Warhammer 40,000’s Cadian Shock Troops Get A New Look!

May 10, 2021 by brennon

The armies of the Imperium bring together many, many people from across hundreds of worlds. So, it makes sense that your army in Warhammer 40,000 would have plenty of options to show that. Thankfully, Games Workshop is updating their Cadian Shock Troops set to represent that!

The options that you see here are going to be included in new sets of Cadian Shock Troops in the future. It doesn't do much to change up the older sculpts but it does introduce some much-needed variety to this force. As well as a range of new heads, you'll also find a new selection of weapons to army your Cadians with too.

Bolt Guns, Plasma Guns, Melta Guns and more are included. This should go a long way towards making your Astra Militarum force feel a bit more unique. I will say that it still doesn't match up to some of the alternative head options out there from third-party suppliers but it is nice to see Games Workshop moving with the times.

I guess the only downside is that whilst this is an update for the Cadians, it still leaves many of the different regiments in the Imperium without an update. I'm sure that a lot of people would still love to see updated Catachans, Valhallans and more.

It should also be noted that the heads work with a lot of other Astra Militarum sets out there so you could use this sprue to help you diversify a lot more of your heavy weapon crews, tank crews, command squads and more.

Small steps are helpful though and I'm sure if these go down well, the folks on high might see the other armies of the Imperium as worthy!

What do you make of the new bitz?
