Start Collecting! Question

Post#1 » Jul 31 2017 12:53

Hi!
I'm just beginning collecting T'au Empire and I'm wondering if Start Collecting! box containes all parts from Fire Warriors, XV8 Crisis Battlesuits and ethereal on hover drone? The price is much lower so I thought they won't put everything in there. So is Start Collecting! set like 3 units mentioned above but at lower price? Is there anything different? Is it worth it?

Yes, the SC box contains all sprues and bitz you'd get by buying the units seperately. It's great value and I recommend anyone buying it at least once if not even twice.

Didn't you already ask this? Anyway, the "Start Collecting!" box contains all the parts from the ordinary Fire Warriors box, the ordinary XV8 Battlesuit box, and an Ethereal on Hover Drone (you can assemble him without the Drone if you like, though). Anyway, the "Start Collecting!" box is just 3 full sets, at a cheaper price! :D

Does it include bits for breachers as well? Or just strike teams?

It is exactly the same as a current firewarrior box so yes, it has bits for breacher and strike teams.

No worries, I do the same (though I just skim through most list building and Water Caste threads) and yeah I noticed the same question twice as well. :P

Yup and it pairs well with the start collecting box since you'll want a devilfish to deliver your Breachers, and pathfinders to mark up their targets.

Yeah that box is just the same as a Devilfish + a Pathfinder box. No savings to be found there unless your local shop decided to reduce the price on its own.
But it has all the bitz the regular boxes would come with.

Generally ALL combi-boxex GW sells have all the bitz of the seperate boxes. The only exceptions are the starter boxes of each edition (not Start Collecting!) and the ones where two factions face off against eachother (not Death from the Skies!) since those models are easy-to-build or snapfit models which you can't buy otherwise.
Oh and the specialist games like Space Hulk etc. of course.

That ain't correct.
(on Setting Netherlands) on the GW online store:
Pathfinder Team: 25,- Euro
Devilfish: 30,- Euro
Optimised Pathfinder team: 42,50 Euro
That saves 12,50 Euro

Huh that's interesting. Last time I checked (which is a few months ago I admit) the US and German prices didn't offer any discount for the combi-box.

So checked german and US sites now.
German is same as the Dutch (Netherlands)
US is pathfinders 35 + devilfish 38 = $73
Optimised pathfinder team = $55 (sold out online / No longer available.. though), so saving $18
