For the Emperor! A Dark Vengeance is soon to be upon us.

It’s been a few months since Games Workshop released Warhammer 40k 6th Edition and from what I can see, a lot of players feel it’s a good improvement upon 5th.  This of course means that over the next few years we’ll see updated codices for many faction but first off, we have the new 2 player starter box coming very soon (1st September 2012).

It’s called ‘Dark Vengeance’ and features the Emperors’ Dark Angels against chaos, Crimson Slaughter Chaos Space Marines.  We have here a picture of the box (I do like black) and its contents.

There’s plenty of chatter on the net and there’s not much more to be said at the moment but the images released by Games Workshop make you wish time would move forward and hurry up until release day.

First off they are releasing the Limited Edition of the Box set which contains a limited Dark Angel miniature, that of the Dark Angel’s Interrogator-Chaplain Seraphicus and what an amazing figure we have.

Once the Limited Edition is sold out, they’ll be releasing the normal edition.  So if you want Interrogator-Chaplain Seraphicus and knowing GW, the Limited Edition will sell out very quick so I’ve ordered my box set from Wayland Games, and I’d ask you to order from them as well (link below) or from your local independent shop.

So then, what does this Box Set Include?  Well the Limited Edition contains 49 miniatures, plus the much sought after mini-rule book, some dice, markers and more.

Dark Angel Army.

  • Interrogator-Chaplain Seraphicus
  • Dark Angels Company Master
  • Dark Angels Librarian
  • 5 Deathwing Terminators
  • 10 Dark Angel Tactical Marines
  • 3 Ravenwing Bikes

Crimson Slaughter Chaos Space Marine army.

  • Chaos Lord
  • 6 Chosen Chaos Space Marines
  • Hellbrute
  • 10 Close Combat Chaos Cultists
  • 10 Ranged Chaos Cultist

Lastly we have the extras in the box.

  • Mini Rulebook (168 pages)
  • 48 page How To Play Booklet
  • 1 Reference Sheet
  • 1 Flamer Template
  • 1 Small Blast Marker
  • 1 Large Blast Marker
  • 1 Dice Pack
  • 2 Range Rulers

So for your £65 (£58.50 plus P&P from Wayland) that’s one hell of a great deal and the figures do look amazing on both sides.

Here’s a gallery of the miniatures (taken from Games Workshop website) and as you can see, you must buy the box even if you have your own Dark Angels/Chaos Marines. I myself have an almost finished Deathwing Army and now I know where I can find the variance I wanted to help build up the last unit I need….

Not that much to say now really.  Of course go to Games Workshop website and look at what else you need and then go to your Independent shop or if you shop online use Wayland Games.

Anyway until next time (when the box arrives) I’ll let you know what I really think.

Until then, For the Emperor!
