Dark Imperium is the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 boxed set!
Slowly and deliberately the once-proud XIV Legion march on the now fractured Imperium. Emerging from the warp and from the Scourge Stars the Death Guard, swollen with the dark energies of Chaos, siege the Imperium. Against this tide of Plague Marines, Daemon Engines and hordes Plague Zombies, the Primaris Space Marines of Roboute Guilliman’s Indomitus Crusade stand ready to push back the enemies of humanity. Dark Imperium is the tale of a clash that took place in the depths of this conflict, as a small mirror of the wider conflict it is integral for both sides that victory should be achieved at all cost, for the survival of humanity or the glory of chaos.
The Dark Imperium Warhammer 40k boxed set is the perfect place to start your Warhammer 40k collection, or to supplement your growing Space Marine or Death Guard force. The set contains: 53 detailed Citadel miniatures, a complete hardback copy of the Eighth Edition Warhammer 40k rules, two softback supplements outlining the rules and background for the included miniatures, 12 red six-sided dice, a 12” clear ruler and a Space Marine/Death Guard transfer sheet. With this box alone, you’re able to construct and play a game of Warhammer 40k.
The box contains 22 Primaris Space Marines and their relevant bases;
- One Primaris Space Marine Captain, nobly leading by example as they tear through the Plague ranks with Master-Crafted Power Sword in one hand and Boltstorm Gauntlet in the other.
- Two Primaris Space Marine Lieutenants, one leading the Primaris Intercessor ranks with auto-bolt rifle in hand while the other fights alongside their captain, wielding a Power Sword and Bolt Pistol.
- One Primaris Space Marine ancient, carrying the colours of the Chapter on their Adeptus Astarted Banner.
- 10 Primaris Space Marine Intercessors armed with Bolt Riffles.
- Three Primaris Space Marine Inceptors, dropping from the sky with Assault Bolters blazing.
- Five Primaris Space Marive Hellblasters, reducing all to ash with their Plasma Incinerators.
The box contains 31 Death Guard Plague Miniatures and their relevant bases;
- One Death Guard Lord of Contagion, a hulking, plague ridden Space Marine of the Death Guard Legion, marching ever forward with their tainted Terminator Armour and Plaguereaper weapon.
- One Death Guard Noxious Blightbringer, a twisted mirror of the Space Marine Ancient that ushers forth the Plague Hosts of Nurgle with their cursed Plague Bell while striking fear in the hearts of all but the noblest mortals.
- One Death Guard Malignant Plaguecaster, a dark sorcerer of Nurgle, armed with a Corrupted Staff and Bolt Pistol.
- Seven Death guard Plague Marines, five armed with Bolt Guns, one armed with a Plasma gun and one Plague Champion armed with a Bolt Pistol, Plague Sword and Power Fist.
- One Death Guard Foetid Bloat-drone, a rotting daemonic engine held aloft by decaying machinery and dark magic, armed with Plaguespitters and a Plague Probe.
- 20 Death Guard Poxwalkers, lurching forwards in a disorganised rotten mob, sporting improvised weapons and dragging down enemies with sheer numbers alone.
The Box contains a full unabridged Eighth Edition rulebook. The two 24-page information books contain the background for the Primaris Space Marines and Death Guard, their heraldries, datasheets, rules and points values for them to be used in matched play games.
The box contains 8x 40mm round bases, 18x 32mm round bases, 1x new flying stands set (3 stems), 5x 32mm round bases, 1x 50mm round base, 1x 60mm round base and 20x 25mm round bases.
In addition, a full colour, easy-to-follow guard for the construction of each miniature is included.
This box is an excellent way to start the hobby, and provides you with two brilliant and balanced forces to play games with.
