Do you need to get second boxes of warbands?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I haven't played a game of this yet, but I am wondering how necessary second boxes of the core Warbands are to play a campaign with? Can you get by with 1 or do you really need to get a second? The Warbands I'm interested in are the Splintered Fang and Corvus Cabal.

Thanks.

One box gives you a working warband right out of the box. If you get the Warcry brand box you get the cards for the models as well in the box. If you get the AoS brand ones though you get 2 sprues (basically two warbands). Of course the AoS ones cost more (but less than two warcry single band boxes) and you don't get the game cards - which are helpful when playing and quicker to use than referring to the book. 

 

Of course to build more varied warbands you might want a second box; or even more. It really depends how you want to build your band and what you want it to do.

Simply put, one box makes a functional 1k point warband. If you wanna try other builds, perhaps more little guys or more elite, then you need more boxes. For example, the snakes in the splintered fang are considered a top tier troops for their speed, weight of attacks, and high spike damage all for 65 points. Sure they can’t take a hit but when a str 4 dude hits at your t3 or t2 dudes, they just the same, so you end up wasting points on the toughness that didn’t matter anyways.

How realistic is it to use all of the models in the second box? Or do you only end up using about half of it?

Depends how big the games are you play; though in general you'll be more buying a second or third box for options rather than putting all the models down. Of course that assumes you're playing standard pick-up warcry games of the 1K level. 

If you play bigger games in that and/or in AoS with a Slaves to Darkness army you'll use more to all of the models.

If you play only warcry, it is very probably you will use only half of the second box

The AOS boxes are going online only so this is my last chance to buy them from my flgs. I already own the cards, I got them from a bit site when the AOS boxes were released with the idea of buying them later. 

£80 is a lot for a game I haven't played yet and most likely will only use just over half the models though.  I'll just take a hit on those cards, they weren't that much. One box seems fine for me.

Thanks for the help.
