Alright, Privateer Press have just revealed their new Warmachine Mark II versions of the ‘battlegroup’ starter boxes.
The price is the same as before (although the minis have gotten a little bigger). The big thing that none of us expected is that the whole thing is made out of plastic.
Yep, not only does the box contain the new plastic version of the Slayer, but it also has new plastic Deathrippers, Defilers and- most shocking of all- a plastic Denegra.
I can see why this makes financial sense- the battle boxes have always been underpriced to get people started in the game, and the low start up cost has always been a strong selling point for Warmachine.
It is kind of a shock that there are any plastic warcasters, but if they keep doing plastic kits that look this good, I don’t think it is a problem.
Now, I wonder if those plastic light ‘jacks are going to be sold separately. I really prefer the new Lancer and Charger to the old ones.
