It's exactly the same price. No discount at all.

Ah thanks @Angel of Blood

Saves me messing around with a calculator as I'm terrible at maths!

I'll probably end up buying it for ease and convenience of having it all in one go as I definitely need the codex and the Terminators & Librarian would be minis that I'd be getting down the line anyway.

Roll on payday

I've barely even scratched my 30k stuff but that Skitarii deal is really fuggin' tempting......

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

The rules for these have been released.

Per the forums at BOLS

SM
-pick a unit from the formation close to the captain,that unit can fire in the movement phase instead of moving (and then can still fire in the shooting phase)

Mechanicus
-pick an enemy unit within 18" of the dominus and within his LoS at the start of the shooting phase,all units from the formation repeat to hit against that unit for that phase

Tyr
-if the gargoyle are close to the Tyrant during the movement phase,you can immediatly remove them from the game and place them back in the same turn coming from deep strike.If they DS close to the warrior unit from the formation,they dont scatter

Necron
-when the scarabs and warrior units from the formation are destroyed,you place them back in game close to the overlord at the start of the next turn

Guard
-All infantry has 4+ cover while standing near the LR

Tau
-Pick a unit close to the ethereal,remove all the models of that unit save for one,then redeply all those models keeping cohesion with the model you left on the field.Not sure how often/when you can do it



I did hear from someone who has his hands on the AdMech one already and confirmed that it's legit for at least that one.

^ I was just reading those. The Necron one is...well, pretty damn ridiculous at this first glance.

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

They do seem very all over the place at first glance. Tau seem pointless.

Necrons they may have gotten wrong... some spin on Resurrection Protocols where they get an extra chance to come back, maybe?

There's a special rule called 'Without Number' or something, right? Nids get it a lot?

Man, if I hadn't already spent my 40k budget this month, I'd snag one of these. Any idea how long these deals will be around?

I'm surprised that people haven't worked out that the sets further down the page are old single click deals and not the new boxed sets. The blood angels, harlies, orks etc etc hadn't been released yet. This is just the tip of the iceberg, my money is on monthly releases for the rest of the year.

No, from what I've read if you weren't one of those six armies, you not only knew but were downright offended by the fact that you only got a retail bundle instead of one of these special sets.

The ones they selected were the ones with a lot of existing momentum for sales. I think it's pretty fair to say they picked their six best selling armies and made a bundle with additional rules and a really easy way to offer something that will bulk up forces.

They also had some specific design rules around them, which some armies couldn't fill. You needed an HQ unit that currently is in production in a plastic clam pack, a 10-man unit on sprue, and one 'large' item like a vehicle. Nids were the opposite, since their 'big' unit was their HQ.

That actually invalidates a few armies right off the bat: Grey Knights and Space Wolves come to mind as lacking that HQ model. They didn't bother with Demons because they added 2 to the AoS starter sets, giving you Khorne and Nurgle Demons, and a really nice boost for KDK also. Chaos, if I had to guess, didn't get one because the only plastic s a Chaos Terminator Lord, and that'd match too much like Marines. Plus, I can be slightly optomistic that they didn't want any formations coming out so close to a possible new codex.
