The Giants are coming ... ... and they'll fight for just about anyone who can afford to pay them. The new Giant is one of the best Citadel miniatures ever. The kit has been designed so you can make one of four Giants: Orcs & Goblins, Dogs of War, Ogre Kingdoms and Chaos, but you can mix bits up as you please, and as the plastic frames are crammed full of extras, no two need look the same. Besides appearing in four Army books, Giants are also available as Dogs of War for a wide range of Warhammer Armies. I expect to see plenty of these lumbering behemoths on the battlefield over the next few months. 205 points is not too high a price to pay for such a ferocious monster that causes Terror, has loads of Wounds and a bag full of special attacks that can turn an elite regiment into a pancake in short order. I think I'll add one to my Empire Nuln army with a Great Cannon club conversion! For the Greater Good Last month I talked about the new Tau Empire Citadel miniatures being released on April 1 st. I forgot to mention the Battleforce and Tau Piranha Skimmer Team. With these great value kits, you can maximise the Greater Good of your Tau army - the Battleforce saves you a massive £20 on buying the models separately, and the Piranha Team £5! Desert War This Summer a World Will Die We've also got a special Tallarn and Imperial Armour IV feature, including Taros Campaign designer's notes, new scenario, Tallarn Combat Patrol showcase and desert fighting rules. The Taros Campaign pits Tau against Space Marines and Tallarn Imperial Guard. The background to this Easter's in-store activities centres on this mighty tome that's available to buy in our Hobby Centres, now. With the release of the new Warhammer 40,000 buildings, the Cities of Death book and a whole host of new models accompanying The Fall of Medusa V campaign (see this month's news pages), this year Warhammer 40,000 players are in for a real treat. Those of you who don't currently play may want to think seriously about starting ... I know my Tahnelian Drop Troops are reinforcing for the coming war making landfall at Sybil la Tertius Hive. Till next time fellow hobbyists, .
