Games Workshop is changing the way they handle major pre-orders Warhammer: 40,000 and other versions of miniatures games. In an article posted to the Warhammer community site earlier this week, Games Workshop guaranteed that anyone who orders a copy of the next Kill Team: Octarius boot box will receive a copy. This is a noticeable departure from previous versions of Starter Boxes, where copies sold out in hours or even minutes due to a combination of high demand and scalpers. Additionally, Games Workshop also noted that they are “looking for ways” to make sure fans don’t run out of other upcoming launch boxes or starter boxes, which seems to imply that they are considering expanding. this guarantee to other major War hammer released.
There are a few caveats to this warranty. Preorders will continue to be on a first come, first serve basis, but it could take months for fans to receive their copy if Games Workshop runs out of its initial stock for the. Kill Team: Octarius box. They promised that fans will get their copy of the Starter Box (which usually includes a number of miniatures at a reduced price compared to buying the miniatures by mail), but it could still take fans some time to get them. get. There’s still some incentive to jump into the Games Workshop virtual queue this weekend, but you won’t be stuck with FOMO if you can’t log in within minutes of uploading. pre-orders.
the Kill Team: Octarius box is the launch box for the new edition of Warhammer 40,000: Kill the team, a game derived from Warhammer 40,000. Unlike full Warhammer 40,000, Kill Team focuses on small-scale combat, with players controlling individual characters instead of an entire army. This means that players don’t need to invest as much money in miniatures to play Kill Team as they would a traditional game of. Warhammer 40,000. In fact, the Launcher Box is probably all you need to jump right into a game of Kill the team, although you can customize your team with other minifigures from past and current editions.
Pre-orders for the Kill Team: Octarius box is online this Saturday.
