Well, it's time to celebrate a rather special anniversary. And also time to make a lot of us feel rather old...
Games Workshop is celebrating thirty years of their Space Marines. Though considering how long they've been around, it's not hard to see why they have become so ingrained in our hobby. When people say, "They've been around forever" that actually is basically true for anyone that's getting into the hobby now, since they existed before many gamers were even born or part of the hobby. Anyway, to celebrate, Games Workshop's coming out with a special limited-edition Space Marine figure.
The figure is a re-imagining of the original Space Marine model. It's got a disintegration pistol (and brother, when it disintegrates, it disintegrates!... well, waddya know? It disintegrated), a disintegration combi-gun and a combat blade. He'll have a special box and come with rules for using him in Warhammer 40k.
He's going to be very limited edition. And once he's gone, he's gone. So set your calendars, talk to your stockists, and make sure you get yours.
