Meet the Space Marine Hammerfall and Convergence of Dominion

There’s a lot of new toys and changes coming to Warhammer 40,000 and one looks like it’ll be taking a note from Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and having a bit of a focus on functional scenery.

Two new kits have been revealed for the game, one for Space Marines and one for Necrons.

The Hammerfall Bunker is a fortified emplacement whose entire role is to build a nice beachhead from which they can attack. The new fortification can feature heavy bolters or heavy flamers on the sides and a Hammerfall missile launcher up top featuring Superfrag and Superkrak missiles.

The Necron’s fortification is the Convergence of Dominion. Each one consists of three ancient Starstele which are armed with transdimensional abductors. They bolster units nearby and can perform Translocation Protocols to redeploy across the battlefield.

With the pre-order beginning for Warhammer 40K 9th edition in a little over a week and the release later in July, Games Workshop has released the core rules set for the game.

Marvel and Games Workshop Announce Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar

A legendary Space Marine Chapter Master of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Marneus Calgar leads his elite Ultramarines against  humanity’s greatest threats and has had his dark past shrouded in mystery…until now. This October, writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jacen Burrows will unite to tell Marneus Calgar’s never-before-told origin story – from his beginnings on the world of Nova Thulium, his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and to the unfolding mystery of the Black Altar as a deadly threat from his past reemerges to threaten the present of the Ultramar system.

Gillen, a veteran player of the Warhammer tabletop miniature wargame, can barely contain his enthusiasm for the series.

I am venerable enough to have bought Rogue Trader in 1987. Since then, I like to think every hastily dry-brushed Necron, every badly edge-highlighted Marine, every ignored Harlequin (as painting Motley petrified me) has prepared me for writing the first Warhammer comics for Marvel. If I said, ‘Getting to explore the roots of Marneus Calgar and setting the stage for Marvel’s Warhammer comics is a dream come true,’ I would be betraying everything this grim future should be since ‘dream’ implies the possibility of hope.  But getting to do this is the sort of thing Slaanesh would wave in my direction if she wanted me coming over to the tentacle-y side.

Or to translate for those less indoctrinated in 40K. I’m excited.

This never-before-told tale will be essential reading for 40K aficionados, as well as the perfect primer to the Warhammer 40,000 universe for those new to it. It will also be but the first foray into the larger darkness that is coming from Games Workshop and Marvel
