Default A question about the Black Reach box

hi guys

just thought id ask, the miniatures in the Assault on Black Reach box, are they the same models as you would get if you bought them alone?

For instance, the Ork Boyz, are the sprues the same as if i bought a box with Ork Boyz?

No, The Boyz and marines are push together single pose while the ork boyz can be built in a multitude of poses.

If you buy a box of just SM or Boyz they will be more complex to put together, you need glue because they don't just snap together.

The black reach stuff for the marines is a full body, a backpack, and a gun with the hands molded to it. I am sure the orks are like this also. The things you get from the multipart kits tend to have legs, arms, heads, bodies, ect ect.

The Ork sprues generally look like this.



And the Marines look like this.

I like my multipart sets better, the Black Reach stuff has less detail in some areas, more detail in others but they are all very static in their poses. The multipart sets allow you to give them more 'action' by poseing them differently.

Once assembled they are the same size and aesthetic as other models, so if I understand your question, they will look the same.

I was wondering whether it's worth getting the Black Reach terminators? I know some places are selling the 5 of them for 10.

If you don't mind having crappy regular Terminators, sure.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.
