Armiger Warglaives: $75

Nimble and responsive, Armiger Warglaives lope towards the enemy with purposeful strides. On one arm they wield fearsome reaper chain-cleavers, their adamantium teeth whirring and actuator motors roaring. On the other they bear menacing thermal spears, bulky melta weapons that are essentially stripped down equivalents of a Knight Errant’s thermal cannon. A single shot from such a weapon can vaporise even the most heavily protected combatant, melt through the wall of a bunker or reduce a battle tank to a molten wreck. Their pilots are well-suited to the close quarters aggression of the Warglaive, and stride into battle alongside their masters filled with dogged determination to do their betters proud.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 2 Armiger Warglaives. Smaller and more lightly armoured than their larger Imperial Knight brethren, standing at around half the height, they nevertheless share a lot of details – the basic shape of these bipedal weapon platforms are similar to a standard Imperial Knight, with 2 weapon arms, hydraulically-driven legs, tilting plate and a large carapace surrounding the central head of the suit. Another detail in common with those larger suits is their loadout; for their diminutive size they’re incredibly powerful. Each is armed with a reaper chain-cleaver, thermal spear and a carapace-mounted heavy stubber, the latter of which can be replaced with a meltagun. 4 unique heads are supplied in the kit, and both weapons (which feature articulation at the shoulder) and legs can be attached to either side of the model, allowing for some customisation of pose.
This kit comes as 116 components, and is supplied with 2 Citadel 100mm Round bases, as well as an Armiger Transfer sheet.

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar audio anthology
In the shattered ruins of the City of Mirrors, three tales unfold. A Stormcast Eternal and Khorne Bloodreaver are linked by dreams of the past; a lone Stormcast seeks his brethren amidst the mirrors, and an aelven prince looks for something lost…
READ IT BECAUSE
These three audio adventures are the first Black Library tales to be set in the city of Shadespire, and explore the dark curse set upon it by Nagash in three different and exciting ways.
Long ago, the Katophranes of the city of Shadespire dared to defy their god. But in the Realm of Death, the ruler of the underworlds does not permit treachery, for Nagash rules all. To punish their attempts to cheat death, Nagash cursed Shadespire to an eternal half-life. Now, centuries later, brave warriors enter the shattered remains of the Mirrored City in search of secrets and riches… and for other, darker purposes. The three tales in this audio drama anthology showcase the dangers and mysteries of Shadespire, as the Stormcast Eternals – and their allies and enemies alike – find themselves trapped, alone and in more danger than they could have possibly imagined.

The Horus Heresy Book 50
The Salamanders battle through the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy in this collection of novellas and short stories that showcase the selfless heroism of the Fireborn.
READ IT BECAUSE
Finally, all of Nick Kyme’s shorter Salamanders stories – a novel, two novellas and two short stories – are collected together into a numbered volume in the series. Dive in and get lost in the fiery action.
Born of the fiery world of Nocturne, the Salamanders believe in self sacrifice and the sanctity of human life. Their father Vulkan was raised on this world, a blacksmith’s son from humble origins who became a primarch of the Emperor of Mankind and forged his sons into a Legion. Their saga is one of heroism, betrayal, tragedy and rebirth. They have returned from the edge of extinction more than once, forever embattled, never bowed, the Legion and their primarch the epitome of defiance in the face of adversity. Unto the anvil, born of flame.
This collection contains the novellas Promethean Sun and Scorched Earth, the novel Sons of the Forge and two connected short stories.
Written by Nick Kyme
Total running time 954 minutes. Narrated by Jonathan Keeble and Saul Reichlin
Defiant (ebook): $4.99
An Imperial Knights story
As necrons swarm across the world of Pyrodiah, a lance of Imperial Knights bring the Emperor’s wrath to the ancient xenos.
READ IT BECAUSE
Andy Clark returns to Imperial Knights with a tale of fire and fury.
Pyrodiah is in grave peril. The undying alien necrons have risen and swarm across the world, burning hive cities and decimating the population. The Imperial Knights of Adrastapol have arrived to help sway the war in the Imperium’s favour, but their commander – Lady Jennika Tan Draconis, pilot of the storied Knight Fire Defiant – knows all too well the danger the necrons pose and the cost that will inevitably come with victory.
