Getting Started! Now Available to Pre-order

Today, you’ll be able to pre-order all of our new getting started sets for Warhammer 40,000, from new units and miniatures to great value boxed sets and a companion guide for aspiring generals.

Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000’ is perfect for anyone yet to take their first steps into the 41st Millennium. Across this 103-page booklet, you’ll be able to explore the Warhammer 40,000 universe, from the vast range of factions battling for supremacy in the grim and distant future to how you can take part. There are guides to painting, building, collecting and even playing, including the core rules and a guide on how to use them. (For those who know what they’re looking for, there’s a treat on page 39 – so make sure to look through your copy carefully.) And that’s not even all – a free Primaris Space Marine comes with the booklet so you have your first model to get started with – not bad for the price of a White Dwarf!

Pre-order yours HERE.


Our two new boxed sets are great deals for generals old and new. In each box, you’ll get everything you need to start playing, with two armies of miniatures, rules to play with them, dice, and even card scenery and a gaming mat! Know No Fear is a more comprehensive way to get started, with two full matched play armies in the box, while First Strike contains all of our Easy to Build models and can be set up and played almost as soon as you’ve opened it. Both of these sets are great value whether you’re looking to bolster your Death Guard and Space Marines or are looking for a great way to start gaming.


Finally, the new Easy to Build sets are available separately as well, each featuring brand new designs for the Primaris Space Marines and the Death Guard. This is the first chance you’ll have to get your hands on the savage Primaris Reivers, as well as allowing you to bolster your Intercessors with more squadmates. Death Guard Players can add a new special weapon to their squads with the deadly blight launcher, as well as a plasma gun wielding Plague Champion. Finally, there’s now also an easy way to boost your own shambling hordes with the Easy to Build Poxwalkers – like the rest of the kits, these are all new designs and you’ll be able to assemble them without glue.


You’ll be able to find rules and points for the Poxwalkers, Plague Marines and Intercessors in their respective indexes, while Reivers will have their rules in their box. You’ll also be able to add these guys to your matched play games and your Space Wolves, Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Deathwatch armies with our rules PDF, here:

Finally, if you’ve been playing the new edition since Dark Imperium and are hungry for new ways to add variety to your games, the Open War cards bring dynamic, unpredictable gameplay to Warhammer 40,000. There are thousands of possible combinations and ways to keep things fresh.

It’s a great time to play Warhammer 40,000 – make your start or reinforce your armies today.
