“The new Codex: Chaos Space Marines is bursting with evil, covering all the rules you need to let the galaxy burn. Included are eight subfactions, plus datasheets for 44 units, as well as Relics, Stratagems, Crusade rules, prayers, psychic powers, Marks of Chaos, and other vile articles of blasphemy.”

CSM Combat Patrol


“Which contains 19 veterans of the Long War. Led by a Dark Apostle, who’s accompanied by two cowled Dark Disciples, you also get a squad of 10 Heretic Astartes, five Havocs with a range of deadly heavy weapons, and a Helbrute for some punishing heavy support.”

CSMs Datacards and Dicesets:

“A set of 121 datacards. There are 31 generic faction Stratagems, seven core Stratagems, eight each for six of the Legions, plus four apiece for the Red Corsairs and Creations of Bile. On top of that, you get nine Dark Hereticus discipline psychic powers, six Malefic powers, Smite, and 11 Prayers to the Dark Gods – which have clearly been answered by this pack. Available separately is this set of 20 crimson Chaos Space Marines dice, with the eight-pointed star of Chaos emblazoned on the six face.”

GSC Combat Patrol

“The set contains 32 miniatures, including a Magus, a Goliath Rockgrinder (which can also be built as a Goliath Truck), five Aberrants, five Acolyte Hybrids (which can also be built as Hybrid Metamorphs), and 20 Neophyte Hybrids.”


Horus Heresy Age of Darkness Rulebook

This is the same lavishly illustrated and comprehensive rulebook found in the Age of Darkness boxed set. It’s available in English, French, and German, as a standard hardback rulebook, an ePub, or in a special collector’s edition – artfully finished with bonded leather covers and metal corner protectors.

Mk.VI Tactical Squad

“You get 20 highly posable plastic Astartes armed with bolters and grenades, plus optional bayonets or chain-bayonets. There are also parts to build up to two Sergeants armed with various pistols and close combat weapons, as well as troops equipped with wargear like the nuncio-vox, a Legion vexilla, and augury scanner.”
