Games Workshop brings you a new way to buy their models with the one-click collection series now up on their website.

From the announcement:

Hobbyists often wonder: “What miniatures should I collect next?”

Sometimes you’re looking for a little extra inspiration or some ideas to help kick-start your hobby – especially in January. We get it. So at games-workshop.com we put our heads together to give your imagination a prod, and we came up with a unique selection of themed collections.

We’ve called them One-Click Collections, as they instantly give you a characterful range of Citadel miniatures. You can use them as a fine-looking painting project or the start of something even more ambitious – it’s up to you.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I dont get this marketing, i mean, its clearly not for new players as it doesn’t downplay the serious expenses needed to play the game.

    • I agree. It seems like they aren’t sure who they are aiming things at. You have a choice… 40 standard, plastic, non-cluttered tactical marines (with a bit of change from the £104) OR 17 finecost, overcluttered ‘special’ marines that will need a couple of pots of liquid greenstuff and extra patience when you have to return some for not being properly cast. It also doesn’t mention the material that they are made from… I doubt very much if it is metal and I know the opinions of many gamers on the finecost material.

    This is for people who don’t have enough time to click more than a couple of times to get these items. Phew! Thanks for saving me time and not money, GW!

    I agree with the rest of you, who are these packages aimed at? It’s such a non event it’s unreal!

      These packages look like they’re aimed at long term 40k players who want to start a new army with their tax return.

      A lot of 40k players start up a new army every year or two, and tax return season is a very big time for miniatures.

    YEARS ago I wandered into a GW store and walked out with a handful of “sample pack” type boxes. They had sprues of 4-5 related plastic minis. Like lizard folk, chaos warriors, beastmen etc.
    Those were really neat and priced right. I have never had the desire to play WH being primarily interested in the modeling part of the hobby.

    Those were a great idea… these not so much.

    This is pretty much going the opposite direction of what I want to see, which is GW reintroducing their bits selection. Used to be that you could purchase a single guy, an arm, whatever from a larger set.

    • Yeah — those were the days. As someone who just paints rather than collecting armies, it was nice to just be able to order something like a single sprue of orc boyz to paint up instead of having to buy a whole box — I don’t want to have to paint a bajillion rank and file troops, but I might enjoy painting a handful of them.

    I’ve never met a hobbyist who wondered that.

    I consider myself extremely lucky to have never met a “Games Workshop Hobbyist”.

    People who are part of the Wargaming hobby? Met tons of those.
