Warhammer 40,000: Imperium – Issue 5 Review

I’ve managed to get some painting down this week, even if it is some base colours.

Primaris Lieutenant

The Primaris Lieutenant nears ever closer to being finished with just some detailing, his backpack and the base to go.

Necron Warriors

The Necron Warriors are also nearly finished with their weapons and bases to be finished.

Assault Intercessors

The Assault Intercessors are some way from being completed with only their white armour segments having been laid down so far.

Skorpekh Destroyers

The Skorpekh Destroyers have only had their base coat of Iron warriors metal completed.

Issue 5

So issue five is here with a shiny new Space Marine Captain who is unique to the Imperium series. I’m not a massive fan of the sculpt but I’ll paint it up and see how I feel about it when it’s done.

This issue sees the usual painting guides and construction guides for the captain as well as the now very loved (by me at least) fluff generator.

We also learn a little about the wargear of the Space Marines in the 41st millennium. There’s also a short story which introduces you to the Chaos Space Marines of Crimson Slaughter as they clash with a chapter of loyal primaris marines.

There’s another battle, this time the captain faces of against the three Skorpekh Destroyers from last issue.

Next week we have three Primaris Aggressors, which again is a full unit and excellent value for only £8. The week after there are no models but at two paints. That week should give me the opportunity to catch up on this ever growing back log at least…..

Warhammer 40,000: Imperium – Issue 4

Previous posts:

Issue 1
Issue 2
Issue 3

Unfortunately my work week has been extremely busy this week and I’ve not managed to get any painting time in yet. This means that my Imperium backlog is slowly mounting up, with the list now standing at:

  • Space Marine Lieutenant
  • 3 Assault Intercessors
  • 3 Necron Warriors
  • 3 Skorpekh Destroyers
  • 1 Plasmacyte

Still, with the paint scheme I’m going for on the Necrons, I know those at least will be fairly quick to do.

Issue 4

I mentioned at the end of the article last week what good value issue 4 is, and its worth repeating now. In this issue you receive a pot of Leadbelcher paint worth £2.75 plus three Skorpekh Destroyers and a Plasmacyte. As I also mentioned the equivalent kit on Games Workshop goes for £34.50 on the Games Workshop site:

For an issue worth £8 this is a bargain, with nearly £40 worth of goodies included. You’re also given a lovely thick battle matt to replace the smaller one given to you in issue 1.

The issue itself is the same as the others so far with lore, building and painting guides. The lore this week covers the creation of a Space Marine and their progression within a chapter. You’re given the obligatory battle record for the Skorpekh Destroyers and the more I see of these battle records the more I love them.

You’re also given the biggest battle to date where you can line up your Lieutenant and Assault Intercessors against the Skorpekh Destroyers and Plasmacyte. I will play through these scenarios once I have painted the models and post the results here to create my own little story of the war between the Void Dragons and Necrons.

Next weeks issue sees a Space Marine Captain enter the fray, and this model is one that is unique to the Imperium magazine series as it is currently unavailable through the Games Workshop website.
