The weekend just passed we saw the official launch event for the Horus Heresy Set coming from Games Workshop. Prior to the event, we saw leaks, rumours and mostly panicked players concerned over the hearsay that the box would be a hefty price.

Now, players have confirmation of all! Well... vaguely. But, Warhammer has released exactly what to expect for the upcoming Boxed Set for Horus Heresy, which will title Age of Darkness.

If the counting images beforehand made your eyes fuzz up, you'll be happy to know of the confirmation that there are roughly four squads of 10 Beaky Boys, 10 Cataphractii Terminators, 2 Legion Praetor models, one tanky Contempotor Dreadnought (which can be built in many different ways), a Spartan Assault Tank kit, and finally everything you need to get started. Which will include rules, measurement tools, dice and transfers. All models are being prepared for launch in plastic.

Alongside the announcement of the contents, Games Workshop did confirm their price (sort of). I expect after the internet was up in arms about the potential £250 price tag that was circulating. However, Warhammer has confirmed that the box will cost players "less than £200". Which is a wonderful price considering the amount that comes in the box.

Do not feel the need to purchase this box as soon as it's released, as we will not be running into any limited-edition releases. Although we have no release date nailed down just yet! As the box seems to be a fantastic Starter Set for the upcoming title, they would be bananas to take this off the shelves.

If you wanted to take a closer look at the whole contents of the box, be sure to head over to the Warhammer Community for a full scope of images and info on the upcoming set, announced at Warhammer Fest.

Are you satisfied with the announcements for the upcoming Horus Heresy Boxes Set?
