Today sees a host of Cult Mechanicus models, books and Datacards go on sale around the world in Games Workshop stores and independent stockists. But that’s not all, because the new Space Marine Assault Squad is also available to pre-order alongside a load of other exciting products.
The Space Marine Assault Squad is a must-have kit for any fan of Space Marines (which is pretty much all of us, right?). Inside you’ll find not only five new Assault Marines, but a virtual armoury of extra wargear for upgrading other models in your collection. We’ll be taking a closer look at them in more detail next week, but you can find out more by clicking on the links below.
Also out this week are four Chapter upgrade packs, one each for Space Wolves, Blood Angels, Ultramarines and Dark Angels. They each include ten shoulder pads plus a host of other upgrades that’ll help you personalise the miniatures in your collection. Take a look in White Dwarf 70, out now, to see how we used them to convert a whole load of plastic kits.
But that’s not all, because there are also three new transfer sheets out this week, one each for Blood Angels, Ultramarines and Dark Angels plus a new spray paint: Corax White, which replaces the venerable Skull White. Sad? Don’t be. This new spray is a revelation in undercoating technology and more than a match for its predecessor. Again, you can find out more in the pages of White Dwarf.
Eager to get in on the power-armoured action, Black Library have released the novella Spear of Macragge. Set on the world of Damnos, the story pits tank commander Antaro Chronus of the Ultramarines against the Necrons.
