Breaking Down Warhammer 40,000 Conquest’s Rumoured Contents and Value

Update: The image below showing off the collection can now be found on the Warhammer 40,000: Conquest site. As a result, I have removed a paragraph concerning speculation over the inclusion of the terrain as part of the standard or premium subscription. Looks like it’s all in there, fellow hobbyists! It is also worth noting that the numbers below are estimates based on the cheapest possible alternative. Some of the miniatures I figured as Easy To Build may in fact be the completely poseable versions. 

Two days ago I wrote about Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, its return and what it might contain. We’ve had a few hours since then, some from Hachette and Games Workshop themselves, and some from exceptional internet sleuthing. Part of which gives me the chance to present you with an estimated value of the entire thing. So let’s dive in to the new stuff that we know and then, finally, get to the full value of the set as we know it.

The Warhammer 40,000: Conquest website now confirms that the series will run for 80 issues. Sounds good and sounds like Hachette’s normal method. That means, with some math culled from yesterday, the roughly £625 cost of the collection still stands, assuming you subscribe straight away.

But wait. There’s more. Sorry about that. I’ve been watching lots of infomercials recently. Don’t judge me. Continue reading →

A Closer, Speculative Look at the Warhammer 40,000: Conquest Partwork

Back in March, Warhammer 40,000: Conquest (not the Fantasy Flight Games Living Card Game) strode into the zeitgeist of Warhammer 40,000 players throughout the United Kingdom for a hot minute. It came, flourished, then folded back into insignificance when demand outstripped supply. Today, those who to subscribed to the service originally, myself being one, received emails saying that the service was back on track and ready for national release on August 29th 2018. Myself and those early subscribers now face a dilemma, as do prospective future folks planning to join in on the partwork. Do we sign up, or let Warhammer 40,000: Conquest pass us by?

So let’s have a closer look at Warhammer 40,000: Conquest. How much is it? Will the service bring the kinds of savings one might hope? Where will things with the subscription go in the near and not so grim, dark future? Let’s take look. Get your speculation glasses on.

Before I go any further, I must clarify something. Hachette have neither shown nor announced concrete plans to expand the service beyond UK borders. Sorry America, Canada, Europe, and everybody else hungry for a postal dose of hobby each month. They do however state that they’re looking to bring Warhammer 40,000: Conquest to other territories though so keep those fingers crossed.
