This week we have the Siege Breaker Consul, another in the line of field commanders for the Horus Heresy. Very nice model, wielding a Stormcast warhammer, and with an oddly out of place MkVI helmet when a MKIII or MKV would be much more appropriate. Lots of cool detail on this model, including the bespoke backpack and artificer greaves, plus some extra groin armour!
Only other common release this week are the books, with Lazarus: Eternity's Edge in hardback and Cypher: Lord of the Fallen (previously a Collectors Edition) in paperback adding to the Dark Angels' releases in the rest of the world this week. There's also an End Times omnibus, with Doom of the Old World, which includes the novels The Curse of Khaine, The Rise of the Horned Rat, The Lord of the End Times, and two short stories, The Siege of Naggarond and Bride of Khaine.
Having read the book about the return of The Lion we're a bit baffled why the Dark Angels are still "hunting The Fallen" but here we go, as Asmodai, Master of Repentance comes forth with a brand new Primaris-scale mini. Heavily based on Mark Gibbons artwork, this is an amazing mini and comes with a choice of head options. Next up is Belial, Grand Master of the Deathwing, billowing cape and all, plus he also has head options. Speaking of the Deathwing - here are the Deathwing Knights - with this awesome update on what were already brilliant models. The amount of detail on these minis is incredible, really dipping into the lore and iconography of the Dark Angels. Prefer your Dark Angels in robes? Well the Inner Circle Companions are for you. With weapon, head and backpack options, this is a really thematic kit which will be loved by Dark Angels and Black Templar fans alike. There's also a new Dark Angels Upgrades and Transfers kit, which as with so many of the new kits comes with a Watcher in the Dark. Previously mysterious, maybe we should call them Watcher Emerging From The Dark from now on. This set comes with some great bits, including some for the Ravenwing, and yet more cowled heads. The Dark Angels also get a new Combat Patrol, giving you a Captain in Gravis Armour, three Bladeguard Veterans, five Hellblasters, and 10 Intercessors. Be aware that the transfer sheet in this set is the older one, not the one in the new Dark Angels Upgrades and Transfers kit. To top it all off, the Dark Angels also get a lovely white marble and green Dice Set and the Datasheet Cards to make sure you can run them on the battlefield to their maximum potential.
These are of course available in all other countries except Australia and New Zealand where they will be delayed.
