The Adeptus Mechanicus Codex is up for Pre-order along with all the special editions!
via Games Workshop
The Adeptus Mechanicus are the keepers and manufacturers of technology for the Imperium of Mankind. It is a role they guard jealously, using their own standing armies, engines of war and god-machines. It is within their power to unleash the most arcane weaponry in the Imperium, and they do so without mercy. Grim processions of soldiers stride in perfect unison, each one a disturbing fusion of man and machine. Behind them stomp soulless automata, and towering over them are enormous walkers. An Adeptus Mechanicus army marching to war is a sight both terrifying and glorious.

Belisarius Cawl $55
Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl was already old at the dawn of the Imperium, over ten thousand years ago. During that span of ages the Tech-Priest has served as a Forge Lord, a Lexico Arcanus and a renowned Magos Biologis. On the battlefield Cawl is a force to be reckoned with, fearlessly scuttling into the thick of the fighting, assessing threats and broadcasting carefully planned orders to his troops. Most enemy fire is thwarted by his force field; however even when parts of his mechanised body are blown off, cables snake out in a whir of activity to effect immediate repairs, or swarm anything that dares comes close…
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Belisarius Cawl, Prime Conduit of the Omnissiah. Towering over his Adeptus Mechanicus brethren, he stands much taller than even other favoured Tech-Priests of the Omnissiah, with countless augmentations distorting his barely-human frame. He carries an Omnissian axe, which acts as a convenient mounting point for an array of sensors and his voice broadcasting unit, and an arc scourge – this arcane energy weapon is covered in cables, sensors and extra appendages. This theme of augmentation is continued throughout – Cawl’s robes are not-quite covering a massive amount of robotic extensions, with several extra legs, prehensile arms and cables dragging along behind him. A scryerskull hovers above, and there are several symbols of the Machine God dotted about the miniature.
Belisarius Cawl comes as 42 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 105mm x 70mm Oval base.
The Pale Harvestmen; the Scythes of Nurgle; the Eyes of Mortarion. The elite warriors of the Deathshroud go by many names, and every one is redolent with a miasma of fear and menace. Swollen with unnatural power, the Deathshroud tower over their enemies. Rusted gauntlets and squirming tentacles clutch huge battle scythes known as manreapers, cursed weapons that slice heads from shoulders and limbs from torsos with every swing. Clouds of plague flies boil around the Deathshroud, while vile smog spills from vents in their armour to choke and blind their foes.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 3 Deathshroud Bodyguard. Impressively large and dense, covered in rot, decay, tentacles and horror, these models exemplify the corrupting gift that Nurgle imparts. Each is armed with a manreaper – a large scythe, pitted and pockmarked with rust and disease, it stands even taller than the Deathshroud who brandish it – and a plaguespurter gauntlet, used to squirt unpleasant maladies at the unfortunate. Each of the three is bedecked with Nurgle symbolism, found in the rust, boils and chips in their armour, through which vile tentacled and bloated flesh poke, barely covered by ragged cloaks. there are 7 variant heads included, a mix of helmeted and bare, and an extra plaguespurter gauntlet – this is for an optional unit Champion, who has the option of wielding two of these.
The Deathshroud Bodyguard come as 51 components, and are supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
