GW: Space Marines in der Wochenvorschau
Die Elitekrieger des Adeptus Astartes, die Space Marines, kehren kommenden Samstag mit einem neuen Codex in die aktuelle Edition von Warhammer 40.000 zurück, zusammen mit einigen Verstärkungen.
Sunday Preview – Codex: Space Marines Slams into Action
Note that the Space Marines releases will all be on a two week pre-order period. This means they will be released on the 14th of October, so you have plenty of time to complete your armouring ritual before deployment. Shall we have a look at the good stuff?
Codex: Space Marines
Tyranids are running rampant across the galaxy, but the Space Marines are ready to fight back. The new codex is packed with datasheets, detachment rules, background lore, beautiful miniatures showcases, and Crusade content aplenty. This huge 216-page book contains seven complete detachments with a wide variety of abilities and playstyles.
Any Space Marine army can use these rules – including divergent chapters like the Space Wolves and Blood Angels. Want to see what happens when the Black Templars try being sneaky for once in a Vanguard Spearhead? Now you can!
Of course, if you’re one of the First Company Veterans, a regular codex just won’t do. That’s why there’s a luxury special edition featuring unique cover art, foil details, and fetching gilt page edges. This is strictly limited to just a few thousand copies.
Captain with Jump Pack
Space Marine Captains aren’t just strategic masterminds – they’re also indomitable warriors in their own right, and many prefer to smash straight into enemy ranks strapped to a jump pack. This new kit gives you the option to send your eager leader flying into close combat with several different weapon choices, as well as both helmeted and unhelmeted head options.
Chaplain in Terminator Armour
Deliver sermons on the front lines safely with the latest in personal priesthood protection – the Chaplain in Terminator Armour. This walking behemoth of righteous fury is all-but immovable on the battlefield, and that’s before he straps on his optional relic shield. He can even choose between two variants of crozius arcanum.
Captains and Chapter Masters are often accompanied by some of the finest heroes of their chapter as a personal bodyguard. The squad’s Ancient carries a fluttering company banner to inspire his comrades and boost their Objective Control, while the Company Champion duels enemy leaders before they can even think of getting near the Captain. The Veterans meanwhile lay down a hail of bolt fire. This kit also includes a versatile Captain with multiple options.
The bulked-up Terminators first seen in the Leviathan boxed set are back with a full multi-part plastic kit, including classic weapons like the heavy flamer and cyclone missile launcher. These five plastic Terminators are packed with options including a wide range of heads and chainfists for all who want them, in case you’re up against a legion of stubborn Vehicles and fortifications.
Jump Pack Intercessors
Take to the skies and deliver hot, fresh chainsword death at an indeterminate speed with a band of Assault Intercessors equipped with the latest in jump pack technology. These five multi-part plastic assault troops cause massive damage with the weight of their charge alone, while the Sergeant has the option of a hand flamer, plasma pistol, power sword, and power fist in place of his regular equipment.
Sternguard Veteran Squad
Space Marines with many years of service are organised into Sternguard Veteran squads, who wield finely tuned boltguns and combi-weapons. This new multi-part plastic kit builds five Veterans with your choice of Sternguard boltguns or combi-weapons, and includes the brand new pyrecannon heavy weapon as a heavy weapon option.*
Yes, that is a back banner.
The leader of Strike Force Agastus gets a standalone release, ready to join your Space Marine squads and grant the powerful Lethal Hits ability to all of their weapons. This intensely customisable kit can be equipped in many different ways, from the classic power fist and plasma pistol combo to power swords, bolt rifles, or the dreaded pointing finger.
The best place for a gigantic walking death machine is right in the middle of the enemy, and the Brutalis Dreadnought is equipped to take full advantage of the sheer everything-shredding power of its mighty fists and talons. Gone are the heavy guns of the Redemptor or the missiles of the Ballistus – this dreadnought is squarely in the business of tearing things apart in close combat, and business is booming.
While your Brutalis Dreadnought is having the time of their life in melee combat, some long-range fire support is just the ticket to keep it from being overwhelmed.
The Desolation Squad is the final word in man-portable missile-flinging firepower, able to lay down a barrage of high explosives at impressive range while sitting squarely behind the safety of some good cover. They even have a choice between superfrag or superkrak missiles, so you can pick whatever’s best against the unfortunate subject of your ire.
Combat Patrol: Space Marines
Take an elite, flexible force into Combat Patrol and kickstart your Space Marines collection with this fine assemblage of powerful heroes. Five Terminators, five Infernus Marines, a Terminator Captain, and a Terminator Librarian – whom you may have seen grinding up some Tyranids in the Leviathan box set earlier this year – put out the damage of many more men, and are tough as nails to boot.
Datasheet Cards: Space Marines & Space Marines Dice Set
Add some handy accessories to your army with a set of 99 reference cards – featuring every Space Marines datasheet, separate Combat Patrol cards, and an armoury reference – and a pack of 16 pearlescent blue, plastic dice with metallic silver pips and the faction logo of the Adeptus Astartes on the six. The cards have gold gilt edging as befits the mightiest warriors of mankind.
Chapter Approved: Leviathan Mission Deck
This pack of cards is an essential companion for playing Matched Play games of Warhammer 40,000, first available in the Leviathan box set and now coming to shelves separately. Drawing cards from each deck allows you to quickly construct an exciting mission, and execute Gambits to bring trailing players back into the game.
