Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Chaos descends for Warhammer 40K!

After a few weeks of not a whole lot since the release of the Chaos codex for Warhammer 40K, it looks like the army is finally getting its expected releases. Next week’s pre-orders feature some new figures as well as repackaged figures.

One of the big changes in the Chaos codex was a focus on Chaos Cultists. You’ll be able to build a horde of them with this new release and they can be the needed cannon fodder for the Dark gods.

Chaos Cultists

The Dark Commune is an example of the focus on cannon fodder. A new unit, they’re the most dedicated servants. They lead their devotees into battle bringing all sorts of benefits.

Dark Commune

Bring the skills of the Chosen Chaos Space Marines to the fight. They bring their experience and this customizable unit features alternate heads, accessories, and weapons for you to kit them out with.

Chosen Chaos Space Marines

The Warpsmith debuted a while ago but gets a release to patch up your war machines and taming daemon engines.

Warpsmith

Warpforged features a Venomcrawler and two Obliterators that will help add heavy firepower to your army. This is the surprise that the three are packaged together as opposed to on their own.

Warpforged

Coming for Warhammer: The Horus Heresy is the Leviathan Siege Dreadnought with Drill & Claw Weapons. The behemoth comes with chest-mounted guns and two melee fists which can be built as a siege drill or siege claw.

You can also get the Leviathan Siege Dreadnought Close Combat Weapons Frame if you plan on picking up the Leviathan with ranged weapons. This features two melee fists which can be built as siege drills or siege claws.

From Black Library comes Space Marine Conquests: The Devastation of Baal (Special Edition) by Guy Haley. It returns in a new special edition bound in a luxury black faux-leather cover, inlaid with crimson foil and intricate Blood Angels iconography. The story features 30,000 Space Marines assembled to defend Ball from the Tyranid Hive Fleet Leviathan!

There are more figures coming from McFarlane Toys!

Chaos Space Marines get some focus with the new Black Legion Space Marine or you can make your own with a Chaos Space Marine Artist’s Proof.

If you like to paint up your own, you can also get the Dark Angels Intercessor (Artist’s Proof).

Burn the Galaxy with the new Combat Patrol: Chaos Space Marines

Chaos is coming with a whole new codex and a lot of new miniatures to help burn the galaxy! To help you crush the loyalist scum, a brand new Combat Patrol: Chaos Space Marines is one the way.

A Dark Apostle and his two Dark Disciples lead the way and delivering blessings to your Core force.

Joining him is a squad of Legionairies which will feature a variety of wargear allowing you to be flexible for your playstyle. Also included are Havocs delivering death from a distance as heavy support. Finally, a Helbrute backs them up with an array of weaponry.

It all comes together for a base force of (currently) 745+ points.

While none of the miniatures look new, there’s about $218 worth of miniatures in the box and the new Combat Patrol boxes have retailed for about $150. It’s a nice base of miniatures to get started with and broad enough to be able to be used in multiple legions. Overall, it’ll be interesting to see how the set fits into the upcoming codex.

McFarlane Toys Reveals New Warhammer 40K Figures

McFarlane Toys has been doing their own mini Toy Fair showing off what’s coming from the toy manufacturer. They’re revealed two new releases that are coming to their line of Warhammer 40,000 figures. Coming soon are a Dark Angels Space Marine and Chaos Space Marine.

While the Chaos Space Marine looks pretty good, the Dark Angels figure might be the first fail of the figure line. While wings are a regular motif for the chapter, this implementation feels a little… off. It does come with a plasma pistol which is new.

With a New Edition of Warhammer 40k Comes New Codexes and Units

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.

Codex Necrons and Codex Space Marines

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.

Necrons

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.

What’s next?

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.

The World of Warhammer 40,000 Comes to Risk

Risk: Warhammer 40,000

Usaopoly (The Op) dives deeper into the world of Games Workshop‘s Warhammer 40,000 with Risk: Warhammer 40,000.

Battle with your favorite factions for control of the planet Vigilus in the Battle of the War of the Beasts. Take control of your faction and attempt to vanquish your foes across the unique planet map that has been customized for Warhammer 40,000 fans. In this Risk game, custom sculpted units will allow you to control the key locations in your bid to rule the planet!

Risk: Warhammer 40,000

Vigilus is a notable world in the Imperium Nihilus, a region of space that became isolated from the greater Imperium due to the formation of the Great Rift at the end of the Thirteenth Black Crusade. The “Dark Imperium,” as it is known is known so as the light of the Astronomican is obscured making travel difficult. The planet was the location of a recent series of campaign books released for the Warhammer 40,000 miniature game.

Vigilus is at the mercy of five warring Factions: Ultramarines, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Aeldari Craftworlds, and Genestealer Cults, each represented by tokens for their Leaders and custom game pieces for their single and triple-threat units.

Risk: Warhammer 40,000

To name a few, Marneus Calgar leads the Ultramarines with individual Primaris Intercessors and Repulsor battle tanks as their three-unit pieces. The Aeldari Craftworlds faction, led by an Autarch, has Guardians at attention with Falcons as their tanks. A Magus’s Genestealer Cult boasts weapon-wielding Acolytes and heavily armored Goliath Rockgrinders. All five factions’ Leaders have various special abilities, while armies are deployed with daring attacks and defense at the roll of custom red and black dice. Players gain Reward Cards for completing objectives, allowing the acquisition of additional armies and providing strategic advantages. Conquer not only three objectives, but total control of all territories to win “Total Domination”!

Retailing for $49.99 the game is for 2-5 players ages 10 and up.
