WARHAMMER

STK627104

DEATHWATCH LAND RAIDER

$80

Legendary across the Imperium, the Land Raider is a physical manifestation of absolute war worthy of the Deathwatch. Built to concentrate fire at a single point, capable of transporting a Kill Team to its deployment amid a hail of heavy bolter and lascannon fire, the Land Raider is an essential tool in the Deathwatch struggle against the xenos threat. In their Redeemer configurations, they pour forth a blazing inferno of promethium that can burn the hardest exoskeleton and melt steel beams to puddles of liquid metal. Land Raider Crusaders blast away with hurricane bolters and assault cannon. Each are merciless.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components needed to build either a Deathwatch Land Raider, Deathwatch Land Raider Redeemer or Deathwatch Land Raider Crusader. You’ll receive a Land Raider, a Land Raider Crusader Upgrade sprue plus a Deathwatch Upgrade Frame – this contains 10 Space Marine shoulder pads and 2 Terminator Armour shoulder pads with Deathwatch insignia, a Sergeant chest plate, 2 variant helmets, a power sword, a small backpack icon and 2 large vehicle icons, meaning you’ll have plenty of spare bits with which to assemble your perfect Kill Team!

STK627104

DEATHWATCH WATCH CAPTAIN

$25

Space Marine Captains tend to be vicious, efficient killers, leading from the front, as comfortable crushing an alien skull as they are commanding others to do the same. Amplify this efficiency a thousandfold, and you begin to approach the abilities of a Deathwatch Watch Captain. Often his intervention will swing the tide of a battle – the sight of one of these experienced champions taking the fight directly to the foe is truly inspiring, able to impress even the elite Space Marines of the Deathwatch. Respected and admired by those aware of their existence, Watch Captains bear the fate of the Imperium upon their broad shoulders with every decision they make.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble one Watch Captain. You’ll receive a Space Marine Captain, plus a Deathwatch Upgrade Frame – this contains 10 Space Marine shoulder pads and 2 Terminator Armour shoulder pads with Deathwatch insignia, a Sergeant chest plate, 2 variant helmets, a power sword, a small backpack icon and 2 large vehicle icons, meaning you’ll have plenty of spare bits with which to assemble your perfect Kill Team!

STK627104

DEATHWATCH TRANSPORT

$42

The Deathwatch rely on shock tactics and sudden assaults in order to penetrate the lairs of the xenos. Certain vehicles lend themselves better to this style than others, and while the entire range of the Imperium’s vehicles are available to the Deathwatch, the Razorback and Rhino are their choices when pushing deep into the most hostile territory. The Rhino armoured personnel carrier has been a mainstay of Imperial forces for millennia; robust and dauntless, part of its enduring legacy is the ease of field repair as well as its ability to crush all before it. The Razorback is a variant that sacrifices berths in the hold for a merciless heavy weapons turret – both of these are indispensable tools to the Deathwatch and their brutal struggle against the darkness.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble one Deathwatch Transport, in either Rhino or Razorback configuration. You’ll receive a Razorback, assemblable optionally as a Rhino, plus a Deathwatch Upgrade Frame – this contains 10 Space Marine shoulder pads and 2 Terminator Armour shoulder pads with Deathwatch insignia, a Sergeant chest plate, 2 variant helmets, a power sword, a small backpack icon and 2 large vehicle icons, meaning you’ll have plenty of spare bits with which to assemble your perfect Kill Team!

CODEX: DEATHWATCH

$50

Suffer not the alien to live.

The elite amongst the elite, carefully selected and recruited for their exceptional abilities, the Deathwatch are a thin black line, a sentinel that stands between the Imperium and alien threats unimaginable. Always outnumbered – such is the staggering scale of the hordes they face – this noble brotherhood has stood stout against countless invasions, and will face countless more.

Organised into small, elite companies plucked from Space Marine Chapters that have pledged a tithe of their strength in the struggle against the alien, the Deathwatch counts only heroes amongst its ranks. Each member has been hailed as an expert in his field even before his training as a Deathwatch operator has begun. His armour painted the blackest of hues, his Chapter icon intact upon his pauldron as a mark of respect to the Chapter that made him, the Deathwatch Space Marine and his highly-specialised Kill Team descend to the edge of destruction, there to repel whatever dire threat they face.

This 112-page, full-colour hardback Codex features:

comprehensive information on the Deathwatch fortresses that defend the Imperium and the elite Space Marines that man them;

rules for the Deathwatch miniatures, including unique army-building rules for building any of several Kill Teams suited to your play style, your collection and the task at hand – for example, a Furor Kill Team is perfect for brutal close assault with its Terminators, whereas a Venator Kill Team focuses on bikes, perfect for closing down and destroying faster enemies;

3 sets of 6 Tactical Objectives, representing the many different tasks of the Deathwatch;
uniform guides and information on the heraldry of Deathwatch Kill Teams, and a number of their fortresses;
a showcase of stunning Citadel Deathwatch miniatures.

24.99

Cheliax’s largest city, Westcrown, has fallen to the Glorious Reclamation, and the evil adventurers are sent to reclaim the city in the name of Thrune. Armed with the legendary weapon they created from a gold dragon’s head, the nefarious characters confront the Glorious Reclamation’s army and break their siege of a nearby Hellknight citadel. Once the army is defeated, the villains enter Westcrown, where they must undermine the chivalrous knights’ rule of the city. Finally, they must face the founder and Lord Marshal of the Glorious Reclamation to end the rebellion and restore the Thrice-Damned House of Thrune’s rule over the Empire of Cheliax.

The adventure continues the Hell’s Vengeance Adventure Path, a wide-ranging campaign in which evil player characters quell a rebellion to restore order to a wicked empire. Several new monsters, a gazetteer of the city of Westcrown under the Glorious Reclamation, ideas for further adventures beyond the bounds of the Hell’s Vengeance campaign, and the final installment of the Pathfinder’s Journal round out this volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path!

PATHFINDER RPG: HORROR ADVENTURES

44.99

There are things that dwell in the dark places of the world, deep beneath the ground, in long-abandoned crypts, or in musty attics; terrible things that can destroy your body and shatter your mind. Few sane individuals would ever think to seek out such nightmares, but those that are drawn into the darkness often find it infecting them, corrupting them in ways both subtle and gross. Some think that those who die facing off against such horrors are the lucky ones, for the survivors are forever scarred by their experiences. Horror Adventures gives you everything you need to bring these nightmares to your game.

This terrifying 256-page hardcover book will take your game into the darkest reaches, where the dead hunger for the living, alien gods brood in dreams, and madness and death lurk around every corner. There are rules for players and GMs alike, giving heroes a fighting chance against the darkness that threatens to swallow them whole. Characters can take far more than a few hit points of damage, when their very sanity is called into question from witnessing horrors too terrible to comprehend. To face such nightmares, the heroes can take new feats, utilize powerful spells, and even acquire holy relics to aid them. They will need every edge they can get if they plan to survive the secrets of this book.
