One day 6th Edition will be here (knowing GW it'll be around the 2012-2013 date mark) and I can't imagine they won't release a starter set as they've done with 3rd, 4th, and 5th Edition, so what would your dream starter set be?

Personally I'd love to see Imperial Guard and Eldar.
20 Guardsmen, Command Squad, Heavy Weapon Squad, and a Sentinel for the IG; and a squad of Dire Avengers, Autarch, 3 Jetbikes, and a Wraithlord for the Eldar

I was trying to be realistic with what they could fit in the box as I doubt they could fit a Chimera/Leman Russ, or Falcon Grav Tank in the box.

[Before anyone says it, yes we know Space Marines will be one of the forces in the eventual set but this is 'wish' thread]

I may be somewhat influenced by my army, but i'd like to see Eldar get into the box set, jetbikes, Avengers, a farseer and maybe a war walker or wraithlord would be nice.

Other armies that could be worth a shot would be IG, as the original poster mentioned a good force for them. Chaos marines, just to give them something over their imperial counter-parts. Maybe some nids....ohh nids and IG, then everyone can just do their own version of the Starship Troopers movie.

Do they even have a ML blisterpack?

Edit: oh shit I didn't read the question completely. I would like to see wolves vs thousand sons since I play wolves but, really, we need to have something else besides another marine kit. I feel asthough a new one should include either GK or SOB. Perhaps a GK/sob vs DE/DC.

we can wish all we want, but it will always be SPESS MAHREENS vs something. But if i could have a say, then how about DH vs CD, now that would make for a fluffy game (+ we might get plastic grey knight termies)

Squats vs Zoats
I second that!!!

Personally I'd love to see something really fluffy like Thousand Sons vs Space Wolves with say 10 TS, 5 Termies with cool Tzeentchy armour and a Termie Sorcerer for TS and 10GH, 3 TW Cav and a Rune Priest, now that would be cool.

Eldar VS Necrons - fits well with both armies with the story lines and would allow for plastics of certain units that need it ie; they could put wraithguard or banshees in it and for the necrons wraiths and immortals (well atm they could put anything in it and it would make it a plastic set)

I quite like this combo.
Perhaps something like...

Space Elves
Plastic Farseer
10 Dire Avengers or Guardians
5 Howling Banshees or Harlequins
Wraithlord

Space Robots
Plastic Lord
10 Warriors
5 Immortals or Pariahs
3 Destroyers or 1 Heavy Destroyer

I would actually second this one. It actually seems do-able and viable

I was going to say Tau vs DEldar. With the improvement of models, especially the one-piece, snap-fit models you get in the starter, the Crisis Suits would be awesome; what the True Kin would get is anyone's guess.
However, I'll go along with DH vs CD. With the new GKs coming out next year (if the rumours are to be believed), then there will already be plastics available for Troops and Elites, which could allow for some schmexy character pieces to sneak into the box. The Daemons could have, oooh, plastic Flamers, some sort of plastic Heralds, maybe plastic Fiends. Maybe, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, plastic An'ngrath! (I appear to be hallucinating at this point.)

Grey Knights vs Chaos Demons for the wins! That would be epic! Or Grey Knights vs Ultramarines...

And the story would be like: "The gayest Space Marine ever to have lived, known as Marneus Calgar, has been possessed by a Slaneshi demon, and the Grey Knights must kill him and destroy the chapter"


Result: "Marneus Calgar was killed, along with every member of his chapter, and the Grey Knights suffered no cassualties casue they are so much cooler and the are not gay, nor are they smurfs or hippies, and no, they dont use a gay color combination."


Copies produced: 5 000 000

Copies Sold: 5 000 000

= Best starter box ever (!!!)

Can't argue with that idea... Nothing like a grudge match in a box.
