These aren't new army deals, they are re-releases of the apocalypse army deals.

I don't think so, they look like new ones. I don't remember the Necron one or the SM/CSM sets with the two land raiders. But I could be wrong.

Not sure if they've tweaked it but there was an armoured spearhead set released for the SMurfs in apoc.

Can't be sure about the CSM's.

Every single one of those army deals is new, I'm positive of it.

That counter set looks interesting. :P

Fair do's.

The counter set looks irritating. If we need to cover the board in counters then 5th ed. is taking a step in the wrong direction.

Exactly, it's a pointless step backwards. Next we'll all have overwatch, initiative tests, falling damage, cover modifiers to hitting, injury tables, psychic points, equipment cards, parry and double move for running...wait, that sounds familiar ???

Oh... you are speaking such sweet music in my ear, Tarik!
I shall get Lord-General and we shall enjoy your prophecy with a glas of whisky on the rocks! ;D

I think the counters are just there to help with stuff we kept in memory anyway.

Such high praise indeed Ra'Meses *bows*

I have a feeling that you are right about them being more of an aid to memory, but should we needlessly add more things to remember in the first place?
