Whew!

I’m normally an easy victim on the Gamer’s or Collector’s Edition of things… so I’m thankful that neither special pack of Apocalypse is the slightest bit interesting to me.

(Though I think they named them wrong: the Gamer’s Apocalypse is much more like the Collector’s version of their other stuff. Their Collector’s Apocalypse is kind of it’s own, weird thing.)

I did notice that they’ve got some Apocalypse bundles up, too: I think they were a key part of Apocalypse’s success the first time around (they all ran along the lines of “Who cares that I can never field 18 Piranha!  I get three of them free!”).  These, of course, meet the new standard for bundling, which is to say that they don’t save you a Sigmar-damned thing besides a few “Add to Cart” clicks. I really wish they’d get over that.

  • I was very disappointed with the Formations. Its essentially their “one click bundles” under a new name, formations. Really meh. I remember getting 3 whirlwinds and a Landspeeder for really cheap.

    I also like how their Gamer’s Bundle is only 50 bucks less than a Battlefoam 1520 custom load out. Yeah you get the apoc book and a nifty case, but its nowhere near the storage as you could get from the 1520. Usually I’m in the same boat as you when it comes to a collectors edition, but the gamers edition is meh and the collectors doesn’t seem all that worth it either.

    • And that case, while neat looking, looks shockingly impractical. “Let’s take a huge minis case… and make it even bigger with a bunch of flair on the outside! Brilliant!”

      When I saw the Collector’s edition had an A5 format Apocalypse… I got a little wood. I looooooove A5-sized books… but then I realized that it didn’t come with the full-sized book. If it’d been the book, the A5 book, and the other crap… I might have been in a little bit of danger.

      Also, Faeit reported that one of the formations is actually _more_ expensive than buying individual kits. Nuts!
