Strictly limited to a mere 1250 copies worldwide, this is a stunning artefact which contains both War Zone Damocles books: Kau’yon and Mont’ka!
Both books are presented in luxurious hardback formats and also included a uniform guide, coins and posters. Also included within this limited edition are several Data Booklets full of rules and Formations for the Tau Empire, Cadia, Imperial Assassins, White Scars and Raven Guard – all the major players from the narrative.
If you want to own the entire story of the war for the Damocles Gulf (and all the rules) in one one fantastic limited edition, then this is the book for you.
War Zone Damocles has never looked better.
Following a humbling defeat at the hands of Commander Shadowsun, the forces of the Imperium return to the former hive world of Agrellan, now the Tau Empire’s youngest Sept world of Mu’gulath Bay. Countless regiments of Guardsmen are thrown into the meat grinder as the Imperial commanders vow to reclaim the world from the Tau, and even deadlier assets wait in orbit. Yet while the Imperium may believe it is they who will land the decisive strike, they have reckoned without the return of the exiled Commander Farsight – though considered a renegade by his people, he is the master of Mont’ka, the strategy of the killing blow.
Continuing the narrative left off in War Zone Damocles: Kauyon, this is a truly spectacular chapter in the story of the Tau Empire! Included are two hardback books – a 120-page narrative campaign, and an 88-page rulebook in a hardback slipcase.
These books feature a host of content and updates:
Eleven new Formations for Codex: Tau Empire
New Detachment and Farsight Enclaves Tactical objectives
Eight Lords of War and ten Formations for Codex: Astra Militarum

Kauyon – detailing the struggles between the Tau Empire and the Adeptus Astartes over the fortress world of Prefectia and Mont’ka – chronicling the Astra Militarum’s vicious war of attrition with the Tau over Agrellan. Both books include a huge amount of new content and updates for the armies featured, bringing you up to date with their developments – you’ll have all the new rules for the Tau releases, and full rules for the Officio Assassinorum miniatures!
Enormous stone sentinels older than memory, Helforts hold and contain ancient and malevolent magic within their walls. None but the gods know who built them, and when. Their incredible power allows their garrison to collapse a section of the Helfort’s walls upon their attackers, crushing and slowing their advance. For most strongholds, such a breach would prove ultimately fatal in a siege – however, the Helfort’s enchantments see to it that each dawn, the collapsed walls stand anew, glowing with sorcerous flame, ready to repel once more.
This awesome box gives you everything needed to assemble the Helfort, an imposing fortress complete with unique Warscroll Battalion! This truly is a massive kit, with which you can build a vast semi-circle of impregnable daemon-hewn scenery – it’ll make jaws drop when placed across a gaming table. The Helfort features broken wall sections, allowing you to bring the walls down on your opponent – at the risk of opening a hole for them to swarm through! This multi-part plastic kit consists of two Skull Keeps, one Malefic Gate, six wall sections and two broken wall ends.
Relicos Militarum $250
Once a repository of artefacts from the war-torn history of the Imperium, the Relicos Militarum now stands in ruins. The centuries of bombardment have reduced its once-proud lines of imposing statues to rubble – and yet it remains jealously guarded, as the Relicos still contains treasures from ancient times alongside functioning weaponry from laslocks to plasma carronades. Deep within, it is even said there are examples of pre-Imperial weaponry that – heretical though this may be – could potentially be coaxed back into life…
An awesome, huge scenery kit, the Relicos Militarum can be put together in a huge number of configurations. Includes a full set of unique rules, and a scenario for use in games of Warhammer 40,000.
A proven, renowned war machine, the Leman Russ Battle Tank has been deployed in countless successful operations in a huge number of conflicts across the galaxy. A byword for reliability and deadliness, with exceptional versatility, this tank has been in faithful service for millenia – a testament to Imperial engineering.
Overseen by a Tech-Priest Enginseer, an Adeptus Mechanicus servant whose life has been dedicated to understanding and carrying out the will of the Machine God, this armoured destroyer can be found wherever the struggle of Mankind are apparent.
This awesome box set contains a Leman Russ, a Squadron Command Frame and a Tech-Priest Enginseer. The Leman Russ comprises ninety-five components and can be optionally assembled as a Leman Russ Battle Tank, Eradicator, Exterminator or Vanquisher, with a huge array of alternate weapons and a transfer sheet.
The Squadron Command Frame features a set of detailed upgrades for your vehicle, including vox-caster and scanner, and the Tech-Priest Enginseer comes armed with a cog axe, censer and holstered pistol. Supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
On the battlefield, almost nothing in the galaxy is the equal of a Space Marine Captain. Answering only to a Chapter Master, dedicated to service and displaying a natural talent and ability for leadership, a Space Marine Captain is capable of reading situations and predicting optimal outcomes with a cool, detached efficiency that belies their every bit as impressive fighting prowess.
Add in some Terminator armour, built from carefully reinforced ceramite, bathed in a protective force field and backed up with some truly devastating weaponry and you’ve got yourself an absolute colossus of a war machine – and the Blood Angels are certainly appreciative of a good killer.
This multi-part plastic kit gives you everything you need to build one Blood Angels Captain in Terminator Armour, who comes with a Storm Bolter and Thunder Hammer. Supplied with one Citadel 40mm Round Base.
The spiritual leaders of the Chapter, roaring into battle clad in jet-black armour covered in grim portents of death, Chaplains are a terrifying, death-dealing icon of the Space Marines, feared and respected by all who encounter them.
The Chaplains of the Blood Angels must constantly watch for signs of the Black Rage, as only they are able to communicate with those who succumb and successfully lead them into glorious battle. This Chaplain wears a jump pack – eager to lead by example and leap directly into the heart of the foe.
This kit contains all the components necessary to assemble on Blood Angels Chaplain with Jump Pack, a single-pose miniature. Armed with an Inferno Pistol and wielding a Crozius, the tread of his boots features a Blood Angels symbol – grind this icon into the faces of your foes! Supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
Eversor Assassin $32
Assassins protect the future of humanity by eliminating the few who become tainted with treachery, greed, the daemonic or other evils too heinous to name. Formal records of their exploits are not available – it is not known precisely how many worlds have been saved from destruction by these secretive killers, but it is safe to say billions of lives are owed to their selfless actions. The Assassins work silently and without thanks. They are the bloody-handed and secret saviours of the Imperium.
Most Assassins operate with stealthy precision, lurking in the shadows – or sometimes in plain sight – and striking with accuracy when the time is exactly correct. Not so the Eversor Assassin! The Eversor Temple believes that the best way to eliminate a target is in a blaze of psychotic fury, disregarding factors such as collateral damage, practicality or the potential innocence of bystanders.
This Assassin is in a permanent state of searing rage, kept in check by massive doses of sedatives; when the time comes for him to act, he’s roused from his coma and unleashed. Only his death will stop his berserk mission.
This pack contains one multi-part Eversor Assassin, and is supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
Culexus Assassin $32
This pack contains one multi-part Culexus Assassin, and is supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
Capable of infiltrating even the most highly-secure facilities, Callidus Assassins use shape-altering drugs to appear in almost any form they want, whether a beautiful human woman or a slightly less pleasing to the eye, hulking Ork.
Preferring to attack with the element of surprise that this affords them, they are rarely found in the midst of battle, rather attacking suddenly and disappearing immediately. Panic, terror and confusion are their calling cards.
This pack contains one multi-part Callidus Assassin, and is supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
Prizing accuracy above all, Vindicare Assassins are snipers whose abilities transcend mere marksmanship to become an art form. Able to instantly calculate the trajectory of their shot from seemingly impossible angles, a Vindicare Assassin can loose off a single round, powerful and precise enough to penetrate even powerful force fields, and move on to the next target even before their bullet has found its prey.
This pack contains one multi-part Vindicare Assassin, and is supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base.
This set of forty-three gorgeously-realised cards comprises six large-format cards depicting the Farsight Enclaves Warlord Traits (plus a seventh card explaining their use) and thirty-six Tactical Objective cards, including six unique Farsight Enclaves Tactical Objectives.
Essential for the Cadian collector, this is a set of forty-three gorgeously-realised cards – six Cadian Warlord Trait cards, a seventh card explaining their use, and thirty-six Tactical Objective cards.
Sometimes, a Tech-Priest sees victory as merely the start. Sometimes, a message must be sent – stand in the way of the Cult Mechanicus, and you will be obliterated. Sometimes, a Tech-Priest will call in the Elimination Maniple. Rumbling into view on sinister tracked wheels, lumbering forth on ancient legs, the Kataphron Destroyers and Kastelan Robots that make up this formation are programmed to wipe anything that moves off the map, and then wipe that map completely clean.
Armies will fall, cities will be razed, and mountains will be levelled by their volleys of plasma and grav-cannon fire; there is no moral consideration here, no thought for the agony of the enemy. There is only overkill.
This bundle gives you everything you need to field the Elimination Maniple, a formation found in Codex: Cult Mechanicus. It’s definitely one for the tech-heads amongst you; you’ll receive six Kataphron Battle Servitors, which you can optionally build as Breachers or Destroyers, and two Kastelan Robots, with an attendant Cybernetica Datasmith. Reduce your foe to molten mush!
Battle Maniples are part of the ancient caravan traditions of the Martians – splitting off from the main group to attack from strategically advantageous locations, efficiently flanking the enemy and recording every moment for the betterment of their tactics. Mind-locked to their Onager Dunecrawler leaders, the battle maniple acts with frightening synchronicity.
This awesome box set contains everything you need to field the Battle Maniple formation found in Codex: Skitarii. You get an incredible amount of variety and options with this thirty-three miniature set: a box of ten Skitarii Vanguard, a box of ten Skitarii Rangers, a box of five Sicarian Ruststalkers, a box of five Sicarian Infiltrators, an Onager Dunecrawler and an Ironstrider Ballistarius (which can be optionally built as a Sydonian Dragoon).
Battlegroup Hammerblow $771.50
Appropriately named for their intensely aggressive tactics on Agrellan, Battlegroup Hammerblow were commanded by Colonel Schwarznek – a name associated with a desire for carnage. The Scout Sentinels roamed ahead of their comrades, calling in airborne Scion support at the the first hint of enemy presence. Once the Tau were engaged, the Hammerblow’s collective armoured might poured fire and hate in massive quantities onto the battlefield, damaging the Empire’s advance enough to justify their attrition.
This huge bundle brings you an immediate collection of the Astra Militarum’s finest! You’ll receive a huge number of miniatures – two Cadian Command Squads, two sets of Cadian Shock Troops, three Sentinels, two sets of Militarum Tempestus Scions, three Leman Russ’, four Chimeras, a Valkyrie and a Baneblade! Armour, air support and troops in one package. Includes web exclusive rules*!
*rules are in English only.
Strike Force Cryptus $422
Riptide Wing $255
Ranged Support Cadre $255
Counterstrike Cadre $185
It’s a good weekend of stuff from Games Workshop! Those Ad Mech Maniples are really making want to start another army… I really hope this is a sign of things to come for the OTHER codexes getting updated from GW in the future. I like that the campaigns aren’t JUST for the new book. Marine & AM players have good reasons to be interested in them as well.
My wishlist is getting pretty big – I hope Santa has enough room in his
bank account gift bag to handle it!
