Games Workshop has revealed a new Age of Sigmar army bundle box set, Spearhead: Stormcast Eternals, via a Warhammer Community post on Monday. The bundle contains sixteen miniatures, including several that are currently only available direct from Games Workshop, and the post states that “plenty of other factions” will receive their own Spearhead box set.
So far Games Workshop has not revealed the price point for this new kind of Age of Sigmar bundle. But the composition of Spearhead: Stormcast Eternals – a large model, a battleline unit, an elite unit, and two characters – is very similar to what you’d find in a Vanguard box set, and those are priced at $140 (£85).
Spearhead: Stormcast Eternals contains sixteen miniatures, consisting of:
- Yndrasta, the Celestial Spear x 1
- Knight Vexillor x 1
- Vanquishers x 10
- Annihilators x 3
- Stormstrike Chariot x 1
Age of Sigmar Vanguard box sets, and Warhammer 40k Combat Patrol boxes, are entry-point products intended to entice new customers into their respective games with bundles of minis. It’s possible that Spearheads will simply replace Vanguard boxes, but Games Workshop has not given any indication that this is the case.
Wargamer is confident that Age of Sigmar fourth edition will release this Summer. If we’re right, these new Spearhead boxes might be a limited-run item released for the end of the current edition, in a similar way to the Warhammer 40k Boarding Patrol bundles available at the end of Warhammer 40k ninth edition.
Several of the models in this box set don’t have general retail availability. Yndrasta, the Knight Vexillor, and the monopose Annihilators were all part of the Dominion launch box for Age of Sigmar third edition. After that they were available in the direct-order only Thunderstrike Command set.
