Declan (2023) – if you came here looking for 2023 boxes, their article is here!
Battleforce boxes are back after their 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 2022 – Age of Sigmar – information its here)
Prices have been confirmed for the AoS boxes to be £130, so I wouldn’t expect 40k to be different – Peter. In the meantime I thought our readers would like to know the value of the toys… so see below against each box:
|Adepta Sororitas – Sanctorum Guard||£191.00||£130|
|Adeptus Custodes – Watchers of the Gate||£202.50||£130|
|Adeptus Mechanicus – Elimination Maniple||£184.50||£130|
|Imperial Knights – Chainbreaker Lance||£205.00||£130|
|Death Guard – Council of the Death Lord||£196.00||£130|
|Thousand Sons – Court of the Crimson King||£201.00||£130|
|Imperial Fists – Bastion Strike Force||£194.50||£130|
|Raven Guard – Ravenstrike Battleforce||£195.50||£130|
A very similar value in each box, although the Death Guard one is very tempting… don’t tell Sanguinius!
