From Alliance games via Dakka we have details of upcoming 40K releases.

GAW 40-10 Warhammer 40K: Space Marines Index Astartes 4 $25.00
GAW 48-06-N Warhammer 40K: Space Marines Combat Squad $20.00
GAW 51-10-N Warhammer 40K: Tyranid Carnifex $45.00
GAW 51-35-N Warhammer 40K: Tyranid Zoanthrope $15.00
GAW 51-36-N Warhammer 40K: Tyranid Ravener $15.00
GAW 51-39-N Warhammer 40K: Tyranid Broodlord $20.00

Glad to see IA4 is finally getting a release but the price of the Carnifex is what interests me.

$45 is the same price as the Marneus Calgar box but also BFM box so the UK price could be anything from 25 to 40. I'm hoping it's the former rather than the latter.

BFM is heavily discounted in the US like all of the starter sets.
Does the "no price whinges" apply when the US get things for half the price we pay in the UK? :)

The Carni will be around 25 in the UK.

As long as it's on topic no, I did consider that when I started this thread.

What we don't want to see is another in the seemingly endless line of threads on the subject of pricing.

I don't want to see no price whinges I want to see intelligent discussion of them but if it's not a rumour then not here.

That's about what I expected.

That took it's sweet time Brimstone. ;)

What intrigues me is the price of the combat squad box. It is a lot more expensive at 12 now than it was at 6 before.

Edit: @ Boogle: Is Librarian a new rank or is my memory failing?

It'd imply that it's five marines with the missile launcher accessory sprue so it's 2/3 of a full tac box, so 2/3 of the price.

Takes it away from the pocket money/impulse purchase market though.

it would seem it is a new rank, the Combat Squad will be 10 not 12

Ah well. I was just going of that the US price is the same as a bolt thrower, ie 12. Still, it was a nice impulse buy box before, but now it's a good opportunity to get extra purity seals and extra bitz. Basically a box for more religious chapters.

i think there will be around 8 models in the box, but not as much accessories as the main one, and no kneeling legs.

Hi all again... glad to see Portent back!


GAW 40-10 Warhammer 40K: Space Marines Index Astartes 4 $25.00

I've got quite a question for those of you that are insiders. What will there be in IA4? will there be anything on White Scars or is the current line "we go on and don't mind about problems" still in pole position at the moment?

I suppose (quite for sure) there will be something on the Blood Ravens, but will all the other entries be firsttimers in IA?

Well, if any insider got and read through this... do you know nothing about the Tau drones thingy?

Thanks anticipatedly (sp?),

IA4 will be the remainder first founding chapters (Alpha Legion, Sallies etc.) and possibly renegade marines or Blood Ravens (which we've still not seen in the UK IIRC). And possibly something on Apothcaries.

Is their any truth to the rumour the new combat squads will be BfM marines not multipart?

Blood Ravens we haven't seen in the UK, the renegades article was published 2 months ago (covered the Red Corsairs)

Yeah which is why I wondered if that'd be the extra one, like the BT's and Flesh tearers.

possibly, but we are getting 1 more chapter in this one over the others BL, RG, SM, AL, WB, maybe the Renegades IA, maybe the Blood Ravens IA, beyond that who knows

And hopefully some gumpf on apothcaries. They've covered all the other specialists.
