FauxHammer already took a very comprehensive look at the sprues included in the Starter Set in his Indomitus Review for Miniature Painters which also includes some very handy guides for assembly. (The Elite Edition Starter Set includes sprues A, B, D, E and F from the Indomitus set.) Finally “ Command Edition” is the new flagship of the range. Which makes me wonder why Elite Edition has that name. I thought the definition of Elite was something “that is superior in terms of ability or qualities to the rest of a group or society”. But now there is a version which is more superior than Elite… Depending on your budget Skorpekh are going to be easier to come into, but Wraiths are a great kit and a strong independent unit so we’ll leave it to your personal preference. Lychguard are also no slouches in combat, though they are slower, so if you want a good midfield threat that can shield your characters that’s not a bad option. Once you have a few large melee threats established you’re going to want to fill out your list with some sturdy troops and fast objective-grabbers/harassers, which Warriors and Scarab Swarms fill quite nicely. A lot of players also really enjoy bringing along a C’tan Shard of the Nightbringer, who is a HUGE threat to anything nearby and provides solid offense and/or distraction (note it does not benefit from the Dynasty traits).

The following is stuff that builds out to a decent core that almost any army can use effectively:

It looks awful and takes up a huge amount of space on the mat. A couple of the Missions actually have you set the table up like this.
