Warhammer World is the place to be, with five extensive exhibition halls all packed with exciting battlescapes and display cabinets, to the three stores equipped with everything to fulfil your hobby needs. We are the one stop shop for all things Warhammer.
This week we have a very big celebration indeed.
The 30th Anniversary of Space Marines.
Who can believe it? I was only a year old when Space Marines first hit the shelves. Look at how far we have come, from the very first ‘Imperial’ Space Marine to the vast armies of the Adeptus Astartes in their many marks of armour and heraldry.
This weekend is going to be one to remember. So let us get to the point of what you can pick up in our stores this weekend.
Citadel Store: Space Marines!
Imperial Space Marine
Iconic soldiers of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Space Marines are recognisable to all. Slamming down from orbit in Drop Pods and unleashing hell onto the enemies of the Imperium, they are found in every corner of the galaxy, heroically battling evil wherever it is found in a desperate struggle for the very survival of mankind itself. As long as a single Space Marine draws breath, the Imperium of Man stands inviolable.
This is a strictly limited product available in the Citadel Store so make sure you get down as soon as you can on Saturday to get yours before they sell out. For £18 you can own this piece of Games Workshop history.
Index Astartes: Apocrypha
This is a beautiful book for anyone who loves our hobby. 136 Pages of articles from some of the earliest White Dwarfs and venerable lore from the early days of Warhammer 40 000. I cannot get over how stunning this book is and seeing how far the Space Marines have come in 30 years. I wonder what will happen to them in another 30 years?
Again this book is a while stocks last book so make sure you grab one while you can!
A Host of Other Space Marine Goodies
Let us not forget that there will be a plethora of other new releases for those iconic Space Marines this week, including really awesome boxed sets to add to your collection and a brand new Codex Supplement. Make sure you folks get down here and take part of our wicked weekend. And while you are here don’t forget to get your photo taken with our 30th Anniversary Space Marine. We already have!
We are also hosting a great little painting challenge for you as well as having Cake. So you don’t want to miss out do you?
Forge World Store: The Sons of Magnus
To make sure the Forge World store is not left out of this iconic weekend we thought we would grant you access to a brand new Contemptor Dreadnought and some lovely looking upgrades for the Thousand Sons
No longer able to fight unaided, the still-living mortal remains of a Legions greatest warriors may be interred within a Contemptor Dreadnought to continue their service. A large number of these advanced Dreadnoughts were destroyed during the dark days of The Horus Heresy, but some survived and are still in service in the Space Marine Chapters and Chaos Space Marine warbands of the 41st Millennium.
Along with the Contemptor we have the new Achean pattern upgrades.
Whilst standard patterns of armour were shared across the Legiones Astartes, variations on these templates surfaced in most Legions. Achean pattern armour arose as a local variation of Mk IV ‘Maximus’ battle plate, produced for the Thousand Sons Legion by the forges local to Prospero.
Both of these are available this weekend here in Store.
Black Library: Blades of Damocles
No weekend, especially this weekend, would be complete without a mighty tale about our heroic Space Marines. So here is Blades of Damocles to keep your thirst sated.
It is the 41st millennium, and an upstart alien empire has emerged on the Eastern Fringe. After a few skirmishes to retake human worlds from these blue-skinned invaders, the time has come to strike against the so-called Tau Empire. At the forefront of the Damocles Crusade stand the Ultramarines, commanded by Captain Atheus, the Chapter’s Lord Executioner. With his loyal sergeants Numitor and Sicarius by his side, Atheus vows to exterminate the aliens… But the cunning xenos commanders, Farsight and Shadowsun, have other plans.
This weekend will definately be one to remember, be sure to get yourself down to Warhammer World and be apart of the Celebration!
