New Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols Make Your 2022 Army Building Easier

Games Workshop has revealed new Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols for 2022 to help build out your forces or start a new one!

T’au, Grey Knights, Adeptus Custodes, Genestealer Cults, and Thousand Sons are all getting new Combat Patrol releases.

Combat Patrols have retailed for $140 and featured pretty decent savings. If things remain the same, how do these stack up?

  • T’au: ~$218 retail separately, the Ethereal figure currently is only in the Start Collecting box.
  • Grey Knights: ~$175, the box features a five man Strike Squad making the value a little less than others.
  • Adeptus Custodes: ~$218, the box has a nice mix and is one of the more intriguing releases and the box’s value will really be determined by what units you can make out of it as is.
  • Genestealer Cults: ~$258, if this one keeps the regular retail price for the boxes, it might be one of the best values out there and as far as a force, this one looks like a really solid way to start.
  • Thousand Sons: ~$178, the character included isn’t currently offered on its own so this one’s a bit of a guess. The inclusion of so many Tzaangors and no Rubric Marines is a bit odd.

Games Workshop Reveals its 2021 Warhammer 40,000 Road Map

With two new codexes out this week, Games Workshop has revealed and teased what’s coming and when for the rest of the year for Warhammer 40,000.

Warhammer 40K Codex release schedule

This weekend players will be able to get Codex: Grey Knights and Codex: Thousand Sons. In September, Codex: Orks will officially be released. The Codex was already released as a limited edition version in the Beast Snaggas Army Set. We can expect September and October to be filled with the numerous Ork releases teased already.

Codex: Black Templars is a new reveal with a concrete time frame. The army has been teased but the exact release hasn’t. A new Emperor’s Champion has already been revealed but more reinforcements have been promised.

December sees the release of two Codexes, one for xenos and one for Imperial armies. Covers have been shown and would tease a possible Adeptus Custodes update and the other seems to be Genestealer Cults or Tyranids. The latter makes the most sense as they’re the force battling Orks in the next battle sector. What’s your guess as to what the two are?

Warhammer 40K Codex tease

Beyond Codex: Thousand Sons and Codex: Death Guard, Chaos has been generally lacking in updates. Games Workshop has said that 2022 will be packed with the traitor legions. We’ll likely start to see teases later this year.

Games Workshop Next Week Thousand Sons and More Adeptus Custodes

Games Workshop has revealed the next round of new releases that will be available for pre-order this coming Saturday.

The Adeptus Custodes get reinforcements with the Vertus Praetors who fly Dawneagle Jetbikes.

A fast attack unit, they not only can take on infantry but with salvo launchers they can be used as tank and aircraft hunters.

You’ll also be able to build a Shield-Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike, a great HQ choice for a rapid-assault Adeptus Custodes army.

Also available are Custodian Wardens, the very oldest of the Golden Legion. The unit boasts additional wargear compared to their less experienced brethren.

This kit will also allow you to build a Shield-Captain as well as a Vexilus Praetor.

But, a new foe arises.

The Thousand Sons get a Codex of their own that features all new rules. To help build your force for 40K a Tzaangor Upgrade Pack will also be released which you can use to arm you Tzaangors with autopistols and chainswords.
