Imagine, if you will, the industrial efficiency and mechanised assaults of the Armageddon Steel Legion. Now combine that with the grim demeanour and unflinching sacrifice of the Death Korps of Krieg. What if you added the refined weapons of the Vostroyan Firstborn to the disciplined firing lines of the Mordian Iron Guard? Catachan strength paired with Attilan speed? Yes please.
These combos are a very real possibility in the new Codex: Astra Militarum – first available in the Cadia Stands Astra Militarum Army Set, which arrives for pre-order on the 12th of November.
Instead of constraining you to a single specific regiment, the new codex has you mix and match tactics to create your favourite flavour of Guardsmen. All you need to do is choose a pair of Regimental Doctrines to dictate how they fight. These doctrines represent traits like superior artillery skills, high-quality armour, impressive discipline amongst the ranks, or experience in guerilla warfare.
There are 15 doctrines making 93 different combinations, allowing you to build an iconic regiment from the lore, or cook up a custom force with its own history and home world.
