The Empire Strikes Back!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

If you haven’t been paying attention to WHFB news lately, the Empire is getting redone along with the Citadel Paint line on April 7th.  I’d been considering starting an Empire army, and now we have an idea what new toys will be available.  Let’s take a look at what’s coming out this weekend:

Imperial Griffon

The new Griffon kit is massive.  You get a 50x100mm base for it, and options to make one of a three Griffons — a generic one for your Empire General, an Amber Wizard on a two-headed Griffon, or the Emperor Karl Franz and his trusty steed, Deathclaw.  The generic Griffon’s gotten beefed up to match the size of the new Imperial breed: T5, S6, and 5 wounds!  This is definitely something to look forward to.

Demigryph Knights

What are they feeding those animals down at the Imperial Zoo?  In addition to the enormous Griffon above, the Empire now gets monstrous cavalry in the form of Demigryph Knights.  These guys boast a 1+ armor save and a Movement value of 8, and count as a special choice in the Empire army (Inner Circle Knights).  In addition to the beautiful models, your trusty new steeds confer a trio of S5, armour-piercing attacks, meaning -3 to Armour Saves.

The Hurricanum, just like all of the carts in this release, are a love it or hate it item.  I personally love it, because it adds some whimsy to the Empire line and is a really unique kit.  The rings are rumored to be completely movable post-assembly.  The actual rules are rumored to be even better: additional power dice, +1 to hit in close combat for nearby units, and the ability to create storms.  At the very least, you know you’ll be getting a ton of cool bits with it!

Luminark of Hysh

The Luminark is the other “wizardmobile” you can make out of the dual kit.  This means that you’ll be using the horse and cart base for either one, but you’ll either end up with a death ray or planetarium left over for conversion or terrain bits!  The Luminark is reportedly a more defensive unit.  It’s rumored to confer a ward save to nearby units, as well as generating extra dispel dice.  The Archimedes-style lens magnifying array on top is said to function as a bolt thrower of sorts.  It’s worth pointing out that either of these kits can be used as a mount for a Wizard, or as their own rare choice.

War Altar

Finally, the War Altar has its own model!  Wait a minute, this looks really familiar.  Can you build this out of the Luminark/Hurricanum kit as well?  No, fortunately there’s no triple-kit.  That would only serve to jack up the prices and leave you with 2 sets of bits for each model you wanted to build.  Instead, GW’s got a separate box that uses the cart sprues as well as the War Altar/Volkmar sprues.  The War Altar is rumored to confer Hatred to nearby units, and boasts a 4+ Ward Save.

And more!

Of course, we can’t forget the half-dozen new characters that GW’s doing in Finecast.  If you were hoping for new Engineers, Captains, Witch Hunters, or Wizards you’re in luck!  GW’s also re-cast a fair number of old metal characters in Finecast, with corresponding price increases.  Stay tuned next week, where we try and take a look into the new Empire book!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

Monster Figure Case received a stock of the Monster Figure Case from GW today.  GW has this listed as a “While Stocks Last” item which means it is a limited release.  Once GW’s stocks are gone, we won’t be able to get it again.  Due to the limited release and large size (orders will probably be shipping in 2 boxes), is charging $82.50 for the Case.  The $82.50 will count towards free shipping, so you’re just $17.50 away from it.

Open case with 4" Foam on display.
