A new Warhammer 40,000 ‘Battle Box’ is on the way from the folks at Games Workshop as they unveiled Forgebane this week. The new set sees the Necrons clashing with the Adeptus Mechanicus on the tabletop and comes with a few new models too.
The box will contain two armies which can go head-to-head on the tabletop as well as the rules to play games with them. The box contains enough models to not only play around with the basic mechanics of the game but take things to the next level with those Canoptek Wraiths and the new Knight Armiger Warglaives.
These mini-knights are piloted by Knights in training and are no less adept and cutting their way through the enemy and their vehicles on the tabletop. They also happen to look rather awesome which is always a big bonus. Of course, one of the other new models for the set is the Necron Cryptek.
This fellow can skim around the battlefield, using his abilities to heal your units and get them fixed up for battle. I really like the posing for him which is different from the standard stoic look of the Necrons, adding a dose of character to their force.
As a starter force, this does appeal. It gives you two very dynamic and different looking armies from the world of Warhammer 40,000 and ways to play right out of the box. How balanced they might be is probably the discussion to be had, but it gives you a nice base to build from when it comes to playing your games.
What do you think of the new models?
