30 Years of Warhammer 40,000 Primaris Intercessor Veteran Sergeant $35

Celebrate 30 years (no, really, it has been that long) of Warhammer 40,000 with this Space Marine model – a special collector’s edition of the Primaris Intercessor Veteran Sergeant, which you can add to your Intercessor Squads in games!

The Veteran Sergeant is a multi-part plastic model, featuring the same impressive levels of detail as the rest of the Primaris Space Marines – he comes armed with a bolt rifle, a holstered bolt pistol and a sword (which is supplied sheathed), and his Mk X power armour features a crux terminatus and marksman’s honour on the right shoulder. The left shoulder is blank, meaning this model can be painted to represent any Chapter you prefer. The kit features 2 variant heads, one helmeted and the other bare.

The Veteran Sergeant comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base and a Primaris Character transfer sheet.

Primaris Hellblasters Combat Squad $35

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 5-man Primaris Hellblasters Combat Squad, complete with a Sergeant. Clad in Mk X 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 whole squad can be armed with a host of plasma weaponry – there are 5 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 2 incinerators which are being carried rather than aimed; you have the option to arm a Hellblaster with a plasma pistol 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 Combat Squad comes as 125 components, and is supplied with 5 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.

 

Primaris Intercessors Combat Squad $35

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 5-man Primaris Intercessors Combat Squad, complete with a Sergeant. Wearing Mk X 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 8 right-hand shoulder pads – enough to cover each of the variant arms, including 1 with an open radio panel, 1 gesturing for their squad to halt, 1 holding a combat knife and 1 firing a bolt pistol. There are a total of 12 different heads available in this kit, covering helmeted and bare options.

The Sergeant features a unique head, with a helmet mag-locked to his belt, and 2 unique tilting plates to help him stand out.

Reflecting their battlefield versatility, the Intercessors come with lots of extra details to be added to their armour – 6 pistol holsters (1 empty, for the Intercessor actually wielding it), 5 ammunition and grenade pouches, 3 combat knife scabbards (2 empty), 2 single grenade pouches and 2 bolt pistol ammunition pouches.

The Primaris Intercessors come as 133 components, and are supplied with 5 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.

Primaris Reivers Combat Squad $35

All Space Marines are experts of the rapid strike, but Reivers take these skills to the next level. They are specially trained and equipped to launch brutally effective and unexpected assaults. They do this with a sudden fury and shocking violence, for the Reivers fulfil the role of terror troops that sow fear and confusion amongst their foes.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 5-man Primaris Reivers Combat Squad, complete with a Sergeant. Clad in sleek yet brutally functional Mk X power armour, they feature a great deal of practical details – they each carry a great deal of extra ammunition and equipment pouches, as well as grenade harnesses and blade sheaths.

The kit features an impressive selection of weapon options; 5 heavy bolt pistols, 6 bolt carbines and 6 combat knives are included, with the loadout options being carbine, pistol and carbine or pistol and combat knife. 1 of the sets of arms for combat knives features a communications array on the vambrace, designed for the Sergeant. The bolt carbines each feature foregrips and curved mags for that tactical look, with 1 modelled in the middle of reloading. Each model can also take a grapnel launcher – 5 are included in holsters, with a further 2 to be held in the right hand.

Each model can also feature grav-chutes – 10 fins are included, 5 for each side of the Reivers’ backpacks. They have plenty of helmet options too – 5 helmets featuring their unique skull design, 5 with the top removed and the lower half remaining and 2 Sergeant-specific bare heads. Each chest plate is decorated with a skull and crossed dagger motif.

The Primaris Reivers Combat Squad comes as 114 components, and is supplied with 5 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.

Primaris Strike Force – Patrol Detachment $105

Warscroll Cards: Disciples of Tzeentch $25

The Changer of Ways, the Master of Fortune, the Great Conspirator and the Architect of Fate – these are just some of the names of Tzeentch. A brother god to Nurgle, Khorne and Slaanesh, and often an ally of the Horned Rat, he is the undisputed master of the arcane arts. His followers, daemon and mortal alike, swarm over the mortal realms in scintillating glory, searing the land with coruscating flames of change.

This pack of 25 large-format cards contains the each of the unit Warscrolls from Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch, printed on individual cards for handy reference in your battles, along with a selection of double-sided card gaming tokens – use these to indicate terrain effects, spell effects, command traits, and abilities for certain units and characters in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Please note, you’ll need a copy of Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch to use the contents of this set.

Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows (Hardback) $27

Book 1 of the Eight Lamentations trilogy

Eight mighty artefacts, crafted by the dark servants of Chaos, blight the Mortal Realms. The Ruinous Powers hunt them – and so do a group of heroes, chosen by Grungni for this dangerous and essential task.

This Weeks Primaris Pre-orders $140

 

If you need to up your Dark Imperium Squads to max size GW has you covered!

  • ZeeLobby

    That’s it. I’m buying 5 for $175 and making a squad!

    • Wolf-Assassin

      silly 😉 you cant have 5 sergeants in one squad 😉

      • Spacefrisian

        You sure…SW wolfguard…

        • Wolf-Assassin

          well they do have the same stats as the sergeants 🙂 but technically SW have no sergeants 😉

  • ectoplasmic gyrator

  • Rainthezangoose

    “Sterling” it was fun while it lasted.

  • MClay01

    Wow. I have been priced out of the game. I guess if I were a stingy parent and didn’t worry about the kid’s college funds and one day the wife and I retiring I could still build a new marine army. Guess the twenty something’s and the guys with clueless or understanding wives will keep the hobby going.

    • Oggthrok

      I have been too, in that I can’t pay $35 for a captain or $80 for a tank.

      But, if you want Primaris specifically, and these prices are eye gougingly high (they are) you would be surprised how far the starter set can get you. My FLGS was selling the marine half of Dark Imperium for $70. Over a couple of months I bought two.

      With that, you have a Gravis Captain, two Lts, two ten-man Primaris tacticals, one ten man Helblaster, and two three-man Inceptor squads.

      I bought a box of the push fit Primaris to replace the two excess Sgts this produces, and I intend to re-sell the extra Lts and Captain.

      When you point this out, it comes to about 1500 points – a very sizable chunk of an army. I have about $150 invested in it (Not including the codex, I suppose…) but that should come down as I ebay the unneeded characters, leaving it hopefully around $130. I’ll watch Ebay for some Predators or a battered Land Raider selling for cheap and clean it up, or splurge and get a Redemptor Dreadnought once all of the infantry are painted.

      I don’t know that it’s the most competitive – you can’t keep up with Tournament Meta collecting 40k this way. But, you can put together an army for the price of a couple of new videogames, or a night out at the movies.

    • Grenville_Stickwood

      Before wives, kids and being over 30 way back when I played we didn’t need to have huge armies to have fun. Does anyone do escalation leagues anymore?

      • UnpluggedBeta

        We were going to do one at the flgs, but all the players agitated for more tournament play and narrative so we couldn’t find a slot.

  • ZeroOne

    I would have been a little less disappointed if the “bundle” with the new lntercessor Vet Sargent, had instead been a start collecting box for them (I know they are SM’s but still). He looks like the type of character model to be in something like that.
    As for the 30th anniversary, a nice book with art through the ages, or the life and growth through the last 30 years would have been a real treat, and was what I was holding out for.
    Whilst I like the models GW put out, I feel their marketing team knows nothing about the hobby and has no interest in it. Which is a real shame as most of the staff we get to meet love the hobby more then most fans.

  • Shawn Lyons

    These combat squads seem to be half of the $60 box for $35.

  • david

    In the new WD, check out the small industrial tanks on page 64.Is these a new set or just scratch built?

  • Spacefrisian

    €30 for a mono pose model…With 0 options rounded up…Totally worth it…

  • Kiskatona

    If it turns out that US$35 for the combat squads comes out to AU$60 again (like it did with the characters), it’ll be far cheaper to just get the 10 man box, which are AU$98. ATM I’d only be interested in the Hellblasters combat squad to fill out my one from the Dark Imperium box. I do like the Primaris marines, but man are they expensive.

  • Josh Felstead

    EXCLUSIVE DEAL – 1 ORDINARY PRIMARIS MARINE FOR THE PRICE OF 5. Buy NOW feel terrible about it LATER.

    • NagaBaboon

      But he’s exclusive!

      • Josh Felstead

        I bet he gets bullied by all the other sergeants, poor guy…

        • NagaBaboon

          Hahaha
