Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11: Issues 39-42 Review – Introduction

With Delivery 11, we cross the half-way point for the Warhammer 40,000: Imperium partworks magazine. What’s been your favourite bit so far?

Mine arrived with this delivery!

It’s been a mixed bag so far, it has to be said. Whilst the service started strong with some fabulous models and insane savings, the momentum petered out about a quarter of the way through. We had a lot of scenery-heavy deliveries, as well as some fairly lacklustre Necron-centric issues.

But with Delivery 11, things look to be getting back on track. With the Adeptus Mechanicus bidding us farewell, space is opened us for the Adepta Sororitas to take centre stage. There’s also an excellent Necron miniature up for grabs.

Let’s take a closer look at everything in this delivery.

Here’s everything that comes with Delivery 11 in a nice little pile.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review All

Emphasis on “little”. However, don’t let looks deceive you. There’s a lot of value in this small but mighty pile of stuff, as well as lots to keep you occupied over the next few weeks.

The Magazines: Issues 39-42

First off, we’ll have a brief, fairly spoiler-free look at the magazines, starting with issue 39.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review Issue 39 1

Issue 39 is the first of two quite lore-heavy Imperium issues. Given the way AdMech has dominated the last few issues, one may expect to see more of the little ab-human Martians.

Whilst there is more info on the Mechanicum, there’s also some background on Tyranids, as well as some service paid to Necrons.

Issue 40’s cover is somewhat misleading. Looking at it, one might be expecting a particularly Chaos-heavy issue, but they’d be wrong.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review Issue 40 1

There’s even more about the Mechanicum, as well as some information on Cadia and Armageddon and the role of Chaos in the conflicts on these two worlds.

There’s also a couple of sides of info on the ever-popular Salamanders for anyone interested in painting their Space Marines bright green.

Issue 40 also comes with a Necron-themed pull-out. If you haven’t yet been inspired into painting your futuristic nightmare robots, this’ll probably do the trick.

Issue 41’s cover features the artwork from the Pariah Nexus box. Fitting, as the miniature that comes with this issue first made its debut in that Kill Team expansion.

Whilst just about every issue of Imperium comes with a page or two of new rules on its back pages, Issue 41 dedicates a lot of time to playing Warhammer 40,000. There are new rules as well as a basic mission pack for players to sink their teeth into.

Finally, we arrive at issue 42. With the Adeptus Mechanicus’ time in the spotlight at an end, new forces within the Imperium of Man are able to take centre-stage.

Heaving with information on the Adepta Sororitas – the Sisters of Battle – Issue 42 is a veritable treasure-trove of facts about the 41st Millennium’s badass warrior nuns.

It’s a great tease, too, as we’re due to see loads more Sisters stuff over coming issues. I for one now cannot wait.

Miniatures

Issues 39 and 40 furnish buyers with the final pair of AdMech miniatures that we’ll be seeing with Imperium. With these, your total should now be up to three.

Remember, you’ll need a couple of parts from the Issue 32 sprue to build them!

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review Kataphron Destroyers

You might be thinking “Damn, Rob, your Kataphron Destroyers look a bit wonky. What’s going on there?” Well, on the short journey I have to undertake from my hobby desk to my lightbox, I managed to drop both Destroyers.

On two separate occasions.

I wish I could say it’s because the models are difficult to hold or something, but this one’s on me. I just dropped them. Both of them. On a tiled floor.

My clumsiness aside, they’re impressive models. They are, however, quite fiddly to put together. There are a lot of parts for each miniature, and this isn’t helped as the assembly guide with Issue 39 is quite bad. Also, a lot of the components are mislabelled in the assembly guide, so remain vigilant.

Issue 41 comes with the only good Necron miniature from the Pariah Nexus box: the Chronomancer.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review Chronomancer

This tentacled, staff-wielding robot space-wizard may look as if he’d be a complicated build, but he’s actually rather straightforward. He also has three head options and two different staff/hand combos. I went for the above configuration as I a) already have a Chronomancer built with the other limb combo and b) this one is a bit easier to do.

Finally, Issue 42 comes with what may be my favourite miniature from Imperium thus far: the awesome Adepta Sororitas Canoness.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11 Review Canoness

This model, who originally came with 2019’s Sisters of Battle Army Set, is now also available in the Sisters Combat Patrol box. You cannot, however, buy her by herself.

As such, if you’re dying for this model, snapping up one of these via the Imperium magazine may be the best – and cheapest – way for you to get one.

It’d be well worth it, too. Look at her. She’s a smashing figure, covered in an incredible amount of detail. She’s a painter’s delight.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11: Issues 39-42 Review – Price and Availability

As ever, we’ve done a couple of tables for you so you can see what the savings aer like this time around.

38$13.95$38.00$24.05
TOTALS$47.80$114.68$58.88

Those are some seriously nice savings. Because to the pricier Necron and Sisters models, the value of this delivery skyrockets.

Well worth that cash, I’d say.

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Delivery 11: Issues 39-42 Review – Final Thoughts

ProsCons
Awesome Necron and Adepta Sororitas models
Great value and awesome savings
Issue 39 build guide isn’t great

Finding fault with this delivery is very difficult. Between four really nice models and the staggeringly good savings available, there’s very little to criticise.

The magazines are, once again, packed full of excellent content and artwork to fire the imagination of any hobbyist, and ther’es plenty of new and exciting rules to keep people playing.

This one’s a no-brainer.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
