About this deal

It states that, “ Space marine siege mantlets must be modelled appropriately with a large shield of some kind,” and that warms my heart.

Created by the Emperor himself from the genetic material of his demigod Primarch sons, the Adeptus Astartes are the ultimate soldiers for a cruel and terrible age – unrivalled in storming the claustrophic corridors of a space hulk, or seizing control of hostile ships in frenetic boarding actions.Also, I wanted my Assault Intercessors in an Impulsor, so I picked up one of those and sold five of the Intercessors, leaving me with a squad of five that would fit inside the transport. Not everything was needed though – I sold the Captain in Gravis Armour, for example, as I felt he did not quite have the right ‘robe count’ for a senior Dark Angel (and I am hoping for more Dark Angels officers in the range refresh later this year). The Boarding Patrol - Chaos Space Marines from the Warhammer 40k range is the ideal place to start building your Chaos Space Marines collection - giving you a great selection of the most important units for your army.

Now he won’t stop talking about ‘speedsoft’ and made the Chief Techmarine weep after showing him his ‘sick mod’. Succubi are skilled duelists, making them a perfect leader for the close confines of a Boarding Action. My interest ignited while playing Dawn of War at age ten (let’s not discuss the parenting that led to this). It is our mission to bring you the latest from the miniature wargaming scene, from narrative missions, hobby how-to tutorials, battle reports, unboxings and reviews, retro flashbacks, news, rumors, and more. In the brand new Boarding Actions format, compact armies battle through cramped corridors and treacherous corners.Chaos Daemons have – appropriately, given the arrival of Angron – manifested as a huffing and slavering crash of Khornate nightmares.

Beyond that, I’ve got the Phobos Strike Team kit coming in for its Infiltrators and a lot of building to do. He’s joined by a bodyguard of three Deathshroud Terminators, as well as 10 versatile Plague Marines – three of which are taken from the much-sought-after Plague Marine Reinforcements set. If you need points shave off 10 cultists and add wargear or upgrade the Sorcerer to Terminator Armour. The main Assault Intercessors set (as opposed to the quick-to-build ones I did earlier) give all the options needed for the Sergeant, so he goes into battle with a Plasma Pistol and Thunder Hammer, giving the squad some needed punch when they leap out of the Impulsor. They command 20 Wyches, acrobatic murderers who no-one wants to get stuck in a room with, and have also hired five Incubi – heavily-armoured shock troopers who can clear out whole gangways with their razor-sharp demiklaives.It contains a whopping 20 Imperial Navy Breachers, who can be built as a variety of specialists and gunners, or with a standard combat shotgun and hatchet. Accompanying the Captain are 10 Assault Intercessors, each wielding a chainsword and heavy bolt pistol. I dislike the rounded, stubby proportions of Gravis armour, and I felt that shields would be a viable alternative in close-confines. A heady mix of daemonic power and debased Astartes ceramite, this Battleforce is the ideal way to throw in your lot with the Warmaster and start scouring the galaxy for the keys to victory. This is hard-hitting force includes three Crisis Battlesuits and a squad of 10 Fire Warriors, who are perfectly suited for close-quarters combat when assembled as a Breacher Team.

If you want an indicator of where I stand next to these grognards, my first starter set was Dark Imperium. Bloodletters and 10 Flesh Hounds are led by Khorne’s favourite hunter – Karanak, the Hound of Vengeance. Making every model special to me is important, because they spend the majority of their time on my display shelf. So, if you need every single model inside and haven’t picked up Crowe yet, it will save you some cash. Whether navigating the treacherous confines of a space hulk or engaging in intense boarding actions, Space Marines are unparalleled in their skill and versatility.

These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
