Hello Alliance! As a new player to the hobby (plastic crack they call it ) i started with a small box called a Storm of Sigmar. My thoughts were- let's try it. It's cheep, there are some different units, two armies (so i thought) - all cool. In the perspective my opinion on Storm of Sigmar are quite negative. Sure its cheep and easy way to jump in AoS but in very limited way. Sure it's good if you are thinking SKIRMISH. But if you want to start regular army there are numerous issues. First of all you dont get any unit in numbers you need to feel requirements of warscrolls- 5 blood reavers? and then what? you missing next 5! Ok You can buy another Easy to build set but then another problem pop up- the whole unit looks the same. I know this is not necessarily a issue for some players but for me is a little disaster . I guess you can buy some miniatures on eBay... but.... As i mention all units are missing miniatures for a normal AoS units. Buing next 4 Easy to Build boxes rises price of SoS too high IMO But Storm of Sigmar is in the past. It serves it purpose. Now the BIG Starter set. I think the value is outstanding!! For all the goodies you get price between 55 - 65 (third part retailer) is brilliant. but again it is without issues. First of all, since rules are free, you actually don't need the rule book (except for all fluff) and it's targeting only players who wants to play poster boys Still awesome value! A lot Blood for a Blood GOD!!! There is still Thunder & Blood and i find this is the starter i should start! You got heroes full warscroll units. Sure it got issue with ETB units looking like f****ng clones but it is great. Plus i think (i hope more experienced players will agree will agree with me) it is a great addition to a big starter. What are your thoughts on starters??
