Warhammer AoS 2021 Battleforce Boxes - Price & Savings Breakdown - Featured

Well, we thought it wouldn’t happen this year. Rumours started to fly and then we saw the Festive buying guide released in Warhammer stores across the nation. There would be no Battleforce Boxes in 2021. yet lo-and-behold just this week (and not on a Sunday Preview) Warhammer Community announced the Warhammer Age of Sigmar 2021 Battleforces. We’ll cover the 40k Boxes in a Separate Article.

Warhammer AoS 2021 Battleforce Boxes

If you’re new to the hobby or have recently returned, let me do a quick explainer. Each year (for the last memorable few) Games Workshop has released a selection of Battleforce Boxes each year. In lieu of any kind of Black Friday sales (or any sales for that matter) These boxes represent some of the biggest savings you can get direct from Gee-Dubs (and their FLGS partners).

However, with great savings comes great demand. Last year the battle boxes sold out in minutes. and this year, we have that pesky shipping delays and stock shortages thing to worry about.

Warhammer Community announced back with the release of Kill Team: Octarius, that going forward they would be offering “made-to-order” options with all of their major releases – will this extend to the Christmas Exclusive Battleforce Boxes? Hope so, but I don’t it. Sorry.

Get ready to charge screaming through the virtual door at 10 am on release day to beat your fellow hobbyists to these deals.

Warhammer AoS 2021 Battleforce Boxes – Release Date

Update: Warhammer Community team have confirmed that these will be available for preorder on December 4th 2021.

December 2021 – and sorry if that’s not 100% clear. All we have to go on right now is the few words the community team have put out.

The post says

These mammoth Battleforces are to be stuffed into delivery cannons near you very soon, so keep an eye on Warhammer Community for more information

Warhammer Community

The post about 40k Bbattleboxes was a bit more specific.

“All six of these battleforces are coming this December, so stay tuned to Warhammer Community for more details. “

Warhammer Community

Hmm, Well what can we infer from this? “Coming in December” could either mean they are up for preorder in December or released in December (or both)

We also know that pre-orders go live at 10 am on Saturday Mornings, usually a week before release (but there are a few occasions, normally big boxed game releases, where there’s a 2-week preorder window). With so little of the year left there are only a few dates to keep in mind for preorder.

  • November 20th 2021 – Unlikely, it’s too soon and we know we still have Shadow Throne coming this year.
  • November 27th 2021 – Possible –
  • December 4th 2021 – I have my money on this being the preorder week.
  • December 11th 2021 – Possible but I think it’s too late in the year.
  • December 18th 2021 – If they were up for preorder on this date, the release day would be Christmas Day.

This does make me wonder where the long-rumoured GW (not Forgeworld) Horus Heresy box is going to fit in now? Probably in the new year?

Don’t forget we still have Krondys & Karazai coming too!

Let me know what date you think in the comments, we’ll update you when we know more.

Warhammer AoS 2021 Battleforce Boxes – Price & Savings

Update: Some prices have been revealed online. Both Valrak and Foyble have done a breakdown. (massive thanks to these hobby heroes). We have updated the article below and will continue to do so, but please treat these as indicative only, untl the prices have been formally revealed

Once again we don’t know right now. and we probably won’t know until the pre-order day. Last year’s boxes cost £120-£125 ($200-$210 USD) Which was a rough 8% – 13% increase on 2019’s forces.

Based on that experience we could be looking at prices up to £145 ($240 USD) perhaps even more.

Below is a summary of the value from each box, Which is fairly on par with 2020’s boxes.

Soulblight Gravelords – Revenant Legion £184.50$290.00€230.00$488.00
Hedonites of Slaanesh – Sybarite Blade-Carnival £196.50$315.00€247.50$523.00

Ossiarch Bonereapers – Mortisan Tithe-Echelon £180.00$300.00€235.00$504.00

Savings wise, we’re once again looking at last year where we had anything from 25% – 37% in savings for these boxes versus buying the units individually at retail. That’s Nothing to sniff at!

So let’s take a look at the individual forces and the Value in each box.

2021 Battleforce – Soulblight Gravelords – Revenant Legion (Contents, Price, Value & Savings)

You have a skeleton, and you have a skeleton. Everybody gets a skeleton. and a ton of zombies.

This is the largest Battleforce of 2021 if we are looking purely at the number of models. Though this set has 40 zombies. 40! that’s near enough 20 twins. Sure it’s a lot of models, but as a painter, this is the last thing I want.

Still a massive force and a great way to start an army.

Warhammer AoS 2021 Battleforce Boxes Final Thoughts

Woah, where’s the Stormcast at? GW has been pushing their Fantasy Space Marines down our throats since Age of Sigmar came out. Before that even, as they gave one model away free with a copy of White Dwarf. With the soft relaunch of the army that arrived with Dominion and all the follow-up models. now would be a prime time to throw a ton of these models at people in the form of a battle box. So what Gives? Do they want us Stormcast collectors keeping money in our pockets ready to snap up the new Dragons.

Because we’d buy both.

Give us both!

The jury is out on the value of these as we haven’t seen the prices yet, but anything in the ballpark of last year makes these sets a steal.

Just be very aware that stock will be limited and we have no indication of these being part of the made-to-order approach from GW. So be there with your cash ready on the morning of preorder. And don’t forget you can save even more (like 20% more) by buying these from your local (or online) FLGS.

Oh, here’s a massive list of just such places below……
