I think most assume its going to be limited because thats how GW seem to run there boxed games lately, they release them for varying lengths of time then they go away. So people are naturally assuming that BaC is also limited.

I personaly hope its not limited because its a really nice way to start a force, 1 box puts you in the right direction, 2 gets you well on the way and gives you a usable force and a good points level.

Because I have little trust and even less faith in GW

Well, if it's limited their 'boxed game' category will be pretty lame.

It's pretty lame now actually.

Anyone else checked put gameplay stuff and noticed the similarity between BaC's hit/crit/shield reality and X-Wing's hit/crit/evade setup? I'd be posting stuff up like a madman because there's no lack of content to share, but I'm stuck dans mon phone on vacation and links and such annoy me without my PC.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Honestly how much money does one think will come from this plan? What will happen if GW figured out how to keep this in stock, not to mention a ton of LGS's offering it for ~20% less anyway or eBay retailers parsing out the contents forcing you to do the same (leaving you with a board game no one seems to care about)?
Well I can only speak from my situation as to why I do it. For me buying and selling 40k stuff is hopefully going to become a full time business. And right now business is good, I have been doing this for several months now and I have either doubled or some months tripled what I make at my regular job. And with 7 people living in my house I need the extra cash.

But back to the topic I have a simple formula if I buy something I have to sell it for double or close to double what I paid. I got through a store my box preordered for $125 US dollars plus a free bag of swag. So I only need to sell the box for $255 US to make up my money. GW is preordering them for $265 US. So already I am cheaper and I make a profit. Now it is close to the holiday's and GW is not going release any till after Christmas. Are people going to go crazy stupid and throw lots of cash to get what they want? OF course they are. Just look at the BB-8 toy from Star Wars. Sells for $80 US dollars people were asking and getting $300 US dollars for one. So I plan on putting mine on Ebay or other sites around December and asking $300 I should get it as people will want it for Christmas.
It is a risk but any business venture is but I paid so low for my box I can go super low if I have to or I can break up the pieces of the box and I'll make my money back. I think this box set is GW testing the waters of 30K this will hopefully lead to armies being formed but I think they want to see if there is a market for 30K. I hope there is but as sad as it is this is business and the goal is to make money. Right now buying and selling 40k miniatures is feeding my family and paying my bills.

Thanks GrimzagGorwazza for the link - I have just placed an order for the Betrayal At Calth box and a few other items a great saving. I did not know about this shop before.

There is also free postage on orders over 50 to N. Ireland.

@morfangdakka , the box is $180 CAD potentially going up to $220 CAD after preorders based on this picture:



Maybe I grew up with a bit too much punk rock but I simply can't get behind that level of (attempted) profiteering. I feel for you on having to support family since I am in a similar situation looking for ways to make extra cash, but damn. You're just straight planning on ripping some poor sap off.

Well I feel foolish I didn't realize my computer had my on the Australian GW website not the US one. Well I'll still take the gamble that I will make my money on it.

I honestly don't understand how our southern hemi bros play this game...the Australian prices are off the chain.

With that said, if you can get it for $135 from your FLGS thats still a great deal...especially if the weird white dwarf leak is correct about the price going up to $185ish in the future.

I'm hoping they don't do something that assinine, but then again GW.

So, I caved and ordered my copy for this. I'm undecided as to whether I'm keeping it or sell it around Christmas for some extra present money. If I do keep it then I'm making the whole set into one Legion, just have to decide which Legion.
