New 9th Edition 40k Starter Set Prices Found


These are most likely the prices for the upcoming (not yet announced) starter set for 9th Edition Warhammer 40k. All it is the value of the upcoming prizes for "Sign Up and Win" event from Games Workshop.

Check it out.


Of course by now we are all assuming the 9th Edition starter set will be Necrons vs Space Marines.

So looking below the most likely cost of the new starter set will be £120 which equates to most likely $150 USD

Here is the Terms and Conditions for the contest.

  1. That would mean a 26% UK/34% Australian increase in starter set prices...

    Surely the prize is more than just the starter set.

    1. Hopefully it means there are more models (doubt) but yeah...that sucks.

    2. There are some bigger models than in some boxes, but based on what I've seen, everything should fit on no more thant 8 vehicle size sprues... with 2 duplicate sprues for each faction, which is pretty normal.

  2. That makes Sense? I mean yeah, it's more than the old one if true but the Dark Imperium box had:
    1 Captain
    2 Lieutenants
    1 Ancient
    10 Intercessors
    5 Hellblasters
    3 Inceptors

    The new Box will have:
    1 Captain
    1 Lieutenant
    1 Ancient
    1 Chaplain
    1 Judicar Dude (the guy with the sword)
    10 Assault Intercessors
    3 Heavy Weapon Primaris
    3 Bladeguard Veterans
    3 Outrider Bikes

    So I feel like this is actually more bang for your buck than the Dark Imperium box. It has more models, 1 additional character and bigger Models like the bikes. So yeah, not completely unreasonably.

    1. To be fair, we dont know yet if all those models will be in the starter set. I wouldnt be surprised to see some normal intercessors in there as that is a pretty melee heavy starter set army for marines

  3. "new starter set will be £120 which equates to most likely $150 USD"

    No. It doesn't.

    See, you're using the very incorrect method of using the current exchange rate. You forget that Games Workshop employs a "foreign country tax" basically. Don't like in the UK? Get ready to pay extra.

    There's a set they currently sell for £120. Is it $150? Heck no! It's $200. An extra 33% on top of what you're expecting.

    See here:

    https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Skaven-Corrupting-War-Swarm-2019

    The "Baleful Realmgate and Ophidian Archway Collection" is $150 US... but £92.50. Warhammer Quest is similarly $150 US, but it's not available on the UK site to check prices.

    So basically, if it's £120, don't expect a reasonable $150 US based on exchange rates. Expect $200 based on GW's "US tax." Which isn't quite as obnoxious as their "Oz tax," but bad enough.

    1. Yeah this is closer to correct.

    2. Keep in mind that GW isn't the only company to do that, FFG does it the other way around, an import tax (which isn't that strange btw) for games of theirs in Europe. The locally translated versions are often cheaper then the English imports... Just about every company located on a different continent does this. BUT... GW even does this with countries just across the channel, although no longer as badly as in the past.

      Comparing collections often isn't accurate, but currently they don't have a retail product at 120GBP that I could find. The new Necromunda 'starter' is 175GBP and $290 in US. $200 does sound correct.

    3. Buying stuff in the UK and having it sent to a friend who then ships it to you is cheaper than buying in the US, even after accounting for the extra shipping costs. UK stores are even allowed to give a greater percentage off than US stores, and the real money prices are already far lower.

  4. I will use the price tag of Vanguard Start Collecting

    UK = 60
    US = 95
    CAD = 115

    Price as per rumor due to contest (took start collecting price x2)

    UK = 120
    US = 190
    CAD = 230

    1. Yeah they will probably round it up to $200...

  5. If it has mostly new marine units, I'd probably bite for 200$, but that seems like a lot for a starter. I thought DI was a bit much, but the full rulebook tipped it for me. Have to think anything over 150 is going to drive off more than a few new gamers/parents. There are more wargame options now than ever, including other GW games. They should really try to get the starter set in as low as possible if the aim is to grow the base.
