About this deal

I crawl through my accumulated bitz box for ideas – a compartmentalised mash of Imperial Guard, scenery and Space Marine pieces. These fervent followers add to the thematic chaos, showcasing the legion’s ability to overwhelm their enemies through sheer numbers and zeal. I vastly prefer the new range’s detailing and proportions, but my heart still yearns for customization in both rules and models. It states that, “ Space marine siege mantlets must be modelled appropriately with a large shield of some kind,” and that warms my heart. Some people on Discord saw me painstakingly balance out points and unit wargear in my list for a week before the Arks of Omen changes shredded everything.

Maybe another 20 cultists or if you’re feeling extra spicy, drop 10 cultists and add in 5 more Terminators. We’re using the latest Munitorum Field Manual for these point breakdowns so feel free to double check our work. Boarding Patrol: Space Marines contains a Captain in Gravis Armour, 10 Assault Intercessors, and five Heavy Intercessors, making a capable close-quarters force with plenty of firepower and durability for sticky situations. Both of the sets here are designed so they fit into Boarding Actions' 500-point limit and the other army building rules that we looked at last week HERE.Currently wondering whether these should be bumped up to a unit of ten, but the next Heavy Intercessors squad I pick up will form a new unit for the Third Company, and I will think about growing them later on. What constitutes a bulky item shall be at Battlefield Hobbies Limited’s discretion, hazardous items are those deemed so by the Royal Mail. Will usually dispatch within same working day if paid before 14:00 GMT (excludes weekends and holidays).

With years of experience, and millions of cards sold we're the highest rated and trusted place for all your TCG supplies. So I think the box will come with 10 marines but the picture on the box is the actual warband you can play. This was the coolest shit to me when I got my first army box (it had a Stormtalon and Sternguard in it – does anyone remember that one? You don't get either of the head honchos in this set but you do get ten Possessed, five Chaos Space Marine Terminators, a Heldrake and then a dark and twisted Daemon Prince.Instead, we mostly have mono-wargear squads that are much easier to handle in gameplay, but somewhat less interesting to unbox. Everyone has a different approach, but I tailor my thematic lists with an eye toward how I think my force would operate. So, if you need every single model inside and haven’t picked up Crowe yet, it will save you some cash. Within this box, the notorious Black Legion, led by the formidable Warmaster Abaddon, demonstrates their unmatched prowess in the galaxy.

A devout Canoness leads five Celestian Sacresants, 10 Sisters Repentia, and 10 Battle Sisters into the breach, making this a durable fighting force with plenty of power armour and some chainsword punch. In the brand new Boarding Actions format, compact armies battle through cramped corridors and treacherous corners. With the way line of sight works and close distances, I think the flamer options could be super effective in Boarding Actions.But what I’m also saying is, I can’t just make more Phobos-armoured legs and torsos appear out of nowhere. This Warhammer 40,000 set embodies the relentless aggression of the Heretic Astartes, once defenders of humanity, now swayed by the Dark Gods.
