This is the latest board game from GW.

Two player game.
£100.00
Beautiful models (of course)

Worth it?

Have a look:

As with all the new minis board games from GW, the value comes from the quality of miniatures - these are proper, expensive GW models in a boardgame box.

If you want to minis for 40k in addition to the game, then the value is there. That said, the quality of their actual boardgames has been reportedly patchy at best.

Consensus seems to be that if you are a big fan of the lore, the setting and the minis, the lighter or glossy-surface nature of the gameplay won't bother you. Its a LOT of money for an average game with great bits.

The price of the mini's would work out at more than £100 and would be very interested in those alone as my first 40k army(a long time ago in a galaxy far far away) was a genestealer cult bot looking at the game itself would have preferred something more like space hulk

The only reason you'd pay 100 quid is if your desperate to help out the local GW.
Most retailers (including our esteemed Battlefield Hobbies)are selling it at 10% off and some of the larger online retailers were doing 20% off on preorders which I think brings it down it to he premium board game category.
As has been mentioned in line with Assassination Force (can't remember if that was the actual name) and Betrayal at Calth (best value board game GW have ever released if you want to start a preheresy army) the cost to buy miniatures separately would be equal or more than the cost of the game. If you want to use the miniatures in 40k as well there's no reason not to get it.
For me Genestealer Cult holds huge nostalgia value that coupled with being able to play a quick 2 player mission means I'll be picking it up.

The figures look great, it seems to be at a similar price point to your high end games that include minis.
