The 41st Millennium is full of surprises, not many of them good – daemons popping out of the warp every time you get a headache, Genestealer Cults bursting from the vents, Drop Pods full of ancient transhumans with a 10,000-year chip on their shoulder screaming from orbit…
Thankfully for those of us that inhabit the real world, there are surprises in store that you can get excited about. Space Marine blind boxes are returning in the Space Marine Heroes 2022 Set 1.
If you aren’t familiar with blind boxes, they’re simple. There are six sculpts of Space Marine Heroes – this time in the form of Blood Angels – packaged into mystery boxes you can pick up at a variety of stores or online. Each box gives you a chance of getting any one of the six – or if you buy the whole dispensary, you’ll be guaranteed to get one of each, plus two duplicates for a total of eight miniatures!
These Space Marine Heroes are push-fit miniatures in red plastic, stood atop a textured rubble base. They’re armed with a mix of weapons – from classic bolters to brutal heavy weapons – and each can be built with your choice of a bare head or helmet. You might have seen these models before in Ultramarine blue, but they’re now firmly on the side of Sanguinius.
You’ll be able to order these red rogues from selected outlets from the 30th of July, and then from the Games Workshop webstore and Warhammer stores from the 1st of October. Each box will cost £5 and a full dispensary pack of eight will be £40 – see below for the equivalent in your territory.
