Deathstorm: A Closer Look


As you all know we have the sons of Sanguinius are getting a new codex, some new minis and most importantly new campaign. Shield of Baal part two! With all that going on I have noticed, that Flesh Tearers are getting metnioned far too often to get omitted by some supplement. At least that's what I'm hoping for.

In the light of the above, I have purchased two boxes of Deathstorm and sold everything I do not need to bolster up my Flesh Tearers - one captain and terminators and the whole lot of Tyranids. I have left only two Furiosos and 10 man Death Company squad plus one Captain.

Rest assured, I will be posting some progress pics as soon as I get them assembled. But the question is, should I buy the BA codex? Got the magic cards. Will I be able to use them with FT? This will not make any sense...

Anyway... let's have a closer look on what's in the box before I shipe everything out.

The models

What we get in the box:
  • 1 Blood Angels Terminator Captain
  • 1 Furioso Dreadnaught
  • 5 Death Company Space Marines
  • 5 Space Marine Terminators
  • 1 Broodlord
  • 8 Genestealers
  • 3 Tyranid Warriors
  • 1 Carnifex.
The models are exactly what you get in their boxed counterparts. Except for the Captain and the Broodlord. Space Marine looks like he's dancing and Broodlord is based on the model from the Space Hulk (just a change of hands and the base).

The books

We get a mini rulebook, with a Blood Angel on the cover. That's the only difference. It's well done, as always.
We also get a campaign supplement with Shield of Baal: Deathstorm. It contains plenty of background information on the goings on in the Cryptus System and very nice two page artworks. On top of that it also contains:
  • galleries of very nicely painted models from the boxset
  • three missions to play with all the models (here's a catch: tables that they use are: 72"x24", 48"x48" and 72"x48")
  • formations for both Blood Angels and Tyranids (same as in the Stormclaw, no special rules though)
  • wargear for both factions and special rules and psychic powers for Tyranids
It's a well done book with full colour pages. Well worth the money.

All in all I really am glad that I spent the money for the sets. The miniatures are worth their money for both Blood Angel and Tyranid players. Also, you get a book and the rule book for free.
Go and get it if you still can, if you collect or want to collect the armies.
