Warhammer 40,000 – New Starter Sets Sighted!

The Indomitus launch box hit shelves all across the world over the weekend, with excited hobbyists everywhere heading down to their nearest Warhammer store or independent stockist to get their hands on a copy. Yet even in the aftermath of all this excitement, we’ve got more news on what the future holds for the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. After all, Indomitus was a celebratory boxed set primarily aimed at veteran Warhammer hobbyists, but we certainly haven’t forgotten about all you newcomers to the grim darkness of the far future… behold our glorious new range of starter sets!

Warhammer 40,000 – Recruit Edition

If you’re looking to dip your toe into Warhammer 40,000 for the very first time and learn (or teach!) the basics of the game, the Recruit Edition is for you.

The set includes a handful of miniatures, dice, range rulers, a mat, and a Recruit Manual featuring each unit’s datasheet and guidance to help you learn the basics of the game. It’s an excellent option for younger hobbyists.

Warhammer 40,000 – Elite Edition

The next step up is the Elite Edition, which features a larger selection of units, including the awesome new Necron Overlord and Primaris Captain miniatures! 

The Elite Edition is a fantastic option if you’re looking to begin or broaden your collection of Necrons and Space Marines while using the Elite Manual included in the set to learn the game at your own pace.

Warhammer 40,000 – Command Edition

The Command Edition is simply the best way to get started with Warhammer 40,000! Not only does it include all of the amazing models in the Elite Edition, it also boasts a fantastic fold-out, double-sided gaming board to fight your battles on, and a cracking selection of brand-new battlefield terrain. In short, it’s got everything you need to kickstart your Warhammer 40,000 journey with gusto and verve!

The set’s Command Manual features a narrative-driven set of six missions aimed at teaching you key aspects of the game. Once you’ve mastered these principles, a 184-page rulebook will provide you with everything you need to take your next steps towards becoming a hardened veteran of Warhammer 40,000 battlefields!

It’s also worth bearing in mind that any of the three new starter sets are also great options for established collectors too, especially if you’re looking to supplement your existing armies or to top up your Indomitus set with a few additional units!


A Word on Bladeguard Veterans

You may have noticed that none of the new starter sets include the mighty Bladeguard Veterans from the Indomitus boxed set. Well, there’s a reason for that – have you seen these guys?

These glorious warriors will soon be available in a separate, multipart kit all their own. If you’re chomping at the bit to add a unit or two into your army, you won’t have long to wait!
