necromunda-ash-wastes-box-valueAt a price of $300 here is the value, and savings inside the new  Necromunda Ash Wastes Boxset that is kicking off a new way to play!

The starter style sets have really varied in value recently, with some being really worth it and others, not so much. The price of this surprised us a little bit, but that doesn’t mean there still can’t be value inside. When you look at the Hive War box, this new one clocks in at double the price.

While it does have a ton of new minis and terrain, it costs a lot more upfront…

Necromunda Ash Wastes Boxset: What’s the Value?

Necromunda Ash Wastes

The one nice thing about this box is GW actually released everything (other than the terrain and rulebook) at the same time, so we don’t really have to guess at much of the value. Let’s see the breakdown:

  • Ash Waste Nomads $47
  • Dustback Helamite Riders $47
  • Orlock Outrider Quads $47
  • Orlock Gangers $47
  • Terrain $120 (based on the Gang Stronghold with a similar amount of terrain and a single sprue from the Barricades set)
  • Rulebook $60 (based on current rulebook pricing)
  • Tactics Cards $33 (not sure about the cards as they don’t say exactly what they will be, but based on the most recent pricing)
  • Game Mat, Dice, Tokens, and Markers: Added Value (these are not available separately, and from the looks of it the mat is not the cardboard version that sells for $60)

Total MSRP: $401

Savings Versus Box Price: $102

Is The Necromunda Hive War Box Worth It?

Necromunda Ash WastesHonestly, since they are putting out the models on their own at the same time, this might really not be worthwhile if you just want some of the squads for other things.

The main value (in “Games Workshop money”) comes in terms of the terrain and the rulebook. And remember, this is something we haven’t seen any rules for, so you’re basically paying for something you don’t really know much about.

However, the rules and tactics cards probably are needed to play with the dope new models. But if you just want the models inside, it really just seems more worthwhile to buy the kits on their own, as the value in minis only accounts for a very small amount of the overall price.

So, if you want the terrain and the book, you’ll save some cash, if you don’t just buy the kits you want on their own since they really aren’t too expensive, again, in “Games Workshop money” that is…
