Next week sees the release of the new Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus, which comes in Collectors Edition and normal Assembly Line versions, plus the Datacards and a few bundles or older models. Bit of as pity not to have something new like a new transport or tank though. Girly-man's current BFF, Bellisarius Cawl (left) also gets an individual release - and man is he $$! Pretty sure I got one on eBay for $40!
It's quite interesting actually, the Adeptus Mechanicus release quite plainly spells out them out as being for 40K only ("detailed history of the Adeptus Mechanicus, from their inception to the 41st Millennium...") and with a current discussion in the community about some Mechanicum players using 40K models in 30K Horus Heresy gaming instead of the excellent but expensive Forge World range, I wonder if there could be some further sectioning off of the two ranges. Or maybe we just need plastic Thallax.... COME ON, PLEASE!!
The Nurgle release from last week continues with Mortarian's Deathshroud Bodyguard, three Terminators, who seem to be multi-part, if not multi-pose.
Away from the main releases, the Eye of Night audio drama which apparently ties Inquisitor Greyfax into the background of Battlefleet Gothic game. Still think this game is going to be re-released!
In book releases, we get a rare look into a sub-branch of the Emperor's elite Custodes in Watchers of the Throne: The Emperor's Legion. This hitherto unspoken cadres are the ones tasked with making sure the Emperor not only flushes, but puts the toilet seat down after using his Golden Throne. They make sure there is plenty of paper, reading material and clean it endlessly until it's spotless. Not a job for a mindless Servitor, these men have a task only few can perform, and they do it with pride - even after The Emperor has a night on the curry! It's a powerfully moving story of devotion and sacrifice.
Seems like a stretch - but look how totally awesome these are!
