GW: Hexfire Box, Grey Knights und Thousand Sons
Kommenden Samstag kommt eine neue 2-Armee Box für Warhammer 40.000, Hexfire, die zugehörigen Fraktionen erhalten auch direkt ihre Codex Bücher und für Blood Bowl gibt es auch noch eine Kleinigkeit.
Sunday Preview – Thousand Sons and Grey Knights GaloreYou know the drill. It’s Sunday, and we’re here to show you all the shiny stuff that’ll be available to pre-order from next week – and Throne, is it a big one. Let’s take a cheeky peek at what’s coming up.Told you it was a big one. Dustpans at the ready.
Grapple for the world of Hexenfast with this magical battlebox, which is packed with 29 miniatures – the brand-new Infernal Master, five Scarab Occult Terminators, 10 Tzaangors (complete with upgrade sprues) and a Tzaangor Shaman for the Thousand Sons, and a fresh incarnation of the legendary Castellan Crowe, 10 Grey Knights Purifiers (which can also be built as a Strike Squad, Interceptor Squad, or Purgation Squad), and a hulking Nemesis Dreadknight for the Grey Knights.
This box is the first place you can get these two new Characters, and it offers significant savings when compared to picking up the contents separately. It also gives you the chance to answer a foundational Warhammer 40,000 conundrum: space wizards vs. psy-cops – who would win?
Aside from the miniatures, Hexfire contains rules for narrative and Crusade games, as well as datasheets for each unit.
Codex: Grey Knights
If sorcerous heretics and warp-spawned filth aren’t your thing, there are plenty of pre-orders for Grey Knights outside of Hexfire.
Codex: Grey Knights has all the rules for the 666th Chapter – including no fewer than 32 datasheets – updated for the new edition of Warhammer 40,000, as well as heaps of lore. It also contains Grey Knights Crusade rules which allow your Characters to discover and battle their own Daemon nemeses.
There will of course be a rather dreamy collector’s edition available, too.
Codex: Thousand Sons
Likewise, if you think goody-goody Grey Knights are altogether lacking in either attitude or Daemon familiars, there’s enough on its way for the Thousand Sons to build yourself a palace of forbidden knowledge.
Codex: Thousand Sons will be available in standard hardback and a beautiful collector’s edition. This awe-inspiring book has everything you’d expect, including fully updated rules for the 41st Millennium’s premier magic users, a bespoke Crusade system, stunning artwork, and intriguing lore.
Dice and Datacards
Rest assured that your new codexes and miniatures there will be accompanied by themed dice sets and datacards, also available to pre-order next Saturday.
The dice are of course very pretty, a perfect accoutrement to demon-hunters and -huggers alike, whether they’re in silvered ceramite or absolutely stacked with gold trim.
Datacards are indispensable gaming aids, letting you keep track of your Stratagems, psychic powers and… well, everything else.
“Alright, alright,” we hear you cry. “That all looks great, but enough Warhammer 40,000. What else is up?”
Well, since you ask…
The Shambling Undead
Yep, everybody’s favourite team of shuffling corpses is getting its due.
Pick up a Team Card Pack and a Dice Set themed to your Shambling Undead Blood Bowl Team and take cemetery chic to whole new heights.
And to top it all off, there’s a matching Pitch and Dugouts set to leave nobody in any doubt about your team allegiance.
