About this deal

All of the kits are largely monopose style with some very slight variations, but I suspect we’ll have a release with a more pose-able stand-alone box later. Be amongst the first wave to establish a foothold with this army set, and show the galaxy that though the planet may break, the Imperial Guard never will. I base this on the fact that the new Sentinel only has a Cadian pilot, and I bet the new Rogal Dorn tank only has Cadian crew members as well. Equipped with large-bore cannons, multi-missile launchers, or heavy, overcharged lascannons, Field Ordnance Batteries are the most powerful man-portable assets available.

I’m genuinely excited to see what you hobbyists out there do with these kits once you get your hands on them! Building them went fine, nothing was particularly complex to make fit and you’ve got loads of head options and a few special weapons. Head back to the hub page now to watch the Warhammer Preview Online and check out the rest of today’s reveals. This box is also the first place to find the new Codex: Astra Militarum, a 154-page hardback book with an exclusive cover, equipping you with inspiring lore, updated rules, and epic artwork.

This collection contains all our range of Astra Militarum kits, rules and accessories for Warhammer 40k. If you want to see our review of the rules for these models take a look over at our review article here.

Rockfish: Now this is something that you used to have to look into the forgeworld range to get for the army, big gun batteries not on a vehicle! All in all the Sentinel is a worthy upgrade, but I find it a pity that there are no suitable parts to represent other regiments. Whether on their own or as part of an Infantry Squad, Heavy Weapons Teams are responsible for taking down the big beasts that lasguns won’t scratch. There are a couple of things I wasn’t too enthusiastic about but are fine and done for practical reasons, the main one being that the cockpit is still a bunch of pieces that you have to be careful not to let gaps appear in. In addition to the book and models, you’ll find a complete deck of datacards, and a Cadian Transfer Sheet replete with almost 600 markings, text, and numerals.You’ll end up building the Scout version as you’re building the Armored version because both kits use the same roll cage. With a little bit of work, I’m confident that you could covert these to be crewed by other regiments. The countless billions of human soldiers who form the ranks of the Astra Militarum defend the Imperium of Man from swarms of enemies bent on its destruction. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

What do you think of the pricing and value breakdown of the new Imperial Guard, or Astra Militarum, Cadia Stands Army box set for Warhammer 40k? Despite all that is set against them the Imperial Guard, as they are otherwise known, use deadly war machines and rely on the courage of their guardsmen to shield humanity.

Let’s see if the Astra Militarum fanbase can be appeased by the very flexible doctrine and custom regimental rules system. Like the Leagues of Votann army set, the Astra Militarum army set comes in a large slipcase cardboard, and is filled to brim with plastic sprues. Similar to Death Korps of Krieg, the new Cadian Shock Troops come on two medium size sprues and 25mm bases (the Death Korps box has a third sprue of Kill Team specific upgrades, but the basic loadout comes on two sprues). It is our mission to bring you the latest from the miniature wargaming scene, from narrative missions, hobby how-to tutorials, battle reports, unboxings and reviews, retro flashbacks, news, rumors, and more.

Absolutely everything contained within is currently only available in this set – and won’t be sold separately until next year. A pilot with a generic Imperial overall and a few variant heads for Death Korps of Krieg, Catachans and Vostroyans would have been amazing. The primary fighting force of the Imperium, the Astra Militarum is so numerous in size that no one can place a figure on the number of Guardsmen filling its ranks. v=1668241816","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":21154448638010,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0. A squad of Cadian Shock Troops packs in more special weapons than a standard Infantry Squad, leaving the Heavy Weapons Team behind for greater mobility.While there are a million wonderful head options that probably include some of the best faces GW has ever put out, you won’t be finding as many choices on the rest of the kit. They’ve been upscaled to 28mm bases rather than 25s to differentiate them a bit more from your line troopers. If I were starting a new guard army I’d save every single extra bit to make cool thematic dioramas for my bases. I have a feeling that would be a ‘realistic’ detail to have but that would probably result in less clean of a design so I don’t mind over much. So if you want to start an army or just buff up your forces, you’ll be hard-pressed to find more value than this box.
