Games Workshop Introducing Space Marine Heroes Range To Japan

July 31, 2017 by brennon

It looks like Games Workshop is trying to krak their way into the Japanese market with Warhammer 40,000 as the website for Space Marine Heroes launched recently.

The idea of the range is that they are all cheap to pick up and work as ‘blind buys’ meaning that you’ll not know what you’ve got until you crack open the box. The first wave of models that you can see above brings together a squad of Tactical Space Marines and we’ve included some of them below.

All of the models that they are bringing out are single pose so there’s no fiddling around too much for those who just want to dip their toe into the world.

Interestingly these Space Marines are all the more typical design that folks will be used to rather than the new Primaris that have hit over the last couple of months. This is also a range which is exclusive to Japan right now and I don’t imagine we’ll see them coming across to Europe and America anytime soon.

With them being Series #1 could we also see them branching out to include other races and units from Warhammer 40,000?

Thanks to @redben for spotting this and community member @dawfydd as well.

Do you think this is going to work in Japan?
