A new edition of Warhammer 40,000 is here and it’s a great time to get into the game or start a new collection. However, building up an entire army in 40k can be a bit of a daunting prospect – especially considering the cost in both money and time.

This translates into a compact collection of around a couple squads, a character or two and maybe a vehicle.

In this series, we’re taking a look at all 25 Start Collecting boxes available for 40k, and evaluating just how useful they are when building a Combat Patrol. We’re using Power here to compare the different boxes (just to keep things simple) but building your list with points instead will still come out quite similar. The values used here are also from the recently published Power level updates, so these should all be up to date with the latest info.

This one involves being captured by bandits on a train and having to escape the cell, uncouple the train cars, unmask the leader and fix the train so it can slow down before crashing. It was a fun one!”
