Games Workshop revealed new bundles of Warhammer 40k Grey Knights, Tyranids, and Necrons models in the form of three new Boarding Patrol bundles on Tuesday. The boxes are intended to jump-start armies for the Boarding Action play mode, according to a post on the Warhammer Community website.
The Boarding Action game mode focuses on small infantry forces fighting in the tight confines of space hulks, which is at the centre of the current Warhammer 40k narrative. Rules and missions for Boarding Action games can be found in the Arks of Omen supplement books.
GW hasn’t announced the price of these bundles yet, but we can expect them to be similar to the Space Marine Boarding Patrol. That contained models with an RRP of $163 / £101.50 and retailed at $110 / £65.
The WarCom article advises caution when you build your models – some of the kits can be built as more than one type of unit, not all of which are usable in Boarding Actions (though they’re all usable in regular games of Warhammer 40k).

The Boarding Patrol bundles are limited run products. If there isn’t one for your Warhammer 40k faction yet, or you missed your chance – the Chaos Space Marines Boarding Patrol is out of stock on the GW website – check our guide to the regular 40k Combat Patrol boxes to see if there’s a different bundle available for your army. They’re a little more pricy, but come with more goodies too.
