Games Workshop seem to have found an old Latin schoolbook somewhere and are using it to name the new Imperial Guard. What do you make of the rumours we’ve seen coming out of Bell of Lost Souls and elsewhere surrounding the Astra Militarum and Militarum Tempestus.
The first image we’re taking a look at is the Astra Militarum Codex cover which I believe is going to be the new name for the Imperial Guard as a whole. It certainly seems like it, using the solo figure on the cover and I imagine this will cover everything Imperials want to use on the tabletop.
It seems as if the Imperial Guard are also going to be getting their hands on an online only codex as well which allows you to run an entire detachment made up of the Militarum Tempestus (or Storm Troopers to you and I). Let’s take a closer look at those miniatures…
Above we have the rather interesting looking Taurox and some of the Scions for the Tempestus arm of the Imperial Guard. I actually quite like that big truck they have on the cards, it reminds me of something from Judge Dredd. Alongside that the Scions are pretty epic too and it’s certainly a massive step up when it comes to the look of the Imperial Guard troops.
I think we’re in for a bit of a treat when it comes to the Imperial Guard with the rumour of updated Ogryns and more on the way too. I’m a big fan of those berets on the Scion’s heads!
What do you think?
