Unboxing Warzone Resurrection: Bauhaus Starter Box (new version)

Unboxing time again and this is a quite big one, it's a lovely box though with really nice miniatures so keep on reading.

First up, this the totally new version of the Bauhaus Starter Box, the first one was based on the Kickstarter box and miniatures, and if you want to do a straight on comparison you can check out my Review/Unboxing of the old version here.

And now on the the new one.

You saw the front of the box on the top if this page and here's the back showing us...the old contents of the old box! Well this will be sorted out in the future I'm sure and is really just confusing for people seeing the box in stores and what not so no biggie but still something Prodos need the change later on. 

All the content in the box, better protected on the inside than the old boxes. 

And here's everything you get taken out. 1 Marshal/Kapitan, 1 Vulcan Battlesuit and 10 Hussars. A deck of cards (I count them to 79!?) bases for everyone and two D20. 
Here's the first sprue with the Marshal/Kapitan on a horse, there is some flash and some moldlines on the horse especially but nothing that isn't easy to solve. There's really not one of them who is the Marshal or Kapitan so just choose the one you like the most and you might have some use for the spare parts for a conversion or something. 
Really nice details and lovely design all trough. 

Cards for the Kapitan, here he is called Venusian Kapitan and have some different rules to the 'Kapitan' in the HotSS PDF. I think this card is a version that got scrapped but still found it's way into my box. Also note, there's no card for the Marshal strangely enough. 
Won't write much about the Vulcan model as I have already done an Unboxing of it. See it here

Different cards this time around though, Assault Frame was named Charge before and did the same thing but was an Tactical instead of an Gear card. So better now I think. Also the the 'Break the Line' card is new and quite good as well.  
And here we have the Hussars, the grunts who do the dirty job. You get ten of them is this box. Five different posed bodies, and all the weapons you need to equip them however you like. So ten AG-17 Panzerknacker Assault Rifles, two ARG-17 Rocker Launchers and two MG-40 LMG. 
The front of the first five Hussars, much better details compared to the old KS versions. And pretty much no moldlines or defects, just some flash. 

The weapon and arms sprues does make it so you can have your guys look quite different despite it being just five different main bodies to choose from. 

Hold the Line is a new card for the Hussars (instead of Munitions Change), and Stuck Grenades is changed to be easier to read out.
11 Resource cards? Should it be 10? I don't know.

No new cards here.

Here we have some changes though, new cards is Jungle Clearing Roto-Blades and Overcharged Plasma Shells. Look at my Unboxing of the old version to see which cards which have been removed or changed. 

Quite a lot of changes here's as well. Air Strike Flare was an Gear card before. 'Drilled to Perfection' is instead of a 'Spoke in the Cog' and is really an upgraded version (1+ to both RS and LD instead of just LD)

Have probably over a thousand WZR cards now and this is the first time I see this.

Here's the first built Hussars, here with an LMG. No of the arms are glued here but they fit so nice so you don't even need anything to keep them where they are. This is awesome because you can remove the arms when painting underneath and just glue them on when all that is finished.

The backpacks is stuck to the bodies but they look so much better than the old KS ones so that is not a problem really. 

Next five, some different arms makes this unit look a little bit different. Here they have a Rocket Launcher instead. 

The Kapitan with the option I choose. Some moldlines on the horse and the leg didn't fit perfectly so I need to do some minor GS work there. 

Awesome model. 

You can magnatize the two different bodies if you want to get both looks. 

But they fit together so nicely so that is almost not needed.

Here's is the other body option, it didn't fit together as good as the first one without glue. 

Here's how I built this Vulkan Battlesuit.

Had some minor issues with moldlines and what not on this one. But nothing major that can't be fixed quite easily. 

Spare parts. 

Here's we have a comparison shot with old VS new. The details on the new ones are so much better!

The spread legs syndrome is cured on the Bauhaus Hussars. 
So closing words then. Well first of all this box is much better than the old, details and overall quality on the sculpts have been improved considerably. There is some confusion with the cards, bases and what not (I'm waiting for answers from Prodos regarding these) but there is a great value in this box with great models and a good start for starting a new Bauhaus force (I see no reason not to buy this if you are starting a new Bauhaus Force actually. ). Still glad I have the old KS versions, but this new one is superior in every way.

All the guys you get in the box in their full glory.
