The Wall of Martyrs individual kits are now up for advance orders to be released on December 1st. There are three box sets coming with these, so that you can mix and match, or expand upon what you already have.

I am glad they did this with this set, as you can now build your lines how you would like, not to mention that we had rumors of parts of it coming out in the next codex as a fortification.


Games Workshop Advance Orders
Wall of Martyrs - Imperial Defence Line $41.25
Wall of Martyrs - Imperial Bunker $33.00
Wall of Martyrs - Imperial Defence Emplacement $29.75

  2. Welcome back!

    I really like the Wall of Martyrs so pleased I haven't missed out.

    Can perhaps do a 40K 'Zulu' game now. Imperial Guard or Space Marines defending a fortified position against impossible odds.

    1. A recreation of the battle of rork's drift would be a great way to sell these, and reintroduce the Praetorian Guard to mainstream 40k for the young ones! :P

    2. If they reintroduce Praetorian Guard, in plastic kits, I'm buying some. Though painting in my own colours.

      By the way, check out victoria miniatures, they've got bits for making Praetorians and Praetorian Rough Riders.

    3. Pretorians were just Mordians (which are still available in the Collectors range) with pith helmets. Seriously. Everything from hairline down was IDENTICAL (so that they did not have to remake the entire mould, just the head). So a bit of greenstuff, or alternate heads from another manufacturer and Pretorians are back in business like they had never been away. (Also makes sense why they were withdrawn, because converting them is so easy and the two lines resulted in double inventory.)

      Speaking of conversion bitz, how strict GW are in general about their "only GW models for in-store gaming or events" policy? Considering in the past even in the hobby sections of codices/BRB there have been scratchbuilds and conversions that have used "parts of model kits" (manufacturer unspecified), so if the majority of the model still comes from GW I thought maybe they wouldn't look too closely (as you could claim you sculpted the helmets yourself).

    1. Thanks for the warning didnt relise it was wsl they seem abit obsessed with that lately

    2. Notice the wording also..

      "the book contains rules that can be used in ANY Warhammer 40,000 game, from massive multi-player scenarios fought in low-gravity environments or in bunkers deep below the ground, to EXPANDED RULES FOR FLYERS. "

      So this is a supplement rule book that is WSL?!

    3. This is really important 40k news if this is correct and I can see it causing no end of problems for the game. We have gone all this time with things still not being clear if we are able to take things from imperial army books, now I foresee the same for this book. The wording there seems pretty clear cut. ANY 40k game yet not everyone is going to have this book especially when it is while stocks last. What the hell is going on?!

    4. Imperial armor books I meant to say

  4. Can anyone give more detail on this Crusader of Fire book, i never heard of it, is this a new release or a new edition from an old expansion book.

    ReplyDelete
  5. well from zooming in on the picture the campaign is basically a world has been in a warpstorm for ages and now the imperium has come to claim it as the warpstorm has stopped, but just as they start reclaiming chaos appear to stop them, then lastly the dark eldar arrive to sabotage both sides and reap the rewards :P so typical :D

  6. We were concerned.

  7. Besides the campaign aspect, it says additional rules for use in all 40k games as well as expanded rules for flyers. Is this going to be similar to an Imperial Armour book? It seems like if there are significant special rules, it's almost as important to have as the rulebook and codex since its an official 40k release and can't be argued like FW products tend to be.

    1. *Referring to the book, not the wall...

    2. And it is limited edition also. So people going to end being able to use extra rules in games while others cannot?

      Delete
    3. Maybe just the hardback will be limited once it sells enough swap it to cheap soft cover.

    4. Hopefully. Really am just stressing because I can't afford it this week and worried it will sell out by time I can. lol

      It does sound really, really good. I am loving the sound of the gladiator thing mentioned.

  8. I was lucky enough to get the limited edition wall of martyrs set. I saved about 60$ vs buying it all seperately. It's a nice kit, the defense lines are about 10" long so one box with the ends on the lines are around 21". It's thick plastic and you have the option of putting the imperial shield bits on the walls. Overall I'm happy with the purchase as I can stretch across a 6' table . Perfect for those "forging the narrative" games.

  9. Wow, a plastic wall.......
    And no info at all on something that might actually be interesting, the Campaign of Fire book.
    Must have missed all the rumours of this coming, and the article mentioning it release!
    No, still a plastic wall.........

    1. You'll be amazed to hear they do other things in plastic as well... yeh some of us get excited about things in plastic...

    2. Wow...someone being negative towards GW for absolutely no reason and believing themselves clever for it.

      There's also tons of information about the campaign book available, you just have try out the internet thing....

      Must have missed the parts where it was announced, described in explicit detail, and leafed through.

      Yes, miniatures companies still make things in plastic. Pretty handy material.

    3. I think the issue is for those of us that play purely Xenos armies it is just a plastic wall. It's about as exciting as a fantasy release for those of us who only play 40k. That being said, it would be cool to see an opponent having it on the table. More scenery is never a bad thing.

      Delete
    4. Pretty sure the designers did state somewhere that the Imperium is central to 40k, and the xenos armies take the role of secondary characters so to speak

  10. I want to see these available as a fortification to everybody. It would be very nice. A trench system would be very welcome for the IG.

    1. I think it's scenario-based. I.e. in the WD blog:

      "...additional rules for flyers to try out..."
