GW: Mehr für Necrons und Space Marines

Kommenden Samstag kommen weitere Verstärkungen für die Necrons und die Space Marines.

Sunday Preview – Martian Souls

Games Workshop Sunday Preview – Martian Souls 1

The coming week is packed full of incredible pre-orders for Warhammer 40,000.

Let’s break them down in greater detail, starting with the Necrons.

Ophydian Destroyers

So, what do we know about this Destroyer sub-cult? First of all, as Destroyers, Ophydians really aren’t fans of living organisms. In fact, they’ll actively go out of their way to inflict grievous levels of dismemberment upon them. They do this by tearing in and out of reality before tearing through their prey. Lots of tearing will be involved – it’s kinda their thing. Ophydian Destroyers have ensured that this process is as efficient as possible by ‘encouraging’ the Crypteks to modify their bodies to be whipcord fast and armed with an array of deadly claws and energised blades.

Convergence of Dominion

Comprising three tall structures known as Starsteles, a Convergence of Dominion is a means of securing your dynasty’s mastery of the battlefield. What’s more, a Cryptek can use a hypertechnological form of instant transmission to move one of the three starsteles to wherever you want on the battlefield, enabling you to forcefully stake your claim even upon your opponent’s deployment zone! This new Fortification not only bolsters the Leadership of your Necron army, but each Starstele also acts as a beacon that allows your nearby units to benefit from the selected directives of the active command protocol, even when they’re out of range of your Necron Nobles.

Monolith

A slower, but more direct, way to impose your dominion over your opponent’s territory is to unleash the Monolith. As it drifts imperiously towards enemy lines, you can lash your foes with the inconceivable power of the Monolith’s particle whip, while obliterating any survivors with either a set of four corner-mounted gauss flux arcs or the new, aptly named, death rays! As if that wasn’t enough, your Core units can pour through the Monolith’s Eternity Gate from Strategic Reserves directly into the fray, making securing nearby objectives a doddle. The newly reimagined Monolith is considerably larger and more impressive than its predecessor, and is so powerful it’s now a Lord of War choice! Its sheer presence, not to mention its game-changing abilities, make it a worthy addition to any Necron dynasty’s bid for galactic reconquest.

Games Workshop Sunday Preview – Martian Souls 4

As with the other Necron kits shown here, the Monolith is up for pre-order on Saturday. However, this date may change for you Warhammerers down under in Australia and New Zealand due to delays caused by recent events beyond our control. Keep an eye on warhammer-community.com and we’ll make sure you’re kept in the loop.

C’tan Shard of the Void Dragon

First thing’s first, this is the largest and most imposing C’tan Shard we’ve ever made, looking every bit the twisted deity it manifests as. In addition to serving as an incredible army centrepiece, the C’tan Shard’s reality-bending powers are nothing short of apocalyptic on the battlefield. The C’tan Shard of the Void Dragon holds unrivalled power over the war engines of lesser races and can effortlessly unmake them. To make matters worse for its hapless victims, it can even absorb the broken remains of enemy vehicles to restore its own vitality. To be fair, though, no-one said that facing the bound essence of a star god in battle would be easy!

Games Workshop Sunday Preview – Martian Souls 5

The Space Marines are also in for a treat with two new kits of their own…

Hammerfall Bunker

If you’re looking to protect an objective marker in your deployment zone, there are few more effective ways to do so than to set up a Hammerfall Bunker next to it. As well as being a tough Fortification for your opponent to destroy (it’s called a ‘Bunker’ for good reason!), its choice of Hammerfall heavy flamer or heavy bolter array offers an exceptional area-denial threat, as they target EVERY ELIGIBLE ENEMY UNIT IN RANGE! No matter which direction your opponent attempts to engage your Hammerfall Bunker from, they will find their units relentlessly punished. And even if your enemies wisely keep their distance, they still won’t be able to escape your Hammerfall Bunker’s turret-mounted missile launcher!

Games Workshop Sunday Preview – Martian Souls 6

Primaris Techmarine

Keep your fleet of Adeptus Astartes vehicles and Dreadnoughts fighting fit in battle with a Primaris Techmarine. Armed with a grav-pistol, shoulder-mounted forge bolter, mechadendrite, and the iconic Omnissian power axe of his order, the Primaris Techmarine is as much a walking weapons platform as a battlefield mechanic. With the ability to upgrade one of your Techmarines to a Master of the Forge in the new edition of Codex: Space Marines, the Primaris Techmarine also makes the perfect candidate for such a promotion!

Games Workshop Sunday Preview – Martian Souls 7

These reinforcements are up for pre-order from Saturday.

  • Ich will gar nicht wissen, was der neue Monolith kosten wird – bestimmt so viel wie der neue AoS Riese, also 150 Euro. (Sorry, falls die Preise schon bekannt sein sollten, ich habe da gerade nicht nach recherchiert.)

    Den neuen C’Tan, bzw. sein Shard finde ich übrigens ziemlich cool. Dieser Look einer gefallenen Mechano-Engels hat was.

    Auf der Schattenseite steht da für mich der Terranerbunker aus Starcraft, dessen Beupläne sich irgendwie in einen STK Speicher des 40k Universums verirrt haben. Will sagen: Mir gefällt das Ding überhaupt nicht.

  • Wenn der Bunker nicht zu viel kostet werde ich mir den Mal zulegen und zu der Schildkröte umschnitzen die er immer schon war.
    Wollte sowieso noch eine Schmiedebestie haben.

  • Auch wenn ich nicht in der Zielgruppe für 28mm Massenschlachten bin, die neuen Necrons finde ich echt super. Da sind ein ganzer Haufen sehr interessanter und ansprechender Modelle dabei.

    Um so seltsamer ist es da alles was ich in letzter Zeit für die Space Marines sehe eher albern und seltsam unproportioniert it. Erinnert mich an die gestauchten Proportionen von altem Actionfiguren Zubehör.

  • Mit dem SM Quad (gocart) und diesem Bunker könnte man bald „Dune 2 – Kampf um Arrakis“ nachspielen…

    Fehlen noch ein trike (oder das von mantic), geschlossene Gebäude und ein Sandwurm Modell.

  • Erst hat Blizzard schon mehr als grenzwertig damals bei 40k das Konzept der Spacemarines ges… geliehen und jetzt revanchiert sich GW offensichtlich und übernimmt fast 1zu1 den Bunker aus StarCraft 2.

    😄

  • Den Shade werde ich wohl kitbashen, wie alle C’Tans.
    Beim rest der Necrons kommt es auf den Preis an.

    Der Techmarine is cool, mir wird er das Geld aber nicht wert sein.

  • Foto-Experten-Frage: Warum eigentlich ist beim Bunker das linke Raketen-Pod optisch kleiner als das rechte? Perspektivisch ist das Linke näher am Betrachter – müsste es da bildlich nicht größer sein? #altesphysikbuchrauskram
