Hello everyone !!
Tomorrow are released 3 new Starters set for AOS.
GW sent me an Extremis Box of the starter (the biggest). The box is 105£ on GW UK but you can get it for 84£ on Element games
The box contain :
All models are the ones from Dominion and are push-fit
- 10x Hobgrot Slittaz: These malicious little brutes delight in eviscerating the foe with their slitta-knives and employing explosive devices pilfered from their duardin paymasters.
Duardin Paymasters ^^
5 Neat Pieces of Scenery are included, all push-fit !!
- 1x Nexus syphon
- 1x Guardian idol
- 2x Domicile shells
- 1x Pile of pillars
Considering that the models included are the same as the Harbringer box costing only 65£ you pay 40£ for these.
Note that the sceneries inside are not available outside this box right now...
The Cardboard Battlefield included in the box is 22" * 30" so you need 3 more to play at 2K points. Weird when you think about it...you need an odd number of boards to have a full set ^^
Luckily daddy GW has the perfect shopping road planned for you :
Realmscape: Ghurish Expanse : 30£ , include 2 22"*30" cardboard board..
Extremis Edition – Realmscape Expansion Set: 55£, include 5 scenery pieces and one 22"*30" cardboard.
All these have the same styles and are double-faced so everything is compatible... Quite costly for cardboard as you need 85£ after the extremis set for having a nice battlefield. ... It's not a great deal but at least is a rational path set for the customer...
Honestly, it would be a lot better if the model's selection for Extremis set was better for Orks and SCE then it would combine better with dominion ...
It's not all dark, the exclusive scenery inside the box are very cool looking ... I started painting the Nexus Syphon and it's a very nice and thematic little temple!
Yes, it's a Starter and only a starter...If you are already playing AOS this box is not for you unless you really want these sceneries. If you don't play AOS yet, Get a dominion Box while you can and split it with a friend if you are fine playing Orks or Stormcast Eternals...
If you want to offer a box to a duo so they can start playing it's a good choice. It's less expensive than Dominion and has all the stuff you need to play and fewer models to assemble.
That's it for the Extremis review...
The Extremis set was freely sent by GW
