Taurox / Prime $48.00
The Taurox Prime is a robust infantry assault vehicle. It is heavily armoured with thick plates and is equipped with an array of heavy weapons to support the Scions on the battlefield.
This kit can be built as either a Taurox Prime for the Militarum Tempestus or a Taurox for the Astra Militarum.
You can choose to build the Taurox Prime gun turret with battle cannon or a twin-linked Taurox gatling cannon. Alternatively you can replace the entire turret with a Taurox missile launcher. The Taurox Prime has two additional fire points. On each side of the hull you have the option to equip twin-linked hot-shot volley guns or twin-linked autocannons.
The Taurox can be built with twin-linked autocannons mounted on the sides of the hull or upon the turret. Both the Taurox and the Taurox Prime can be equipped with a pintle mounted Storm Bolter, bull bars and a gunner who can be positioned at 3 different heights.
The Tempestus Scions are amongst the finest human warriors in the galaxy. They are fanatically dedicated to the act of following their orders – even if it may result in their own deaths – and often complete missions so dangerous that they would be deemed suicidal for a regular guardsman.
This box contains everything you need to make a 5 man Militarum Tempestus Scions squad armed with hot-shot lasguns or a 5 man Militarum Tempestus Command squad. You have the option to use a combination of 10 heads (5 with respirators and 5 with berets) and ammo pouches, knives, grenades and canteens to fully customise your miniatures.
If you choose to build a squad of Tempestus Scions you have the option to upgrade 1 model to be a Tempestor. The Tempestor has a fantastic array of weapons options. The right hand can be equipped with a powerfist, chainsword or power sword, and you can choose to upgrade the left handed laspistol to a bolt pistol or a plasma pistol.
You have the option to replace the hot-shot lasguns with a choice of five additional special weapons: a plasma gun, meltagun, grenade launcher, flamer or hot-shot volley gun. This kit also includes a vox-caster backpack which allows one of your Tempestus Scions to fulfil the role of Vox-cast operator.
By building the Militarum Tempestus Command Squad you can create a host of miniatures that represent the very best Scions in the regiment.
You have the option to build a Tempestor Prime who has a great coat with a servo skull on the shoulder and a knife clutched in his right hand. You can then choose to equip a command staff or a bolt pistol in his left hand.
In addition to the Tempestor Prime, the command squad includes: a Medic with an apothecary tool in his right hand and a first aid kit in left, a Standard Bearer with embossed standard (which is the same motif found on the front of the Taurox Prime) and a Vox-caster.
The Ordo Tempestus commands the finest human soldiers in the galaxy. It’s disciplined ranks boast not only the elite Scions of the Militarum Tempestus but also brutal Commissars.
Within the 72 pages of this hardback, full-colour book you will find:
– A definitive guide to the Militarum Tempestus, including the structures of the Officio Prefectus and a record of many of the legendary deeds enacted by this brotherhood of warriors.

All this stuff hits the streets April 5th. Hmm, so the Codex is direct only – cutting out all the independent retailers… I’m seeing a pattern.
