It seems we have some new fortifications on the horizon. While we have not seen any rules yet for them, they look very cool, and is definitely on my to get list if and when we see these. They are not listed on the Nov. 3rd releases. These pics are from the November White Dwarf though, and I think they are going to fit in wonderfully. Just take a closer look at those locations for heavy weapon teams.


I dont know what the release date for these are, nor the rules for them. We are simply waiting for more information here. Below I gathered what I could below, and it seems that the name of the fortifications are the Wall of Martyrs. Hopefully we get more information on these in the next few days.

You get 3 defense lines, 2 encampments and 1 bunker, plus a bunch of barricades. It has special sections for heavy weapons teams. It looked quite extensive. the official name is apparently is the 'Wall of Martyrs'. 130€ for the bundle btw

  1. Those are the same fortification we can see in the new CSM dex (or was it the BRB? Dunno), so those who thought those were plastic kits were apparently correct.

  2. It looks kinda cool - but I think the burning questions is what another sources has to say about Stickmonkey's claims. The fortification does look pretty cool and seems pretty modular, that's a healthy price tag though.

  3. Looks very cool indeed.....but it also looks like it may just be studio terrain.

    1. Then you would See it made up of other Kits.
      Its Not like they have no IG Kits to work with!

      My Question is will it be legal in normal Games and what are the rules?

      According to BRB Terenches Give 4+ cover & you count as in difficult Terrain. Assuming Tanks get a 4+ Cover behind it , Thats 3+ with camo-netting!
      Pretty Imba!!!!!!

    2. What is this Imba thing about? Is it a term for being too over powered?

    4. definitely not studio terrain, i got a peak at the white dwarf, its a set coming out soon, $160 US roughly, also, on a side note, the back page teaser for next month is a picture of one of the dwarves from the hobbit (as in a photograph not artwork) so yaaayyy...(he said sarcastically)

  4. interesting to see old school storm troopers in the back of the picture, wonder if this is what the new plastics are based on or if they are just old metal models repainted to fit the studio army

  5. No way it costs that much. Maybe a bit more than the bastion putting it around 60$ Canadian which would be reasonable but still way too much. No ones is paying 200$ canadian for that. (200$=130€) roughly.

    1. it will do if they are 2 or 3 separate kits and thats just the bundle of them all together, like the imperial strong point and sector

    2. Yeah that makes more sense I guess.

  6. Something about them makes me think forgeworld resin. The fact that the two bunkers are different is a red flag. They do look fun to play with.

  7. From a real world perspective, they look very easy to run/climb up from an attackers point of view. Still look amazing though

  10. Yeah no rules as of yet. The bunker section is hollow so you can put peoples in there if you so wish.

    ReplyDelete
  11. £100 for a terrain piece. Ok, this means a) the thing is going to occupy a huge footprint b) as such it'll be priced higher (in points) than the Fortress of redemption and c) you have to decide between this or a three valkaries to spend you're money on. Hmmmm, let me think...

    Don't see it happening. MAYBE its like the building landscape £100 box they bought out years ago, with all four of the ruined buildings they still sell. Hence multiple 'pieces'. Maybe this will mean you buy the bunker then add trench sections/emplacements at additional cost.

    Is this really what people want from fortifications? GW should realise that people want fortifications cheap. What has been, by far, the most popular fortication of the 4 released thus far? Conincidence its the cheapest? I think not

  12. What part of "bundle dea" are people missing?

    1. The "l". But really, it doesn't say "bundle deal" anywhere?

  13. With the addition of ap 3, ignores cover weapons added to the game via codex csm, the aegis defense line's days are numbered. We may all be looking for a alternative. Soon. Yet another tool GW can use to make us play the 1-ups-man game with. :) That Skyshirld is looking better and better. Just have to make sure your opp doesn't use to to do a non scatter drop into your zone, heh.

    So the bunker/trench is kinda a aegis/bastion combo, almost. If it is 125pts it might be worth it, but only if ya have flakk to compensate for the lack of a interceptor weapon. Come on Interceptor missile for Whirlwinds!

    Now my codex just needs some skyfire to compensate the Shield not adding any. Guess 2 Stormtalons can do it, but I do like some redundancy to compensate for under average rolls on my part and or above average rolls my opp may have.

    1. They're hardly a new thing. The Land Raider Redeemer's Flamestorm cannons are S6 AP3, and if I'm not mistaken the heavy incinerator on the Dreadnight is as well, though I think I may be wrong there. And outside the realm of flame templates, in C:SM at least there's the Thunderfire cannon's S5 AP6 ignores cover shots and Sternguard S4 AP5 ignores cover bolter fire that'll both wreck ork, IG and cultists' day in the right circumstances. Other codices I'm sure have similar options. The Dragon is just more maneuverable, but the Aegis line conveniently is armed perfectly to kill them with the quad gun.

    1. There was going to be some magic mushroom terrain but Ward used it all himself in preparation for writing his next codex.

  16. Seconded. Imperium already has 4 different fortifications and the 1st new one in years is ...wait for it... Also Imperium. These look awesome, but really couldn't they have given the xeno's something other than resin Orc barricades??

  17. I have always thought GW should have made the buildings from the original DOW game. I would certainly buy enough of that to have a all Eldar table.

    2. U can get them from forge world :-) but who has the money

    3. Those chaos crater portal things would be nice for CSM and daemons in place of a sky shield. I always look to DOW for ideas for gaming tables and terrain. Some excellent things in it. Imagine a table as detailed as one of the Imperial maps with all the Different levels, bridges and forts. *Drools*

    4. i just got out of a gw store in kent (UK)was talking to a member of staff whom i know quite well about a terrain project i am working on at the moment as i was leaving he said if it was terrain i was looking for make sure i save some money for the christmas period

  18. Info drop: this is not a new fortification, it's a limited edition terrain set. It will not have a huge footprint unless you want it to, it's a bunch of trench peices and wall cOnnector blocks that can be put Out as separate terrain sections or used to link the trenches together.

    It's an assload of terrain, and the trenches were built with playability in mind, the trenches are all wide enough to fit a dreadnaught base

  19. USA $160
    Can $195

    Can dollar is stronger, yet we always pay more. Yea that makes sense. Well I guess it is better than what the Ausies pay :S

    1. Economics is not just about the strength of the dollar! Canadians pay more than Americans on import and business operation fees. There is also economy of scales to consider. Way more product moves through the USA than Canada, so we have to pay more to make up for it.

  20. another imperial fortification... come on! this one looks like it will be impossible to convert to due to the massive eagle on the front of each section

  21. I found this blog rather interesting. The details and precise suggestions are precisely what I was hoping to find. hydrodynamic bearings
