Imperial Guard Characters and Bitz, WH Basing Kit

Postby Spack » Sat Sep 19, 2009 10:16 am

Latest newsletter from GW has some new Imperial Guard releases, additions to the bitz service for IG, and new basing kits.

Imperial Guard Catachan Characters

This week the armies of the Imperial Guard are bolstered by two of Catachan’s most famous heroes. Colonel ‘Iron Hand’ Straken and Gunnery Sergeant Harker both have their own special rules that lend extra weight to an aggressive, assault-focused Imperial Guard army.

Colonel ‘Iron Hand’ Straken
Augmented by extensive bionics and indifferent to the darkest horrors, Straken is a powerful close combat opponent who confers the Furious Charge special rule to nearby squads. Have Straken lead the charge of your Imperial Guard army.

Gunnery Sergeant Harker
Gunnery Sergeant Harker is able to move and fire with his heavy bolter, and has a Ballistic Skill to match a Space Marine. Add this giant Catachan to your Imperial Guard army.

Tank Upgrades & Accessories

There are five new Bitz Packs this week and each can be used to personalise your Imperial Guard vehicles and squads. With a bit of imagination they even make great objective markers.

Imperial Guard Tank Commanders
This set of three Tank Commanders can be used with any Imperial Guard tank kit from the Chimera right up to a Baneblade.

Imperial Guard Crew
These two Imperial Guard crew can be added to your Imperial vehicles, and are also great for dioramas.

Imperial Aquilas
This set of Imperial Aquilas can be used to personalise your Space Marine or Imperial Guard tanks, and your Warhammer 40,000 scenery.

Imperial Guard Tank Stowage
Add some extra stowage to any tank with this versatile set that can also be used to create objective markers.

Imperial Guard Heads
Individualise your Imperial Guard squads with this selection of 10 different metal heads.

New Basing Material

There’s an old saying amongst miniature painters that ‘good bases make good armies’. Well, with the Warhammer Basing Kit and two new types of basing grass out this week, you’ll have everything you need to create evocative bases for your models.

Warhammer Basing Kit
The Warhammer Basing Kit is packed with 20mm and 25mm pieces of resin detailing, slate, and brass-etched leaf foliage. Add extra detail to the bases of your miniatures with this all-new set.

Citadel Dead Grass
Ideal for decorating the bases of evil armies, such as Vampire Counts and Warriors of Chaos, Dead Grass can also be used to add sun-bleached areas or barren desert to a Gameboard.

Citadel Burnt Grass
Another new colour of basing material, Burnt Grass can be used on its own or to mark out areas of scorched or blackened ground.
