Archaon, Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse, has returned to wreak havoc and destruction upon the Mortal Realms, to shatter Sigmar's legions of Stormcast Eternals and, once and for all, defeat the God-King himself. Mounted on his daemonic steed Dorghar, he is a terrifying sight, a herald of death and carnage, of endless war and eternal damnation.
The release of Archaon is a momentous event, and what better way to celebrate than with the largest plastic kit we've ever made for Warhammer. 12" in height, from Dorghar's tail to the tip of his claws, and with a wingspan almost as wide, Archaon will dominate any battlefield he fights on, a colossal champion of Chaos and an incredible painting challenge to boot. As destroyer of the world-that-was and conqueror of the Mortal Realms, Archaon has been rewarded countless times by the Chaos Gods, becoming massive in stature and unstoppable in power, a giant amongst men. In one hand he carries a huge shield – part of the Armour of Morkar – blessed by the Chaos Gods. In the other burns the Slayer of Kings, a Daemon sword into which is bound the soul of an enslaved Bloodthirster. Yet his most impressive gift is surely his steed Dorghar, a triple-headed Daemon of immense power and strength that carries the Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse into battle. You can find out more about the new Archaon model, plus his epic story, in the pages of White Dwarf 96, out now.
Also available to pre-order are two new expansion sets for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, one each for the Stormcast Eternals and the Khorne Bloodbound. Both sets are a great way to expand upon the forces in the boxed game, giving you even mightier armies to conquer or liberate the Mortal Realms. They're brilliant value for money, too, an excellent Christmas gift for the hobbyist in your life.
But what if you're more into guns and robots than swords and sorcery? Never fear, because the Tau Retaliation Cadre is also available to pre-order. This battlesuit-heavy box is a great way to add to an existing Tau collection, or perhaps mark the start of a whole new one.
But that's not all, because Black Library have a new book out and it's a biggie! The Beast Arises: I am Slaughter is the first book in a brand new series set in the 32nd Millennium. The Heresy War is a distant memory and the Imperium knows relative peace. But not for long. The greatest Ork Waaagh! the Imperium has ever faced is about to hit the Terran Core and it's up to the Imperial Fists to stop it any way they can.
Don't forget, Warhammer Visions 23 is also available to pre-order today. It comes with a free Word Bearers pin badge on the front cover, too, the evil counterpart to the Ultramarines one that was on the front cover of White Dwarf 93. Make sure you order your issue now, because they're bound to be popular.
