Warhammer Community just let us in on what’s going up on pre-order for 40k! Let’s check out what all is on the way to pre-order on August 8th. This is a great announcement for new players who are just getting started!
This is the lowest entry box, making it ideal for anyone who is unsure and wants to play some small games with family or friends to see if they like Warhammer 40k. The 8th Edition version of this, First Strike was $40 when it released in 2017.
Elite Edition offers the perfect upgrade, with additional units in the form of Skorpekh Destroyers and Outriders, led by a mighty Necron Overlord and Primaris Captain. Like the Recruit Edition, the Elite set includes a gaming mat and a printed box interior to serve as a terrain piece, as well as dice and range rulers.
The Elite Edition is a slight upgrade that you would mainly get if you wanted a slightly bigger army to play with on both sides. The 8th Edition version of this, Know No Fear was $80 when it released in 2017.
For new and experienced players alike who are looking to start the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 in the best possible way, the Command Edition is the ultimate starter box. In addition to the same selection of miniatures as the Elite Edition, the Command set also features a fold-out, double-sided gaming board as well as a selection of brand-new, push-fit battlefield terrain to fight over
The Command Edition is the largest set. It ditches the box terrain for actual paintable terrain that you put together. It also comes with the Core Book, which is a configuration we didn’t see for 8th Edition 40k in this model count size.
There is a new paint set incoming for both the Necrons and Space Marines. They include three brand-new, push-fit Necron Warriors with gauss flayers and Assault Intercessors respectively, each in distinct poses that are different to those featured in Indomitus and the three starters sets.
These are perfect for any players who want the paints and want to try their hands on just a few of the new models before diving in deeper.
Paints and Tool Kit
The set includes an additional 13 paints, many of which are the same colours as those found in the above paint sets, enabling you to continue your painting journey onto the models in the starter sets without running out.
Not only does this come with a bunch of paints, but also a pair of clippers and a mold line remover. Both are almost essential to have if you don’t already have a pair.
What do you think about the new 9th Edition 40k Starter Sets that are coming to pre-order? Are you excited about any of these releases? Or do you know anyone who is just getting start that these would be good for?
