Default Assualt on black reach worth it?

I play tau and so i would have really no use for a small space marine and ork army (besides that it would be cool). i really just need the 5th ed rulebook and new templates. so, how much are the marines and orks combined worth if bought seperately (not from the black reach set) and what is the real value of this set (money-wise).

Well the set cost 60 dollars. But the terminators otherwise Arte expensive. However the other rulebook cost 50 dollars. You would also have to sell them below market price to get a sale quickly.

It's not a bad deal actually. You rulebook is what your after no? It's only ten dollars more than just buying the plain old bible, but you can sell the other stuff on ebay, which means you will probably make out on the deal.

Does that mean the UK is getting ripped off?

Or it just means that the US consumers don't have enough money to spend for 80 on so they make it 60 and get more profit that way.

Stuff has always been cheapest in the US.

If you don't care about the fluff 2/3rds of the BRB, then this set is still worth it just for the book, templates, and dice.

Everything would come out to over $300 USD if bought in their own kits. But most of those kits are exponentially better in value because they come with options, are posable, etc. (the Tacticals are the only ones that I think are an equal of the normal set IMO). But still this is 2 complete armies...

It would be hard to put a value on this, as what people think of snap-fit models varies from person to person. Like I personnally prefer the regular kits over snap-fit any day, no matter the price. But, I know one of my friends could hardly care less as long as its cheap.

With our economy going to shit like it is they'd be nuts to put an $80 price tag on it.

Depending on whether or not you are the kind of gamer who likes to convert things exponentially, or if the bits just sort of get in the way. Either way though, I think you'll find the box pretty worth it.

On the flip side, why not keep the armies and keep them for demo games?
