True to form the new releases from Games Workshop are now out and about on their webstore with both Shield of Baal: Leviathan and some more Tyranids monsters in the form of the Zoanthropes and Venomthropes making themselves known…
Shield of Baal: Leviathan is the new campaign book that we’ve already mentioned when talking about the leaks. It will contain two books filled with rules, scenarios and background on the Hive Fleet and it’s attack on the shield worlds. Despite the name Baal being in the title there are no Blood Angels to speak of, instead being replaced with Astra Militarum, Militarum Tempestus and Sisters of Battle holding the fort.
Zoanthropes and Venomthropes making up the contingent of dark nasty things coming out for the Tyranids and supplementing this assault on the worlds of the Imperium. I actually don’t mind both of these since the new look isn’t too jarring for me. I would have potentially liked the miniatures to be less ‘all tentacles’ and with a bit more substance and beef to them but you can’t have everything. I’ll keep to Carnifexes and such for that!
There’s also a lot of extra stuff for you to have a look at for the holiday season if you so desire. Especially if you like Warhammer 40,000 to be honest. As well as the Dark Vengeance Starter Bundle there is also the return of the Ultimate Paint Set, a new Citadel Project Bundle and even a special edition Carry Case.
Anything you have your eye on?
