It’s a hodge podge upcoming pre-order week for Games Workshop with releases for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game, and Black Library. Check out everything you’ll be able to soon get.
The Flesh-eater Courts Army Set is the first place to get some of the new models coming for the Flesh-eater Court. It’s packed with what you need to muster a glittering new host of noble knights and redoubtable peasants.
The set contains 25 completely new plastic miniatures: one mighty Abhorrant Gorewarden as general, his trusty Varghulf Courtier, 3 lightning-fast Morbheg Knights, and 20 obdurate Cryptguard.
There’s also an exclusive launch edition of the new 88-page Battletome: Flesh-eater Courts, 27 warscroll cards, 30 tokens, and 33 enhancement cards, all of which are only available in this set (though the battletome will be released separately in a different format).
For those who want something more futuristic and with speed comes the MKVI Assault Squad for Warhammer: The Horus Heresy. This is a box of 10 plastic Assault Marines for deployment in your Horus Heresy games. You get enough components to arm your squad with chainswords and either bolt pistols or combat shields, plus a range of accessories, and a Sergeant with extra weapons options and two heads. The kit is entirely compatible with all MKVI upgrade sets, including Legion-specific accessories.
Games Workshop is making it a bit easier to get the iconography right on your miniatures with the Legiones Astartes Transfer Sheet. It features general squad markings, honour signs, numerals and lettering suited for all 18 Legions. The Infantry sheet contains 1,280 decals in total, while the Vehicle sheet includes 510. Note that there’s no Legion-specific heraldry included on either set of transfers.
Head to Middle-earth and the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game with two releases.
King of the Dead and Heralds get a Clear Plastic version. It’s a translucent blue plastic featuring the King of the Dead and two Heralds brandishing Banners of the Dead. This is a recast of the current models, taking on a more ghostly form as they bring ruin to the forces of Mordor.
The king gets his army with the Warriors of the Dead also in Clear Plastic. This set contains 20 Warriors of the Dead cast in the same clear blue plastic. These are also existing miniatures which have been recast for a ghostly effect.
Both of these clear plastic kits will be available while stocks last.
White Dwarf 495 features information on all the new Tyranids and the Fourth Tyrannic War. You’ll also find new special mission rules for Boarding Actions in the current edition of Warhammer 40,000, Warcry rules for taking your Free City fighters on a Dawnbringer Crusade, Kill Team rules for jungle warfare – complete with jungle cards – and much, much more.
The surprise second holiday release is here with Da Grotmas Gitz. This model will be available for a strictly limited period in December, so snap yours up quick!
Spruce up your bases with Brimstein Firegrass, vermillion grass tufts, which are perfect for scorched battlefield. In all, you get 155 tufts in four different sizes.
Black Library has multiple releases to keep you entertained during the holiday season.
Vaults of Terra Collection gets a special edition. Chris Wraight’s thrilling trilogy about corruption at the very heart of Humanity’s home world is limited to just 1,500 copies signed by the author. All three volumes are collected in a fancy slipcase with leather-effect covers, ribbon bookmarks, and an extra short story in each.
Two more classic titles come to MP3 audiobook for the first time. In Steven B Fischer’s Witchbringer, former Cadian Captain Glavia Aerand’s newfound psychic talents press her into more hazardous service, while Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First and Only are back in action in Blood Pact by Dan Abnett. Additionally, the Damocles collection of short stories has been re-recorded.
Black Library Advent eShorts 2023 return this December with one short story every two days in the run-up to Christmas. There are 12 stories in total, from luminaries such as Adrian Tchaikovsky, Nate Crowley, and Mike Brooks, telling tales from all the worlds of Warhammer. You can buy these eShorts separately, or purchase a subscription to get all 12 for the price of 10.
