Wouldn't you also get that X% discount on the individual components of the set? That doesn't make it any better of a deal.


If it was direct only, the store discount wouldn't be part of the equation. This is available through retailers.

Still hate them for making me invest more money than intended -.-

I'm trying to spend less per month on this hobby, but GW just keeps coming out with these badass deals! I'm going to really have to think about this one before I throw down $200+ after tax. At least this doesn't seem to be a limited-time offer.

Because Math

If A is 10 bucks, B is 20 bucks, and C is 30 Bucks, your retailer buys them for 60 bucks minus discount.

If all 3 are 40 bucks from GW, your retailer buys them for 40 bucks minus discount.

A store currently pays GW the same amount for the Warden and the Sanctum that they will for this new box. Cheaper prices from GW on sets means that with an equal discount from your store, the set will be a better deal than the components.

However you look at it, this box is a free knight.

Maybe you aren't as familiar with "math" as you think. Or you likely just missed my point.

A is $50 retail. B is $50 retail. A box with both A and B in it comes out, and is only $80 retail. So person says "What a great deal, because my stores gives me 25% off so it's really only $60!"

They are calling it a great deal because the $60 is so much less than the $100 retail of buying both things separately. But they were never going to pay retail for those two things anyway, since their store would give them the same 25% discount on them. So they should be comparing $60 price of the box set with the $75 price of buying the two things separately. That's what they would actually have paid.

Or the other obvious comparison is to compare the $100 retail of both separately, with the $80 retail of the box. But comparing the discount price of one with the retail of the other to convince yourself it's a great deal makes no sense.

Seperately, these kits are $160(Knight Warden)+$140(Knight Errant)+$33(terrain)=$333. A 20% discount on that is ~$266. The bundle is $195. 20% of which is ~$156. So comparing $266 to $156 you save $110. Is that the comparison you would prefer people make?

Either is fine but comparing 333 to 156 is daft.

Thanks for your response! Still on the fence exactly which ones to build, guess it depends on the rules included, else I will just go CtA for CSm.

No. There's only one Gatling Cannon. You could do a Paladin or Errant instead of the Crusader though. Or you could do a Crusader and Gallant.
Also, I like the appearance of the Gauntlet, but hate its rules. Do you think I would encounter friction if I said it had the chainsword, even though it had the Gauntlet? Especially given that the other knight wouldn't have a CCW?

I wouldn't just straight up take the Gauntlet and proxy it, just because that's kinda weird.

If you attempted to convert a 'chainfist' though...different story.


I converted the chainsaw into a giant chainsword using various bits, then had the gauntlet holding it. This goes on the leader of my knights army as a master crafted weapon.

I'd maybe buy a cheap Knight just to paint/display, but I've got no need for 2 of them. This might land me one from the box splitters though.


Totally with you; Adeptus Titanicus was one of my favorite aspects of the hobby back in the day.
I know the rumors swirl of bringing back Epic in some regard, but I would love to see a re-boot and re-scale.
Not quite to this size though. Yes, it's a great deal for sure, but...
