    Preorder now!

    The time is nigh! Check the advanced order section for all the July 12th releases:

    Games Workshop

    In particular I like what they did with the army sets. Although I can't help but notice that the "complete" Tau army does not have an HQ. Does this mean in 5th you don't have to have an HQ in a 1500 point army?

    No fair, the Tau one is at least $100 more expensive than the rest! That army isn't the greatest either. Maybe the tau commander can be a firewarrior or stealthsuit in 5th Ed.

    modeled on a space marine scope, typical!

    The nid one is the cheapest. I wonder if I can order from the US site if I live in Canada... I'm sure it'll be at least $70 more expensive here, even though our dollar is on par with the US....

    And the nid one is a great deal, at least in the US. 2 battleforces and an extra fex for the price of 2 US battle forces? Looka pretty nice to me.

    All of the battleboxes are the actual cost of the models at 20% off. None of them are a better deal than the others.

    Some of the boxes have different savings. I think it said the Tau one was 25% off, and one of the SM ones is only 19% off. I think they chose the forces, took off 20%, and then rounded the price to the closest "standard" price that they sell with (or rounded it to the nearest 10).

    You are absolutely right; I stand corrected.

    Good find! As for the Tau set, the description for it actually says it "contains around 1500 points" rather then it's a complete army. I wonder why they did it that way, maybe to keep the cost down?

    I actually addressed the issue on the BOLS site and got a response from Dave Taylor:
    Hi johnpublic

    No changes to army composition, just an over-zealous copy writer. Sorry for the confusion.

    Shorty afterwards they changed the wording on the site.
