Infact.. Some of these deals could end up costing you money.

Take for instance the 'Imperial Sheild Company' for the Imperial Guard. It costs 252.... for what you get in it, if you were to instead buy 3 battleforce boxes, then get the command squad and advisors separately, it only costs you 251, plus you get 3 sentinals extra... Those 3 sentinals would cost you 54 to buy extra.

The Necron Infinite Phalanx... It costs the same as 10 boxes of warriors, but, you don't get the scarabs with them you would normally.

The War Council of Mandragora is also cheaper if you bought it separately piece by piece...

The then Windrider Host for Eldar is also 210... separately, it'd cost you 206.


In other words, i'd suggest people shop smart and buy things separately, rather then using these one click deals.
I think the Warrior sprues have scarabs on them though.

Ah yeah, they're on the weapon sprue.. silly me. Stupid not to make mention of them though assuming that the package will just be 10 boxes of warriors.

Has someone already posted all the Apocalypse Formations?

Seems GW has thrown together them all as quick buy bundles on their website...

Apocalypse Formations

As predicted, everyone buy Sisters get a formation...

Seems a single vehicle is enough for a formation?

I'm hoping that it turns out that they only made one-clicks of the new or adjusted formations because they had a couple of formations for Sisters formations before and it really seems silly that they wouldn't just slap them in there as is since they still worked.

I'm thinking some of these "formations" are datasheets for the superheavies and they just wanted to include them there.

Some of the formations look good just as they are. But I want to see the special rules for fielding them. Surely that Infinite Phalanx has some additional rules, such as better reanimation or the units going back into Reserve when destroyed to come on again. Maybe the formations have no extra rules but then what is the advantage of fielding an Assault Company over a Battle Company?

In the current book there's a Rough Rider formation, I think it was, that has absolutely no special rules.
The advantage is that they're a formation, so they arrive from Reserves together, and I think a few other little things like that.

Looks like GW are not going balls out with this release of Apocalypse, which is a shame i really liked the discounted multi tank kits and such last time around, would have liked to have seem some updated units come along for this release too,guess they are holding them in reserve for codex releases.

Nah, Wells is still crying himself to sleep over the money he lost in the first Apocalypse release. Looks like they won't make the same mistake twice.
