Now for some more great news – pre-orders are back on! The first batch includes Psychic Awakening: Engine War, the new Adeptus Mechanicus units releasing alongside it, and loads of Black Library fiction. Let’s dig in.
Psychic Awakening: Engine War
The latest entry in the ongoing Psychic Awakening series updates no fewer than four factions with new rules, background material, and missions to play out the events. The focus has been on the Adeptus Mechanicus, because they have a slew of new models, but this book also covers Imperial Knights, Chaos Knights, and Chaos Daemons – including the latest units for Slaanesh!
This is a must-have tome for collectors of Adeptus Mechanicus, Knights of all kinds, and Chaos armies. Speaking of which, the sumptuously appointed collector’s edition is the best way to show your loyalty. It includes the same stunning black-on-black presentation we’ve seen with the rest of the Psychic Awakening books, plus the four short stories that were first published here printed inside!
The book will also be available in standard hardback, plus an ePub edition for easy reading and gaming on the go. No matter which one you get, this book has all the rules you’ll need to use the massive wave of new Adeptus Mechanicus releases, amongst other things!
If you order either the collector’s edition or the standard hardback, we’ll even throw in a pair of datasheet cards for Syll’Esske, the Vengeful Allegiance and Shalaxi Helbane!
First seen in Kill Team Theta-7 Acquisitus box, these Tech-Priests are now available on their own. Their bodies are bloated with bizarre machinery, allowing them to bend the Motive Force to their will. They float across the battlefield, enhancing nearby troops and unleashing baleful energies with magnarail lances and transonic cannons.
Of course, a leader needs troops to enact their strategies…
Serberys Raiders and Sulphurhounds
Riding freakish quadrupedal constructs into battle, these soldiers of the Machine God operate as forward recon and linebreakers. The kit allows you to build three models in one of two ways. Sulphurhounds dual wield pistols, and their mounts are augmented with the ability to breath flaming blasts of corrosive gas. Raiders, on the other (probably bionic) hand, fire galvanic carbines with deadly accuracy before closing in to cut down their quarry with curved cavalry sabres.
Pteraxii Sterylizors and Skystalkers
Flying shock troops equipped with articulated wing-limbs and clawed feet, the Pteraxii box builds five of either the close-range Sterylizors, gripping white-hot phosphor torches, or mid-range Skystalkers, wielding withering flechette carbines. Not only do they offer Adeptus Mechanicus armies a variety of new tactical options, and they’re sure to be a hit with kit bashers and converters – this box is loaded with cool bits.
This incredible kit builds one of three variations on a new flying chassis. The Transvector ferries elite troops to the front and offers fire support, the Fusilave is a ground attack aircraft with a bomb rack, and the Stratoraptor is a dedicated gunship. All of them share the same unusual design, with huge mechanical bat wings, articulated landing-limbs and a distinctive curved cockpit.
Start Collecting! Adeptus Mechanicus
If all these new releases have you excited to join the cause of Mars or grow your existing forces, you now have a new Start Collecting! set. This box includes ten Skitarii Vanguard or Rangers (or five of each), a Tech-Priest Enginseer and a mighty Skorpius Dunerider. The floaty tank can also be built as a Skorpius Disintegrator, so you might as well get two boxes to make the most of it. This is an incredible set that gives the Adeptus Mechanicus an array of options to start a new army or expand an existing one.
Keep an eye out for more previews on the new pre-order goodies throughout the week. We expect many of you will be eager to get your hands on the first new releases in some time, and our shipping department will be doing everything they can to get your models out by the weekend of release. With new safety measures in place, and an increased demand for online shopping, your order might take just a little longer than usual to get to you. We’d ask for your patience as everyone continues to work safely and as quickly as possible under the circumstances.
