Games workshop are also releasing a very tasty sounding “Warlords Edition” that includes cards for each of the battleplans along with tokens and markers! We will certainly be refreshing the GW site at 10am Saturday to try and get hold of one of these!

With the new allies mechanic GW are also releasing a range of boxes containing approximately 400 points designed to slot into an existing 2k points army! Some brilliant looking stuff here, and I’m very interested into seeing how much these retail for!

Mortarion Approaches

The rumour mills have working overtime since the plastic release of Roboute Guilliman and Magnus. What other Primarchs could be on the horizon?

Well, Games Workshop have lifted the lid on who is returning to the battlefield, to lead the fight against the Imperium….

Death Guard's Mortarion certainly looks the part, check out those wings!! If you've been following our Instagram account you'll know that fellow Sprues and Brews creator Matt has been building and painting a force of Death Guard.
