Depending on the price, I may purchase this box set. I don’t have any Orks or Space Wolves so it’d be happy with the contents. 

 

Shame that there isn’t a dedicated Primaris melee unit. I think such a unit would make more sense to combine with Ragnar since he is only armed with a chainsword and bolt pistol

Quick maths, Blood of the Phoenix was £222.50 retail for separate kits, down to £140 for the box, a saving of 37% or thereabouts. Prophecy of the Wolf is £90.50 + £25 for Ragnar and £40 for Ghaz and Makari (guessing these!) for £155.50 retail give around £97 with the same discount, so probably £100 for the box. What do you think?

Will there even be a SW upgrade sprue in the box? doesn't look like there is anything on the infiltrators/incursors that is particularly SWesq. Although three of the models have runes on their helmets, most likely transfers but could be new upgrade sprue? (always wanting more than being offered biggrin.png )


Sometimes by losing a battle you find a way to win the war

Those runes look painted on, as they are uneven, and decal from the SW decal sheet. so I would assume no upgrade kit. So standard infiltrator kit then.

I was given wrong info when I posted about it not being a box and given the source I hope they were correct in saying zero chance of another £140 box. The talk is max price point for boxes of £100-110 but prices should be known by stores early this week.

 

The BotP box price and 'not happening again any time soon' I have heard from two different sources so hopefully this will be around £100 or it may price me out until Ghaz is released later

Great box but somehow feel the orks have a bit of an advantage in terms of power!

If Ghaz is only 40 he is really cheap for a big character as a redemptor is 40 and same sized. Guilliman is smaller at 38. I imagine he is going to be 50-60 looking at other characters in AoS (doesn't seem to be a 40k equivalent).

Hmmm. Likely around £80 at my FLGS then. Flog Ragnar off to bring that down to about £60, maybe keep the Primaris for my slow burn Ultras. Would be an easy yes except for the fact that next month is AdMech month...

Excited to see what the book brings though! Haven’t bought a PA yet but might end up with this AND Engine War.

Pretty peeved that Orks finally get the new model for our 'Primarch' and he's not even on the cover of the dang book. Oh and a space marine captain solo'd him.

The price is big I am getting a limited edition saga of the beast for the stories and really only want Ragnar. Though the idea of putting that fat Orcs head in his hand make me want the whole box

The price composition from my calculations in USD is 60/40 Orks to SW. I'd assume it's somewhere around Wrath and Rapture or Shadowspear price wise.

If Ghaz is more than $60, or Roboute Guilliman's price, then Orks become more than 60% of the price composition of the box.

I think it couldn't go over shadowspear, which was $170 USD. There has to be some incentive for SW players to get it. If it's $200 or more in USD, then it is no discount at all for them and there's no incentive to purchase it. Even if imbalanced in composition, I would think they need to still have perceived value for the SW side.

Didn't solo this..ahem...upgrade.

Which explains why his rules basically eat smash captains alive.

Ghaz alone is probably half the box value, if not more. A character model of that size will be expensive.

I think based on what i believe the costs to be of the bits inside - 60 Orks :40 Wolves?
 

Ragnar £25

Primaris Infiltrators £35

 

Meganobz £38

Ork Nobz £17.50

Ghaz £37.50

 

Based Ghaz on Abbadon and Guillimans cost, Ragnar on Shrike.

That's like £40 rather than £37.50 so could be right would make it more like 61.2%

I think Ghaz will be more like Redemptor price than Guilliman.

 
£40 vs £37.50 is not a big difference. The bottom line is that 60:40 is a reasonable price split for the box based on the RRP of the units inside. And if you can't find a buddy to agree then eBay will likely be full of box splitters.
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.
