Next Week – Astra Militarum Pre Orders and Necromunda Reinforcements
Next week we have an assortment of awesome stuff up for pre order, from the Astra Militarum range to goodies for Necomunda! As ever, if you would like to support the site then why not order yours through our affiliate Element Games and save yourself money too?
Here’s all the details from WarCom!
Codex: Astra Militarum
Dark clouds gather over a divided Imperium, and the billions-strong Astra Militarum is the last line of defence against total chaos. This codex includes all the lore and rules you need to wield the Hammer of the Emperor, bringing massive firepower to bear with ranks of human soldiers and armoured vehicles.
Both regular and glamorous Collector’s editions will be available to pre-order this Saturday.
Lord Solar Leontus
Lord Solar Leontus is the supreme commander of the Astra Militarum in the Segmentum Solar, a brilliant strategist and quite handy in a fight. Astride his biomechanical steed Konstantin, he directs his armies from the front line, and can be found getting stuck into the thick of combat just as often as he organises entire crusades from the war room.
Lord Castellan Ursula Creed
Ursula J Creed is every bit her father’s daughter – an indomitable will holding the soldiers of Cadia together through thick and thin. She’s a force multiplier on the battlefield, issuing multiple orders every turn and squeezing every drop of potential from the Guardsmen under her command.
Cadian Shock Troops
The Cadian Shock Troops are the model on which many other regiments are based, and for good reason. These dependable soldiers pack multiple special weapons and are especially good at stoically holding the line on objectives with their lasguns blazing.
Cadian Command Squad
Guardsmen can flag a little when left to their own devices, and it’s the job of the Cadian Command Squad to direct their efforts with orders. The Platoon Commander empowers nearby infantry, while the medic, standard bearer, and vox-caster add their own unique boons to the mix.
Heavy Weapons Squad
Firepower is the name of the game in the Emperor’s armies, and this unit of three Heavy Weapons Teams is a great way to add an extra punch to your army. Each team can be assembled with a mortar, missile launcher, heavy bolter, autocannon, or lascannon, so you can tailor your troops to whatever you need blown to smithereens.
Rogal Dorn Battle Tank
Baneblade too big for your garage? Leman Russ not got quite enough oomph? Enter the Rogal Dorn Battle Tank, a steel behemoth packing enough firepower to wipe out entire companies of cultists – take your pick of two big guns or one really big gun, on top of many other smaller and medium-sized guns.
Field Ordnance Battery
Field Ordnance Batteries are an invaluable support asset. Each pack of two has three different weapon options each – the malleus rocket launcher, heavy lascannon, or bombast field gun.
Sentinels sweep through rough terrain at high speed, conducting reconnaissance and harassing enemy flanks with surprisingly heavy weapons for their size. Keep your pilots safe in an Armoured Sentinel, or get an extra burst of speed with the Scout Sentinel. They can both mount a giant chainsaw arm – do you need anything else?
Eight different super-heavy tanks owe their lineage to the venerable Baneblade chassis, and every single one can be built with the contents of this box. Not only that, but the kit now contains an extra sponson sprue, allowing you to make the full range of weapon options from one box. Pick your favourite from the Baneblade, Banehammer, Banesword, Doomhammer, Hellhammer, Shadowsword, Stormlord, or Stormsword tanks, and crush your enemies beneath mighty adamantium treads.
Leman Russ Battle Tank
Equally as versatile, the Leman Russ is a mainstay of Imperial Guard regiments and can be outfitted to tackle almost any enemy you might encounter. There are turret options for the Leman Russ Battle Tank, Demolisher, Executioner, Vanquisher, Eradicator, Punisher, and Exterminator variants included in one set for the first time, plus sponson weapon choices and a huge transfer sheet packed with regimental icons.
Primaris Psykers are a cut above the regular sanctioned chaff fed to the front lines by the Imperial war machine – wielding the warp to strip flesh and sear bones. This sought-after miniature was previously only available as part of Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, and has now been released on its own for the first time.
Datacards: Astra Militarum
Keep track of your Stratagems, psychic powers, and your expanded list of Regimental Orders – Commissars get their own now! – with this pack of 63 reference cards.
Astra Militarum Dice Set
Roll your masses of lasgun attacks in style with this set of 15 acrylic dice, cast in metallic green plastic with shining gold pips and the winged skull of the Astra Militarum on the six face.
Astra Militarum Art Print Bundle
Pick up all of these releases in one go and you’ll score a beautiful art print of the awesome codex cover art, while stocks last. Each print is signed by artist Lewis Jones, and don’t worry if you already began your new army with the Cadia Stands Army Set from last year – a second bundle with just the new miniatures will also be available.
Mercator Pallidus Corpse Harvesting Party
Unless you’re one of the hoity-toity noble folk in the upper hive, your average Necromunda lunch probably consists of recycled meat. Corpse Harvesting Parties are representatives of the Mercator Pallidus, the Corpse Guild, and as hangers-on they’re entirely happy to join your gangs for a quick supply run.
This band of six resin miniatures can ally with any faction with ties to the Corpse Guild, or strike out on their own into the wastes to form an Outcasts Delegation Gang.
Rex Spires and Estus Jet
Hired Guns go where the money is, lending skills to any gangs who can afford them. Rex Spires took to the bounty hunting trade solely as a means to acquire more explosives – recklessly chasing the exhilaration of a good demolition – while Estus Jet sticks to the lawless zones, running rackets and killing anyone stupid enough to challenge her authority.
This pack contains two resin miniatures for use in Necromunda.
Ajex Gorgoth, Lord of the Fist
One of the most prolific Goliaths active on Necromunda, Ajex Gorgoth built his way up from nothing to rule the largest enclave of his kind in Hive Primus. This resin House Agent can be hired by Goliath gangs, and his massive strength and bulk overpower anything short of an ambull.
