Since the publication of the 9th edition of Warhammer 40,000, it seems that grim wargame boxing sets were hard to come by. Now Publisher Games Workshop gives an unusual guarantee: In a News item On Monday, the company promised anyone who pre-orders a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team: Octarius it will actually be possible to get one next weekend.
Compared to other publishers, Games Workshop’s publishing rhythm differs a little. First, the company will be announcing a new box set, usually with a zippy one follower
The problem is that overly rabid fans and seasoned scalpers know all too well how to play the system, resulting in box sets that sell out within minutes to only show up in the secondary market. It got so bad with the start of Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus that GW tried to make up for this by accepting print-on-demand jobs for more than two months. Now it is effectively continuing that policy.
“We know we’ve let you down in the past,” GW said on Monday, “so we’ll do something about it right away. This weekend, Games Workshop is making a promise to all buyers Killing Team: Octarius during the pre-order weekend – we guarantee you a copy. Simple! So don’t hesitate to answer the doorbell or take your cat downstairs knowing you won’t have to scour the internet and pay a dirty scalper a cut just to get the latest boxing set. “
We still don’t know how much Octarius will cost, but we expect it to drop to around $ 150. Fortunately, the content is well worth the effort. It’s a complete fresh start to the small-unit skirmish game, and vastly expands the narrative scope of Games Workshop for Kill Team. Details for pre-ordering on Saturday at the Games Workshop website Rollout across international time zones is expected later this week.
