Yes, “Review for Miniature Painters” – so what that means is – I’m not looking at the rules or which model does what. As far as I’m concerned Space Marines go pew-pew and Bikes go Vrooom. This review is specifically aimed at people who care most about these gorgeous new models and some of the considerations to make whilst painting them.

So strap in and let’s get started

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Summary

This boxed set just explodes with value. sure it’s priced higher than the last 40K edition but the amount, range & scale of models here is insanely good.

Indomitus is clearly something special and whilst this “limited” set was always intended that way – I think it’s quite clear Games Workshop will have variations of this set hitting the shelves soon. I mean can you imagine people walking into a Warhammer store and not having any kind of get started kits on the shelf? There’s clearly another box coming!

But if you can get your hands on one of these, just wow!

That being said, as a starter kit, it perplexes me that these two opposing force (Space Marines & Necrons) would be put together in an introductory package. Whatever the future iteration of this may become.

Space Marines Sure, But Necrons are fiddly breakable little buggers and even a seasoned hobbyist will find them frustrating to build, and even more bothersome to cleanup.

Whilst there has been some hate on these models being push-fit I personally prefer this approach. As I like to paint in sub-assemblies, GW has taken all the pinning work away from me and made this simple (for the Space Marines anyway (Necrons – no chance!). Games Workshop has learned much since their last foray into push-fit. the main example being the pegs aren’t wider and longer than the holes they go into. This time they fit snug and don’t leave gaps – again though, for the Space Marines. in the case of the Necrons, it’s like they forgot some of what they had just learned.

But all in all, these models are well varied with only some minor duplication across the 2 rank and file squads. Some impressive sculpts really make these units stand out. which is funny because I never liked Necrons…

I think when I recently saw the new Ossiarch Bonereapers – immediately thought “Come on GW, stop trying to make Necrons Happen, Necrons are never gonna happen”.

Well unlike Amanda Seyfried’s failure with making “Fetch” happen.

Necrons just happened all over the place… and I want more.

Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition Starter Sets

As an update from above, Games Workshop announced the new Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition Starter Sets. Recruit, Elite and Command. See our detailed breakdown in the following article.

Warhammer 40,000 40K Starter Sets - Recruit Edition Featured

We’ll be reviewing each of these sets following the release

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Unboxing

So first up, the box. This unit is heavy. 3.5 KG’s heavy. Absolutely beautiful box art – and you know what, that logo is growing on me.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Box

Inside the box, you are greeted with this double-sided protective artwork. had mine not have been punctured so much by models I’d have framed it. You get two of these in the box as they sandwich the models

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Box Internal Art

Cracking out the sprues and wow, there’s a sea of grey plastic – if you don’t like looking at grey plastic, I’m sorry to say – there’s more to come in this review – and you may be in the wrong hobby – I’d mainline this stuff if I could!

10 Sprues in all – a couple of which are duplicates such as the Necron Warriors and the Space Marine Assault Squad – more on this in a mo.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Box Open Plastic

Below this is a load of stuff I care for very little. A big heavy book which makes up for the majority of the weight in this box. no interest in this – move along.

The Edge of Silence book is about 3 pages of some chaff I haven’t read. and a load of data cards for all the models.

The postcard is nice – maybe I could frame that.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Box Booklets

Behind Edge of Silence os the only paperwork I care about here – The build instructions – Glossed & full-colour pages…

Of grey miniatures.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Build Instructions

Finally, you get the transfers and the bases – the latter of which is tucked beneath the bumpers at the side

Slightly annoyingly this backing card (not pictured as I switched it up) was upside down when I opened my box. The printed faces in the alcoves were the wrong way round – I doubt this matters to anyone. but the people who designed this box probably put hours into the presentation when it comes to the out of box experience.

worth a moment of silence for that person as they ent through all that work just to be let down by slightly poor QA – maybe it’s only me?

Great package, excellent presentation and this was delivered at super high quality!

Right – let’s get onto these models.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Unboxing

The first thing I wanted to point out and only because I’ve not seen this before (am I not paying attention). the first page of the rule book came with this actual size measurement infographic letting you line up your bases to make sure you are using the right size.

despite my experience, when you’re greeted with so much plastic – I’ll admit that I needed to refer back to this a couple of times just to remember which one the 40 was again. oh yeah, it’s the same size one my Stormcast go on.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Bases Size Guide

So just as a quick primer for all these sprues going forward, I’ve done two things.

1. I’ve coloured all the matching parts of each model (where there is more than 1 model per sprue). your welcome

2. I’ve marked the sprue gates to show how difficult they are to remove from the model as follows

  • Green – Super – easy, barely an inconvenience. normally these areas can be cut right up close, as most will be hidden from view anyway (like base pegs). Or they are parts which are against flat parts of the model so may just need slight sand, file or hobby knife shave to stay flat.
  • Amber – (sounds more of a formal warning indicator than Orange). these areas will be mostly on larger but curved surfaces. will require some cleanup afterwards such as a hobby knife shave then a gentle sand
  • Red – use caution. these areas are a bit tricky. they are either large areas which will need a lot of aforementioned aftercare work – or they are gates close to detailed parts you could chop away if you are not careful

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue A

The intercessor sprue is a good place to start though instructions wise it’s somewhere in the middle of the Space Marine Section. this is one of the few sprues where they actually have you build the model in order starting with part number 1.

You get two of these sprues in the set so you end up with a squad having 2 lots of 4 identical marines and some slight variation options on 5th variant.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue A - Assault Space Marines

The first model you build has a number of variants. as a squad leader the chest plate has a shield to depict the wearers honours.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Space Marine Assault Intercessor Squad

You can then select his head and weapon loadout too. The heads are essentially, 1. without a helmet, for which there is also a matching waist accessory the helmet sits on. Or 2. the helmeted version which brandishes a skull – for this one the waist accessory is replaced with a Chainsword.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Interccessor Squad Leader - Options

The third variant of this (from your second sprue) is the normal marine variant. in this case it is the same as option 2 above. Sans shield on the chest plate and the helmet does not have the skull emblem.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Interccessor Squad Leader as Marine

Below (thanks to some photoshop magic) are all 3 varients from the booklet – though I suppose you could chap and change these round however you like really.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Interccessor Squad Leader - Variations

This is where push-fit really comes into play. All of the assault intercessors can be broken down as follows. and quite easily I might add. The old Dark Imperium would see the pegs being ripped off at any attempt to remove them.

That is of course if you could properly get them on in the first place without leaving gaps.

I’m happy to report that for these and all the Space Marines that problem is a thing of the past and now push-fit is here to help, not to hinder. (though to make the heads removable you need to do some minor alteration.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Interccessor Squad Sub Assemblies

Once you have all your models built you are left with quite a few basing materials accessories from the variant of Marine A

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Interccessor Squad Leftover Remaining Components

The Full Squad as shown features as I said two lots of 4 identical marines with a slight variant on the two 5th models…

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Assault Space Marines Squad

They are really dynamically posed – there is some clean-up to do with the mould lines and such, but this is a huge improvement over the Dark Imperium models.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue B

The second sprue houses your Necron Warriors and Canoptek Scarab Swarms. Once again even though this is the second alphabetical sprue. the rulebook would have you build these last.

You don’t want to build these last! Build them first. unless you are a self flatulating sadist – these buggers will test your endurance like little else. I was up until 2 am last night building these and I’ve got to be honest. I could have given up halfway through. Maybe I should have. there are two of these sprues to do. So that’s twenty of the fiddly buggers.

Og any you may notice that unlike the space marine sprue above I haven’t added little markings on the sprue gates to say which re easy, medium and hard. that’s because (bar the feet stumps), they are all a pain in the A!

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue B - Necron Warriors, Canoptek Scarab Swarms - Coloured

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Canoptek Scarab Swarms

These are quite easily marked out as the orange models from the image above. They are fairly straightforward, though the sprue gates neer the small front feet are tricky to get to with a sprue cutter. so take off some sprue initially then trim back lets you cut off some legs. (why do they have legs, aren’t they floating?)

The back ends have the sprue gate on the top of the shell so you will need to shave these back down to keep them flush.

On each sprue, two of the units fit into a rock shaped stand, which then, in turn, pegs into the 40m bases. the other model pegs straight into the base

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Canoptek Scarab Swarms

Just follow the numbers and orientation for this one and you shouldn’t go far wrong.

But the clean-up is annoying.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Warriors

So this is the bit where Wames Workshop has not been kind anyone picking Warhammer Indomitus up as a beginner. these guys are small and fiddly and you have 20 to build.

I would say that thankfully, numbers-wise they have been sensible here. each unit’s components are numbered in increments of 5. So unit A is components 1-5, unit B is 6-10. etc.

Whilst there are variants of both faces and weapons (so each model has 7 components in total), these have been marked as “a” & “b” variants of each.

yet despite all this and my colouring in of the sprue above I still mixed up the odd few arms and faces. Maybe a better set to build one at a time.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Necron Warriors Sub Assemblies

You’re best to follow the guide on this one and do exactly what they say, attach the arm to the weapon then press the left arm into the body. make sure the right arm peg is flush and push the breastplate on between the weapon and the body (without breaking any arms).

The choices in these models are the weapons which allow you to use the long-barreled Gauss Flayer or the stubbier twin-barreled Gauss Reaper. Since you have 20 models, do both.

The other option is the head, well the face anyway. Each model has 2 faces with only minor detail differences in the most part such as where they are banged up and dented. there are some notable exceptions where there is some more detailed damage but these are few and far between.

Then the clean-up, so so much mould lines on so many fiddly pieces. up til now, let me say I haven’t bothered. and I’m somewhat put off them to go back any time soon to pull off the chest plates so I can get into all the fine alcoves and take off the plastic flashing.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Necron Warriors

They are certainly an improvement over the old Necron warriors and whilst the Weapons and face changes are minor, it’s nice that they are at the very least included. I was hoping that I could swap head between models, a bit in the couple of instances I tried, they weren’t exactly a flush fit.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Necron Warriors Spare Parts

By the time you are done, you are left with a plethora of 20 extra face and 20 extra weapons, so expect to see a lot of peoples models having old necron parts in the bases for the forseeable future.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue C

The first of your dedicated sprues come in the box twinned with the Necron Royal Warden and despite being Sprue C, the instruction book would have you build this after Sprue D. I have no idea how Games Workshop’s alphabet works…

…. Elves? Aelves? Are we just throwing letters out of the window and seeing what sticks where?

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Sprue C - Primaris Lieutenant

Generally, a simple sprue to build, just be careful of some of those trickier areas where you have curved surfaces close to detailed parts.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Space Marine Primaris Lieutenant

Subassembly wise this guy is pretty good, Though again you need to modify the head peg to make it removable… Each part will require mould line removal done the edges though the shield does a good job of hiding quite a bit on the left side of the marines body.

The annoying bit is the halo was there is a mould line running both the inside and outside of the spikes. The Mould line remover is no use here. So if you are of the blade using age. get a hobby knife in here.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Lieutenant Sub Assemblies

Again just a fantastic sculpt and he”s accompanied by a Necron head that slots into the base.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Lieutenant

The marine himself also has a hexagonal peg on the foot for slotting into the base, but personally I like to remove these and do the base as a separate item.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue C

The second part of Sprue C is the royal warden and as above every sprue gate on this is awkward, very fine parts and attached to lots of curved surfaces.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue C - Necron Royal Warden

Like the Necron Warriors above there’s no ability to have sub-assemblies with this guy as the chest plate is what holds the arms in place.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Royal Warden

This is one of my favourite sculpts in the set, though as you may see from the left wrist I had some trouble. Unlike the Space Marines where the push-fit pegs are fit just so. The Necrons are a really tight fit, which is more of a pain since they aren’t as stable as the chunky marines.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Royal Warden

The bigger necrons are certainly the more fun of the bunch.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue D

Again a twinned sprue, this time with the Necron Overlord. Pretty simple to remove from the sprue with some trickier areas due to curves and parts next to small details (or both).

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Sprue D - Primaris Captain

There’s a few good optioons with this guy too.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Space Marine Primaris Captain

This one was actually the first model I built in the set (because the instructions told me to). whilst the overall detail of the model is great, there are some details, like the skull on the left hip plate which is lacking compared to some of GW’s more recent products. We’ve seen them do better.

The other issue, and this is the same with many of the Space Marine models, is that mould line running right down the leg and foot. again we have seen better moulds where this runs down natural lines in the armour plates so I wish they had some that here too.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Captain Mould Lines

Again on Sub assemblies, this guy is really good (once again editing the head peg so I can paint it separately). Allowing this much easy access to individual components makes painting details much simpler.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Captain Sub Assemblies

The finished model looks incredible, especially on the complete scenic base plate. You can swap out the Necron model for some debris (shown in front of the base). The whole base can be swapped for just a rock should you prefer and you also have a good selection of heads. that’s what we really need more of in these character models. more head options.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Captain

This is my favourite model from the set, that’s no surprise as this captain quickly became a fan favourite after seeing him in the Launch trailer then finding we would actually get a model brandishing a full skeleton torso on his shield.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue D

Sprue D’s other half is as mentioned the Necron Overlord. Once again, a bit of pain to cut away due to all the rounded parts.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue D - Necron Overlord

pay special attention to part 4 in the top right corner, the spear-tip on the Tachyon Arrow would be very easy to snip away due to its proximity to the sprue gates.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Overlord

Once again this larger Necron model is one of the better units in the set, being bigger just makes it easier to build in general, but also, he looks cooler.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Overlord

Again though with so many fine detailed parts, mould line clean up can be a bit of a pain.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue E

Sprue E is an odd shape as it does not fit within the usual GW sprue sizes. On initial inspection, I thought this could later be repurposed so that in some future set the smaller part of the sprue could be sold as an individual bike.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue E - Primaris Outriders

As we see from the colour coding above. It’s not just one bike on this part of the sprue, in fact, all the parts are spread all over the place.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Primaris Outriders

Before we get into anything else in this part of the review, let’s take a moment to thank the sculptor for these wheels. If you remember the old Space Marine Attack Bike, the wheel would connect in two halves, right down the centre. Gap filling a squad of these was not fun. now however there’s just a mould line yay!

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Outriders Wheel

I’d love to be able to break these down into sub-assemblies but unfortunately, it’s just not that simple. The bikes are built in two parts. the interior of the bike has a hole or the base of the Space Marine to peg into. The outer body of the bike has the legs moulded to it and these legs actually hold the body in place.

With some alterations, you can make this work but I wonder, is it worth the effort? or me, Nah.

The arms are removable which lets us get to areas like the chest plate. just be aware that only some of the arm is connected to the shoulder. the rest of the arm is connected to the handlebars. because marines are sensible and always keep one hand on the wheel.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Outrider Build Instructions

The bikes are some of my favourites in the set. and whilst I and the rest of the Paint Hub mods discussed this on launch day, they were all excited about what the rules could be, all I could contribute with my limited game knowledge was “bikes go vroom!. really, ask them.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Outriders

The one thing to deal with is that gap right down the centre of the bike. that will stick out like a sore thumb.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue F

Sprue F features your Necron Destroyers and Plasmacyte. These ones aren’t too bad to build when compared with the rest of the Necron Hoard, though there are some parts to be careful of (again, the rounded edges like the legs).

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue F Necron Skorpeth Destroyers, Plasmacyte - Coloured

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Skorpekh Destroyers

Whilst these are easy to cut off the sprue, they are kinda tricky to build. the head an arm twits around the carapace during the fitments and the instructions do not make this clear.

The result is that after several attempts the front of the head didn’t sit flush with the back – Though I can go back and glue this properly later.

Again, this model leaves little room (well, no room) for painting in sub-assemblies without some heavy modification.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Skorpekh Destroyers Head Gap

These guys are so cool, like Darth Maul and The Terminator had a baby

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Skorpekh Destroyers

As I noted before, the larger Necron units are certainly the more favourable of the bunch

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Plasmacyte

This is probably the easiest Necron to build and with only a little clean-up to do

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Plasmacyte

One of the things more noticeable in this picture over the previous ones is that the surfaces of the metal armour aren’t entirely smooth like the space marine armour. it’s battered and dented along the surface.

So when you get a sprue gate like the one above covering a large part of the carapace, sanding it smooth could make the whole surface look off.

You also have the gap to deal with just under whatever that front appendage is.

I read the book! It’s a Monomolecular Proboscis! yep, still no clue.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue G

This is the big one. this sprue has a ton of cool sculpts and two small squads. I’ve tried to keep the colours of each squad below in a similar hue (perhaps too similar). Light Blues are the BladeGuard veterans and the greens are the Eradicators.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Sprue G - Judiciar, Chaplain, Ancient, Bladeguard Veterans, Eradicators

There are some trickier parts on this due to the details and curves on some of the attached parts. I had specific issues with the Ancient but more on this in a mo.

Base on how many characters are on this sprue, I find it very unlikely that these would be available in anything other than the Indomitus set. The Captain and Lieutenant could easily be sold as separate sprues, but this is clearly just meant for a large boxed set. Perhaps a “Start Collecting” set, but that would be away down the line.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Judiciar

I am so happy with the way this sculpt is built, I have been planning a conversion for this guy from the second I saw him. It’s worth noting that this is one of the models when you may need to gap-fill.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Judiciar Mould Lines

Slightly annoyingly the right arm is fixed in place, so for sub-assemblies, this won’t naturally come off.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Judiciar Arm Fixing

The parts are broken down completely as follows (again, edit the head peg for easy removal). The thing I’m most favourable of is that sword arm in general. makes fo easy weapon removal should you want to. And I do.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Judiciar Parts

Check the pic below, see how it’s shiny on the chest and top of the sword?

That’s called Mould release agent and it’s why we wash our models in Warm Soapy Water before painting. we all do that right?

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Judiciar

But that is one imposing model, no I do not like the head, few people do, but again I have plans for this chap.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Primaris Chaplian

The model of Kano from Mortal Kombat Indomitus Primaris Chaplain is another one which cannot easily be broken down into sub-assemblies. the head is attached to the legs then sandwiched between the front and back of the body with an arm moulded to each piece.

I suppose you can remove the head quite easily at this stage and glue in place later. I always find the head’s easier to paint (airbrush) separately.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Chaplain Parts

You can pop off the backpack if you want though?

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Chaplain Sub Assemblies

Another awesome pose and the detail which has gone into these marines is so cool.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Chaplain

Again though we have a halo which makes cleanup of the mould lines annoying and tricky in this area.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – primaris Ancient

Who doesn’t love a good standard-bearer? This is one unit we can directly compare to a model from Dark Imperium. this time clearly more detailed.

Once again you can pop of the head with some easy modifications. The backpack comes off too.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Ancient Sub Assemblies

If you remember I mentioned above that I had some issues with removing this guy from the sprue, check his standard and see if you can see it?

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Ancient

So if you haven’t spotted. I snipped the tip off one of the spikes! oh well, if I want to replace this it’s only another £125!

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Blade Guard veterans

getting straight into this one with Sub Assemblies. for two of them, brill with the pegs alone. you can break this down by removing heads (again after edits), backpacks off arms off and you can even separate the shield.

However with the chap to the left in the pic below. the backpack peg is actually what holds on the front of his torso. but a bit of glue can sort this.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Bladeguard Veterans Sub Assemblies

Cleanup wise – halos again. so it’s hobby knife (not mould line remover) inside and outside of those rings.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Bladeguard Veterans

Another set I really like – these models are just so detailed. With all the cool stuff we’ve had since Dark Imperium brought us the Primaris Marines – it’s so weird to look back now and see how basic those sculpts were.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Eradicators

It’s quite odd fitting these together, they are the strangest build of all the marines. instead of the usual front and back approach. The eradicators all come in two halves.

The rear pin is halved also and it’s the backpack that holds them flush.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Eradicators Body Parts

Thankfully this new Eradicator version of the Gravis armour has a recessed hood so now you can actually alter the head and still fit it afterwards.

Additionally, you can also remove the weapon but the body will need some glue to stay in place. It’s needed anyway to fill that gap between the two halves f the armour.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Eradicators Sub Assemblies

These guys are super popular and I expect this is somewhat to do with the game as I’m not the biggest fan of these models sculpt wise. They are great but when compared to the detail of all the models above, they just don’t stand out as much.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Primaris Eradicators

Nevertheless it’ll be nice to paint some melta’s again.

And that’s the Space Marines done next, onto the final sprue, more Necrons.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review – Sprue H

Once again this is a Necron sprue, so be careful, if you don’t have some fine/sharp sprue cutters (check out our list for the best ones) you can snap finer components.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Review 40K - Sprue H Necron Canoptek Reanimator, Cryptothralls, Plasmancer, Skorpekh Lord - Coloured

Most annoyingly, many of the gates are connected to round – ball joints so these are some of the worse to clean up. a knife will easily cut them flat but it would be hard to get any files in the tight gaps. my advise is to shave them down almost hexagonal, then fold some ultrafine sandpaper to a point in order to round the parts off.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Canoptek Reanimator

Well straight in, in regard to sub-assemblies. you can take the upper two parts of carapace armour off and that’s it. though this is useful to get to the machinery parts below it

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Canoptek Reanimator

This is a super tall tripod model which towers over the rest of the units. Absolutely superbly imposing.

It’s fairly straight forward to clean up too thanks to the larger components of the model.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Cryptothralls

When GW designers ran out of ideas they started looking at everyday modern machinery to design new models. and low, these jet-turbines were repurposed into Necron models

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus 40K - Cryptothralls

In all honesty, though, these aren’t bad and they add some differing interest to the range – I like the Way GW have gone with these and they are easy to put together. Yet again no real sub-assembly options, You can take the sides off but you are taking the arms with them, your call.

Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus – Necron Plasmancer

Thanks to Mortal Realms Magazine, I’ve had just about enough of swirly ghost models, but this proves that pretty much anything is better with Metal!

Despite the delicacy of this model it’s also one of the easier ones to build and clean up, I thank the flat edges for this in the most part. rather simple but a nice model all the same.

Remember above when I said that for inspiration, GW took modern objects and repurposed them into Necrons. Well, in this case, they did it with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson from The Mummy Returns. Which is great because it’s about time someone made up for that terrible animation. it’s not just me, you see it right?

Once again, the size of this guy makes clean up easier, though there are some trickier parts like the gaps in his weapons. I’ve also just noticed w whole mould gate on the top of his left leg. ah well, thankfully this is also one of the easier ones to pull apart again.

At the time of writing (July 25th 2020), you have only 6 days to order this set, and even if you buy now, you are looking at December before you get your hands on it. Whilst there are maybe a few hobby stores that do have stock. Everywhere online you can buy from is taking orders for made to order only.

Nevertheless, if you want it, of course you want it, check out our list of the best places to buy Indomitus online as you can very likely pick it up for around 15%-20% off! (we also have some codes for exclusive discounts in some stores)

The set is incredible, I can’t even start to calculate the value you get in this box, but looking at the Captains and Lieutenant alone, thinking about their individual retail value. Just 5 of these characters level models (of which there are 5 in the Space Marine force alone) and that’s almost the cost of the box!

Update: for the Indomits box Value (compared to all of the 9th edition starter sets). See our comparative guide to the new boxes.

And some of these are better detailed than the retail equivalents we have available.

Whilst these are some of the coolest Necrons I’ve seen in a long time, I simply did not enjoy building those Warriors and if I never need to build another Necron Warrior again, it will be too soon. (ahh crap, I still need to go back and clean up the mould lines)

The rest of the models here are awesome and finally, give some powerful and exciting variety to the range.

This is just an epic set overall and yes it’s in high-demand and hard to get hold of. please don’t pay scalper prices, though if you are after individual models from the set. eBay (at least click our links below to support the site please) is the place to go. Especially now whilst the listings are flooded with these models and the prices are low. A month from now and you may be looking at paying double for some of these character models. Strike now whilst the iron is ….cool?

If you are into 40k, honestly order this set if you can, even if you need to be patient. There will definitely be some kind of replacement boxed set in the future, but consider if you don’t buy one of these, will you regret it. I’m genuinely so happy to just be part of something this special.

Love this set so much.
