The Talons of the Emperor are getting a new boxed set for Warhammer 40,000 – Custodes & Sister of Silence strike!

Here comes the Adeptus Custodes and Sisters of Silence in a brand new boxed set for Warhammer 40k! Now, they have rules already but it appears that Games Workshop is repackaging them into a new boxed set with some additional goodies.

“Clad in baroque, golden artificer armour and armed with priceless relic weaponry, the Talons of the Emperor are joining the battlefields of the 41st Millennium.

Rules for using the elite Adeptus Custodes, Sisters of Silence, their vehicles and two brand new detachments (one each) in your games of Warhammer 40,000 will be available very soon, both in this box set and as separate digital downloads.”


From the looks of the contents, it’s pretty safe to assume these are reboxings of the Sprues from Burning of Prospero:



But what else is interesting from the picture above is that they are going to get a couple of transport vehicles, a Contemptor, and what appears to be a couple of “mini” Codexes, too. I’m curious if there will be a “Formation” for the contents so that folks will be able to run them as an ally or starter army right out of the box. This seems like a larger kit than one of the Start Collecting boxes – anyone want to take a stab at the price-point?


The Talons of the Emperor are going on the offensive! Are you ready for them?
