is-it-a-deal-start-collecting-40k-valuesPrices keep going up! Come see the new value on GW Start Collecting 40k box sets, so you can spend your hobby dollars even smarter now!

Games Workshop has some awesome ways to get started off on the right foot in 40k. If you’re trying to save money while building up your collection, a Start Collecting box is almost always the way to go. With that said, here is all the potential value inside every 40k Start Collecting box.

IMPORTANT: GW raised the price on all their products across the board, bringing their Start Collectings up about $10-$15 back in 2019. However, it also looks like GW is continuing to slowly increase the prices by about $5 on some kits, bringing new and varying values to the table. A lot has changed in less than a year.

Social Distancing Update:

Games Workshop may be closed and not shipping out orders right now, but there are still a few ways to buy the Warhammer kits you need to fuel your hobby!

GW already announced earlier that they wouldn’t be shipping any more products or releasing anything indefinitely. Here in the states, retailers like Miniature Market and Dicehead Games are still shipping orders with the stock they have on hand.

By now, however, their stock may be starting to look a bit dried up. So if you’re searching for some new kits to hobby on, there are still great second-market stores on Amazon you should look at too that are still reasonably priced at 15% off retail for the most part.

Warhammer Start Collecting Box Sets

40k start collecting

Start Collectings box sets are a tried and true classic way of jumping into a faction. They’ve got all kinds of boxes still currently up at the time of writing this and you’ll be able to save a little bit vs. buying all of the kits individually.

After looking at all the new value on the 40k Start Collecting box sets, it’s safe to say that there definitely are some good deals to take advantage of out there. Some boxes basically give you an entire unit for free. With prices continuing to go up across the board on GW’s end, we need to be more aware of the potential value wherever we can get it!
