Speaking of 40K, this week sees the launch of the new Horus Heresy/ 40K Land Raider Proteus, which throws back to the original Warhammer 40K V1 (Rogue Trader) in design. It's a great looking vehicle and can be built with either an assault ramp or the traditional old school dozer blade in Explorator configuration.
Some "big" (pun intended) releases for Warhammer Age of $igmar this week, with the Sons of Behemat launching their new Battletome - which comes in Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum Limited Edition or Toe Jam Standard Edition. Launching with the Battletome is the huge new King Brodd kit, which not only sees the Sons of Behemat King take to the field, but it's a combi-kit, so you can also choose to make the Beast-smasher Mega-Gargant, Kraken-eater Mega-Gargant, Warstomper Mega-Gargant or Gatebreaker Mega-Gargant from the same box. It's not cheap though, but would all those spare bitz be worth it? The original Mancrusher Gargant is also back, and there's a pretty good deal on the Mancrusher Mob which sees you getting one-ish free if you buy three. Sons of Behemat also get a themed Dice Set.
On the totally other side of the coin, the Battletome for the Lumineth Realm-lords is also on pre-order. These are really beautiful miniatures - trust me, I have been bitten by the bug recently and delved into this force. The Battletome comes in Bling-Bling Limited Edition or Pointy Battleline Standard Edition. There's also a new Vanguard box for the Lumineth Realm-lords which gives you all you will need for one form of combat, it's only missing the cavalry for the other form. Of course there's also Warscroll Cards and the Lumineth Realm-lords-themed Dice Set.
In books this week, it's more Black Templar goodness with Helbrecht: Knight of The Throne in Hardback.
As with last week, there's some stocking-stuffers for Xmas with the adult sized Roy Lowe: Warhammer 40,000 – Red Imperial Aquila Socks and Blue Imperial Aquila Socks.
