Warhammer 40k


Many people feel that the Ultramarines are the "boring Chapter" for the Space Marines. I don't know that that's entirely accurate. Maybe back in the day when they were the "generic chapter" that Marines defaulted to out of the codex, but not so much anymore. But anyway, whether you feel that or not, there's a new Contemptor Dread for the chapter that you can order now from Forge World.

There's a lot of ravenous, blood-thirsty things in the 40k universe. You have the Tyranids, who are ravenous and blood-thirsty aliens. They're the bad guys. You have Khorne, famous for the "Blood for the Blood God!" line. They're also the bad guys. Then you also have the Blood Angels, known for losing themselves to a blood frenzy and rushing at the enemy as fast as they can to rip them to shreds. They're the good guys. In this case, they want to get to the enemy so fast that they put a jump pack on a Dreadnaught. You can go order your Contemptor-Incaendius Dreadnaught now.

Two venerable chapters of the Space Marines are gettting Codex updates this week from Games Workshop. I remember back when these two were just alternate paint schemes, but they've had many updates since then, coming into their own with full support. If you're wanting to get some new Imperial Fists or Salamanders, this is an update you'll be excited about.

But even if you don't play those chapters, there's a new unit and vehicle to add to your Marine forces.

Psychers. They can use their mind to tap into a well of power and unleash attacks and enhance their abilities far beyond what any regular mortal is capable of. It's risky, but the risks are often worth the reward. For those with a love of psychers in 40k, you're in luck. There's the new Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising book, as well as the Blood of the Phoenix box set available to order now from Games Workshop.

Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.

Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! Yup, we've got two new Dark Angels figures available for you to order from Forge World this week. One's a new Praetor, while the other is a Legion Leviathan Dreadnaught body. All in stylish black (well, you have to paint them yourself ,but still), for those that like your Dark Angels without their Dark Angel Green coloration (or whatever that color's called nowadays).

The White Scars are well-known for their speed with which they head into battle. None of the white-clad brethren want to just have to walk their way to victory. They employ all manner of vehicles. One such is the Kyzagan Assault Speeder, which you can order now over in the Forge World webshop.

I know it happens somewhat often, getting some rather extreme differences between different releases from Forge World some weeks. But this one is pretty far apart. On one side, we've got a new Young Bilbo figure that's only available for a week to order. On the other, we've got three new weapons for Adeptus Titanicus with which to outfit your-

giant robots. I need to make sure that alarm's working right. I think it got confused a little too.

Discuss

There's many different Space Marine chapters in the 40k universe, each with their own combat strategies, strengths, focus in doctrine, and choice for equipment when hitting the battlefield. If you're looking to diversify your army a bit from just your average Marine force, you can now order two new codices from Games Workshop. You can put your name down to get either Raven Guard or Iron Hands (or both, I suppose) books now.

Discuss

I mean, I like rain. I like storms. But I'm not really thrilled when they cause huge amounts of damage, I.E. - become Ruinstorms. But that's just what you're getting to order from Forge World this week. There's new Ruinstorm Daemon Brutes that you can get for your 40k Horus Heresy armies. Place your orders now.

Shoom! Shoom! Dakka-dakka-dakka! Neeeeeroooom! Bshhhh! Aaaaah! *moves the little planes around by their stands while making sound effects*

Err... umm... yes. *puts toy planes away* Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for a new miniatures game set in the 40k universe. It's Aeronautica Imperialis and it's akin to Wings of Fury and X-Wing, in that you're controlling aircraft in the skies high above the battlefield. The starter set is Imperial vs. Orks. You can order your copy now.

Discuss

A classic game in a new form. Relic, the epic sci-fi adventure around the Antian Sector, is now available from WizKids. What's different about the WizKids version? The busts for the figures have been improved. There's also upgraded punchboard and scenario cards. Want to get something a little extra? There's the Deluxe version where the busts are pre-painted for your convenience. You can get your copy now.

Forge World releases do sometimes fall on pretty far spectrums in terms of theme from one-another. You've got sci-fi. You've got fantasy. It's a little from column A. It's a little from column B. That's what we have today. They are taking orders for new jetbikes for the White Scars and a gunship for the Legion Janitorales... I mean, Custodes. They've also got a new set for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game that's the various defenders of Lake-town, including Bard, Legolas, and Tauriel.

Discuss

There's... just about everything in this announcement. It's a little hard to summarize, since it covers pretty much all of GW's game lines, from Age of Sigmar to 40k and their various spin-offs, as well as the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game. Suffice to say that if you play any GW games, there's something probably in here for you to check out.

Discuss

Some new box sets are availble to pre-order from Games Workshop over in their store for some of the spin-off games from 40k. There's a new Kill Team starter that pits the Space Marines against the Tau. Then, you have a new Blackstone Fortress expansion called Escalation. It, as one would expect, continues on the story of the game as you try and take back the weapon systems in the fortress.

Discuss

There's a new Space Marines codex making its rounds for you 40k players. And, as usual, when there's a new Codex release, the next couple waves are also for that faction. As such, there's new Marines that you can get, including some leaders and a new Tactical Warsuit.

Discuss

Space Marines. They're pretty much the most iconic thing in Warhammer 40k. They've also got a new codex that you can order from Games Workshop. There's also a supplemental codex for the Ultramarines and White Scars. So, if you don't want Space Romans and instead want Space Mongols, you can pick that up. There's also a few new minis and some chapter dice if you prefer.

Discuss

Ah, Dark Angels. Back when I played 40k, they were my chapter of choice. Granted, my main army was Orks, so maybe I just had a surplus of green paint already sitting around. But that's beside the point, if you're a Dark Angels fan, there's a new Dreadnaught and Terminator that you can pre-order from Forge World for your boys in black (before they went green).

Discuss

Games Workshop is going a bit retro. They've pulled a trio of old Chaos Sorcerer models out of the vaults and are ready to custom-make some when you want to order them. This might be your last chance for a while to pick them up. So get now while the getting is good.

Discuss

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

You know what that sound means. It's the Giant Robot Alert and that's what Forge World is bringing us this week. They're the Knight Moirax and there's two weapon loadouts that you can pre-order now from their webshop for your 40k armies.

I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.

Discuss

Forge World has a new character from their Horus Heresy Character Series for you to order. It's Chapter Master Raldoron of the Blood Angels, seen here making sure his equipment is well taken care of. Demon blood corrodes pretty badly, after all. You can order him alone or with a retinue of terminators.

<whoop whoop whoop>

Giant robot alert! We've got giant robot alert! And these are mean ones, too. Games Workshop is coming out with the Chaos Knights codex for 40k, and you can order yours now, along with the first two Knight kits. As if that weren't enough, there's also new Blackstone Fortress releases you can check out.

I don't know what it is about Warhammer 40k, but it seems to just end up with people owning huge armies. I know my Ork army was massive. Even my Dark Angels army would push the scales in terms of number of minis. And, of course, if you have all those figures, you sometimes want to see them all on the table at once. It's just big and impressive. And that's what you can do with Warhammer 40k: Apocalypse. Games Workshop is taking pre-orders for this new mode, as well as a whole ton of battle sets, over on their website now.

Discuss

Well, that's a kit that's been around for quite some time mostly unchanged. It's the Leman Russ. Games Workshop has retooled the old Imperial Guard mainstay. There's also a new Warhammer Underworlds deck called Power Unbound. Both of these are available to pre-order now from their website.
