Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw

Sanctus Reach: Stromclaw
The email came in last night for the preorder of the latest box set for the Sanctus Reach campaigns. Games Workshop's latest model release is the box set called Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw. Even before the release of the latest 7th Edition rules Games Workshop has been on a releasing rampage of models both old and new.

With Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw we see a change in what Games Workshop is releasing, this isn't just a starter set, this a campaign (well, a partial one) in a box. When Games Workshop releases a starter set we normally see two 500 or so point armies, that are not optimal and that are not balanced, and of course you get a small rule book. And most players buy and split the models, for their respective armies. Here Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw goes all in with a part of a campaign, the units are set the missions are outlined in a 32 page campaign book included. Now since this is on preorder we haven't had the opportunity to see how balanced everything is nor do we have the opportunity to review the models (expect to see that in the future). The price point for this box set is great at $125 (USD), we don't expect this to last we expect this to go up in time.

Expect more of these box sets going forward. For some of us these are going to be split with other players to advance their armies. But for some these will be collection pieces where players can spend an evening playing through this part of the Sanctus Reach campaigns.

Let us know what you think. Cleveland keep the dice rolling.
