In a recent announcement, Games Workshop revealed several pre-orders, which included new Boarding Patrol sets, new Necromunda lore and models associated with the next chapter of the Aranthian Succession, and the new line of Lord of the Rings models.
With the much-anticipated arrival of Warhammer’s 10th Edition, it was not surprising that the Boarding Patrol sets got the most attention, especially considering the fact they will be dedicated to The Adepta Sororitas, the Thousand Sons and fan-favorite faction The Adeptus Custodes.
New Boarding Patrols Bring the Value
Boarding Patrol: Adeptus Custodes includes the following:
- 1x Captain-General Trajann Valoris – the famed warrior said to be the greatest to hold this esteemed title
- 3x Allarus Custodians, two of which can either be built as a Shield-Captain or Vexilus Praetor in Allarus Terminator Armour
- 5x Custodian Guard, two of which can either be built as a Shield-Captain or Vexilus Praetor
This Boarding Patrol is all about leading an elite Adeptus Custodes force, perfectly suited for the deadly Boarding Action missions detailed in the Arks of Omen series or growing an army. It is also a great money saver, as the individual models do end up costing more.
Boarding Patrol: Thousand Sons includes the following:
- 20x Rubric Marines, two of which are Aspiring Sorcerers able to bolster squads
- 2x Chaos Spawn
This is a more straightforward Boarding Patrol set that is nevertheless perfectly suited for its intended task – boarding and destruction. The Chaos Spawn, with their deadly speed and strength, is no joke. Once again, the box set will cost less than buying the models individually.
And finally, Boarding Patrol: Adepta Sororitas includes the following:
- 1x Canoness
- 5x Celestian Sacresants
- 1x Repentia Superior
- 9x Sisters Repentia
- 10x Battle Sisters, which can also be built as Dominions and Celestians, plus 1x Incensor Cherub
This set is quite the pleasant surprise, and one of the larger ones out there, consisting of 26 models, a great jumping-off point for either building an army or jumping straight to a Boarding Patrol game. Following the value pack theme, this is another money saver – building it from individual models costs more.
Necromunda Gets New Lore, Models, and Tactic Cards
In Necromunda, apart from continuing the storyline, the next chapter of the Aranthian Succession – The Vaults of Temenos – will include new rules for the Palanite Enforcer gangs, vehicle gang tactics for The Scabs of Cawdor and House Cawdor.
Additionally, new awesome Enforcer ‘Sanctioner’ Pattern Automata and Cawdor Ridge Walker models will be released.
Necromunda will also benefit from the 10th Edition’s streamlining, most notably with the inclusion of Cawdor Vehicle Gang Tactics Cards.
Gondorians™ Rejoice – New Models Are up for Pre-order
And finally, Lord of the Rings enthusiasts will be pleased with the addition of the new Gondor models, which include: the Middle-Earth™ – Gondor™ Settlement; the Gondor™ Mansion, the Gondor™ Tower, and the Gondor™ Ruins.
