GW: Castellan Crowe und AoS Starterboxen Preview
Die Dämonenjäger der Grey Knight sollen in Kürze Nachschub erhalten und es gibt mit Castellan Crowe ein überarbeitetes Charaktermodell zu sehen, während mit den neuen Starterboxen bald der Kampf um die Reiche der Sterblichen fortgeführt wird.
Grey Knight Castellan Crowe and his Haunted Sword Return With an Awesome New ModelWe recently announced that a new Grey Knights codex is on the way. This secretive silver order is led by extraordinary champions – warriors so incorruptible as to stare down the most terrifying creatures of the warp without blinking. One is so fastidious in his faith that he’s allowed to carry a daemonic blade to battle. Chaos incursions across the galaxy take note: Castellan Garran Crowe is back.
Crowe leads the Purifier order of the Grey Knights, a group of Space Marines incredibly resistant to the temptations of the Dark Gods. In fact, as the head of the Purifiers, Crowe is thought to be all but immune to the corruption of Chaos. A character with such a resilient soul deserves an amazing new model.
Wow, that’s quite a glow up! With such a glorious level of detail (including a library’s worth of purity seals and a hip-mounted novel), he’s bound to be a favourite with painters, and we’d be amazed if we didn’t see more than a few of these entered into future Golden Demon competitions.
As you can see, Crowe still wields the Black Blade of Antwyr. It whispers, cajoles, and screams, promising undreamt power in a voice only he can hear, and it doesn’t have a mute button. It is a curse only Crowe can endure, but the risks are worth it – the sword is deadlier than ever.
Castellan Crowe and the new Grey Knights codex are available soon – we’ll be taking a closer look at both as we approach the pre-order date.
Get Into Warhammer Age of Sigmar Your Way With These Fantastic New Starter Boxes and Paint Sets
The launch of the new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar means this is the perfect time to jump into the wars raging across the Mortal Realms. Whether you want to dip your toes into the setting and play a few skirmish games or own two fantastic armies led by powerful Heroes, the new starter sets contain everything you need to build a force and take it into battle.
And because no one likes to play with sad, grey plastic, we’re also getting three starter paint sets: one each for the Stormcast Eternals and the Kruleboyz, alongside a general set that has all the tools you need to prise your troops off their sprues and apply some colour to get them game-ready. If you head over to the Warhammer Age of Sigmar website, you’ll also find a new range of painting videos to help you get started.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar Warrior Starter Set
The Warrior Starter Set is ideal for people playing Warhammer Age of Sigmar for the first time. It’s been designed for people who want to learn – or teach – the basics of the game without worrying about advanced rules.
This box contains everything you need for a good scrap, with 18 miniatures including a mystical Knight-Arcanum and five Vindictors of the Stormcast Eternals Redeemer conclaves, facing off against a cunning Killaboss, his Stab-grot assistant, and 10 loathsome Gutrippaz.
On top of that, you get dice, range rulers, a double-sided gaming mat, two manuals, and warscrolls for all the units. With fewer rules to learn, this is a great option for younger Warhammer hobbyists.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar Harbinger Starter Set
The Harbinger Starter Set is a step up in both complexity AND swag. This boxed set contains the same great troops as the Warrior Set – but there are loads of extra goodies here, including two powerful Heroes.
The Harbinger Set comes with 32 push-fit plastic miniatures: 10 Stormcast Eternals including five noble Vindictors and three elite Praetors led by the imposing Lord-Imperatant and his faithful Gryph-hound, arrayed against 10 brutish Gutrippaz and 10 Hobgrot Slittaz under the baleful eye of a Swampcalla Shaman and his unpleasant pot-grot.
On top of that, you get all the stuff you need to launch your own Dawnbringer Crusade: dice, range rulers, a double-sided gaming mat, manuals, warscrolls, rules references, and even cunning cardboard terrain you can fashion out of the underside of the box.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar Extremis Starter Set
The Extremis Starter set gives you an awesome start in Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Not only does it contain all the models and extras you get in the Harbinger box, but it also includes the full rules for the game.
Importantly, you also upgrade from a card gaming mat to a double-sided gaming board – and you get five stunning pieces of plastic Citadel scenery, including one nexus syphon, one guardian idol, two domicile shells, and one all-important pile of pillars. In short, it’s everything you need to get started.
Everything except paints and tools, that is – but wouldn’t you know, we’ve got you covered there too.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Paint + Tools Set
Yes, while the armies available in the three starter sets are easy to build and don’t need glue, you still need to snip them off their sprues, dust them down, and give them a lick of paint.
This set contains a pair of clippers, a mouldline remover, and a starter brush to get the basics painted. On top of that, you get 13 paints in 12ml pots – including all the essential colours you need to get both forces Battle Ready – as well as a Technical paint to ensure your bases look great. It’s the perfect complement to any of the sets above.
But perhaps you’ve already chosen your faction and want to collect them and them alone? We’ve got you covered there, too, with two smaller paint sets.
Stormcast Eternals Vindictors + Paint Set
This neat set is great for any budding paragon of Order. With six paints, a starter brush, and two push-fit Stormcast Eternals, it’s the perfect taste of more to come or the ideal bolster to your forces if you’re splitting one of the starter sets with a friend or family member.
Orruk Warclans Gutrippaz + Paint Set
Not to be outdone, the Kruleboyz are getting a paint set of their own. This box also comes with six paints and a starter brush, as well as three push-fit Gutrippaz. It’s ideal for anyone choosing to collect the vicious hunter-killers of the swamps of Ghur.
