Dark Imperium $160

The ultimate Warhammer 40,000 boxed set

Across the war-torn battlefields of the 41st Millennium, Mankind battles for survival against myriad horrifying foes. Beset on all sides by hostile aliens and threatened from within by traitors, Humanity’s only chance for survival rests with the continuation of the cruel and bloody regime known as the Imperium. Yet few among Mankind’s untold population realise the full truth of their situation. If there is any future at all, it is a grim one…

Dark Imperium is the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 boxed set – a beautifully-packaged set of 53 detailed Citadel miniatures, the complete and unabridged hardback Warhammer 40,000 book, two supplemental softback books containing the rules and background for the included miniatures, and all the extra bits needed to get started with gaming as soon as possible.

Included:

Miniatures

Primaris Space Marines

Mighty warriors and fearless protectors, equipped with the greatest weapons and armour the Imperium can provide, the Space Marines are heroes one and all. The product of ten thousand years’ labour by Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl, the Primaris Space Marines were forged from fragments of the Emperor’s original experiments – they are immensely powerful and capable warriors, even more intimidating in stature than any of their previous brethren, created on the order of none other than Roboute Guilliman himself.

In this box, you’ll find 22 Primaris Space Marines clad in Mark X power armour, who can be painted as any Chapter you please:

– 1 Primaris Space Marine Captain, resplendent in cloak and iron halo, holding aloft a master-crafted power sword in one hand and wielding a boltstorm gauntlet on the other;
– 2 Primaris Space Marine Lieutenants, one armed with a power sword and bolt pistol, featuring a standard helmeted head, the other an auto bolt rifle and bolt pistol, featuring a bare head;
– 1 Primaris Space Marine Ancient carrying an Adeptus Astartes banner, wielding a bolt rifle and bolt pistol;
– 2 5-man Primaris Space Marine Intercessor Squads – the heart of a Primaris Space Marines army – armed with bolt rifles and bolt pistols;
– 1 3-man Primaris Space Marine Inceptor Squad – shock troops who slam into the fight with jump packs screaming – armed with assault bolters;
– 1 5-man Primaris Space Marine Hellblaster Squad – the finest marksmen, able to lay low entire armies on their own – armed with plasma incinerators and bolt pistols.

Death Guard

The Death Guard trudge inexorably into battle amidst the drone of endless swarms of flies. Bloated, rotten and riddled with disease, these revolting traitors are virtually immune to pain. Each Heretic Astartes is utterly dedicated to spreading the feculent blessings of the Plague God Nurgle and working the will of their cadaverous Daemon Primarch, Mortarion.

In the box, you’ll find 31 Death Guard miniatures, who can be painted in the colours of any vectorium:

– 1 Death Guard Lord of Contagion , a huge, terrifying Chaos Space Marine covered in spiked, corrupted Terminator armour armed with a plaguereaper.
– 1 Death Guard Noxious Blightbringer armed with a cursed plague bell, plasma pistol and a tocsin of misery;
– 1 Death Guard Malignant Plaguecaster armed with a corrupted staff and bolt pistol;
– 7 Death Guard Plague Marines – 5 armed with boltguns and plague knives, 1 armed with plasma gun and plague knife, 1 plague champion armed with bolt pistol, plaguesword and power fist;
– 1 Death Guard Foetid Bloat-drone – a huge, buzzing machine held aloft by rusted turbines – armed with plaguespitters and a plague probe;
– 20 Death Guard Poxwalkers – the rotten, shambling core of the army – armed with improvised weapons (hammers, claws, bayonets and metal pipes are featured.)

Rules

Dark Imperium contains everything – all the rules – needed to play games of Warhammer 40,000. From the 8-page core rules reference card to the 2 army-specific books to the complete, unabridged 280-page hardback containing the advanced rules and background, it’s all here, ready for you to play with from the moment you open the box.

Primaris Space Marines

A 24-page book contains the rules and background for the Primaris Space Marines:

– an overview of the Space Marines and the Primaris’ introduction;
– background for each miniature in the box;
– Heraldries and symbols for a number of Chapters;
– 6 Datasheets, special rules, psychic powers, weapons and points values for use in Matched Play games.

Death Guard

– background for each miniature in the box;

Warhammer 40,000

As noted above, this is a 280-page hardback, exactly identical to the Warhammer 40,000 book sold separately. It contains the core rules – the basics of moving, shooting, using psychic powers, charging, fighting and morale tests – with explanations of each battle phase. You can play a game using this, and only this; but the advanced rules are designed to add huge flexibility and depth, meaning you can play your games the way you want to, with Open Play, Narrative Play and Matched play options. There are advanced rules for terrain, Cities of Death, Planetstrike, Stronghold Assault, Death From the Skies, Campaigns and Multiplayer Battles as well!

There is no time for peace. No forgiveness. No respite. There is only war.

After more than forty thousand years of war and strife among the stars, Humanity stands on the brink of extinction. Beset on all sides by hostile aliens and threatened from within by traitors, Humanity’s only chance for survival rests with the continuation of the cruel and bloody regime known as the Imperium. Yet few among Mankind’s untold population realise the full truth of their situation. If there is any future at all, it is a grim one…

Dark Imperium (Hardback) $27

A Warhammer 40,000 novel

The galaxy has changed. Darkness spreads, warp storms split reality and Chaos is everywhere – even Ultramar. As Roboute Guilliman’s Indomitus Crusade draws to a close, he must brave the perils of the warp to reach his home and save it from the depredations of the Plague God.

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a new beginning for the Warhammer 40,000 universe! Guy Haley crafts a tale of the returned Primarch Roboute Guilliman as he races to save his realm from the servants of Nurgle – it’s the perfect accompaniment to the new Warhammer 40,000 game!

THE STORY
Fell times have come to the galaxy. Cadia has fallen, destroyed by the onslaught of Chaos. A Great Rift in the warp has opened and from its depths spew daemons and the horrors of Old Night. But all hope is not lost… A hero, long absent, has returned and with him comes the wrath of the Ultramarines reborn. Roboute Guilliman has arisen to lead the Imperium out of darkness on a crusade the likes of which has not been seen since the fabled days of the Emperor. But never before have the forces of Ruin amassed in such numbers, and nowhere is safe from despoliation. From the dreaded Scourge Stars come the hordes of the Plaguefather, Lord Nurgle, and their pustulent eye is fixed on Macragge. As the Indomitas Crusade draws to an end, Guilliman races to Ultramar and a confrontation with the Death Guard.

Pre-Order to ensure you get YOUR copy!

  • D_Ork

    are pre-orders shipped on the 17th? Or are they aiming to deliver them on the 17th?

    • Judging by the last thing I pre-ordered from GW they are shipped on the 17th.

    • JPMcMillen

      Depends on the shipping method. Ship to GW store will be there on the 17th. Other methods will have the item arrive on or after the 19th (exact time depends on shipping method). This is mostly because the vast majority of shipping companies only deliver Mon-Fri.

    • Nick Vaughn

      I’ve done some preorders where I pay for next day air and I actually get the items before the release date. It’s been a year or so since I’ve done that with the generals handbook for AoS, but I got it 2 days early.

      • D_Ork

        Literally one hour after posting this, GW sent me a notice that my order has shipped. With standard shipping that will be here in 3-6 days!

  • Sicxpence

    My local non-GW retailer said they are allowed to dispatch 8th Ed from the 14th
