The Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Talos Pain Engines are seen as the pinnacle of the Haemonculi's art. Creations of mad genius, each one is part organic and part mechanical, festooned with surgical apparatus and horrible-looking weapons of war. The bladed forelimbs of a Talos can scissor even an Ogryn into bloody chunks, while whirling blades and drills can eviscerate a man in seconds, disassembling him into his component parts, rending him down until nothing is left. For nearby Dark Eldar this is like watching an artist at work. For nearby foes it is a horrifying, gut-wrenching sight that can turn even the bravest warrior into a quivering wreck. The Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Cronos Parasite Engine is a disturbing, bizarre creation and is used, much like the Talos, as a torture device and war machine. Through the strange blend of alchemy and science practiced by the Haemonculi covens, the Cronos drains away not the physical constituents of its victims, but their life essence. What remains of its prey when the vile creature has drunk its fill is little more than a grey shrivelled husk that quickly collapses into dust. An Archon will often keep a Cronos in his employ for when realspace raids take longer than expected as their mere presence can drive the Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar into a murderous frenzy that few defenders can hope to stop.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 89 components with which to make one Drukhari Talos Pain Engine or one Cronos Parasite Engine. The box includes all manner of features: chain-flails, ichor injectors, a liquefier gun and many syringes, as well as several variant heads and arms. It is a remarkably macabre addition to any Drukhari collection.

Imperial Knight Armiger Helverins, Warhammer 40,000 is a multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 2 Armiger Helverins. Smaller and more lightly armoured than their larger Imperial Knight brethren, standing at around half the height, they nevertheless share a lot of details – the basic shape of these bipedal weapon platforms are similar to a standard Imperial Knight, with 2 weapon arms, hydraulically-driven legs, tilting plate and a large carapace surrounding the central head of the suit. Another detail in common with those larger suits is their loadout; for their diminutive size they’re incredibly powerful, specialising in ranged combat. Each is armed with 2 Armiger autocannon and a carapace-mounted heavy stubber, the latter of which can be replaced with a meltagun. 4 unique faceplates are supplied in the kit, and both weapons (which feature articulation at the shoulder) and legs can be attached to either side of the model, allowing for some customisation of pose.
This kit comes as 120 components, and is supplied with 2 Citadel 100mm Round bases, as well as an Armiger Transfer sheet.

Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault is an action-packed combat game for two players. Build your warband, construct your deck, and defeat your rivals.
Shadespire was once a city of wonder and magic, a mercantile metropolis whose rulers defied death, to the fury of Nagash. During the height of the city’s powers, rivals, thieves and would-be conquerors were locked away in the sprawling dungeon known as the Nightvault. After the city’s fall, Nagash broke open the chains that bound the shackled spirits within, giving them weapons to freeze the hearts of the living and enough memory of their torment to fill them with hatred and jealousy. The spectral dead delight in the chance to inflict this hatred upon the living, and the streets of Shadespire echo to the sounds of terrifying screams and cruel, mocking laughter...
In Warhammer Underworlds, you and your opponent pick a warband – 2 are included in this box – and build a deck of power and objective cards. After placing your warband on the hex-tiled game boards, you take turns making actions – movement and attacks – until 3 phases are played. Between actions, you can use the power cards to introduce effects and reactions that can swing the battle in your favour; building the best deck you can and using cunning to deploy these abilities at the perfect time is the secret to mastering the game and dominating your foe. Merely vanquishing your opponent’s warband does not guarantee victory – capturing objectives, standing your ground, making the best tactical choices and deploying the right cards at the right time will gain you the glory points you need to win!
Once you’re familiar with the rules, games will take around 30 minutes – you’ll always have time for a rematch.
