Battleforce boxes are back after their success in 2020, 2021 & 2022. 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 2023!
(If you’re looking for the 2023 – Age of Sigmar – it is on it’s here!!)
Prices in 2022 were around £130 each so hopefully they haven’t increased much – we’ll let you know as soon as we have the RRP! In the meantime I thought our readers would like to know the value of the toys… so see below against each box:
|Votann – Defenders of the Ancestors||£237.50||£140.00 (Est)|
|Orks – Beast Snagga Stampede||£220.00||£140.00 (Est)|
|Astra Militarum – Cadian Defence Force||£207.50||£140.00 (Est)|
|Space Marines – Spearhead Force||£197.50||£140.00 (Est)|
|Tyranids – Onslaught Swarm||£200.00||£140.00 (Est)|
|World Eaters – Exalted of the Red Angel||£215.00||£140.00 (Est)|
There’s a range of value in each box with the starter set armies (Space Marines & Tyranids) having the lowest value… but who doesn’t love big guys with wings / jump packs! With their own Primarch leading their box it is no surprise that the World Eaters box has the most points in it.
But I can tell you a way of saving even more money by purchasing these at 20% off the recommended retail price! Just visit SCN Hobby World and sign up to their mailing list for 20% off all GW products and 20% Warlord Games products.
Alternatively, if you regularly use Element Games, you can pick them up there… using our affiliate link (for which we receive a small contribution to the site)
So what do you get inside and how much would it cost you normally? All of the points have been given for the basic unit options and include no upgrades, but you can make changes with the way some models are built.
