Orikan the Diviner Returns to Warhammer 40,000 in ‘Crusade: Pariah Nexus

The Warhammer 40,000 universe is set to expand with a new miniature of Orikan the Diviner, a master of mysticism and astromancy from the Necron race, over a decade since his debut.

Orikan’s return coincides with the release of “Crusade: Pariah Nexus,” a narrative supplement featuring a fresh campaign in the Pariah Nexus sector. As conflict brews with the Silent King’s forces, Orikan prepares for an impending apocalypse he has foreseen.

The expansion will enrich the game with 15 new missions and upgrades, while also updating the lore with significant developments and unexpected plot twists.

Dark Angels’ Dread Asmodai Rises: New Miniature and Codex Updates

The world of Warhammer 40,000 is poised for another thrilling update as Asmodai, the feared Master of Repentance of the Dark Angels, is primed for release in an imposing new miniature form.

Known for his relentless pursuit of the Fallen, Asmodai’s reputation for extracting confessions is legendary, and his arrival signals a new chapter for the Dark Angels following the Primarch’s return.

Armed with the sword Catechist and the crozius Censure, Asmodai inspires his brethren while instilling dread in his adversaries. This formidable figure also offers customization options, including different headgear and backpacks that emit mysterious smoke.

Asmodai’s miniature will debut alongside the anticipated Codex: Dark Angels, marking a significant update to the Warhammer 40,000 series. With several codexes already launched, fans can look forward to the upcoming Codex: Necrons and Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus, and the distant sounds of an Ork horde suggest even more excitement on the horizon.

Deathwing Knights Teleport Strike into Warhammer 40,000

The feared Deathwing Knights have spectacularly arrived in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, not with the usual destruction, but as an elite addition to the Dark Angels’ pool of miniatures.

These paragons of war don armor and wield weapons to crush their adversaries, now available in a versatile new Terminator Squad kit.

The kit provides ample variety, allowing commanders to equip their Knights with either swords or maces and select from a range of hooded or helmed heads. The set also includes a teleport homer and a Watcher in the Dark, complete with a censer, to mark their battlefield arrival.

MKVI Assault Marines: The Vanguard of the 31st Millennium’s Warfare

The latest advance in the Warhammer 40,000 universe has been unveiled at the World Championships: the MKVI Assault Squad, a unit that revolutionizes rapid battlefield engagement.

These Legionaries, donning the advanced Corvus power armour equipped with cutting-edge jump packs, are now the apex of mobility and aggression, favored by the swiftest of Legions.

Capable of covering ground with a 12-inch move range when their jump packs are activated, they specialize in seizing objectives deep in hostile territory.

The new kit features 10 plastic Assault Marines with a range of dynamic poses and essential accessories. Combat shields are provided for each marine, and the Assault Sergeant comes with several customization options, including various headgear, a melta bomb, and lethal lightning claws.

These units are designed to be fully compatible with existing Legion MKVI upgrades, and they play a crucial role in the Angel’s Wrath Rite of War, an airborne strategy available to any Legion.

Palanite Enforcers Gear Up with the New Tauros Venator ATV Kit

In a showcase of technological might, the World Championships have introduced the latest addition to the Necromunda universe: the Tauros Venator ATV, now available in a highly detailed plastic kit.

As the bastions of law in the hive spires, the Palanite Enforcers are equipped with the finest gear, and the Tauros stands out as their vehicle of choice for patrolling the perilous ash wastes.

Renowned for its robustness, the Tauros has become a staple for the Astra Militarum’s frontier operations, with the Venator variant being a heavier, six-wheeled model equipped with a turret for added firepower.

This all-terrain vehicle combines high-speed enforcement with impressive armament options, including twin heavy stubbers or concussion cannons, and features a Dedicated Gunner for optimal mobility and attack capabilities.

The Tauros Venator kit is rich with details, showcasing the iconic Enforcer armour and customization options that match the aesthetic of the Palanite Ranger crew.

For those eager to integrate this formidable vehicle into their gameplay, the accompanying Ruins of Jardlan expansion book provides full rules and expands on the lore of the Necromunda setting.

Night Lords’ Nemesis Claws Emerge as a New Terror in Kill Team

The Night Lords, infamous for their cruelty, have descended upon Kill Team. These masters of fear, particularly the Nemesis Claws kill teams, are adept at psychological warfare, sowing chaos among enemies with their macabre appearance and bloodthirsty tactics.

Their unique ability, ‘In Midnight Clad,’ allows them to use the shadows to their advantage, launching deadly ambushes from concealment.

The new kit adds a horrifying array of options to the Chaos Space Marines base of minis, including the Ventrilokar icon bearer, a new operative with a totem crafted from a vanquished Space Marine, able to mimic the voices of the consumed.

This chilling addition to the Kill Team promises to test the mettle of players against the galaxy’s most feared legion.
