Dark Vengeance is only a short few days before pre-orders and now we have the pricing and release information regarding both the Limited Edition and the Standard Starter Sets.

via Faeit 212 (a Must Remain Anonymous Source)

The Standard 6th Edition Starter that does not have the Chaplin in it will not be available upon initial release. 

Only the Limited Edition Starter Set will be available on release day. Sept 1. Once it sells out, no more are being produced. At that point only the standard edition will be available.

The prices for Dark Vengeance are the following.... US Dollars
Limited Edition: $107
Standard $99

The only difference between the sets is the Chaplin model for Dark Angels. 

There will be a transition period where stores are carrying both by nature of sales vs. order. 
Either the next run, or the one after that (I can't confirm) will be when standards start


From a different source
I am told that the standard starter sets will not be available until after the 8th.

    2. I actually just heard the same price moments ago from my FLGS owner. I figure you might as well go for the limited run for $8 more. The chaplain mini itself would probably cost twice that alone.

  3. It's really a fair price for a lot of really sweet figures.
    I'm very tempted to get two starter sets...

  4. So will the limited edition be available for preorder on the 25th, or is it in-store only?

    1. My understanding is you will be able to pre-order it starting on the 25th. Stores are already ordering theirs (I can only speak for independents).

    2. Thanks! (I just joined your site, so the name is different)

  5. It appears to be £60-65 (£62.9991) for the standard and £70-75 (£68.09) for the limited set, from those numbers. It's not that much of a difference, really. Even so, the Chaplain will probably become worth loads later in the year, assuming DA is coming next year.

  8. People thought GW was going to "screw" them and price this thing at $125. That would have been a good value anyway, but now it's the best deal in miniatures gaming.

    1. Am guessing the reason for it is that they couldn't price it too much over IoB as people new to the hobby might be more inclined to go for the cheaper option.
      It is still damn expensive remember. We are just prepared to pay that price because we have grown up with GW price increases and our passion for the hobby. Mum and Dad who are new to the prices whose kid wants them to spend over $125 for something classed as a starter set with bits of plastic and a book? Not so much..

    2. Yes it all depends on comparison. This Hobby costs depending on how much you spend.

      Some People Play a videogame for a Year others Need a New One every Month or more. So you cant really compare to anything but youre paycheck & what you have over at the end of the Month!

      If you only want One of the Armys its Not really that Good of a Deal just a Bit better than a BF. If you Need all the stuff its a Great Deal if you compare it to regulare Kits. Compare it to other Box Games its really Bad.
      The VD Box is clearlly Designed for starters you will Need to BuY at least 1 more CSM to have a Balancend Game. Some Terrain a Board & painting gear and youre suddenly starting with 500 to just get the Basics. At wich Point you will keep Investigation to Not lose youre starting Investment. So ita really and endless Cycle of Dumping Money into 1 Game. And a Lot of it is haveing People wait for New Dex, New ED or Start a New Army caus GW keeps turning the balance Wheel.

      Best is to Stick with 1 Army & Not get carried away!
      I save so much Since i droped my 2nd & 3ed Army ;)

    3. hyperbole much? it is a good deal though

    4. Just for those perhaps alittle miffed at the pricetag, I will post the Australian price when i find it out.
      The $99 & $107U.S. tag translates to around $95 & $101.50ish Au, but i'm prepared to bet It'll be closer to $150+ here...
      We'll see huh? Damn rip-off merchants milking the Aussie cash-cow dry :-p

      Delete
    5. Hyperbole? It is an exaggeration this is a very expensive hobby? I think not.

      I was just stating why I think they have kept it closer to the IoB sales tag... Unless you were trolling in which case I tip my hat to you good sir.

  12. I guess my local store ordered like 6 of them. I'm getting at least one.

    Anyone know if GW is going to put on a painting competition like they did for AoBR?

    1. He will be disappointed. I have the Sept release list, and the standard starter sets are not available until the 8th.

  17. AoBR gone from Gw site.

  18. Just wondering what price these are going to be in Australia and if we are going to pay the 50% you live in our colony tax extra when our dollar is so strong at the moment, and has been for a while

    1. I too was wondering this. How much was the aobr set over there in the US? Was $165 here. Should give me an approximate pricing comparing the two.

      Delete
    2. I'm doing the same here in Canada. AoBR was 118.75 here, and 99 in the US, so I'm aiming for the same. Still not sure on getting one tho.....

      Delete
    3. Well that bites! Be looking at at least $180! We have a strong dollar, yet we pay ~65% more. Yeah so called freight and overheads are just that bad in oz. No wonder I buy everything from the net!

  19. So I am very glad that there are not two separate start sets. There are 29 Models in this set, where in Assault on Black Reach had -
    1 Capt, 1 Dread, 5 Terms, 10 Marines =17
    1 Ork Warboss, 5 Nobs, 20 Boys, 3 Deffkoptas = 29
    So 17 less models for around the same price as AoBR.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Chaos = 27
    DA = 20 + 1 (Chaplian)
    Total = 47 to 48 total figures

    VS

    AOBR = 46 total figures

    One hell of a deal if you ask me!

    Can't wait!
