WD #44: Shield of Baal: Deathstorm


So i had a look through the new WD and I must say, GW knows how to make money. Not only they are introducing new base sizes (Power Armour dudes and Jump Infantry and Broodlord) but are realeasing another boxset that makes you want to buy it straight up! Damn you GW! I hope you burn in hell! Ha!

But let's see what else is in the issue.


  • The new boxset with the new Shield of Baal campaign sort of thingy taking place in Cryptus System. Blah, blah, blah... you get 1 Blood Angels Terminator Captain, 1 Furioso Dreadnaught, 5 Death Company Space Marines, 5 Space Marine Terminators, 1 Broodlord, 8 Genestealers, 3 Tyranid Warriors and 1 Carnifex. 
  • What's more interesting are the two new base sizes: 32mm round and 75mm oval. The 32mm bases are (supposedly) for all Power Armoured and Jump Infantry units. The other, 75mm oval, is for Broodlord, so I would say bigger, smallest monstrous of some kind.
  • The box will also include the campaign book and a rulebook and a set of dice and markers and stuff.
  • Captain Karlaen - dancing terminator is pretty cool with his Thunder Hammer and a Storm Bolter at once. Very Spacehulky looking model. Same goes for The Spawn of Cryptus, very similar to the Space Hulk Broodlord.
  • With the release of the new installment of the Hobbit movie we get plenty of new models. But who cares?!
