New Paladins Available to Pre-Order From Games Workshop

Back here in the office after Gen Con. Hopefully you, too, are getting back into the regular swing of things. I know I could use another day or so to rest, but the news doesn’t stop and that means I can’t, either. For example, there’s a new set of Paladins available to pre-order from Games Workshop for Age of Sigmar. Along with them, they’ve also got some new terrain kits to help enhance your gaming table.

As is customary with GW unit kits, there’s a lot of options and extras for your set of five guys. This includes weapons to create one of three different Paladin units (Retributors, Protectors, or Decimators), eighteen heads to pick from, twenty shoulder pads, and other extra weapons and decorations. The Sigmar forces really are getting quickly bulked up to the size of other armies to try and give you the options that other factions have available to them.

The terrain kits are specifically designed to show how Chaos has twisted and changed the landscape as they ravage across the lands and realms. There are Numinous Occulums, Ophidian Archways, and Dragonfate Diases (diasees?… ummm… Dragonfate Stands. There…). These pieces can be used separately, or in conjunction to create a single centerpiece for your gaming table.

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

    The more I see of these models, the more they keep reminding me of Metropolis.

      I could see that.

      But my first thoughts with the images above were gold Cybermen.

  • Wow, they’re expensive. 5 plastic guys for $70 Cdn. I bought a box of Victrix’s new Carthaginians recently – 62 plastic guys for $62 Cdn. WTF GW?

    I actually like the design of many of these new Sigmar units. The armor and mask-helmets remind me a lot of Ordinators from Morrowind, which were a characterful addition to that game.

    That being said, I wouldn’t touch these with a 10-foot pole, strictly due to the pricing. Having so many customization bits on a sprue is neat in concept, but when it is used to help inflate your prices to astronomical levels (for what they are), while leaving you with so many unused pieces you paid for….I can’t possibly justify investing in something like that

    They look like robots from 1960’s sci-fi. Or Mordred from the 1980’s movie Excalibur – and he was a douche.

    My guess would be they are trying to come up with a Fantasy unit that is comparable to a Space Marine. These guys remind me a little of that.

      Only a little?

  • Shame the terrain is so over-embellished it’s useless for just about any other tabletop game.
