Games Workshop’s new Astra Militarum is getting it’s codex next week and in addition to that and the Order Cards they have put the Wyvern and Hydra up as well. See what you think of some of their new collections.
First up is of course the Codex for the newly revamped Astra Militarum followed by the Order Cards that you’ll be using to make sure your Guardsmen do exactly what you want them to do. I’m quite a fan of the artwork for the cover and the Order Cards have a nice look to them too much like their Psychic Power Cards have always done.
One of the surprising additions was this combined pack of Cadian Armour Fist soldiers alongside their ride, a trusty Chimera. At the price it’s set at this isn’t actually that bad a buy in my opinion (although I’m sure some people will disagree) but it does essentially make the right team you need with no fuss.
Of course you also have the Wyvern and Hydra that we mentioned earlier which will be used for taking down aerial units and infantry. Both fine looking tanks and a great step in the right direction away from those strange Taurox vehicles the Militarum Tempestus have.
Last but not least we have a sneaky peek of an upcoming miniature. It looks to be another one of their plastic clamp packs and features the new Commissar with plasma pistol and power sword. Once again this isn’t a bad model at all and somewhat mirrors the look of the Commissar on the front cover.
Will you be starting up an Astra Militarum army?
