This beautifully presented collectors’ edition of Codex: Astra Militarum is finished with a soft touch full-art cover, silver foil blocking, and a black ribbon page marker. This book is a limited print run, and is only available while stocks last.
The Astra Militarum is the largest cohesive fighting force in the galaxy. Fed by a constant tithe of soldiers raised from hundreds of thousand of worlds, its regiments form the vast bulk of Humanity’s martial power. On countless worlds, the mortal soldiers of the Astra Militarum march in their billions to war, lasguns and bayonets readied to face any foe.
Batteries of heavy artillery fling innumerable tons of ordnance at the oncoming enemy, spearheads of heavily armoured tanks grind forward unstoppably, cannons roaring, cavalry squadrons mount swift counter-charges on the flanks, while squads of elite operatives descend from gunships on missions of vital importance. Meanwhile, officers add their shouted orders to the great cacophony of war, exhorting their troops to fight all the harder. Wielded with the appropriate will, the Astra Militarum will pulverise whatever stands between them and victory.
This book is an essential guide for aspiring generals of the Astra Militarum. Inside these pages, you’ll find all the rules you need to play an Imperial Guard army – including its many subdivisions and legendary regiments – along with a long honour roll and history of duty and sacrifice, epic art that conveys the incredible scale of these armies, and loads more.

The Astra Militarum fight in every system of every corner of the galaxy – a meat-grinder that fights on no matter the cost or the odds. Talking of odds, this set of Astra Militarum-themed dice bears the colours of the Imperial Guard – and a grunt can use all the luck they can get…
This set includes 15 six-sided dice measuring 16mm along each edge. They are cast in a metallic green with pearlised swirls, featuring gold-coloured pips and the winged skull of the Astra Militarum on each 6 face.
Cadia’s officer class are exceptional leaders, serving in perhaps the Imperium’s most outstanding regiments. Trained to be the very best and surrounded by a cadre of hand-picked guards and aides, these uncompromising veterans expect no less from the troops under their command. Some are as inspiring as the regimental standards carried in their wake, while others are as motivational as the curt orders issued by their vox operators.
This multipart plastic kit builds a Cadian Command Squad, made up of a Cadian Commander and four Veteran Guardsmen. The Cadian Commander is armed with your choice of a laspistol, bolt pistol, or plasma pistol in one hand, and a chainsword, power sword, or power fist for the other. Each of the accompanying Veterans is equipped differently – one field medic with a lasgun and medi-pack, one vox operator with a laspistol and master vox system, one bodyguard with a laspistol and your choice of chainsword, power sword, or power fist, and one standard bearer carrying a lasgun alongside a regimental standard. The bodyguard and banner bearer can each instead be built as weapons specialists, armed with your choice of a flamer, grenade launcher, meltagun, or plasma gun.
The kit includes even more cosmetic choices to make your Command Squad stand out, like magnoculars, slung and stowed weapons, three finials for the regimental standard, and loads of different head and basing options than can be mixed and matched around the squad – enough to ensure that each Command Squad in your army looks like the unique veterans they are.
This kit comprises 123 plastic components, and is supplied with 5x Citadel 28.5mm Round Bases. Also included is an Astra Militarum Infantry Transfer Sheet, with 597 transfers featuring numerals, squad markings, and Cadian regimental heraldry. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Born soldiers, the Shock Troops of Cadia are trained for military service from the moment they can hold a rifle. Long years of rigorous firing drills have forged them into expert sharpshooters, skilled in both dogged defence and storming assault. Cadian Shock Troops are held by many as the ideal Imperial soldiers – with countless regiments mustered in their image.
This multipart plastic kit builds 10 Cadian Shock Troops – the core of many Astra Militarum regiments. Each Shock Trooper is armed with frag grenades and a reliable lasgun, led by a Sergeant armed with either a drum-fed autogun, or a chainsword with a laspistol or bolt pistol. The kit also includes a variety of special weapons to equip your Shock Troopers – a flamer, grenade launcher, meltagun, and plasma gun – as well as a vox-caster for battlefield communications.
You’ll also find loads of cosmetic options to ensure that no two squads of Shock Troops look the same – including variant poses, more than 20 different heads, sandbags, combat knives, a spade, a spare helmet, and plenty of bedrolls.
This kit comprises 131 plastic components, and is supplied with 10x Citadel 25mm Round Bases. Also included is a Cadian Infantry Transfer Sheet, with 597 transfers featuring numerals, squad markings, and Cadian regimental heraldry. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
While massed infantry can overwhelm the foe, it often falls to Heavy Weapons Squads to deliver the killing blow. These teams of gun crews swiftly set up their mobile heavy weapons as their comrades advance, providing the firepower to bolster battle lines. With access to an arsenal of portable armaments, they can offer close fire support with adaptable loadouts of precise – or indiscriminate – firepower.
This multipart plastic kit builds three Heavy Weapons Teams – paired infantry soldiers crewing a portable gun. Each team can be armed with your choice of a heavy bolter, missile launcher, mortar, autocannon, or lascannon. The kit includes plenty of cosmetic options to mix things up – extra ammo, seven different heads, a variety of poses, and equipment such as vox-sets and magnoculars for spotters and loaders – so no two teams ever need look alike. These teams can be fielded together as Heavy Weapons Squads, or combined with the Cadian Shock Troops kit to form Infantry Squads with attached Heavy Weapons Teams.
This kit comprises 127 plastic components, and is supplied with 3x Citadel 50mm Round Bases. Also included is an Astra Militarum Infantry Transfer Sheet, with 597 transfers featuring numerals, squad markings, and Cadian regimental heraldry. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Ordnance Teams crew some of the largest human-portable weapons fielded by the Astra Militarum. From bombast field guns that lob heavy shells over buildings and intervening squads, to the barrage of warheads fired from malleus rocket launchers, or the searing energy lances unleashed by heavy lascannons, these Field Ordnance Batteries are powerful assets to any general.
This multipart plastic kit builds two Ordnance Teams – mobile artillery platforms which together form a Field Ordnance Battery. Each Ordnance Team features a gunner and two spotters or loaders, crewing your choice of heavy gun – a wide-saturation malleus rocket launcher, indirect-firing bombast field gun, or vehicle-pounding heavy lascannon. The spotters and loaders are also armed with lasguns and frag grenades. The crew members can be mixed up with a variety of cosmetic options, including a choice of twelve different heads and a variety of arms, ammunition, poses, and accessories. You can also build each kit as though it’s being stowed, with no gunner on the seat.
This kit comprises 154 plastic components and is supplied with 2x Citadel 100mm Round Bases. Also included is an Astra Militarum Vehicle Transfer Sheet, with 475 transfers featuring numerals, sigils, and a variety of regimental heraldry. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
The Rogal Dorn Battle Tank is a lumbering behemoth, equally suited to anchoring a battle line, or grinding forward in support of an assault. Bristling with thunderous guns, these hulking armoured fighting vehicles pound breaches in enemy’s defences with enormous shells, and tear apart infantry with raucous storms of fire.
This multipart plastic kit builds a Rogal Dorn Battle Tank – a mobile gun platform even larger than the mighty Leman Russ Battle Tank. The Rogal Dorn’s primary weapon is mounted on its turret – you can choose between the high volume fire of a twin battle cannon, or the intimidating power of an oppressor cannon with a co-axial autocannon mounted on its side. A secondary hard point on the hull mounts either a castigator gatling cannon to punish hordes of infantry, or a pulveriser cannon to take on enemy armour.
The kit includes an arsenal of optional weaponry – you can add optional sponson mounts armed with a pair of heavy bolters or multi-meltas, while optional forward mounts can house heavy stubbers or meltaguns. The tank’s tracks can be upgraded with additional armour, and you’ll also find extensive cosmetic options, including tow hooks, viewing slits, extra fuel, a search light, and stowed equipment. There are three crew members, including a spotter, tank officer, and a gunner for the pintle-mounted heavy stubber, which can be built with five head options or replaced with closed hatches.
This kit comprises 171 plastic components and includes an Astra Militarum Vehicle Transfer Sheet, with 475 transfers featuring numerals, sigils, and a variety of regimental heraldry. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Sentinels are all-terrain bipedal vehicles, employed by the Astra Militarum to patrol rough ground or deploy rapid-response firepower. Armoured Sentinels are modified with extra protective panelling, making them superb front-line hunters. Carrying deadly heavy weapons into warzones too dense for battle tanks, these mobile hunter-killers excel in destroying vehicles, fortified bunkers, and xenos monstrosities.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Armoured Sentinel – a light walker toting heavy firepower on an sturdy frame. There are loads of options in the kit, allowing you to arm your Sentinel for any battlefield role with an autocannon, heavy flamer, missile launcher, multi-laser, or plasma cannon. You can additionally equip your walker with a poseable Sentinel chainsaw for more melee punch, and a hunter-killer missile for extra firepower. You’ll also find plenty of cosmetic options, including a searchlight and smoke launchers, stowage and spare equipment racks, and extra fuel canisters.
This kit can alternatively build a Scout Sentinel with an open cockpit, which trades durability for extra speed in warzones where mobility is essential.
This kit comprises 91 plastic components and is supplied with 1x Citadel 80mm Round Base. Also included is an Astra Militarum Vehicle Transfer Sheet, with 475 transfers featuring numerals, sigils, and a variety of regimental heraldry. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Arcadian Leontus is the Lord Commander Solar of the Astra Militarum, wielding vast armies against apocalyptic invasions, sector-wide insurgencies, and even distant campaigns beyond the Segmentum Solar. A master tactician and peerless scholar of military history, he is guided in his strategic decisions by an entourage of seers, advisors, and priests. On the battlefield, the Lord Solar strikes a figure akin to the heroes of old atop his cybernetic stallion, Konstantin. Levelling his blade at the foe, Leontus bellows orders that see the dutiful soldiers of the Imperial Guard achieve victory after victory.
This multipart plastic kit builds Lord Solar Leontus – a supreme commander of the Astra Militarum, riding his heavily-augmented steed Konstantin. Stood atop the wreckage of a fallen Titan, the Lord Solar proudly brandishes his relic power sword, Conquest, with his arcane pistol – dubbed Sol’s Righteous Gaze – holstered at his side. His commanding pose is further accented by his flowing cape and exquisite armour. The kit includes a choice of two heads – one with a stoic expression and closed mouth, the other bellowing orders to his troops, both clad in an impressive helm with a solar halo. If you’re looking for a truly impressive centrepiece for your Astra Militarum collection, look no further – Lord Solar Leontus is as high-ranking an officer as you’ll find.
This kit comprises 36 plastic components and is supplied with 1x Citadel 80mm Round Base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
