I reckon transluscent green. It's nice to see a bit of diversity in the Chaos guys. They seem more like SM + IG rolled into one... but evil.

Those Chaos Cultists make the boxed set for me!  I will be trading for as many sets of them as I can!

Oh man, I did not give the tenth part of a crap about this new box until I saw those cultists. Hopefully they'll be affordable on the secondary market.

With their push back to games that tell stories, rather than appease tournament play, I'm considering picking some stuff up.

The fact that I just started planning a true-scale Nurgle CSM army was just damned good timing.

So it's 46 plastic figures for £65 ?

.. and an A5 rulebook that goes for silly money on EBay.  There is usually some scenery,too.

Also love the cultists, (traitor IG back on the agenda) but as I believe they are to be a choice in the new CSM Codex (Sept/Oct release) there should be an actual box of just them available at some point.

I definitely don't need that set and will likely have little opportunity to use it, but it's tempting.  Not sure about the terminator models but the Chaos ones do look good, especially the cultists.  They'd be useful for Necromunda/skirmish gaming.

The starter for fifth edition (Assault on Black Reach) didn't have any terrain in it, and this box doesn't look any different. I'd rather have more figures in my starter box than terrain anyway.

Terrain is not important enough to take up valuable space in a starter box.  Having said that I liked the terrain in the 3rd Ed box, which I still have, as well as some of the old card 'buildings' from the 2nd Ed box!

I might hit eBay for the cultists. I had a dream a year or so ago about GW bringing out new Necromunda miniatures which looked a lot like these. Not that I'm saying GW have a huge machine that reads peoples' dreams or anything but those price rises must have been paying for something...  ::)

Dark Vengeance has just shown up on the GW New Zealand site. $210 for the limited edition. Thats around about 105 pounds. :-[ :'( lol ;D >:( :o :? So many emotions to describe this soul sucking price. Compared to the UK 65 pounds.

I am a Warhammer virgin, and this boxset will take my "flower"...

Having read that back, it's more disturbing than it was intended...

Good Idea Scurv. I'm not considering buying it myself. As I think I have said previously, I bought the Cultists through bits and kits for 25 pounds. Strangely enough I can buy from bits stores in the UK. If I bought every bit through a bits store to get a complete pack of something I think it still turns out cheaper. I don't really buy from GW anymore anyway. I just look for 2nd hand stuff as it's way cheaper.
