The sixth edition rules have dropped, but what gets us excited is the new boxed set that is arguably the best value when it comes to army building. The boxed set is also the face of Warhammer 40k as it is often a new player’s first experience with Warhammer 40k miniatures. That’s why we believe it is a very important launch. The main armies are all but official, Chaos vs Dark Angels. However, some debate still looms over the exact miniatures that will be included. Let’s go over what most expect the new box set to include:
- 1x Chaos Dreadnought, plastic with Close Combat Weapon and Twin Linked Melta
- 1x Chaos Lord
- 6x Chaos Marine Chosen with close combat outfit
- 20x Cultists with a mixture of weapons
Outfit: Dreadnought is equipped with DCCW and twin linked melta. Chaos Lord has standard equipment of a plasma pistol and power sword. Chosen are outfitted with a range of close combat weapons such as the power maul, power axe, power fist, and lightning claw. Cultists have numerous weapon options from assault rifles, to flamers.
- 1x Captain Balthasar, non-Terminator
- 1x Librarian
- 3x Ravenwing Bikes
- 5x Deathwing
- 10x Marines with normal outfit and 1 Plasma Cannon, 1 Plasma Gun
