Warhammer 40,000 Battleforces for the holidays revealed
It’s that time of year and Games Workshop has revealed 2022’s Battleforces for Warhammer 40,000. This year features eight battle boxes, of which there appear to be no xenos… intriguing… Also standing out is the inclusion of named characters in every box and the lack of boxes for recent releases like generic Chaos Space Marines, Chaos Daemons, and the League of Voltann.
Retail prices for the boxes is currently unknown but we’ve included what the retail value of each box. Expect the box to be some savings.
