Night Lords Legion Nostraman Chainglaives £12


A weapon of terror as much as of physical damage, Nostraman Chainglaives were more powerful than the chainswords commonly wielded in the Legiones Astartes, tearing and shredding through flesh when swung into their wielders foe.  Promising a painful and gruesome death to their victim, the Chainglaive was a weapon of choice among the Commanders and Sergeants of the Legion.


This set includes five Nostraman Chainglaives for Night Lords Legion Characters. There are two Chainglaives wielded in two hands and two wielded one handed for Space Marines in power armour, and single Chainglaive in a one handed grip for a Space Marine in Terminator armour. Also included are the arms needed for the two handed chainglaives, two open power armoured left hands, and one open right hand for Terminator armour.


This is a multi-part, resin upgrade set. It can be used with resin and plastic Space Marine kits.

Ultramarines Praetorian Breacher Shields £20


First through the breach in assaulting enemy fortifications or boarding actions, Breacher Siege Squads are equipped with hardened armour and great ablative shields to withstand the enemy’s fiercest attacks and forge a path for the force’s main strength to follow. Breacher Siege Squads of the Ultramarines Legion are often further equipped with power weapons, eschewing the ranged power of the bolter for lethality in close combat.


This set includes five ornate Praetorian pattern Breacher Shields, five gladius power swords, five right and five left arms to upgrade five Space Marines to be an Ultramarines Legion Breacher Siege Squad. Also included is a Legatine Axe which can be used to upgrade an Independent Character, or as an ornate power axe for the Breacher Siege Squad Sergeant.


This is a multi-part, resin upgrade set. It can be used with resin and plastic Space Marine kits. Complete models shown were built using Space Marines in Mk IV Power Armour.

Deredeo Dreadnought Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery £18


The Deredeo pattern Dreadnought, with its formidable carrying capacity and battlefield stability, was used as a test-bed for a number of advanced weapon systems. Chief amongst its anti-vehicle armaments was the Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery. More powerful than any pattern of Lascannon regularly fielded by the Legiones Astartes, the Arachnus could inflict more damage with each hit than standard Las-weaponry.


This is a multi-part resin upgrade kit for the Deredeo pattern dreadnought.


Blood Bowl Goblin & Halfling Referees £15


These Blood Bowl Referees are available to order until 26th January 2017. Order yours now!

A surprisingly large number of Blood Bowl referees are Goblins. They’re nimble enough to keep out of the players’ way, beady-eyed enough to spot any misbehaviour, malicious enough to enjoy calling players out and morally flexible enough to always be up for a bribe or two. Of course, it’s never a good idea to get on the wrong side of a Goblin (especially one with authority!), and players who resist being sent off usually find themselves on the wrong side of a surprisingly vicious beating – all officially sanctioned and above board, of course!

Halflings love Blood Bowl as much as anyone, but their slight stature and disinclination towards violence means they don’t make the best players. For those that want to take part, though, there’s always the Official route! Of course, the prospect of telling a nine-foot-tall troll that he’s committed a foul tends to discourage a lot of candidates, so most Halfling referees that make it through training are singularly ill-tempered and unhinged, and generally have a bone to pick with all the bigger sorts who have been pushing them around all their lives.

Now, for a limited time, you can get your own referees to oversee your games of Blood Bowl and make sure that everything is above board… or at least that the appropriate bribes are paid. These referees are wonderful collector’s pieces that can be used to help remind you that the fouling rule is in play, or to call that game changing Illegal Procedure! Additional rules for using these referees in your games can be found in the January issue of White Dwarf.

This set includes two complete, single-piece resin models. Two 32mm round bases are also included.


Gundabad Berserkers £22


From the great fortress of Gundabad, Bolg leads his army of Orcs and foul creatures towards the Battle of the Five Armies. Sprinting ahead of this mighty throng are the fearsome Gundabad Berserkers, creatures of heaving muscle and snarling malice with a monstrous craving for flesh. It is these hulking beasts that are first to reach Ravenhill and engage Thorin Oakenshield™, Dwalin and Bilbo Baggins™ amid the ruins. The scent of battle drives these Orcs into a frenzy, making them oblivious to all but the most fatal of blows.


Gundabad Berserkers are an excellent elite unit for an Azog’s Legion army. The combination of their high Strength value, multiple attacks and the ability to take a variety of weapons allows them to butcher their foes with sheer brutality. On top of this, the Gundabad Berserkers are bloodthirsty killers driven into madness by the spilling of blood. Blinded by the frenzy that overtakes them, they are oblivious to the pain that is inflicted by their foes, allowing them to fight on even with debilitating injuries. This kit includes three Gundabad Berserkers and a total of nine weapon options: three swords, three axes and three two-handed picks, allowing you to equip your Berserkers with whichever combination of weapons you wish.


Rules for using Gundabad Berserkers can be found in The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy™ There and Back Again.

This is a multi-part resin kit that includes multiple weapon options and makes three complete miniatures. Three 25mm round bases are included.


Deredeo Dreadnought with Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery £65


The Deredeo Dreadnought with Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery includes a Deredeo pattern Dreadnought body, a Deredeo Dreadnought Aiolos Missile Launcher, and a Deredeo Dreadnought Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery. Together these kits built a complete Deredeo pattern Dreadnought.

This is multi-part resin kit, it includes optional heavy bolters and heavy flamers to be mounted in the dreadnought’s body. An 80mm plastic base is also included.

Ultramarines Legion Breacher Siege Squad £70


This set consists of two Ultramarines Praetorian Breacher Shields upgrade sets – including ten ornate shields, ten gladius power swords, ten left and ten right arms, and two Legatine Axes – and a complete set of ten plastic Space Marines in Mk IV Armour. Ten 32mm bases are included.

    • amaximus167

  • SupPupPup

  • TDog

    Sorry… can’t get behind those Nostraman chain glaives… it looks like a bunch of Astartes are coming by to trim your trees.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      And yet they are super effective at killing #TwoBirdsOneStone

      • nurglitch

        The terrifying topiary skills of the Night Lords have been known to quell entirely planetary rebellions.

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          Poor Conrad, the Emperor never asks about his son’s interest in the art of topiary.

          • nurglitch

            I don’t think the Emperor liked the 8th Primarch.

          • Red_Five_Standing_By

            Well that’s what Conrad gets for focusing on his Topiary skills! #DaddyIsDispleased

    • georgelabour

      Well…obviously they don’t expect mere mortals to prepare the local foliage that they’ll later be impaling people on.

  • Emperor’s Champion

    can we have fist shields now please !!!

  • D. B.

    Those geniuses at FW sent me the newsletter with the title “ILLEGAL ACTION!”. For a horrible moment, I thought someone had hacked into my account and tried to place an order or something… XD

  • Keith Wilson

    those refs look bad

  • The two open hands for power armour, that come with the chain glaives, might be good for converting a librarian…

  • Dan Wilson

    Chain glaives would work for Carcharodons as well.

  • Matthew Pomeroy

    oh gawds yes on the berserkers!!
