Definately.
Just saying in advance, please don't post saying how much the new models suck (I love them).

Add a poll otherwise we'll have to wade through pages of people just saying yes.

Sorry if I come off as a bit tetchy ;)

Not sure yet. I like to order things thru my local independent mate, want to wait and see if he'll have the option.

...or not...

Nah, they never include the stuff I want in my army anyway. I avoided the daemon one, and when I got the book it turned out to be the right decision.

But speaking of daemons, they've put buying Dark Elves (and probably Warriors of Chaos!) on hold as it is...

(Chaos keeps on managing to do that to me and Dark Elves)

Pardon my glove, but what exactly is included in the Dark Elf Spearhead? Do Spearheads include any special kind of packaging (IIRC they just come in a cardboard box...). I've heard a lot of conflicting reports about what the exact contents will be.

I probably will order one, if only to get a nice assortment of the new models in one box. It's really not much of a bargain, eh?

I'll definately be getting one since I don't own any of the current models they are re-releasing (with the exception of 5 cold ones... but the new ones look wicked).
It will also be nice to get in some games with them early (via the new book) to see how the new list works prior to everyone else hopping on the Dark Elf band wagon.

Sorceress, RBT, Hydra, 5 COK and 20 Corsairs. For about $190-200...

I've heard possibly the book too, though there's as many people saying it is included and people saying it isn't.

I won't be ordering it. Seems too expensive for what you get inside, and I already have 10 COK and 2 RBT's, I don't need more.

From my viewpoint, the only advantage seems to be getting the book early. The pricing seems to still be unclear so it ain't for financial gains that's for sure.

Most spearheads you don't end up saving money but you get the book earlier. The army Battlaion box sets you save the most money on. I'll be gatting the spearhead just to get the new book early.

I like the idea of getting the book ASAP and I certainly intend to get all of the new models (if only for conversion fodder), so if the Spearhead meets those needs, I'll be happy to have it (I'm not particularly bothered about a discount). My main concern is I don't want to shell out for a lot of extra 6th edition models (of which I already have a plethora). Are we anticipating a Spearhead, a Batallion Box and a boxed army or only two of those three? Are limited edition models supposed to be a component of any of these batches?

I'll be ordering three... but not for myself... they'll be for the shelves of my store ;)

Personally, one of those three will be for me :D

AFAIK, the Spearhead will contain only new models and the rulebook, and will probably be a savings of a small little bit (2 to 5 USD).

The battalion box (of which I have no details, ATM) will probably end up being a savings of 5 to 7 USD, and will contain mostly core models and no characters, if it follows the last few battalion box releases.

GW appears to have done away with the army box sets, except for the forces that sell really well, and have completely done away with the "you can only get model XXXX by buying the special army box that's only available for a limited time".

I'm hoping to have concrete details on the Spearhead contents within the next week or two, and may even get my hands on a preview copy of the army book by mid-June, if all goes well :D

Dunno yet, dunno what's in it yet, guess they'll just pack all the new stuff into the box, so by those merits it should be an "ok" box. I'm getting a bit bored of the rumor mill tho, dunno, might just wait a few weeks until I know what's good and what's not, and order the whole army at 20% off instead of buying the spearhead at 100% price, which is rather stupid just to get a few models a bit early. :lol:

Cheers

I think I'll scream if one more person says this: it was clearly just a promo poster and not the spearhead. :evil:

As for me I'll just wait and see if I've got the pennies in the bank.

Seeing as it was in French (my French is ok, but not fluent) and that it looked at a Spearhead-type size, and consisted almost entirely of new models, I wouldn't say it was "clearly" just a promo poster. Sorry if I offended you by mistaking it for the Spearhead box.

Still, it sounds like you get even less than that in the Spearhead box, which makes it even more of a crap deal for $190.

I agree that the "selling point" of the spearhead is getting the book a few weeks sooner. I would buy all the minis in it at some point anyway, so If the book in there I"ll order one.

I'll definently be getting the spearhead as i want/need everything from the box especially the characters as i'm sick of using special characters to represent them. I also want the book early and spill its beans to you guys mwuhahaha...
