It's in a sleeved box. The inside tray is sturdy enough, but the outside sleeve doesn't seem very solid. It's enough for surviving a warehouseng and shipping in a shop, but I feel it's not efficient for using it to haul your warband around, especially, as the insert could slide out of the sleeve, causing the minis to fall out.
Even the inside tray looks nice, with illustrations on the inside.
The rules in the set are probably the same as the ones on the website.
The set includes a great deal of cards, with many options for your Askari genetics.
The minis as metal figures from the Askari range, packaged together.
They are packed in separate self-sealing bags, so the parts don't get mixed, and you can easily start assembling them, without having to spend time separating.
They are good looking figures, with realistic proportions, scaled for about 1:50-1:56. For further insights about the figures, read the reviews of the miniatures.
