The Codex is available in the usual flavours; the 'Uman Jam Collectors Edition and the Stompy Stomp standard edition. In terms of miniatures, this release is based around Speed Freeks - the boxed game from last week. The emphasis on mobility is writ large with four new vehicles; Megatrakk Scrapjet, Boomdakka Snazzwagon, Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy and the Deffkilla Wartrike. There's also an amazingly detailed terrain piece, the Mekboy Workshop, plus the usual themed Dice and Data Cards. As well as the new stuff we have pretty much the entire Ork range reboxed - minus some so we assume there will be more next week - the Ork Warbiker Mob, the resin Ork Kommandos and resin Ork Tankbustas, Ork Warboss Grukk's Boss Mob (you can also get the Nobz without him), the Ork Lootas/ Burna Boyz combi-kit (the best heads of almost any Ork kit out there), the excellent Ork Stormboyz, plus the venerable Ork Boyz kit with lots of great bits and packed with character. Speaking of character, the old Ork Gretchin kit is back, plus if you want to take a punt on Orks but you're not sure, the Easy To Build: Ork Boyz is around - also a great way to get alternative heads. To lead your Ork WAAARGH why not consider Ghazghkull Thraka? Pair him with the very expensive Ork Nob With Waaagh! Banner (he's the same price as a box of Boyz) and maybe one of a motley crew of characters - an Ork Painboy, the resin Mad Dok Grotsnik or even an Ork Mek.
What's really interesting about this range is the amount of years and editions of 40K it covers. Have a look at how the Orks have changed and also how reasonably priced their units are. Sure you can need a lot of Ork Boyz, but doing so won't break the bank!
Away from Orkiness, Sly Marbo gets an online re-release *yawn*, BUT how cool is this? Realmslayer: A Gotrek Gurnisson Series is back out... WITH BRIAN BLESSED DOING THE VOICE OF GOTREK. By the Gods this is cool. In the world of books, Blacktalon is out for Age of $igmar, the Voice of Mars paperback is also on it's way, as is White Dwarf November 2018. Now we still haven't received last month's White Dwarf, so any anticipation or interest is well and truly dead on this one!
