Primarchs: Lorgar (Hardback) $19

THE STORY
On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods – until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power. As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father Kor Phaeron, and the fate that he knows awaits him among the stars.

~What are you picking up?

  • I quite like those 40k ruins, they kinda remind me of 2nd ed. The game boards look interesting too…I assume they are card like the Bloodbowl pitches. I wonder what size they are.

    • Harry_Jamieson

      October’s WD has the details: it’s 5’6″ by 3’4″, built of 4 folding tiles. It’s double-sided, with the 2 designs as seen in the pic. It has push-fit plastic terrain and objectives, and a mini-campaign with 3 unique missions.

      • ZeeLobby

        I’m just not sure how it makes sense. I mean I guess since they’re tiles they’re easier to store than a single board. Unlike realm of battle though, you won’t be able to switch them at will as clearly they’ve been printed in completely different themes. I could also see gaps forming between tiles during play, and it doesn’t give you the same ability to slide models around that the neoprene mats do. I mean it sounds like a better product than their iron flat blankets, but I still don’t know why they don’t just go the rollable neoprene mat route like the rest of the industry, which is pretty widely accepted as amazing. It’s almost like they don’t want to do it unless they were first.

        • joe johnston

          So… negative… all the time…

          • ZeeLobby

            Because I want GW to make a better product? I’d rather buy my neoprene from GW to be honest, especially if they made then cool themed designs (and relaxed on the bright oranges and yellows). Instead we get a too-small blanket and odd-sized card stock. I’m sorry if I’m not overly impressed from the industry leader.

        • Severius_Tolluck

          Well it does have a positive note that it is fairly modular. it also describes that it will have vinyl tape to hold the tiles together during play and so forth. So it shouldn’t be too bad. Also you could also do what I do and lay down draw mats beneath the tiles so they do not slide. Other advantage of the tiles like these is they often can be double sided where neoprene is not, same with modularity . Personally I do not like pre printed anything.

        • marxlives

          That is true, I like the idea that GW is putting out but they are like 10 years behind all the time. All you can say is “well I am glad they did something”. The neoprene mats are pretty much industry standard now unless it is a starter set but even Deadzone starters come with a neoprene mat.

    • wibbling

      They’ll be handy for Necromunda, when it’s released.

    • ZeeLobby

      It’s honestly the terrain I wish came with the starter set.

  • Crevab

    What am I picking up? Nothing since this weekend they arrive… for preorder

    • ZeeLobby

      Well, for BoLS it’s just as exciting to give GW money as it is to get the models 😛

  • CloakingDonkey

    So IG isn’t getting any releases either huh? That’s incredibly disappointing. I’m not buying 25 year old tank kits at premium prices =/

    • ZeeLobby

      I imagine the only new models, short of a unit here or there, will be for brand new mini factions (ala Death Guard). I could see them doing some new IG world at some point. I doubt they’ll revisit anything that has older models (want you to buy new stuff).

      • CloakingDonkey

        Probably yeah. That is definitely the biggest thing keeping me out of 40K though. Every faction I like has at least half a dozen ancient, ugly models, or store exclusives or TrashCast… or any combination of the three. It’s really annoying.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Those tank kits are actually rather newer then that. They were retooled and made simpler in like 2009. Most of the guard have been redone post 2003. Only models they really need to touch up on are if they are changing focus planet instead of cadians. Like new steel legion or something. I would love to see new plastic infantry of different or multi planet choices on the sprues. New rough riders for sure, now those are over 20 years old!

      • I_am_Alpharius

        Was just about to say the same thing. I had 2010 in my head, around when the Valkyrie was done in plastic.

        • Severius_Tolluck

          Yeah sounds right, Whenever the 5th ed book dropped was when they redid the tanks to be simple. So they lack many of the cool bits the old kits had, but came with new bits to make plasma and such etc.

      • CloakingDonkey

        That doesn’t help me much when they still look like 2nd Edition Chimaeras and Leman Russes… The designs are tired and the kits have giant gaps.

        • Severius_Tolluck

          Oh well. That is not changing. Unless they redo all the guard to fall in line with the new look of primaris. If not, then they will remain the same.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          There are swaths of the 40K minature that still “look like 2nd edition” models. Frankly, don’t quite understand how thats an issue…

          • There isn’t a single infantry model in the IG range that I’d be excited to buy. The armor is cool enough, imo, but something like plastic Steel Legion or Voystroyans would have been nice.

          • CloakingDonkey

            Because they’re tired and old… and I’m not paying GW’s premium prices on sub-par, old miniatures… If they want to set those prices, they have to deliver and the IG range simply doesn’t deliver.

    • stinkoman

      about as likely as chaos getting updated troops (but who takes them anyway)

    • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

      This is week 1 of AM updates. A little early to be expecting new stuff.

      • I_am_Alpharius

        They’re not getting new kits for this codex release – along the same line as the CSM and GK. I suspect all the remaining 4 armies, getting a codex before xmas won’t be getting new models.

        • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

          Safe assumption, unless 1 of those armies is missing units available in a standalone unit box (Aberrations, Transcendent C’Tan, any and all of the remaining Triumvirate models).

      • CloakingDonkey

        is it? Both Primarines and Death Guard got releases in the week the codex arrived and we knew about them way in advance… We haven’t even had a glimpse of anything new for IG… This looks a lot more like the AdMech and CSM release to me.

        • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

          I reiterate what I said to @I_am_Alpharius:disqus: those armies had units that they needed (Terminators, codex-specific FA and HS units to make up for their removal in the Index, in the case of DG, and Primaris-compatible Transports and Specialist Primaris units in the case of Astartes). If an army has a deficit of unit types that limit its viability too much, GW will fix that, to a point.

  • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

    Drones and Crawler. That’s it. Maybe the Guard dex too.

  • 415Native

    Has anyone else noticed that the PlagueBurst Crawler is crazy under-costed in points for how tough and shooty it is?
