PostSubject: Megaforce set available for holidays   Wed Oct 26 2011, 17:40

Found this posted by Worglock on Dakka, and a later post by borath101 confirms it with a pic from this year's holiday guide that he picked up at his local GW store (he also includes pics of the other megaforce sets). Looking at the poster pic, there's 20 Wyches, not 25, but the rest is accurate (unless one of the Raiders is actually a Ravager):

Worglock wrote:

Dark Eldar - Includes about 25 Wyches. 10 Kabalite Warriors. 9 Reavers. 5 Scouges. 2 Raiders and a Venom.

Space Marines - Don't remember everything in it. There's a drop pod, dreadnought. meh. it's Mehreens. Make up of the set is better than last years.

Skaven - 40 Stormvermin. 40 Clanrats. 20 Plague monks. Bell. Warp lightning cannon. Rat Ogres.

1 other fantasy megaforce. High Elves?

Unles this is a big enough savings that those Reavers are more than free, I'll likely pass, The scourges are iffy, I just need Troops, Elites, and HS, thankyewverymuch. If It's more than, say, 225-250, Not a chance.

Here is a quote from LunaHound on Dakka on how it breaks down, though I'd be happy to trade for the Reavers 8P

LunaHound wrote:
1 kabalite warrior = $2.191
1 wytch = $2.191
1 raider = $24.88
1 reaver = $8.73

These are the discount worth of units inside a Battle Force. If we use that to factor the mega army then we get:

9 Reavers = $78.57
10 Kaba Warrior = $21.91
25 Wych = $54.75
2 Raiders = $49.76

Total so far = $205 Battleforce price worth.

Vemon = $30
Scourge = $25

Grand Total $260.

Not only are you not saving on the 2 , you are paying $15 to get privilege of having a Venom and Scourge in this combo.

That was also if the Megaforce cost 275 and we don't know how much it will be yet.

We may have a deal, never can have too many wyches and raiders!

The price on all separate on Au GW site is 528au, 474au with battle force. 354au separate without reavers, so cheaper even if not using reavers. Same on U.S. site is 208usd, so a little over 200usd? Very good deal in that case, if only I didn't have 5000+ points already, needing paint, I would get it.

On side note, no wonder people in Australia where buying online before ban, It would almost be cheaper to fly over and pickup army in u.k. then pay that kind of markup. Shocked Forgeworld reaper is about the cost of raider in Austraila.

Hmm.

If this has 10 more warriors and a few less reavers I'd probably get it.
Why 9 reavers! that's more than most armies have even at 2000, is it not?

does the left hand side raider not look like a ravager?

And for those who like to buy their models using ye olde English currency of pound sterling:

Dark Eldar Battleforce (contents: 10 Warriors, 10 Wyches, 3 Reavers and a Raider) = £60
10 Wyches = £18
6 Reavers = £43
Ravager = £31
Venom = £18.50
Scourges = £15.50

Total Value = £186

With the Megaforce at £130, that's £56 cheaper than GW and an estimated £20 cheaper than buying from an independent retailer. Really great value for money.

Does anyone know if the indies will be stocking these or are they a GW only thing? I'm really tempted by, if only to stick it in a cupboard and break stuff out when required.

I'd really love to see the return of exclusive miniatures in these boxes, I know that Dark Eldar fanatics like me and many others on this forum would buy the box just for that.

Exclusives would be great, the scourges and reavers are rather useless to me though so I'm not sure I would buy it…

If this comes out at about 200 US dollars then what you get over two battleforces is:

3 Reaver Jetfikes
5 Scourges
1 Venom

and you lose 10 Warriors

I think that is a fair trade.

Well, also it's 10 pounds more than two battleforces
but you get one raider and one ravager.

I think I probably am going to get it though, and sell/swap the scourges and jetbikes for 10 warriors and a venom.

you can see it better on this pic.- the side sponsons, and the different sail.

Wouldn't the better comparison be the normal battlebox to the megaforce? Seems the megaforce has a decent amount of dead weight (conversions, hoooooo!)

Rather than start a new thread I'd like to point out that the Harlequin Troupe set is now being rereleased as Finecast, for those that missed that.

Damn! I really don't want to buy any Harlies right now, but I definitely don't want to deal with those models balancing on sashes in Finecast! Mad

All I was missing was the Death Jester but really he is a shooty guy in an assault squad so he was the oddball.
