No TPD. I could actually see myself go for 3 of those.

Not a fan of kataphrons so that box isn't for me... at least it's not Electro priests though.

This. There are a lot of wonky units that don't match everyone's taste - but in this case they stick to bread-and-butter units that everyone needs. For someone starting the army, this is a really good selection. For me not that interesting, since I already got more of those units than I could possibly use (or in case of skitarii, paint).

I would have wanted Electro Priests and some Sydonian walkers so it's pretty much the opposite of what they provided.

So it's basically the original Start Collecting set plus Kataphrons for the price of the original Start Collecting set plus Kataphrons.

Put me down for a "meh" on that one.

My 3 dune crawlers are perfectly sad to continue their existence as a 1 choice instead og 1-3 unit. :(

I wish the had given us a pure Cult Mechanicus box, since Skitarii have dominated the boxes ever since the faction came out. And yes, that does include Electro-priests, especially as they are my favorite AM model lol

start collecting box isnt hideous for me.
It'd give me a third dunecrawler and troops unit which may be nice and I dont have any Kataphrons yet. None of my admech that I own (bar two test models) are built yet though so I can hold out for a bit before getting this.

Only downside with it is I already have that tech priest model so he will become conversion fodder if I do get it.

My original guess based on the points / price was:

Enginseer
Skitarii
Kataphrons
Skorpius

(Basically current sc plus kataphrons)

Not far off and an ‘okay’ set for someone starting out with their collection. Had I been designing it I would have swapped the onager for a dunestrider and the kataphrons for an iron strider just for the variety in the kits / builds.

It doesn't look like it I'm afraid. It seems like that Marshal model has been waiting to be released since the dawn of time at this point. teehee.gif

 

I've been waiting for the codex to drop before I decide which direction to take my army but I have plenty of other projects to paint while I wait.
