What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

Skitarii: a new army for Warhammer 40,000

The Skitarii are the military arm of the Adeptus Mechanicus, one of the most important and influential organisations in the Imperium. It is the duty of the Skitarii to prosecute the wars of the Adeptus Mechanicus with unflinching, methodical precision, furthering the Quest for Knowledge and reclaiming the galaxy in the name of the Machine God. To do so they use ancient weapons and technology virtually forgotten by the rest of the Imperium and horrific in its effectiveness.

These are the Skitarii, the soldiers of the Machine God.

Armed with radium carbines and galvanic rifles, the Skitarii rarely, if ever show their faces, their skin and hair ruined by exposure to radiation. Indeed, many of their limbs have been replaced with bionics, for metal is strong and flesh is weak.

And these are the Ironstriders, the war machines of the Skitarii Legions. Long-legged scout walkers, they sprint alongside their brethren, blasting apart their foes with beams of laser energy or electrocuting them with a well-aimed thrust from a taser lance.

We will, of course, be taking a closer look at these new plastic kits next week, but if you just can’t wait you can pre-order them now using the links below. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of White Dwarf, too, which includes dozens of pictures of the new models, plus an explanation of who the Skitarii are, a painting guide and their full rules so you can use them in your games of Warhammer 40,000.
