Death Koptas seem to be about the same size as the Assault on Black Reach ones. Rotars are the same length but some extra gubbins stick out.
It's a nitpick when they were completely different? One came with pushfit/easy build model variants and both a starting scenario and complete rules for the game; clearly targeted at people new to the hobby as a whole.
If the combat patrol/start collecting really were these starting points for brand new hobbyists thats being claimed, why aren't the marine ones filled with the dark imperium and easy to build kits? Why not have the easy to build plague marines in the death guard one?
Its nitpicking to start an argument based on precise word usage, doesn't matter if you're correct or whatever its still bad faith in a casual thread where no one has been told to be careful with words.
The combat patrols and start collecting boxes are inconsistant, that's all there is to it. Most of them have full kits but are for factions that don't have full kits. There are two kinds of marine combat patrols, the regular one which is mono-pose and the chapter specific ones that need to be compatable with upgrade frames so there's no standard being broken by the Ork one.
Orks have always been a beginner army so it makes sense for them to get this kit. It should just have been priced lower.
