Horus Herasy Starter Set
Please let it be iron hands vs emperor's children

remember that these are rumors.

via Tim from the Faeit 212 inbox.
Forgeworld will release next Year a "Horus Heresy Starter Bundle" with Models, Rules &

Forgeworld do bundles as is. The main rules are 40k, what would be in these?

I'm taking this with a massive mountain of salt

Doelago 12-04-13 07:39 PM

Sounds interesting. I‘d certainly buy one.

Chryckan 12-04-13 07:42 PM

Why would forge world make a starter set?
Forgeworld makes exclusive high price miniatures to serious collectors and hobbyists.
Starter sets are aimed to bring beginners and kids into the hobby.
It just doesn't make sense.

A high priced (though discounted from normal model prices) boxed set to bring people into Forgworld. Makes as much sense as not. Especially if the models in it aren't unique. In that case it has minimal overheads and could get a *lot* more people into forgeworld and hence spending real money. Possibly.

Sounds very interesting. I would speculate that they would have produced this along with the first Horus Heresy book a while before now if it was just about getting more people into Forgeworld. I can't see them producing it now unless:

1) They wanted to see whether the Horus Heresy would be popular first.
2) This has something to do with the rumoured merger of GW, Forgeworld and Black Library all into one entity with the new website launch next year.

Personally rather skeptical about this one, although I would love to see it happen and I would be right in there as soon as it was released.

Unless there was value for money similar to the Dark Vengeance set I wouldn't be bothered with a HH box. If it was cheap enough that you could split two boxes with a mate and double up on your given army, it'd be a goer.

Surely a Heresy starter set would just be Erebus and Horus minis..?


Chaplain-Grimaldus 12-04-13 10:01 PM

I'm expecting my shipment of salt in the next few weeks. Won't be taking this seriously until that gets here!

SwedeMarine 12-04-13 11:39 PM

Id Buy one. Ive been interested in possibly branching into HH and this would be a good way to do it.
