Product Review 2: High Elf and Skaven Army Bundles by GW

It wouldn’t be fair not to review the Warhammer Fantasy Battles equivalent of The Megaforce (40K). I’ll go through each of the 2 and provide price comparisons and comments on the models involved.

Value Comment:

Again, great value item here for anyone wanting to start a High Elf Army, lots of special choices included which are real value for your dollar. I think there might be a few Dragons, White Lions and Dragon Princes available on ebay soon…

Pros: Lots of special choices if you want to play a really elite army. Lots of Spearmen! Chariot a great choice.

Cons: Not sure about all the Archers… give me more Spearmen! Oh and too many White Lions… aren’t they meant to be the Phoenix King’s guards? Who’s guarding him then…

40 Clanrats $110.00

20 Plague Monks $55.00

2 Rat Ogres with Packmaster $60.00

6 Giant rats with Packmasters $0.00 Included above

Value Comment:

This is by and far the most competitive Army Bundle available. With 2 of these, any player has enough troops to field and has all the goodies that Skaven have to play with.

Pros: Everything is good. I particularly like the Plague Monks as they go well with a Plague Furnace. A Warlord can even be converted from all the Stormvermin bits and a Plague Priest from the Plague Monks.

Cons: The only thing missing is a Warlock Engineer, and maybe a Doomwheel… but otherwise good stuff.
