If you want to get involved with this infamous Tau commander and his retinue of red-clad cool kids, then the new Boarding Patrol: T'au Empire will give you your first look at Farsight's new mech suit - and it's pretty stunning! A very nice upgrade to the previous model, there are new elements on here, very nicely melded with the classic look. There's a look of the Infinity range about this miniature, which is no bad thing. While you're there, go pick up the Arks of Omen: Farsight Enclaves Dice Set which features his icon. Speaking of icon, it's interesting GW didn't release an upgrade sprue with shoulder pads and chest pieces for this release. It makes sense!
This is not the only Boarding Patrol this week, with the new Boarding Patrol: Orks which includes new Boss Snikrot model and his entourage - which oddly includes Beast Snagga Boyz where you'd think the somewhat forgotten Boyz set would make more sense. There's more Boarding Patrols, including the excellent Aeldari and Drukhari ones (Eldar, why do you tempt me so?), a Necrons one that shows miniatures you can't use in Boarding Actions (well done GW! This goes back to the other week when we were saying how GW needs to stop with the copy and paste and take the time to paint up these sets differently to make them special) and one for the shiny Grey Knights. Do keep in mind that the Boarding Patrol set are limited, even though they're not marked as such.
Now if you like your Orks more than the average hobbyist, you can go all in with the Boss Snikrot's Blood Axe Kollekshun which not only includes the new Boarding Patrol, but also a further 10x Kommandos, a Bomb Squig and Distraction Grot, 10x Gretchin, 1x Runtherd, 5x Nobz, yet more Ork Transfers and a Catachan vs Orks Art Print.
Hold onto your steel hats, the Armageddon Steel Legion are back in Made To Order form, yet again! So if that tickles you in your special place, then you can order the Legion Commissar, Legion Officer with Power Sword and Bolt Pistol, Steel Legion Officer with Power Sword, Legion Sergeant, Legion Guardsman with Plasma Gun, Legion Infantry Squad, Legion Heavy Bolter Heavy Weapons Team or the larger Legion Heavy Bolter Squad, the Legion Lascannon Heavy Weapons Team or larger Legion Lascannon Squad, Legion Platoon or get amongst it with a whole lot of white metal goodness with the Armageddon Steel Legion Reinforced Platoon. Again, GW have used very old pictures here, when really a fresh paint job on these would have really brought them out.
In books we have the new Phil Kelly Tau book Shadowsun: The Patient Hunter in paperback. I'm pretty sure Shadowsun would be asking for a more flattering angle for that cover shot next time.
