  1. I was expecting the Elite Edition to come in around the price of Know No Fear/Tempest of Souls... even with the lower model count. Never imagined it would be nearly 25% more expensive.

    2. Not like they gave the folding board on this one.

      Guess it time to get back the money from the cheap Launch box!

    1. So for about 15% more than the price of the Recruit and Elite editions, I got a bunch of extra models, and a full rulebook...
      So glad I ended up picking up Indomitus.

    2. Indomitus was a good price, but the Elite and Recruit edition are pretty bad. The command edition is meh. It would be a great deal if it was the full rule book. I would have preffered more models over the terrain

  3. Not very good with converting to UK prices but I'm getting the impression Indomitus ended up a good choice?
    I am intrigued by whether itl end up better buying the getting started battlezone or the starter set with it included though

    1. I reckon it's £30, £60 and £100 respectively. Getting Indomitus was overall better, though I'd say if you were looking to bolster your collection, the Recruit is probably the better option. Is it worth £30 extra for 7ish more models? And is the terrain worth £40 more?

      Consider your 20-25% off at an FLGS, and it's not terrible per se...

    2. Just check the canadian price and divide it by two. So its $30, $60, and $97.5

  4. Man, Dark Imperium was an absolute steal compared to this garbage.

  5. Man these prices are rough. I know the economy isn't in a good place, but that's a hell of a price gouge. I don't like it but can't really blame them - minis have been selling like hotcakes and even at that price they'll have no problem shifting them.

    It does make the limited nature of Indomitus sting all that much more though.

  6. GW can kiss my ass. I still have only bought 5 primaris incessors and a thousand sons army in the past 5 years. I think its been 3 years since I bought anything as I can't determine what direction they are headed in. I'll buy shit when they know what they want to do.

  8. Guess they have to make up for the cheap Indominitus Launch box!

    But again, look how people purchased, my son wanted for his Birthday some new Lego Super Mario, 70$ for the starter set, expansion are between 40 to 90$, big castle is 140$ and it all backorder on Lego website (Price in CAD).

    They know it will sell, i was hoping for 175$ for the Command one, since i got screw by buying 2 times the board set, will have to sell the board.
    Also decor is sold with the board... another fail!

    That Battleset should have launch on day 1 or not selling the board right away

  9. Zero. I'll be paying Zero because I won't be buying them. I'm not really surprised they are more expensive than the last starter sets. Inflation, Brexit, pandemic, tooling costs and all the other excuses people defend GW price hikes with aside. The shear cost of them is aggravating to be sure but I'm also just not into the whole primaris thing anymore. I liked them at first and wouldn't have minded if they actually replaced old marines. But the constant, "this is halfway between two different old marine figures but with a branding twist" is just tiring me out. Assault marines without jump packs, jump pack marine gunlines, akira style bikes, preditors but they hover its just ugh to me now. I feel like the model studio is trying to design stuff that's different just to be different rather than giving a coherent feel to space marine armies. The old marine figures were over designed sometimes but at least they felt related to each other. For all people's complaining about old marines should be bigger, the primaris are still out of scale with their own vehicles and now their pistols are the size of their torso. That's fine just not why I got into space marines. I think I'm just flat out of this edition entirely.

      Exactly this. Primaris Marines dont look or feel like a military. They seem more like models from an RTS game where every unit looks different from each other but identicle in look and loadout to eachouther
