Unboxing: Hordes Legion of Everblight MK3 (MKIII) Battlegroup Starter Box

Hordes Legion of Everblight MK3 (MKIII) Battlegroup Starter Box
I have been waiting for this for awhile now, and so happy that I was finally able to get my hands on one.  To start of my new MK3 upgrade of my armies, I decided to start on the Hordes side and get the Legion of Everblight Battlegroup kit.  Ever since the announcement of the new edition I have been anxiously waiting to get my hands on the first kits.  Those that were lucky enough to attend this years Lock and Load were able to get the new sets before they are released June 29th.

So, lets rip open this box and take a look at what inside:

The contents of th box are as follows:

  • 5 Models - and thier cards
    • Warlock: Kryssa, Conviction of Everblight
    • Heavy Warbeast: Neraph
    • Light Warbeast: Nephilim Bolt Thrower
    • Light Warbeast: Shredders x2
  • Basic Training Tutorial Guide
  • Battle Play Map - 2-Sided
  • Introductory Guide
  • Hordes: Primal Rules Digest
    • Mini rulebook, has all the rule and none of the flush
  • 18" Flexible/Paper Ruler
  • 4 Six-Sided Dice
  • 15 Fury Tokens
  • 3 Spell Tokens
  • Obstacle Card - Fold up rock wall to use as terrain

I love the new colored plastics they are using for each army faction, nice to see some color on the table if you decide not to paint you models right away.  Makes it easier to tell the two forces apart that way when you are first starting out.

Below is a few more shots I took of the box contents.

Closer look are the card, tokens and colored plastic minatures.
Very nice of them to include the full rules with each starter set.
This is nice for new players, great step-by-step approach to learning the basics.
 I will be of course doing a follow-up post when I have built the models, and then will go over a little about their stats, etc.

Until next time, keep on gaming and always have fun doing it.
