Games Workshop REALLY want new blood in the hooby, because this week it's a further extension of their Start Collecting range, this time it's squad based - an excellent idea and one they really need to look at doing more often.
To go with the new boxed set there are also new paint sets to go with some of the major armies. Unfortunately they come with the crappy little pots, so best make them stretch!
So in term of the new sqaud sets, it looks like you get the squad at full price and about 50% off the vehicle at least in the AUD $.
Having a transport with the squad seems like a no-brainer especially if they're looking at bringing back BIG battles where transport is vital as both cover and to just get places. Who gets a box? Blood Angels, Dark Angels (with an upgrade sprue), Orks, Tau, Imperial Guard, Chaos Marines, Dark Eldar, Space Wolves, Eldar (not sure about this one. Looks a bit naff), Ultramarines (& a bigger one too), Necrons and Tyranids.
But the bigger news is the confirmation via the ad for White Dwarf this week that Cadia is in fact cactus and Abaddon is back, still with his retro Luna Wolves haircut! Will there be a new miniature? One can only hope!
