    Tempestus Scions and Taurox from Games Workshop

    GW have released some Astra Militarum Tempestus Scions and the Taurox, along with a Militarum Tempestus Codex, all for Pre-Order.

    In English, thats the new IG Storm Troopers (In plastic! Finally!) and a fugly camper van thing that looks like The Rock's tank from Fast and Furious 5 (but on tracks.)

    £21 for 5 troops, buildable as a squad of Scions or as a Command Squad and £29 for the Taurox.

    Available from the GW website (and hopefully all good independent GW Stockists shortly)

    Pictures of the Scions (Taurox in the next post)

    The Taurox surely got to be an early april's fool joke, right? Looks like a child's toy from Toys 'R Us. Bad. The Imperial Guard soldiers are quite okay, don't got any problems with them.

    Troops look quite nice although they could easily be space marine scouts with a weapon swap.

    The Taurox however really doesnt seem right. Think its the dual tracks.
    The idea is clearly meant as a urban transport/ support instead of the larger chimera.

    This vehicle simply looks silly.

    The troops in the Friday the 13th Jason Mask I'm still undecided, the 'Taurox' silly name probably followed by next months release the 'Rhinean'.

    I really didn't think they could get any worse than the Dwarven mobility copter and the they pull out this monstrosity.

    All I can say is

    Is it just me, or do the ones in the 3rd 4th picture down look like sad-face robots?

    That tank is just... bad. The troopers are alright, as Kasrkin replacements go. How they'll stretch this into a new mini codex or whatever they do these days is a mystery to me though!
