Sunday Preview – #New40K and Pre-orders Are Back!
This week is shaping up to be epic. Not only do we have great news for fans of the 41st Millennium, but pre-orders are starting up again this coming Saturday! Watch this for a quick hit, and then get ready to learn more about what’s coming soon.
In case you somehow missed the multitude of memos, a new edition of Warhammer 40,000 was announced yesterday! Want more good news? All your current codex books and supplements will still be perfectly valid. There are loads of updates you’ll love that offer new ways to enjoy the game.
Now for some more great news – pre-orders are back on!
Psychic Awakening: Engine War
The latest entry in the ongoing Psychic Awakening series updates no fewer than four factions with new rules, background material, and missions to play out the events. The focus has been on the Adeptus Mechanicus, because they have a slew of new models, but this book also covers Imperial Knights, Chaos Knights, and Chaos Daemons – including the latest units for Slaanesh!
This is a must-have tome for collectors of Adeptus Mechanicus, Knights of all kinds, and Chaos armies. Speaking of which, the sumptuously appointed collector’s edition is the best way to show your loyalty. It includes the same stunning black-on-black presentation we’ve seen with the rest of the Psychic Awakening books, plus the four short stories that were first published here printed inside!
The book will also be available in standard hardback, plus an ePub edition for easy reading and gaming on the go. No matter which one you get, this book has all the rules you’ll need to use the massive wave of new Adeptus Mechanicus releases, amongst other things!
If you order either the collector’s edition or the standard hardback, we’ll even throw in a pair of datasheet cards for Syll’Esske, the Vengeful Allegiance and Shalaxi Helbane!
First seen in Kill Team Theta-7 Acquisitus box, these Tech-Priests are now available on their own. Their bodies are bloated with bizarre machinery, allowing them to bend the Motive Force to their will. They float across the battlefield, enhancing nearby troops and unleashing baleful energies with magnarail lances and transonic cannons.
Of course, a leader needs troops to enact their strategies…
Serberys Raiders and Sulphurhounds
Riding freakish quadrupedal constructs into battle, these soldiers of the Machine God operate as forward recon and linebreakers. The kit allows you to build three models in one of two ways. Sulphurhounds dual wield pistols, and their mounts are augmented with the ability to breath flaming blasts of corrosive gas. Raiders, on the other (probably bionic) hand, fire galvanic carbines with deadly accuracy before closing in to cut down their quarry with curved cavalry sabres.
Pteraxii Sterylizors and Skystalkers
Flying shock troops equipped with articulated wing-limbs and clawed feet, the Pteraxii box builds five of either the close-range Sterylizors, gripping white-hot phosphor torches, or mid-range Skystalkers, wielding withering flechette carbines. Not only do they offer Adeptus Mechanicus armies a variety of new tactical options, and they’re sure to be a hit with kit bashers and converters – this box is loaded with cool bits.
This incredible kit builds one of three variations on a new flying chassis. The Transvector ferries elite troops to the front and offers fire support, the Fusilave is a ground attack aircraft with a bomb rack, and the Stratoraptor is a dedicated gunship. All of them share the same unusual design, with huge mechanical bat wings, articulated landing-limbs and a distinctive curved cockpit.
Start Collecting! Adeptus Mechanicus
If all these new releases have you excited to join the cause of Mars or grow your existing forces, you now have a new Start Collecting! set. This box includes ten Skitarii Vanguard or Rangers (or five of each), a Tech-Priest Enginseer and a mighty Skorpius Dunerider. The floaty tank can also be built as a Skorpius Disintegrator, so you might as well get two boxes to make the most of it. This is an incredible set that gives the Adeptus Mechanicus an array of options to start a new army or expand an existing one.
Keep an eye out for more previews on the new pre-order goodies throughout the week. We expect many of you will be eager to get your hands on the first new releases in some time, and our shipping department will be doing everything they can to get your models out by the weekend of release. With new safety measures in place, and an increased demand for online shopping, your order might take just a little longer than usual to get to you. We’d ask for your patience as everyone continues to work safely and as quickly as possible under the circumstances.
The Fate of the Dark Imperium
Speaking of the new edition, the Dark Imperium box is making the shift to Last Chance to Buy. Even though the book will be outdated soon, it’s still a fantastic way to pick up Primaris Space Marines and Death Guard models. Stock up and grow your armies, or split it with a mate for a pair of great starter forces!
his is a very exciting week for fans of Warhammer, and we want to see what you’re up to more than ever. Has the news of a new edition of Warhammer 40,000 moved some back-burner projects to the top of your to-do list? Are you dusting off your Skitarii army in preparation for reinforcements? Share them with us on social media with #WarhammerCommunity!
As always, stay safe and keep your hobby momentum going strong!
Warhammer 40,000: More Models Revealed
Yesterday was a pretty epic day for Warhammer 40,000 fans, what with news about a new edition of the game, a mind-blowing cinematic trailer and a glimpse of some of the awesome new models on the horizon. With all this and more doing the rounds across the internet (along with rumours from a potato-cam’s many blinking eyes), we thought it was time for a bit of a round-up.
The Awesome Foursome
Well, first up we saw the new Primaris Assault Intercessor, complete with heavy bolt pistol and meat-mulching* chainsword. Check him out here…
We also had our first look at the resurgent menace of the Necrons with some creepy new Necron Warriors.
Seriously, how could a Necron possibly look creepier or more ominous?
Oh… like this. Yeah, behold the multi-limbed monstrosity known as a Skorpech Lord.
This towering killer, armed with such delights as a flensing claw and enmitic annihilator, gives a hint as to the murderous delights the forthcoming Necrons have in store for us. Eagle-eyed fans might have found him skulking on the newly refreshed Warhammer40000.com website, alongside…
This chap! Yes, your prayers have been answered – a new Primaris Lieutenant for a new edition… we know a certain tweeter who can’t contain himself. And yes, that is a volkite pistol* and storm shield.
And that’s not all we’ve got in store for you… thanks to the reverse-miracle of the potato-cam, we’re able to bring a much nicer, less grainy image of some more Necrons… information on what exactly is in the picture remains shrouded in mystery. So, we asked Warhammer Community savant, Eddie Eccles to take his best stab at annotating it for us. Good luck everyone…
We couldn’t let the Necrons have all the fun now, could we? Turns out there’s also a Primaris potato-cam out there… and to spare your blushes as you try to decipher exactly what the grainy, out-of-focus goodies are, we thought we’d get straight to the heart of the matter. Brace yourselves. THIS. IS. AWESOME.
Quick question: what’s better than a Primaris Assault Intercessor? Yep, that’s right! Five of them! Five super-choppy Assault Intercessors!
Wanna see a Primaris Bladeguard Veteran? Sure you do… and who are we to stand in the way of such desires?
Your eyes do not deceive you – they are indeed 1st Company Veterans armed with power swords*** and storm shields.
Surely it doesn’t get better for Space Marines collectors than that… right?
Except, there is one type of Primaris Space Marine requested more than any other… we’ve seen the tweets, the pleading Facebook posts and even the politely raised hands in Q&A sessions across the world. Well, White Scars, Ravenwing and other speed-obsessed Space Marines fans… now is your time to shine. Meet the Primaris Outriders.
Yeah, they’re the best thing since the invention of the wheel. We agree.
Someone has to keep all these new Space Marines in line though, right? Someone to execute the orders of the Chapter Masters, or you know, just execute dudes in general? That’s this guy.
He’s a Judicar – he’s an entirely new kind of Space Marine, he’s got an executioner blade**** specially designed for lopping off heads – and there’s a lot of ‘judicating’ to be done.
Phew, that was quite the rush! Swathes of new Necrons heralding the resurgence of the galaxy’s former masters and enough Primaris Space Marines to conquer a Necron-infested planet or two! We’ll bring you more on all of these awesome new models just as soon as we have it!
* That’s just our scrivener getting excited, it’s actually an Astartes chainsword…
** Technically, it’s a neo-volkite pistol, and if you ask any Horus Heresy fan, they’ll tell you they are perfect for immolating your enemies. Think of it as a heat ray that causes the target to deflagrate. And yes, deflagrate is a rad word.
*** Fine, master-crafted power swords, if you must know.
**** Executioner relic blade, if we’re being really specific. That flattened head, yeah – that’s how you know it’s designed for chopping the heads off bad guys (badness all depends on your perspective though, we suppose).
