Today’s Pre Orders – Battleforces, Necromunda Delaque, Blood Bowl Shambling Undead

Another bumper assortment of pre-order goodies up on Games Workshop this morning! Christmas Battleforce bundles, new rulebooks and Delaque gang for Necromunda, and Shambling Undead and more goodies for Blood Bowl!

Battleforces

Adeptus Titanicus Titan Battlegroup

In conventional battles, the presence of a lone Titan – even a Scout class such as a Warhound – can be sufficient to guarantee victory. However, when Titans go to war en masse, they are formed into groups, each operating under the command of their most senior Princeps for the duration of a campaign.

Assemble a powerful battlegroup of Titans and dominate your opponents in games of Adeptus Titanicus with this set of 4 Titans – a Warlord Battle Titan with Volcano Cannon, a Reaver Battle Titan and 2 Warhound Scout Titans. These can be fielded as an Axiom Battle Maniple, leveraging the Might of the Omnissiah to push through the din of war and issue commands despite adverse conditions. Included in the box:

– A Warlord Battle Titan with Volcano Cannon: standing approximately 6” tall, this representation of a colossal god-engine is unbelievably detailed and posable. It is made up of 144 components – while it is possible (and easiest) to assemble this miniature in exactly the pose depicted on the cover of the comprehensive assembly guide found in the box, the advanced hobbyist will find that the hip, knee and ankle joints can be modelled in virtually any position imaginable. As a result, no 2 Titans ever need be built in the same pose, and the details – pistons, hydraulics, exposed machinery and power systems, ventilation – can be truly admired.

The components for the Warlord Battle Titan are split between 3 frames: 1 featuring the inner skeleton, leg and torso assemblies that build the main structure, 1 frame of carapace and armour plates that give the Titan its distinctive shape, with Great Crusade and Age of Darkness armourials allowing you to display your models’ allegiance (blank examples are included) and a frame of weapons – a Warlord Battle Titan boasts 2 volcano cannon, which are an integral part of the arm assemblies, and 2 carapace-mounted apocalypse missile launchers. The kit also features a choice of 2 heads;

– A Reaver Battle Titan: particularly aggressive-looking, even compared to its contemporaries, this highly-detailed Titan is easily recognised by its flattened face profile and angular carapace. It comes armed with several weapon options – a laser blaster and gatling blaster are available, with a power fist that can be modelled either clenched or open. Above the carapace – of which 2 are included, 1 blank – resides an apocalypse missile launcher, either side of which are the shoulder pads (3 sets are included, 1 set loyalist, 1 set traitor and 1 set blank.) Further modelling options include the knee pads – 2 of these are blank, with 1 depicting the symbol of the Opus Titanicus;

– 2 Warhound Scout Titans: Hunched forward, its carapace and head providing it with an exceptionally aggressive and purposeful profile, the Warhound Scout Titan is easily distinguished from its brethren by its uniquely canine head, which sits level with the weaponry attached to the hardpoints on either side. The rest of the Titan is relatively spartan; designed to move quickly rather than stand in a single place, its legs are surprisingly thin – while still far from lightweight. Each kit includes 4 different heads, 4 different carapace designs (2 are Loyalist, 2 are Traitor), shoulder assemblies with Traitor and Loyalist icons available and 3 different sets of greaves – an Imperial eagle design, an Opus Titanica design and a plain set. A small amount of posability is available, as the waist can be turned to provide the illusion of movement.

This set includes 2 Citadel 80mm Round bases, a Citadel 105mm Oval base and a Citadel 120mm Oval base. Also included are 4 transfer sheets with heraldry for the following Legios: Gryphonicus, Fureans, Astorium, Atarus, and Mortis.

 

 

 

Imperial Fists Supremacy Force

The Supremacy Forces of the Imperial Fists are deployed on the most gruelling of missions, yet for these defenders of Terra there is no fortress that cannot be conquered and no army that cannot be ground to dust. Even against overwhelming odds they shout praise to the Emperor as they battle their way to grim victory.

The Imperial Fists are renowned for their fire discipline and mastery of siege warfare, and the units found within the Supremacy Force set exemplify these traits. From large units of Intercessors and Hellblasters to Aggressors and a Redemptor Dreadnought, you’ll not want for firepower after picking up this set! Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll find:

– 3 Primaris Aggressors, who can be assembled either with auto boltstorm gauntlets and fragstorm grenade launchers or flamestorm gauntlets.
– 1 Redemptor Dreadnought, the kit for which includes all of its available weapon options.
– 3 Imperial Fists Primaris Upgrade Frames, each containing 5 Intercessor shoulder pads, 1 Intercessor Sergeant shoulder pad and 3 x Aggressor shoulder pads, all featuring the insignia of the Imperial Fists Chapter. Also include on the frames are 3 heads (1 helmeted, 1 with rebreather, 1 with antenna), 1 right arm holding a bolt pistol, 1 left arm with power fist (and Imperial Fists icon on the fist) and 7 decorative pieces: 1 sensor, 1 tilting plate, 5 Imperial Fists honorifics.

Space Marine Primaris Interdiction Force

Primaris Interdiction Forces carve bloody swathes through heretic and xenos armies alike, smashing aside the opposition with overwhelming force and changing the momentum of battle in an instant. Bolt rifles roar and blades flash as the Space Marines advance, an armoured spearhead thrust into the heart of the foe.

Whether you’re looking to start a new Adeptus Astartes collection, or are looking to bolster an existing force with a solid selection of Primaris units, the Space Marine Primaris Interdiction Force has you covered. Not only does it save you money, it provides you with a flexible variety of units in the form of a powerful Repulsor Tank, a hard-hitting combination of infantry squads and even a commander to lead them. The set includes the following units:

– 1 Primaris Captain, who can be armed with either a master-crafted bolt rifle or master-crafted stalker bolt rifle. The miniature comes with a choice or bare head or helmet, and it can be assembled to be pointing or wielding a power sword.
– 10 Primaris Intercessors, which can be equipped with any of their primary weapon options – a bolt rifle, stalker bolt rifle or auto bolt rifle.
– 10 Primaris Reivers, each of which can be armed with a heavy bolt pistol and long combat knife or a bolt carbine. All of them can be also be equipped with grav-chutes and/or grapnel launcher for even greater tactical flexibility.

– 1 Repulsor Tank, the kit for which includes all of its available weapon options.

Death Guard Infection Cluster

The warriors of a Death Guard Infection Cluster are insensible to pain, shrugging off grievous injuries as though they were mere flesh wounds, and they wade implacably through incoming fire, leveling hails of bolts and lobbing devastating bombardments at their enemies for the glory of their feculent god, Nurgle.

Kick-start or bolster your Death Guard collection with an Infection Cluster. This set offers a solid core of units and vehicles that serve equally well as reinforcements to an existing army or the start of a new collection, and saves you a lot of money to buying them individually! Here’s what’s in the set:

– 1 Plague Surgeon, armed with a balesword and a (horribly) tainted narthecium.
– 7 Plague Marines, equipped with a plague knife and boltgun. All of the many weapon options available to the Plague Marines are included in the kit.

Adeptus Mechanicus Fist of the Omnissiah

When a Fist of the Omnissiah takes to the battlefield, ranks of metal-bodied Skitarii march towards the enemy with rifles spitting lethal radiation, their arcs of withering fire precisely directed by the noospheric commands of their Tech-Priest masters. Lumbering robots and many-legged war machines advance in their wake, raining death upon the foe. When the enemy lies ruined and smoking upon the battlefield, the Tech-Priests analyse and interpret reams of combat data, refining the battle-algorithms of their troops in order to further improve their murderous efficiency.

If you’re looking to get your hands of a wide and flexible variety of Adeptus Mechanicus units, look no further than the Fist of the Omnissiah set. Here’s what you’ll find in the box:

A Dominion Spearhead includes everything that you’ll need to start your reconquest of the galaxy and to re-establish the dominion of the Necrons.
