Games Workshop Reveals Three New Land Speeders

It was only a matter of time before the classic Land Speeder got a Primaris upgrade. Games Workshop has revealed three new versions of the vehicle for Warhammer 40,000. In a retrospective looking at the Land Speeder over the years (which weirdly skipped actual classic models) the game company showed off new “advanced modifications” to the vehicle that’ll be out soon.

The three variants for the Storm Speeder include the Hammerstrike, Thunderstrike, and Hailstrike. They’ll be out in early 2021 to quickly deliver death on the battlefield.

Games Workshop Teases Piety and Pain Featuring Sisters of Battle and Drukhari

Teasing what we can expect in 2021, Games Workshop has revealed a new box set for Warhammer 40,000, Piety and Pain. The battlebox features Sisters of Battle and the Drukhari.

In the box is the already revealed Palatine for the Sisters of Battle as well as an Immolator, and Retributor Squad. For the sisters, it looks like the Palatine is the only new model.

The Drukhari features a brand-new Lelith Hesperax, Venom, Scourges, and Wyches.

The battlebox would hint both will see their codex released on the earlier side of 2021.

Games Workshop Delivers an Update on 2021 Releases

Games Workshop

With the future still up in the air, Games Workshop is changing things up for the foreseeable future as far as releases.

Both COVID-19 and Brexit are both looming issues for the game manufacturer imapcting their retail stores, factories, and shipping. There will be delays for December and January, extending the shipping delays so many are familiar with.

First up, Brexit.

Games Workshop has announced that EY fans won’t have to pay more for products due to the England exiting the EU. While details are still being worked out, Games Workshop has pledged to pay any customs and duties fees that apply to orders.

And then there’s COVID…

With delays and shutdowns impacting the company, they have announced they’re now delaying releases and stretching them out for January and February.

Rather than weekly, releases will come every other week with the first pre-orders of 2021 being January 16th.

There will be a new codex or expansion in January, February, and March with Death Guard for Warhammer 40K as the first to be released. A new battletome, with new minis, will be released in February for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. A teaser will be released on Christmas day.
