Three quick GW Announcements: Ad-Mech Preorders soon, Deathshroud Rules, and the Paint App.

Exactly what it says on the tin, folks. The Ad-Mech Codex will be up for pre-order next week, so you can expect a veritable dissection of those robobuddies and their rules before too long.

Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus is the most complete guide to the servants of the Machine God we’ve ever released, covering rules as well as background of the different sects of this mysterious cult. Inside, you’ll find datasheets for the Cult Mechanicus, Skitarii, and for the first time, Questor Mechanicus Knights, as well as new Stratagems, Warlord Traits, and Relics. There are also rules for 7 forge worlds, including classics like Mars as well as more niche factions like Agripinaa and Stygies VIII – we’ll be taking a look at the powerful unique abilities for each in detailed previews next week.

But you probably want to know about the hideous servants of Chaos, rather than the beautiful, perfect robobabes of the Ad-Mech.

Well you’ll have to wait a little more. Because accompanying the Codex is the sexiest roboboy in the setting, debuting his solo album: Bellisarius Cawl (me maybe).

Okay, you’ve been patient enough. Here are your diseasefriends.


Deathshroud Terminators keep their role from the Horus Heresy, acting as a heavily armoured bodyguard to your characters. Armed with toxic plaguespurt gauntlets, and deadly Manreapers, these guys are dangerous to infantry, tanks, and monsters alike, with 3 Strength 8 attacks in melee, each at AP -3 and dealing D3 damage apiece! Armed in Cataphractii Terminator Armour, the Deathshroud are very hard to kill, with Toughness 5, Disgustingly Resilient, a 2+ save and 2 Wounds. This durability makes them perfect for accompanying your key characters into war, as they’re capable of intercepting hits, even in melee!

Finally, we have the paint app and its accompanying contest:

Finally, next week will see the arrival of the much-awaited Citadel Paint app! This app is your free pocket guide to the Citadel Paint system, and to celebrate it coming out, there’s afabulous prize draw. Entering is simple – just download the app when it comes out, and you could be one of our five lucky winners, receiving every single Citadel Base, Shade and Layer paint. Make sure to download early; there’ll be a draw everyday from Monday to Friday the week after the app comes out, meaning the sooner you download the app the more chances you’ll have to win!


So there you go. Look for the Death shroud on the 16th of September.

You used to Bellisarius Cawl me on my voxcaster.
