New 40k Warhammer 40k: Space Marine and Necron Releases on 10/10!
A bunch of awesome new Warhammer 40K: Space Marine and Necron is coming our way on Saturday, October 10th!
40K Codex: Space Marines
All the rules and background sections cover every First Founding Chapter and their successors – even the Deathwatch! This is the nearest thing to an actual Codex Astartes we’ve ever made. It serves as the foundation for all your Adeptus Astartes armies and provides you with everything you need, and more, to unleash them on the battlefield and crush the enemies of the Imperium.
Datacards: Space Marines
It’s incredibly satisfying (and helpful) to place a datacard next to a friendly or enemy unit affected by a psychic power, Stratagem or Litany of Battle as a reminder that its effects are active. These new Datacards will enable you to do just that!
Primaris Invader ATV
This swift and maneuverable buggy can be equipped with either an onslaught gatling cannon or a multi-melta, while the driver gets to join in the fun with a twin auto bolt rifle. If you’re after some mobile fire support that can keep up with your Outriders, look no further!
Primaris Chaplain on Bike
Whether you’re looking to lead the charge of your Outriders from the front with a powerful Character, or you just think that the new Raider-pattern bikes would look sick in black, the Primaris Chaplain on Bike is just what you need! In any case, the wings of the Chaplain’s enormous crozius arcanum are styled in the manner of a battle axe – just imagine the mess that would make when the Chaplain smites a heretic at high speed!
They may be known for their lightning assaults, but sometimes even Space Marines need to hold the line against an overwhelming enemy force. That’s where the Firestrike Servo-turret comes in. These fearsome gun batteries can be fielded in units of up to three, armed with twin accelerator autocannons, or twin las-talons for some anti-armour punch. What’s more, they’re manned by some of the Chapter Armoury’s best marksmen, further assisted by advanced targeting arrays. As such, these Techmarines rarely miss their mark.
40K Codex: Necrons
This is the biggest, most all-encompassing edition of Codex: Necrons ever. It includes a detailed background of the ancient machine race and tells the full story of their ancestral ruler, the Silent King, for the first time. Add to that the wonderfully thematic Crusade rules, the largest roster of units the Necrons have ever had, and the freedom to assemble a Dynastic Code of your own, and it’s fair to say that Necrons fans are in for a real treat – and their enemies are in for a rude awakening…
Keep track of your Stratagems and physics-bending C’tan Powers with the accompanying Necrons datacards. This set is especially handy for reminding both you and your opponent which Command Protocol – a powerful new turn-based ability introduced in the codex – is active during each battle round.
Szarekh, the Silent King
That’s right – he’s back! Even without the not-so-subtle effects of his dais’ obeisance generators, it would be difficult to resist kneeling before the sheer majesty of the Silent King. Szarekh is accompanied by two Phaerons – newly elected members of the Triarch, who bear their relics of office. Behind the Silent King writhes the bound essence of a C’tan Shard known only as the Enchained, whose otherworldly powers fuel the dais and the incandescent annihilator beams that erupt forth from the Triarchal Menhirs that flank Szarekh at all times.
Lokhust Heavy Destroyer
The big guns are out in force with the Lokhust Heavy Destroyer. Armed with either an infantry-shredding enmitic exterminator or a tank-busting gauss destructor, these Destroyers are bigger, gnarlier and more heavily armed than ever before!
If you like your creepy, long-legged war machines to come with an added threat of doom, then the Canoptek Doomstalker is just the ticket! To ensure it inflicts sufficient levels of doom, it’s equipped with a carapace-mounted doomsday blaster, which increases in power the further away its target is. Just remember to say ‘Your doom approaches…’ each time you set one up on the battlefield!
Getting Started with Warhammer 40K
This new book, aptly named ‘Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000’, is designed to help anyone and everyone who’s getting started with Warhammer 40,000! It breaks down every aspect of the Warhammer hobby to its fundamentals, introducing how to collect, build, paint and play with your miniatures in a way that someone with no prior Warhammer experience can easily pick up. If you’ve ever thought about introducing a friend or family member to Warhammer 40,000, this is the way to do it. They’ll even get their very first models in the form of a push-fit Primaris Assault Intercessor and Necron Warrior too!
