Default Da Green Tide Box Set

I was wondering, if as a new ork player, if the Da Green Tide Box Set, was really worth it?
It retails for 175.00 USD, and comes with 100 multi-part plastic warriors, and a metal Warboss, so is it really worth it? Or would I be better off buying piecemeal over time, through things like ebay and my local hobby store...

Well that depends...do you NEED all the boyz? If you only need a few then by all means just get a box or 2 of Boyz...

I may pick it up eventually just for the extra Bitz and to give me something to do...also to spruce up some of my apoc. games.

If you buy it your definately getting a bang for your buck, but it all depends on whether da Boyz are an elemtary part of your army

Well da boyz are definately a big focuse of my list, its actually the exact number of boyz I need for a list, I have alot of 2nd and 3rd edition Orks, that I've taken from other peoples box sets, when you used to get Space Marines and Orks, and I like them, but I'd prefer to use them in a fluffier army build, and would like to start fresh fresh with this, my second Army in the world of 40k.

I think the Green Tide is the greatest deal out there. Like $2.00 a boy vs the normal $3.50. Of course I enjoy fielding 1500pts of pure Greenskins.

But once again I ask do they come with 10 Nobs or did the Nob sprues get excluded from the set?

Hyena, when this first came around on the UK site a few months ago, we decided as a whole that it was the new boyz. If you look closely in the picture you can see GeeDub's new plastic Nobz and the boyz with Big Shootas and Rokkit aren't too hard to pick out, either.

Here's a link to the original topic.

On the topic of weather or not to buy it, I would in a heartbeat if I really needed them. Even now I'm horribly tempted to because it seems blasphamous to pass up such a good deal. As Gabriel said, normal it's three and a half bucks per boy but with this it's something like a dollar and seventy-five cents. It's hard to argue with half price.

But also as has been said, I'd only buy it if you think you'll use it. If your list has ten boyz in a trukk and is otherwise bikers and nobz, I'd reccomend you consider just buying a normal box of ten boyz. :P

Hope that helped,

-Grandpa Ducky
