Games Workshop Unleash New Space Marine Codex & Battleforces

June 6, 2015 by brennon

Games Workshop will be bringing some new Space Marine stuff to the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop including new Battleforces, a Codex, a Limited Edition Codex Set and a brand new Devastator Squad

Salamanders Codex


The first set of releases to take a look at include the new Battleforces for the Blood Angels, Ultramarines, and Dark Angels. Both the Blood Angel and Ultramarine sets come with similar squads plus a Dreadnought while the Dark Angels one includes a Ravenwing force on bikes.

Dark Angel Battleforce

I think these are quite neat sets giving you the basics of what you need to get playing in the game and bolstering an existing army. Hopefully we’ll see more pop up for the other big Chapters as things progress. Black Templars for the win!

Codex Time

The big boys in Power Armour are getting a new Codex too which comes in the usual flavours. Not only do you have the Standard Codex with some nice cover art but also the Limited Edition version with additional artwork and some lovely bits and pieces to make it more of a coffee table book than anything else…

Which of these Codices are you going to pick up when it comes to grabbing the rules for the new Space Marines?

Bring It Down!

When it comes to destroying armour and monsters you can’t go too far wrong with a Devastator Squad. Featuring some very, very, very cool leg armour from past editions they seem perfectly suited to firing their heavy weapons.

Devastator Squad

I think this is a great squad with all the weapons you’d expect including a Missile Launcher, Lascannon, Plasma Cannon, Grav Cannon, Heavy Bolter and a Sergeant of course.

Will you be getting these new Space Marines?
