Games Workshop announced their Legion of the Damned Codex a few days ago, which gives more insight than we may ever have had into the mysterious Legiones Astartes. The Marines who appear out of nowhere to turn the tide of battle in their flaming armour.
Apart from sporting probably the best Legion of the Damned cover ever - there really isn't anything about this release that says "new" - which brings with it overtones of the Sisters of Battle release from a few months ago.
Remember that? No? That's okay - no one else does either!
Games Workshop have wheeled out the old Finecast miniatures which, beautiful as they are, are (a) not new and (b) Finecast.
This would have been the perfect opportunity for GW to release their first miniatures taken from Finecast and put into plastics. These iconic Marines seem like too good an opportunity... but alas!
Come on GW - It's not new unless it's new.
BTW, have a look at the guy on the right - since when were these guys the undead?
