Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Knights hit the Horus Heresy battlefield, the return of 40K Terrain, and Vampires for Blood Bowl!
There’s a lot on tap next week for pre-orders from Games Workshop. Horus Heresy, terrain for Warhammer 40K, Blood Bowl, and more are coming!
For Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, two new Knights will stride the battlefield in plastic. Bonus, you can use them in Warhammer 40,000 too!
The Cerastus Knight Acheron is a variant of the Knight Cerastus. Armed with a flamestorm cannon and reaper chainfist, it can clear infantry in great gouts of superheated promethium or wide sweeps of its chainblade.
The Cerastus Knight Castigator fights mid-range with its boltcannon and features a warblade when it needs to get in close for melee.
If you need to pack your battlefield, there’s a lot of terrain returning for Made to Order. They’ll be available from September 23rd to October 2nd.
There are six returning terrain kits: the classic Aegis Defence Line, the Imperial Bastion, the Skyshield Landing Pad, the Imperial Bunker, the Imperial Defence Emplacement, and the Imperial Defence Line. They are joined by the Warhammer 40,000 Hero Bases and the Sector Imperialis Large Base Detail Kit.
Blood Bowl does not suck… but now it does with The Drakfang Thirsters! Vampires are back with a new plastic kit featuring 14 players including two Vampire Blitzers, two Vampire Runners, two Vampire Throwers, and eight Thralls. You also get all the usual balls, coins, and tokens – and a transfer sheet.
But, what’s a team without star players?
Vargheist is a Brute, rampaging across the pitch. Strong, fast, frenzied, and wanting to drink blood. It comes from Forge World in resin.
Count Luthor von Drakenborg gets an updated miniature and it’s pretty impressive. He grants an extra reroll and doesn’t need to drink blood, get him from Forge World in resin. He can play for all Sylvanian Spotlight teams.
‘Captain’ Karina von Riesz is new on the pitch and features strength and dexterity. Also from Forge World in resin, she’s perfect for the Sylvanian Spotlight team.
Ivan ‘the Animal’ Deathshroud is reanimated once more for Sylvanian Spotlight teams. Tough and ready to smash your opponent, you can get him from Forge World in resin.
You’ll need rules and Spike! Journal Issue 16 has you covered with that and more. It features rules, tactics, lore, and more.
And finally, you can get Vampire Team Pitch, Cards, and Dice as well to round out your vampire collection.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring – Battle in Balin’s Tomb is for two players and pits them in a battle to hold the One Ring. It features the Fellowship featuring nin models taking on 12 Goblins of Moria as well as a Cave Troll. It features all the dice and tokens you need to play.
From Black Library is Ciaphas Cain: For the Emperor by Sandy Mitchell. This limited edition version features 2,000 copies signed by the author, fancy binding and ribbons, and an additional short story, Rotten to the Core.
The Chapter’s Due gets an MP3 release. After defeating T’au forces, Captain Uriel Ventris of the Ultramarines returns to the Chapter’s homeworld of Macragge to defend the Ultramar system from an Iron Warriors Warband led by Warsmith Honsou. Get this classic tale from Graham McNeill.
