For those who haven't heard about this yet, this September sees the release of a new two player starter boxed set.
Its been listed as approximately $99.
The contents have been listed as;
Rules booklet (86 pages)
17 plastic Warmachine models with corresponding stat cards, which are;Khador Army
Warcaster Kommander Sorscha
Juggernaut Heavy Warjack
Destroyer Heavy Warjack
Man-O-War Shocktrooper Unit(5)Protectorate Of Menoth Army
Warcaster High Exemplar Kreoss
Crusader Heavy Warjack
Vanquisher Heavy Warjack
Repenter Light Warjack
Exemplar Cinerators Unit(5)
For those who are unsure of what this means, to put this into perspective, the Khador starter boxed set contains Sorscha, the Juggernaut and Destroyer Warjacks, and costs $49.99. The metal Man-O-War unit would cost £83.97 to buy the 5 minis. Straight away, you see the price saving. That is a 25point army.
Looking at the Menoth army, you can see the same. The starter boxed set contains Kreoss, the Crusade, Vanquisher and Repenter Warjacks, and is also $49.99. The Exemplar Cinerators would cost $44.99 to buy. That is approxmately also 25points.
So, for roughly $99, there is nearly $229 worth of minis in the boxed set, thats two fully fledged armies.
(Incidently, anyone who buys the boxed set, I might be willing to swap you the Menoth minis for the Khador ones ;) )
