Much like the previous edition, Games Workshop will be releasing three starter sets for Warhammer 40,000 aimed at different commitments to the game and an escalation of interest. The previous three boxes seemed like a success breaking out of local game stores and finding shelf space at more mainstream retailers.

All three sets are different ways to enter the world of Warhammer 40,000 but also an easy way to expand armies for veteran players. The previous three sets went for $40, $80, and $160. It’s unknown if these three sets will keep similar price points.
