First Strike - A Warhammer 40,000 Starter Set


First Strike is the ideal first purchase to those new to the Warhammer 40,000 hobby – an exciting fusion of collecting, painting and playing with highly detailed Citadel miniatures. The box is packed with everything needed to begin your hobby journey – 2 sets of miniatures to battle with, and a double-sided gaming mat, a scenery piece, a book of rules and all the extras you need to play:

The Miniatures

15 easy to build push-fit (no glue required!) miniatures in blue and green colored plastic, representing the heroic Ultramarines and putrescent Death Guard:


  • 3 Primaris Intercessors
  • 3 Primaris Reivers

    Death Guard

  • 3 Plague Marines
  • 6 Poxwalkers

    Gaming Content

    Everything you need to learn to play with your new miniatures is included in the box:

  • a 24-page booklet containing the core rules for playing Warhammer 40,000, with each phase of the game explained in a clear, easy to follow manner from the initial setup to one side’s victory;
  • a 56-page book that guides you through the background, history and current state of the Warhammer 40,000 galaxy, with introductions to the Primaris Space Marines and Death Guard, as well as 9 other armies. It features step-by-step guides to painting your miniatures, with guides to the paints and brushes you need, along with a showcase of beautifully-painted miniatures to inspire your hobby journey. It also includes explanations of the different ways to play Warhammer 40,000, along with training missions that gradually introduce the core concepts to the total beginner;
  • a 2’ x 2’ double-sided gaming mat – one side is specially designed with icons showing you where to place miniatures in order to play the training missions, and the other has no markings, so you can play your own games.

    Each side is printed in full color with an evocative design of a ruined Imperial city;

  • a scenery piece! The inside tray of the box is designed to look like a set of armored containers, meaning it can be placed on your mat as a piece of scenery for your miniatures to battle over;
  • datasheets for the miniatures in the box – these are handy cards with the information on movement and weapons for each model printed on, meaning less flipping through books for information and more actual gaming;
  • 6 6-sided dice, and a 6” translucent measuring ruler, each vitally important for games;
  • a decal sheet for your Ultramarines, featuring army and troop iconography;
  • 9 32mm and 6 40mm round plastic bases for your miniatures to stand upon.

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and assembly may be required.
