Week 3 of the Astra Militarum releases sees this edition of White Dwarf dominated by the hulking Abhumans of renown - the Ogryns and their newly crowned brethren, Bullgryn.
Abhumans are a really interesting addition to the Imperial Guard (Astar Militarum) as they are in direct philosophical conflict with the Space Marines who would refuse to serve along side them.
Some other famous Abhumans would be the Ratlings, and if you go far enough back the Squats and Beastmen in Imperial service.
I would dearly love to see Beastmen return to Imperial service, but it's so unlikely I think we might see Squats before then!
So - apart from a really cool Commissar model, what else is in this issue of White Dwarf? More after the jump...
On the week where the Codex is released you'd expect there to be some more information for those still hedging their bets on whether to buy it or not, or maybe some alternate colour schemes on the Astra Militarum Tempestus, but they really seem to have all their eggs in one basket - and it's a basket with 3 miniatures in it for $65.
The new power mauls look great and I'm sure will be ending up on Assault Terminators fro the next few years. I'd actually like to see one of these guys next to a Terminator just to get an idea of size.
Oh, can I say at this point, I HATE that blue colour scheme!
Look at those Ripper Guns! Wow - they are nice.
I suppose we can expect these to be recycled into next months Warhammer Visions...
Am I tempted? Oh yes I am!
There is however quite a nice little conversion mixing the Tempestus kit wit the Cadian Command one. Have a look at the beret on the flag bearer. Cool, yeah?!
There have been rumours that they might have meant to, and yes indeedy they are!
How much do you like Ogryn?
Sure, there's a look at the new Cadian boxes (no new minis, just sets), Phil Kelly talks about how he games (!!), a look at a Yarrick novel and the usual stuff up the back of the issue including some orange Dark Eldar.
As far as going down in the annals of great issues, this is unlikely to, but if you're following the Astra Militarum, you may as well!
Any thoughts on the Ogryn/ Bullgryn kit?
What did you think of this issue?
