Battleforce boxes had success in 2020 & 2021. These are a fantastic way to get into a new army or even add to an existing one, but whats inside them and how many points of miniatures do you get?
Well Warhammer Community have announced that they are coming back for 2022!
If you’re looking for the Warhammer 40k 2022 article it’s here
Prices have been confirmed to be £130 per box – Peter. In the meantime I thought our readers would like to know the value of the toys… so see below against each box:
|Daughters of Khaine – Slaughter Coven||£162.50||£130.00|
|Orruk Warclans – Kruleboyz||£187.50||£130.00|
|Gloomspite Gitz – Stampeding Squigalanche||£191.50||£130.00|
|Skaventide – Verminous Host||£206.50||£130.00|
|Nighthaunt – Legion of Grief||£200.00||£130.00|
|Slyvaneth – Revenant Wargrove||£211.00||£130.00|
|Stormcast Eternals – Thunderstrike Spearhead||£198.50||£130.00|
There’s a big variation here, with Daughters of Khaine being the lowest price outside the boxset – because a good chunk of them are in the Vanguard box. So a lot depends on the RRP of each Battleforce but there’s likely to be some good deals in there – especially if it’s your army or you’re looking for something new to play with in 2023.
But I can tell you a way of saving even more money by purchasing these at 25% off the recommended retail price! Just visit SCN Hobby World and sign up to their mailing list for 25% off all GW products and 20% Warlord Games products.

So what do you get inside and how much would it cost you normally? I’ve also included the points for the troops as sold, but you can make small changes with the way some of the models are built.
