Warhammer 40K T'AU Empire Pathfinder Team
Light reconnaissance units, Pathfinder Teams are the eyes and ears of their Commander in a way no drone can yet emulate. A Pathfinder's foremost role is not to engage the enemy, but instead to operate ahead of their comrades, close to their foe, to accurately scout the enemy.
There are 10 Pathfinders in this kit, and they can be built in a variety of ways – there are different leg options, for kneeling, crouching or standing, as well as different head options. They sport lighter recon armour, which covers their torso, shoulders, knees and elbows, and they wear the similar long, elegant helmets to Fire Warriors. They can carry a selection of weapons including pulse carbines, rail rifle, and ion rifles. The kit includes an enormous Recon Drone, which can be mounted on a Devilfish tank (not included), and which comes armed with a burst cannon. The box set also features a Pulse Accelerator Drone, with a four-pronged device underneath the circular disc, and the Grav-inhibitor Drone that features an orb underneath.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 137 components with which to make 10 T'au Pathfinders, a Pulse Accelerator Drone, a Grav-inhibitor Drone and a Recon Drone.
These kits comes supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.

Warhammer Genestealer Cults: Atalan Jackals
Atalan Jackals are fourth generation Neophytes who form the outriders of their gene-sect. They roam the corners of the host planet in search of new regions for their cult to infest.
Atalan Jackals provide fast-moving firepower and rapid assault support for your Genestealer Cults army. Capable of traversing the battlefield with incredible speed, they're great for exploiting weak points in your opponent's line or snatching key objectives.
This set builds one squad of 5 Atalan Jackals – four on dirtcycles, accompanied by an Atalan Wolfquad. You'll be able to customise your squads with a host of melee weapons, blasting charges and ranged weapons, letting you kit the unit out for a range of battlefield roles. Likewise, the Wolfquad features options for a mining laser, Atalan incinerator or heavy stubber, offering you even more flexibility. All arms in the kit are interchangeable with one another, and you'll have a huge choice heads and accessories to individualize your models.
This kit is supplied in 89 plastic components and contains 4x 60mm oval bases and 1x 60mm round base.
Warhammer Genestealer Cults: Achilles Ridgerunner
Achilles Ridgerunners range into deadly frontier environments, their pilots scanning for promising resource deposits and communicating their location back to base. Though well equipped to engage enemy scouts and outriders, the Achilles Ridgerunner's true qualities lie in its ability to rove ahead of the cult's main forces, scouting out potential ambush sites and routes of ingress into the foe's territory.
Achilles Ridgerunners are fast-moving buggies capable of carrying a significant amount of ordnance. They can also operate as a vital support vehicle for units of Atalan Jackals, giving that unit even more manoeuvrability. Equipped with two heavy stubbers, it can also take either a heavy mining laser, a heavy mortar or a missile launcher, providing any Genestealer Cults player with useful toolbox for dealing with any enemy.
This pack contains a single plastic Achilles Ridgerunner armed with two heavy stubbers, and a choice of either a heavy mining laser, a heavy mortar, or a missile launcher. It comes with a host of other options and optional wargear, and a single 120mm oval base.
Warhammer Flamers of Tzeentch
Bounding in a disturbing fashion, Flamers of Tzeentch spring toward the foe spouting wyrdflame, the warpfire of Chaos itself. The supernatural flames writhe and leer, but most of all they burn, scorching the foe’s flesh, bones and soul. Yet the Changer of Ways is fickle, and fires that have burnt out may leap to life again, or even heal the afflicted.
This multi-part plastic kit contains components necessary to build 3 Flamers of Tzeentch, multi-headed spellcasters with warpfire billowing from their terrifying toothed arms. One model can be assembled as a Pyrocaster, seemingly more of fire than flesh.
This kit comes in 36 components, and is supplied with 3 Citadel 32mm Round bases.
Warhammer Apetus Mechanicus: Onager Dunecraw
Owing its origin to the lost knowledge of millennia, the Onager Dunecrawler is based on the Mars Universal Land Engine; itself inspired by the bad-tempered beasts of burden that transported their masters across Holy Terra in ancient times. The Onager Dunecrawler, rather than being a mere people-carrier, is absolutely brimming with advanced, powerful weaponry capable of reducing worlds to wastelands.
A light walking tank, the Onager Dunecrawler features four crab-like legs with optional armour plating. The armoured cabin and reactor are complemented by a huge variety of modelling options, with searchlights, smoke launchers, cognis manipulators and mindscanner probes; and the cupola can be modelled closed or open, featuring a Princeps wielding a heavy stubber. You get a massive amount of configuration and customisation available even before applying weaponry.
On the subject of weaponry, included in the box are four variants: an eradication beamer, twin phosphor blasters with sensors, a neutron laser featuring a coaxial cognis heavy stubber or an Icarus array - an awesome anti-air assault package comprising twin autocannons, a gatling flak launcher, an armour-piercing missile launcher and a radar dish.
Included with this 119-component multi-part plastic kit, making one Onager Dunecrawler, is a small Adeptus Mechanicus transfer sheet and a 130mm round base.
Warhammer 40K Necrons Heavy Destroyer
The Destroyer Cults think nothing of sacrificing their physical forms to optimise themselves for slaughter. Lokhust Heavy Destroyers skim to battle upon repulsor-sled bodies, their upper limbs bound into gauss destructors or enmitic exterminators with which they decimate their foes with devastating blasts from afar.
Whether you're looking to scythe through infantry or crack your enemy's biggest tanks with ease, you'll want a Lokhust Heavy Destroyer. This fast-moving gun platform pairs superbly with other Destroyer units or as a standalone for an army which just needs a little extra firepower.
This kit builds one Lokhust Heavy Destroyer. Push-fit construction means you won't need any glue to build it, and the set comes with your choice of heads and deadly weapons. It is supplied in 33 plastic components and comes with a 60mm round base.
Warhammer Black Templars: Bayard's Revenge
his multipart plastic kit allows you to build a Commemorative Series model capturing the Emperor's Champion, Bayard of the Black Templars, as he buries his Black Sword in the chest of an Ork Nob. This diorama encapsulates the grim darkness of the far future in fine form, a treat for all fans of Warhammer 40,000. Festooned with details, including a huge variety of different textures and materials, an option for a stylized helmet or bare head, plus a fully sculpted display base, this model represents the perfect opportunity to show off the painting skills you've devoloped over your years in the Warhammer hobby.
This set comprises 17 plastic components and comes with a Citadel 50mm Round Base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Warhammer - Astra Militarum Cadian Heavy Weapon Squad
The Tempestus Scions are amongst the finest human warriors in the galaxy. They are fanatically dedicated to the act of following their orders - even if it may result in their own deaths - and often complete missions so dangerous that they would be deemed suicidal for a regular guardsman.
This box contains everything you need to make a 5 man Militarum Tempestus Command squad. You have the option to use a combination of 10 heads (5 with respirators and 5 with berets) and ammo pouches, knives, grenades and canteens to fully customise your miniatures.
By building the Militarum Tempestus Command Squad you can create a host of miniatures that represent the very best Scions in the regiment.
You have the option to build a Tempestor Prime who has a great coat with a servo skull on the shoulder and a knife clutched in his right hand. You can then choose to equip a command staff or a bolt pistol in his left hand. In addition to the Tempestor Prime, the command squad includes: a Medic with an apothecary tool in his right hand and a first aid kit in left, a Standard Bearer with embossed standard (which is the same motif found on the front of the Taurox Prime) and a Vox-caster.
This kit can also be assembled as a Tempestus Scions Squad. It is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Thin Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
Warhammer Space Chaos Marines - Games Workshop
Not even the Space Marines are safe from the lure of Chaos. Whether they hail from the dark days of the Horus Heresy or turned traitor more recently, these baleful warriors combine their gene-given gifts with dark blessings and malefic sorceries, transformed by years of battle into fearless, superhuman reavers.
Chaos Space Marines are the core of any Chaos army. Equally at home shredding opponents at range with bolter fire as they are in bloody melee, these guys can be geared up for pretty much any purpose you want on the battlefield. Combined with your choice of Marks of Chaos, Chaos Icons and deadly weaponry, they've got a place in any of your army lists.
This kit builds 10 Chaos Space Marines, with your choice of weapons. The set is absolutely packed with optional extras, giving you the choice of arming every member of the squad with close-combat weapons and pistols or ranged wargear. You’ll be able to add your choice of plasma gun, flamer, meltagun, heavy bolter and missile launcher. Optional components let you build up to two Aspiring Champions, giving you the freedom to build the set as a single squad of 10 or two squads of 5. A Chaos icon, interchangeable components and optional grenades offer you even more choice, ensuring no two units need look alike. The set is even designed to be compatible with the Havocs, allowing you to mix and match heavy weapons for even more choice.
This set is supplied in 144 plastic components and contains 10 x 32mm round bases.
