News: GW Newsletter - Spearhead News; New Plastic Kits

Hello all, Slick here. The latest GW newsletter is out and this one is pretty exciting as it previews the new Spearhead expansion and related kits coming out soon! There is a lot to digest here. Taking a look at the picture below you see the Manticore as well as a Leman Russ Exterminator, and what appear to be Vanquishers. Further down there also seems to be an Eradicator. The Eldar are also getting some love with the long-rumored plastic Fireprism and plastic Support Weapons. The Imperial forces are also getting a Knight Commander Pask mini to upgrade tanks with! Lastly, there is also something of an upgrade sprue for vehicles coming out in relation to Spearhead. Whew!

In this issue: Important Spearhead news; New Eldar & Imperial Guard kits

Spearhead: latest news

Spearhead is a new Expansion for Warhammer 40,000, and you'll find all the rules and information you need to start playing in June's issue of White Dwarf. And from Tuesday 1st of June rules for the various spearhead units will be available for you to download from There you go: an entire Warhammer 40,000 expansion for free, leaving you plenty of extra pennies to pick up those extra tanks you'll need to demolish your opponent.


Spearhead presents you with an exciting new way to play games of Warhammer 40,000. For a start, Spearhead games are played along the length of the table, and all walkers and tanks that are chosen as part of a spearhead count as scoring units. Not to mention the fact that all those walkers and tanks will benefit from a host of special rules and abilities.

Eldar: new tanks & weapons platform

Just in time to give them the edge in Spearhead, those forward-thinking Eldar have added the firepower of two new plastic kits to their arsenal. The new Fire Prism kit can be assembled as either a Fire Prism or the all-new Death Spinner, which means no matter what type of force your opponent fields, you'll have the weaponry to defeat him.

Fire Prism Fire Prism

The Fire Prism has the most powerful anti-vehicle weapon of any Eldar tank (it's also pretty great at vaporising elite infantry). It will be particularly potent in games of Spearhead where it'll have ample opportunity to blast apart enemy vehicles.

Eldar Support Platform Eldar Support Platform

The Eldar use Support Weapons to mount their heaviest weaponry. Advance order the new plastic Eldar Support Weapon and unleash either the armour busting D-cannon, the dangerously powerful vibro cannon or the infantry shredding shadow weaver, on your enemy.

Imperial Guard: new tanks & tank upgrades

Also available to advance order from today are some brand-new Imperial Guard tank kits including the Deathstrike Missile Launcher, which has the largest missile ever. It's huge!

Leman Russ Battle Tank Leman Russ Battle Tank

The Leman Russ Battle Tank is the mainstay of the Imperial army. It's well armoured and mounts a powerful array of weaponry that can be tailored to meet any foe. We'd heartily recommend you field as many Leman Russ tanks as possible - your opponent may not be so keen.

Manticore/Deathstrike Manticore/Deathstrike

The Deathstrike Missile Launcher and Manticore Rocket Launcher are the last word in artillery, and are now available as a plastic kit. Be among the first to wield the thunderous firepower of these new Imperial Guard tanks - advance order them here.

Knight Commander Pask Knight Commander Pask

Knight Commander Pask can be added to any Imperial Guard tank. Pask has a Ballistic skill of 4 and gains +1 to armour penetration rolls. Increase the lethality of your battle tanks with this legendary Cadian tank commander.

Squadron Command Frame Squadron Command Frame

The Squadron Command Frame allows you to upgrade your walkers and tanks to command vehicles and will help you identify individual spearheads on the battlefield.
