Sunday Preview – The Age of Darkness DescendsThe long wait is over – and the Long War begins. Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – The Age of Darkness boxed set comes to pre-order this Saturday alongside a bundle of extras.The new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy has been revamped and rebalanced, and it’s arriving with a huge range of supporting products so you can get battling for the fate of Humanity right out of the traps.
Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – The Age of Darkness
This is the big box to end all others – an absolutely colossal set containing an inordinate amount of plastic, plus everything else you need to start fighting epic battles to decide the fate of the galaxy. It’s available in English, French, and German.
You get a mammoth 54 plastic miniatures – that’s two Legion Praetors, 10 Cataphractii Terminators, 40 highly customisable Tactical Space Marines in Mk VI power armour, one Contemptor Dreadnought, and one Spartan Assault Tank. This is the basis of two substantial forces, or one incredibly mighty army – and all but the Terminators are completely new models.
There’s a 336-page hardback rulebook filled to bursting with everything you need to know, including extensive background information on one of the richest science fiction settings in the world, as well as comprehensive rules for this tactically rich tabletop wargame. There’s also a 36-page construction guide for all your lovely new models, introductory army lists for all the models you get in the box, and two four-page rules reference sheets.
It doesn’t stop there. You also get 20 six-sided dice, one six-sided scatter dice, two blast templates, one flame template, two classic-style red plastic measuring sticks, and a transfer sheet for good measure. In short – it’s huge.
And that’s not even all! If you order the set directly from the Games Workshop webstore, you’ll bag yourself an exclusive reaction token and card set (while stocks last). That means eight metal tokens and a deck of eight cards to keep track of the game’s six Reactions and two Advanced Reactions detailed in the main rulebook.
The Liber Astartes is Loyalists’ bible, the complete repository of rules, lore, and unit profiles for each of the nine Legiones Astartes who kept the faith and stayed true to their Emperor.
This weighty 344-page hardback tome is unstintingly comprehensive, cramming in everything a Loyalist general requires to field a Loyalist Legiones Astartes army in games of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy. There are shared profiles for many units common to every Legion, plus unique rules for the nine, including Unit Profiles, Warlord Traits, Rites of War, Wargear, Faction Abilities, and Unique Reactions. It is available in English, French, and German.
The Liber Hereticus
Ignore the mewling of the lackwit lapdogs who comprise the armies of the false Emperor – the Liber Hereticus is the only tome any serious commander requires in the Age of Darkness.
This 352-page hardback contains the full roster, rules, and background for all nine Traitor Legions, so you can wage war for the glory of the Ruinous Powers. It includes shared unit profiles, plus unique units for each Legion, as well as Warlord Traits, Rites of War, Wargear, Faction Abilities, and Unique Reactions. It is available in English, French, and German.
Legiones Astartes Special Weapons Upgrade Set
When a bolter and chainsword won’t do the business, the Tactical Squads of the Legiones Astartes turn to special weapons, forming Legion Tactical Support Squads. With six varieties to choose from in this comprehensive set of upgrades, no battlefield conundrum will go unanswered. This set contains 10 weapons each of six types – flamers, plasma guns, meltaguns, rotor cannons, volkite chargers, and volkite calivers. They’re designed to fit seamlessly onto the Mk VI Tactical Squad, with hands moulded onto the guns to fit your Space Marines’ arms.
Legiones Astartes Heavy Weapons Upgrade Set (Missile Launchers and Heavy Bolters)
Sometimes you have to bring the really big guns, and that’s where this set of 10 missile launchers, 10 heavy bolters, and associated arms comes in. These are fully compatible with the Mk VI Tactical Squad, allowing you to build them into a Legion Heavy Support Squad to hammer away at hard targets.
Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
Talking of hard targets, here’s the Kratos Heavy Assault Tank – a battlefield behemoth that’ll send your seven-foot sci-fi supersoldiers scampering for safety. It’s tough, fast, and positively bristling with arcane armaments, which you can customise to your dark heart’s content. There are three options for the turret gun, four apiece for the hull weapons and the sponsons, nine choices of pintle gun, plus dozer blades, searchlights, and gunners. Better yet, you can field this beast in squadrons of two.
The Kratos will be earning itself a Warhammer 40,000 datasheet to boot. While it’s rare on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium, it’s not extinct – and it packs just the same wallop.
Deimos Pattern Rhino
Based on ancient, forgotten STC technology, the humble Rhino has been humanity’s workhorse APC for longer than anyone can remember, and the variant that saw most use in the 31st Millennium was the Deimos.
This valiant chariot is based on one of the earliest tank designs ever created by Games Workshop, albeit with a vastly improved kit brought bang up to date for the 3rd Millennium. It’s the perfect way to ferry your footslogging Legion Tactical Squads between objectives.
Mk III Tactical Squad
If Space Marines in Mk VI “Corvus” armour are simply too new-fangled for your tastes, these marines in Mk III “Iron” armour might just be sufficiently old-school. This is an existing set of plastic sculpts which has been repackaged for the new edition – but this time you get 20 highly detailed multipose Legiones Astartes in a single box.
Mk IV Tactical Squad
The multipose plastic Mk IV Tactical Squad is also being rereleased for the glorious new edition of the Warhammer: Horus Heresy. Once again, you get 20 highly detailed Space Marines in “Maximus” armour ready to join your Legion and defend/conquer the Imperium of Man (delete as appropriate).
The Chief Librarian of the Thousand Sons Legion was one of the most powerful psykers in the galaxy at the time of the Horus Heresy. Previously only available in the out-of-print Burning of Prospero set, Ahriman’s plastic model is being released separately for the first time – so any Thousand Sons commander can get the drop on the enemy by manipulating fate and redeploying units at the last moment.
Carta Galactica: The Imperium of Mankind
The Imperium of Mankind, you say? Sounds pretty big. What does it look like? We’re glad you asked – this map shows the entire Imperium as it stood at the cusp of the Horus Heresy as the 31st Millennium dawned. It’s printed on a massive 1,000mm x 890mm fold-out poster, and it’s the essential guide to the galactic state of play.
The Horus Heresy Legion Transfer Sheets
Make your new army your own with 18 separate transfer sheets – one for each Legion. Each of these contains more than 500 decals, including vehicle markings, script, and assorted infantry markings, tailored to your chosen side.
The Horus Heresy Legion Dice
Likewise, you can pledge yourself fully to your chosen Legion with one of 18 sets of themed dice. You get 20 six-sided dice in each set, in the colours of the corresponding Legion – one of which is a scatter dice. Each Legion has its emblem stamped on the 6 face.
