Astra Militarum Cadian Armoured Fists Box Set


This Saturday one of the new box sets coming out for pre-orders is the Astra Militarum Cadian Armoured Fist. While we know it contains 11 models, a Chimera and 10 guardsmen, we now have a few more details on the contents.


Please remember that this is a rumor until we get an official release. From this information, it looks like the Chimera is not being left out in the cold. What is nice about this set is that right now, a Chimera cost $37.25, and a squad of 10 cadian shock troops $29 for a total of $66.25. This new box set has a $6.25 savings. Very cool, (especially if I did not have 10 chimeras already)

  2. Except that it seems to be a return to the old squad+vehicle bundles they dabbled with.

  3. This is good news for me. I like the chimera and everyone can always use more guardsmen.

  4. So effectively speaking, I'm saving £5. Good to know X3

    1. I think that means we can safely assume this rumour is fake :P

    2. only the saving is fake, its suppose to be 70 dollars, you pay 5 extra for the convenience of one button pushing.

    3. @Mathias - Even if it's an extra 10 USD, it's still not a huge saving given you're still paying for 90% of the kit.

      Hold your pennies instead for the Big Army Box that'll be coming.

  5. I'm just hoping that this means a return to the good old armored fist squads instead of veterans as troops.

  6. I might get it for th chassie so I can use it to build a hydra or arty tank. Since supposedly the hydra kit will come with both. And you can always use more cannon fodder I mean guardsmen.

  7. Haven't they sold this exact set before? Oh yeah, there it is sitting on my shelf because I haven't put it together yet from the last one I bought. :) So not new box set, more a set in a new box.

  8. "several weapon options for the Chimera."
    Would it be too naive to think that maybe we'll see new weapons for the chimera? like the autocannon or something? It would be kinda neat.

    1. Nah. The front hull can take either a Flamer or a Heavy Bolter, that's nothing new. Also I think it can take a pintle-mounted heavy stubber.

    2. sigh you're probably right, but one can dream :) right? XD

    3. Only thing that could be done is that the flamer could be placed in the turret and the bolter in the front, just like FW chimera turret with flamer. It doesn't seem important, but a flamer in the turret can take out close enemies attacking from the rear or sides while still keeping the chimera with its front armour towards heavy fire. And yes, there's a stubber in the chimera.

    4. But the Heavy Flamer is already available for the turret.

    5. hunter killer, heavy bolter, multi laser, heavy flamer, heavy stubber, storm bolter, that's 6! Maybe it is the autocannon haha

  10. Sounds great but we all know that in reality an Armoured Fist is more of an Armoured Slap.
