Astraeus Super Heavy Tank
Via Warhammer Community
"An enormous hull mounts a devastating range of defensive and offensive systems. The main weapons of the Astraeus Super-heavy tank are a pair of macro-accelerator cannons, coupled with sponson-mounted las-rippers or plasma eradicators. The macro-accelerator cannons are particularly powerful, firing 12 shots with -2 AP and 3 Damage apiece!
Meanwhile, layered void shields protect this vehicle against even the most dedicated attacks, including Mortal Wounds, while the enhanced repulsor field is a powerful deterrent to enemy assault units – firstly, reducing their charge ranges, and secondly, literally crushing them with waves of gravitic force when they get close!
Unlike its little brother, the Astraeus Super-heavy Tank doesn’t have any transport capacity – instead, this colossal machine is dedicated to destruction alone. While there are few targets that can stand up to one of the Astraeus Super-heavy Tank’s furious fusillades, it particularly excels at shooting down Flyers. With the Steel Behemoth rule and Power of the Machine Spirit, this war machine can fire on the move, or even when locked in close combat, making it a surprisingly flexible and mobile unit for its size.
It’s not just a triumph of engineering in the lore of the 41st Millennium, either – this is one of the most advanced Forge World kits we’ve ever released. Every single gun (right down to the tiny storm bolter mounted on the vehicle’s rear!) can be moved and repositioned, while there are even options for which sponson weapons you can attach to the vehicle. Additionally, the Astraeus kit features a custom transparent flying stand designed to support the weight of this model while keeping it absolutely secure.
From a collector’s standpoint, if you’re looking for an army of exclusively Primaris Space Marines, the Astraeus makes for a fantastic centrepiece model, equivalent to other iconic Space Marine vehicles like the Thunderhawk.
You won’t have to wait long to pick up this massive war machine for yourself, with the Astraeus Super-heavy Tank – alongside free downloadable rules – available to buy soon."

30 Years of 40k - Primaris Veteran Sergeant
Howdy Guys and Girls :)
40k turns 30 this September and there is a new Primaris Veteran Sergeant event model to celebrate it - via warhammer community:
"The 30th Anniversary Primaris Veteran Sergeant is a testament to several generations of Warhammer 40,000. Clad in Mk X Tacticus armour like his brethren, the model is packed with little details to tie it to its predecessors, including a Crux Terminatus, a sheathed sword and a marksman’s honour, as well as the choice of two different heads – helmeted or unhelmeted. This guy is going to look right at home leading your Primaris Space Marines, making for a characterful alternative to the standard Sergeant, and you’ll be able to customise yours to fit whatever Chapter is your favourite. Whether or not you play Space Marines, this collector’s edition Primaris Veteran Sergeant is a great way to celebrate your part in making Warhammer 40,000 what it is today.
You’ll be able to pre-order your own Primaris Veteran Sergeant on the 2nd of September, and he’ll be available in stores a week after that. In the meantime, rules for Veteran Sergeants (and the rest of the Space Marines) can be found in Codex: Space Marines. Happy Birthday to Us!"

Codex: Space Marines is a 208-page hardback containing a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for all Space Marines collectors.
-Redemptor dread (look very cool with the 360°)
It comes with a choice of gatling cannon or plasma incinerator on the right arm, with a Redemptor fist and heavy flamer support weapon or gatling cannon on the left, 2 chest-mounted fragstorm grenade launchers or storm bolters and a carapace-mounted Icarus rocket pod for aerial denial.
-Reavers box of 10 (Box content is just crazy !)
The models can be assembled as either a 10-man squad, a squad of 9 Reivers with a Sergeant or 2 separate 5-man squads, each with a Sergeant of their own. Each has an impressive selection of weapon options; 10 heavy bolt pistols, 12 bolt carbines and 14 combat knives are included, with the loadout options being carbine, pistol and carbine or pistol and combat knife. 2 of the sets of arms for combat knives feature a communications array on the vambrace, designed for the Sergeants. The bolt carbines each feature foregrips and curved mags for that tactical look, and 2 of them are modelled in the middle of reloading. Each model can also take a grapnel launcher – 10 are included in holsters, with a further 4 to be held in the right hand.
Each model can also feature grav-chutes – 20 fins are included, 10 for each side of the Reivers’ backpacks. They have plenty of helmet options, too – 10 helmets featuring their unique skull design, 10 with the top removed and the lower half remaining and 4 Sergeant-specific bare heads. Each chest plate is decorated with a skull and crossed dagger motif.
The Primaris Reivers come as 228 components, and are supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.
-Agressors box of 3. (everyone favorite ^^)
You have the option of assembling 3 Aggressors or 2 Aggressors and a Sergeant; a host of options are available either way. There are 6 heads for the standard Aggressors, with respirators on the mask of those using flamestorm gauntlets, and 2 more specific heads for the Sergeant. The flamestorm-wielding Aggressors have their own shoulder pads, featuring larger blast shielding to protect them from the immense operating temperatures of their weapons. Also included are reliquaries and purity seals, with special examples for Sergeants featuring extra skulls.
The Primaris Aggressors come as 107 components, and are supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
Codex Space Marines

Review of the new Codex Space Marines by "A Tapletop Gamer's Diary":
Edit : From blood of kitten
Come with auto hellstorm gauntlets and fragstorm grenade launchers. Can replace both with flamestorm gauntlets. Hellstorm guantlets are assault 6 18″ range bolters. Fragstorm grenade launchers are assault D6 18″ bolters. The flamestorm gauntlets are assault 2d6 flamers. In melee both gauntlets are powerfists. A unit of 6 can be set into 2 combat squads of 3. They can fire all weapons twice if didn’t move on their turn (including overwatch). They also don’t suffer any penalty to their hit rolls for advancing and firing assault weapons.
Can replace bolt carbines with combat knives. Grav-chutes give normal deep strike. Grapnel launchers don’t count any vertical distances when determining how far they can move that turn. They can also go into reserve and arrive more then 9″ from the enemy and within 6″ of any table edge.
Comes with a heavy onslaught gatling cannon, heavy flamer, icarus rocket pod, 2 fragstorm grenade launchers and a redemptor fist. Can replace heavy flamer with onslaught gatling cannon, heavy onslaught gatling cannon with macro plasma incinerator and fragstorm grenade launchers with storm bolters.
Heavy Onslaught gatling cannon: Heavy 12, S5, -1 1 damage
Macro Plasma Incinerator: Heavy D6, S 8 (9), -4, 1 (2) damage. If supercharged, takes 1 mortal wound for each 1 to hit.
Icarus Rocket Pod: Heavy D3, 24″, S7, -1 1 damage. +1 to hit against flyers, -1 to hit against everything else.
Onslaught gatling cannon: 24″, Heavy 6 S5, -1, 1 damage
Redemptor fist is a dreadnought ccw that does D6 damage instead of 3
Went up by 2 power. Can combat squad into 2 3 man squads.
Plasma exterminator: 18″, assault d3 plasma guns.
Went down 4 power. Can take 5-10 and combat squad. All models can replace plasma incinerators with assault plasma incinerators or heavy plasma incinerators. Sergeant can swap bolt pistol for plasma pistol.
Assault Plasma Incinerators: 24″, assault 2 S6 (7), -4, 1 (2) damage. Supercharge kills as normal plasmagun
Heavy Plasma Incinerator: 36″, heavy 1, S8 (9), -4, 1 (2) damage, Supercharge kills as normal plasmagun.
Toughness looks like 8 or 9 (blurry), 16 wounds. 3+ save. Comes with a Heavy Onslaught Gatling Cannon, twin heavy bolter, inbuilt heavy stubber, 2 storm bolters, icarus heavy stubber, 2 krakstorm grenade launchers and auto launchers. (I’m guessing a bit on some of the names. Again, blurry). Can replace twin heavy bolters with twin lascannons, replace heavy onslaught gatling cannon with las-talon, inbuilt heavy stubber with onslaught gatling cannon, storm bolters with fragstorm grenade launchers, icarus heavy stubber with icarus rocket pod, storm bolter or fragstorm grenade launcher and auto launchers with 2 fragstorm grenade launchers. It can take an addition inbuilt heavy stubber.
Many weapons you can look up in the dreadnought entry
Icarus Heavy Stubber: 36″ heavy 3, S4, -1, 1 damage. +1 to hit flyers, -1 against everything else
Inbuilt Heavy Stubber is the same without the flyer bit
Krakstorm grenade launchers: 16″ assault 3 (I think) S6, -1 D3 damage
Las-talon: 24″ heavy 2, S9, -3, D6
Hover tank: distances and ranges are always measured from hull rather than base. Repulsor field: subtract 2″ from charge rolls made when charging a repulsor. Power of the Machine Spirit as normal. Auto launchers are basically smoke launchers. Can transport 10 primaris infantry. Gravis models count as 2. Cannot transport jump pack models.
