To be promoted from the Skitarii maniples to the Serberys corps is a great honour. They ride swift quadrupedal constructs whose razor-clawed limbs allow them to manoeuvre easily over the most shattered terrain, while their riders are mag-locked in gyro-stabilised positions. Serberys Raiders are long-range scouts and outriders. They excel at outflanking enemy forces and picking off unprotected assets. Advanced ocular arrays implanted into the riders’ skulls are noospherically linked with their mounts, ensuring maximum accuracy, while finely calibrated olfactory sensors and a suite of sensitive augury equipment make them dogged and feared trackers. Serberys Raiders are well equipped for combat at every distance, with galvanic carbines offering ranged punch and finely crafted cavalry sabres for melee combat. The squad’s alpha is also armed with a hard-hitting archeo-revolver. They make for a versatile vanguard unit, able to ride ahead of their fellow Skitarii and even snipe at enemy command assets. This kit can alternatively be used to build a unit of Serberys Sulphurhounds instead, meaning that regardless of which unit you assemble, you'll end up with plenty of spare components for customising your collection. This kit is supplied in 103 plastic components with which to assemble three models, each supplied with a Citadel 60mm x 35mm Oval Bases. Also included is an Adeptus Mechanicus transfer sheet.

Key Features A towering, terrifying Knight for Questoris Households and allied armies Incinerate enemies with a flamestorm cannon and shred them with a chainfist Can be deployed on the battlefields of the Horus Heresy and the 41st Millennium Cerastus Knights are sophisticated and towering war-suits, faster and more agile than the smaller Questoris class. The Knight Acheron is a fearsome sight on the battlefield, a reaper of lives designed not only to destroy, but also to inspire terror. The presence of a Knight Acheron warns the foe to expect no mercy, for such grim weapons are only deployed for missions of extermination, to topple the works of the enemy and scour clean their lands with flame. This multipart plastic kit builds one Cerastus Knight Acheron – a terrifying war engine that reduces all opposition to ashes. Even taller than its Questoris-class cousins, the Knight Acheron strides across the battlefield unleashing bursts of baleful fire from its arm-mounted flamestorm cannon and shredding tougher enemies with blows from its wicked reaper chainfist..This detailed model is highly customisable, with joints in its ankles, knees, hips, head, arms, and waist allowing you to create your own dynamic pose. Its head and arms also offer glueless assembly options to adjust their position mid-game. The kit includes a variety of cosmetic options, including two variant designs for kneepads and greaves, and four hull-mounted icons – one each for Loyalist, Traitor, Mechanicum, and Questoris Household Knights. You can also build the Knight with an open hatch, revealing the seated pilot within. This kit comprises 253 plastic components, and comes with a Citadel 170x109mm Oval Base. It also includes an Age of Darkness Cerastus Knight Transfer Sheet, containing 517 optional markings and icons for the Knight Households of the Horus Heresy. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints. Rules for using this miniature in your games of Warhammer 40,000 are available as a free download on the Warhammer Community website.

Key Features A swift aerial transport craft Can instead be assembled as an Archaeopter Fusilave or Archaeopter Stratoraptor A Flyer choice for the Adeptus Mechanicus A workhorse not only of the toxic Martian skies, but of distant worlds at the forefront of the Tech-Priests' expansion for millennia, the Archaeopter is an agile fixed-wing aircraft. Piloted by a member of the Pteraxii caste, whose legs and scapuli superior are hardwired into its controls, the nano-carbon fibre-weave of the Archaeopter's wings is capable of morphing – a property it shares with the Pteraxii flight packs. This affords great manoeuvrability and enables it to operate within changing pressures as it undertakes explorator duties as well as delivering teams of lethal operatives behind enemy lines or into the heart of battle. In addition to being able to transport up to 6 Secutarii, Electro-Priest, Tech-Priest or Skitarii models, the Archaeopter Transvector is armed with two cognis heavy stubbers and a twin cognis heavy stubber with which it can lay down covering fire. The Archaeopter Transvector can also be upgraded with chaff launchers to thwart incoming enemy fire. The combination of speed, freedom of the skies and transport capacity makes an Archaeopter Transvector a great choice for grabbing distant objectives with disembarking Skitarii. This kit can alternatively be used to build an Archaeopter Fusilave or Archaeopter Stratoraptor instead, meaning that regardless of which unit you assemble, you'll end up with plenty of spare components for customising your collection. This kit is supplied in 94 plastic components and is supplied with a Citadel 170mm x 109mm Oval Base and a Citadel 115mm Ball Stem with Tang Adapter.

Plagueburst Crawlers are lumbering, formidable siege tanks whose huge ram-blades, thick armour plating and daemonic energies provide them with incredible resilience. Their fearsome plagueburst mortars boast a parabolic fire arc and terrifying range, while the shells they fire combine high-radius explosives with lethal clouds of corrosive spores to inflict damage comparable to that of Imperial Demolisher cannon. The remainder of the Crawler’s weaponry is intended to slaughter the foe up close, spraying diseased slime and hails of vital shells at any who approach.  This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Plagueburst Crawler. An extremely front-heavy tracked dozer brimming with horrible weaponry, it is covered in thick armour pitted and rusting with corrosion and decay. A standout feature is the huge, spiked dozer blade, with a symbol of Nurgle proudly displayed, picked out in skulls. It bears 2 plaguespitters on the sponsons, which you can replace with the 2 included entropy cannon, and the heavy slugger at the front-centre can be replaced with a rothail volley gun – each option is equally potent, but the biggest worry to the enemy is undoubtedly the plagueburst mortar, whose targeting mechanisms and enormous barrel dominate the rear of the vehicle.    This kit comes as 71 components.
