Games Workshop has taken a few weeks off for new releases but are back with a week packed with releases that will make the wallet hurt. Check out below for everything you can get starting today.
Expand your Drukhari and Adepta Sororitas with the Piety and Pain box. The campaign box features both armies along with a 32-page campaign book featuring datasheets, missions, Crusade rules, and Theatre of War rules for urban areas.
The Adepta Sororitas army includes five heavy-weapon toting Retributors with a pair of Armorium Cherubs, a heavily armoured Immolator, and a Palatine – a new hero with head and weapons options.
The Drukhari force is a swift Wych Cult warband led by the legendary duellist Lelith Hesperax. The stunning new plastic model of this beloved character is joined by ten Wyches, five winged Scourges, and a Venom.
You’ll be able to take advantage of the new codex for the Drukhari which allows you to use your Kabals, Wych Cults, and Haemoculus Covens. It’s everything you need to play. It comes in a regular and collector’s edition.
Expand your forces with the Combat Patrol: Drukhari. The box set features 18 plastic models that’s themed around the Kabals. It features an Archon leading 10 Kabalite Warriors and five Incubi into battle with a Raider and Ravager.
Along with the new codex you can get the Drukhari datacards and dice.
Also out for Warhammer 40,000 is The Book of Rust, the first act in the War Zone Charadon series.
This campaign book tells the story of the Death Guard invasion of the Charadon sector, home to the vital forge world Metalica. Led by Typhus himself, the followers of Nurgle swarm across the sector, with the Imperium’s defenders standing against them and the piratical Drukhari taking advantage of the anarchy to plunder and pillage.
It features three codex supplements, three armies of Renown, and help to bring together games in a narrative. There’s a regular and collector’s edition.
Crusade Mission Pack: Plague Purge adds rules for Crusade games. Designed to work with the rules in The Book of Rust, this expansion includes 24 Crusade missions – six for each game size – along with rules for playing Plague Purge Crusades and a suite of Agendas, Requisitions, and Stratagems. It also includes the basic rules for Warhammer 40,000, making it a handy reference guide while you play.
The Seraphon debuts in Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm with the Starblood Stalkers. The warband mixes strong and agile fighters.
Expand your games of Blood Bowl with a new field, team card pack, and dice and with a Halfling theme.
Merry and Pippin and Treebeard enter the battle for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game. It’s the largest kit for the game in years.
Middle-earth fans can also grab a dice set themed around the Ents of Fangorn Forest.
Black Library also has a lot of releases for those who want to spend some time reading. Dan Abnett‘s Ravenor Returned gets a limited edition release. Silent Hunters is a new tale of the vicious Carcharodons Space Marines written by Edoardo Albert. Blood of the Emperor is an anthology of six stories from some of your favorite authors. Finally, Josh Reynolds’ Manflayer comes to paperback.
During today’s online preview, Games Workshop teased a lot of what’s coming in 2021. The Adepta Sororitas got an updated range of figures last year but more are coming in 2021. The Palatine model has been revealed already and now we get a look at the Paragon Warsuit!
Check out the video for more variations on the model and check out the image below that.
The first wave of McFarlane Toys‘ Warhammer 40,000 action figures hasn’t arrived yet but we got a look at the next two releases in the line of figures.
While we hoped we’d see one, we didn’t think it’d happen. But, our prayers have been answered as a Sister of Battle enters the toy battlefield. With the focus on the faction with the launch of the 9th edition of Warhammer 40,000, it isn’t a total surprise but it is still awesome to see.
The figure is painted in the colors of the Order of Our Martyred Lady and features a lot of detail throughout.
And, not surprising, the Sister of Battle is joined by an “Artist’s Proof” edition Necron Warrior. The unpainted figure will allow collecters to paint their own!
Both will launch next year with the Sister of Battle being available in multiple shops and the Artist’s Proof Necron Warrior being exclusive to Walmart.
The first wave of figures should be released soon.
With the launch of the 9th Edition of Warhammer 40,000, Games Workshop held a “preview party” of what’s to come in the coming months.
As shouldn’t be surprising, the new edition will also be getting new Codexes.
The first two to be released are Codex: Necrons and Codex: Space Marines which will be released in October.
The new Codex: Space Marines will replace the current 8th edition Codex as well as other “First Founding and Deathwatch codexes.”
In addition, players using Chapters covered in the last Space Marine codex can carry on using their expansions with the new book – White Scars, Imperial Fists, Iron Hands, Ultramarines, Salamanders, Raven Guard and Black Templars using their codex expansion in the Psychic Awakening series.
It’s also mentioned that Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Blood Angels, and Deathwatch will all be getting new codex supplements down the road to help tailor their army to really fit the chapter.
Codex: Necrons sees a complete reworking of the army to help diversify its gameplay. Players will be able to have a close-combat Necron force, a tide of Canoptek critters, a short-range force, it’s all there. There’s also new units and characters. What really stands out are new rules for custom dynasties and the legendary brass-armoured Szarekhan Dynasty. It sounds like Necrons will be getting a bit more choice along the lines of the other armies.
Space Marine Gladiator
The Space Marine Gladiator is a brand-new tank for Primaris Space Marines bringing the iconic Predator to their force.
The Gladiator is based on the Impulsor, like the Rhino was the basis of the Predator. And like the Predator there are multiple versions of the tank.
The Gladiator Valiant uses twin las-talons and multi-meltas to take on armor and heavy infantry.
The Gladiator Reaper is an infantry-killer. It features tempest bolters and twin heavy onslaught gatling cannons.
The Gladiator Lancer is an anti-tank sniper to take on war machines and monsters.
The reveal wasn’t all Space Marines, the Necrons saw some love too with a new Monolith.
The new Monolith is bigger than the original with more detail and more dangerous on the tabletop.
During the presentation, Games Workshop also revealed the video below teasing numerous new miniatures. It looks like new Tyranids, Chaos Terminators, Drukhari, an Ork Boy (new kit? Yes please!) and a new Sister of Battle which you can see below.
The Sister of Battle Palatine is a new battlefield commander who works under a Canoness to coordinate forces.
Games Workshop‘s latest releases are up for pre-order now. It’s a heavy week for Warhammer 40,000 as Psychic Awakening wraps up with its final book Pariah, along with numerous figures to support the release.

During their third preview, Games Workshop has revealed two brand-new mail to order Warhammer 40K figures that are available for two weeks. They’re also the first time they’ve ever been available.
Lexicanum Varios is a classic Space Marine Terminator Librarian and can be used in any Chapter including Deathwatch and Grey Knights. He features a wrist-mounted storm bolter. The figure was to be an event-exclusive model and the first release was to be AdeptiCon but with events not happened, GW decided to make him available to everyone!
Sister Tariana Palos is a surprise figure and brand new model never before seen. The figure is based on the classic piece of Anna Steinbauer artwork that graced the cover of a previous edition of Codex: Adepta Sororitas. She’s perfect as a Superior or a Celestian for your army.
