Forgebane The New Box Set
« on: March 06, 2018, 03:14:59 AM »
New box set has been announced that looks pretty sweet. Called Forgebane, it's Ad Mech vs Necrons as they fight over a forgeworld that turns out to be built on a buried Tomb World.

Anyone know what the price on this is going to be? Could be a means of bolstering some unfinished forces

Cheers for having these 2 armies. I have neither but like them both. Love those mini knights as well.

they reckon it might be around a 100 quid, the article itself metiones that the box is cheaper than all the units sold separately ( Not counting the knights and cryptec)

I like the Ork figure that showed up on that page when I clicked into it.  Anyone know how much that costs?

I don't have an orc figure on my page GP. It might be a directed ad or something on the website showing us different stuff.

I like the look of the box set. I havn't got any necrons, but I've been planning to start Ad Mech for a while and turn my guard into a combined Imperial Army. I like the two little baby knights. I'm surprised by what looks like a power disparity in the forces. They mention at one point that each baby knight is a super heavy slot, but the necrons don't look like their geared up to take down super heavies. Maybe it relies on scenarios, or the knights are a bit towards the weaker end.

Yeah, they're very cool, not much bigger than a Leviathan Dread tough. I hope they'll make their way to Heresy.

I still tend to buy these sorts of sets as it works out to be cheaper than buying the units seperatly

I agree.  And what is cool is I get some cool figures, even though I won't ever likely own a whole army.

I really want the mini knights, and I'll take the opportunity to make ad mech support for my guard but I can't say I'm desperate for them. The necrons I could take or leave. My friend wants them so maybe I'll trade or hang onto them for roleplay stuff.

Yes. it should come with all the rules for the units (Although maybe not points value but power instead.) as well as rules for the campaign/scenario.

I wonder how many points they'll cost. I'm liking their style more and more, with each day.

95, separate total to contents is 250
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

It's better to compare it to the game starter sets like Dark Imperium, or one of the boxed sets like Betrayal at Calth. I'm looking forward to Kill Team as well, and I'm interested to see how it compares to Necromunda or Shadows.

Indeed. I hope they release the rules separately as they did with Shadowwar. But I am also hoping for a faster game that takes less space and that I can teach my 8-year old. Shadowwar is a tad too advanced.
