Currently there are warbands that you can buy separately to add to the game, and as of next week you can now save $10 AUD and get those minis without all the cards that just take up room. Unfortunately these are Push-Fit, but their poses certainly transcend the usual stilted, static mono-pose offerings. On offer we have warbands for Skaven, Stormcast Eternals, Khorne Bloodbound, Deathrattle, Stormcast Eternals Farstriders, Khorne Bloodbound Reavers, Fyreslayers and the Ironjawz. These will make great additions to any Age of $igmar army as centrepieces, elite units or even scattered amongst your troops. Also on offer in Push-Fit is the Easy to Build Primaris Space Marines Collection and the Easy to Build Death Guard Collection.
In books we have Warhammer Chronicles: The War of Vengeance Omnibus which collects The Great Betrayal by Nick Kyme, Master of Dragons by Chris Wraight, The Curse of the Phoenix Crown by C L Werner.
A cool little add-on next week is the The Horus Heresy Journal - now generally these seem a bit naff, but this one has some nice little timeline details at the bottom of each page and the Eye of Horus at the top of each page. With the 1st anniversary of Alan Bligh's death, this is nicely (if potentially accidentally) timed.
Vale to you, Alan Bligh, on this anniversary of your passing. Your universe continues unabated! A tireless worker and hobbysist, it seems a fitting tribute that so many cling to his words for the universe they love so much. As times move forward, it will be out job to defend the legacy of his background against Games Workshop's trend of ever changing and retconning of fluff.
In the annals of 40K/ 30K, Alan Bligh shall always stand with the giants like Andy Chamers, Rick Priestly, Jes Goodwin and Jervis Johnson.
