It’s on its way, but sadly little info at the moment beyond a single banner on their FB Page.

I reckon it could be an assault or Devastator squad?

Must remember to order Series 2 this month. Get them before they’re gone.

Probably assault and devs aye, with something like a specialist like an Apothecary, Librarian or Chaplain filling out the rare slot.

Only managed to get one of series one in the end, still need nine more to play the game.

I have all of both series except the captain from series 1 and the banner bearer from series 2. I will absolutely get series 3 as long as it isn't a chapter specific set. I'd bet on either Vanguard and Sternguard squads, or Primaris.

I’m betting it’s Primaris.

Maybe it’s just me but I keep hoping they change up the gimmick and do one piece of a larger mini on each of the sprues... a collect to build something Centurion or Techmarine with servo harness or bike sized.

Aren’t they blind buy (in JPN anyway)?
I don’t know how multi part would work for that

Bandai does that a lot with some of the Gashapon stuff. It wouldn't be too crazy for G-Dubs to do it.

Y'know, now that you've said that...it would be cool if they did it so that it had parts for a Terminator Armored Librarian, Chaplain, or something like that.

hopefully similar to the "ultramarines" & "BA", i.e. no chapter specific details. Please no primaris(even tho I like them) I just want better individual poses for "regular" marines. make them after GW have gone thru and done each kit needing a new sculpt.

I love the series 1 marines and have been taking any doubles I get and kitbashing them. They look great and cant wait for the terminators series 2 to be released in USA.

This picture has been doing the rounds today. It looks suspiciously Deathguardy, but the rumours on Japanese twitter are that it is a Dark Angels assault squad. Like the previous sets it probably won't include any chapter specific iconography.

No, series 2 hasn't had any sort of world wide release yet only in Japan,

we'll have to wait and see if it comes over too but if the first sold out as its seems to have done I should think it eventually will

Post by: porkuslime


So, late to the party as usual.. my understanding of these "Heroes Series" are..

A. Blind Buy packs.. no idea what you are getting when you purchase...

B. Series 1 has 12 guys, Series 2 has 5 terminators

All are mono-pose.. but there is a slight chance of conversion possiblilities if you get a duplicate.

That about right?

Why would anyone want one of these guys, unless they are being sold as "limited edition pose" models.. I mean, if I WANTED to, I could recreate these guys with the Tactical Squad set, right?

Im just confused.. Since I am working on a Marine force using ONLY Beakie Heads and Studded Shoulderpads on all guys.. this SOUNDS like Series 1 probably isn't too helpful for me.. and since my terminator squads are all Helmeted.. Series 2 wont be of value either, unless I can swap a head or 2..


Space Marine Heroes Series 3 - all images added to OP. @ 2019/04/28 00:56:33


Post by: OrkPlayer137


All series 2 models come with both helmet and bare head options.

Also, many of the poses are unique in series 1 and cannot all just be recreated from the box set, particularly e.g. the bandolier grenade model, the running model with a bolter slung beneath his backpack, etc.

The Japanese release had 12 guys. The worldwide release only had 9, with the remaining models used in one of GW's boardgame releases.

I would actually like if it was Salamanders Assault Marines. The color is right. They would fit the theme fairly well (Assault Marines have Flamers on some of the Marines). But Dark Angels fit as well (Plasma Pistols on the Sergeant and some of the regular Marines). I would be fine with either, but give some of the "forgotten" Chapters some time to shine!

Maybe they are changing it up and it will be Nurgle marines? It says "Heroes" so... maybe not? If I were wish listing I would hope for Salamander Primaris.

There is 13 figures in the first series. The Japanese rhino box set had 12 in it and the captain was released as a special offer. The rest of the world box set has 9 and the adventures game has 5. One figure is repeated between the two boxes.
Space Marine Adventures
Brother Infernus - flamer
Sergeant Cassius - chainsword
Brother Frostclaw - combat knife
Brother Gabriel - auspex
Brother Grimm - heavy bolter
You can read about the rest of the characters here
https://spacemarineheroes.com/

Series 2 has 7 terminators. The standard bearer only comes in a paint set (1 model, 12 paints, and a brush).

It was my understanding that the rhino box set came with 2 sets of the 12 guys plus the MkVIII captain.

At least that's how the website seemed to word it.

In Japan, the Captain wasn’t a blind pack, but a separate box. Rhino contained two of each

Sorry I could have worded that better. The rhino box has 24 figures. You may or may not get all 12. Chapter Master Valrak on YouTube did a unboxing and he did not get all 12. The captain was a separate purchase.

Whose that next to the standard? I thought it was five terminators, the captain, and the standard came in the paint set. But I don't know whose between the thunder hammer wielder and the banner. Looks like a servo skull or something on the side.

I think the text on that New York Toy Fair box says 9 to collect, so two more than were available in the original Japanese release! That's interesting. Curiously, the heavy flamer model isn't included, and so that makes 10 models in total.

Well, on one hand, nice to see them branch out from loyalists, even though I wouldn't have said no to some bikes or assault marines.

On the other hand, Plague Mairnes? Eh... Ok cool. Not gonna knock back some variety. But i'll agree with mortar_crew. Bezerkers or Noise marines would have been have been awesome for a real change of pace.


Kinda hope though that some of these will turn out to be alternate sculpts for the DG characters. If that staff is in fact a less gakky plaguecaster, then that would be welcomed. I don't know who designed the baby throwing his porridge everywhere that came in DI, but they need a slap.
Also, hopefully DG in something other MkIII armour. MkII or V would be terrific.

I too would have preferred Deathwatch. I can't help but think that Chaos isn't a good choice for an ostensibly mass market gashapon style release but it's for Japan and not the NA/EU market; if frisky tentacles can be a long running thing there then I guess pimple marines can be too...

This is what they should have done initially for the Marine ones. They'll be as valuable as limited edition figures, etc. And plague marines are fine - I won't be using them, but it's a much smarter move ----- and they were never going to launch two of their new project armies with this product line.

There's a hobby show in Japan right now, I think.

Death Guard was unexpected. I'll be needing these. It looks like they're continuing the trend of including helmets and bare heads, which is very nice.

Hold up, I hadn't seen this image. This is not the same as the Japanese release. Some of the figures in there are new. It looks like there's four melee guys in there plus the flamer guy has been replaced with an assault cannon! The original set had only two melee guys, the one with the lightning hammer/storm shield combo and the guy with the lightning claws. This looks like it has two lightning hammer guys and two lightning claw guys.

That....depends.

For the Heroes stuff, there's a single Looter who can provide. He posts up the exact cost in Yen, which you then need to process into your own currency (or use PayPal, which I believe sorts that out?)

For other stuff, it'll depend where it's appearing, and who's doing the Looting.

I'm having some time off due to personal pressures taking up a great many spoons, and indeed time. But once I'm back, and with Mod Approval, I'm happy to run a thread here to get goodies to the good.

Post by: Mad Doc Grotsnik


Sadly, it doesn't. Looter is very specific that he only deals in full and half boxes.

Which is fair enough.

However, we do have a swap-shop in the group for the Heroes range. It was one of the other Mods that set it up, and it's pretty much one-for-one, barring the Captain model (though the Japanese Looter can sort that out for you).

Essentially, any Looting I arrange on Dakka via a thread will be subject to the same rules (including all payments via PayPal, and all as Goods and Services. Helps deter would be rip off merchants). I'll make sure I know what they are as and when!

Though if your Dakka flag is correct, postage can be a stinger.

Then again, if you're after something like Event Only models (like the Terminator Chaplain etc), if there's a few of your friends wanting it, that helps spread the postage cost, as I'd personally just send them all to one person, and let you sort it out from there!

And yes we do relatively bulk orders. Record was 20+ Chaplains for a chap in the States, ordering them in for his military mates!

I'm namely after the Series 1&2 marines and soon to be 3 as well. Plus the event chaplain/captain. Can the WHW exclusive stuff also be loot grouped? There's a few things from there i'd like as well.

They can indeed.

We've a couple of peeps a spit and stones throw away from Warhammer World, so stock allowing, Looting from there is pretty reliable. Plus of course the usual cycle of Nerds on Pilgrimage. And that of course includes Bugman's merchandise, much of which is really quite nice.

It's pretty much anything event or locale exclusive. We have done the odd bit of FW looting in the past, but as we rely quite heavily on GW's goodwill, we've curbed it of late, so as not to irk anyone.

Series 1&2 Marines? That's our Man in Japan you need. Not 100% sure if the first series is actually still in production over there.

The wording suggests a worldwide release will follow Japan.

"Initially set for release in Japan, this is a collectable set of models featuring a range of new Death Guard miniatures, each one swarming with disease, pus and pestilence."

It's the disney point. Pointer and middle finger paired together is about the only expressive gesture that is not, in some major world culture, considered offensive. So in most popular media intended for global marketing you'll see people pointing and gesturing with two fingers.

It's just called the "disney point" because they did the initial research to figure it out.

The Primaris also have the two finger point. At my job, they want us to do that kind of point, since one finger pointing can be seen as offensive. Though, I doubt that's why he's doing it. I feel like he's uncurling his hand, and letting flies fly off of it, like a person that let's a bird feed out of their hand and fly off.

Can anyone tell if he's standing on a maggot, or is that maggoty mouth his foot?

Also, Drippy McDripperson looks a lot better without his helmet. The weepy eye hole doesn't do anything for the model

new plague marines is always a good thing. By their own nature the multibox kit lacks a good bunch of customization so having a good amount of different sculpts is very nice.

Also that caster looks ace, much better than the baby faced with the pudding spoon of Dark Imperium.

Previous 'blind' boxes have been set up such that you got 2 full sets in a big box (S1 I cant remember if S2 was only one full set) so somebody who wanted them all tended to get a big box (maybe to split with another person, maybe to offer singles at 'cost')

if you wanted it all it should be easy enough,

if you only want a single specific one you'll need to post a want in the appropriate thread and hope somebody's got one they want to sell

If we do get more marines, scouts would be great. Or Deathwatch. Each marine actually have chapter specific bling, like Kill Team Cassius.

I'd be fine with Deathwatch, but half of them would inevitably end up being 1st founding chapters, which would just be boring. Give us a bunch of chapters that we haven't already seen in either Kill team Cassius or the Kill Team box and it'd be grand. Unfortunately I just don't see them missing a chance to throw another white U in there.

Based on the group it's very likely that it was for that person bulk ordering for his friends or local crew. Or instead I guess we could just close the group full of really lovely people who are happy to help out and go out of their way to offer exclusive models at cost.

I take it back. I like Drippy McDripperson's leaky helmet. I feel like he's hollow, and his armor is just filled with the pus that he sprays from his weapon. I can't wait to see the rest of them.

None of the other series had extra addition to the scenic bases, a la fly/nurgling, so its cool to see them adding even more to the range.

Series 1 had 2 sets(though there are reports of some boxes containing some triples instead of 2 full sets) plus the additional external Captain for buying a full box, Series 2 only had 1 set with the Captain included in the box.

I doubt the group is 'helping' scalpers. It'd be pretty obvious if someone was always ordering multiples of the same thing.

Anyway, the guy in Japan has already said that he's ready to take care of orders for Series 3 once he has more details of when/where/how much.

Pretty decent prices from what I can see (the full Series 2 was under AUD$100 including shipping from Japan).

Don't get me wrong, it's a great idea to help out fellow hobbyists, but my point is that there is seemingly nothing to stop scalpers from using the service too.

I agree that I'm a cynic, totally.

I disagree with your assessment that the guy is telling the truth. Think of the odds required for them to know 20 people who are all into the same niche hobby on the same army base who all want exactly the same figure.

Simple solutions are more likely to be correct than complex ones.

Without derailing too much, he might A talk to people at several bases to organize such a thing, through their own group of some kind, and he was just the one to order (free shipping base to base once he has collected all).
B maybe they know he was doing that honestly as a few of the buddies are in the group too or any number of other options.

Thing is, you’re basing it on that one sentence, others on the group may know a lot more on what happened..

As I said, I'm naturally a cynic, Doc seems to be the opposite. I applaud him for his apparent altruism but can't help but feel that the group is open to being abused.

It’s a risk, sure.

Mr 20 Chaplains? Put in touch with me by the store I was Looting anyway.

And we do keep tabs, as per group rules. If we catch people flipping in a scalping manner, it’s a permaban.

So far? We’ve had no more than two instances. And we’ve an admin shared across some of the larger trading groups.

Is it foolproof? No. But the good far outweighs the bad. Without us, every Chaplain, Ixion Hale, Anniversary Model et al in the second hand market would be scalper fodder, one way or the other.

I want these. In Japan are there any major chains that carry these? Do we have any idea of a time frame for release?

Places like BIC Camera and Yodabashi Camera for sure carry them and they're usually located in all the big shopping areas of most major cities.

Yellow Submarine is a bit more specialized but I recall them carrying GW stuff and they're in a lot of the major cities as well.

I wish Joshin stocked GW. We've at least got a couple in Niigata.

Thing is, you’re basing it on that one sentence, others on the group may know a lot more on what happened..


Yeah, I am basing it on that one sentence. I'm sure that others in the group know a hell of a lot more than I do!

As I said, I'm naturally a cynic, Doc seems to be the opposite. I applaud him for his apparent altruism but can't help but feel that the group is open to being abused.

Anyway, I love the Plaguecaster and will be picking one up when the time comes


Im one of the other admins of the FB Loot group and a regular UK event looter with over 10 events looted so far and receipts that would make scalpers cry for losing mass profits , i dont blame you for your outlook on the group and in someway i agree with you(sometimes i live up to my names meaning, its Tom) if people are ordering 2 of the same item my spider sense starts to tingle but with duel builds etc ordering 2 can be fine and those ordering more than 2 really set my spider senses off, as in the 20 chaplain guy and a guy i helped get 4 B/day minis but without hard evidence we have to give them the benefit of doubt, but we do pay attention to their future purchases in the group, tbh most people only order 1 mini

Known scalpers and bad traders are kept out of the group as best we can, as like what Mad Doc has said the other admins are also admins of a couple of the big warhammer trading groups, who also converse with other trading groups admin, so we have a nice list of bad traders etc.

The group isnt setup perfectly but id certainly wager a quid or two we have helped far more people avoid being scalped than helping the scalpers themselves and i certainly rather have the group than not and go back to paying scalpers prices!

Back on topic, these DG minis look great and i hope to get them all, might have to tap up the groups Japanese looter, as what is the time from Japan release to UK release 12 months!?

Also do we know what they work out compared to UK prices?
Ignoring shipping of course as that’ll vary on numbers.

I wasn’t ever tempted by the first, as it seemed too much for a squad of marines (though if one had been particularly cool a single purchase or two would have been good).
These may do it though.

Also, the time between series one (and possibly two, depending on that gap) may not be a good judge of time.
I’m pretty sure when the first we’re done it was never with Uk in mind, as Japan gets loads of collectibles and blinds that I think would sell well in the west these days, but don’t always make it over..

Series 1 was apparently released September 2017 in Japan,

and the partial release (9/12) apparently arrived in November 2018 (did the USA only box game with the rest happen earlier or later? my memory is hazy, I know the game announcement was earlier)

Ok, so 14 months then for the first. Apparently

What about season twos dates, was it less between perhaps? That helps my theory



Also, I don’t think I even saw this US only thing..

I just pre-order them from either Hobby Japan (hlj.com) or Amiami (amiami.com). Both of these sites are in English, and the shipping charges are very reasonable.

Going to have to have my brother pick these up when he goes back to Japan later this year.
I'm so pleased that they are switching chapters (and even doing 'non-Hersey era' chaos chapters). I could see Eldar, and tau doing well in Japan also, though, it kind of goes against calling the series 'Space Marine Heroes'. I also like that series one was regular marines, series 2 was terminators. Would like to see jump packs, or other specialized stuff for future series. But, I kind of like that the Plague marines are actually the 'heroes'. They seem to, from what we've seen, be a sorcerer, standard bearer, and heavy weapon.

Now watch them do a whole series of CSM with Reaper Chain cannons...

I'm mostly intrigued to see the 'pleb' level Deathguard. See, since GW decided to have solidly monopose for the main ones? Any variety is welcome. And the Series 1 plebs were pretty fancy for all their plebbishness.

That's usually a horned skull (for Imperials, at least). I think the teased image is more likely to be a Captain or officer, judging by the Iron halo-like belt decoration.

Perhaps the 'secret' Captain from Series 1 will go on general release at this event?

+Edit+
Ah, not him – different detail on that model.

+Edit II – The Editing+
Actually, that abdomen detail looks like Primaris armour (odd little soft armour areas).

Ah-ha! Perhaps this chap?

Although it’s more expensive for the box, at least that Plaguecaster isn’t a blind buy.

Shaving horns, cutting tentacles and sealing unwanted mouthes on your body is a daily routine for Plague Marines. If you forget that, you can't even wear power armour at some point and finally look like this.

Its an affliction that affects another one of the upcoming Plague Marines. Maybe he'll give his helmet to his nurgling friend?

Good to see a second guy with flail, that one Marine in the multipose Set was... lonesome.

Man I really hate the way they are making drops and drips lately. Giant oversized cartoon teardrop shapes, with multiples stacked in a row. It looks really odd and poorly executed. I don't mind stuff oozing out of parts, but make it look right at least. It makes even less sense to put so much on when they sell technical paints for it also.

Minus the nurglings, these guys are leaps better than some of the current Deathguard line.

It’s just a shame there’s only 7.
I knew there were going to be, it just made sense, but I was hoping and hoping for maybe 10 still..

I don't think I'd be disappointed by getting any of them, they're all great models. Only real gripe are the bolter barrels seem pretty wide. Something just looks off with thm

He is! The Nurgling is also wearing one on its horn.

While it might not be enough, I feel like the fact they have alternate heads has to count for something.

I'm absolutely loving the alternative heads, a couple of them would also work well as Emperor's Children with some minor work.

I'll be picking up all of these when they are available!

There is a Facebook loot group where one of the members is prepping to take orders.

Failing that, wait for a year plus and hope GW release them here like they did for Series One.

So wait... Are there only 7 'because' of the alternate heads? ie 3 with 2 head sculpts, and one with just one? Or is it 7 'different' figures, with several having alternate heads?

It is, but there's one unfortunate oversight there that I can't un-see now that I have.
What happens to his horn when he puts his helmet on?

I only see 4 poses, and 7 heads. Are you saying that’s all, or are there more than that?

There are more than those updated in the first post. A few pages back or something, there's a grenade pose and a sergeant. I forget the 7th sculpt.

Also spotted at GenCon are two more Terminators for the Season 2 release.

Will grab pic as soon as I'm able. One has an Assault Cannon, the other is Stormbolter and Powerfist.

Not gonna lie, I'd think that's a good thing?

I was worried it would be the chase figure.

I'd prefer it if it was a blind buy like the rest of them, I mean I really don't fancy paying for a load of paints that I have no use for.

Also, I'm guessing that the paint set will be more difficult to find than the regular figures, at least for buyers outside of Japan.

I'm really hoping these guys do well, and they decide to not only sell them outside of Japan, but expand and do more deathguard (maybe even Blightlord Terminators, or Deathshroud ).

That said, I hope they at the very least, continue to do a different chapter of SM every series.

This would be a really fun way to refresh some of the chapters with older models. Who wouldn't love to see some Deathwatch, Grey Knights, Rhubrics, Nightlords, added to the mix as well?

The first two sold so well, that it ain’t stopping after this for sure

I think each will only get one series though, lots of different chapters to cover etc

As long as they sell well, there will be more series. I'd like to see Deathwatch, Rubrics, and the Legion of the Damned myself (in that order). May even get a few of series 3 when it is released in the US.
