Wow, this is a two player starter set, that saves you a lot of money. I am sitting here shocked at the price of the starter, thinking there must be a typo. £60.00 for two starter armies, a rulebook, some starter terrain, dice, reference sheets, dice, templates.......... I don't get it. But you should.
This is really nuts. A starter army is £68.00 and includes the same models for just one force. One thing interesting, is that they are plastic models. Perhaps that is where the Hawk Wargames was able to create a product that was this affordable. Either way. This is cool.
I am all in wonder at just how detailed these mini's can be at this price. Plastic, and yet less expensive than a single starter set, and yet you get two + rulebook.
This set is simply made to introduce you into the game in an extremely affordable way.
