GW: New Releases August 5th “Pricing & Links”

The Primaris Marines finally get full squads of Intercessors and Grey Knights AND Chaos in one weekend!

via Games Workshop

Primaris Intercessors $60

 

A strong core of reliable and adaptable warriors that can lay down fire while advancing or holding down terrain is an invaluable aid to any tactician. In the case of strike forces bolstered by Primaris battle-brothers, this role is fulfilled by the Intercessor Squads. Capable of levelling overlapping salvoes of firepower, these squads often form the flexible fighting core of newly-founded Primaris Chapters – though of course many established Chapters have eagerly leveraged their abilities, fielding them alongside Tactical Squads.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 10 Primaris Intercessors. Wearing Mk X Tacticus armour in order to take advantage of its protection and mobility, they prove to be reliable and adaptable warriors, each armed with bolt rifles. Their bolt rifles can be 1 of 3 variants – the standard bolt rifle with sickle magazine, auto bolt rifle with overcharger and box magazine, or stalker bolt rifle with longer-range sight and straight magazine. There are 16 right-hand shoulder pads decorated with the iconography of the Intercessors – enough to cover each of the variant arms, including 2 with an open radio panel, 2 gesturing for their squad to halt, 2 holding combat knives and 2 firing bolt pistols. There are a total of 36 different heads available in this kit, covering helmeted and bare options.

The models can be assembled as either a 10-man squad, a squad of 9 Intercessors with a Sergeant or 2 separate 5-man squads, each with a Sergeant of their own. The Sergeants feature unique heads, with a helmet mag-locked to their belt, and unique tilting plates to help them stand out.

Reflecting their battlefield versatility, the Intercessors come with lots of extra details to be added to their armour – 12 pistol holsters (2 empty, for the Intercessors actually wielding them), 10 ammunition and grenade pouches, 6 combat knife scabbards (4 empty), 4 single grenade pouches and 4 bolt pistol ammunition pouches.

The Primaris Intercessors come as 266 components, and are supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.

Primaris Hellblasters $60

Imperial observers have likened the fire of a Hellblaster Squad to the incinerating power of a stellar flare. Bolt after bolt of plasma sears across the battlefield; those caught in the Hellblasters’ sights are swiftly annihilated, their armour blasted to ash and their flesh and bone to glowing motes. Even armoured fighting vehicles are swiftly reduced to heaps of metallic slag. Deployed at the correct point and time, a single Hellblaster Squad can blunt the thundering assault of an armoured spearhead, or lay low even the most titanic alien fiend.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 10 Primaris Hellblasters. Clad in Mk X Tacticus power armour, they eschew the complex variations of wargear many of their battle-brothers carry, preferring instead to focus on and specialise in a single-armament specialism – plasma.

The models can be assembled as either a 10-man squad, a squad of 9 Hellblasters with a Sergeant or 2 separate 5-man squads, each with a Sergeant of their own. The whole squad can be armed with a host of plasma weaponry – there are 10 plasma incinerators included, with the components required to turn any of them into an assault plasma incinerator or heavy plasma incinerator, depending on your preference. The assault and heavy variants feature alternate muzzles, ammunition flasks and different cabling attaching the weapon to the Hellblasters’ backpack. There are 4 incinerators which are being carried rather than aimed; you have the option to arm 4 Hellblasters with plasma pistols in the other hand.

A problem (some call it a bonus…) of plasma weaponry is its tendency to overheat; there are several optional components reflecting this. Bare head options featuring nasty burns are included for the Sergeant, and there are bionic arms included, heavily implying lost limbs in plasma accidents. There are also plenty of pistol holsters, reliquaries, grenade sets and purity seals included.

The Primaris Hellblasters come as 250 components, and are supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.

 

Grand Master Voldus $35

Aldrik Voldus, Warden of the Librarius, wields more psychic might than any Grey Knight seen in centuries. The very air crackles around as he focuses his mind and bends the colossal energies of the warp to his will. With a word, purifying flames pour forth from the head of his ornate Nemesis Daemon hammer – the Malleus Argyrum – turning Chaos-tainted flesh bone and armour into pillars of ash. Heretic war engines halt as their twisted machine spirits are rent from their chassis. In Voldus’ grip reality constricts, and the helms of his enemies are crushed by invisible force; just as easily can Voldus sharpen the minds of his fellow Grey Knights, allowing them to channel their reserves into strikes that can bring low all but the largest of Daemons.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Grand Master Voldus, Warden of the Librarius. This is a miniature absolutely brimming with details, as befits a Grand Master of his power and reputation. His Terminator armour features numerous sacred inscriptions, along with plenty of skulls, chains and magical tomes. His legendary hammer, standing as tall as Voldus himself, is replete with purity seals and cabling reflecting its purpose as a conduit for his psychic energies, and he wields a wrist-mounted storm bolter on his left arm.

Grand Master Voldus comes as 7 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

Grey Knights Strike Squad $60

Strike Squads often form the vanguard of a Grey Knights strike force. Equipped with lighter armour than the main Terminator Squads, these veterans strike swiftly and surely, and are able to slip through gaps in the enemy line. At the onset of battle, a Grey Knights commander will invariably task one or more Strike Squads with the capture of vital locations and key objectives, deploying via fixed teleporter to ensure the rapid seizure of isolated or inaccessible locations. These Squads are essential – without their reconnaissance and preparation, the Terminator Squads would be a hammer swung blindly in the darkness.

This multi-part plastic kit contains ten Grey Knights with Nemesis force swords, one of which can be built as the unit leader, a Justicar. The models are covered in the inscriptions, purity seals and other details you would expect from this army, and the Justicar features a unique helmetless head. There is an array of weaponry and unit upgrades including Nemesis falchions, Nemesis force halberds, a Nemesis Daemon hammer, a Nemesis warding stave, two psycannons, a psilencer and an incinerator.

This multi-part plastic boxed set contains 236 components and 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases with which to make a Grey Knight Strike Squad.

Please note: these miniatures can also be assembled as a Grey Knight Interceptor Squad, a Grey Knight Purifier Squad or a Grey Knight Purgation Squad.

 

Castellan Crowe $20

Castellan Garran Crowe is both head and Brotherhood Champion of the Purifier order. A nobler exemplar of the Grey Knights would be impossible to find – by any measure, Crowe is a flawless soul, so resistant to the temptations of Chaos as to be all but immune. It is well that this is so, for Garran bears a burden greater than any of his brothers – the Black Blade of Antwyr.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Castellan Crowe, Champion of the Order of Purifiers. Armed with the Black Blade of Anwyr, a sword that can neither be destroyed nor wielded by any lesser mortal, he exemplifies the awesome sight of the Grey Knights’ power – every surface of his armour is covered in the inscriptions, symbols and signs that this Chapter uses to ward off the influence of Chaos. He features a cloak and back banner, and is armed with a wrist-mounted storm bolter for those times when enemies manage to stay out of killing range of his sword.

This kit comes as 3 resin components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.

Codex: Chaos Space Marines $40

The Chaos Space Marines are superhuman traitors grown strong on the power of the Dark Gods. The ultimate nemesis of the Imperium, they surge from hidden lairs and hellish warp storms to fall without warning upon their victims. Murderous warriors clad in baroque power armour fight alongside teeming human Cultists and hulking Chaos Terminators; gargoyle-mouthed daemon engines stomp to war alongside growling battle tanks and hosts of malevolent entities spawned from the warp.

Codex: Grey Knights $40

Book 2 of the Black Legion series

Returning after his long self-imposed exile, Abaddon offers the disparate Chaos Space Marine warbands within the Eye of Terror a simple choice – join him or die.

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s the long awaited sequel to ‘The Talon of Horus’, and it sees Abaddon step up his game and start to unite the Traitor Legions into a force that will once again threaten the Imperium. Also: Abaddon vs Sigismund…

THE STORY
Ezekyle Abaddon and his warlords strive to bind the newborn Black Legion together under threat of destruction. Now Khayon, as Abaddon’s most trusted assassin, is tasked with ending the threat of Thagus Daravek, the self-proclaimed Lord of Hosts – a rival to Ezekyle’s final fate. Fighting the vile whispers of the Dark Gods within his mind, Abaddon turns a fevered gaze back to the Imperium, where his destiny awaits. Yet the Emperor’s Champion and his Black Templars stand guard at the gates of hell, and Sigismund has waited centuries to face Abaddon in battle.

  • benn grimm

    Wooh! Black legion! That’s my rest of summer reading sorted…)

    • rtheom

      I like the artwork, with a Thousand Son and a Berzerker in black. It’s too rare to see those guys not in their legion specific colors.

      • benn grimm

        I’d rather the world eater with the heavy bolter was foremost, but it’s a cool cover anyway.

    • Spacefrisian

      Red legion…LET ME SHOW YOU THE POWER OF TALOS!!!Ohwait nvm got mixed up with Skyrim.

      • benn grimm

        Lol, back to winter climes for you outlander..;)

  • David Smith

    No power sword on the Intercessor sprue?
    Odd that there’s an option in the codex that isn’t in the kit.

    • Foxdonut

      Especialy since they removed dreadnought autocannons and every land speeder storm weapon option.

    • Spacefrisian

      New Marine dex next year calling it now ( with options)

      • NNextremNN

        That’s pretty obvious we at least need new Primaris veterans and I expect some other transport options.

    • biome3

      There’s a primaris ultramarine upgrade kit that’s coming out at some point, it comes with a power sword.

      • David Smith

        That’s interesting, so far there’s exactly one upgrade which is on the datasheet, but isn’t part of the kit.
        I assume that an upgrade kit would be more than just a bunch of power swords, so here’s hoping for more options.
        I’d really like to have a captain in gravis with some other options.

    • NNextremNN

      I also see just 6 helmets and 6 heads I wonder if those 2 sprues are all what’s inside.

  • Drpx

    I have to give them props for consistent pricing.

  • axs041

    New Primaris kits and a Grey Knight Kit but not even a Chaos Space Marine squad kit to replace the like 15 year old current kit?

    • AircoolUK

      Patience…. patience… Let them get the Death Guard out of the way.

      • euansmith

        Nurgle has patience, Tzeentch has foresight, Slaanesh has ant-i-c-pation, but Khorne WANTS IT ALL NOOOOOOOOOW!!!!

        • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

          Luckily, Khorne’s armoured mortals in AOS are the right size to make CSMs, just add backpacks and the odd Bolter/pistol.

          • euansmith

            It would be nice if there was a Khorne unit between paint old Cultists and Actual Space Marines, that the Blood Reavers could be converted to fill.

        • NNextremNN
    • ledha

      what are the news things in the grey knight kit ?

    • Spacefrisian

      Dont ask for that, it comes with a price increase.

      Only Havocks need a plastic kit.

    • benn grimm

      Convert new ones, it’s fun.

  • euansmith

    I like that the new kits come with options to make up a bunch of different weapon types. That sounds like a good use of plastic.

  • mhtsaropinigitakis

    what ??? GK come with minimarines? no primaris for them?

    • ledha

      just swap heads and shoulders and your done

      • mhtsaropinigitakis

        whos is going to buy minimarines now that primaris are out?

        • Josh Felstead

          The guy who’s just bought a few hundred quid’s worth of minimarines from me on eBay, to answer your question.

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            good job mate. i have to sell mine also 🙂 asap!

          • Josh Felstead

            Thanks! Didn’t think I was going to manage it if I’m honest. What chapter is yours and what you got?

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            my chapter is skullbearers (they look like imperial fists) and i have lots of stuff! alla pained to the last detail… the problem is that if i am going to sell them i have to sell them a bit expensive 🙁

          • Josh Felstead

            Hmm yeah I thought that would be the trouble with all the new Primaris kits out, but if you get them photographed and put up quickly I’m sure you’ll be able to offload them! I’d suggest using a buy it now or best offer listing, that’s worked best for me.

        • Spacefrisian

          I want dwarf astartes

        • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

          People who want meltaguns, grav-guns, and 2+ armour saves.

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            minimarines have 3+ svae and bolters… if you want meltagun you can put it to primaris and say he is a tactical…he dosent have to be a mini marine to get other weapons

          • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

            They want us to play WYSIWYG. Why would I bother converting?

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            u mean a primaris cant cant as a normal marine if you want? sure it can!

          • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

            I don’t mean to tell you what to do, but you’re not going to convince people that they should avoid perfectly good units, with perfectly good models, just because they’re old models.

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            i dont need to convince them…everybody decides for themselves…but i dont think that anyone will prefer a minimarine vs a truescale one

          • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

            “Truescale” is needless model snobbery for people who can’t agree on fact established in canon. And I don’t see a mad rush of people liquidating their Marine armies simply because an arguably more precise sculpt, in an imprecise game, just hit the market.

            And the height difference is negligible anyway, unless of course you’re a model snob.

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            i dont understand your problem dude… you wana keep your dwarves? its ok….maybe you are too poor to upgrade anyways… but dont say you dont see a mad rush cause there is THE MADDEST rush evah happening and the difference is huge …primaris are even taller thatn terminators..check it out…. soon youll have to smash your termies as well with the new tool – mini iron warhammer (tool)for smashin minis GW is releasing.

          • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

            No, I just don’t see the benefit of spending an extra $15-50 a squad, plus labor time, to get units that are on average only a few mm taller than what their representing, at the cost of not getting the superior statline.

  • el_tigre

    I’m liking the trend towards 10 man box-sets, gives me hope we’ll get larger boxes of orcs/gaunts/guardsmen etc.

    • Spacefrisian

      Could have combined the 2 boxes.

  • MightyOrang

    Interesting (in a bad way) to see that $60 is going to be the new normal for all their infantry sets…

    Second, am I the only one whose phone is constantly beset by adware when visiting the BOLS site?

    • Michael Bradbury

      No, I stopped accessing the site on my iphone because it was driving me insane.

    • Spacefrisian

      Watching it from my PS4 browser, it just loads better.

    • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

      Adware FTW!

  • BloodAngel

    What is new with that Grey Knights squad? Is that new sculpt? Or just a reissue of the original with 10 instead of 5?

    • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

      From the looks of it, it’s a 10 man squad with 2 of every Special weapon, and extra backpacks.
