A vision of golden celestial light, a living embodiment of the God-King’s might, the Stormcast Eternals are messengers of vengeance armed with the might of stars. Once-mortal champions of Order forged by Sigmar into an astonishing fighting force, hurled down from the heavens to meet the forces of Chaos head-on, they wreak bloody revenge on the Dark Gods, the corruptors of the realms. Their assaults are heralded by the rumble of thunder and the spark of sky-scorching lightning, their attacks are a raging maelstrom of bolts, and their enemies will soon be as dust under the relentless, righteous anger of their unified onslaught.

Knight-Azyors/Knight Venator $40

99120218003_SCEternalKnightVenator05

 

The herald of the Stormhosts, an avenging angel clutching a glittering starblade that can carve a swathe through the hardiest of foes, the Knight-Azyros wields another, far more potent weapon. He carries a celestial beacon, a lantern radiating the searing light of the heavens, a light that falls upon the forces of Chaos as a sea of torment far more painful than those twisted agonies the Dark Gods gleefully conceive. Wherever this light shines, so might Sigmar cast his divine bolts more easily – the Knight-Azyros is the tip of the spear, bringing glorious illumination to those places thought lost to infinite corruption.

99120218003_SCEternalKnightVenator04

This multi-part plastic kit gives you everything you need in order to build one Knight-Azyros. Featuring striking, posable wings of light, intricate armour and a domed helm, this miniature is an incredible example of the glory of Sigmar’s Stormhosts. The kit can also be assembled as a Knight-Venator, and includes a starblade, dagger, lantern, helm and shoulder pads unique to the Azyros. Twenty-six components in total, includes one Citadel 50mm Round base.

  • sleeplessknight

    So, how long does everyone else think the limited edition Stormcast Eternals battletome will be still available on the website for? I give it a year. Anyone else? Place your bets here!

    • Valeli

      Oh my god, it’s limited to 1000 copies? I’d pay triple what they’re asking for to be one of the privileged few.

      • vlad78

        Be my guest.

  • Eric Lindgren

    40 dollars for 1 model? In no way, is that alright.

    • Xodis

      Its nothing new, Single models that fall into the HQ, Hero, or any other special snowflake category are expensive. TAU have trouble finding a solo model less than 40 thats even worth buying.

      • DeadlyYellow

        The power pay. Not uncommon for any game really.

        Still, would be nice if they provided another set of common pieces to make both, but then they couldn’t squeeze consumers for another forty.

        • Xodis

          Well Technically with that $40 kit you could build both Knight Models, you just need to use one of your Prosecutors from the Starter box.

          Or there is that long forgotten skill of scratch building lol.

          • DeadlyYellow

            If you use a prosecutor, then you’re down the unit save for “counts-as”… if you’re fortunate enough to be in an area that actively plays it.

            Love the idea of scratch building one though. Could work some wonders with a little plasticard, kneadatite, and two hundred toothpicks.

          • Xodis

            Eh, anyone that actually enjoys the game will grab either a second starter or a box of Prosecutors, so you lose 1 and end up with a 5man Prosecutor unit….which is awesome btw because they hit pretty hard.

          • DeadlyYellow

            Yeah at $60 for the Prosecutor box, that starter box feels like such a steal. Especially since troops don’t seem to have an upward limit outside the agreed game restrictions.

            Unfortunately I am in an area where the game sees no real action. All I can really do is look at the models and throw numbers against one another.

          • Xodis

            Ah yeah that stinks. I’ve been mostly trying to stick to Battalion builds with minor changes. Battalion VS Battalion seems like its everything a WAACer could want as far as balance goes, so its the first place I start.

        • vlad78

          it’s not because it’s the norm GW enforces that it’s acceptable. The price is still insane.

  • I do like the cover art for the book

  • Orodruin

    Get back to 40k already.

  • D_Ork

    “A magnetically-closed box with soft touch finish and unique numbering”

    WT actual F.

    • euansmith

      It does sound like it should be a Slaneesh Codex… mmmm… soft touch…

      • edmundblack

        Goes hard quick though.

  • Xodis

    Looks amazing, but its not worth it for me. The art would be nice and I’m sure it added on $50 to the price tag alone, but one of the biggest draws for me to this game was the lack of need for an Army book, I’m just glad its optional.

    The models are looking great, and I might grab them once I catch up on my painting.

    • ZeeLobby

      I wonder how long until GW reverses their free rules policy when limited edition copies are still on the shelf months from now.

  • StingrayP226

    I want the Knight-Venator’s bird friend…

  • We couldn’t be bothered to make them decals or stick variant shields or shoulder pads in the box. $12 please. BTW, these have no effect on in game ability.

    • Xodis

      You must be new to GW lol. How many Shoulder Pad variants do we have for Space Marines and CSM now…. like 20?
      Or worst yet make the weapons that MIGHT make Noise Marines worth taking an optional kit as well lol.

      • I have been playing since 3rd Edition. In a tactical squad you at least have some choice OR a decal sheet. And the Tactical Squad only costs $40 for 10. This would make a squad of 5 cost $62 to change their faction. With no in game effect…

        • julien del rosario

          Completely Agree with you. I guess GW is, in a slightly flawed way, attempting to do upgrade kits a la Forgeworld. If only the base Models to which you would apply the upgrade kits to had no Heraldry and came with Transfers instead. At that point, yeah, cool.

    • Spacefrisian

      Shiny stormshield for thunderhammer/stormshield terminators?

      Oh dang it, them stupid Gravweapons shoot way to much, scratch that idea.

  • CapnDakDak

    “Personalize your dull, soulless, automotons with these crazy expensive upgrade kits!!!”

    • euansmith

      I want vinyls, spoilers, under-lighting, 36″ rims and NOS!

  • Here they are.

    • Spacefrisian

      LOOK MY HAMMER…its not a hammer to hammer.

    • edmundblack

      Eye trumpet in your general direction!

  • vlad78

    “Incredible backstory and details of the Stormcast Eternals”

    Incredible? How so?

    • sleeplessknight

      BEHOLD! The incredible backstory and details of the Stormcast Eternals:

      “We found that sales were strongest and most consistent in the ‘Space Marine’ range of products from our ‘Warhammer 40,000’ line. In order to maximize our profit in the ‘Warhammer: Age of Sigmar’ line we aim to use the visual and narrative cues that our target market identifies most strongly with from the ‘Space Marine’ range of products and supplant them into the ‘Warhammer’ line. This new product range will be called ‘Stormcast Eternals.’ I’m making all this crap up. A name that was created using words that our test groups found to be the most appealing words when used to associate with products from the ‘Space Marine’ range. Why am I still writing? We then plan an 8 week release schedule to introduce the ‘Stormcast Eternal’ range to market with advertising using word of mouth and ‘White Dwarf Magazine’ as our key driving factors. If you’ve read this far you’re a chump. Using the ‘Space Marine’ and ‘Warhammer 40,000’ sales charts from the last ten year period as comparison, we estimate an increase in sales in the ‘Warhammer’ line by 70% of which 80% of the profit driving product is from the ‘Stormcast Eternals’ range of product. We predict 30% of the blah, blah, blah. Fiscal sales projections. Blah, blah, blah, Dividend payout in excess of 15% blah, blah, blah. insert big pretentious word here. Blah, blah, blah, like to like growth blah, blah, blah. 1.21 gigawatts blah, blah, blah, reverse the polarity of the space time continuum blah, blah, blah…”

      • Spacefrisian

        You forgot…Oh look Mantic haz an Angel force, how did we not figure out that would be something for fantasy while we have Daemons around.

      • euansmith

        “Great Scott!”

      • John Felger

        Well… as you point out… their notion is that 40K is their best seller… an anagram of Sigmar is “As Grim” …so it kind of makes sense.

    • Spacefrisian

      Incredible boring?

  • Shawn

    This figures. After reading the first book full of stories I love the Hallowed Knights, and wish they would make an upgrade kit for them.

  • euansmith

    “Sigmar’s Wrath!” I’ve not read the fluff, but are Stormcast Eternals basically just golden Angry Marines?

  • HiveFleet Charybdis

    There’s reference in the main AoS book to Stormcast Eternal cannons that shoot lightning, suggesting that at some point we may see some artillery for them. Although there’s been no hint of a model yet.

  • Erik Setzer

    What is up with their limited editions being so different from one book to the next? If someone has the limited edition of the original game book, it’ll look very different, likely even in terms of size, from this book. It’s already bad enough to have a shelf full of GW books and boxes that are different sizes despite being published close to each other, this is them compounding the problem with a new set of books where they could have made it cohesive from the start. At least the non-LE versions are cohesive, but if you’re going to pay even more than the already overpriced amount you’re being charged, you should get books that look right together on the shelf.
