Questions regarding new starter purchases

From the sounds of it Expansion 1 is basically going to be a smaller version of the current Core Army Starter. Matt said on Primecast that it’s going to be a Leader, the 2 non-character modular Cohort models, and “core” infantry. That’s basically what the Core Army Starter is, though presumably this will have less stuff in it to meet the lower price point.

This is my understanding of the new release plan:

  • 1 Army Starter Box - Retails for $79.99 USD and contains a Scout Leader, a non-modular character Cohort model, a character unit, and a character solo. These will come out to about 30 points
  • Expansion Box 1 - Retails around $130 USD and will contain another Leader, one each of the two modular Cohort models, and “core” infantry. This plus the Starter Box will give players roughly 75 points worth of models.
  • Expansion Box 2 - Retails around $130 USD and will contain a third Leader, the parts for the Army’s second character Cohort model (these attach to the base cohort torsos from Expansion 1), and “elite” infantry. This plus the Starter Box will give players roughly 75 points worth of models.
  • 80mm solos will remain an individual box
  • The Battlegroup Preview boxes will still be sold with a Leader and two modular Cohort models for around $80 USD.
