I've seen the Space Marines, Imperial Guard and Tau gifs, but the rest are new to me. Excellent work. Makes me want a 40k-themed 2D sidescrolling platformer/shooter along the lines of Contra or Alien: Isolation.

I'd love to see some Warhammer Fantasy gifs, too.
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Some new WH40k lore. I can't remember it all, but this piece stood out:

Guilliman has tasked Cawl, his go-to in the Adeptus Mechanicus, with creating Necron Pylons to seal up the Eye of Terror. He is also experimenting with Eldar and Old One technology, IIRC also at Guilliman's behest.

Necromunda Is Back!

It’s been more than a decade since we last visited the Underhive, but very soon you’ll be able to battle it out in the depths of Hive Primus.

If you’re new to the hobby, you may not be familiar with Necromunda – or perhaps you’ve only heard about it from the fond memories of other hobbyists. Necromunda dives into the underworld of the Imperium, allowing players to control their own Hive Gang – a pack of ruthless criminal killers augmented with black-market cybernetics, gene modifications and scavenged weaponry. Where Warhammer 40,000 puts you at the head of an army, in Necromunda, the scale is much smaller but the action is just as intense – every single Ganger counts.

Image

Between intense skirmish battles, your gang will grow from a pack of battle-hungry Juves to a feared and respected syndicate of hardened veterans. To get there, however, you’ll have to battle against your fellow players, each with a gang of their own.

The Underhive is a big place, and the gangs that inhabit it are as diverse as the alien races that inhabit the 41st Millennium. We’re launching Necromunda with two classics.

Gangs from House Escher are fast, deadly, and cruel. While lightly armoured, these cunning warrior women hold their own in melee combat, while at range, they are notorious for their use of armour-melting plasma weaponry.

ImageImage

The gangers of House Goliath are a living testament to brawn over brains. Every member of House Goliath is a slab of vat-grown muscle, armed and armoured with repurposed industrial gear.

ImageImage

What makes these miniatures even better is that they’ll be available in multi-part, plastic kits – so easy to assemble, customise and paint into a gang of your own.

Plastics too! Woohoo! :D

Looking forward to the Escher gang home base design from M.C. Escher.
