Codex Space Marines

Released today and I have my copy.

Codex Space Marines

The Space Marines of the Adeptus Astartes are Humanity’s ultimate warriors, dedicated to the defence of the Emperor and the Imperium of Man. They are barely human at all, but superhuman, having been made superior, in all respects, to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training. Organised into small independent armies called Chapters, their unswerving loyalty is to the Emperor of Mankind and no other. This 144-page Warhammer 40,000 Codex contains all the rules you’ll need to field a Space Marine army, as well as detailed background information, bestiary, accompanying artwork and ‘Eavy Metal showcase.

It’s huge book and full of pages!

So is it worth £18?


Maybe I am just getting old. Maybe I am as it only seemed like yesterday when I bought the last Codex!

Space Marines on sale at UK GamesDay

Space Marine Drop Pod
According to the Games Workshop website, a variety of Space Marines stuff will be on sale at the UK GamesDay on the 14th September including the new Drop Pod.

Dropping from orbit, the brand new pre-release Space Marines will be in extremely limited supply. That said, we’ll be taking 2000 brand new plastic Drop Pods – an amazing 89-piece plastic kit – not to mention the all-new Thunderfire Cannon and the all-important Codex: Space Marines.

We’ll also be taking supplies of the new Sternguard and Vanguard Veterans, the mighty all-plastic Land Raider Redeemer / Crusader, as well as the many new Special Characters including Captain Sicarius of the Ultramarines and the Chapter Master of the Crimson Fists, Pedro Kantor.

Hmm tempted.
