Alaric Prime is a planet sundered by war as the Orkish Hordes assail the last bastion of resistance, Sacred Mountain. Imperial Knights and Cadians regiments are all but defeated. Face Rippas death was exaggerated, Krom Dragongaze, a new special character for Space Wolves is set for epic clash as the second installment of Sanctus Reach  continues.

Images hold, but most likely contain more than these. 5 terminators, 1 special character-Krom Dragongaze, 5 Blood Claws, and 5 Grey Hunters.
10 gretchin, 1 special character-Grukk Face Rippa 3 Killa Kans,  Ork Boyz

  1. Hmmm doesn't look like its a startet set in the traditionnal way. Its seems to be a bundle box with 2 special characters. Because all the other models are from an existing kit. Unexpected...

    1. Looks like they're trying to come up with ever more cunning ways to sell.
      Want a plastic Chaplin? Well you're also going to have to pay for a command squad and razorback as well.
      Plastic terminator captain? Well to get that figure you're gonna also be buying a storm raven, landraider 2 terminator and 2 assault terminator squads.

      Looks like this boxed set is the next escalation of that model.

  2. I agree with Jessy, this doesn't feel like a starter kit. More a themed box to go with a campaign event (remember the rumoured Dark Vengeance Summer campaign?).

  3. Are the models on front of white dwarf all new?

    1. Nope. He's an old LE sculpt.

    2. Don't care, looks awesome :P

    3. Limited edition when? I've never seen that model before. He does however have the same pose as a Forge World 90mm Space Wolf bust.

      Delete
    4. I've never seen that sculpt and I have about 10k points of SWs going back a bit. I am trying to figure out if the Blood Claw and the GH have anything new on them..but not seeing it yet.

    6. Not exactly the same but seems based on that old Simon Egan sculpt.

      Delete
    7. Yeah, that doesn't look like Terminator Armor to me but he is on a large base right? Someone explain that to me unless I am not seeing something.

      Delete
    8. Makes me wonder if all the Wolf Lords just got bumped up into Lords of War and that is their new base size? Would be better fluff-wise if you could only normally take one of them but I am not going to be happy if I have to rebase them..lol.

      Delete
    9. He's just got a very wide stance. Space Wolves are well endowed.

      Delete
    10. Excepting that old Simon Egan sculpt is a 90mm model. That would take him out of the "Lord of War" slot and into "Gargantuan Creature" status...

      Delete
  4. How does Sanctus reach work? Will Krom be playable in regular 40k?

    1. I think its planetstrike and possible apocalypse. The formation that was in the last WD might have been an apocalypse formation, but I am not 100% sure in that.

      Delete
    2. Its a campain.
      So Missions & formations.
      And they tell you what Fraktions to use. So very narrativ.

      If Its like Ghazzy supplement you will need some other books (like planetstrike) to play the Missions.

      Delete
  5. It does say "Box Set" and not "Starter Set" but I can't recall if they ever referred to previous Starter Sets as starter sets. Also the other Wolves are all old. I hope its not just old models with two new characters in a big box.

    1. There are leaks of the new WD in which they clealry state that Dark Vengeance will get an update mini-rulebook, so i think its unlikely that this boxed set will be the new starter set. I hope it is, but its unlikely.

      Delete
    2. their not leaks when they are a month or so old. that WD was released when the BRB was, and it does indeed say that....but GW has a loose relationship with truth.

      Delete
    3. Ahh i see, i didnt know that as i tend to just look at the paint splatter section of wd. So that is not so relevant after all. We can still hope!

      Delete
    4. I'm hoping it's not along the same lines as the new plastic Terminator Captain where the character only is available in a $300+ box along with existing models, which seems to be the case unfortunately.

      Delete
    5. Tbh the wording in the WD re dark vengeance is a little ambiguous so not 100% that the plan is to swap the book. Just a watch this space.

      Delete
    6. for all we know they could be adding in MRB and these models instead to DV....unlikely but if they do you heard it here first from me. [would make sense if that part of rumor "blood" vengeance....what does that bit mean, and what do we know, i mean with any certainty, not alot i'd assume maybe will see more like this with Dark replaced with "?" whatever is to be released, maybe super unlikely they plan on doing more campaigns and make this sort of thing regular, time will tell as it always does]

      Delete
    7. They do campain Books all the Time. What are you talking?
      Every supplement and warzone book had Missions you could play 1 after the other.

      Delete
  6. I'm curious about the price this boxed set will have. I hope we can get some nice deal like the recent dread mob bundle, or the trukk boyz one. Too bad that the Grukk model seems to be a lazy conversion from the AoBR warboss

  7. I asked this source yesterday specifically whether or not this was a starter set. the answer was yes, with new sculpts.

    So now you know as much as I do.

    1. I hope this source is reliable. At least if he's wrong you know not to post his "rumors" anymore :D

    2. hhmmmm. Was he correct with the cover of the White Dwarf yesterday?

    3. I'm a wolf player and would be very happy to get some new sculpts, but I don't see it happening. Terms, Claws and GH's? None of those 2 sets are particularly old or dated. Unless they are some snap together stuff I just find it hard to believe they would put the resources and time into it for a limited audience. This isn't the kind of box that people would buy multiples of to fill out an army when you can just grab the same units off the shelf. This is basically one box of Wolf Pack and one box of Wolf Guard Terms with a character plus the Orks.
      I hope my gut feeling is wrong actually but will be really surprised.

      Delete
    4. As an Ork player for 10+ years with way more stuff then I could ever use. I will be buying 3-5 as these sets are usually a good value. Plus it's an easy way for me to get a SW army.

      Delete
    5. I would definitely buy 1 just to grab the character sculpt and split the Orks out with someone. I already have 2 great companies of Sws basically, Egil Iron Wolf (my mech wolves) and Harald Deathwolf (my lots of furry guys) so some more wolves never hurts..

      Delete
    6. if the kanz are snapfit......woohoooo glad i haven't managed to buy reg kanz. also i'd likely swap out the wolves for the orkz....i prefer team hulk to team jacob.....just saying ;)

      Delete
    7. Keep in mind that, as far as I still know, GW is always trying to hook new players into the hobby, and not necessarily satisfy the wet dreams of veteran players with already lots of stuff. This is very likely, IMHO, a "boxed set" that functions as a 2-player starter set, tying in with the Ork codex release, which we just had (finally), and the next codex release, which looks very likely to be SW, and the idea is Johnny & Billy buy the boxed set, a codex each, and somehow het their hands on the rules, and can start getting into the hobby.

      It remains to be seen whether this new boxed set contains a MRB, but we don't have very long to wait to find out...

    8. Their hands, not het hands. Is "het" even a word in English? My iPad seems to think so. Damn technology.., >_<

  8. So...nerf killa kans in a multitude of ways...then try to sell them in multiple sets.

    Poor killa kans. It's ok guys, it'll be ok.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Killa Kans didn't get nerfed the CC weapon was a little stronger before, but its not that big a deal, otherwise, they are the same price and can now have 6 in a Mob, the Cowardly Grot rule isn't that bad, I'd rather have 6 of them than the old Dreadnaught CCs

      Delete
    2. say that to armor value 12+

      Delete
    3. what was wrong with the old Dreadnought CCs ?

      Delete
    4. Kans are Strength 5, the +2 from the Kan klaw means they're Strength 7, AV 12 isn't that big a deal when you have 6 with 3 attacks on the charge.

      Delete
    5. The kans got needed for sure. Toy can no longer field cheap ones at 40 points. I used to love the idea of several of them with skorchas. But now they work in larger groups so it makes this set quite tempting

      Delete
    6. Also Kan Klaws are not unwieldy so they will strike at their base initiative of 2, that's not huge (and I may be missing something rules wise as I haven't used walkers in close combat for a while), but it could be useful for killing power fist/axe armed characters or swiping at other walkers before they can attack.

      Delete
    7. Walkers Ignore unwieldy anyway

      Delete
    8. @Phil
      They also went up in points.
      Its not a deal uunless you want to kill a dread or anything bigger than a rhino.

      Its a massiv nerf...like most of the dex.

      Delete
    9. Also with str7 you can Not instantdeath t5 models like spawns or bikes anymore.


      Delete
    10. Rokkit and KMB Kans are the same price, Grotzooka Kans went up by 10 points. Not that much of an increase honestly.

  9. Can't a leaked WD actually go to a person who knows how to take good photos for once? And not just leak photos of just the cover :)

  11. I don't like the "already existing kits, so rubbish" comments.

    By the same mode of thinking DV was garbage because it had tacticals in it. The tacticals were snap-fit and had DA iconography (raised shoulder-pad design etc.).

    I'm betting these SW will be the same: snap-fit with some SW icongraphy and raised shoulder-pads etc. They certainly won't be "identical" to what you can buy in other kits. When have you ever known a starter set to do that?

    Everyone's always so negative. I'm like "yay another starter set!" "more orks and SW!", but immediately people are raining on the parade with cries of "garbage!" and "shenanigans!".

    Its no wonder GW don't allow comments on their videos....

    I don't mean to fuel negativity with more negativity, and i'm sorry if i've upset anyone's day - but it does get a little old guys.

    1. i agree +1

      though this i disagree with "Its no wonder GW don't allow comments on their videos" there are many factors including this type of behaviour. although you cannot suggest one is more or less a deciding factoid. expansionism/shrinking fanbase/rising prices/modding things/unruly fan base....and so on make up the varied reasons why it isn't a great idea for open comms.

      Delete
    2. The DV sm were boaring. If anything the should have made them look like the veterans with hoooded cloths.
      Its not intressting as DA player to have more SMs when you have bikes and Termis as troops.

      At the same time vanilla players dont like the icons that they have to remove. Same goes for SWs. Its nice for SW players but most of them have SM and Termis on mass. What would be iintressting is SW dread.
      As for orks they would be more happy with mek gunz or warbuggies or bikes instead of standart ork units. Canz are nice but other things would be nicer.

      Just saying. Dont expect people with those armys to be buying the Box the most.

      Delete
    3. I really liked the DV tacticals. They have the weapon loadout I'd give them anyway (minus the plasma pistol, which I cut off) and have DA pauldrons so no stupid transfers for me! I've got 3 squads of them, very happy with them.

      Robes would've been nice but then my veterans would just look like tacticals with combi-plasmas.

      Delete
    4. The box isn't intended for existing players, seb, you maroon. It's intended to get a couple of early teen kids who haven't discovered girls or cars yet (or a way to get a girl alone in a car yet... LOL!).

      Why can't you veteran players figure this out: GW wants fresh blood, they don't care about you once they've hooked you, they've got other ways to make you part with your cash than 2-player starter sets. They need to hook Johnny and Billy before they get their drivers licenses and their voices change. Neckbeards living in their mothers' basements are going to buy whatever new/shiny comes out. If you get some cool stuff out of the 2-player STARTER set, and can either start a new SW or Ork army with the other half, or trade it to your fellow neckbeard basement dweller, that's extra revenue. But the business model calls for hooking newbies into the hobby, and hoping the either stay with it for a while and get Mommy and/or Daddy to buy them some new units, or wait until they graduate from college and get a real job and re-discover their old hobby between surfing porn and buying video games...

      LOL!!!

    5. You need to find a different hobby seb, its obviously not good for your mental well being or attitude.

      @jd: "maroon"... i love it. (",)

  12. Interesting. Im actually rather amused that it might be Wolves and Orks; always played Wolves but found Orks very interesting after playing in the Armageddon campaign. If this is a starter set, then I can knock out my desire for a mini-dex, get a couple new sculpts to use with my Wolves, and have a few Orks to play with. If a Codex is following soon with fliers and anti-air I will be VERY happy.

    1. Dont SW hate flying in fluff just like teleporting?

      Delete
    2. That's an easy ret-con:

      "But Captain Sven, we don't like teleporting!"
      "Then you'll have to get your asses into the Thunderhawks to get down to the surface, won't you, furbrain?"
      But what about the drop pods, sir?"
      "Shut yer yap and climb aboard the Thunderhawks, laddies!"

      OK, not my best stuff, but it's late and I treated myself to a 12 year old bottle of single malt Scotch since the Old Lady and chillens are out of town, so sue me! You get the idea. If GW wants SWs to get a flyer, they'll get a flyer, or they won't know jack about aircraft and won't get any anti-air ("It's not possible, so we don't have to care about it!"), or whatever, but you probably won't have to wait to long to find out...

      ...In the meantime, I'm off to the Hawk Wargames forum, where people are far more civil and friendly and helpful than you bitter 40K lot... Dropzone Commander is a freaking BLAST to play, but none of you should try it, 'cuz we don't want your rampant negativity infecting this great new game with a crisp, clear ruleset. Keep hating GW and continuing to buy their products... I'll get back into 40K in a month or two and be ready for Valhalla, but in the meantime, I've got a DzC community to build up...

      Ha!

  13. I am more leaning to these being "Strike Force" type boxes, like the Ultramarines Terminator one:
    1 Special character and standard sprues. Looking at whats rumored in the Space wolves side of things you can easily make that from a terminator box and a Space Wolves power armor box.

    I also find it really odd that they would use old SW models together with the new lord, if it was a starter set. Why not put more of the starter set models in there?
