Forgeworld Releases Leviathan Siege Dreanought

Posted on November 15th, 2015 under , . Posted by

The Siege Dread is here!

And my, it is a beast!

Rules available here:  

From Forgeworld:

Created in limited numbers in the latter days of the Great Crusade, the Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought was developed in secret on Terra, away from the pervasive oculars of the Mechanicum. Its massive frame incorporates hybridised technologies, some dating back into the dim past of humanity. Towering over later Imperial walker patterns, this heavily armoured dreadnought is savagely powerful.

This Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought is equipped with a Siege Claw and Siege Drill, powerful close combat weapons that excel at tearing through buildings, vehicles and flesh alike.

The Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought is a multi-part resin kit. It includes optional torso mounted heavy flamers and volkite calivers, an optional Phosphex discharger and an 80mm round base.

With Siege Claw and Siege Drill:

With Storm Canon and Grav Flux Bombard:

Leviathan with weapons £72 ($110)

Leviathan Body £46 ($70)

Weapons £13 each ($20)

Everyone needs one!


Betrayal at Calth Books Released

Posted on November 11th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Black Library has released two Betrayal at Calth novels.

There are two separate novels.  One from each sides perspective.

The Honored

In the immediate aftermath of the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth, survivors from both sides were driven into the subterranean arcology shelters by the tortured Veridian star. While their primarch Roboute Guilliman had planned for many seemingly unthinkable eventualities, the Ultramarines now face a new war in the underworld – could Steloc Aethon, renowned captain of ‘the Honoured 19th’ Company, be the one to lead them to ultimate victory over the traitors? Perhaps, if he can master his own bitter desire for vengeance…
The Unburdened
The Word Bearers side of the events from ‘The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth’ sees Dark Apostle Kurtha Sedd seeking revenge on an old friend. But the star of the show is the insane Contemptor Dreadnought Sor Gharax, whose point of view sections will give you a whole new perspective on being trapped inside a walking tank for eternity.

Besides the two individual novels, the Black Library released a special edition of 2,000.

The complete story of the battle between the Honoured and the Unburdened beneath the surface of Calth. Two old allies, now bitter foes, clash in the darkness, and only one will survive…
It’s both sides of the story in one gorgeous box set. Two interlinking stories set in the caverns beneath Calth see the Ultramarines and Word Bearers battle to the death. And it might just be everybody’s death, because there’s something else in the darkness waiting to be unleashed from beyond the veil…

I ordered all of them!

Details coming in hot!

Betrayal at Calth Product Pricing & Availability

From Warseer’s 75hastings69 10-30-2015

“Would appear that it is indeed 95GBP not 90 as I was originally told.  As for the “Limited” nature of this product, if you look back at my original post from February I do believe I said it would be available for a certain period of time (I think it was 6 months IIRC) before being replaced by the main 30k range, at which point the components of this box will be available separately as part of that range….. as well as other kits. I do not believe I said it would be produced in Limited numbers/quantity. Of course I’ve been wrong before, but that’s what I was told at the beginning of the year.”

So the $ 150 price seems right on!

I want 4 sets


Forge World Releases Solar Auxilia Storm Section with Axes & Legion Transfers

Posted on October 30th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Forge World releases Veletaris Storm section with axes!

Solar Auxilia Velataris Storm Section with Power Axes £41

From Forge World:

Usually forming part of the Solar Auxilia’s Infantry Tercios, Veletaris Storm Sections also serve as the Household Retinue of commanders and Lord Marshals. When doing so they often bear ceremonial power axes which, whilst finely wrought, are suitably deadly in battle. The elite of the Solar Auxilia, who are themselves the best of the Imperial Army, they are considered second only to the Space Marines of the Legiones Astartes in combat.

Consisting of 10 models, this unit is equipped with power axes and encased in reinforced void armour.

The Veletaris Storm Section with Power Axes is a complete multi-part resin kit that makes ten models. It includes ten 25mm round bases.

Also released:
Alpha Legion

Imperial Fists

Plastic Terminator Sprue pics!

We get a Contemptor Dread and Cataphracti Termies in the new Horus Heresy Boxed Set!

From Spikey Bits:

So right off the bat, note the 2014 copyright on the sprues.  GW have been planning on rolling out 30K for a long while. Also let’s be brutally honest here.  There is NO WAY NO HOW Games Workshop would invest the hard cash to make plastic Cataphractii Terminators and a Contemptor Dread on plastic sprues just to promote a boxed boardgame. They have bigger plans for this range.
Onto the models.  The Cataphractii have ball and socket waists, and I think the arms attach flush with the torso, but can be rotated as desired snugly under the barrel shoulderpads before being glued in place. That should provide good posing options for hobbyists. There are over 20 arms for the 5 models, so there are tons of build options including lightning claws, heavy flamer, powersword, powerfists and chainfists in addition to the combi-bolters. Most importantly we get all the shoulder and groin pteruges we expect from our Cataphractii.
The Contemptor is a great deal with solid weapon options.  It gives you out of the box options for CCW/AC, CCW/MM, and even AC/MM builds with some simple conversion work.  Better yet, swap weapons with a friend for the AC/AC, MM/MM, CCW/CCW loadouts. You won’t get the full “action figure” posing options the resin Forgeworld Contemptor gets, but there has to an up-sell option after all.

Thanks to Rob at Spikey Bits for all his great work!

More Horus Heresy Marines photos!

Thanks to Spikey Bits for these!

 Decal sheet with Ultramarines and Word Bearer
OK, you get 30 of these guys – that’s a ton. These look like fully detailed multipose models, not starter box quick assembly dudes.  I think that is more fuel for the theory that GW has big plans for these kits outside of this boxed game. I see all the little gubbins like grenades, knives and such.  So far I’ve spotted: retro missile launcher, heavy bolter, plasma gun, meltagun, plasma pistol, powerfist, chainsword and a boatload of bolters.
The officer sprue is very nice and while we saw it earlier this summer, it looks spectacular here in full detail.  The 4-winged staff combined with the decal sheet leads me to believe that one of those may be a Chaplain (or perhaps a Dark Apostle in the case of the Word Bearers).  All those script blocks on the decal sheet will be wonderful to cut up for use all over a Word Bearers army.
Rob at Spikey Bits has done great work, THANKS!


GW Horus Heresy Plastic Details Emerge

Posted on October 28th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Details are emerging on Facebook of the Horus Heresy Game.

From Lords of War on Facebook

“I guess anyone can email in as an “anonymous source” and be completely wrong about stuff. Here is the low down:
It is a Boxed game with tiles. (Yes it’s just a box game)
– NO F**** XENOS! This is about the galactic civil war of man. That means no bull*** Eldar, Tau, Orks, Necrons, etc. If you hear anyone say there will be rules for Xenos, they are lying to you and they’re a major bull*** artist. This isn’t 40k, this is 30k and we don’t give a s*** what color your Eldar dress is.

THIS IS NOT A LIMITED RELEASE – this is a boxed game and the models maybe used for Forge World’s Age of Darkness. If you don’t own their books you are missing out.

– Follow up to the last point, BUY THE FORGE WORLD BOOKS THEY ARE OUTSTANDING AND WORTH EVERY DIME OR PENCE (for my English friends).

– The sales of the box will dictate what will be released next, how it will be released and when it will be released. ONCE AGAIN, IF THESE SITES SAY THEY KNOW WHAT IS COMING OUT, THEY’RE LYING.
Contents of the Box:
30x Tactical marines MK IV ONLY!
5x Cataphractii Terminators
1x Contemptor with Lascannon and CCW (FW Contemptor arms are interchangeable with the new plastics)
1x Praetor
1x Chaplain
The game box will be the only way to get the models for the initial release. The more you buy the faster the minis will come out in squad form.”

So in summary, there are 38 miniatures for $150 USD based on multiple sources.  Pics show Mk. IV marines, Cataphractii Terminators and a Contemptor with Kheres Assault cannon and multi-melta. 

Retail will be $150 and thus it will be a considerable deal compared to Forge World.

Good hunting!

Raven Guard Mor Deythan Strike Squad has steep price!

Posted on October 23rd, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Raven Guard goodness, but rather pricey!

Forge World released the Raven Guard Mor Deythan Strike Squad.  But at £50 ($76.75 US) this is one of the more expensive 5 man units ever to come out of Forge World and fans are not happy.  Discussion on the Horus Heresy Forum here.

Now I am not one to complain about Forge World prices, so I will get two squads for my Raven Guard, but still pricey!

From Forge World:

Having fought at their Primarch’s side from the days before the coming of the Emperor, the Mor Deythan are among the most loyal and experienced of veterans. Through the endless procession of death they have overseen, the Mor Daythan have perfected hard won skills that surpass those of most Space Marines.

Masters of stealth, attacking from the shadows with almost preternatural skill, the Mor Deythan Strike Squads are the pre-eminent infiltration and execution units of the Raven Guard. Few who enter their sights survive.

This Mor Deytahn Strike Squad is made up of five models, armoured in modified MkVI ‘Corvus’ battleplate that bears the symbol of their Legion. Each wears a cloak and is equipped with a sniper rifle, holstered bolt pistol and a selection of grenades. The kit also includes an optional un-helmeted head.

This is a complete, multi part resin kit. It includes five 32mm round bases.

More info on the Forge World website:
 And there are also Raven Guard transfers!
 £16 or $25 a sheet.  Available here:

Forge World Releases Mechanicum Cerastus Knight-Atrapos

Posted on October 19th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

More Knight Goodness from Forge World

From Forge World:

Mechanicum Cerastus Knight-Atrapos

One of the rarest and most potent Knights, the Knight-Atrapos is a unique variant type of the Cerastus pattern. Bearing particularly rare and potent weaponry of annihilation, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos was created solely to destroy heretek engines and xenos war machines whose very nature and existence were considered a blasphemy to the Omnissiah.

The machine spirits of the Knight-Atrapos are said to carry with them a cold and all-destroying hunger, and for the scion who bonds with them, madness is a constant risk. But for such storied honour, however dark the outcome, this may be a price worth paying.
The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos carries arcane and devastating weapons into battle; the focussed and deadly Atrapos lascutter, that sees duty as both a ranged and close combat weapon, and the violently destructive, but potentially unstable, graviton singularity cannon. With the speed and shielding of the Cerastus chassis, and the Knight-Atrapos’ Marco-extinction Targeting Protocols, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos is an uncommonly destructive weapon of war.
The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos may be taken as part of a Questoris Knight Crusade army or as a Lords of War choice for a Mechanicum Taghmata army in Horus Heresy games. Alternatively, it may be taken in Codex: Imperial Knights armies or as a Lords of War choice in an army of any faction that is part of the Armies of the Imperium in standard games of Warhammer 40,000.
This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes a 170mm oval base.
The rules are available here
Buy this Knight now and get an exclusive Knight Scion completely FREE!
One Knight Scion will be sent to you with every Cerastus Knight-Atrapos, Cerastus Knight-Lancer, Cerastus Knight-Castigator, Cerastus Knight-Acheron, Questoris Knight Magaera, Questoris Knight Styrix or Chaos Knight you order from This offer ends on Thursday 12th November 2015.

Lord Commander Eidolon Arrives!

Posted on August 15th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

God I hate this guy!

But another amazing sculpt from Forge World.
From Forge World:
Lord Commander Eidolon was the pre-eminent commander of the Emperor’s Children. An exemplar of the Legion, he embodied the perfection sought by the sons of Fulgrim. His arrogance and search for perfection led him to the ministrations of Chief Apothecary Fabius in his quest to ‘improve’ upon the designs of the Emperor of Mankind.

A skilled and aggressive warrior who specialised in striking down his foes with a single blow, Eidolon carried a master crafted thunder-hammer and archaeotech pistol in to battle, and made use of a jump pack to strike with speed and surprise. The surgeries he endured enhanced him with a sonic shrieker grafted into his larynx that produced a howl so destructive it could shatter bone and armour.
But wait!  There’s more…..

Techmarine in Mk IV Armour


Techmarine in Mk III Armour

So lots of good reasons for you to part with your hard earned cash!


30K Plastic Rumors and Sprues!

Posted on July 28th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Horus Heresy Sprues are here!
Very cool and coming in a stand alone game first.

Praetor in Cataphractii plate sporting a Combi Bolter and Chainfist. The other character on the Sprue is a Praetor in mk4 with Power mace and Plasma Pistol.

And now the rumors….

From 75Hastings69 7-27-2015

Regarding Horus Heresy Plastic Boxed Set:
It’s not REALLY a starter set, it’s a standalone game, from which the models will be available from at a later date. The execution force assassin models weren’t snap fit either.

Regarding Horus Heresy & 40K rules in the future:

…I’ll share what I have heard, but this dates back a while as I pay very little interest to GW now.
I heard that 30k HH would be a boxed standalone game (like execution force was) and that the plastics contained within it would go on to form part of a larger 30k range and would be released some time later as individual box sets/clampacks, I was told that rules would be in those boxes, but that some boxes would contain rules for 30k AND 40k (and these boxes have BOTH logos on – yes there is a new 30k logo) so I assume it will be using a different ruleset to 40k (as there would be no point having rules for both systems in boxes if they were both the same). I was also told the plastic assassins would get clampack releases later and be released as part of the main 40k range….. as the box set is pretty much still quite widely available I don’t expect this to be soon, although I never had a timeframe in the first case.
As for your AoS style rule reboot question – I remember being told to expect 40k codexes (codices?) to be a thing of the past within 2 years, and that the rules would be in the box for each model/unit, but there would still be a core ruleset which the in box rules would obviously add to. I’ve not bought any AoS releases (nor do I intend to) so I don’t know if they have rules in the boxes (seems daft as when rules got FAQ’d (lol) or changed they’d need to repack ALL the boxes – seems even dafter that anything would actually bother with rules for AoS!!) or just online? I am going to leap to the conclusion that 40k probably WILL become more simplified like AoS, mainly because GW no longer see themselves as rules/games writers but just model sellers. How much more simplified I wouldn’t hazard a guess at. Whatever they decide to do you can bet it’s in the pipeline already, because myself and Harry were privately discussing the changes to WFB almost 3 years ago – I was told it was being canned and whilst we thought that was not the case and that AoS would be a continuation or refresh of it WFB HAS actually been canned and REPLACED by AoS, so these things are planned well ahead.
FW make huge sales from HH, there was no way that GW weren’t going to want in on the action! I expect FW to still produce the big kits/characters/customising kits but GW will provide the bulk of the models needed to play 30k. We can only hope that GW let FW handle the 30k rules/books and they just make the models for it. But keep in mind I was told that when the 30k RANGE hits the stores (not the standalone box game but the actual range) it will take over the store space that used to be taken up by LotR/Hobbit, so GW may want to keep tight hold of the reigns even though they are no longer committed to producing games?
…Having thought about this I think the unit/model rules for 30k & 40k will be online/WD rather than actually inside the box kits (I may have misinterpreted what my source said).
Also I should point out that as I understand it 40k and 30k will be very different games/rulesets, so it may be that 40k becomes like AoS and 30k is handled by FW (although this is just wishful thinking on the behalf of hobbyists the world over!).
Of course I may be completely wrong…… because that happens a lot 

Forge World New Releases

Posted on July 20th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Perturabo is here!

From Forge World:

Master of the Iron Warriors Legion, the Primarch Perturabo planned warfare with exacting precision, ensuring the most expedient path to victory was taken, no matter the toll on his forces. His cold demeanour and adherence to logic won him few friends among the other sons of the Emperor, though none could deny his strategic prowess.

Renowned as the master of siege breaking, the Lord of Iron was also a skilled combatant. His personal armour, the Logos, incorporated sophisticated technologies and weapon systems, including a teleport homer, cortex controller and a wrist-mounted cannon of Perturabo’s own devising, which had a level of raw destructive firepower far in excess of its class. After Ferrus Manus’ death on Isstvan V, Perturabo also wielded his brother’s hammer, Forgebreaker, brutally adapted for his own use.

Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors, is the latest addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series. His unique armour is incredibly detailed and includes ammo feeds for his wrist-mounted cannon, as well as the markings of his Legion. Two right hands are included in this kit with the options of a clenched fist or the thunder-hammer Forgebreaker. Perturabo is provided with a 40mm gaming base and a 60mm scenic base that depicts the ruined chassis of a Cerastus Knight.

Rules for using Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors, in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Three – Extermination.

This is a multi-part resin kit and is presented in a stylish Horus Heresy Character Series box.

Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors is available for pre-order today for despatch from Friday 17th July.

Order him on the Forge World website for £70 or $ 109.


Called forth by the dark rites of the traitorous Word Bearers Legion, the Ruinstorm unleashed a vast horde of the malevolent denizens of the Warp upon the Imperium. Most deadly amongst them were those that came to be known as the Daemon Princes of the Ruinstorm, and counted amongst their number was the vile, pestilent and ever-hungry Cor’bax Utterblight.

Those who have witnessed this loathsome disciple of Nurgle in action tell of a tidal wave of rot and disease which spills before Cor’bax as he enters the battlefield. Life corrupts at his touch, and any mortals unfortunate enough to survive are snapped up whole within his gaping maw to slowly perish and fuel the gifts of Nurgle Cor’bax will generously bestow upon the next world he attacks.

Cor’bax Utterblight, Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm, is the latest addition to Forge World’s Horus Heresy Character Series. He stands more than twice the height of a man and his body is festooned with tentacles, spikes and the remains of those he has devoured, whilst a bloated tongue protrudes from his tooth-filled maw. A trio of Nurglings are also included for you to position on Cor’bax Utterblight or over his 120mm oval base.

Rules for using Cor’bax Utterblight in Horus Heresy games or standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.

Cor’bax Utterblight, Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm, is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 24th July.

Order him on the Forge World website for £70 or $ 109.


Cruel, self-serving and revelling in the slaughter and destruction of the battlefield, Chaos Knights are the antithesis of their loyal kin of the noble Imperial Houses. Allied to the Ruinous Powers, these Knights Paladin, armed with rapid-fire battle cannon, and Knights Errant, mounted with armour-melting thermal cannon, now bear the blasphemous panoply of their new masters, the vestiges of their previous allegiances having been unceremoniously ripped from their blood-stained carapaces.

These vile engines of destruction will have had many gifts bestowed upon them in return for their devotion to the dark gods. Some Chaos Knights may be refitted with powerful and tainted weaponry, augmenting their already fearsome strength in close combat with foe-reaper chainswords, barbarous corruptions of reaper chainswords adapted to gouge and eviscerate all who get within their reach. Whilst those who have given themselves over fully to one of the Chaos gods receive malevolent powers, granting them unnatural and terrifying abilities that few can match and defend against.

This kit, which stands at over 17cm tall, includes all of the parts needed to build either a Chaos Knight Paladin or Chaos Knight Errant. Its carapace, weapons and armour plates are adorned with the markings displaying their devotion to the powers of Chaos, and the kit also includes a foe-reaper chainsword and desecrated optional heraldic plates.

Rules for using the Chaos Knight in games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.

This is a multi-part resin and plastic kit with multiple options. It includes a 170mm oval base.

The Chaos Knight is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 24th July.

Order him on the Forge World website for £115 or $ 179.

Cybernetica is the Latest Horus Heresy Black Library Release

Posted on July 20th, 2015 under , . Posted by

A new Horus Heresy Limited Edition Novella is coming.

Cybernetica is the latest limited edition to come out and will be available July 24th.

From The Black Library:

The Story

Soon after word reached Terra of Horus’s nascent rebellion, Mars fell. Rogue elements within the Mechanicum priesthood, stirred by the Warmaster’s promises of independence and prosperity, turned against the Imperium and forced the primarch Rogal Dorn to order an impenetrable blockade of the Red Planet. Now it has become clear that the corruption has spread too deep, and that more drastic measures must be taken if the Forge World Principal is to be reclaimed. Calling upon the expertise of those who witnessed the so-called ‘Death of Innocence’ firsthand, Lord Dorn and Malcador the Sigillite consider their final solution – the complete extermination of all life on Mars.

Read it because

The Horus Heresy returns to the Solar System… No, we’re not at that battle quite yet. But what are the lords of Terra going to do about Mars…? Cybernetica delves into some of the darkest secrets of the Mechanicum and shows the lengths to which the Imperium is willing to go – and the rules they are willing to break – to exterminate the traitors.

About this edition

This limited edition will be available to order from Friday the 24th of July. Be amongst the first to secure your copy by setting your reminder or signing up for Comm-Feed. To whet your appetite for the story, download a free wallpaper of the cover art below.

Forge World Releases Kytan Daemon Engine

Posted on July 6th, 2015 under , . Posted by

The Kytan Daemon Engine is here!

From Forge World:

Forged by the most malign Warpsmiths and Dark Magos as an act of their devotion to the supreme lord of blood and battles, Kytan Daemon Engines stride across the battlefields of the 41st Millennium eviscerating all who dare oppose them until their hides of brass and blackened iron are bathed in blood and hung with gore. Their thirst for battle is rarely quenched, and they will continue to slaughter foe after foe until the battlefield is slick with blood and little is left alive.
As tall as a Cerastus Knight, an individual Kytan’s upper torso echoes the design of the feared Lord of Skulls, and its powerful lower limbs give it both height and speed. Armed with a potent Kytan gatling cannon, its true weapon of choice is the Great Cleaver of Khorne, which it wields to deadly effect. When attacked, the Kytan is warded by daemonic rites and the powers of the Warp to resist damage inflicted upon it by those few lucky enough or skilled in the ways of fighting such an abomination to survive its initial assault.
The Kytan Daemon Engine of Khorne is a multi-part resin and plastic kit. It is highly detailed and incredibly posable, standing 20cm tall when built fully upright. This kit includes a 170mm oval base.
Rules for using the Kytan Daemon Engine in games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.

And a nice summary from our friends at BoLS:

The new Kytan Daemon engine of Khorne is way better than it’s tracked counterpart the Lord of Skulls.

First off it’s over 300 points cheaper, with no huge reduction in stats. It’s still a daemon so it gets at 5+ Invulnerable all the time, plus you can use it in a Daemonkin, Chaos Space Marines and Daemon army lists.

Perhaps best of all is new ‘Unstoppable Slaughter’ rule that let’s this might war machine assault enemies it did not shoot at! That a pretty neat rule that I can hardly remember the last time it was seen, perhaps not even this edition at all.
