Shadowspear Battlebox Brings New Miniatures To Warhammer 40,000

February 8, 2019 by brennon

We knew it was coming. The forces of Chaos are arriving on Vigilus and they are very, very angry. Games Workshop has designed a new Battlebox for use in Warhammer 40,000 featuring Space Marines going up against Chaos Space Marines in Shadowspear.

All of the miniatures within this box are entirely new, for both factions, and offer you a chance to play as either a shadowy aspect of the Space Marine force or the brutal and bloodthirsty forces of Chaos. Leading the Space Marines we have a new Librarian model.

This Librarian, who looks like a total badass, by the way, is leading a force of Eliminators as they look to hunt down the foes of the Emperor. Take a look at these new power armoured snipers as they get a bead on the enemy.

It is nice to see an evolution of the Space Marine Scout as we take further steps towards the entire Space Marine range becoming Primaris. I know a few people will lament this but it makes sense to me that they end up doing this.

The artwork shows off a little more of what's coming for the Space Marine side of things, these dirty fighters taking some cues from their foes in the name of the Emperor.

On the Chaos side of things they're finally seeing the update, they deserve with the traditional traitors getting themselves an upgrade worthy of those that turn their hand to dispatching the servants of the False Emperor.

Led by the Master of Possessions that we've already seen before in previous previews we're also seeing some rather monstrous additions to the army including a new take on Obliterators...

...and this crazy looking piece of kit, the  Venomcrawler. Things are looking a lot more 'DOOM' for the forces of Chaos which is a good pool of inspiration to draw from of course as those demons look utterly awesome.

More is set to be revealed for the Shadowspear Battlebox in due course giving you a peek at the other warriors caught up in this conflict for both the Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines. Additionally, another big character is coming back to the fore...

Not quite the Primaris Lieutenant you were expecting, right?

Adepta Sororitas Incoming

We got more news on what's happening with the Adepta Sororitas as we took a peek at another of their miniatures in the works.

2019 is meant to be the year of the Sisters Of Battle so I hope we get to see more news on what's happening with them in the months to come.
