    I thought they those strange bases were for the one piece Goblin Spider Riders.

    Yes they are calvary bases. So that maybe so.


    But there is a square one. Maybe for the troll?

    Re: Box Set

    Yup, looks like a 40x40 to me, besides, this kit is designed to quickly turn into two forces that actually can look quite good without having to introduce new players to all parts of flocking and sanding bases directly from the start.

    Also notice the thin version of the next BrB kept inside, much like the Mines of Moria and Battle for Macragge books I would suspect, seeing as it looks smaller than the current one.

    Does anyone know what the stats are likely to be for the spider riders?

    "Slaughter at Skull Pass"?

    I don't particularly like the idea of a smaller rulebook or stands with terrain already on them. Maybe it's just for the spiders though, we'll see.

    They always do a cut down version of the rule book in the starter boxes, with just the core rules!

    Re: Box Set

    i think the "slaughter at skull pass" is like warhammers answer to the battle of macragge. i think those bases are for the goblins so that they wont take as long to move as usually a unit is more like a horde

    If by 'always' you mean once before then yes, you are correct.

    Re: Box Set

    Just adding to Chuffy's response.

    Up until 6th Edition, the starter/gamebox for WHFB included a full sized/complete/unabridged version of the rules.

    Wait, you mean the 288pg monstrosity that came with my starter set is smaller than the stand alone rulebook?

    Twice if you count LotR Mines of Moria.

    Re: Box Set

    The small rulebook in the starter boxes contain all the rules for warhammer - no rules have been shortened or left out.

    Which is exactly as it is with the Mines of Moria and Battle for Mcragge sets.

    The stuff they leave out is the fluff, pretty pictures and hobby stuff that old time gamers don't need anyway.

    I'll buy the new starterset just to get the new, smaller rulebook in it - it will be easier to carry around.

    My guess:
    Riders: regular goblins with hand weapons
    Spiders: M7, WS3, Bs-, S3, T3, W1, I3, A1, Ld3
    Spiders have Poison attacks and Ignore movement penalties for all "dry terrain", they are not Fast cavalry
    Base cost: 10 pts
    Unit may have spears (+1 pt), short bows(+2 pts), shields (+1 pt).
    Boss (+6 pts), Standard (+12 pts), Musician (+6 pts)

    I'll eat all your hats if that is much off.
    As a long-time Goblin player, I can reliably inform you that failure is ALWAYS an option.

    Better keep your teeth away from my hat, I will need it myself well enough!

    That said, I would expect Avians prediction to be relatively close. I will also expect to see half a dozen posts named "Spider riders are cheese" from clueless people.
