Check out the latest from Games Workshop this week, and get those hobby dollars ready if you want any of these new releases that are up for pre-order right now!
Let’s check out the offerings!
Eldritch Omens Box Set Retail Price: $200
This box is packed with new miniatures for both the Craftworld Aeldari and Heretic Astartes. Every Asuryani model, and all of the Chaos Space Marines excluding the Forgefiend, is freshly updated based on classic designs and stylings. This battlebox is the only place to get them right now, and the 32-page booklet will give you rules and missions with which to pit them against each other in brutal combat. Eldritch Omens is a great way to start a new project or add to your existing armies – alternatively, split it with a friend, and play out the campaign missions together! Plus, with the multipart kits in the box, you’ll have all sorts of extra bits left over to customise the rest of your army.
– 1x Autarch, including multiple head options, two torsos, and a wide variety of wargear based on various Aspect Warrior shrines
– 3x Shroud Runners, sleek dual-crewed jetbikes, combining the firepower of Rangers with incredible speed
– 5x Rangers, with plenty of options for different heads and specialised equipment
– 1x Craftworlds transfer sheet
– 1x Warpsmith, with head, accessory, and weapon options
– 5x Chosen, including loads of options for different heads, weapons, and gear
– 1x Forgefiend, which can alternatively be built as a Maulerfiend
– 1x Chaos Space Marines transfer sheet
The set also contains a 32-page Eldritch Omens campaign book including new background, missions, and rules for both Craftworld Aeldari and Heretic Astartes units. This book contains datasheets for all the models in the box, two missions, the Goliath Down theatre of war, and Crusade rules for both factions. New and existing players will find plenty of fresh gaming options, making this an ideal choice for all collectors.
So the good news here is they are putting this on pre-order guarantee, which is a great thing. The problem is that none of GW’s box sets have sold out since hobbyists started catching on to their excessive FOMO and paywall sales tactics starting with Kill Team Pariah Nexus.
Depending on who you ask, it seems like they just arbitrarily raised the price of this box from $170 they charged just one month ago for Shadowthrone to $200 because… well I guess new miniatures?
Whether or not this box sells out will be a great test to see if consumer confidence in Games Workshop is back, or if the offering of a box of all new miniatures is not enough to get hobbyists to spend their hard-earned dollars on Valentines day weekend…
Also available this week on pre-order is something a little bigger…
JOYTOY Ultramarines Invictor Tactical Warsuit: MTO Price $150
Order yours now for immediate delivery on eBay by clicking here.
This 1:18 scale action figure from JOYTOY represents an Invictor Tactical Warsuit of the Ultramarines Chapter. The figure towers over the JOYTOY Space Marines, standing proud at 30cm high and 26cm wide, with an impressive 45 points of articulation, including a fully detailed cockpit that can be opened and closed. The Invictor is studded with weapons, including a twin ironhail autocannon, fragstorm grenade launcher, heavy bolter, twin ironhail heavy stubber, and invictor fist. The pilot stands 12cm tall, just like his JOYTOY brethren, and he can be dismounted to operate independently. He’s armed and armoured as an Infiltrator, complete with bolt carbine, bolt pistol, and removable pouches and power pack.
The Invictor Tactical Warsuit and pilot are made of ABS PVC and POM plastic polymer. The paintwork features additional layers of detail, including Chapter and vehicle markings, and incorporates edge highlighting to add depth and realism.
This bad boy popped up on Games Workshop as a “made to order” item. Is it time to make room in your display cases for this one?
He’s on MTO order until February 6th, 2022 and will be delivered within 6 months to folks that order it directly from GW. However, as we said above you can order one right now and have it shipped to you from Asia in way less time by clicking here.

New 40k Space Marines & Tau Pricing & Links
Codex: T’au Empire Retail Price: $50 Collector’s Edition Retail Price: $80
Introduce whole civilisations to the glories of the Greater Good, via a crusade of diplomacy or from the barrel of a railgun. Command an advanced empire against the darkness of the galaxy, armed with hope and a hefty dose of high-tech wargear.
The T’au Empire codex includes the rules you need to field your technologically advanced army on the tabletop. It includes a wealth of background lore, stunning artwork, new Crusade rules that let you start your own sphere of expansion, and more.
Tau players rejoice! Will the Tau return to their once dominating competitive performance? Maybe they are boosted up to the middle of the pack? Either way, a rules update is exciting for everyone.
Darkstrider Retail Price: $35
Command your T’au Empire forces with the legendary Darkstrider, a skilled Pathfinder who has refused numerous promotions to remain with his comrades. Making use of the T’au Empire’s advanced technology, Darkstrider is able to highlight the weak points of hostile targets, allowing his allies to destroy them with impressive efficiency. Darkstrider himself attacks with Shade, a powerful custom pulse weapon.
This 11-piece plastic kit makes one Darkstrider and is supplied with a 32mm Citadel round base.
Darkstrider’s new model looks amazing! Hopefully, his suite of support is good enough so that he sees plenty of play on the tabletop!
T’au Empire Ethereal Retail Price: $30
Inspire your T’au Empire forces with an Ethereal. Reluctant warriors armed with honour staves, Ethereals prefer to use Innovations to boost the effectiveness of their T’au underlings. Equipped with a hover drone, the Ethereal can quickly provide support and inspiration where it is most needed.
This 10-piece plastic kit makes one Ethereal and is supplied with a 40mm Citadel round base.
While this isn’t a new model, it’s still nice for players to finally be able to pick up an ethereal on disk individually. This model has been locked behind a paywall since way back in 2015 when he first appeared in the Infiltration Cadre Burning Dawn box set!
This model will also be available in the T’au Combat Patrol.
Combat Patrol: T’au Empire Retail Price: $140
Lead from the front with a Cadre Fireblade supported by a squad of Fire Warriors, while Stealth Battlesuits and a mighty Ghostkeel Battlesuit use their optic camouflage to flank the enemy, all guided by the wisdom of an Ethereal advisor.
Bigger than the previous start collecting, this box contains a suite of models that were great in previous iterations of the book, so hopefully they stay good options in their 9th edition codex.
T’au Empire Dice Set Retail Price: $35
Ensure everyone knows just how much you love the Greater Good with this themed T’au dice set, in the signature colours of the hot-blooded Vior’la Sept.
If you love the faction, show off your devotion with these unique dice.
T’au Empire Datacards Retail Price: $25
These new datacards will keep your suite of abilities close at hand, giving you an easy way to reference T’au Empire Stratagems and the Invocations of the Ethereals.
Datacards are always a great way to learn to armies and speed up those initial first few learning games to get you into the action faster!
War Zone Nachmund: Vigilus Alone Retail Price: $50
As well as a record of the shadow wars and open conflicts raging across the Nachmund Gauntlet – one of the few safe routes into Imperium Nihilus – this book provides an in-depth campaign system for Imperial and Chaos forces (plus xenos allies of convenience), extra Crusade rules for constructing an Army of Faith, a new Army of Renown for sneaky Space Marines, and a codex supplement for the angriest Adepta Sororitas, the Order of the Bloody Rose.
While Tau is the focus, this new narrative-focused book shifts some of the spotlights over to Chaos and Imperium.
War Zone Nachmund: Vigilus Alone Collectors Edition Retail Price: $80
Similarly, you can pick up this collector’s edition instead for a fancy treatment if you are excited about the narrative development.
Crusade Mission Pack: Wars of Faith Retail Price: $40
As well as these new Crusade rules, this book contains 24 new Crusade missions (six each for Combat Patrol-, Incursion-, Strike Force-, and Onslaught-sized games), plus all the requisitions, agendas, and Battle Traits you’ve come to love from Crusade supplements, as well as a table of special upgrades for your priests, who are, as one might expect, extremely useful in a War of Faith.
Crusade Mission Packs are essentially expansions to Crusade, making this a great option to a ton of fans of the game mode.
Space Marine Captain in Gravis Armour Retail Price: $35
As well as three separate helmet options, this Gravis-clad Captain can be armed with a master-crafted power sword, a chainsword – ideal for taking the tasty Teeth of Terra Relic – or two power fists (which are better than one). He’s a superhuman for all seasons. OF WAR.
In the field, Space Marine Captains inspire those under their command to ever-greater feats, as well as inflicting massive damage in melee combat and at range.
This kit is comprised of 25 plastic components, with which you can assemble 1 Space Marine Captain in Gravis Armour equipped with a chainsword, a power sword, or a powerfist, as well as a boltstorm gauntlet. It is supplied with a 40mm Citadel Round Base.
I heard someone asked for a new Space Marine Captain… just kidding, but at least this new option isn’t just the same old model in a new pose like some of the older “new” models. This model is way cooler than the Dark Imperium box one!
Plus he just got new rules that you can download for free by clicking here.
Space Marines Primaris Ancient Retail Price: $35
With two different flags and heads to pick from, this new Primaris Ancient can be posed bracing his banner with a bolt rifle slung stylishly over one shoulder or taunting his foes with a casually held power sword. He’s a fantastic centrepiece to a company mustered for war.
In the field, the presence of these veteran Space Marines and their priceless relics inspires nearby battle-brothers to epic feats of bravery and aggression in their Chapter’s name.
This model includes a choice of a helmeted and unhelmeted heads, as well as two different banners with sculpted details, and a choice of bolt rifle or power sword. The kit is comprised of 22 plastic components, with which you can assemble 1 model, and is supplied with a 40mm Citadel Round Base.
The heraldry from the banner really helps to elevate the Space Marine chapter both as a support piece and as an awesome mini to stand out in a swarm of marines.
