  1. The real value only comes from boxed kits anyway, so apart from new terrain box and Tau, nothing is new.

    1. Savings is like 2$ all around lol

    2. Eldar Wraith Host - $330.50
      Cost of individual models - $330.50

      Space Marine 1st Company Task Force - $330
      Cost of individual models - $330

      And I became disheartened and gave up at that point. What I find odd is they RANDOMLY give a boxed set a discount. Is a $2 discount just random? A 5+ on a D6?

    3. The difference is that some are boxes that are available on all their retail channels (the Mechanicus and Space Marine boxes) that have dedicated packaging, and some are "one-click Bundles that are just available from the GW website, those are basically just "click to buy this formation quickly" offers. I think its silly not to offer any discount but it isn't random, as long as you know to look for the boxed deals (they show the bundle packaging in the web store art when its a bundle) you're not going to see the no-discount nonsense.

      Delete
    4. Agreed, the Boxed Sets usually have a worthwhile discount on them. The Firebase Support Cadre available on the GW site now as a One-Click Bundle for £230 (no discount) was available as christmas box-set 2 years ago for about £190, and it was available through third party retailers at a discount as well (I picked one up for about £130). So yes, the online bundles are pointless, the boxed bundles are not.

  2. This is the same info that you'll find in the GW 2015 gift guide booklet. Free in GW stores...you have to spend +£100 for the hessian gift sack (either 40k or AoS one).

  3. Wait a second... Chaos bundle costs 209 pounds.
    Abba - 15. Terminators - 28 х2. Possessed - 20.50, land raider - 46. Forgefiend 41
    total: 87 + 20.50 + 56 + 15 = 102 + 76.5 = 178.5
    209. 178.5.
    What the actual fuck?

    1. Yeah its only $233 US but somehow the package deal is $367? Methinks maybe terminators or the landraider are about to go up in price...again...

    2. Hmm looking at the pictures, only terrain, mechanicum and space marine 1st, plus the old boxes have boxes. I always look if they have a box presented, if not then its web bundle which is more expensive or the same price.

      Your prices are super off, yo.

      Terms are 50
      Armless is 22.25
      Possessed are 33
      Forgefiend is 68
      Land Raider is 76,

      Totalling to 299.25 usd

      Where does the extra 68 usd come from O.o

      Delete
    8. O.o apparently my computer decided to go to GW in Canadian dollars today (despite never once going to the site as a Canadian before...). I thought some of those prices seemed way higher than I remembered. Either way... If even Canadian dollars makes this thing a bad deal then it's really a bad deal!

      Delete
    9. Given how close my total came in Canadian dollars... I wonder if the person who posted this rumor was using Canadian dollar prices and not USD. Because all of the listed prices are very close to what they would cost to someone in Canada. But not close at all to USD.

      Delete
    10. Finding new ways to shaft chaos players appears to be a sport for GW. A terrible codex, out dated models, monstrous creatures with tank rules, and substandard representation aren't enough. We need to pay a sizable percentage more than the actual price for the privilege of buying a bundle for our faction, even though it is basically unusable.

      Delete
    11. We sisters of battle players feal for your troubles. But we don't even get a bundle. Lol.

      Delete
    12. I fully believe that GW could not have done a worse job with Chaos Space Marines. I get the impression they don't know where to go with them, and/or they don't like the background etc. but they're stuck because they have developed themselves into a corner.

      Delete
    13. The thing about CSM is that they were supposed to be beaten during the 13th Black Crusade event, thus preserving the status quo.

      However, they whooped all the Imperial asses in the official tournaments, leading to a complete Chaos victory. Which was properly retconned to a small Chaos victory that only led to landing a few dude on Cadia.

      This is really the big problem with Chaos, that they can't win, else it'll flip the tables and we'd get an End Times scenario that goes "Chaos rocks fall, total party wipe."

      Delete
    14. Well... that is their stated goal and all!

      Delete
    15. The "GW is victimizing Chaos players" meme is getting tired. Its been 3 years, and we even got 2 supplements and a splash release of the dreadnought along the way, not to mention the Lord of Skulls. And that doesn't consider the awesomeness that is IA 13. And Daemonkin, which is great. Armies regularly went 5-10 years between codexes for most of the time GW has been publishing. We'll get a book. Its not going to be that long. Don't interpret corporate decisions as some kind of personal affront.

      Delete
    16. @ Ian

      While its true that the company probably isn't saying "Fuck these chaos players in particular.", they do seem to be not giving Chaos any love in 40k.

      You bring up the supplements as part of proof that we are getting love. Unfortionatly, the Black Legion book never sees use, and the Crimson Slaughter book doesn't represent any chaos legion that the players really care about.

      The Dreadnaught release was nice, but again, they made the rules for them so poor that people dont' field them. On that note of "people dont' field them", I will counter the lord of skulls part too. It is a Khorne only unit, and a Lord of War on top of that. Many chaos players play a legion, and I for one, as a Death Guard / Alpha Legion player, cannot use a Lord of
      Skulls and still stay true to my legion. So, it becomes even more difficult to field.

      IA 13 is cool, but thats not considered a GW thing even though its forgeworld. Daemonkin is awesome, yes, but once again, Khorne only.

      And in general, the standard Chaos Marines book does suck. Its filled with bland units and a huge lack of abilities/war gear. 2 out of the 6 artifacts can only be used by lords with a specific mark, and one of them (the Tzeenetch one) sucks massively. We have cult marines, but where are the cult terminators, or lords, or raptors, or ... anything else?

      A Death Guard terminator, marked Nurgle, doesn't have Feel No Pain, but an Iron Hands terminator does? An Alpha Legion army doesn't have any special rules, but a Raven Guard army does? Chaos has gotten the short end of the stick when compared to their less trained, shorter lived, and loyalist brothers.

      Delete
    17. Yeah, but other than the LoS Nurgle players can kitbash a plague reaper though, but for all gods, there are chaos Knights. You can easily kitbash one from the plastic kit and their rules are free. And hey, the Kytan is actually cheaper than a LoS from FW and a seriously great unit.

      IA 13 is very much park of CSM and therefore definitely counts, especially because some of the best units for CSM (Hell Blades, Dread Claws, Sonic Dreadnoughts, Blight Drones, Plague Hulks, Spartans, Fire Raptors, Sicaran, etc) are contained within, not to mention an insane, customizable lost and the damned army list that can easily be built out of cultists and cadians kitbashed together (not to mention the awesomeness of renegade scions using the bloody handed reaver). Its like a one stop shop for everything awesome about CSM in one place.

      We will get an updated book eventually, but complaining about it after 3 years just seems silly, we played with the 4th ed book for almost 5 years and it was more bland and lesser than SM than this book ever was.

      Delete
    18. Complaining isn't silly when half a dozen books have been updated twice since...

      GW has shifted their methodology and I don't think we'll see 6+ year gaps between codices anymore.

      And to counter IA13 and co. a lot of people don't allow forgeworld in games. So being given an unofficial Knight (and not even the best ones at that, only the 2 basic knights) is sorta moot.

      Delete
    19. People who don't allow FW aren't really playing 40K, they're playing a silly house ruled gimped version of the game. Complaining about lack of options when options exist is silly.

      Knights aren't unofficial at all, FW published their full rules. Experimental rules just means they aren't published in a book yet, email FW, they will tell you the same.

      And again, it's been 3 years with consistent new content over most of that time. The complaining just makes the chaos community seem pathetic. I'm not going to complain when we have plenty of options. CSM are not entitled to the next book just by virtue of having the oldest one.

      Delete
    20. 13th Black Crusade didn't end in complete Chaos victory. Chaos did win the 40k tabletop, but handily lost the Battlefleet Gothic campaign. The result was victorious, isolated Chaos land forces with no fleet support, no supplies and nowhere to go. And yes, rightly or wrongly GW retconned it out of existence.

      Delete
    21. @ Ian remember when BA/DA/Necrons/Tyranids etc etc didn't get any "love" yeah that is chaos. now imagine if chaos got all the best stuff and it was all chaos instead.....i'd imagine the players would be pretty pissed off at that. according to you however we should all just enjoy what we have. will you say the same when another space marine dex is re-released before chaos (yet again)?

      Delete
    22. @ Ian also would you play a game where the other guy has 5 IK/WK? if not i think you need to re-evaluate your opinion. you think people playing it wrong then go play and be that F Guy. no one here will stop you. just don't expect many gamers to want to play you.

      Delete
    23. What are you even talking about? BA and Nid players both complained through their two most recent codexes and still complain. In case you've missed my point, I am a CSM player and am still rather happy with the book. The Renegades and Hererics list alone makes half a dozen different armies and that isn't even considering the different God choices.

      Playing against 5 Knights or WK requires a specialized list. You should talk it over with your gaming opponents, you might find a little coordination makes the game work better.

      Delete
    24. @ Ian
      A point about Lord of Skulls is not a good example - it was one of the first Super-heavies, and it is horrifically overcosted for what it does. You could point out that thanks to it's Daemon rule, it could be buffed to 2++ and roll around under invisibility, but what kind of player would like to play against you after that?

      Stating that Khorne Daemonkin is a good book is probably an overstatement, since there were only price increases for all units across the codex.
      Whereas SMs get tactics for free, we have to pay for marks on each single unit. We have to pay for being fluffy. Troops can not be taken as cheaply as possible, 5 models, to use some strong units like Soul Grinder, they have to be taken in 8s for ridiculous points.
      It would not be an issue if all other codices didn't get price cuts all around.
      Daemonkin also came out between Necrons and Eldar, which makes it's low power level especially visible.
      What should also be noted is huge taxes on pretty much any formations you want to field in the army.
      Core pays 150 for possessed that hardly be useful without specialised army list and big points investment.
      Terminators have to take 2 squads of bloodcrushers.
      Heldrake has to take a squad of Warp Talons.
      Bikers formation is great, but there are no plastic Hounds (I know about other shops, but we're talking GW here).
      Daemons formation is simply huge.

      Delete
    25. I don't think you're getting my point, it doesn't matter whether the LoS has good rules, we've gotten a steady trickle of chaos content since the book came out, as well as the eventuality of the next codex, which will still likely beat the last codex turnover by more than a year. GW has never released books based on what was oldest, people just need to drop the bad, entitled attitude, getting a CSM book after 4 years is a damn short turnover and the model support that comes with the codex release will likely address at least some of the most common complaints.

      Delete
    26. @ Ian

      To say "It doesn't matter whether the LoS has good rules..." is pretty much why we are complaining. We want better rules to better represent our armies. We don't want a bastardized version of everyone else's army.

      When compared to all the other books, we are blatently under powered and over priced. We lack actual customization and representation of legions.

      You also brought up the kyton walker, which, just like the LoS, is a Khorne only unit. We dont need more Khorne units, we need more everything.

      Why can't chosen have jump jets like the Vanguard have? Where are my specialist ammo like the Sternguard have? Why are loyalists better at doing the things that the chaos legions should be good at, if not better at? Where are my TH/SS terminators?

      Everyone has a newer codex then us, most of them twice. I love my chaos marines, I love their lore and I love the legions. As much as I enjoy playing traitor guard, it doesn't have the same feel as marines. I want to play Space Marines who have turned their backs on the Imperium and sided with the dark gods, the ones who have survived for 10,000 years on skill and power, the ones who can butcher worlds.

      Delete
    27. @ Ian you missed my point. however Slite above my comment here eloquently explained better than i could ever hope to.

      however i will add: needing something and being allowed to use something and not being allowed to use something all fit into the same attitude you have: you a playing it wrong. who decides what is right or wrong......you or your opponent....both are likely to have differing opinions.

      Delete
    28. lol Ian. I have IA 13, its super cool but not all that great if you are into winning games vs. anyone but Orks and BA. And the rest of your examples? LoS, Helbrutes, and 2 garbage tier supplements? I have all of it. It all sucks. Compare it to stuff theyve given the other armies and perhaps you'll see why people are pissed.
      Its not like any of the bitching is unwarranted. CSM have been treated like absolute shit. Is our money not as valuable as Tau players?
      Idrgaf what they do with CSM to be honest. Ive switched to HH and Id just as soon take a piss on the next CSM codex as I would read it. But arguing that CSM fans should chill out is silly. Theyve been left out in the cold. Anything short of absurd power creeping bullshit tier game breaking buffs and formations will be sn insult. But lets be real, CSM will get Blood Angel'd, everyone knows it.

      Delete
    29. Assuming that all the model kits in the bundle are the same as what we have now?

      Tzeentch is beinga bit showy of late...products may change...?

      Delete
    30. CSM book is a absolete book and yes... only with the IA13 can do anything.. ..but...look the basic codex... it's aberrant!! only 3-4 units are played.. there must be some reason, no?
      Not all the people plays with FW... and in Spain FW it's considerated one level up and you almost have to apologize to play it.. The CSM players need one actual codex, with formations and with posibilities to play something diferent.. it's boring... and it's amaizing the gap that exists..

      Delete
    31. When I hear "garbage tier" or "the rules suck" all I hear is whining. Get. Over. It. The book will be updated when its updated, you sound pathetic. And if you seriously don't think chaos Fire Raptors, Sonic Dreadnoughts, chaos sicarans, Hell Blades, Dreadclaws, Renegade wyvern and thudd guns, spartans, and all the other great units that stand out in IA 13 are any good, I think you may be the problem.

      Again, players who refuse to play with the options available to them shouldn't complain about options or not getting releases.

      Chaos is currently owed absolutely nothing. And when our new book comes out, I fully expect the pitty party to keep rolling and every post to still have pathetic lamentations from whiny chaos players, because it seems like almost every chaos player online has developed a victim mentality. The complaints will be valid if the book doesn't get updated for another 3 years, but we all know that won't happen.

      Delete
    32. I do not know which army play but you should use empathy.
      I would like to see in tournaments where no longer play IA13 or FW :) and have to face a Necron list with your Chaos Space Marines of the 6th. you know? not all sites FW is "legal". This is happening my friend.

      I do not say they are rubbish, but needs updating formations etc (like it or not). and yes it's a older basic dex

      You imagine what would happen if I did the same with the normal marines? ahh no!!! of course that's impossible ..

      Sorry for my english

      Delete
    33. I play CSM and Daemons.

      And again, don't play with people who don't get that FW is legal and you won't have that problem.

      Tournament results are not relevant to anything, most tournaments play an alternative ruleset to 40k, if they cared about making CSM better they could FAQ or Errata the CSM rules if they wanted, most of them are already making extensive rules changes (such as not allowing FW, or nerfing invisibility, etc etc). More importantly 40k is not trying to be a balanced rule set, someone is always on the bottom of the heap, those players just need to deal with it. Its a game. Its not balanced, its not going to be balanced. None of that excuses the bad attitude we see.

      Delete
    34. "Don't play with people who say forgeworld isn't legal."

      Oh ok, lemme just drop everything and move to another city then! Great plan. For someone who calls other childish, you seem to have put as much thought into your solutions as a child.

      Most people are upset, because they have a few (maybe even multiple) hundreds of dollars worth of plastic miniatures sitting on a shelf, since many units are just unusable.

      BUT I GUESS WE CAN JUST GO BUY NEW MODELS AND NOT LOSE EVERY GAME ANYMORE! FANTASTIC!
      Nevermind the fact Forgeworld is stupidly expensive, even by GW standards...

      Delete
    35. Please, if your chaos army is actually so bad that you can't use it then talk to the people you are playing with about forge world. Your city isn't a monolithic faceless entity, your opponents are people and a simple "hey can I bring my plague hulk" should suffice most of the time.

      Unusable doesn't mean anything. I've got multiples of every unit in the CSM codex and I use all of them except forge fiends. The fact that people won't play with models is on them. Whining about rules is silly. My mutilators have bagged me plenty of models from opponents that laughed at them. Maybe try new missions or make up scenarios with specific force compositions, it's a game, it's not important that the rules be fair, what matters is the attitude of the people playing.

      Delete
    36. @ Ian: READ ME: FW is not accepted everywhere. your insistence on inclusiveness of FW is pathetic.

      Delete
    37. Anyone who won't play against FW models is an asshole, have a conversation without assuming and you'd be surprised how many people accept that FW is part of 40K and without it, you aren't actually playing 40K

      Delete
    38. technically true. however calling people ad hominem stuff only weakens your own argument/opinion's validity somewhat.....i'm told this often here and elsewhere.

      Delete
    39. We get it Ian. You're a stone cold badass that isnt affected by CSM's shittiness, and anyone that complains about CSM isnt a real man.
      Just a heads up though, a Fire Raptor or a Sicaran doesnt suddenly make you competitive vs Tau, Eldar, WarConvo, Necrons, Demi-Company, etc. Not to mention you can only take one unit with the Relic rule.
      CSM are garbage tier. Im glad you play in a weak ass meta full of fluffy players. But not everyone does.

      Delete
    40. "Competitive" and "meta" are such stupid concepts. GW doesn't try to balance 40K, the game is always going to have weaker tier books, I'm saying complaining about it is silly and taking it personally like GW is even aware of let alone cares about what is "competitive" is a waste of time.

      And seriously, all it takes is a little coordination to have a "fair" match. If you talk over your mission or army list before hand it's really not that hard to make the match fair (but taking a point from infinity fair doesn't have to mean even, attacker/defender scenarios and imbalance make the game more interesting, or there's always the randomized mess that is maestrom.

      Delete
    41. Oh and the relic limit doesn't apply if you take a technomancer

      Delete
    42. Personally, hope they take their time and make it a big release. It's be great. Maybe that's what they're doing.

    43. @ Ian: what do GW care about people NOT buying their products.....i mean their shareholders and investors would care but why would GW.....when rules are bad miniatures aren't bought. but hey since you are fine with current rules i suppose you'll be that one guy who continues to buy chaos stuff no matter how garbage it is......yeah i was that guy with whfb.......let me tell you that it's not sustainable for either GW to not update the power level for it's bad guy faction (the one that matters) or for their share holders/investors.....but hey it's not our (consumer/player) fault if GW falls yet further away from positive growth......and further into negative growth (in this context i mean shrink instead of expand and prob got wrong words)

    2. I will not spend my emotional energy in hoping that.
      Other d.e. box released last year wasn't linked to any formation.

      But, if you want to complain about CSM I could join the tear-train talking about DE. The low tier nerfed de, fighting with csm for the last place in the codices-list. Regular de have not a single TRUE formation with any advantage, Covens "decurion" is an insult, if you consider that his minimum cost is over 2000, BEFORE buying weapons, wargears and transports.

      Despite that, I'm going to play DE+ CSM as allied and I am willing to win some games. I have almost reached a tie (for just one point) in the first game against a skyhammer + drop centurions list.
      Losing is the only way to become a better player (than the list)

    1. think these are more of a ploy for mom and dad.

      also, my local flgs says they have many people who basically only buy their armies this way....

    2. Makes me wonder who said people are. Those who are mathematically challenged perhaps?

    4. ^That cracks me up! *Sees prices, Smacks kid (I visualise around ears/back of head)* then goes full angry marine "THEN YOU BUY IT WHEN YOU GET YOUR FIRST JOB AT MACCA'S!" *storms off down street dragging crying child in tow muttering under breath about kids these days not appreciating the value of money*

      I've been there before.

  13. Either prices are going up, or there is an embarrassing disconnect in the office. I cant imagine these bundles are huge sellers anyway. Typically retailers offers DISCOUNTS for spending large sums, not penalties. Pretty funny though.

    1. Only the strangest company in the known universe would do this. GW is the sneering, scaly green hunch back imp of the business world.

  15. Goddamn it, why does every Dark Eldar bundle have Wyches? Is it because nobody's buying them so they're trying to make less knowledgeable newbies buy them?

    They are literally one of the worst units in the game, if not the very worst. They make Pyrovores look semi-usable.

    3. They're like so much in our codex: AWESOME models and garbage rules =(

    4. Every GW bundle has one or more less effective units. They're just trying to move the less popular stock.

    5. ^ landy's in chaos armies for example. no one really uses them and if they do they are in the minority. which brings me to another point: how come chaos doesn't have different patterns of landy's .......would make sense if they had at the very least another pattern (or two)

      Delete
    6. Twin-Linked blastmasters and Reaper autocannons on landy's would be nice and perhaps combi-sonics on rhino's? How about a crusader with Hurricane sonics? :-)

    7. It is kinda funny that chaos has managed to come up with the defiler, forgefiend, maulerfiend, heldrake, obliterators, mutilators, warp talons, decimator etc but in ten thousand years no bright spark ever had the idea of bolting some different guns on a pre existing chassis to improve its usefulness.

      *from cover two chaos marines watch a razorback trundle across the field spitting death from its twin-linked lascannon, it drives past the wreck of a helbrute with a blown open sarcophagus but weapon arms intact, the twin linked lascannon dangling uselessly from the pilotless machine. They watch the razorback drive up to the crest of a ridge to gain a fire arc on one of their rhino transports advancing into the battle, the razorback lights up the rhino in a series of devastating flashes as the combi-bolter returns fire but falls pathetically short of the mark. BOOM! the rhino explodes in a cloud of debris and shrapnel. The chaos marines look on in anger as the razorback shoots at another rhino father off and they watch helplessly as the first shots blow a track off leaving the second rhino a sitting duck. One Chaos marine looks at the other and says "I've had an idea"
      "Yeah, What?"
      "Well you see that gun hanging from the helbrute over there?"
      "Yeah."
      "Well, we could take it off and put it to good use."
      Oh yeah I see where you're going with this."
      "Exactly, it's a great bludgeon to bash open the hatch on that annoying loyalist vehicle that keeps killing all our rhinos, then we can bash the slaves of the corpse-emperor with it too!"
      "Good plan champ, these loyalist scum will never know what hit 'em"
      "Precisely!"

    8. as long as Chaos has a steady supply of duct tape all should be fine. :P
