A special limited run edition of the starter set appears to be in line for 6th Edition, as well as some details as to what the Dark Angels side of the starter set may include.

Please remember that these are rumors and give them the standard amount of salt.

There is a special (Limited run) edition of the Starter Set.

Stickmonkey
The Dark Angel Tactical squad are not the Assault on Black Reach marines, these are new sculpts and there is Dark Angel iconography on them.

One bit I'm really not certain on is this bit, but I've had some info passed on that the Dark Angel Tactical squad includes a Sergeant with Combi Weapon and Power Sword, 7 Bolter marines, 1 with Meltagun, and 1 with Plasma Cannon. I'd frankly be surprised if this is the load out though, and it wasn't the more generic Flamer and Missile Launcher.

  1. Excited about the special edition box if it happens. Hopefully it'll be in the $150-$175 range.

  3. The special edition box? Probably have just some extra terrain/artbook. But maybe not. I just want the tiny rulebook grrrrr.

    1. I hope it doesn't have any special limited edition sculpts... Because I don't have enough money to afford any of this at the moment, and I'll be so p***ed off if I miss out on the chance to get some amazing models.
      BTW Stickmonkey, Meltagun and Plasma Cannon makes more sense if it's power armour vs power armour.

    2. And a plasma cannon is so DA. Hopefully the weapon isn't rubbish in 6th lol

  7. Any word on the chaos variants?

    Also, any ideas about the different rule book variants..... Really hoping there will be the uber collectors edition (like WHB leather bound tome)

  8. And all us non-power armour players are just sitting here in fetal position, rocking backwards and forwards telling ourselves it'll be alright. XD

    I'm still living in hope for the starter not being PA vs PA, as a recent rumour claimed the plastic chaos dread NOT being in the box, whereas Hastings claimed it was 100%. Rumour inconsistency is fine and all, but who should we believe?

    1. Well the Chaos is going to have Cultists, as well as a rule set for Traitor Guard! That will make up for it... The 37th long for new combat!

  10. Hi - my son got bit by the WH 40K bug badly last week after stopping by a GW store by chance. He really likes the Orks and wants to get going on this as of yesterday, but with the new 6th Ed rules coming out and likely new starter set as well, my question (as a newbie) to you all is, should we wait until the new starter set comes out in September, or is it still OK to get the Assault on Black Reach set now (or does that make no sense now)?

    If this is not the right area to post this, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    1. I would say get black reach for the orks, then get the rulebook off eBay

      Delete
    2. i would get the black reach with double orks no space marines. look around on online to find it. should be the same price as a normal box

      Delete
  11. i think that its good they stopped putting ultramarines in the starter sets everyone does them its annoying but i don't like the dark angels because i do 13th company space wolves
