The rules for me will hinge on if they have the ongoing campaign rules, capturing territory, buying and selling equipment, earning experience, upgrading your troops or having injuries. 

 

But the terrain looks ideal and worth buying the box for alone.

The official 40k GW facebook commenter said that there is going to be campaign stuff included.  I hope its like old school Necromunda/Mordheim.  It might be worth buying 2 boxes just for the terrain. :)     

 

There are a couple new ork players in my gaming group that I could possibly sell the orks to and I can always use more Blood Angel scouts.  I need bolter and shotgun scouts, then I will have a squad with every weapon option.

As a former Necromunda player I am absolutely psyched about this!

I already have people wanting the orks.  :P  If the terrain is as cool as it looks and depending on the price of the box my plan is to split a 2nd box with someone else in my gaming group.  I would take the terrain and scouts and they can keep the orks, tokens, templates etc.  I might even troll ebay for a 3rd set of the terrain. :ph34r:

The terrain is great and calls for at least two sets. But this being the second boxed game with scouts makes me wonder if they have a slight overstock problem?
Ill give the orks to my pals and either ude the scouts for recons or add them to my inquisitorial retinue (scouts with cadian heads)
Most Legions have chaplains. Emperors Children have Colour Analysts.

What the f*** is wrong with GW!? Have they waited 15 years to open the "idea box" and decided to do/release everything in it in a 2 years timeframe?

This new game seems VERY exciting!

Scouts, perfect for 1ksons players.

 

Where is the Battlefleet Gothic release though!

Might get hold of a couple of boxes just for the terrain!

Looks like I will be able to build a promethium refinery centre piece with these and some pipes!

 

I wish they'd slow down, I can't keep up.

Still got loads of Death Guard to do, my alien jungle, 'normal' buildings and now this!

I've always fancied painting some Eldar, so I think this is the perfect excuse.
