It's here - the release that came out of the blue & slapped the community across the face - the Thousand Sons! There's so much released in one week, it's hard to even keep track of it all!
Kicking off the Thousand Sons is the Warzone Fenris: Wrath of Magnus books, one back ground and the other rules. The background book also includes colour schemes for six warbands! There is of course a deluxe version which breaks the bank! (right
In terms of miniatures, well it's literally an army released in one week: Magnus the Red himself (with multiple heads - thankfully one with the single eye in the middle), his Exalted Sorcerers, the elite Scarab Occult Terminators, the backbone of his Legion the Rubric Marines, the Tzeentch-tainted Beastmen, the Tzaangors, and finally the infamous sorceror Ahriman! This is an epic release - so many sets all at once. Interestingly, we may see the Tzaangors repacked very soon for Age of $igmar as their 40K weapons are on a separate sprue in the box.
In related products, there are Thousand Sons dice, and two new paints; Thousand Sons Blue and Ahriman Blue.
In other hobby news, there are a number of 'new' sprays; the return of The Fang just in time for Space Wolves to take on this new Thousand Sons threat, Stormvermin Fur, and for the first time a yellow spray Averland Sunset. A much needed addition to the range for anyone who's done lots of layers of yellow! The XL black & XL white are out too!
You might notice two sneaky little additions on the end there - The Hobbit has a brand new companion book as well as the Goblin Town walkways, which I'm sure will be popular with Skaven players too!
... and lastly before we go, the Thousand Sons Upgrade Set is on Last Chance to Buy. I ordered a set and despite them being Failcast they are excellent. Beautiful moulds, super crisp and clean - and cheap!!
