Their planet may be dead and their armies scattered, but the Astra Militarum’s greatest heroes have soldiered on. The Cadian Shock Troops are back – with a vengeance.
Called Cadia Stands, this Army Launch Set is the start of a huge overhaul for the Astra Militarum range, bringing new and highly detailed kits to the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000.
The box contains 20 Cadian Shock Troops, a Command Squad, a Field Ordnance Battery, and a Sentinel – plus a spoilerific codex that we can’t show quite yet – but these are far from the only new miniatures coming for the Astra Militarum.
A squad of Cadian Shock Troops packs in more special weapons than a standard Infantry Squad, leaving the Heavy Weapons Team behind for greater mobility.
Cadian Command Squads wring more from your infantry too, issuing orders and rallying nearby Guardsmen when the going gets a little too tough
In addition to tripod-mounted heavy weapons, Astra Militarum regiments have begun wheeling larger artillery pieces to the front lines. Equipped with large-bore cannons, multi-missile launchers, or heavy, overcharged lascannons, Field Ordnance Batteries are the most powerful man-portable assets available.
We’ve already seen the armoured variant of the Sentinel– revealed alongside the new Lord Castellan of Cadia, Ursula Creed – but the kit also makes a classic Scout Sentinel complete with open canopy and chainsaw attachment.
In addition to the miniatures contained in the Army Launch Set, two more classic units are getting a well-earned update.
Fresh troops need a new Commissar to watch over them, and this stern individual will make sure the Cadians become the best soldiers they can be – or die trying.
