yeah warmachine stuff is pretty well known these days, and more expensive than platinum coated gold with a diamond center

The single modles are Ok but yeah, I know how pricey they would be to make a whole army, but mixed in with gw minis i think would be cool. as for tourneys if your a tournament player then point taken but if not they take up so little hobby time and when you go to those events you could leave your non-gw s at home.I'd much rather take a a army with awesome models over taking your average GW stuff to a tourney.

Actually, to get started and in to warmachine is far less expensive than 40k.

And what does it take to start an army in 40K?

starter set+marine battleforce = 1000pts army if I remember correctly, sell the orks, buy a codex, so maybe £100 or less and you have yourself rulebooks, templates, dice, codex and 43 models.

Yes but how many of us actually start that way? A lot of people tailor a force from scratch...

$96 for warmachine. All you need is a battlegroup and the rulebook. If you want paint that is going to add another 17.99 and maybe $4 for a standard brush purchased at a crafts store. Total is around $117.

Ok for orks you will need just a battle for black reach and a codex. Thats 119. Now you have to go buy paints.

Doesn't a Warmachine battlegroup have only 3-5 minis?? :shok: Overpriced seems like an under statement...
Yeah but thats your entire army..... opposed to most of the GW starters which you can't even field without buying another 20-30 $ worth of shit.

why do i need a codex? i can start playing 40k with two armies with assault on black reach for $84.

so with warmachine i get a squad of minis and a rule book for $96

come on now lets be honest here its at the very least $12 cheaper to start 40k and im gonna get a shit load more models too.

When the pirates at privateer can match that deal and the quality/number of minis then the world will sit up and take notice.

thats not the point though is it, the question was how much an army costs, that is an army.

rulebook £20
paints £15
starter set £35
total £70 for up to 5 models a book and paints, and 5 models in the new rules is a complete waste of time really.

for £30 extra your getting almost another 40 models, and if you wanna afford paints, well if your doing marines and selling the orks you have enough money to buy a pot of blue and a pot of yellow and a pot of boltgun and black

or even cheaper, buy black reach, trade orks for marines (or vice versa), buy a few paints, and your done for £50-60, and your opponent only has to spend the same amount if there trading all the extras with you, so you actually have 2 armies for £100-120, instead of 10 models for £140+

despite my dislike for GW, I dislike PP's prices a hell of allot more for the tiny amount that you get

Its still cheaper and faster to set up an army and get to playing with warmachine.

And where do you get your prices? I am getting them of GW and they dont match that at all. Tbh GW games are probably close to the most expensive wargames out there. Yes, with warmachine you are paying alot for one model but that one model is 1/3 of your entire army.

And that 96 is the equivalent of fielding a 1000 point army or so. How much for a 1000 point force from GW? BTW, that 96 is across the board. Can GW say that about each of its armies? Hell no.

Does the AoBR have a codex in it?

from memory, but now I see black reach is actually £55, not just £50, wow such a huge difference, still 2 black reach, 1 hobby starter set you and friend can share = £140 and 100 models for 2 people.

allot better than £140 and up to 10 models for 2 people, and I'm afraid no matter how much you say 1 model is 1/3rd of your force, its still only 1 model that you've spent a fortune on, the fact its a fraction of your army does not soften the blow in the slightest.

and warmachine ibeing faster does not mean better, if your one of those players who likes to end it in turn 2 then you just both spent £140 to set up 10 models for less than 30 minutes, how can anyone enjoy that?

thats like organizing a mass orgy with 100 teenage women and only lasting 10 minutes everyone is left unsatisfied and with empty wallets from the journey

it has rules for the models that come in the box in the box
