I was definatly agree with that. Its real cheap (50 US dollars) where as the rulebook by itself is 40. As a starter army, I would recommend Space Marines, Chaos, or Necrons, If you feel more comfortable withyour stratagy go with Imperial Gaurd, Tyranids (once you figgure out how to use them right they are unstoppable), or orks.

to start out with Space marines get (listed in priority) 1. Tactical squad 2.forcecommander 3.tactical saqud. 4.Terminators. 5.drednaught. OR 1.Buy the megaforce

if you want to start chaos, get the chaos version of the space marine stuff.

If you want to start necrons 1.box of warriors 2.necron lord. 3.box of warriors. 4.(5) immortals

i you want to start one of the other armies, just say so, becasue I dont wanna post them all.

Here is a link that tells avout all the different races. http://us.games-workshop.com/games/40K/default.htm

cool, i colect space marines, but just to let you know they are all tactical, only a few have mega bonus's (e.g space wolves can ahve lemins, deamon hunters can orby bombard) so if u want a tactical army, you;ve made the right choice, but if you want an army with an advantage choose another one, like necrons (for resurection)

The Imperial Guard "starter box" is real good. A lemun russ, 4 ig squads and 3? heavy weapons teams for $40-50 is a really good deal. Its not that hard to get current rulebooks second hand for like $5-15 so thats not that big of a deal. IG units seem cheap to me compared to other races. You can get 5 squads for the price of 1 of most races.

yes, but theres a reason for that, you can wipe out an imperial guard sqaud with bolt pistols, thats why they give you more than you moneys worth. its easy to see, 20 imp guard in a box, for same price you get 10 marines. thats the ONLY draw back of the guard, their save and weakness, but they make up for it big time in all other areas i think

$40-50, are you joking, i looked on the GW site and its £105 (not really sensical to match two currencies but oh well)

Yeah, stuff are REAL expensive over in Europe. I collect IG & its like €30 for a box set, which is like US$45 which is XPENSIVE!!! & the rulebook is €40, but I got mine second-hand €1.50! I'd recommend goin into a GW/hobby centre & askin someone abt collecting, thats what I did back yonder. They were REAL helpful. Just flick through the different Codexes & Rulebook & then decide. P/S. Guard ROCK!

Where do you live? This is NOT true. IG Battleforce costs $90-$75. And a rulebook costs $50-$90, so it is a big deal. IG are cheap which is why you see these armies with hundreds of Guardsmen. From what I've heard they suck at everything except for providing a human meatshield for heavier weapons to mow down the bigger enemies. If you're confused with all this £ $ € talk go here: http://www.xe.com/ucc/ It converts all these amounts for free.
