The enigmatic and secretive Dark Angels Space Marines seek absolution in battle to heal the scars of the Chapter's ancient past.They are counted amongst Mankind's greatest champions and a terror to those that have turned from the Emperor's light.
The Chaos Space Marines once fought for the Emperor, helping to conquer the galaxy and unite the disparate worlds of Mankind, but they fell to the worship of terrible deities, the dread Gods of Chaos. Now the Chaos Space Marines burn, slay and destroy in the name of the Dark Gods.
There is a reckoning to be had between the Dark Angels and the Chaos Space Marines.
This is Dark Vengeance.
Dark Vengeance is the new Warhammer 40,000 boxed game, complete with an abundance of lavish miniatures (49 to be precise), a compact 168-page full-colour rules manual for use in your games, a 48-page getting started guide, a character reference sheet, templates, dice and measuring sticks.No matter what models and armies you collect, this set is a great excuse to build and paint some truly exceptional miniatures for your collection and for newcomers to the hobby it's the perfect way to get started in Warhammer 40,000. You can see more of the miniatures in the video above and in the product links below.
Over the course of the next week I'll be taking a look at each of the new characters and squads, showing off pictures and 360 degree shots of them. Until then, I thought it would be worth a closer look at the Limited Edition model in the box - Interrogator Chaplain Seraphicus.
Like all of the models in the Dark Vengeance boxed game, the Interrogator Chaplain is a plastic miniature - our sculptors and mould makers truly excelled themselves with this boxed game. Seraphicus has an imposing stance, striding forwards to take the fight to the enemy, his ornate Crozius Arcanum outstretched as if initiating a challenge. From his backpack rise two smoking incense burners and a vast, billowing cloak hangs from his broad shoulders, the back of which features a sculpted Dark Angels icon. A fully-sculpted base completes this dramatic figure. Remember (and I can't stress this enough), he is only available in the Limited Edition boxed set, so don't miss out.
Don't forget White Dwarf!
While this weekend marks the advance order date for Dark Vengeance, don't forget about our monthly magazine - White Dwarf, which is released this Saturday and features a huge amount of information about the new boxed game, plus plenty of stunning pictures of the new miniatures.
There is a whole series of battle reports featuring the new miniatures, a Space Marine Modelling Workshop, two gorgeous Warhammer armies painted by Chris Peach and Duncan Rhodes from the Studio Hobby Team, a snowy Armies on Parade board featuring Space Wolves, information about new releases, a Golden Demon gallery and Jervis' Standard Bearer column. Phew...
If you don't already have a White Dwarf subscription, then what are you waiting for, why not set one up today? To help you out I've included links to both September's issue and the White Dwarf subscription offer below. Remember that White Dwarf is also available in all of our Hobby Centres, so you can pay them a visit and pick up your copy in person if you prefer (and chat to the staff about the stunning new miniatures while you're there).
