I am waiting to see whats in it before I commit to buying it.

Shockingly we might have to wait for an actual GW announcement to find out.

Yep, I want it if only to get the new book early. I think I could always sell unwanted models at an inflated price because they are pre-release date models.

I'm with Venkh. I'd like to see what's included in the spearhead box and what it will set me back before ordering one.

I think there have been quite accurate rumors about the content already.

10 Corsairs, 5 COK, Hydra, Lord on foot, mounted Lord, Sorceress on foot, mounted Sorceress + Armybook. That's it, more or less.

I will definitely order one, either way, since I want all the new models, anyways. :D

Bye
Thanee

I can't remeber off hand, but i don't think its as much as £190. I need to advance order mine as soon as possible as i won't be working for them by the time the general release comes out, got to save those pennies! Some one also told me that you won't get the army books in the spearheads any more, but i'm not sure that can be right. What would be the point in getting new troops and not knowing how you are allowed to equip them? :roll: All the same, can't wait to get my hands on the new cold ones....

There's a pictureof the front of the box floating around on the net, so obviously you can all see the contents of the spearhead. 20 corsairs, btw, as opposed to 10. ;)

As for me, I have more than enough figs for the time being (and vast multiples of everything in that box), so I'm going to have to pass. I may pick them up individually over time (something I'm prone to ;) ), but unless I find a sweet deal, I don't think I'll bite.

Vorchild: Unless I missed a pic, the picture you are speaking of cannot be from our spearhead as it includes old models (bolt thrower) AND doesn't include Sorceress or Dreadlord on Coldone nor Dreadlord on foot.

It's pretty safe that that french page was Not the spearhead. I checked with GW mailorder (in Oz) who said that nothing about the contents will be released until 6 weeks before the 19-7 release date. Thats just over a week away, so like a lot of people, I am going to hold my horses until we get an official release on the contents.

Yes, we know the basic contents, but until I know exactly which heroes, special characters or assassins are in the box, my money stays in my pocket.

Watch out Vorchild, you'll have certain members tearing your genitals off in frustration that you (as I did) assumed the French advert to be the Spearhead contents.

From what I've heard, 22 models total and 190$ USD. Corsairs, Hydra, Lord on foot/ on Cold One, Sorceress on foot / on Cold One (why?!?) and the army book.

Allthough I got more than enough dark elf models.... Yep I'll get the spearhead (even though I'm not the biggest fan of the new models).

Love my druchii :D

cheers.

i was told (got the kensington gw manager to check wiht mail order) that the spearhead can be pre-ordered form next sat (7th) so we should have contents confirmation by then.

i am 99% certain i will be picking one up.

ALOT! :)
Well I guess I will at least buy the spearhead, mainly for the book, oh I am already in love with it. Don't know if I will like it though, but I am looking forward to it like a sweet lover longing for his partner, mmm.

And yeah probably the battalion box will follow, just because it's our battalion box and I will probably have money at that moment.

I don't think so. I like my current sorceresses(including milk cup Hag) better than the new ones actually, and I doubt I'll use the Hydra. The corsairs and CoK are awesome though.

I was...but Im not so sure now. The CO sorceress is soo stupid and one of my few models is a coverted sorceress on DS, so I dont see the point in her. But everything else is fine. Just not sure if my HobbyUSA or w.e its called will have it in so whats the point if I get the same models the day all of them release haha, cause if I order it through them i wont get it till the big release probably.

SO idk. I might.........Just warhammer is a waste of money and I should be saving for a car etc, I am saving pretty much all of my job money, but I shouldnt spend so much on this...

But if I have most or all of my bought models done by then, I can justify the big purchase..cause I have a ton of O and G and de to paint........

But then my opponents only have a max of 1500-2500 and few of them. No GW in AZ. :(

Sorry for the ramble. haha. i might get it.

I'm getting one and it'll be my last purchase for a little while. I have a mate who works for GW and he is putting one on hold for me which is fantastic i cannot wait.
@ b0yceb0y i agree with you bout the whole saving for a car, only i have medical bills to pay as well as getting a "new" car lol.

Anyone know how much the spearhead will be in Australian dollars? I need to know if I can afford to buy a cauldron or two more bolt throwers plus the spearhead.

I think its about $198 Aud converted from 190 USD or 388 converted from GBP. have a look at XE.com its a universal currency converter and yeah look through this topic for ppl who have quoted prices and yea convert them to AUD. hope this helps.
