This week sees the Lumineth Realm-lords bolstered by the final release of heavy hitters, the latest issue of White Dwarf, a pair of heroes for your Gondor army, and a very different sort of Warhammer 40,000 novel. Watch This Week In Warhammer for a quick dose.
The Lumineth Realm-lords are Ready to March
With this final wave of releases, these stone-cold aelves are prepared to take on the Mortal Realms in an avalanche of magic and martial might. Let’s start with the cavalry previously available in the Army Set – the Vanari Dawnriders.
These lance-wielding equestrians are packed with options to add variety so you can feel free to add them to your collection with no fear of two units looking the same. That’s good because you’ll want loads of them – not only do they look amazing, they add a lot of tactical flexibility to your army too.
Looking for something to hold the line? Available for the first time are the bull-headed, hammer-wielding Alarith Stoneguard (and their fancy hats)!
These aelves hit like an avalanche – more heavily armed and armoured than their Vanari kin, the stalwart Stoneguard’s resolve is as firm as the mountain. Waves of lesser warriors will dash themselves to pieces against their defences.
Speaking of big hammers…
The Alarith are the bound spirits of the sacred mountains, animating armoured war forms that are as much beautiful shrines as they are weapons. They wield gargantuan hammers and tower over their foes, emboldening their allies to ever greater acts of valour.
This kit also builds Avelenor, the Stoneheart King.
The oldest, wisest, and most powerful of the Alarith, Avelenor lends his counsel and his strength to the Lumineth Realm-lords. Every self-respecting Hyshian general will want him in the centre of their ranks as he smashes foes with his Firestealer Hammers and blinds the enemy with his divine radiance.
If you’re looking for a bit more magical support, the Alarith Stonemage joins the fray this week.
Armed with ancient magic that grants them mastery over rocks and boulders, as well as gravity itself, these mages offer powerful options to your army. Not only are they able to suppress the movement of their enemies, but Stonemages can also empower the hammers of nearby Stoneguard with even more crushing force.
These releases complete the initial Lumineth Realm-lords range and round out their tactical toolbox. Keep an eye out for a closer look at them throughout the week, including a series of videos to show you how to paint them up in all their gleaming glory!
Want to display your hobby dedication with something a bit bigger and more Space Marine-y? Take a look at these new action figures from our partners at Bandai.
Built to the same exacting specifications as the recent Ultramarines Primaris Intercessor, these fully articulated action figures represent two new Chapters. The Imperial Fists, clad in their proud yellow livery, and the flame-embellished Salamanders stand by to protect humanity – and your display shelves – from all the horrors of the galaxy.
Check back later this week to learn how to get your armoured gauntlets on them.
The latest issue of White Dwarf is nearly upon us, and all 160 pages are packed with amazing hobby goodness.
This issue focuses on the new edition of Warhammer 40,000, including design notes from the creators that can’t be found anywhere else, a massive Battle Report from the Edge of Silence campaign, and an Index Astartes for the Silver Templars! We’ll give you a peek later on, but suffice to say you’ll probably want to plan on picking up a copy.
If that’s not enough reading for you, you’re going to love this new Warhammer 40,000 novel from Mike Brooks.
Written from the viewpoint of a band of rampaging orks, Brutal Kunnin is packed with all the action and dark humour you’d expect. See if you can wrap your head around what it’s like to be an ork as they loot and destroy a forge world.
Have you been looking to add some stealthy stalkers to your Gondor army? This new pair of Ranger heroes will ensure their effectiveness.
You’ll be able to pre-order these Forge World resin Rangers this coming Friday to lead your warriors of Ithilien. Each of them enhances the soldiers under their command, as well as adding their own considerable skill to the combat.
