kits i need is insanely cheap, even if i just paint it and play them 5x in 9th they will always be useful for 10th, 11th, and so on.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

I bought it.

Well, I mean, technically I bought 6 boxes, but only one of them is mine. I was doing a group order for my friends.

And I've bought some extras as well (4 more Cryptothralls, 3 more Skorpekh Destroyers and the Plasmacyte, another Canoptek Reanimator and I should be getting an extra 3 Outrider). Combined with some Primaris stuff I got at the same time, this will be my first foray into Primaris Marines, and I'm using Crusade as a good outlet for that. And I already have a Necron army, so this will help.

I do hope that Outriders and Assault Intercessors get proper kits with actual weapon options for the Sergeants.

No the only use the box has for me is using the Primaris as a base for conversions but at the end of the day it seems wrong to spend time criticising Primaris as unfun, OP etc then start them without actually changing my views on them.

I like Necrons model wise but the way I'd play them is boring.

Like many others, I am usually blinded by alleged savings and end up spending more than I normally would. By backlog is roughly 300 years worth of miniatures so adding 61 to it does not make any difference whatsoever.

I am going to build and paint a few Necrons until the next big shiny box comes.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

No. Love the contents, but I'll never get to painting them, and I already have far too many unfinished armies as it is. It is a great box though, so I am excited for those who are getting it. I liked the judicar model enough to buy one of eBay though, so I suppose I have bought a tiny part of one.

I wasn't going to get one, but the prospect of doing a swap and having a nice collection of Necron models for a good price pushed me over. So in the end I'll have the rulebook and 60 odd Crons for 200$, which is nice. I'm still not sure if I'll start the army proper, I'm waiting to see how they shape up before I really delve in. I want to know about tge new Destroyers, Flayed Ones, and hopefully Pariahs.

No. I'm not dropping a dime to gw until they fix their balance issues. I have a necron army still. They were flaming hot garbage in 8th. They've been flaming hot garbage during other editions. I'm tired of factions being flamging hot garbage.

When they show me they can make all factions viable, I will be more open to spending money there again.

I got 2 boxes, one for myself and one for my girlfriend(one is made to order). I play Salamanders and she has been wanting to start Necrons for months. We would have already pulled the trigger on some Necron stuff if it wasn't for the leaks about upcoming Necron and 9th edition stuff that caused us to wait a bit.

Really glad I did though as honestly this box is such an amazing way to get someone into the hobby.

Yes.
I was always going to get the new rule book.....

As I play both Marines & Necrons I took a look at the models included, decided that I liked enough of them (Necron warriors = not bad, just meh, everything else ) & the price was right.
So I told my local shop to order me one.

Will I get it all painted anytime soon? Nope. But that's never been a concern before, so it isn't holding me back this time either.

Now if the group ends up running some sort of Crusade game? Then I might get those Necrons done up sooner rather than later.

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.
