New Start Collecting! Box Sets For Warhammer 40K

There are six new boxed sets for Warhammer 40,000. The lucky factions are the  Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Skitarii, Tau Empire, Necrons and Tyranids. Each set comes with an exclusive formation so that you can start playing the game immediately.  The new box sets costs £50 or $85 and offer good savings over buying the models individually. This is a great move by GW and I hope we see the other faction box sets soon. You can order these from GW site right now.  More details on each box set below.
