Now Vashtorr might not fight in the corridors of the space hulks, but there are plenty who do, as these four new Boarding Patrols prove - one each for the Genestealer Cults, Death Guard, Adeptus Mechanicus, and Chaos Daemons. Not bad little sets for either their intended purpose, or as force multipliers for your existing armies.
Something else that is too big to fight in the corridors of the space hulks, are Imperial Knights, who this week get new dice sets - one for Imperial Knights and one for the Chaos Knights!
Horus Heresy fans delight in having a crappy difficult and awkwardly heavy resin kit replaced with a lovely new near-identical plastic kit of the Typhon Heavy Siege Tank. What a beauty she is too! It is interesting that this kit only comes with the Dreadhammer and not the turbo-laser destroyer variant like the Vindicator does. That would make a pretty great multi-kit.
It's been a while since we have had some new plastic Lord of the Rings, and this week we have two sets - the flexible Gothmog, Lieutenant of Sauron, who has multiple weapon and accessory options and the Faramir, Madril and Damrod, Rangers of Ithilien set that provides you with dynamic poses in almost mini diorama type poses, which is a lovely touch.
In books this week we have the beautifully presented Cypher: Lord of the Fallen in Limited Edition, Knight of Talassar: The Cato Sicarius Omnibus, and Ahriman: Eternal in paperback.
It's also a White Dwarf week with Issue 486 out on Friday.
Not to be outdone, there are Mk VI shoulder and head upgrades for Raven Guard and Alpha Legion, plus two different generic Character Heads Upgrade Sets. These seem like great sets with some of the best heads we've seen in some time from Forge World, who can sometimes botch them horribly. However these should be on everyone's shopping list! Be great to have these in plastic!
