inlocal store i was told about the new battleforce for both catachan and cadians will have the same items in
comand sqaud, 20 gaurds, hevay teams and sentinal
they say it will sell more than the last boxs as players dont want loadsof lr id do what do you guys think
They make a good point, but they should it optional like have one with a sentinel and one with a leman russ
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
I think a chimera would have been a better option
If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
its a good start point i guess you get a full platoon with the command sqd and 20men, plus you get some heavy weapons, then all you need is one of the 10man boxes as veterans (if the vets as troops is true) and bang, got yourself an army!
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

They're doing it becuase sentinels are cheaper than leman russes so they save money by not putting them into a battleforce. Either way, I wouldnt mind having more than 2 dozen leman russes lol.
they are not saving that much
20 gaurds 20 gaurd
5 man comand lr
heavy weapons teams heavy weapons teams
butthey are trying to get us buying the comand box for every platoon and useing theolder comandas army hq
I agree with friday, 20 guard, a command squad, 3 heavy weapns teams, and a chimera would be the best combo for the battle force.
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
2x 10 guard box = $90
3x Heavy weapons = $65-$75
Command squad = $45
Sentinel = $45
total = $245-$255, usual price $180-$190 for a battleforce
That is using the new pricing. Swapping a russ or chimera for the sentinel would raise the value by $20-$30, which GW would not be keen to do. You would lose your command squad and end up with the existing battleforce. At least this way you get more than you did. Of course if you account for the fact that essentially the new guard box is a rip-off then you only really get a free heavy squad out of the deal. Oh well.

Depends entirely on how they plan to configure the new HQ's....the current HQ's (So/medic/metla/mastervox/wounded/standard) I think sucks at $40, if the rumors of having Stormtroopers as your standard HQ guard then a $40 tag is maybe worth it if you can get a full 10 of em.
However with the big picture of HQ + HVY + 2 SQD + 2 Sentinels I think it's a bad buy unless they include the bits to make those nice heavy support sentinels (which I doubt).
I'd much rather have a spiffy tank that maybe justifies a little under half the cost of the box then 2 sentinels....(which have about the same cost but are much easier to kill).
My opinion on them removing the LRBT is that since they are makig them better they want people to pay the full price for them now instead of getting packaged deals.
25 man IG infantry box = $30-$35
Heavy Weapon Team box (with 3 teams) = $20-$25
Cadian HQ = $40
Sentinel = $20 (standard) $30 (all acc sprues+metal bits)
