Default Battle For Skull Pass

I picked up the latest U.S. White Dwarf today (Issue 320/September 2006), and saw this boxed set preview, where the Night Goblins fight the Dwarves in a one on one battle for territory. First off, any of you guys thinking of starting up on this boxed set, or playing the battle?

Also, the White Dwarf also comes with two of the models (1 Night Goblin and one Dwarf):

im going to get the box. even though i played 40k for over 5 years i still have no templates :P and as i just started fantasy, using skaven, i can get the new rules there, aswell as starting a small dwarf army. i will trade the goblins for the dwarf though, to get double amount of dwarfs, Warwolt the engineer, gets double goblins. hehe

Got the some more colourful pictures of the models. Here's a picture of the Dwarf (WIP), the Goblin is a little too small to take a picture of with my camera.

I ordered 2 of these boxes. I'm planning on playing goblins with as many snotling pump wagons and goblin chariot things for those delicious impact hits.

GW are doing a 'swap shop' or something so I can get 1000 points of gobbos. 8) ;D

my club will be getting a box aswell as BoM so we can teach new peeps that might not have an army yet.

i dnt think my GW is doing a swap shop but they have invited local clubs to come along and learn the new rules next week, we're getting a leaflet with juts the new and changed rules, quite handy eh?? and i thought the manager didnt like clubs, or at least us, but we wew proven wrong

I will be buying one or two boxes... I have a gobbo army that seriously needs models, and I have a dwarf army that... has too many hideous 6th ed dwarfs to paint... And I'll be giving the pocket rulebooks to friends since I'll be getting mine with the gamers edition.

I'm not painting the 6th ed models anymore because they are completely horrid... I'll leave it at that (And I may throw them into skaven slave units as a cheap way to bring them up in size)
