Piggybacking off of the success of the Indomitus launch box (see " Games Workshop Unveils New 'Warhammer 40,000' Box Set"), Games Workshop quickly announced new starter sets aimed at different levels of involvement in the Warhammer 40,000 hobby. The three starter sets are scaled from Recruit Edition to Command Edition, allowing players to choose the amount of rules and miniatures they desire to get started with.
Recruit Edition comes with the bare bones to play the game. The game box contains a handful of miniatures, dice, range rulers, a mat, and a Recruit Manual which has each unit's datasheet and basic rules. Elite Edition is a larger commitment to the and features a greater swath of units, which include a Necron Overlord and a Primaris Captain miniature.
The Command Edition, the biggest starter set, comes with all of the miniatures found in the Elite Edition as well as a mat and a full set of the rules. The highlight of this box is that it comes with 3D terrain pieces to enhance the battlefield, and a set of six missions to engage players in the gameplay!
No word on MSRP or firm release date for these sets thus far.
