Sunday Preview – Celebrate the New Year with Arks of Omen and Battleforces

Happy new year, everybody! With 2022 over, and a new journey around the sun beginning, we thought this would be a great time to take a break and not release any new miniatures for a while… Nah, just kidding. It’s the 1st of January, and there’s already loads to talk about which will be available to pre-order next weekend.

First up is the start of the latest narrative ark… we mean arc… that will shape the future of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Arks of Omen is here, in the form of book one in the series: Abaddon.

Available in standard and collectors’ editions, Arks of Omen: Abaddon kicks off the new story with a team-up between the eponymous Despoiler and the new daemon on the block, Vashtorr the Arkifane.

As well as spinning an epic yarn, Arks of Omen: Abaddon lets you take part in the saga of the Balefleets by introducing rules and missions for Boarding Actions – a whole new way to play Warhammer 40,000, offering fast-paced games set within the confines of voidcraft, space hulks, and orbital stations.

Of course, to play games in a spaceship, you’ll first need a spaceship – or at least a board’s worth of spaceship terrain, such as the contents of the Boarding Actions Terrain Set. This set contains two sturdy double-sided gaming boards and 68 pieces of massively modular terrain, which can be used for the Boarding Actions missions in the Arks of Omen series.

Fans of larger games also have something to look forward to in the Chapter Approved: Arks of Omen: Grand Tournament Mission Pack. This is the complete guide to matched play for the first half of 2023, with revised tournament missions, new and updated secondary objectives for every faction, and a brand-new Detachment that gives players much more flexibility when building their armies.

If you want to muster a fresh army to take advantage of the Arks of Omen Detachment, there are also four new Adeptus Astartes Battleforces that’ll give you a great starting point – or help you expand on your army with loads of models and Chapter-themed upgrades.

The Scions of Macragge Battleforce box features two of the greatest heroes of the Ultramarines, alongside the solid core of a Codex-compliant collection in the form of Intercessors, Hellblasters, and Bladeguard Veterans.

The White Scars Battleforce is the Storm of Chogoris – perfect for Fast Attack fanatics, with a Primaris Chaplain on Bike joined by two squads of Outriders and a pair of Invader ATVs, plus Kor’sarro Khan and his adorable bird pal.

On the other end of the scale are the Iron Hands, whose March of Iron Strike Force teams up two hulking Redemptor Dreadnoughts with 10 Intercessors, a Primaris Techmarine, and Iron Father Feirros.

Finally, the Salamanders Warforged Strike Force is great for fans of infantry assaults – not to mention flamers and meltas – with 20 Intercessors, three Eradicators, three Aggressors, and Adrax Agatone to oversee them all.

Each of these Battleforce sets will give you a strong start to a Space Marines army, tailored to the way you want to play.

You can also add to each of these collections with the latest collection of Space Marine Heroes, which features six different Space Marines to collect, packed in blind bags. Try your luck and see which Blood Angels battle-brother you receive, or buy a box and get all six, with two extras! They can be painted as any Chapter, and can be built with a choice of helmet or bare head.

For the more traitorous among you, a set of Black Legion dice are also on the way, containing 15 dice in two-tone swirly black with golden pips, sporting the effortlessly ironic Eye of Horus sigil in place of the six.

From the grim darkness of the far future, to the equally grim darkness of the slightly nearer future, there are more Warhammer: The Horus Heresy torsos and shoulder pads coming for Loyalists and Traitors alike.

Warhammer 40.000 ist unter anderem bei unseren Partnern Fantasywelt und Taschengelddieb erhältlich.

    • War bei den Heroas-Sammelserien bisher immer so. Ich warte ja darauf, dass in denen auch mal Primaris Marines kommen.

      Die Blood Angels sind ja nur eine Malempfehlung und passend zum Design der Boxen gehalten. Das sind am Ende des Tages reine Blanko Marines ohne ordensspezifische Symbolik. Die Minis kann man auch als Ultramarines, Salamanders und Co. anmalen.

      • Tja.. aber zumindest können zwei von ihnen laufen 😀
        Mir gefallen die Primaris, modelltechnisch besser…

      • Sobald es vernünftige Devastoren, Sturm-Marines mit Sprungmodulen und Terminatoren gibt, dann können wir nochmal über die Primaris reden. Optional wären noch coole Kettenfahrzeuge. Und exakt so lange werde ich weiter in meinen Bart grummeln.^^

        Wenn die alte Range aber Primarisisiert wurde, dann ist das völlig okay – die neuen Modelle haben einfach die besseren Proportionen und exzellente Detailschärfe.

      • Och, das ist für einen wohlgehegten Groll noch gar kein Alter… Ich bin zB wegen diesem modernen Borbarad-Quatsch noch stinkig. Meon Kaiser ist Hal.

      • @Martin: das ist zumindest ein besseres argument als das häufige „mememememe, find die blöd mememememe“ das man so oft hört und erkennt das offensichtliche (proportionen und details) an.

        @Bort: ja, und die tzimisce sollten die den sabbat führen.
