Check out these sweet new releases! From hobby to miniatures, there is something for everyone coming next week from Games Workshop!
The characters and armies of the mortal realms are as varied as they are numerous; myriad bizarre forms, powerful soldiers from the heavens, terrifying, brutish orruks – the miniatures that represent them are spectacular. Truly, they are deserving of amazing bases on which to stand, but not everyone has the time or the skill to bash their own bases together. Enter the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Hero Bases!
Featuring 10 unique designs, these bases are a quick and easy way to base your characters. They can be used with any of the armies featured in Warhammer Age of Sigmar – simply paint them up and glue your miniature down.
The miniatures of Warhammer 40,000 are a varied and interesting bunch – many different races and species, all coming together in a glorious game of unending war. These miniatures deserve to be placed on spectacular bases, but not everyone has the time or the ability to bash together their own.
Enter the Warhammer 40,000 Hero Bases!
Featuring 8 unique designs, these bases are a quick and easy way to base your characters. Featuring dilapidated ruins that really bring out the grim nature of Warhammer 40,000, they can be used with any of the armies featured in Warhammer 40,000 – simply paint them up and glue your miniature down.
Ever had a disaster befall one of your miniatures when far from home? Perhaps your clumsy opponent knocked your Wraithknight over, or an enthusiastic dice roll snapped off your Dunecrawler’s antennae – the Miniature Repair Kit is the perfect tool for maintaining and, well, repairing your miniatures at short notice!
Presented in a handy form factor which can be clipped to your key ring, this is a two-part tool – one side is designed to hold a tube of Citadel Super Glue (not included), and the other is a sturdy metal scraper, designed for removing dried glue so that fresh glue can be placed. It’s a life (well, miniature) saver
Balewind Vortex $15
A swirling, violently swaying vortex of fell energies that can be summoned by the most powerful wizards in the mortal realms and used as a platform from which to cast their spells, a Balewind Vortex is a terrifying sight to behold on the battlefield. When summoned, its howling gusts push any aggressors away from the wizard who called upon it, leaving him unmolested to blast away with the amplified magical abilities he gleans from the Vortex.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Balewind Vortex, a scenery piece for your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Rules can be found here.
Magewrath Throne $15
Constructed in an ancient time by powerful and insane wizards, these mighty thrones are highly sought after. A warlord who takes the throne can use the magic imbued within it to wreak wrath and ruin upon his enemies, amplifying the bravado and strength of his troops while demoralising and weakening the resolve of the foe.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Magewrath Throne, a scenery piece for your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Rules can be found here.
Designed and deployed to provide additional power on the battlefield, the Haemotrope Reactor is an indispensable tool for armies wishing to unleash ever-more destructive waves of plasma upon their enemies. An imposing structure, understood fully by few, it is used to bolster the defensive capabilities of the Void Shield Generator – or amplify the already intimidating destructive capacity of the Plasma Obliterator. In a pinch, the Haemotrope Reactor can be used as cover; this can be a terrible decision however, as the cowering warrior opens himself up to the potential of horrific injuries resulting from power leaks…
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 2 Haemotrope Reactors. Compatible with the Promethium Relay pipes, they make the perfect centrepiece of a larger network of Warhammer 40,000 scenery, and the included rules mean your already-existing plasma scenery will be hugely bolstered!
Wound Trackers $12.50
Ideal for tracking wounds to your units during games, the Citadel Wound Trackers are 8 10-sided plastic dice. You’ll receive either red, blue, green, black or ivory trackers at random with your order.
Maelstrom Dice $10
A set of 20 12mm dice featuring an attractive swirl effect, packaged in a stackable plastic cube for the collectors, available in Black, Grey, Ivory, Red, Green and Blue.
Castellan Crowe, Brotherhood Champion of the Purifier order of the Grey Knights, bears a heavy burden – to be the warden of the dread Blade of Antwyr. Its malevolent voice is forever in his head, trying to crack his resolve, urging him to unleash a power he must never use. The toll is terrible, and how long before the incorruptible Crowe is at last defeated? His harrowing task first began at Sandava II… Under the command of Castellan Gavallan, Crowe and his brother Purifiers bring purging flame to a daemonic incursion that threatens to consume the world. What awaits them is more insidious and more powerful than they imagine, and they must reckon too with the machinations of the Blade, as it seeks to destroy its guardian and drown the galaxy in blood.
READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a fascinating look at a compelling character, showcasing the duality of the purest of souls as he contends with the corrupting power of an artefact that could damn him and all he holds dear to utter ruination.
