It's going for $4 in the U.S. on Amazon at the moment. The other two pieces are available at Five Below for $5 apiece. So you can get in on the full set for just $14, and it's a pretty doggone good game, especially with all three pieces of the set in the mix.


STOP posting ridiculous prices where us non-US bods can see.


That was a typo. $400.

Alright, knocking it around on Amazon, I see that I can ship this item plus another item (I need a total purchase of $25 or more) to an address in Devizes England I found on the Internet for $19.43 shipping. I don't know what happens in Customs if it even passes through Customs. Is that what you're seeing from your end?

Played on Amazon a bit more -- Innistrad and Zendikar shipped to an English address for $58.44 including shipping ($14.24). This assumes it clears customs unscathed. That's about £43 for both. Not cheap, but not awful either.


Customs gets you here, and they also add the postage to the value before calculating.

We can get the base game and Zendikar for a reasonable 'special' price here, cheaper than the 'post from the US' option (I got a couple of bases for a decent price for what you get in the box), it is Innistrad that I had to pay a lot more for and it just isn't available at all here now.

I often wish there was an underground board game smuggling network that used Math-trade-style software to connect travelers and gamers. Every time you delivered a game to somewhere like Australia or Costa Rica, you would get some kind of abstract reward from the computer that tracked everything.

I guess BGG does that, but at some point the wages were too depressed to be worth my not-that-valuable time.

Oh, Spartacus is ON SALE

Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks already hitting deep discount on Coolstuffinc. $24.99. Barnes and Nate give it a pass despite its flaws, I was left underwhelmed, but YMMV.

Anyone that enjoys Doctor Who will get $25 of fun out of this one, easily.

Michael: which do you think is more useful for getting started with AoS: General's Handbook 2017 (we will probably be playing sans points for a while and the group might have a copy), Sigmarite Mausoleum for terrain, more base army units for variety, or some allied units?

I'm leaning towards the Mausoleum because I think it looks cool and I just got a lot of figures for KO so I think I am probably good, but... I never know.

I think you will want GHB unless there is a shared copy. I think you would want the Battletome for what you are playing first. The Mausoleum is great and it is a TON of terrain- but it’s also pretty specific to a graveyard. There are some statues and walls that can flex elsewhere though. Who are you playing? That may determine what units to pick up.

I have the Battletome and a lot of units on the way (two battleforces, plus some odds and ends) for Kharadron Overlords. I got a sweet deal from my FLGS. I'll be a few units short of the full meta-battalion, which I would complete with the Start Collecting set.

I do not have any terrain, but the FLGS has a few forests (otherwise the terrain is 40K heavy).

We will be working through Path to Glory for a while and I have the FAQ and updated battlescroll for the Thunderers.

Have a look at the new Azyrite Ruins stuff...there is a battle mat (cardboard) that comes with the terrain pieces, it’s just like the Moonbase Klasius thing so it is highly recommended. The Ruins alone are only like $25 or something.

Do you have the unit cards? They are well worth having and you also get Kharadron tokens.
