I know it's not much to go on, but my LGS told me a couple of months before the release what he expected the price of the rule book and collectors edition books (he didn't say anything about the gamers edition) to be and was pretty much spot on, he then also told me that he expected to see the box set to be around 75

Not that I doubt DA are coming very soon after September - but it wouldn't be the first time if they did have a delay.



Am I the only one who feels that... Well, a starter set with Marines Vs Marines is a bad thing for the game, though?

I realse most people are excited at the prospect of cheap models to bulk out their Marine armies and that's fair enough - no sense beating that dead horse.

But, for the state of the game, I cannot help but feel this is a very bad thing. When this Marine Vs Marine kit was first rumoured months ago I joked that it'd be called Assault on a Typical Night at the Gaming Club.

Really, I can only see this kit making things worse. At least some of the new players introduced through previous kits played Orks or 'Nids (or gods help them, Dark Eldar...)

I do feel happy that Marine players will have a wealth of cheap new models for their armies, but I just hope they feel it's worth it a year or three down the line when non-Marine armies are even rarer than they are today. I feel a great swell of disquiet when I meditate upon the future of 40k heralded by this set.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

Should be a good way to bulk out my Chaos army I'm just starting and if I can convince my cousin that he wants to start building an army then we could go halves. I shall pray to the Chaos Gods.

Just prior to the 5th ed C:SM book to test all the C:SM nerfs they called off. Just in time for the C:SM book no less. Though I thought both books were 4th edition so neither is much more out of date and needing updates more than the other. Maybe the new rules change this a bit. Of course neither of those lists are enitrely possible with the existing codex's if I'm reading that right...

EDIT: Wrong edition, oops

Current marine book was 5th ed, the first one if I recall

I'm not going to 100% yet but if the marine models are good and the chaos models are good and its good value I may end up buying 2 sets like I did for Isle of Blood.

I'm hoping they stick to the redemptionist/ DoW style for the cultists rather than mutants, I like the idea that cultists have made a choice to follow chaos rather than being forced to due to marginalised stigma

Nah. They were late mid 4th ed with Chaos, Daemons and Orks following them. They were preceeded by Space Marines, Tyranids, Black Templars, Tau and Eldar.

Anyways I don't think I will buy this set. Neither of the armies suit my playstyle. I was kinda half thinking they might do a tiny allied unit in each one like a squad of inducted Stormtroopers for the Dark Angels to represent some helpful inquisition help and a unit of "proper" Daemons to represent summoned reinforcements.

Then again it sounded cooler in my head perhaps.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Sounds unusual-specially with the tac having the choice of 2 plasmaguns

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere

That's what I meant. There are Codex's that let you do that within a single unit, but DA doesn't specify that at all.
