A new battalion box??
« on: April 12, 2012, 07:51:36 AM »
I was browsing the GW website and noticed they have pulled the Empire Battalion box from sale. So i am guessing we will be getting a new one sometime soon.
So what would everyone like to see in a new box?

I thought the old one was ok and fairly decent value...about 90 worth of models for 70.

Oh that's easy, gotta show of those new models of course!!

So in go the Demigryph knights for 33,50

We'll also add in a box of Greatswords for 25,50 because they're so cool.

Add in a box of Infantry and Shooters each for 15,50 a piece and there you go!

90 quid of stuff they can sell for 70, giving you a 'battalion' of 33 models in total.

Yeah, but I'd still probably buy about four...

Like i said, the old version is now missing from the gw uk site. When i asked the manager in my local gw about a new one he said 'yes errr maybe...hang on i still have a couple of the old ones in stock'.
A fraudian slip or just a teasing hint.
But to me, the lack of anything in the webstore says a new one is due.

I was just looking on one online retailers page were they have put a pre-order for the battalion box selling at 60 with 42 plastic models instead of the 70 with 48 models GW sold before the new book. I assume it is the new battalion  :biggriin: but sadly no further information other than model count.
