The new miniature for Farsight looks particularly awesome and comes in his new XV-86 Supernova Battlesuit. This suit has been specially built for the Commander to enhance their abilities even further. The suit also comes with a very high-tech AI called Supernova (hence the name of the battlesuit).

With blade at the ready, Commander Farsight is pushing back against the War Of Dakka that has been started by the dastardly Orks. Led by the Bad Moons Warlord, Nazdreg, he is looking to best the T'au at their own game and blow them to pieces on the battlefield.

A Sneaky Purple Ork...

Leading the way (in the shadows at least) for the Orks, we have the sneaky and backstabbing Snikrot!

Kunnin' is better than straight-up krumpin' when it comes to Snikrot and his band of Orks. He is going to be sneaking around in the darkness of the Arks Of Omen, his night vision goggles humming on in the darkness as he stalks his prey. There will be a lot of slit throats when this fellow is on the battlefield.

New Boarding Patrols

You'll be able to get your hands on these new miniatures first through two new Boarding Patrols which will be released soon. There is one coming for the T'au Empire and one for the Orks.

Farsight fights at the forefront of this force and is backed up by three Crisis Battlesuits. They could be used to represent some of the close-knit clan that Farsight fights alongside. This set also comes with a squad of ten Fire Warriors which can be assembled as a Breacher Team. Despite the close confines of the Arks Of Omen, these suits and warriors will be able to breach and clear. You've also got a set of Tactical Drones for making a buzzing squadron.

The Ork set comes with some serious dakka!

Boarding Patrol Orks - Warhammer 40000

This set comes with Snikrot with three different head options plus a band of five Flash Gits who are armed to da teef! You've also got ten Beast Snagga Boyz who are good at crushing their foes in close combat and ten Kommandos. A perfect set of Orkish warriors for sneaking around on the Arks Of Omen. Unleash the Bomb Squig!

New Arks Of Omen Book

Last but not least, we have the Arks Of Omen book that will be coming to support the ongoing series.

Arks Of Omen Farsight - Warhammer 40000

Arks Of Omen - Farsight // Warhammer 40,000

Farsight has been drawn to the world of Arthas Moloch where he needs to get rid of the Ork threat. However, those shiny new Arks Of Omen hove into view and make everything way more terrible than it already is.

The book will come with additional rules for Boarding Actions including Enhancements and Stratagems for the T'au Empire, Asuryani, Ynnari, Drukhari, Harlequins and the Adepta Sororitas.

A hefty set of releases coming up for Arks Of Omen and those playing as the T'au or Orks!
