battleforce 40k

Today we are unboxing and taking a look at all four of the new 40k Battleforce bundle deals that have been released just in time for the Holidays!

All four of these new 40k Battleforces are a great value and would be the perfect way to expand or start a new army!

Battleforce: Deathwatch Watchblade Task Force

First we will crack open the new Deathwatch Battleforce. This is the first time Games Workshop has skipped the Start Collecting box and went straight to the Battleforce box. It is all boxed in the new slip box style that has become a standard with new Games Workshop products. Other than all the miniatures that come in this box there is also a new formation with the special rule Ceaseless Assault which we will go over in the video below.

Battleforce: Adeptus Mechanicus Eradication Cohort

Next up is the Adeptus Mechanicus Battleforce which contains a slightly better deal that we saw in the Start Collecting box. This box includes a new formation that gives a special rule, Surgical Precision, which gives Preferred Enemy to any Eradication Cohort unit that inflicts an unsaved wound, glancing hit or penetrating hit on an enemy unit.

Battleforce: Tau Empire Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre

If you are playing or just starting to collect Tau, then this next box is definitely something you are going to want to pick up. With almost $100 in savings this box is exactly what you need to fill out or start your Tau army.

Battleforce: Space Wolves Ironclaw Strike Force

Last but not least we are going to talk about the new Space Wolf Battleforce. This is a great box because it comes with a lot of models that you will need to play Space Wolves. This box is probably the biggest savings out of all the Battleforce boxes with over $100 in savings.
