It’s a game where the make their money on the add-ons, and has otherwise a fairly high starting price. So giving people a little bit of what they fancy to kick off with does make sense.

I mean, compared to Conquest, Imperium and the other starter sets it’s not the best savings.

Suffice to say, like a dirty little consumer Lady Of Negotiable Affection, if I dive in, I’m going to get spare weapons. That means Forgeworld, and a fairly hefty spend to get at least one of every option. Plus the remaining weapon sprues.

That’s possible because from the get go they’ve kinda encouraged magnetising so you can swap your load out. Hehehe. I said load.

So they take a slight hit here, and I get into it, then spend unending cash at later dates. And when people see it being played at the club, those people might be more willing to invest, because it looks great, plays great, and the start up price is pretty decent with that set.


Naturally theres the old loss-leader chestnut at play here but...once again, they are already knocking it out of the park with the starter set. Between the starter and the princeps sets they are probably sitting on a load of reaver and warhound sprues? Hmmm...

I'm assuming that this weekend's pre order was originally scheduled for Christmas when they usually do a battle force set, which this year they were about...£125 each for the AoS and 40K kits? Maybe the drastic discount was to make up for the late arrival of the princeps kit...

Still, no matter. Just got to wait another 3-4 months to see what they release next for the game. Hopefully Gorgon will then get some new scout titans to torment that new Warmaster...

Would be nice to get Rapiers! Although my Spidey-Sense says Corrupted Titans might be next in association with the Traitor legios book. That's something that FW could handle with resin like the Psi-Titan...no plastics manufacturing required. Not sure how much more we'll get in plastic this year given the continuing COVID delays and backups.

They wouldn't have too much trouble cutting molds for plastic and would broaden the appeal for those who dislike resin stuff.

I don't care either way but would prefer plastic 2:1 & will be glad when it's not just same vs same

The book is worth it because it's basically 1d4chan's compendium of all the rules in one place. Just have all 50 loyalist stratagems in one book alone is useful, add to that all the maniples. And they're also for the first time putting weapons stats in a book not just the cards.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

It would be nice if they included the data cards for all the titans and knights as well, would give them a chance to make an acastus 2.0 as well.

I don't expect corrupted titans with the chaos compendium. That's more a new book release. I'm still thinking the belicosa warbringer will be a plastic kit coming along with codex traitor legios since they also need to do the other 2 arm weapons and could include the Mars delta head.

I love how solid it looked.

I had worried from the initial pics it might lack sufficient depth for its sheer height, but that top down look has availed such fears.

bit of bad news, seems like, at least in the USA, GW has rescinded trade orders for the Battleforce and are making them direct/webex only.

Tell me about it. I went from insta-buy through my favorite Huge Trade Account Retailer With Big Discounts For Repeat Customers to "gosh if I suddenly find myself with $185 and nothing to do with it maybe I'll order it"

At the expense of something else, sure. Not really a secret that their manufacturing capacity has been stretched.

Ah well, it won't be the end of the world for me if they don't sell it through online retailers in the UK, I have all the titans I need (except Warmaster ofc), only reason to get the maniple battleforce is the ridiculous saving, if they aren't offering that I just won't bother. Still I hope this isn't the case, and obviously this sucks hard for US buyers that want this box.

If this happens here it will lose us a new player who was going to jump in with the battleforce

I'm not saying it isn't a shame, mind you. It just isn't a big surprise given the continuing shortages of...lots of things.

On the bright side half the set is still available with discount in the starter set, so its not a total loss.

From what I understood the maniple is still about 100 euros discount over buying the contents separately. If I can't get it through FLGS (who sells at RRP anyway) then I am going to get it from GW.

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

It'll be a dumb ass move if it happens in the UK, although its not the first time GW have recended orders from FLGS and made them "Web exclusive". My FLGS has 4 new players, all buying the new Battleforce from them. So that's x4 lots of profit from these not going to a local store, IF GW do this in the UK.

This, at a time when local stores which have not been able to open their doors for months desperately need the business.

GW's manufacturing capacity is nowhere near stretched and never has been, as nearly all of their products are cheap and easy to make, they're simply producing everything in tiny amounts, as always, so people rush to buy as much as possible as fast as possible.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Come on, It's obvious. Just look at Indomitus or Cursed City or Sisters of Battle army box for examples, literally just a bunch of cardboard and plastic, and yet they produced juuust enough for it to sell out in minutes. No way it wasn't planned, since given GW's history of most box sets selling out nearly instantly you'd think they would've caught on they gotta make more, if they honestly wanted to keep it in stock for more than a ten minutes. But they clearly refuse to.
