Hi, I just saw this new from Wayland Games

Warhammer 40,000 is played by two or more players, each fielding an exquisite model army. They take turns attacking and defending, trying to gain an advantage over their opponent by moving their troops and rolling dice to determine the fate of the galaxy.

Should have mentionned the limited edition box is 10% off!

On the GW site there is actual pictures, and an audio drama to boot! Looks much better than the last box set.

Not the price though! ;)

But of course, they cant ship GW product to Australia.

Wow, those models look astonishing. I don't play 40K but I'm tempted to get a set – I suspect it might live on the shelf with my only-played-once copy of Space Hulk 3rd though….

Wargame News and Terrain Blog25 Aug 2012 3:16 a.m. PST

No shipping to Australia, it's not their fault but that of GW.

The models look great though especially the cultists!

Frothers Did It And Ran Away25 Aug 2012 3:16 a.m. PST

How come they won't post to Oz then?

Samulus25 Aug 2012 4:22 a.m. PST

These models are incredible, I'm no fan of the game but I'm seriously considering buying these. The cultists and dreadnought thing are stellar!

Wargame News and Terrain Blog25 Aug 2012 4:25 a.m. PST

They won't post it to Australia and New Zealand due to some rule of GW don't ask me why but I would guess some sort of clause in a contract and when you don't sign it you may not sell GW stuff.

laager5025 Aug 2012 6:28 a.m. PST

Anyone know the release date ?

thabear25 Aug 2012 6:48 a.m. PST

Because we already pay double for all GW product (or more ) than the rest of the world pays despite our dollar being very close to the USD. GW dont allow cheaper sources to sell to Australian customers ( and others i'm sure )because that would dent thier market here.
Years ago i bought all my GW stuf from an overseas supplier,i cant anymore and i wont pay more for it here. Since the new policy allot of Aussies have not continued thier support of GW or have not bought new product from thier stores. The set looks good but it is literally out of my considerable wargames budget.

I think it is supposed to be out the first week in September.

I think the set looks great. I can't wait until those cultists hit the resale bins too.

Can't say as I'm impressed. The local store runs 25% coupons twice monthly, and has enough LE copies on preorder allocation from GW that they should last well into the holiday season. While Zombie Planet is well above average as shops go, I imagine most places will be able to top a measly 10% break, especially if you tell the owner it's price match or lose the sale altogether.

GW Prices put me off generally and the how over the top some of the figures are in 40K do not fit that well into my future world.

However the Squad of Chaos Marine Cultists look like nice figures and could easily work as some kind of nearish future underground force.

Personal logo Dentatus Supporting Member of TMP Fezian25 Aug 2012 10:25 a.m. PST

Cultists and a Hellbrute for me please.

Gaying25 Aug 2012 12:43 p.m. PST

Will they be selling the squads of cultists and Hellbrute separately? As I dont want the Dark Angels marines.

Wargame News and Terrain Blog25 Aug 2012 2:15 p.m. PST

I guess they won't sell them seperate but they will probably pop up on ebay within several days/weeks.

Privateer4hire25 Aug 2012 5:40 p.m. PST

Stand by for Warstore's bits service to sell teh Chaos stuff separately, I'm guessing.

Wargame News and Terrain Blog27 Aug 2012 1:28 p.m. PST

Lots of them on ebay already ranging from rather cheap to way too expensive! You need be lucky or have some patience and wait for the storm to lay down.

Cheers

Just found this out form Total wargamer:

"Lurking at the fringes of imperial society are hidden organisations who have willingly thrown their lot in with the Dark Gods.The Chaos Cultists box includes five Cultists, three with autoguns and two with auto pistols and close combat weapons, to enlarge your treacherous hordes found in the Dark Vengeance boxed game.This item is on pre-order and will be dispatched on 17th November."

They seem to sell boxed sets of 5 cultists for only £5.10 GBP quite a good price hopefully they also come with some extra bits and pieces. Here's a link link

Pictures can be found here: link

Cheers
