Dark Vengeance 40k starter box
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:18:16 PM »
With the details finally starting to come out about the contents, release date and MSRP...how many of you will be picking up the new sixth edition starter box?

What are your plans for the models inside?

Pre ordered 2 special edition ones last night,one for me and one for my nephew in Afghanistan.
The Dark Angels will go into my ever growing marine force.I mix all the models from different chapters together without paying any attention to marine chapter iconography and use whatever codex I feel like. 8)
Not sure what I'm going to do with the chaos models yet.I'll have 2 sets because my nephew has all ready told me he doesn't want his. I need to see them in the plastic to figure out if they can be added to my Guard.

I have an army for both Space Marines and Chaos, most of which are from starters and battle boxes. I'm not sure if I'll be able to use the Dark Angels as is, I'll probably strip some of the shoulder armour iconography from them if I do. I'm more interested in the CSM figures, it'll round out the force I already have started.

And I'm really looking forward to the small rule book.

Where did you pre-order it from?

Yeah, GW still operates under the assumption that the australian dollar is still only half the value of an amercan dollar like it was 5+ years ago. Same for the canadian dollar, they pay half again what we pay for items in the USA even though the currencies are more or less equivelant now and have been for a few years.`And instead of bothering to fix the issue and charge prices based on currency conversions, GW made it against the terms of service to ship internationally so that aussies couldn't order from UK retailers and pay to have it shipped and customs fees, which was still FAR cheaper than retail there. It's beyond silly.

Me, I just don't like the direction they took the rules. I was super into 3rd and 4th ed, but I think I played all of a dozen games of 5th edition, and everything I've read for 6th makes me think I'll like it even less. Shame, the new models look stunning, absolutely stunning. I may pick up a few loose figs via ebay bitz sellers just to paint up.

For us ignorant types, what is the difference between the special edition and the regular?


(besides the price   lol  )
Thanks

I'll wait for someone to put parts on ebay that way I pick up only what I want
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

I know what you mean about the southern hemisphere racism. I've ony bought 1 mini from GW since about 1995. THe Finecast Krell. $33 NZ when it's way less than half that in the UK. Anyway. I won't be buying the new box although I picked the cultists up from Bits and Kits. They are really the only thing that interest me. Necromunda Chaos Cult and also some extra Brood Brothers for my Genestealer cult. :) The Hellbrute looks incredibly awesome.

I contacted the folks at Blackdagger Games (http://stores.ebay.com/Blackdagger-Games) and they said they will definitely be the figures individually.

I don't do 40K but I definitely want a squad of the Chaos Cultists!

Dark vengeance as opposed to the light and frothy kind of vengeance, I suppose.
Back from the dead, almost.

Lots of figures in that box. Looks really good. As a (very) minor complaint, I do hope the templates aren't green, I'd like to see some more clear ones, or maybe even a different color. But I can always use my old ones instead for that.
