New Cities of Sigmar and Flesh-eater Courts Spearhead Boxes – Are They Worth It?

New Cities of Sigmar and Flesh-eater Courts Spearhead Boxes have been revealed, and they look like a steal – but are they worth it?

Spearhead boxes are a new type of kit coming to Warhammer Age of Sigmar. The Stormcast Eternals were the first faction to have theirs released, but now the Cities of Sigmar and the Flesh-Eater Courts will also get one. These boxes provide an excellent addition to any player that has an existing force, but as they contain the newer miniatures from both factions, it can also be a good starting point for all. But are the new Spearheads worth it?

Cities of Sigmar and Flesh-eater Courts Spearhead Boxes – Are They Worth It?

Cities of Sigmar Spearhead

First, let’s check out the new Spearhead box of the Order faction. The Cities of Sigmar Spearhead box contains:

  • A Freeguild Cavalier Marshal
  • 5 Freeguild Cavaliers
  • 10 Freeguild Steelhelms
  • 1 Ironweld Great Cannon

The costs of the CoS miniatures as per the Warhammer web shop are:

  • $60 for a Freeguild Cavalier Marshal
  • $65 for 5 Freeguild Cavaliers
  • $55 for 10 Freeguild Steelhelms
  • $55 for an Ironweld Great Cannon

These Spearhead boxes are the replacement for the Vanguard boxes as Games Workshop have revealed, so it’s safe to assume that the $140 price tag on the current kits will remain at least roughly the same for the new versions. This means that you’ll get $235 worth of Cities of Sigmar miniatures for $140, which is $95 less than buying them separately – which could go to expanding your forces to stand against Chaos, Death, and Destruction!

However, if you’d rather serve the Summerking instead of the God-King, you can join the Flesh-eater Courts as well. The contents of the box are almost all-new minis, just like with CoS:

  • 1 Abhorrant Archregent
  • 1 Vraghulf Courtier
  • 10 Cryptguard
  • 3 Morbheg Knights

The price of the FeC minis is:

  • $33.50 for an Abhorrant Archregent
  • $45 for a Vraghulf Courtier
  • $50 for 10 Cryptguard
  • $60 for 3 Morbheg Knights

While the Flesh-eater Courts boxes don’t have a great siege weapon like the Cities of Sigmar one, it’s still a great box to start your journey into madness and delusion. Sadly, this new starter box offers much less of a discount than the Cities of Sigmar Spearhead, as the total price of the minis comes out to $188.5, which is less than $50 cheaper than getting the boxes separately. Still, you can buy another box with the amount you save, so we really can’t complain.

With all the new stuff coming to Warhammer Age of Sigmar, it’s good to see that Games Workshop is looking to help new players get involved easier than ever before. If the leaks are true, Spearheads will come with their own gamemode similar to the Combat Patrols of Warhammer 40k, which could be a great entry point for everyone.
