Sunday Preview: The Psychic Awakening Finale

Games Workshop Sunday Preview The Psychic Awakening Finale 1

This weekend, we reach the epic conclusion of the Psychic Awakening saga with the release of Pariah. We also have some fantastic new models on the way that tie in with the finale, and even Black Library are getting in on the act.

Psychic Awakening

Since the Great Rift opened, the galaxy has been engulfed in unnatural phenomena and ferocious warfare, and psychic mutation is rife across the Imperium. Humanity’s response has been the Indomitus Crusade, which now reaches the mysterious Pariah Nexus. It’s a mysterious area of calm in a tumultuous galaxy, and here, the Necrons have begun their own plan to reclaim the galaxy and fend off the storms of growing psychic energy.

Pariah includes the details of Humanity’s horrific battles within the Pariah Nexus, along with new missions to let you recreate the key battles of the war. There are rules for using the Inquisition in Warhammer 40,000 including datasheets, Stratagems, Warlord Traits, the Telethesia psychic discipline, and now it’s easier than ever for them to join Imperium forces. You’ll also get access to new Theatres of War rules. These recreate conflicts from the Psychic Awakening series that let you fight everywhere from perilous jungles to devoured worlds.

Pariah comes in a lavish collector’s edition, featuring a luxury soft-touch cover and four short stories first seen on the Warhammer Community website. The final chapter of the Psychic Awakening saga also comes in a standard hardback and ePub version.

Pariah features datasheets for four heroes and villains of the 41st Millennium. First up is Illuminor Szeras, the genius/maniac (delete as applicable) behind Necron biotransference. Now he stalks the galaxy seeking the secrets of life and new ways to augment Necron technology. He’s been working on his own body since we last saw him – it’s now larger, features some mysterious blackstone, and grants him the ability to manipulate energy at the atomic level.

This stunning model will make a fine centrepiece in any Necron army. Plus, with his special rule that lets him improve Necron Warriors in-game, he’ll fit in really well with the Necron half of the Indomitus boxed set. We’re sure that Illuminor Szeras will be a favourite among painters, and we expect him to feature in a fair few Golden Demon entries in the future!

Facing the malevolent mechanoid is one of the Imperium’s premier Necron hunters, Lord Inquisitor Kyria Draxus. Considered a heretic by some of her peers due to her use of xenos technologies, she openly wields a modified shuriken catapult! Draxus is accompanied by a strange familiar, Shang, from the mysterious species known as Wyvachs. They possess a deep psychic bond, and it’s said that Draxus can see through the eyes of the winged creature.

Draxus’ model will make a unique addition to any Inquisition army. Although you might need to be careful that your other Inquisitors don’t get jealous of her pet.*

An even more unusual duo are Ephrael Stern and Kyganil. Stern was once a Seraphim from the Order of Our Martyred Lady, apparently slain by the followers of a Slaaneshi Greater Daemon. However, her service to the God-Emperor did not end in death, and since her resurrection, she’s been called both a saint and a heretic. Bound to Stern by the strands of fate is Kyganil, who was once a Harlequin. Now, this pair of outcasts cut a swathe through the galaxy, fighting the forces of Chaos wherever they find them.

Able to join any Imperium army, these two are experts in close combat. With an incredible degree of motion and a range of textures, the models offer a superb painting project too.

New from Black Library

Ephrael Stern is also the title character in next week’s deluxe release from Black Library – Ephrael Stern: The Heretic Saint. Has she been forsaken by the God-Emperor? Can she find her way into His graces once more and save Humanity from a menace that threatens to plunge Mankind into an abyss of nothingness?

Games Workshop Sunday Preview The Psychic Awakening Finale 8

This mega limited edition contains a hardback copy of The Heretic Saint, a copy of the Daemonifuge graphic novel with alternate cover, a fleur-de-lis wax seal stamp and wax, six dice in a dice bag, an Ephrael Stern enamel pin, cloth bookmark and coin, and three art prints. This is strictly limited edition, so make sure that you get up early on Saturday to get your hands on one.

Alongside this tome is a separate release of a 20th-anniversary edition of the legendary Daemonifuge graphic novel. It sees Stern and the inquisitor Silas Hand place their trust in each other as they embark on a dangerous quest to discover the origins of Stern’s power.

  • Mit Pariah wird endlich ein Schlussstrich unter die leider vom hintergrundtechnischen Gehalt sehr magere Psychic Awakening Reihe gesetzt. Es ist wohl davon auszugehen, dass das Buch mit der Rückkehr von Szarekh, dem Stillen König der Necrons enden wird. Kaufen werde ich mir das Buch eher nicht.

    Zu den Modellen muss ich sagen, dass ich den neuen Illuminator gut finde. Er passt zu den neuen Necrons aus der Indomitus Box. Leider wirken solche szenerischen Sachen wie der arme Soldat, der gerade aufgelöst wird, auf Dauer leider nicht so gut. Eine Option ohne wäre gut, mal sehen, ob es die gibt

    Die Inquisitorin ist nicht mein Fall – und leider auch Ephrael Stern nicht. Hier wäre es besser gewesen, wenn man das Cover das Romans als Miniatur umgesetzt hätte, denn diese dynamische Pose wirkt doch arg bemüht…

  • „Psionisches Erwachen“ ist, sowie die 6te, 7te und 8te Edition, komplett an mir vorbeigegangen. Mein Interesse für den Hintergrund von 40k beschrängt sich aber mittlerweile auch auf 0. Allerdings mag ich die Modelle sehr gerne.

    Von den Modellen her muss ich auch sagen, dass die Inquisitorin und Ms. Demonifuge herself insgesamt sehr schwach sind und sehr „gewollt“ wirken. Zumindest für mein Empfinden. Der Necron ist da auch mein Highlight vom gezeigten her.
