Well, once again I have seen something on Bell Of Lost Souls that is not on here yet. I guess I really should be writing my dissertation as opposed to checking blogs! However, this was too interesting not to post:So there you have it, apparently straight from the horses mouth. I'm still surprised that the rulebook will be out in July, given the complete lack of build up. But with this mounting stream of rumors (though they are still just that - rumors), I'm starting to believe. As much as I'd rather not.~Passing this news on in its unaltered form:According to Games Workshop USA Sales Representative Mark Koscielniak, the new Warhammer 40k 5th Edition Starter Boxed Set will include a “Crap-Ton of miniatures”.
The new boxed starter, due out in September of this year, will include the popular “mini-rulebook”, dice, measuring sticks and the proverbial French “Crap-Ton” of miniatures including:
1– Space Marine Commander (full sprue)
1– Space Marine Tactical Squad
1– Space Marine Terminator Squad
1– Space Marine Dreadnought
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
The set will ALSO include:
1– Ork Warboss
2– Ork Boyz Mobs
1– Ork Nob Mob
3– Death Koptas
The retail price on this tremendous deal will be a ridiculously low $59.99! A quick analysis of the retail value of this set is valued at a cool $262 bucks, and that’s not even counting the retail value of the 3 Death Koptas, the “mini-rulebook”, or the dice!
The new 5th Edition starter will be called “Battle for Black Reach”.
The regular hard cover 5th Edition rulebook is due out in July, with a retail price of $49.99.
Even with this great value, Games Workshop Inc. has instructed their retailers to warn consumers that in order to off-set this incredible value,GW is forced to break the promise of not raising any prices for 5 full years. As a result, all of the GW starters (40k, Fantasy and Lord of the Rings) will now be sold at $59.99, rather than the former $49.99.
Even so, the values of these starters are astounding, as entire armies can be built for the cost of a couple of starters.
Be sure to place your pre-orders early so that you don’t miss out on this incredible deal!
I'm also rather annoyed I have no use for either Marines or Orks, given those prices!
Wow that is pretty darn cheap, Im guessing in UK itll be 40 quid for quite a lot of stuff.
Then again we dont know how good quality the miniatures will be. Also the "Battle for Black Reach" is a pretty rubbish name. What is a reach?
If I played Space Marines or Orks, or 40k for that matter I would definitely pick this up.

Vassal Record 1-2.
*Has an image that the deth koptas and the dreadnought will be card cut outs like in 2nd Ed*
That does seem like a really good deal. But I guess I'll believe when I see it advertised good and proper.

Oh joy, giggles, and lollipops. Another price raise? Well, at least they offer an excuse this time. That's right, it's so totally not business greed that's driving up the price, it's this amazing deal's fault.
I'm getting this sudden divine prophecy... I predict... I predict the usage of Space Marines will continue to rise, Ebay will be flooded with Ork models, and sales of the other starter sets will drop.
IIRC ive had that list of stuff confirmed by the manager of my local GW. I think thats pretty much what he said, although i dont remember the Koptas being mentioned by him, just lots of Boyz.
All those models, and the mini rulebook + extra bits, all for £50! quite impressive by GW standards...
Im sorry, i am one of the few who refuse to belive it untill there is some Offical evidence, of that we have sean nothing, just rumours!
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
wow. Perfect considering the fact that i'm starting orks, and I can use the SMs for practice. If this is true, Than this means ork players get... PLASTIC NOBZ AND WARBOSS! woohoo! can't wait for september...
How dare you speak out against LO! I shall beat you with a giant inflatable duck and then ban you to the lowest level of hell! ~Karmoon
