    Anyone hear when a new box set of 40K will be released. Now that the 3rd LOTR boxed game is in stores I would think that this item would be next on their to do list.

    I am praying to the gods of all things 40K that the new set will be Space Marines vs. Tyranids and that it will feature some new artwork and updated rule book.

    any rumors floating around?

    tom :a

    I've heard about it, but I haven't heard of any new boxed set being released. If there is a new boxed set, it will probably be Daemonhunters and Chaos. The newsest and most popular armies at present. The Space Marines have had their chance and there aren't enough Nid players to include them in the Boxed set.....

    I was thinking its time for the Orks to make another showing in a boxed set, just like 2nd edition 40k, Space Marines and Orks, the classic show down.

    Without doubt, it'll be Space Marine v someone, since SM are the flagship race for Games Workshop, and there are less models for more points.
    Space Marines also have very few special rules, good if your starting out.

    It's just economics.

    That is exactly why it probably will be SM. It gets new players to start witha small, cheap force that is quite powerful (i dont want to start an argument with the collecters of other armies, i am just sayin&#39. They also get players used to special rules without overwhelming them.

    with the eye o' terror and all i expect that chaos would be involved against space marines as daemon hunters are metal and all the models are made to be plastic.

    It'll be Sms, because as it's been said they are the best beginner's army. And I think it'll be 'Nids, with 'Stealers in box. They should be easy to put together if it's going to be snap together models.
