EDIT - Thanks to reader Jim, we've made an adjustment to this week's pre-orders as the US and UK (but not EU) did get the Necrons and the Adeptus Mechanicus, so kindly scroll down for this week in all its entirety.
There's more Aeronautica Imperialis reboxing, with the Lightning Fighter, Marauder Bomber, Marauder Destroyer, plus some Forge World resin minis, the Marauder Colossus and Marauder Pathfinder, plus the Arvus Lighters on pre-order. They're not the only ones, with the plastic Questoris Knights, Cerastus Knight Lancers, Reaver Titans, and Warlord Titans returning, plus Forge World's Warglaives and Helverins, Knights Styrix, Moriax, Magaera, Atrapos, Arcastus, Asterius, Cerastus and the Warlord-Sinister Psi Titan in spanking new Legions Imperialis boxes. Will this be the end of Adeptus Titanicus? Time will tell! Legions Imperialis has also introduced some new terrain, with the Civitas Imperialis City Road Tiles and Civitas Imperialis Ruins sets, plus the Administratum Sector which collects some of the Adeptus Titanicus terrain kits, up for pre-order too. There's also a collection of new bases - Aeronautica Imperialis Base Pack, Legions Imperialis 120mm Oval Base, Legions Imperialis 105mm Oval Base, Legions Imperialis 80mm Round Base Pack, Legions Imperialis 50mm Round Base Pack, Legions Imperialis 40mm Round Flying Base Pack, and the Legions Imperialis 40mm Round Base Pack.
There's also the new new Carta Galactica Map showing the Imperium's domains at the time of the Heresy.
Despite the Codex for the Necrons, plus some great Necron minis. plus the Codex for the Adeptus Mechanicus being listed as being on pre-order this weekend, they are missing in action! But we do have these....
The excellent Necromunda terrain sets continue with the Ash Wastes Outpost, bringing together some older pieces and some new, these are a departure from the traditional walls of the Hive City and a reflection of what's going on outside in the Ash Wastes of Necromunda. Speaking of Necromunda, there's two Forge World kits this week, with the awesome looking Asun'ghar, The Lady Of Ash and the super chunky Ironhead Squat Prospectors Skalvian Explorator. We really wish both had been in plastic!
There's a new Kill Team card pack with the Kill Team: Approved Ops – Tac Ops & Mission set giving you the ability to combine three mission types with nine standard killzone maps, or 10 Close Quarters maps – plus 27 Tac Ops cards, covering every archetype, and two alternate Tac Ops cards for Close Quarters games.
In books this week there's Warboss in paperback and the Titanicus omnibus, God-Machines in paperback.
Not everyone loves Necrons, and frankly ancient metallic warriors are hard to love - they certainly don't like hugs - but here they are, all ready for Warhammer 40K 10th Edition. Hot off the presses is their new Codex, which comes in Spit and Polish Collector’s Edition or Malign Force of Evil Standard Edition. The Necrons also get some lovely new miniatures, with a brand new Imotekh the Stormlord, Orikan the Diviner and an Overlord with Translocation Shroud. Plus there's two of the best Necron minis to be released since Day Zero, with the Overlord with Tachyon Arrow and Royal Warden, available in the 9th Edition Starter Set, now here to buy separately. Speaking of which, the bulk of the Necron forces. from that set are also now available in the Combat Patrol: Necrons. As you'd expect, there's also the Datasheet Cards for the Necrons (with pretty green foil edges) and a themed Necrons Dice Set.
On the other side of the machine equation, the Adeptus Mechanicus (beep-boop) are also rolling out their 10th Edition Codex, which is available in either Robes Are So This Year Collectors Edition or Mechanoid Radioactive Army Standard Edition. While the Necrons got a selection of stellar minis, the Adeptus Mechanicus got an absolute stinker. Fresh from the We Have No More Ideas Factory, is the Sydonian Skratos - comically absurd, totally undynamic and ridiculous. However, fear not disciples, the new Combat Patrol: Adeptus Mechanicus at least gives you some nice minis to paint up so you can ignore this other one. Happily, the new Adeptus Mechanicus Datasheet Cards are very nice, and come with red foil edges to the cards, plus there's a set of Adeptus Mechanicus Dice.
When will we see these in other parts of the world? Not sure. Suffice to say that we, the customer, will be the very last to know, thank you Games Workshop!
