Imperium Nihilus: Vigilus Ablaze Collector’s Edition $80

 

There are 1300 copies of the Collector’s Edition of the Imperium Nihilus: Vigilus Ablaze book available. Each book is beautifully presented in a soft-touch slipcase featuring the starfield of the Vigilus system. The book features a black ribbon marker and gilt page edges in a silvery blue. The front and back of each book also features a wraparound piece of art with soft-touch finish, and a spine that is overlaid with black cloth featuring the name of the book.`

Abaddon the Despoiler $60

Striding onto the battlefield like a demigod of war, the Despoiler scowls at the mortal chattel before him. He is an ender of worlds, a destroyer of hope, a bane unto the galaxy itself. Yet he is not beyond the siren call of battle, and leads his Black Legion to acts of pitiless slaughter whenever a worthy foe is near.

Abaddon the Despoiler is the ultimate Chaos character. Terrifyingly capable on the battlefield, he’ll transform any army of Chaos Space Marines into a deadlier fighting force, either by causing carnage on the front lines or lending invaluable aura abilities to nearby troops.

This kit brings Abaddon to life in magnificent detail, drawing on three decades of art and lore to create a definitive representation of this iconic character. No detail has been spared – with baroque armour, intricate mechanical detail and grisly trophies, it’s a pleasure to paint and will immediately stand out from the rest of your collection. Even the base has a wealth of sculpted detail to help show Abaddon in all his dark glory!

You’ll even be able to customise your Abaddon with optional extras. You can model yours with or without the cape depending on your preference, while a choice of three heads is provided to ensure that your model fits your interpretation of the Warmaster. One features Abaddon’s classic grimace, another bears the likeness of Horus, while the last features an ominous rebreather.

This kit is supplied in 31 plastic components, and comes with a 60mm round base.

Chaos Space Marines $60

Not even the Space Marines are safe from the lure of Chaos. Whether they hail from the dark days of the Horus Heresy or turned traitor more recently, these baleful warriors combine their gene-given gifts with dark blessings and malefic sorceries, transformed by years of battle into fearless, superhuman reavers.

Chaos Space Marines are the core of any Chaos army. Equally at home shredding opponents at range with bolter fire as they are in bloody melee, these guys can be geared up for pretty much any purpose you want on the battlefield. Combined with your choice of Marks of Chaos, Chaos Icons and deadly weaponry, they’ve got a place in any of your army lists.

This kit builds 10 Chaos Space Marines, with your choice of weapons. The set is absolutely packed with optional extras, giving you the choice of arming every member of the squad with close-combat weapons and pistols or ranged wargear. You’ll be able to add your choice of plasma gun, flamer, meltagun, heavy bolter and missile launcher. Optional components let you build up to two Aspiring Champions, giving you the freedom to build the set as a single squad of 10 or two squads of 5. A Chaos icon, interchangeable components and optional grenades offer you even more choice, ensuring no two units need look alike. The set is even designed to be compatible with the Havocs, allowing you to mix and match heavy weapons for even more choice.

This set is supplied in 144 plastic components and contains 10 x 32mm round bases.

Noctilith Crown $50

Noctilith Crowns are brutal edifices raised up by the Chaos Space Marines to weaken the very foundations of reality. Crafted from the mysterious material known as blackstone, these vast psychic resonators thin the veil to deadly effect.

The Noctilith Crown is a dedicated Fortification for your Chaos army. Protecting your troops with a shield of energy, it’ll make long-ranged warriors like Havocs and Obliterators incredibly difficult to displace. Chaos Psykers, like your Sorcerers or allied Daemons, will be able to re-roll failed Psychic tests, allowing you to master the Psychic phase, while your foes will have to worry about an increased risk of suffering Perils of the Warp!

This kit builds one Noctilith Crown. A towering structure, it’s an incredible piece for tying your collection together, featuring the same techno-baroque aesthetic shared by the rest of the Chaos Space Marines. Use yours as a Fortification in your games, or grab several kits to build terrifying, Chaos-themed battlefields.

This kit is supplied 24 plastic components.

War continues to ravage the sentinel world of Vigilus, yet the fighting is about to escalate to a whole new level.
