Warhammer 40k: Neue Space Marine Battleforces
Games Workshop haben vier neue Battleforces für die Marines angekündigt.
A new year of Warhammer means Armies on Parade is on its way, and we’re kicking things off with New Year, New Army. And as luck would have it, many awesome battleforces have been released over the Christmas holiday – an excellent starting point on your next Warhammer project. But while the Imperial Fists and Raven Guard got their due, several other First Founding chapters were nowhere to be seen.
That changes now.
Four brand-new boxes stuffed with Space Marines are coming to a Warhammer store near you very soon, featuring the Iron Hands, Salamanders, White Scars, and Ultramarines. Let’s have a look at what’s inside.
Iron Hands: March of Iron Strike Force
Dreadnoughts are some of the most powerful weapons in the Space Marines’ arsenal, and the March of Iron Strike Force is all about getting them into the thick of the fight. Two hulking Redemptor Dreadnoughts are backed up by the engineering prowess of a Primaris Techmarine and Iron Father Feirros himself, while 10 Intercessors follow in their wake to secure the ground.
Both Characters can make battlefield repairs on the Dreadnoughts, with Feirros restoring 3 wounds every turn, so it’ll take some serious firepower to bring them down. Just add a few Gladiator tanks and you’ll prove that the flesh is weak and the machine is strong.
Recommended paints: Abaddon Black, Corax White, Leadbelcher, Ironbreaker, Basilicanum Grey
Salamanders: Warforged Strike Force
Plunge into the fires of battle with Adrax Agatone and a solid wall of 20 resilient Intercessors. Then hammer the anvil of war with the gravis-armoured might of three Eradicators and three Aggressors. The Warforged Strike Force is as Salamanders as they come, and provides you with all the sturdy CORE Infantry you need to make good use of the chapter’s new secondary objective.
Salamanders look striking on the battlefield and are an excellent opportunity to practise your flame details, which are sure to stand out in the next Armies on Parade award show. A Bladeguard Veteran bodyguard for Adrax and an Impulsor to ride in won’t go amiss, either if you’re looking to expand your force.
Recommended paints: Warpstone Glow, Moot Green, Corvus Black, Troll Slayer Orange, Casandora Yellow
White Scars: Storm of Chogoris
If your ideal defence is a blisteringly fast offence, the Storm of Chogoris is the battleforce for you. Built around a dependable core of six Primaris Outriders and two Invader ATVs led by a Primaris Chaplain on Bike, this express delivery of pain discards weak and feeble legs for the mechanical purity of the wheel.
Except Kor’sarro Khan – who’s taken a break from the saddle to get a keener eye over the battlefield. With the bulk of your fast-movers seen to, a few squads of Assault Intercessors and a couple of Stormhawk Interceptors are all you need to round out a characterful White Scars army.
Recommended paints: White Scar, Celestra Grey, Soulblight Grey, Mephiston Red, Wild Rider Red
Space Marines: Scions of Macragge
It wouldn’t be a Space Marine party without the Ultramarines, and the final battleforce shows them at their versatile best. You get objective control from 10 Intercessors, supreme firepower from 10 Hellblasters, melee mastery from three Bladeguard Veterans, tactical genius from Marneus Calgar, and psychic dominance from Chief Librarian Tigurius. Two members of the Victrix Guard have even joined their Chapter Master for the ride.
With every base covered, you can take this starting force in any direction you desire. Double down on the plasma barrage with some Primaris Inceptors, then bring the might of Roboute Guilliman, the Avenging Son, onto the battlefield.
Recommended paints: Macragge Blue, Calgar Blue, Retributor Armour, Nuln Oil, Evil Sunz Scarlet
You don’t just get a selection of units in these battleforces, either. Each one comes with a set of detailed upgrade sprues and transfer sheets, so you can make your new Space Marines look like they’ve walked right out of your chosen Chapter’s forge. Flaming braziers, curved chainswords, and bionic enhancements are all here for the enterprising Warhammer hobbyist.
You’ll be able to get your hands on these bumper boxes very soon, with more information on the first leg of Armies on Parade 2023 following close behind. Stay tuned to Warhammer-Community.com and be among the first to find out by signing up to our newsletter.
