Usually when a new codex is on the horizon, GW release a £150 or so strike force box set including a lot of new minis and the codex. Usually this is released a few weeks before the items can be bought individually. I bought the Chaos, Daemons and SM one but there doesn't seem to be one for IG.
I've been hanging off ordering the codex until such a release (I'm a glutton for new things...)
Have they scrapped that idea? Should I just order the codex?
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
They didnt do one for the Lizard men either. So I'm guessing they scrapped the idea.
It really depends on how much they're redoing. Though I am surprised there isn't one for guard. I think part of the reason is that the boxes didn't actually save you money so people didn't buy them because they didn't necessarily want all the figs in the box.

spearheads, as the boxes were known, that included all the new models and the new codex were indeed scrapped. GW was losing money on producing them since not enough were being sold to continue the idea.
IG are only getting those 2 new battleforce boxes for cadian/catachan infantry and whatever else they already have out still in stock.
man, I got some sweet deals on Spearheads on e-bay
Likewise.........I am going to miss them.
But then again........I can really see where they lose money on them.......
Have you seen the same box at your store for more than 3 months??
my store got the marine spearhead no one bought it sat there for 4 months then we had a tourny any guesses on what first prize was lol.
Jebus, i remember when the space marine spear head was released and there was a long thread full of abuse for g.w saying what a rip off it was and how everyone though it was such a waste of money ad nobody was going buy. Now people are moaning about the lack of one? How the world changes!
I AM BOOMER!
well, the OP seems to have liked them, he's probably in the minority. Most ppl didn't seem to like them but that doesn't mean there weren't some who did. I, for once actually got the 40k Daemons and SM spearheads, but just because i got pretty good deals and I only do the hobby part. So I miss them in a sense that they gave me a nice package of models, provided there was a discount on them somewhere out there
