McFarlane Warhammer 40k Dark Angel Intercessors and Chaos Space Marines

The next wave of the McFarlane Warhammer 40k figures will see a return to the Space Marines after the recent Ork and Genestealer releases. The wave will see the first Dark Angels marine as well as the first Chaos Space Marine in the line.



As is now standard, the wave features two painted figures as well as two unpainted 'Artists Proof'. For the Dark Angels we have an Assault Intercessor Sergeant, armed with plasma pistol and chainsword. The unpainted Artists Proof is of a standard Dark Angels Intercessor Marine with Bolter. I hope this one also gets a painted release as the sculpt looks great with the Dark Angels iconography.



"The Dark Angels are a dour brotherhood, characterised by their deep commitment to millennia-old rituals, loyalty, discipline, and self-sufficiency. They are a fighting force whose allegiance to the Emperor and his Imperium is nigh impossible to dispute, yet few call them friends, and none know much of them thanks to their determined reclusiveness."



The Chaos Legions are now getting some McFarlane support with the first Chaos Space Marines in the line. The painted release is listed on the box simply as a Chaos Space Marine, considering the specifics used on the other releases it would have been good to acknowledge this as a Black Legion Chaos Marine as indicated by the black and gold armour. He is armed with a bolt pistol with bayonet and a knife. The artists proof is arguably the more impressive figure as it features a spiked shoulder armour piece, skull-shaped backpack, unmasked and twisted head, and is armed with a plasma pistol and a power mace. Again, I do hope this gets a painted release in the near future.



"Not even the Space Marines are safe from the lure of Chaos. Whether they hail from the dark days of the Horus Heresy or turned traitor more recently, these baleful warriors combine their gene-given gifts with dark blessings and malefic sorceries, transformed by years of battle into fearless, superhuman reavers."



All of these figures are now open for pre-orders at your McFarlane stockists and have a release date of July 2022.
