So....New 30k Mini-Game from GW?
 
Hmmmmm....

If they are devoid of chapter markings as the sprues revealed so far suggest, this could be a pretty swanky way to make a 30k army.

BoLS says something about it being IF vs IW. Battle of Phall but who knows. If they don't have chapter markings, not sure how that would be possible. Plus those two factions are basically two sides of the same time, especially pre/during heresy.

Have you checked out the sprues? If this is legit then there's nothing unique about these models aside from what transfer you apply to the shoulder.

The game itself is almost inconsequential to my desire for less expensive, plastic, and more accessible Heresy-era models without resorting to Chinese knockoff manufacturers. That being said, it could be cool if it is what it's rumoured to be. I just hope it's not "players 1+" like the Assassins game was. I used to love goading my older sister through sheer attrition of will into games of Space Hulk when 2nd edition came out.

Fuckin' classic right there.

I've seen the sprues and honestly, it didn't really even look like two different armies. Just one big one.

Game or not, the models will be coveted and pretty cool if you ask me. I already have plants to death-guard mine up, and make some ancient Plague Marines still wearing their heresy era armor, albeit a bit decayed and gritty.

I think this is they key. GW is releasing a game that can be played on its own, used as an add-on to any existing army, or used as the start of a new army.

Either way I like what I've seen so far.

Be pretty nifty if that's genuine :)

I like it too. Thats one of the more interesting things about 30k, a lot of the armies can use all the same models, but the color schemes and compositions dictate which legion it is.

So, what are the bets on price?
I'm going in at 60 for the starter set.

I'll go with 80 for the starter........

70 is ~$150 CAD, I'd expect it to be about there unless there's just a ton of models in it. Dark Vengeance is $130 and has snap together models and Shield of Baal Deathstorm was $150 with 'normal' models.

If this is indeed around the $150 mark I may just have a 30k army in the works! My biggest problem: what Chapter to do...

Rumoured to be in the box:

2x 10 man Tactical squads
Captain in Power Armour
Captain in Cataphractii Termiator Armour
Cataphractii Terminators
Veteran/Specialist squad

A healthy start to any collection of muhreenz!
