Jain Zar & Iron Hands Coming in May

Take a look at the latest Eldar & Imperial goodies headed your way from GW.

Vaults of Terra: The Carrion Throne (Limited Edition) $65.00

THE STORY
In the hellish sprawl of Imperial Terra, Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Erasmus Crowl serves as a stalwart and vigilant protector, for even the Throneworld is not immune to the predations of its enemies. In the course of his Emperor-sworn duty, Crowl becomes embroiled in a dark conspiracy, one that leads all the way to the halls of the Imperial Palace. As he plunges deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the many palace districts, his investigation attracts the attention of hidden forces, and soon he and his acolyte Spinoza are being hunted – by heretics, xenos, servants of the Dark Powers, or perhaps even rival elements of the Inquisition itself. Soon they discover a terrible truth, one that if allowed to get out could undermine the very fabric of the Imperium itself.

Written by Chris Wraight.

The Eye of Medusa $15.99

THE STORY
Ever since the dark days of the Great Heresy, the Iron Hands have a long and tortured history. Their years of suffering and war has left them hardened and believing in a brutal tenet – the flesh is weak. Heavily cybernetic, their flesh extensively altered, these warriors of the Imperium are more machine than man, cold in aspect as well as demeanour. Their methods of recruitment are harsh, their rituals arcane, their pride unshakable. So when a world under the protection of the Chapter falls foul of insurrection, the Iron Hands answer with fire and cold retribution. It matters not that Thennos is considered sovereign territory of the Adeptus Mechanicus, for the Iron Hands’ campaign is one of extermination. But there is something dark lurking within Thennos, a horror that defies the purity of cold logic and the machine, and offers something more, something ruinous…

Written by David Guymer

Echoes of Revelation $15.99

DESCRIPTION
For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy – led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen… There are some who whisper that Horus’ rebellion was not of his own devising, but orchestrated by more sinister powers. While such thoughts are tantamount to heresy, they pale next to the notion that many noble heroes and champions of Terra are in some way blessed by a higher power still. Yet the war still rages across the Imperium, and all eyes now fall towards the Throneworld itself… This anthology CD features three short audio dramas following the half-understood destinies of some of the most important individuals in the galaxy.

Jain Zar: The Storm of Silence (Limited Edition) $65.00

THE STORY
The eldar are an ancient race whose mode of war blends spirituality with a unique mastery of technology. In times of need, their entire race will rouse to war – led by terrifying, almost mythological figures – the phoenix lords, immortal beings embody the warrior nature of the eldar. A swift and deadly fighter, Jain Zar can harness the rage of her scream to slaughter any who dare oppose her.

When a burgeoning ork empire starts to pose a threat to the eldar peoples, Jain Zar travels to the craftworld Ulthwé to warn them of the danger. However, she finds her plans to divert disaster are opposed by one of the craftworld’s own seers, Eldrad. With so many futures possible, which path should the eldar walk to avert destruction of their craftworlds and put an end to the greenskin menace?

~I’m assuming an entire Phoenix Lords series is in the works. Which are you most interested in?

  • Graham Bartram

    Iron hands against Ad-Mech just doesn’t feel right

    • Shawn

      No it doesn’t, but I don’t think their relationship with Mars would deter the Iron Hands, if logic dictated they act to preserve the planet and/or system from Chaos or some other equally awful threat.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        I hope it isn’t a novelization of the dreadful fluff in that awful Clan Raccoon book.

      • NovaeVox

        If the Moirae Schism is any indication, they’re more than willing to throw down against their own if some joker puts a 2 in their binary soup.

  • I read the title and for a moment I thought Jain Zar was going to get a new mini…with Bols I should have known better. 🙁

    • DaveTycho

      Same here 🙁

    • StingrayP226

      Same here was really hoping for a plastic Jain Zar and Howling Banshees…

      • Iconoc1ast

        It was the iron hands i was hoping for.

        Thinking “finally some plastic bionics!”

        • Even an upgrade sprue with bionics would be good.

          • Iconoc1ast

            Totally agree. I just guess that if such a thing was to happen then it would be through the iron hands squad again.

            Hope was dashed though….

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            Thank goodness for 3rd party manufacturers. I use mainly Anvil Industries bits for my IH.

          • Muninwing

            anvil has some good ones

            the FW upgrade had some too.

            and if you have a tentacle maker and some bitz, you can make some of your own.

          • Reven

            Or maybe a character?

        • Muninwing

          yep. came here to see what kind of goodies i could add to my slowly-coalescing IH army.

          sad robopanda is sad.

    • TenDM

      Yep. My Craftworld would have really used her too. Plus if they’re doing Jain Zaren they’re probably going to do all the Phoenix Lords. =(

  • Andrew

    That cover makes me wistful for the idea of some post-corruption Emperor’s Children upgrade bits from FW.

  • NovaeVox

    I saw the vid capture of you perfoming a shoulder check while simultaneously kneeing another guy in the face, laying down cover fire on you left flank, and casually screaming to the right on Spacbook.

    THAT is why why nobody invites you to parties anymore, Sergeant.

  • Chris Hateley

    Boring. Wake me up when there’s a new Jain Zar mini to replace the 20 year old one.

  • Another misleading headline from BoLS, que sorpresa.
