GW: Battleforce Boxen für 40k und AoS

Mit insgesamt zehn Battleforce Boxen geht Games Workshop dieses Jahr in die Wintersaison, sechs Boxen führen uns in die vom Krieg zerüttete Zukunft von Warhammer 40.000 und vier führen in die Reiche der Sterblichen von Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets to Kickstart Your Winter Season

The festive season always brings some extra-special goodies in the form of annual Warhammer 40,000 army  boxes. These amazing boxed sets are packed to the brim with miniatures, and make a brilliant way to start a new project or reinforce your favourite faction.

And it’s that time of year again.

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 1

Defenders of the Ancestors

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 2

The Leagues of Votann place the defence of their Ancestor Cores as the highest priority, and nothing but their biggest guns will do when enemies come knocking. A rock-hard core of 10 Einhyr Hearthguard are led by an Einhyr Champion as they bundle into a heavily-armed Hekaton Land Fortress, backed up by the wisdom of a Grimnyr living ancestor while a Sagitaur ATV provides mobile fire support.

Beast Snagga Stampede

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 3

As snow begins to fall and friends gather to exchange gifts, who better to loot an enticing bounty of presents than the Beast Snaggas? These green-hued big game hunters are ready to scrap, led by legendary everything-killer Mozrog Skragbad – who can be built as a standard Beastboss on Squigosaur, if you prefer – at the head of three Squighog Boyz and a Nob on Smasha Squig. They’re joined by a Painboss medic and a mob of 10 Beast Snagga Boyz, who mount up in a psyker-strapped Kill Rig – which can alternatively be built as a Hunta Rig and a psychic Wurrboy on foot – to keep up with the cavalry for a jolly old winter punch-up.

Cadian Defence Force

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 4

Guardsmen with lasguns, big rumbling tanks… is there any more an Astra Militarum fan could want? The Cadian Defence Force is a classic assemblage of humanity’s might, pairing 20 Cadian Shock Troops and a five-model Cadian Command Squad with two mighty Rogal Dorn battle tanks, presenting an immovable wall of firepower. It’s enough to make the most ambitious Black Crusader think twice.

Space Marines Spearhead Force

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 5

The fastest fighters amongst the new Space Marine releases have wasted no time in forming a Spearhead Force. This boxed set is bursting with 15 of the new Jump Pack Intercessors, led by a Captain with Jump Pack. Such speed needs exceptionally mobile fire support to back it up, so the box also includes a squad of three Outriders and an Invader ATV to add firepower to their overwhelming assault.

Onslaught Swarm

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 6

Bury your foes in a relentless tide of claws with the Onslaught Swarm, one of the most terrifying assemblages of Tyranid monstrosities ever stuffed into a box. A massive Norn Emissary joins up with a Winged Hive Tyrant – which can also be built as a ground bound Hive Tyrant or Swarmlord – to lead a tide of 20 leaping, scything Hormagaunts and 10 ravening Genestealers, with a pair of Ripper Swarms to boot.

Exalted of the Red Angel

Da Red Gobbo will soon be packing up his squig-sleigh to fly across the sky bringing presents to all, and what better gift could you ask for than a mountain of skulls and eviscerated corpses? Angron, Daemon Primarch of Khorne, is getting into spirit of things by packing up his most devoted warriors – 10 Khorne Berzerkers and six Exalted Eightbound, who can alternatively be built as Eightbound – for a worldwide stampede of bloodsoaked mayhem. Don’t forget to leave out the milk and biscuits!

Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces – Six Awesome Boxed Sets To Kickstart Your Winter Season 7

Make sure to hang up an extra-large stocking this year so the Red Gobbo knows just how many of these incredible boxes to stuff down your chimney. They are a great way to add more units to your existing force, and make for quality gifts the Warhammer fan in your life will never forget.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets for the Festive Season

Once again, it is time to reveal the big army boxes for Warhammer Age of Sigmar. A yearly tradition, these hefty boxes are a fantastic way of kicking off a new collection or adding to your pile of potential.

Games Workshop Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets For The Festive Season 1

Let’s waste no time in checking out the contents of these four brilliant boxes.

Primordial Starhost

Games Workshop Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets For The Festive Season 2

Unleash a landside of lizards with the Primordial Starhost. Led by a Slann Starmaster who ensures that these cold-blooded servants enact the Great Plan, this force is a mix of hard-hitting units and nimble skinks, with a block of 10 Saurus Warriors flanked by three Kroxigor – who can also be built as Kroxigor Warspawned – and three Aggradon Lancers. They’re supported by the Hunters of Huanchi, a warband of chameleon skinks that pepper foes with poison darts and send terrawings to claw and peck.

Praetorian Spearhead

Games Workshop Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets For The Festive Season 3

The Ossiarch Bonereapers are a legion of relentless soul-constructs, charged with collecting the Tithe of Bones for their lord Nagash. The Praetorian Spearhead falls under the command of Arch-Kavalos Zandtos – or a standard Liege-Kavalos, if you’d rather build him that way – whose hatred of the living inspires those around him. He is supported by five Kavalos Deathriders, 20 Mortek Guard, a lumbering Gothizzar Harvester, and four Morghast Archai – who can alternatively be built as Morghast Harbingers.

Warhorde of Eternus

Games Workshop Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets For The Festive Season 4

Archaon rules the endless legions of the Slaves to Darkness with a helwrought metal fist, but Be’lakor has long been working to undermine him. Eternus, Blade of the First Prince, is his prime mortal agent, leading three Ogroid Theridons, five Chaos Knights, five Chaos Chosen and 10 Chaos Warriors. But there’s a twist – build Eternus as a Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount and you’ve got a force loyal to Archaon. Or have you? We’ve lost track of who works for who.

Vengorian Court

Games Workshop Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Battleforces – Four Incredible Boxed Sets For The Festive Season 5

Few creatures in the Mortal Realms feed with such gory abandon as the monstrous Vengorian Lords. These bestial vampires may have discarded their noble facade, but they are still capable commanders who can control entire legions of the undead. The Vengorian Court contains a contingent of five Blood Knights, 20 Deathrattle Skeletons, 10 Dire Wolves, and three Fell Bats, and a Vengorian Lord – who can also be built as the legendarily fearsome Lauka Vai, Mother of Nightmares.

Warhammer 40.000 ist unter anderem bei unseren Partnern Fantasywelt und Taschengelddieb erhältlich.

    • Ich denke, man kann zu den Preisen jetzt schon 3 Dinge sagen:

      1. Es wird 3 stellig 😉
      2. Es wird nicht günstig (gut, am Ende des Tages steht das schon unter 1. 😉 )
      3. Es wird in Summe eine große Ersparnis zum Einzelkauf

  • Die World Eaters Box wird sicher instant ausverkauft sein, dank Angron.

    Auch die Vontan Kiste ist ziemlich gut. Praktisch genau die Minis von denen, die man aktuell gut spielen kann.

    Bei der Guard mag ich den Rogal Dorn optisch immer noch nicht, aber seine Regeln sind halt so gut, dass auch die Box schnell weg sein dürfte.

    Die Marine Kiste ist dafür sehr langweilig. 15 neue Springer, nen Springer Cap, 3 Bikes und ein Quad. Für mich nicht spannend.

    Bei AoS sind die Seraphon wohl die beste Box, dafür haben wir gefühlt schon wieder ne Bonereaper Kiste. Laufen die so gut, oder hat GW von denen noch so viel auf Halde liegen, dass die immer wieder ne Discount Box bekommen?

  • Wer die entsprechenden „Imperium“-Hefte erstanden hat, sollte den Ultra-Marines-Inhalt für knapp 60€ bekommen haben, wenn ich das auf dem Foto einigermaßen richtig überblicke …

    • Bis auf die Hupfdohlen.
      Aber die hatte ich mir aus Assault Intercessors und Sprungmodulen von der Mailorder schon lange gebaut – war nicht so geduldig 🙈

    • Nur die Biker und der schreckliche Quad waren im Imperium Magazin. Die Jump-Intercessor sind ja neu. Dennoch im Vergleich eher wenig spannendes drinnen.

      • Sorry, ich bin nicht wirklich im 40k-Thema drin und hatte mir ausgewählte Imperium-Hefte nur wegen des Geländes und den Ausgaben besorgt, die viele Minis auf einmal enthielten (idealer Grundstock für TWS-Maltutorials). Da war teils eine massive Ersparnis gegenüber den GW-Preisen drin. Beispielsweise kostet das Invader-Quad bei GW satte 40€, bei Händlern mit Rabatt um die 32€ und das entsprechende Imperium-Heft lag bei 11€.
