THE STORY
Upon the oceanic hive world of Tsadrekha, the darkness of the Noctis Aeterna is held at bay by the golden light of a unique beacon. Yet as sharks are drawn to blood, so the ravening warbands of the Heretic Astartes circle the planet, warring to claim this rich prize for their Dark Gods. Now, one of those warlords has deployed a secret weapon to end the deadlock. Kassar and his elite band of Alpha Legionnaires, the Unsung, must infiltrate the planet, using all their cunning and warrior skill to overcome the planets defenders and corrupt the beacon. They need to work fast, for none other than Khârn the Betrayer himself has come to lead the final assault. As a rising tide of apocalyptic warfare consumes Tsadrekha, Kassar and his brothers must race for the prize or be consumed by the fury of the storm.

Resurrection: the Horusian Wars $27 (Hardcover)

THE STORY
War rages in the Caradryad Sector. Worlds are falling to madness and rebellion, and the great war machine of the Imperium is moving to counter the threat. Amongst its agents is Inquisitor Covenant. Puritan, psyker, expert swordsman, he reserves an especial hatred for those of his order who would seek to harness the power of Ruin as a weapon. Summoned to an inquisitorial conclave, Covenant believes he has uncovered such a misguided agent and prepares to denounce the heretic Talicto before his fellows. But when the gathering is attacked and many left dead in its wake, Covenant vows to hunt down Talicto and discover the truth behind the mysterious cult apparently at the heart of the massacre, the Unseen. In the murky plot into which he is drawn, Covenant knows only one thing for certain: trust no one.

~What are you picking up?

  • ZeeLobby

    Am I the only one who misses the old BL artwork?

  • BaronSnakPak

    Time to sell more bodily fluids, I’ve got an expensive weekend ahead.

    • UltimateCrimson

      You and me both. I still have 2 kidneys, I could sell one…..

  • Ravingbantha

    I wonder if those of us who play Space Wolves, Blood Angels, or Dark Angels are going to need to buy this book for the Primaris info.

    • orionburn

      Pretty sure they said rules for them would be included in the boxes.

      • Ravingbantha

        The rules are basic at best from what I’ve seen. Granted I’ve only bought 2 boxes, but the rules in them only gave power levels, no points for matched play.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      They will likely be included in those codexes… Unless they are made into supplements.

      But that never stopped GW from printing rules for Land ARaiders and Rhinos before. So GW is ok with re-printing rules.

  • fwangtash

    Dang, Repulsor and Rhino Primaris releasing later? I was hoping I could empty my savings all in one weekend

    • Matthew Hoag

      Don’t you know the Rhino Primaris has been out for a long while now? It is one of the Warhammer World exclusive kits, similar to a Damocles Command Rhino.

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        And ironically it cannot transport Primaris Models!

  • TenDM

    Whoops. Forgot to order the Codex and cards.

  • orionburn

    Can’t complain too much about the codex price since the Marine book tends to be massive. I believe GW said it was nearly as big as the rule book.

    • Spacefrisian

      And yet you use toget more options for a lower price.

  • Lord Fangio

    Anyone else notice the Mark X greaves on those Alpha Legion?

    • Lord Fangio

      Actually they have Mark X helmets and chest plates too. The Alphariuses have been stealing things from Mars it seems

      • georgelabour

        Plot twist. The alpha in alpha legion actually stands for Alpha testers.

        They have in fact been testing Cawl’s toys for the last 10,000 years in order to make sure they all work. Those chaos incursions were just due to….software bugs that will be removed in a later patch.

        • Sparowl

          Just ship it, we’ll fix it later.

          Yes, yes, I know about the Heresy bug, but I don’t have time to work on it right now – I’ll get to it when I have a free moment.

    • Spacefrisian

      The helmets were around during the Horus Heresy and the hip thingies were already on marine veterans before, so the greaves shouldnt be that hard to get either.

  • Mike X (Official)

    Does that Primaris figure seriously have a grappling hook? They’ve made Space Marines into GI Joes. Oh that’s just so sad.

  • Xodis

    Why do none of the Reivers have a helmet, but they have a facemask? They have 5+ versions of life support and extra organs under power armor…but only a single brain that they choose to keep uncovered in battle.

    • Crablezworth

      Yeah that’s weird considering 2/3 of the press fit ones have full helmets. Maybe they’ll have more in the box.

    • TenDM

      Gears of War tried to explain this sort of thing by saying removing their combat helmets allows for a better field of vision to watch for snipers and various ambushes. It lines up with the idea of Reivers wearing a lighter, more mobile version of the power armour.

      That’s probably the closest you’re ever going to get to an explanation of why the various 40k troops ditch their helmets.

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        Besides the fact that it is more cinematic.

      • Xodis

        Yeah, the GoW excuse would work if they were not wearing a faceplate, which is like saying the helmet hinders them but they are good with a gas mask lol.

  • Harkeal III Brennon

    Nothing for Death guard this week… 🙁

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Buying one of everything Primaris.

    Hard week on the ole’ bank account.

    Still, should be fun!

    I have managed to trade for 3 sets of the Box Set and bought 2 boxes of push fit Rievers. This combined with 1 of everything above should give me a solid base to build on.

    • orionburn

      I’ll probably get the Dread just because I want to build that sucker so bad. Problem is I still have zero idea on what chapter I want to turn my Primaris boys into.

      • Xodis

        Im in the same boat. Keep bouncing between Red Scorpions, Salamanders, and Blood Ravens.

        • orionburn

          I was so close to doing Salamanders as my first army but opted for Dark Angels instead. Still love Salamanders but really do not want another green themed army…lol. With the info trickling out on stratgems & buffs for each chapter from the new Marine codex I’m going to hold off on any decisions until I see what the rest of the guys can do.

    • I wish I could trade my DG away for more marines, but no one in my area is interested in DG at all.

  • DJ860

    I know people hate it but I love the dread.

    • orionburn

      I love the guy. Out of all the primaris stuff this is the one I’ve been waiting for the most to come out.

    • Horus84cmd

      Me too the Redemptor suitable imposing and epic. I am interested to see how much mobility has been design to the kits legs and arm joints.

    • Xodis

      Youre not alone, that Dread is awesome IMO. Any joke about it being related to the Robocop ED209, just makes me love it more too lol.

  • MightyOrang

    $50 for a codex? 10’of them by Christmas?

    There’s the GW I know!

    • orionburn

      The Marine codex has always been one of the biggest books out there. GW said it’s about the same size as the main rule book, so coming in at $50 isn’t surprising. That being said the other, smaller codexes shouldn’t cost that. They better come in at $40 or under, and yeah, highly unlikely on the under part.

      • MightyOrang

        I am just tired of hardback codexes that for me with tons and tons of fluff – and poorly executed at that when compared to previous codexes – – when all I really want are the rules

        • orionburn

          I don’t disagree. It would be a different story if some characters came and went. When my DA codex drops I’ll have the usuals – Asmodi, Ezekiel, Belial, etc. Not that I want to see everybody get killed off but dear Lord it would be nice to see some changes. At this point I’d rather take a cheaper “lite” version of the codex, like the index, to save $25. If I’m starting a new army I’m going to want the full codex to read the fluff. To get the same stuff year after year gets old.

  • NNextremNN

    Wow 3 different versions of the Codex I wonder what those will add.

    • Xodis

      My guess is just a nice soft rubber backing on the Collectors edition, maybe a ribbon bookmark.

      The Primaris edition will have all sorts of images, art book, and metal stuff like the Deathwatch codex did.

  • What the heck is a Primaris edition codex?

    • Wolf-Assassin

      An empty wallet, an overcharged credit card and a loan at your bank.

    • TenDM

      At that price I’m guessing it’s an army in a box with a copy of the Space Marine Codex.

  • Antoine Henry

    Good we are back in 7th Edition old fashioned multiple books, massive special rules etc… Why buy ? Just wait for scans as this will be invalidated by FAQ & Errata few weeks/month later.

  • Inq007

    Hmm they have removed several of the start collecting boxes from the site. Anybody know anything of those?

    • Son_of_Corax_XIX

      all are getting new rules in them and repackaged

  • Spacefrisian

    Where are the other currency prizes, those are shown in the pic afterall.

  • R. Fernandes

    Oh yay. Another story where we get to read about the SoB getting owned by a bunch of hyper-masculine men. Yay. I love this lore so much -_-

  • Richard Mitchell

    Prices for Primaris Marines are actually decent.

  • Laughing Orc

    Those Primaries Aggressors are *horrible* 😮

  • Josh Felstead

    I usually quite like all the new releases that GW keeps vomiting out, but those Aggressors just look STUPID. They’re so top-heavy that it looks like they have worse stability than a one-legged Imperial Knight. And as if the Reivers weren’t bad enough already with their ridiculous cartoon skull masks, they’ve gone and included a grapple gun? Get in the ****ing bin.

    Dread’s kinda cool though.

  • Gunther Clone C

    My question is: will the new primaris models’ rules be featured in other chapter codexes, BA or SW for example?
