As with most releases, there is the standard Codex that most of us will be picking up. They are packed full of background, unit information and of course some of the statistics for your units too. This book specifically focuses on those Chapters which have stuck to the mandates of Roboute Guilliman so you’ll still get the likes of Space Wolves and Dark Angles in the future don’t worry.
There is also the Primaris Edition which comes with a Mini-Codex for quick reference during games, art cards and a Command Point Tracker too.
While this version of the book is very nice, I think that most people are going to be plumping for the standard Codex. However, if you’re a die hard fan then one of these might make your bookcase look extra sexy.
Leading the way for the new miniatures we have the Redemptor Dreadnought which will be getting an unboxing here on BoW later today!
This is a great kit and certainly one that John has been having fun with. It comes with all manner of weapon options and is a real step up from the traditional Dreadnought. I still have a soft spot for those walking tombs though if I’m honest.
Joining them we also have two new infantry units with the Primaris Reivers…
…and the Primaris Aggressors. Each of these units fulfils a very different role on the tabletop with the Reivers focusing in on close combat and sneaking up on their enemies whilst the Aggressors are there to blast their foes to smithereens.
Essentially walking fortresses, they are carrying enough armaments to level a bunker. They seem like they fit in around the spot between Devastators and heavily armed and armoured Terminators. They are certainly a more welcome look and design compared to the Centurions.
Will you be picking up the new units and the Codex?
