    Horus Heresy 2.0 Starter Box

    Posted by Dan Rumley on Jun 30th 2022

    We all GW is a premium product and priced...well honestly too high. However, this starter is a solid deal and gets an interested player 80 to 90% of the way to a total army. It is a deal even for more reasonable game companies and a steal at GW pricing for the components. Just the tac marines and the rulebook retail out at $230. The quality is great and actually I think the mark 6 are some of the best minis they have done in awhile. Slightly disappointed that there are only 5 poses but the poses are dynamic and the detail very good. The game itself is definitely different enough from 40k that it brings a whole host of new challenges and strategies, even without 20 different army books. To be honest a 2 player split is not amazing. Someone is losing out on the split in a big way and it cuts you down to having only about 40% of an army. At the discount rate for the box, definitely worth a little pain to buy a single 1 per person if you can rather than reap the higher prices later.
