Default Ork Spearhead 'Alright' Deal!

Hey there folks. I've just priced up the Ork Spearhead and it actually turns out to be a okayish deal :P

With the prices I've been able to find this is what I've come up with (from UK Site)

10 Ork Boyz = 12
5 Lootas/Burnas = 12 (Plastic)
5 Tankbustas, 2 Bomb Squigs = 15
3 Warbikes = 20
1 Ork Trukk = 18
Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun = 15
Weird Boy = 10

This comes out to 102, not including P&P

It might not be ideal for starting, but it's better than originally believed

Ok, I couldnt help my self, sorry about that.

Nice work - Personally I have so huge amounts of old models I'd feel like an idiot buying this set. I have so much fun stuff to paint already - but the deal looks ok, if you have the dough. I could be tempted to buy the new shokkattack, but on the other hand, I have 2 of the old versions of that gun already...

Like what for instance? Nothing in that deal is useless really, only if you buy many.

I know! Like that box of boyz, that useless trukk, those ridiculous warbikes, and that new-fanggled shokk-attack gun. Oh! And we can't forget those tankbustaz! I mean, who fields tanks these days!

I feel as though they should have switched one HQ so either the wierdboy or Big Mek to another 10 boyz. Giving you 20 Boyz 10 for transport 10 on foot 1 HQ 2 elites and 1 fast attack switch 1 elite to a heavy support item then you get 1 of each which makes for a better start

Well, yes, that would have been sensible. But this isn`t an army deal we`re talking about; this is a "preview" of all the new stuff. It is by no means meant for someone who expects a completely legal army, or for someone who thinks that buying this box more often than once is a good idea.

Arguing which content would be better for this box from a gameplay POV is missing the point - the goal of this box is to show off a couple of the new models early, nothing more, nothing less. It isn`t an army deal (there will be one for sure), it isn`t a battleforce (there will be one, as well). It is a preview box, with one of all of the best new stuff (since I DO hope that there will be more new stuff - Im still hoping for plastic Gretchin and Kans...).

Cheers,
-Bone

This set is probably designed for old ork players looking to quickly get all the shiny toys quickly.
