Sometimes a bolt pistol won’t cut it. Neither will a bolt gun. Sure, it essentially fires out little rockets, but they’re little rockets. Sometimes you just need a weapon that can put a hole the size of manhole cover in even the thickest armor and then cause whatever you just shot at to explode spectacularly. That’s when the really heavy weapons come out, and when you form groups of psychos crazy enough to fire these weapons in one place, you get Devastator Squads. And GW’s taking pre-orders for the new version of them.


As always, the kit comes with something like a hundred thousand ways you could potentially arm your little mans. There’s two of each heavy weapon (Grav-Cannon, Missile Launcher, Multi-Melta, Lascannon, Plasma Cannon, and Heavy Bolter), as well as 15 different weapons to arm your sergeant (just pick something you might want him to have and chances are pretty good the option’s in there). There’s also various various extra helmets, legs, hands and arms, plus pieces just for accents like purity seals or spent shell casings.

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

    I’m curious about that cherub thing that’s up front in the photo – does the kit come with its base? What is it supposed to be? Why doesn’t the description mention it at all?

      My guess is that this tech-cherubim is a tribute to the first GW artist’s paintings from way back, such as John Blanche’s work. Whether the little guy has a purpose or not, I do not know… I like it though. 🙂

        Some of the older stuff like the cherubs and servo skulls have been making it into the game from the old art lately. I bet it is an option to take for a marine in the new book. Like in the Ork book you can take Ammo Runts that are basically miss rerolls, they’re just ‘counters’ to track the number you bought, but look cool chasing after the Boss with arms full of bullets.
