    You make a very valid point. Can I change my vote? I'd like to swap it to Beastmen vs Wood Elves. That's a pretty classic match-up, and neither army has been featured. Unless they bring Kislev back as a separate army - then Chaos (To clarify: any kind of Chaos but I would prefer Chaos Warriors) vs Kislev.

    I would totally buy a Chaos Warriors versus Kislevites Box Set. Even if the new game ultimately was a flop. In the End you have to just like the Miniatures.

    So I guess there is your answer: Kislev & WoC.

    Kislev & Chaos Warriors

    Just considering what the contents and possibilities of such a box might be. Chaos has invaded Kislev so many times they would be spoiled for choice on when to set it in history.

    A Chaos Spawn
    12 Chaos Warriors
    5 Marauder Horse

    An Ice Beast
    5 Winged Lancers
    20 Kislevite Axemen

    One Hero each side: maybe a L2 Kislevian Ice Witch and a Exalted L1 Hero?

    Rule Cards for all units and the Ice Witches’ Frost spells.

    Scenario booklet with battle setups from three or four different eras on the Old Wyrld timeline.

    That is a boxed set that would allow them to make the point that this NewOldhammer can be used for a battle almost anywhen during the history of the WFB world. (If they wanted to take that approach.)

    I like this idea, but perhaps we should make it more balanced? How about:

    Exalted Champion on Beast of Chaos
    12 Chaos Warriors
    5 Marauder Horse

    vs

    Boyar on Great Bear
    20 Kisletive Kossars (great axe + bow)
    5 Winged Lancers or Ungol Horse Archers (seriously, it wouldn't be too hard to make a box that has the options for both of these. Separate armor plates for legs is easy, separate heads is easy; Selection of arms would be some armored, some not. Only tricky part is the torsos since Lancers need armor and Ungol don't?)

    I like these polls! I already took two of the ones that @NIGHTBRINGER did, this one was also fun.

    I am taking "wishlist" approach to this one. The box sets I remember are:

    - Bretonnia vs. Lizardmen

    Games-Workshop-Warhammer-5th-Edition-Boxed-Game-BNIB.jpg

    - Empire vs. Orcs/Goblins

    Games-Workshop-Warhammer-empire and orcs.jpg

    - Dwarfs vs. Orcs/Goblins

    Games-Workshop-Warhammer-skull pass.jpg

    - High Elves vs. Skaven

    Games-Workshop-Warhammer-island of blood.jpg

    I would LOVE to see the revival of Bretonnia and Tomb Kings heralded by a triumphant new double box set of the fearless Bretonnian cavalry charging across the deserts of Araby against the Tomb King chariots and skeletal infantry. That would have the potential for so much lore and awesomeness and really bring to life a part of the Old World lore and the crusades and stuff...


    ...BUT I doubt that one will happen, too much potential for political issues probably, and it would involve GW bringing back TWO new factions at once.

    I would also love to see a revival of the Dwarfs vs. Goblins box set, I always wanted to buy that one. If they brought back the Bretonnians a revival of the Bretonnia vs. Lizardmen box set would also be pretty cool!

    Much more likely than my Tomb Kings vs. Chaos Dwarfs! :D:D

    Which might actually be a brilliant tactic to signal to players that this game is a genuine continuation of WFB. It would also distinguish it from AoS. IF they were going to bring both Bretonnia and Tomb Kings back, featuring them in the starter box together would be a pretty good idea.

    True, it would be pretty cool to see these two factions clash in a desert-themed box and I would love to see it. More likely we will see empire vs. chaos :meh:.

    Although Lizardmen vs. Daemons of chaos would be pretty sweet :wideyed:, could call it the Battle of Itza or Fall of Temple City X or whatever name. Would be pretty thematic for sure.


    Edit: Previous post now includes photos. Also went and found your previous post with the list, awesome!
