As most of you know, Assault on Black Reach is the Warhammer 40k "starter" set, containing rulebook, dice, rulers, templates, Space Marines and Orks. Many other players, when learning that I wanted to build an Ork army, suggested buying the set and then selling the Space Marines on Ebay. While there is a chance to make money from this, that also takes more time for your money to come back to you. In my opinion, the best bet is not to buy AoBR, but to buy from those people who do and are trying to unload the models.
Instead of spending 75 dollars, I spent 27 dollars on Ebay. For that grand sum, I just received the Warboss, Boyz, Nobz, and Deffkoptas (all the Orks in the set) as well as the templates and rulebook. While it may not have as many sprue options as buying them separately, it's a quick and cost-efficient way to fill out my Ork army. This same concept applies for Space Marine players.
No, I do not think that I am the first person to think of this. Far from it. I am just informing anyone who got the same advice I did about buying AoBR that a little time on Ebay will let you get what you want from the set at a much better price, and with less hassle.
