About this deal

Will you be picking up any of the new Boarding Patrol boxes, and what do you think of the value inside? However, if you wanted those Plague Marines in your army, this is an excellent box in terms of value.

That is, making the force yours by flavoring them with lore, names, and conversion pizazz to make them stand out. A devout Canoness leads five Celestian Sacresants, 10 Sisters Repentia, and 10 Battle Sisters into the breach, making this a durable fighting force with plenty of power armour and some chainsword punch. If you need points shave off 10 cultists and add wargear or upgrade the Sorcerer to Terminator Armour.

Ahead of them all, a rabid mob of 20 Chaos Cultists floods the passages of enemy vessels, clogging the foe's guns with each reckless charge. The Adeptus Mechanicus bring a flexible force of 10 Skitarii, who can be built as Rangers or Vanguard, backed up by three hulking Kataphrons, which can be built as Destroyers or the appropriately-named Breachers. Sign up for the Warhammer Community newsletter to find out when these boxed sets are heading to release, and get ready to battle for the galaxy’s fate in the latest season of Matched Play. The backbone of this Boarding Patrol are 10 Necron Warriors, a hard-to-shift line of self-reviving metal skeletons.

Meanwhile, eight fast-moving Genestealers – fielded as a squad of five – act as an insidious vanguard to a towering Broodlord. It states that, “ Space marine siege mantlets must be modelled appropriately with a large shield of some kind,” and that warms my heart. Everyone has a different approach, but I tailor my thematic lists with an eye toward how I think my force would operate. Lead from the front with a powerful Captain in Gravis Armour wielding a boltstorm gauntlet and a choice of fearsome melee weapons – ideal for contesting the confines of an enemy vessel. 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.I think he’s a perfect Captain, Lieutenant or other veteran character and it’s time to do him justice. So, if you need every single model inside and haven’t picked up Crowe yet, it will save you some cash. The Desolation Squads I will probably be selling, but not necessarily for the reasons you might think – more on that in a couple of weeks or so when they are all painted up.

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. Three Ophydian Destroyers add a lightning-fast melee threat to the mix, accompanied by their Canoptek Plasmacyte. I’ve omitted the word Winter from the challenge’s name because I reside in the Southern Hemisphere and I’m writing this in a record heatwave.Leading this formidable force is a Captain in Gravis Armour, an imposing figure armed with a boltstorm gauntlet and a choice of brutal melee weapons – perfectly suited for dominating the tight corridors of enemy vessels.

Within this box, the notorious Black Legion, led by the formidable Warmaster Abaddon, demonstrates their unmatched prowess in the galaxy. I dislike the rounded, stubby proportions of Gravis armour, and I felt that shields would be a viable alternative in close-confines. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).This one is strange because a lot of the value comes from the Plague Marines, and considering the reinforcements box is so expensive for three minis; it’s hard to say. These fervent followers add to the thematic chaos, showcasing the legion’s ability to overwhelm their enemies through sheer numbers and zeal.
