THE STORY
Mere days after the loss of their home world Sotha, the Scythes of the Emperor stagger to the Chapter outpost at Miral Prime to lick their wounds and formulate a campaign of vengeance against the tyranids of Hive Fleet Kraken. Devastated and leaderless, these Space Marines now look to their only surviving officer, the reluctant Captain Thracian, for guidance. But the psychic shadow of the xenos is growing in the warp once more, and the bastion atop the Giant’s Coffin mesa may yet become the site of a most ignoble last stand…

Asurmen: The Darker Road $17.50

THE STORY
It is said the Phoenix Lords arrive on the eve of great moments… Guided by fate, Asurmen the Hand of Asuryan comes to the craftworld of Ulthwé. At the behest of the head of the seer council, he joins the warriors of Ulthwé and the young seer Eldrad on a quest to the Crone Worlds in search of the oracle Hiron-athela. It is believed that this being holds an artefact that could safeguard Ulthwé’s future, but in order to obtain it the eldar must travel a dark road…

Performed by Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Steve Conlin, Toby Longworth, Penelope Rawlins and Genevieve Swallow.

~Who’s picking up what?

  • Beefcake the mighty

    I have it on good authority that we will finally see the release of the legendary Stormhost general Traydmarq the litigious! Bore into battle by his mighty whorses Cease and Desist! Stay tuned!!

    • zeno666

      lol!

  • Pocketfulofgeek

    Am I being stupid, what’s the Slaves to Darkness Slambo: Exalted Hero?

    • Distracted Satrap

      I have no idea, but this seems promising: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Slambo

      • Pocketfulofgeek

        Oooo. If GW sneak out an updated version of that model that would be pretty cool.

        Hopefully it’s not just a release of that ancient model.

        • Cergorach

          Magic Eightball says: chances 50/50

    • Champildhir

      I had to delete my previous comment because I hadn’t read well what I was going to say… don’t know if new model or not, but below it is the description my local FLGS got, and it says “based on”

      – SLAMBO, EXALTED HERO OF CHAOS: Edición limitada del guerrero del caos clásico
      por excelencia (si ponen SLAMBO en google podrán ver la miniatura en la que está
      basada). Miniatura realizada en resina con reglas para ser jugada en Age of
      Sigmar.

      It is in Spanish, but it reads, literally “Limited edition of the classic chaos warrior (if you google SLAMBO, you could see the miniature it is based on). Resin miniature with AoS rules

  • Randy Randalman

    The prices have been steadily getting better.

    • Beefcake the mighty

      Do they pay you by the post, or is it more of a salary type deal?

      • Badgerboy1977

        He’s not wrong though.
        There are many products that have been released at a lower price than they previously would have and these box sets are great value for money given the contents.

        • ZeeLobby

          It’s just funny because back when stormcast released they were the “best price ever!” And then on their second release wave the prices “couldn’t get any better!”, Etc.

          • Aezeal

            No they wheren’t best price ever.. the starter box was.. and it is. it had a few large monsters and lots of well detailed mini’s

          • ZeeLobby

            My point was that Randy would say the prices were great even if they were doubled.

          • Aezeal

            Ow.. well.. ignore him.

          • ZeeLobby

            Haha. Yeah. He’s an odd one for sure. I was just explaining trying to explain to badger that beefcakes comment had little to do with the content of Randy’s post and more to do with his automated always pro-GW nature. It is creepy sometimes, especially since he never responds to any responses.

          • Red_Five_Standing_By

            The starter set was a good value but the Stormcast models in general? On the pricey side.

      • euansmith

        In the Randyman’s defence, I was also pleasantly surprised by the price of the big bird horse thing.

        • Sporkel

          It’s not a “thing”, dear Sir!
          It is clearly a golden, medieval Lady Liberty Terminaytorr on Tzeench-Pony!

          • euansmith

            Why, of course, it is My Little Hypopony, Deathblow Sparkle.

        • Mira Bella

          In Randyman’s defence?!
          You go and wash out your mouth young man! 😉

          • euansmith

            Hey come on, he’s got as much right to his poorly argued opinions as the rest of us 😉

        • luke snell

          absolutely! I was guessing they were going to eek out $50 for him, so definitely pleasantly surprised with the $40.

          • euansmith

            That thing is going to convert up a treat as some sort of Radland Ranger or something. 😉

      • Hawt Dawg

        Mantic’s champion has arrived!

        • Beefcake the mighty

          I wish Mantic would throw me a few bucks. But I picture their HQ as a dingy office with a leaky roof so I don’t see it happening 😂

          • Hawt Dawg

            Lulz! 🙂

  • euansmith

    “… but in order to obtain it the eldar must travel a dark road…”
    Is it the B3173? Are the Eldar going to Slough?

  • Grieux

    I must recognise SLAMBO is one of the best names ever yet. I feel like shouting it at the top of my lungs.

  • Brian Brodeur

    That Shadows Over Hammerfall looks like complete anarchy. I can’t tell who the good guys and the bad guys are. This could be such an amazing product if they would just stick with a theme of some type.

  • Xodis

    Im still excited for Hammerhal, the idea of focusing on the narrative more sounds awesome…..now how about some rules on creating our own heroes?

    • Andrew Jamieson

      Absolutely. Key to longevity right there.

    • luke snell

      still excited, yes, but also disappointed they didn’t take the opportunity to introduce at least a couple of new characters. but I am a fan of the game and am mostly glad they are still supporting the franchise.

      • Xodis

        Maybe the Cogsmith will be a new sculpt…has it been confirmed that its not yet?

        • luke snell

          ITs true, no one has seen the actual contents as laid out on the back of the box, so maybe. Surprised it is coming out already; was expecting to see this more towards the the end of march.
