Horus Heresy – Legions Imperialis

With yesterdays non-40k preview we had an epic teaser and reveal on the return of small scale battles in the Grim Dark future, but not covering 40k but 30k's conflict of the Horus Heresy. The name Epic is dropped and returns as Warhammer The Horus Heresy - Legions Imperialis.

And this means, I am spot on with my Horus Heresy on an epic scale and really looking forward, what the rules and new range brings along.

Games Workshop revealed a rulebook and starter set, which can be either used as a conflict or large army box, covering Space Marines and Solar Auxilia. The poster boys for this release are the death guard.

Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Primaris Sternguard and Characters

Let's finish the Space Marine part of the Warhammer 40,000 Leviathan boxed set. We showed you the Terminators, we covered the Ballistus Dreadnought and today it is about the Primaris Space Marines with Tacticus and Phobos Armour.

Two more characters, an Apothecary Biologis and Lieutenant in Phobos Armour, as well as a new Sternguard Veteran Squad and Infernus Squad.

Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Ballistus Dreadnought

Part of the Space Marine battle force from the Warhammer 40,000 Leviathan box is a new sub-class of the Redemptor Dreadnought, armed with a versatile missile launcher and a devastating twin-linked lascannon.

Of the Redemptor class of Dreadnoughts we've built the Brutalis Dreadnought in February and now have the chance to cover another Primaris scaled Dread.


Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Terminators and Characters

We did the Unboxing of the Warhammer 40,000 Leviathan boxed set and start with the first detailed review covering the new, upscaled Terminators and Characters, a Captain and a Librarian.

These models are currently only available via Leviathan and as they are push-fit, it is likely that the characters will be available separately later, but the Terminators will most likely be replaced with a multipart plastic kit, covering additional weapon options.

What are Terminators? Only the Veterans of the 1st company of a Space Marine chapter, who earn the Crux Terminatus, have the right to wear the Tactical Dreadnought Armour, most commonly known as Terminator Armour. These armours are the toughest infantry armour the Mechanicum provides to the Space Marines, but their wearers trade in maneuverability for protection and heavier firepower. As such they are often used in boarding actions on starships or other assault missions, where they can make additional use of the teleportation technology integrated into the armour.


Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Unboxing

You can pre-order the launch box of Warhammer 40,000 10th edition - Leviathan soon! This new box was previewed on Warhammer Fest in April 2023.

This is not a starter set, as we've seen in the past, but a Tyrannic Wars themed launch set, covering two armies, Space Marines and Tyranids, and the new 10th edition rulebook as a hardcover.

The box is available for pre-order since today, April 15th, at a RRP of 35 EUR and will be delivered a week after.


Warhammer 40,000 – Dark Angels Supreme Grand Master Azrael

With the Wrath of the Soul Forge boxed set, we see the return of Supreme Grand Master Azrael, after he crossed the Rubicon Primaris.

Warhammer 40,000 - Dark Angels Supreme Grand Master Azrael

He certainly will - as many of the other characters - be available on his own outside of the bundle. So far no RRP was communicated on him, but I assume he will be around price of High Marshal Helbrecht - 42,50 EUR / 32,50 GBP.


Warhammer 40,000 – Space Marine Brutalis Dreadnought

While we had our last review covering a Dreadnought last year as part of our Horus Heresy Age of Darkness coverage with the Contemptor Dreadnought plastic kit, today we want to cover the new Space Marine Brutalis Dreadnought, available from today via the Strike Force Agastus.

Warhammer 40,000 - Space Marine Brutalis Dreadnought

The new Primaris sized Dreadnoughts are a bit of a mixture of the classic dreadnought we know from the 90s is classified as Castraferrum Pattern Mark V Dreadnought, and the old Rogue Trader era Dreadnought Armour. The early designs, closer to robots than the walking sarcophagus they are nowadays, were picked up with the Contemptor pattern. If you take a look on the legs, you see they are more articulated as with the Castraferrum pattern and the design department went back to that.


Horus Heresy – Liber Hereticus

The second supplement for the new Horus Heresy covers the Traitor Legions and is called Liber Hereticus, and provides the same information as the Liber Astartes does for the loyal legion for those who follow the Warmaster Horus.

Horus Heresy - Liber Hereticus Horus Heresy - Liber Hereticus

Each of the legion books is 55 EURs and more than 300 pages thick. They are produced as full coloured hard cover, with thick paper and even a cloth bookmark. And this review on the Liber Heretics is going to give you a similar deep dive, as we did earlier on the Liber Astartes.


Horus Heresy – Liber Astartes

In addition with the update Horus Heresy rule set (currently not available on its own, just as part of the Age of Darkness set) Games Workshop released two large supplements, covering the army lists for the loyalist and traitor Space Marine Legions.

Horus Heresy - Liber Astartes Horus Heresy - Liber Astartes

Each book is 55 EURs and more than 300 pages thick. Manufactured as a hard cover in full colour, with thick paper and even a cloth bookmark. We're going to look into these separately, beginning with the Liber Astartes. The book for the Space Marine Legions loyal to the Emperor.
