Games Workshop is looking to release their new Battleforces for pre-order this weekend for Warhammer 40,000. If you want to check out the Warhammer Age Of Sigmar options, check out the post from last week HERE.

As always, Space Marines are part of the mix. This set actually looks like a pretty solid option for getting started with a lot of Space Marines all at once though. You've got a solid set of troops in there, some more elite options and a Storm Speeder.

Sticking with the Imperium, we also have the faithful Adepta Sororitas.

This seems lighter on the actual foot troops but it does give you a couple of big vehicles. The Immolator and the Exorcist should keep you covered as you advance into battle. You could probably do with a few more basic Sisters Of Battle to bulk out the ranks.

We also have the constantly meddling and tinkering forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus.

Your Tech-Priest takes control of a pretty mixed force of different units. You've got stealthy infiltrators, solid options for your core troops, fast attack cavalry and a few swooping flyers too. I think this, alongside the Space Marine one, is probably the best of the sets for someone looking to get a varied and complete army.

Forces Of Chaos

Stepping away from the Imperium, we have some of its deadliest foes. The Death Guard are rumbling forward with a fairly armoured Battleforce.

Three massive Myphitic Blight-haulers and a Plagueburst Crawler are at the heart of this force and you've also got the brutal Deathshroud Bodyguard. Whilst there is a bunch of more elite options here, it does feel like it is a little more balanced compared to the similarly weighted Adepta Sororitas force.

The Xenos Threat

Capping things off, we also have a couple of Xenos armies for you to consider. We start with an Ork force which comes with a bunch of the brand new Ork Boyz alongside some mechanised options.

A big Deffkilla Wartrike, a whole Dakka Jet and even a gaggle of Grots, it seems like you've got plenty to play with here. I think you could probably get away with adding a few Trukks into the mix and you'd have a solid force that is eager to get to grips with the enemy.

Lastly, we have a band of Necrons who have been awoken from their Tomb World to claim back their ancient empire.

Necrons Battleforce - Warhammer 40000

Necrons Battleforce // Warhammer 40,000

Again, just the one unit of Necron Warriors but an army supported by loads of towering elite options. This might end up actually being a good Battleforce to pick up if you wanted to supplement an existing army. Use this to get all of the different options available to a Necron player in one set.

Are you going to be picking up one of these Battleforces?
