Battleforce Draw

Post  Planes on Thu May 31, 2012 5:37 pm

It seems that Mini Wargaming and Worthy Painting is doing another one of their draws, and as the prize is a chance for a free Battleforce, I figured I should give you guys a shout.

Contest Details

As a side note, I noticed that only the Grey Knights and Sisters of Battle are lacking a Battleforce (heck, IG get TWO). Any idea if either of those are going to come out in the next year or so?

Not likely. If they did you could have an entire Knights army in one $130 box. Sisters have been slightly "squated" so I'd say no to that too.

GK are problematic only in that there are 3(?) GK only boxes (Grey Knights, Terminators and the Dreadknight). Given the usual values they put in... One of each, maybe 2 Grey Knight boxes? Depending on how they were constructed it'd be 600-1000 points, and would be one of the better BF deals.

Sister wont get done as they only have one all plastic kit (the Immolator).

I wonder if it would be doable if they focused on making it a conversion-centric kit? Namely helmets, heraldry, and weapons needed to take a Space Marine Battleforce and turn it into something Grey Knight. This would allow GW to provide starter support for the army without loosing any major profit, as they would now be selling two products (a Battleforce and a "Conversionforce"), and the conversion set would still be useful/appealing to anyone who has been playing a different Space Marine army thus far and was interested in trying out the Knights.

They do have a "conversion set". It's called the Grey Knight Power Armor Box.

There are enough peices to do a passable conversion of most of the SM, but you're likely better off just getting the GK boxes.
