…are two 4oK starter sets.

What sets them apart, and frankly I am disappointed that it has taken a 28mm plastics manufacturer this long to do so, is that the figures are molded in two different colours; blue for marines, and green for Nurgle.

Let's face it, there will always be some folks who do not want to paint. At least this way there would be fewer grey vs. grey armies duking it out for supremacy.

And even that, grey vs. grey, is far better than bare metal.

GW used to mold armies in different colors back in the old days – for example, Adeptus Titanicus titans came in red and black plastic. Epic Orks in the Space Marine 2nd edition starter were green while the marines were blue and the Eldar were gray.

So they were! That brings back memories. Good to see them resume the practice and I still wish historical figure manufacturers would do the same.

Actually, there wasn't much consistency in the colors to a particular faction. I have marines and eldar in both blue and green. And my warlord titans were red and dark blue.

And as a kid building models (to play with), I hated how they were almost always molded in the most inappropriate colors!
