Start Collecting! Box Values

Figured I’d do a nice little write-up, mostly for myself but I know how the internet loves their data. For those unaware, Games Workshop has released these nifty new “start collecting” box sets this week. The sets run $85 USD MSRP and actually have some serious value akin to the old Battleforce/Warband boxes. I decided to do a breakdown and list of all of the boxes and their contents as well as the total value gained on them.

As you’ll see in the breakdown, the value of these things ranges from $30-60 extra which is a great deal. I’ll be picking up one or two most likely for some painting later this year. I’m really hoping they continue this trend for future armies and additions.

  1. Good post mate. I saw these on line the other day and was kicking myself because I have already spent my Christmas present money. I hope GW keeps this offer going as I would really like to get the IG, the Chaos and the Adepts.
