Forge World: New Releases Warlord Titan Parts!

Posted on June 4th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

Forge World released new Warlord TItan parts and a new Web App for customizing the Warlord Titan!

From Forge World

LUCIUS-ALPHA PATTERN WARLORD TITAN HEAD £60

The Titan-wrights of the Forge World of Lucius are hailed across the Imperium as masters of their craft, matched only by the Lords of Mars in the potency of the god-machines wrought within the burning depths of their mighty foundries. The hand of the master-artificers of Lucius can be discerned in the distinctive form of many of their creations, in particular the features of the Lucius-Alpha pattern Warlord Titan head. This notoriously warlike visage was the last sight witnessed by countless foes of Humanity throughout the Great Crusade and is now to be seen on both sides of the galaxy spanning civil war that is the Horus Heresy.

The Lucius-Alpha pattern Warlord Titan Head is designed to fit the Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body. It features a fully detailed interior including a Princeps on command throne and two Moderatii. The kit also includes an additional standing version of the Princeps, and two heraldic shields.

The rules for using the Warlord Battle Titan can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest and the Horus Heresy: Mechanicum – Taghmata Army List. These rules may be used in both games set during the Horus Heresy and in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, in which case the Warlord Battle Titan is a Lords of War choice for Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Space Marines.

This is a multi-part resin kit. It has been made to be used with the Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body and Warlord Titan weapons to create a full Warlord Battle Titan.

WARLORD TITAN ARIOCH POWER CLAW £95

Colossal weapons designed to allow the Warlord Titan both to shatter fortifications as well as engage war machines of their own kind in brutal hand-to-hand combat, Titan power claws are immeasurably strong and durable, able to rend metres-thick steel and granite as a predatory beast rends the flesh of its prey. Many carry additional in-built secondary weapons, such as mega-bolter cannon, to deal with lesser threats such as swarming infantry and fast moving attack craft beyond the Titan’s reach

 

The Warlord Titan Arioch Power Claw is extensively detailed and has been designed to fit the Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body. It includes the option of claws or flat ended fingers, either of which can be used to build the Power Claw as left or right handed. It also includes an optional Vulcan Mega-bolter that can be attached to the back of the power claw.

The rules for using the Warlord Battle Titan can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest and the Horus Heresy: Mechanicum – Taghmata Army List. These rules may be used in both games set during the Horus Heresy and in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, in which case the Warlord Battle Titan is a Lords of War choice for Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Space Marines.

This multi-part resin kit includes components to construct one Warlord Titan Arioch Power Claw. It can be constructed as either the Warlord Titan’s left or right arm.

WARLORD TITAN SUNFURY PATTERN PLASMA ANNIHILATOR £85

A weapon of terrifying and indiscriminate power, the Sunfury Plasma Annihilator is capable of incinerating entire cityscapes and rendering the strongest armour into steaming vapour. Developed from designs intended for the broadside batteries of void warships, plasma annihilators such as the Sunfury are able to be mounted only on the largest of the Imperium’s war machines, such as Battle Titans, as both the reactor-strength required to charge them and the motive power to wield them demand nothing less.

The Warlord Titan Sunfury Plasma Annihilator is extensively detailed and has been designed to fit the Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body. It is a massively destructive weapon, firing multiple barrages of intense, searing energy that will tear through even the toughest armour of your foes.

The rules for using the Warlord Battle Titan can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest and the Horus Heresy: Mechanicum – Taghmata Army List. These rules may be used in both games set during the Horus Heresy and in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, in which case the Warlord Battle Titan is a Lords of War choice for Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Space Marines.

This multi-part resin kit includes components to construct one Sunfury pattern Plasma Annihilator. It can be mounted as either the Warlord Titan’s left or right arm.

And for fun, Forge World also put out a new video showcasing the new Titan Accessories:
These are some amazing new additions to the Warlord Titan Range. The Arioch Power Claw is really impressive for sure! Also, did anyone else notice that the Sunfury Pattern Plasma Annihilator has a magnet in the top of the socket? Yes, that means even Forge World understands how expensive these kits are and that if you’re a Titan Owner you should be magnetizing these kits. But for the rest of us – we’re going to have to settle for playing around with the Warlord Titan Builder and keep the dream alive.

The Arioch Power Claw is the size of a Knight…

 
Its getting harder and harder NOT to buy one!

Forge World releases Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan & Medicae Orderlies

Posted on May 2nd, 2016 under , , . Posted by

A new model in the Character Series has been released.

From Forge World:

Once lauded for his brilliance as a healer and surgeon among the elite of the Imperial world of Agathon, unorthodox and illegal experimentation led to Aevos Jovan’s fall from grace. Presented with the choice of execution or service in the Solar Auxilia, Jovan took to the battlefield as a new theatre for his unmatched skill.

As Surgeon-Primus, Aevos Jovan’s abilities lie far more in preserving life than taking it; his miraculous skill to repair and heal the injuries of those under his care aided by the facilities of his auto-gurney, a self propelled surgical suite providing considerable advantages to those able to master its complex operation under battlefield conditions. That said, when pressed Jovan has been known to wield his Phase Lancet in anger, disintegrating matter within his foe’s body without breaking the skin, each slice severing vital arteries and neurons with Jovan’s formerly fêted precision.

Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan & Medicae Orderlies is part of The Horus Heresy Character Series. This set includes Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan, two Medicae Orderlies and an Auto-Gurney bearing a wounded Auxilia. The Auxilia’s recently amputated leg is also included.

Rules for using Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan in Horus Heresy games are available to be downloaded. This set can also be used to represent an Auxilia Medicae Detachment as depicted in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest

This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes four 25mm round bases. It is presented in a black Horus Heresy Character Series box.
 
As usual, Forge World’s sculpts are stunning.

The future of the Imperium is being shaped by unseen hands…
