10. Eldar Battleforce.
A good start to an Eldar army, but only five Dire Avengers means you will
have to buy more right away. Savings over buying figures separately:
9. Necron Battleforce.
If you can still find it in stock, and are willing to wait for a new codex,
the Necron Battleforce offers a solid start to your army. Savings
over buying figures separately: $30.
8. Imperial Guard Battleforce.
Both the Cadian and Catachan forces come with the same stuff, so either
will work. It would be nice if they came with a tank, but you can
always add what you like later. Savings over buying figures separately:
7. Space Wolves Battleforce.
Twenty guys, plus five Scouts and a Drop Pod? Sounds like a good start
for just about any army. Savings over buying the figures separately:
6. Dark Angels Ravenwing Battleforce.
Six bikes, an Attack Bike, and a Land Speeder are hardly the way to start
a proper army, but make a good start for Ravenwing or as an add on to an
existing Marine force. Savings over buying figures separately:
5. Space Marine Battleforce.
As far as boxed sets go, the Marine force is kind of boring. Still,
just about everything in it will be useful right off the bat (you may want
to invest in five more Assault troops and another combat squad, though).
Savings over buying figures separately: $41.50.
4. Tau Battleforce.
Issues with the codex aside, the Tau Battleforce comes with a variety of
things from which to build an army. I would rather have two more
Crisis Suits over three Stealth Suits, but you take what you can get.
Savings over buying figures separately: $55.
3. Space Marine Megaforce.
For about twice as much as a Battleforce, you can get a much more useful
assortment of figures. The Megaforce has everything the Battleforce
has, plus five more Marines, a Dreadnaught, and a Predator. Instant army!
Savings over buying figures separately: $54.
2. Ork Megaforce. The
Ork Megaforce is far superior to the Battleforce, which is probably why
the Megaforce is a limited time only deal. Savings over buying
figures separately: $63.75
1. Assault On Black Reach.
In case you were unable to figure it out on your own, Black Reach is just
a stupidly good deal. Sure the figures you get are nor very posable
or customizable: so what? You get over $300 worth of figures plus
rules, templates and dice for $75. Are you serious?
