About this deal

And – just as nature intended – whichever combination of the above you choose, one of your Chainsword dudes can swap it out for a mighty, templar-cross-embossed Power Fist. Absolute pain in the arse to assemble compared to the wide range of other, simple sculpts in the box. If you have received a product that has a manufacturing fault, which includes missing items from within a box/blister, then you must notify us of it within 12 months of receipt of your goods. A hobbyist, player, and collector of miniatures and games, Adam's current obsession are his Death Armies for Age of Sigmar, his Blood Angels and Tyranids for 40k, and his ever growing Arkham Horror: The Card Game Collection.

Light the candles, exhume the blessed heroes’ bones, and recite your most holy Imperial catechism, the Black Templars are going to war next week with their incredible new Army Set . Excellent piece of kit for the money and a great way to occupy yourself for the foreseeable future with a value kit that offers fun, fluff, utility, and even a few great long-term picks for the army in the shape of the Redemptor and Marshal (if you're into the sculpt and want to run a "captain" ruleset). These new kits feel a mix of Black Templar style while also being a fusion of Primaris technology along with knightly armour and trinkets. That can be divots in kneepads for tabbards to fit in, or a sword arm having dents for torso detail to fit in.

One particular touch of genius is that the bunched ridge of tabard under the belts on the Primaris Neophytes’ torsos neatly slides into their belt parts (which are attached to the tops of the legs) to ensure you always line the chaps’ top and bottom halves up just right. Black Templars’ Relics are beefed up, and we now get extra ‘mini’ relics, with the Relic Bearers rule, to add even more spice, and tie right into the idea of sprinkling storied, bulked up, knightly characters throughout your army.

com before 8am BST (that’s UK time, but this is the worldwide cut-off point) on Monday the 11th of October.

Like the Beast Snagga Orks and Sisters of Battle army sets before it, it’s a limited edition ‘core’ set to herald the arrival of a completely new (or, as in this case, completely redesigned) Warhammer 40k army, seemingly squarely aimed at long-time enthusiasts who’ve been sitting on unloved old collections for years, waiting on a refresh. It’s a little thing, but highly satisfying for weirdos like me that like the building process almost as much as the painting. It’s a cracking update that makes the Black Templars feel a little more like they’re ‘plugged in’ to the current Warhammer 40k narrative. The tricksy traitors of the Thousand Sons are also advancing inexorably into the new edition of Kill Team with a comprehensive set of rules for a Warpcoven Kill Team, which we gave you a sneak peek of earlier in the week . Above is my favourite piece solely for the image of Helbrecht leading from the center upon the foul Ork foes.

Right up top, let’s acknowledge the biggest disappointment of the lot: you simply don’t get a lot of toy soldiers for your money, compared to ‘bookless’ box sets like GW’s Combat Patrol boxes, or even earlier Army Sets like the Beast Snaggas box, which had 26 models total. As for the model, it’s the same one you know and love from 8th edition, with all the options that entails.GW has kindly provided Wargamer with a free copy to review, and boy, oh boy, there’s a lot to be excited about here – but some surprises and peccadilloes, too, so I’ll break it down for you bit by bit in this review. Batten down the hatches, the Siege of Terra series will witness an assault of epic proportions as the god-machines of the traitorous Legio Mortis and the stalwart Legio Ignatum clash at the Mercury Wall.
