Space Mariens Heroes (S2)
Hello again everyone !!
Space Marines in booster pack from japan are coming back for a second run !
This time it look like it's a Terminator unit.
Does that mean a smaller run (5 models) or 10 Terminators in one or two unit?
From warhammer community :
We know loads of fans based outside of Japan have been keen to get their hands on the Space Marine Heroes, and we’re currently looking into the feasibility of this. Make sure to like and follow the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page to receive any updates as they happen, delivered straight to your newsfeed.
Japanese Space Marines Heroes review (full set!)
Hello everyone !!
I'd like to share a post Christopher sent us.
It's an amazing review of the Space marines heroes (the japan ones).
From this point onward it's him speaking :
Recently I got hold of a Japanese Space Marine Heroes display and since
there is a big interest in the Space Marine Heroes I wanted to share
every information I have with the community.
The display is Beautiful. As you can see, it looks like a Rhino. It
contains 24 Space Marine Heroes miniatures. Important detail: You get a
pair of every miniature pro display, so if you are in Japan and want to
buy all twelve Space Marine Heroes, try to get a sealed display, because
otherwise there is the possibility that you won’t get the whole
collection. The Box says „Series 1“, so maybe there will be a Series 2,
The Heroes are clearly a starter product. They are snap fit, come with a
custom scenic base and it is possible to remove the parts from the sprue
without a knife, though I would recommend using some tools for doing
this. The quality is standard GW quality. The details are nice and
crisp. The poses are quite dynamic with a few exceptions. Every model
has the option for a head with helmet or without, so there will be some
heads to customise other Space Marines or if you go full Warhammer
40.000 nerd I guess you could paint both so you could interchange them.
The Squad is an Ultramarine squad fluffwise, but since the chapter
details are not modelled, you can paint them in any way you deem fit.
The boxes do not contain any decal transfer sheets.
Each box contains an assembly guide for the miniature as well as a card
of the specific Space Marine. It has some stats like Firepower or
Armour, which do not fit with the 40k rules. I guess this is mostly to
give children which start with the hobby some idea to compare the
miniatures or make up some game to trade their double Miniatures. The
back of each card contains the background for the brother in question,
which I cannot read, cause its Japanese, but google translate ist really
good in translating it.
Each Space Marine Hero costs 750 Yen which is 5,40 €, so it is clearly a
starter product. The Display would cost you 18.000 Yen, which is 137,- €
but I don’t know if they would sell you a whole display in Japan.
The Squad consists of:
Brother-Sergeant Sevastus, who is equipped with a Grav-Pistol and a
Brother Dolor, who has a quite dynamic pose looking at his auspex
Brother Calistus, who is equipped with a Flamer
Brother Remus, who is equipped with a Rocket Launcher
Brother Castus, who is your standard Bolter Space marine
Brother Titus, who looks a little bit like the iron hands guy from Kill
Team Cassius since he is reloading his Bolter in the same pose
Brother Gaiun, who is a standard Bolter Space Marine running
Brother Venial, who throws a grenade
Brother Garus, who is shooting his Bolt Pistol
Brother Aethor, who runs and looks from the Pose like the Space Wolf
from Kill Team Cassius
There are two more Space Marine Heroes, Brother Toriad with a Heavy
Bolter and Brother Promethor with a Plasma Gun. I guess their purpose is
to be able to exchange the Heavy and Special Weapon within the squad.
Bonus: GW wouldn’t be GW if there wouldn’t be a 13th miniature which is
not contained in the display. Brother-Captain Thassarius is on the back
of every assembly guide. There is some Japanese printed above him which
says „Limited edition miniature“. There is no information on how to get
him. I could only speculate that there will be a special Japanese event
where they sell him or there will be maybe a scheme like get all of
series one and you will be allowed to buy the brother captain. But to
make it clear: I have no information on that and can only speculate.
I’ve also made a Video of some of the Boxes where I explain what I wrote
down here. Please excuse the shitty quality, since I’m not doing this
normally. If you like the Video and want to see all of the Space Marine
Heroes please let me know.
If you have questions write them in the comments, I’ll try to answer them.
If you want to use information from the video or from this post, please
be so nice to link this article or the video.
I hope you have fun with the information I could provide. Since GW said,
they will release the Space Marine Heroes in the rest of the world too
there is some hope that you will be able to get them yourself some day.
P.s.: Please do not contact me if you want to get Space Marine Heroes
since I have no means to get them.
He made a video too : HERE
Thx a lot Chris for writing this !!
It's not something we usualy do (guest writer) but if you have something good to share and wrote an article about it send us a mail ! :D
Space Marine Heroes in Japan
Do you remember when we were talking about marines in booster ?
This new series of individually collectable miniatures have been designed especially for Japan and there will be more information about how they’ll be available very soon.
Each of these iconic models depicts a Space Marine from a Tactical Squad with a unique slant – there is a mix of weapons in there, as well as a comms specialist, marksman, grenadier and a Sergeant.
At the moment, these models will only be available in Japan, but don’t worry, the rest of you will have no shortage of new Space Marines over the coming weeks either.
Space Marine Heroes
Hello again !
Remember when were talking about exclusive space marines in japan. It seem they have been released.
They are marines booster (yea like magic) you get one random marines and you have 12 to collect.
Price is 1750 (15€)
I wonder if something like this could happen in EU/USA, i am not sure we can compete with their urge to collect all sort of models/phone tag/ key tag / even sticker.
thx @ allgamer
