GW: Wochenvorschau und Vampirin
Kommenden Samstag kommt der große Schwung an weiteren Neuheiten für die Lumineth Realm-lords, der nächste Band der Broken Realms Reihe, eine neue Space Marine Primaris Action Figur und eine neue Vampirin wurde enthüllt.
Sunday Preview – The Call of the Wind
Let’s kick things off in the Mortal Realms, as Teclis is about to lay down some serious divine intervention in his very own Broken Realms book.
Broken Realms: Teclis
The second book in the Broken Realms series sees the Archmage Teclis, one of the twin gods of Hysh, taking matters into his own hands to undo the damage wrought by Nagash’s Necroquake. The seismic events in the narrative lead to an inevitable (and long-awaited) showdown between the two mightiest magic-wielders of the world-that-was, both of whom have transcended to godhood and are more powerful than ever. To say that you should expect pyrotechnics doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Not only is the next chapter in the Broken Realms saga a thrilling read, but as with the first book, Morathi, it includes loads of rules that let you bring the events of the narrative to life on the battlefield. Within its pages are six battleplans, as well as a host of datasheets for the new Hurakan units for the Lumineth Realm-lords, warscroll battalions from a number of the warring factions, allegiance abilities, and more. In fact, if you already have the current edition of Battletome: Lumineth Realm-lords, Broken Realms: Teclis includes everything you need to bring their rules right up to date and in-line with the new battletome.
Broken Realms: Teclis will be available to pre-order from next weekend as an epub, hardback, or as one of 700 copies of a deluxe limited edition.
Broken Realms Army Sets
Speaking of the warscroll battalions that feature in Broken Realms: Teclis, four new army sets are coming alongside the book. These sets – Invidian Plaguehost, Xintil War-magi, Mortevell’s Helcourt, and Horrek’s Dreadlance – include a selection of key units inspired by the book’s narrative, as well as saving you money compared to purchasing them individually.
The units in each box can be fielded together in battle using their matching warscroll battalion in Broken Realms: Teclis. These narrative-driven rules let you represent the actual combatants and offer them unique abilities that match the way they fight and the heroes that lead them.
Battletome: Lumineth Realm-lords
The new battletome brings you right up to speed with the ongoing narrative of the Lumineth Realm-lords and introduces the Hurakan, the Hyshian aelves who’ve become attuned to the spirits of the wind.
If you want to consolidate all there is to know about the Lumineth Realm-lords, both in terms of their lore and their rules (including their full suite of new warscrolls, allegiance abilities, warscroll battalions, and more), make sure you pre-order your copy from next weekend.
You can pick up Battletome: Lumineth Realm-lords in hardback or epub formats, as well as a super-shiny (they are from Hysh, after all) limited edition of the book, also strictly limited to 700 copies.
Now, brace yourself, as ALL of these amazing Lumineth Realm-lords units will be available to pre-order from next Saturday.
Lyrior Uthralle, Warden of Ymetrica
Lyrior Uthralle is known by many titles – Lord Regent Supreme, Voice of the Lord Phoenix, Warden of Ymetrica – for he is no typical lord of the Vanari. He’s the figurehead for all of the Tyrionic nations of Hysh, both speaking and acting with the authority of the twin god Tyrion.
If you seek a worthy commander for your armies on the battlefield, look no further than this consummate warrior and supernally gifted leader of the Lumineth. Armed with his Daemonbane lance, Lyrior Uthralle will sear through all who oppose you with effortless ease.
Lyrior Uthralle may be a legendary hero of the Lumineth, but he’s not the only Lord Regent who leads the glittering ranks of the Lumineth into battle riding atop a lightcourser steed. The kit can alternatively be assembled as a Lord Regent of your own creation – perfect for tooling up with artefacts to suit your army’s preferred fighting style.
If it’s the fast cavalry you’re after, look no further than a unit or two of Hurakan Windchargers. Riding atop their Treerunner steeds, they sweep into the fray to deliver killing arrows with unerring accuracy. There are no finer mounted archers to be found anywhere in the Mortal Realms.
This set includes five Hurakan Windchargers – a perfect unit for harassing enemy flanks and picking off vulnerable targets.
Rally your Lumineth Realm-lords and inspire them to victory with a Vanari Bannerblade. These storied champions of the Vanari are tasked with holding aloft and defending enchanted Hyshian World Banners, their power so radiant that they can blind the unworthy should they dare to look upon them.
Not only will these impressive banner bearers serve as stunning centrepieces for a Lumineth Realm-lords collection, but they’re pretty handy in a fight, too. Your opponent will certainly have to think twice before trying to wrest the standard from the hands of a Vanari Bannerblade.
These symbol-mages paint aetherquartz runes of enchanted light into the very fabric of the realms. A Calligrave blesses the ground to aid their allies and thwart their foes with rippling waves of magic that emanate from their glowing calligraphy.
These arcane specialists serve as excellent support Heroes, using their magic and enchantments from behind the front lines to help dictate the ebb and flow of the battle – not that they’re a slouch with a blade either should they get involved in the fighting.
Sevireth, Lord of the Seventh Wind
The wrathful manifestation of one of the greatest geomantic spirits of the wind, Sevireth is a terrible foe for any who would seek to corrupt the sacred purity Hysh. Sevireth can traverse the battlefield in the blink of an eye and cut down his victims from afar with Enathrai, his giant magical bow.
Sevireth is so swift that his presence alone ensures that you’ll present a threat anywhere on the battlefield. Between his lightning speed and the reach of his great bow, your opponent will have nowhere to hide.
This kit can alternatively be assembled as one of the myriad other Hurakan Spirits of the Wind that fight alongside the Lumineth. Like Sevireth, their speed is beyond compare, and they wield a Bow of Wind’s Vengeance with which they can smite their quarry at will.
The wisest of the Hurakan aelves are the Windmages. They’ve become so attuned to the winds of Hysh that they’re more at home sweeping across the skies than on foot, borne aloft by a roiling cloud of aelementor energy.
Being a kindred spirit to the winds certainly has its perks. Your Windmage can effortlessly relocate to wherever they’re needed and command the winds to lend aid to your units or buffet your foes.
Vanari Starshard Ballistas
Is a towering Warstomper Mega-Gargant about to ruin your day? Maybe a pack of murderous Wrathmongers is set to blend its way through your lines. What you need is a Vanari Starshard.
This beautifully crafted ballista launches two long spears in perfect unison to skewer the enemies of the Lumineth. What’s more, the enchanted light bound into their tips bursts forth upon impact to dazzle anyone who was lucky enough to avoid being instantly turned into a kebab.
They may hail from the Tyrionic nations, but Vanari Bladelords are learned scholars versed in the Teclian arts, as well as the way of the sword. On the battlefield, their mastery of both the physical and mental aspects of the martial arts makes them ideal guardians for the Scinari mages and mystics who instruct them.
These deadly swordmasters may be few, but they can cut their way through many times their own number. Vanari Bladelords adapt their fighting style to deliver flawless, executing blows or a whirlwind of rapid strikes in the blink of an eye. Whether you use them as close protection for your mages or to guard the flanks of your Auralan Warden phalanxes, this set of five Vanari Bladelords will serve you well.
The Loreseekers of the Scinari are warriors and mages both, their skill in both fields far exceeding even that of the Vanari Bladelords. Theirs is the solemn duty of discovering and cataloguing the lore of the Mortal Realms with which to enlighten their people, requiring them to travel far and wide – and often alone.
Unlike the more vulnerable mages of the Lumineth, a Loremaster needs no protection – they’re more than capable of defending themselves and even fight more effectively as independent operatives. As skilled fighters and spellcasters, Scinari Loremasters are valuable assets to any Lumienth Realm-lords army.
Ellania and Ellathor, Eclipsian Warsages
Ellania and Ellathor are prodigal twins of the Lumineth who exemplify the Teclian and Tyrionic martial philosophies. Never parted, they’re fated to wander the Mortal Realms in search of enlightenment.
The twins are a devastating presence on the battlefield, able to lay low enemies beyond count with blade and magical barrage. Ellania and Ellathor can join any army from the forces of Order and make for a great addition to a number of factions.
Perched atop a realmstone-rich metalith that floats gracefully above the ground, a Shrine Luminor is both a safe haven from the corrupting influence of Chaos and a nexus of power from which the mages of the Lumineth can wield their Hyshian magic with even greater potency.
By garrisoning a Lumineth Hero from your army atop a Shrine Luminor, they can provide several augmentative abilities to those around them. Not only that, but they’ll look awesome on the tabletop while doing it.
With all these stunning new kits, the Lumineth Realm-lords range more than doubles in size from next weekend. Pretty cool, huh?
Warscroll Cards: Lumineth Realm-lords
To help you keep track of the hugely expanded range of Lumineth Realm-lords, be sure to grab yourself a set of Warscroll Cards. This set includes cards for all 28 units and endless spells available to the Lumineth Realm-lords, as well as a handy sheet of push-out card tokens for tracking battlefields effects. Never leave Hysh without them.
White Scars Primaris Intercessor Action Figure
You can pre-order Bandai’s White Scars Primaris Intercessor Action Figure next Saturday from Games-Workshop.com – for ONE WEEK ONLY – as well as the Bandai webstore. Whether you’re looking to add to your Bandai collection or a son of the Great Khan is the action figure you’ve been waiting for, make sure you secure yours.
Und im Rahmen des New Model Monday wurde dann noch ein neues Modell vorgestellt.
She Has an Endless Thirst for Blood, and for a Soulblight Vampire, That’s Saying Something!
…Bow before Lady Annika, the Thirsting Blade!
Elegant? Check. Graceful? Check. Likely to tear out your throat in the blink of an eye and gorge upon your lifeblood? Definitely!
Though she may at first appear every bit the ostentatious noblewoman, her serene poise belies a bloodlust that’s quite unlike any other of her kind. In battle, she plunges headlong into the fray to slake her terrible thirst. The fell enchantments that lace the Blade Proboscian are able to drain its victims of their vital fluids in an instant, which only serves to further fuel its mistress’ bloodletting until all around her lie slain. The Thirsting Blade indeed!
Lady Annika may be volatile and incredibly dangerous even for a Soulblight Vampire, but we’re sure you’ll agree that her miniature is absolutely stunning.
