Another week has passed that means we got another round of pre-releases from Games Workshop. This time around we get another set collection for Blood Bowl and a new model for the Adeptus Titanicus.
Here’s a quick rundown of the new models, new rules, and everything in between.
Adeptus Titanicus The Horus Heresy
This is a gargantuan war machine which is one of the most common and destructive classes of Battle Titan. The Reaver is armed with devastating weapons and able to crush enemies under its tread by the score.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Reaver Battle Titan for use in games of Adeptus Titanicus. It is armed with several weapon options – a laser blaster and gatling blaster are available, with a power fist that can be modelled either clenched or open. Above the carapace – of which 2 are included, 1 blank – resides an apocalypse missile launcher, either side of which are the shoulder pads (3 sets are included, 1 set loyalist, 1 set traitor and 1 set blank.) Further modelling options include the knee pads – 2 of these are blank, with 1 depicting the symbol of the Opus Titanicus.
This kit comes as 122 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 105mm Oval base along with a decal sheet – this features heraldry for the following Legios: Gryphonicus, Fureans, Astorium, Atarus, and Mortis.
Blood Bowl: Nurgle’s Rotters
A great collection of Nurgle products sure to please any Blood Bowl coach, this is bundle is filled with the following goodies:
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Nurgle’s Rotters, a particularly foul and dripsome Nurgle team for use in games of Blood Bowl. Appropriately putrid and ‘orrible, each player is mutated and pus-covered with exposed guts, claws and warts featuring heavily. The team consists of 4 Bloaters, 2 Pestigor, and 6 Rotters.
There are a host of extras in the kit – 2 turn markers, 2 double-sided score coins in the shape of Nurgle’s icon and 4 balls: 2 of these are being chomped upon by a cheeky Nurgling, and 2 have… something… emerging from them, all gribbly teeth and eldritch horror. Supplied with 12 32mm Blood Bowl bases, a 1,000,000 GP roster, and a Nurgle transfer sheet.
Nurgle’s Rotters Dice
The perfect companion to your Nurgle Blood Bowl team, this set of handsome(ish) dice in clear green with orange markings, featuring a Nurgle icon in place of the 6, includes:
- 3 Blood Bowl Block dice
- 2 6-sided dice
- 1 8-sided die
- 1 16-sided die
Nurgle Pitch & Dugout
A double-sided card Blood Bowl pitch, complete with matching dug-outs, this is the perfect place for your Nurgle teams to play. One side represents a beautiful flowering Garden of Nurgle, with plants and trees gaily littering the pitch and maggots cheerily infesting the end zones. Meanwhile, the other side is looking like it’s ‘self-fertilised,’ which in turn bringing far more hazards in place, with betoothed plants, pools of slime and a great big horrible tentacle waving about.
The pitch is made to the same specifications as the board included with the Blood Bowl boxed game, and includes rules for play with the sticky plant life trying to hinder your match.
