I'm semi interested in the guard one based on price. Its not a super amazing one, pretty much everything is stuff an average guard army already has mountains of, but its things I could convert into some ideas Ive been having.

The Blood Angel one is not the Xmas box but the normal Combat Patrol (the new form of Start Collecting) box
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

New Campaign is coming!



Quote
Typhus – wayward son of Mortarion, favoured of Nurgle, and host to the Destroyer Hive – seeks to exploit a weakened Imperium and claim the forge world Metalica for his own nefarious purposes. Standing against him are the Adeptus Mechanicus, and their epic battles will play out in War Zone Charadon Act 1: The Book of Rust. Heroes will stand, worlds will fall, and an entire system stands on a knife-edge.



Quote
There’s more than just the background of an epic war zone in here, the book also includes new rules for:

Death Guard
Adeptus Mechanicus
Imperial Knights
Drukhari
The warriors of Commorragh are keen to take advantage of the chaos and confusion caused by Typhus’ invasion. Alongside these codex supplements are rules for playing through the Charadon campaign yourself. Can you claim Metalica for the Death Guard or will you try to stop Typhus?

The Plague Purge Mission Pack allows everyone to join the fun in the Charadon war zone with a host of specific Crusade rules. Send your army campaigning through a land of rust and decay, and pick up some new relics and abilities along the way. In the same way as Beyond the Veil, this pack gives you a whole new region of space to set your campaigns in.


Along with some new codexes.

Seems interesting, although not a Nurgle fan.  And no, that's not because I just came off of covid fighting. :icon_wink:

None of the armies mentioned are ones I particularly care about, but I do like to see the expansion of the more narrative elements. I really like the Crusade mode.

Are the primus marines going to phase out the other marines you think? I hate to see the land raider phased out

Eventually I think they will, but I also think theres still a few years yet. Models like terminators and even tactical marines are still fairly iconic and the primaris havent built the same recognition.
