Codex: Blood Angels $40

Sons of the angel-winged Primarch Sanguinius, the Blood Angels are noble and magnificent, a proud Space Marine chapter with ten millennia of history. They are warrior heroes who descend into battle on flaming wings to stand between the Emperor’s servants and the heretical hordes that seek to destroy them. Yet beneath their heroic exterior lies a dark secret known as the Flaw, a gene-curse that has bedevilled them for millennia, ravaging their souls until they fight as much for a suitably heroic end as they do for victory in the Emperor’s name.

Codex: Blood Angels contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Blood Angels collectors. Within this 144-page hardback, you’ll find:

– The Angelic Host: the origin of the Blood Angels, the story behind their homeworld of Ball, the horror of the Flaw and the introduction of Primaris Space Marines to their ranks;
– Ordering the Host: a detailed breakdown of the Blood Angels’ Chapter organisation, their heraldries and vehicle markings;
– Colour schemes and heraldries for 8 successor Chapters: Angels Encarmine, Angels Sanguine, Flesh Tearers, Carmine Blades, Angels Vermillion, Blood Drinkers, Knights of the Chalice, and Lamenters;
– A Chronicle of Heroes: a timeline of major Blood Angels engagements, from the founding to the present;
– Background and details on each character and unit available to a Blood Angels army;
– A showcase of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures, with example armies featuring everything from individual images of models to battle scenes on terrain.

Blood Angels 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. Most Blood Angels strike forces now field squads of Intercessors alongside their Tactical Squads. Whether deployed as full-size 10-man squads or broken down to 5-man squads for versatility, they have proven an invaluable addition to the Blood Angels’ ranks.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 10 Blood Angels 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. They can be upgraded to represent the Blood Angels with the 2 included 21-component upgrade frames. This is a selection of 18 shoulder pads, 6 heads, 4 arms with weapons (a Mk X bolt pistol and a chainsword), 12 reliquaries and 2 tilting plates, specifically designed to add Blood Angels iconography to the Primaris Space Marines.

This is a 308-component plastic kit (including upgrades), and is supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a Blood Angels Primaris Infantry Transfer Sheet.

Blood Angels 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. The Blood Angels have no shortage of Hellblaster Squads ready to advance into battle with guns blazing and – necessary – forfeit their lives in the name of victory.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 10 Blood Angels Primaris Hellblasters. 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.

The models can be upgraded to represent the Blood Angels with the 2 included 21-component upgrade frames. This is a selection of 18 shoulder pads, 6 heads, 4 arms with weapons (a Mk X bolt pistol and a chainsword), 12 reliquaries and 2 tilting plates, specifically designed to add Blood Angels iconography to the Primaris Space Marines.

This is a 292-component plastic kit (including upgrades), and is supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a Blood Angels Primaris Infantry Transfer Sheet.

Blood Angels Primaris Aggressors $55

Clad in heavy Gravis armour, Aggressor Squads advance on the foe as walking fortresses of ceramite. More mobile than some other Space Marines, they’re better able to negotiate rough ground, making them versatile troops; while they are often employed in specific circumstances or on certain terrain, Aggressor Squads are used as reserves to plug breaches in gun lines or to spearhead an advance. These resilient and devastating warriors fulfil a number of roles within the strike forces of the Blood Angels, from spearhead assaults and siege warfare to active defence and asset denial.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components and upgrades necessary to assemble a 3-man Blood Angels Primaris Aggressor Squad. Extremely heavily armoured, their silhouette is wider and chunkier than most Primaris Space Marines, due in no small part to the choice of auto boltstorm gauntlets or flamestorm gauntlets. There are three sets of each, with every weapon featuring pipes or belts that are fed from the enormous backpack. One set of flamestorm gauntlets features retracted barrels, as in close combat fists speak louder than flames… Should you choose the boltstorm gauntlets, the Aggressors can also take a fragstorm grenade launcher.

You have the option of assembling 3 Aggressors or 2 Aggressors and a Sergeant; a host of options are available either way. There are 6 heads for the standard Aggressors, with respirators on the mask of those using flamestorm gauntlets, and 2 more specific heads for the Sergeant. The flamestorm-wielding Aggressors have their own shoulder pads, featuring larger blast shielding to protect them from the immense operating temperatures of their weapons. Also included are reliquaries and purity seals, with special examples for Sergeants featuring extra skulls.

The models can be upgraded to represent the Blood Angels with the included 21-component upgrade frame. This is a selection of 9 shoulder pads, 3 heads, 2 arms with weapons (a Mk X bolt pistol and a chainsword), 6 reliquaries and a tilting plate, specifically designed to add Blood Angels iconography to the Primaris Space Marines.

This is a 128-component plastic kit (including upgrades), and is supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases and a Blood Angels Primaris Infantry Transfer Sheet.

Blood Angels Dice $30

This is a set of 20 6-sided 16mm dice, in a variety of colours that represent the Blood Angels. Designed with square edges, with the pips perfectly flush with the surfaces, each features a skull in place of the 1 and a Blood Angels icon in the place of the 6:

– 12 x red dice with black icons, representing the main Blood Angels colour scheme;
– 4 x Black dice with red icons, representing the Death Company;
– 4 x Gold dice with black icons, representing the Sanguinary Guard.

Blood Angels Primaris Lieutenant Tolmeron $25

Lieutenants act as the right hands of their Captains by providing flexibility and helping to direct their battle-brothers in engagements. Battle Companies are often split into 2 Demi-companies, each of which falls under the command of a Lieutenant who leads his brothers unflinchingly into battle. Blood Angels Lieutenants are expected to take command, should a superior officer fall to the Red Thirst, and assume the role of the Sword of Sanguinius – failure is the only unforgivable sin in this role, while victory excuses any amount of savagery.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Lieutenant Tolmeron of the Blood Angels. Clad in Mk X ‘Tacticus’ power armour, Tolmeron comes with a power sword and bolt pistol – he can be modelled either holding the bolt pistol along with the power sword, or carrying the pistol in a belt-mounted holster. He’s covered in appropriate Blood Angels iconography, from the sculpted shoulder pads to the iron halo atop his backpack. You have the choice of modelling Tolmeron with either a Blood Angels helmet, or a bare head with a huge scar across the right eye.

Lieutenant Tolmeron comes as 15 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

Blood Angels Primaris Upgrades $12.50

This pack of plastic components can be used to upgrade a variety of Primaris Space Marines with iconography and details specific to the Blood Angels. 21 components in total are included:

– 5 Blood Angel Mk X power armour shoulder pads, which are used to upgrade Hellblasters and Intercessors;
– 2 Blood Angel Mk X Gravis armour shoulder pads, which are used to upgrade Aggressors;
– 1 Blood Angel Mk X power armour shoulder pad, for use with characters/Sergeants;
– 1 Blood Angel Mk X Gravis armour shoulder pad, for use with Aggressor characters/Sergeants;
– 2 Blood Angel bare heads;
– 1 Blood Angels-specific helmet;
– 1 right arm with Mk X bolt pistol;
– 1 left arm with chainsword;
– 6 reliquaries;
– 1 tilting plate.

Blood Angels Gamers’ Collection $85

Angelic Collection $125

Sons of Sanguinius – Battalion Detachment $477.50

The Elfheim Eagles $35

The Elfheim Eagles are notable for eschewing the fancy outfits and extravagant parties of Elven teams past in favour of drills, training sessions and even more drills. The fans may have disapproved at first, but after the Elfheim Eagles nudged out Nurgle’s Rotters to win Blood Bowl XX they became known as one of the finest passing play teams to ever grace the pitch.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components needed to assemble The Elfheim Eagles, an Elven Union Blood Bowl team. The team consists of 6 Linemen (4 of which are actually Linewomen), 2 Blitzers, 2 Throwers and 2 Catchers, each of whom are as impressively-cheekboned and beautiful as you might expect from an Elven team. The heads and shoulder pads are interchangeable between the miniatures, meaning your team can look unique.

There are a host of extras in the kit – 2 turn markers, 2 double-sided score coins and 6 balls, 4 of which are encrusted with opulent gemstones. Supplied with 12 32mm Blood Bowl bases and an Elven Union transfer sheet.

With these, you can handicap the amount of gold that top-flight teams earn, keep Star Players around longer, earn sponsorship deals (as long as you don’t mind being a dirty shill), bring in infamous referees, cheerleader and coaching staff, use different balls (some of which are a bit… explodey), and set up exhibition matches;

– 12 Star Players! Barik Farblast, Glart Smashrip, Kreek Rustgouger, Horkon Heartripper, The Swift Twins, Bo Gallanté, Willow Rosebark, Karla Von Kill, Helmut Wulf, Ripper Bolgrot, Scrappa Sorehead, and Madcap Miggz are all in here, ready to play for your team (for a price);

  • DoctorBored

    I love it. We get out of Necromunda at last, just in time for MORE SPACE MARINES.

    My hope is 2018 starting with Chaos Daemons will be a good sign for the rest of the year.

    • Munn

      Lol no, we go from Space marines to the OTHER really boring faction that gets WAY too much stuff: Chaos.

      • Jack

        Chaos is boring?? Please leave earth.

        • dynath

          It depends on the chaos, I mean all that Blood for the Blood God and Skulls for the Skull Throne stuff is pretty predictable.

          • Snord

            Agreed. For all the grief Marines get for being bland, the Chaos thing can get a bit tedious. I’d like to see less of that and more xenos.

          • Michael Cameron

            Like Tyranids and Aeldari? Oh wait….

          • John John Slade

            That’s why Tyranids love devour them. YUMMY! NOM!

          • GrenAcid

            I mean all that Blood for the Blood God and Skulls for the Skull Throne stuff is pretty RELIABLE.
            Man need standards in life, chaos provides.

    • Bootneck

      Don’t forget we get Dark Angels pre-orders next week 😛

      So the marine wave isn’t over yet and I don’t think it will be too long for SW either.

      • kingcobra668

        These guys are so bored with their lives they are planning their whining in advance now smh

  • dynath

    Has anyone noticed that the “blood angels” kits are just the generic marine kits with the upgrade sprue tossed in the box. I had hoped they would be a bit more original than that.

    • How exactly would they be?

      • dynath

        Look at the classic marine blood angels kits. they have different backpacks, chests, legs, weapons with icons, etc. The upgrade sprues are nice but they have done kits with more options before. Hell the new primaris kits have separate armor for plates for their lower legs, maybe just adding swaps for that to add knee icons or something would have been cooler.

    • Dooms Day

      It would make less sense for them to have Very “blood angel” like units at this point in the primaris because of how recently created they are.

      + this isn’t really the time for releases since we just need the codexs out and fast. When Blood angels get the next codex in 9th they probably will get a larger release of more unique primaris.

      Also atleast these kits are cheaper then what they should be. The kits comes with 2 upgrade sprues(besides the Aggressors) which would normally cost £8 each. instead these kits are just £2.50 more then the normal ones. (still not cheap, but this coming from GW is quite nice tbh)

      • dynath

        Never disputed the price. I just wanted actual blood angels kits. And frankly a lore friendly argument makes little sense because gw makes kits and then justifies it. As I said I just hoped for more

  • piglette

    Are marinlets getting phased out?

    • AdeptusAstartes

      Only as their Gene-seed becomes unharvestable.

      *accompanied by shifty side-ways eye movements*

    • dynath

      Officially no. In reality I bet it depends on how good primaris figures sell

    • Pat H

      I have the feeling this whole Dark Imperium thing was just an extremely ham fisted way to introduce true scale Space Marines. Next year Fabius Bile will have probably cooked up Demon Forged Chaos Space Marines or something.

  • CPT AWESOME

    Awesome.

  • MeatAbstract

    Almanac seems like a bad idea. I have no particular urge to basically re-buy the first two Death Zone books just to get the extra content.

  • TheWanderingJewels

    Question, is that the first instance of the Primaris carrying Chain swords? I don’t recall seeing that before
