I have been pondering whether to buy the US$80 WHFB starter set with Empire and Orcs this July with the possibility of getting the new manual in September.
I like the look of Empire better than most of the other armies, but could practice painting the Orcs (or sell them on Ebay).
Anybody know a.) what the new starter set will cost and what will be in it? b.) what is in the starter set? GW website only says "two armies", but I can see two types of troops, chariot, generals and cannon and such for each army.
Thanks in advance.
Even though this thread is quite old, it seems like no one has answered your question.
Nevertheless, the new box set will contain two armies. Sadly, Empire is not one of them. It features a small warband of Dwarfs and a larger force of Night Goblins. It also contains a pocket handbook with dice and rulers. The Dwarfs, from what I've seen contains some miners, warriors and a cannon/organ gun. The goblins contain around 40 night goblins armed with spears/hand weapons with shields and another 20 with bows. It also contains a troll and some more 'spider riders'. The going price will be at $45 USD.

there is one of every army on the website, but different prices.
Always night goblins vs . . .
I think that you should wait for the new starter set since Dwarfs are similar to Empire and you get all of the starter things - rulers, rulebook, templates, scenery.
You will have two 500pt armies to start with and you could always buy an Empire army later - the new starter set saves you an awful lot of money.

Thanks for the replies. I missed the sale - mainly because logic kicked in and I have two young children at home (2y and 3months) and I have no time to paint!
I'll be looking into it when we are all sleeping through the night.
