Scarab Occult, Rubrics & Tzaangor: Unboxed

4 Minute Read
Dec 4 2016


Are these the BEST Chaos miniatures ever?  Take a look at the three new Tzeentch boxes of infantry in all their Chaotic warp infused glory!

First we will take a look at the Tzaangors. These are considered the more expendable foot troops of the Tzeentch army. They are very similar styling to the models that come in the Silver Tower kit. There are many bits included for this kit, leaving it open for a lot of customization. Don’t overlook the Age of Sigmar bits the 40k instructions don’t even talk about like shields, great axes and more. I would suspect we’ll be seeing more of this kit in a future AoS release for sure.


Next we take a look at the Scarab Occult Terminators. This is the very first cult terminators to be produced in plastic. There are two sprues in the box with head options as well as a couple of more options but there really isn’t too much that can be customized with this kit, just using the bits that come in the kit.


Last we take a look at the Rubric Marines. These guys are pretty much like the Space Marines we are used to except they are in the Thousand Sons style and let’s just face it…They look great as well!


Tzaangors: $45


Tzaangors are bright of colouration and sharp of intellect. Their beaks clack as they chant blasphemous refrains in their dark tongues, gimlet eyes glowing in their aquiline skulls. They look to transcend their existences by seeking out the most powerful artefacts and priceless relics – in serving sorcerous masters, they may earn the chance to elevate themselves. However, a cruel streak resides within the soul of every Tzaangor, and their artistic pretensions are often set aside in favour of sheer, shocking brutality.


This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble 10 Tzaangors, armed with either 2 close combat weapons or an autopistol and chainsword. One model can be assembled as a Twistbray, with his own head options. Supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Rubric Marines: $50


Stepping out from the fog of war come the Rubricae. Many of these undying warriors were psykers in their own right, before an ancient curse damned them to an eternity as living husks – their baroque power armour now contains nothing but sparkling dust. In battle, a malevolent witch-light crackles around the eyes of these traitor Space Marines as they open fire on those they would have once called brothers. Their infernal weaponry spits plumes of warpfire into the ranks of the foe, flesh and molten armour exploding in all directions as salvo after salvo hits home.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to assemble 10 Rubric Marines, armed with either Inferno boltguns or warpflamers. One model can be armed with a soulreaper cannon, one can carry an Icon of Flame, and one can be assembled as an Aspiring Sorcerer, who is armed with a force stave and either an Inferno bolt pistol or warpflame pistol. Supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Scarab Occult Terminators: $60


Scarab Occult Terminators were once the finest psykers in the Thousand Sons Legion, bodyguards to Magnus the Red himself. Reduced to dust along with their brethren, they now possess only an echo of their previous intellect. They stride into battle at the behest of their sorcerous masters, advancing with an eerie, stoic calm; clad in ornate armour, they bear down on the foe in near-silence until their weaponry is unleashed. Then, the sickening sound of khopesh blades and Inferno combi-bolters tearing into flesh rings out, delivering death to those who insult the warriors of Prospero with their resistance.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Scarab Occult Terminators, armed with Inferno combi-bolters and khopesh blades. One model can be assembled with an included heavy warpflamer, soulreaper cannon or hellfyre missile rack. One model can be assembled as a Scarab Occult Sorcerer, who can exchange his combi-bolter for an included power sword. Supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
