Right, interesting. Steeper end if it is indeed a new starter set, which I hope it is.
Mind you we still don't know the full contents, it could have lots of books stuff.

Doesn't look like it would be to be honest.
It looks an awful lot like the stand-alone board game it was advertised to be.
Given the interchangeable gaming board and the special dice and command cards pictured above.
Maybe, just maybe, it could serve as an introductory game of sorts to the FW Horus Heresy line, but I doubt even that. Personally, I'm of the opinion the whole box is just there to sell more plastic crack. GW themselves have stated on numerous occasions they're a miniature company first and foremost. That, as well as the last ... 'rules' releases (recent codices and the disastrous AoS) we have seen don't hind in a direction that makes me expect much from this game (except for cheap plastics to lure more people into FW products) in terms of a gaming experience.

If GW ever decides to change 40k into 'Age of the Emprah' or something along those lines (which then would be a new starter box eventually), they might lose even the better part of their 40k customers. Lots of people turned their backs on them for the joke that is AoS already.

We don't ?
Actually, the contents of the box were listed just one post above yours, indicating a single 48-page book.

40k Armies: Dark Eldar / Adepta Sororitas
WHFB Armies: Vampire Counts / Empire / various Elves
Horus Heresy: Alpha Legion / Warp Cult

Whether or not you want to play the actual game, getting a contemptor, three tactical squads, a squad of termies and two HQ minis that would be indistinguishable from their resin FW cousins when painted is gonna be a great value way to start a new army, be it 30k or 40k. To buy two SM HQs these days it'll cost €50 alone.

I may even be tempted if I get a chunk of work done over the winter

I apologise for the seeming misplacement of my post, if sent it before realising there was another page of info/pics.
I tried to edit this in but couldn't, but yes j now see more clearly what the box is about
