This week’s releases see the arsenal of the Death Guard continue to swell, with the addition of some heavy armour, air assault units and some potent support characters. Enemies of Chaos, fear not! The Astra Militarum are also receiving a jam-packed new codex.
The Foetid Bloat-drone is a versatile aerial unit in the Death Guard army, with the Foetid Bloat-drone kit building no fewer than three variants of this disgusting Daemon Engine! If you’re looking for some long-ranged support, the heavy blight launcher is a powerful choice, while if you’re looking for a grisly way to take down heavily armoured infantry the aptly named fleshmower is perfect. Similarly, if you’re looking to add some reliable anti-swarm firepower to the army, the plaguespitter from the Dark Imperium set is also included.
The Plagueburst Crawler is the ideal heavy support option for the Death Guard army. Armed with a range of devastating anti-armour weapons and armoured with daemonic durability (and Disgustingly Resilient), you’ll be able to shore up gun lines and screen your assault units as they march up the table.
It’s not just about the big guns – this week, you’ll also be able to pre-order a pair of invaluable support characters for the Death Guard army. The first of these is the Tallyman, a battlefield preacher who turns logistics into an act of dark prayer to Nurgle. Ritually counting shells fired, corpses, plagues and more besides, the Tallyman’s endless chanting inspires his fellow Death Guard to fight harder. On the tabletop, he’ll also provide you with the chance to generate extra Command Points, while giving nearby Death Guard units rerolls to hit (perfect for units like the Blightlord Terminators).
The second character to join the Death Guard is the Plague Surgeon. This malevolent medic was once an Apothecary in the Space Marine Legions, but now fills a much darker purpose. As you’d expect, the Plague Surgeon boosts the durability of your nearby Death Guard units (including Mortarion himself), but he’s also a pretty deadly close combat character, specialising in killing members of the Adeptus Astartes.
Talking of the forces of the Emperor, the new Astra Militarum codex brings the Imperial Guard into a new era of Warhammer 40,000. With new rules for 8 different regiments – including the Militarum Tempestus! – Stratagems, Warlord Traits and even new orders, this codex allows you to build thematic, fun, and powerful army lists, whether you’re looking to field a tight-knit gun line of massed infantry or a fast-moving armoured column. As well as new rules, there’s tons of background covering how the Astra Militarum have developed throughout the millennia and following the opening of the Great Rift, including a detailed look at some more unusual regiments. In short, it’s your complete guide to the brave armies of the Imperium.
Finally, if you’re looking for a place to play that’s easy to set up and put away, Moon Base Klasius gives you a battlefield in a box! 4 fold-out card tiles fit together to build a double-sided, full-colour gaming board. This can be combined with the push-fit terrain found in the set to create awesome looking battlefields in moments. The set is even styled to match both the Sector Imperialis and Sector Mechanicus terrain, so adding variety to your battlefields is simpler than ever. Whether you’re just getting started and need a place to play, or have a gaming table of your own and fancy something portable, it’s a pretty nifty set.
