Games Workshop will continue its update of the rules for the most iconic Warhammer 40,000 army with the release of two new Codex Supplements next week, each featuring a renowned chapter of the Space Marines:  Raven Guard and Iron Hands, along with Datacards and new minis for each chapter.

Known for their stealth tactics, the Raven Guard are masters of infiltration and silently eliminating their foes.  The Codex Supplement:  Raven Guard details this mysterious chapter and provides rules for using Raven Guard specific wargear and Warlord Traits, as well as their unique Umbramancy psychic discipline.

The Codex Supplement:  Iron Hands reveals the history of the technology-loving “Sons of the Gorgon,” along with their unique wargear and Warlord Traits and Relics.  The Technomancy psychic discipline is also presented.

Both books will be available in hardcover and digital versions.

Each chapter is featured in its own Datacards set, which comes with a full set of Tactical Objectives cards plus quick-reference cards for the chapter’s unique psychic discipline and Strategems.

Modellers who want to convert “generic” Primaris Space Marines to one of these chapters can pick up a Primaris Upgrade and Transfer Set, which includes shoulder pads with the chapter’s icons, accessories and helmets—including the classic “beaky” helmet for the Raven Guard—and transfer decals.

Both chapters also welcome new heroic character models:  Raven Guard’s Chapter Master Kayvaan Shrike and the Iron Hands’ Iron Father Malkaan Feirros, respectively.  A new Primaris Lieutenant in Phobos Armour and a multi-part Eliminators model kit round out next week’s new releases.

Pricing information for the new items have not been announced.
