FINALLY, the Warlord Titan is coming!
In conjunction with The Horus Heresy Volume 5: Tempst and the re-opening of Warhammer World, Forge World is releasing the biggest model they have ever done.
This composite image was stitched together from the video:
Now let’s grab some size comparison image from EPIC and elsewhere to give you a size comparison of the Warlord to the other Titans:
– Callers to Forgeworld were told that IS a Warlord model in the video.
– Spikeybits readers have said to look for an official debut at the Warhammer World Grand Opening on May 16th-17th.
– BoLS have been given word the price of the model will be unprecedented, and well over $2000, far above the Tau Manta’s £989
I am in for one!
The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest is coming!Forge World released their teaser video for Book Five.As always, watch the skies…..Loken
The Thanatar-Calix class Siege-automata is a potent war machine and a wonder of the Mechanicum’s craft. Combining arcane and secret technologies, it carries a twin-linked mauler bolt cannon alongside a rare solex pattern heavy lascannon, whose beams of coherent light can reach far across a battlefield to lethal effect. The Thanatar-Calix’s most destructive armament though is the graviton ram, a weapon whose origins are lost in the Dark Age of Technology. The ram’s crushing waves of gravitational force can pulverise infantry and vehicles alike, and it can be utterly devastating at both range and close quarters.
The Thanatar frame, designed as a heavy weapons platform, is well armoured and further protected by atomantic shield generators, making it nearly impervious to all but the heaviest of weapons fire. Whilst it is slow to advance, the Thanatar-Calix’s durability allows it to close steadily on its target, moving ever nearer until its formidable weaponry can be brought into range.
The Thanatar-Calix may be taken in any Mechanicum army, including the Taghmata Omnissiah, Legio Cybernetica and Ordo Reductor army lists, in Horus Heresy games. Experimental rules for the Thanatar-Calix can be found HERE.
This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 17th April.
“There is no truth in flesh, only betrayal.
There is no strength in flesh, only weakness.
There is no constancy in flesh, only decay.
There is no certainty in flesh but death.”
From Forge World:
Found on worlds across the Imperium since the days of the Great Crusade, the Primus Redoubt is one of a class of super-heavy emplacements built en-masse to defend the cities, foundries and other vital structures on newly Compliant worlds. Constructed with emplaced weaponry more often found on heavy void craft and battlecruisers, and powered by reactors buried deep beneath its visible structure, the Primus Redoubt is designed to eliminate vehicles at very long range, and has enough destructive force to take down super-heavy vehicles and even Titans. Its substantial walls are further protected by a projected force dome, shielding the redoubt from all but the heaviest of incoming fire and orbital bombardments.
The Realm of Battle Imperial Primus Redoubt consists of a 2′ x 2′ Realm of Battle tile that features a large bunker complex with multiple battlements and a double-barrelled turbo laser destructor turret. It is a fortification that can be taken by any Faction in Warhammer 40,000 and Horus Heresy games. Experimental rules for the Primus Redoubt can be found HERE.
This is a complete multi-part resin kit. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 10th April.
It goes perfectly with the Castellum Stronghold board.
The It costs £125 or $ 186.50.

The Sydonian Dragoon is a marvel of Adeptus Mechanicus engineering, the closest anyone has yet come to violating the immutable laws of thermodynamics. Perpetual motion repurposed for destruction rather than creation, they act as the Skitarii cavalrymen, charging into battle without doubt or hesitation.
Contained in the box is a number of options, customisations and modifications – the model can be armed with either a taser lance or radium jezzail, with holstered versions of each available – a phosphor serpenta can be added to either configuration. The legs can be posed in two different positions, the suspensors can be moved to different angles and the entire miniature is covered with the sensors, monitors and arrays typical of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
With a distinctive two-legged walking tank-shape, the artillery platform known as the Ironstrider Balistarius is a fearsome sight indeed. Gyroscopically balanced, with downlinks providing them with the sum knowledge of their enemies, the deadly accuracy of the Ironstrider Ballistarius would be the stuff of legend, were any survivors ever left to recall it.
Harnessing the energies of forge worlds within their curious weaponry, the Rangers of the Skitarii are implacable and relentless hunter-killers. For them, an engagement is not over until their enemy is destroyed – even if this means stalking them across galaxies and over decades.
This 210mm x 297mm transfer sheet contains highly-detailed transfers depicting the iconography and symbolism of the Adeptus Mechanicus’ devastating army, the Skitarii.
Skitarii Vanguard/Ranger Web Bundle $ 102.25
This bundle contains everything needed to make two Ironstrider Ballistarii and one Sydonian Dragoon – awesome, visually striking bipedal tanks featuring brutally effective long and short range weaponry.

With unparalleled speed and maneuverability, the Xiphon pattern Interceptor saw increasing service in the Legiones Astartes during the dark days of the Horus Heresy. Based on ancient designs, the void and atmospheric craft carried heavy armaments into battle, allowing it to destroy both air and ground targets with apparent ease. Its pair of twin-linked lascannon and Xiphon rotary missile launcher combined with the Interceptor’s speed and agility to make it a deadly opponent from which the enemies of Mankind could not hide.
The Xiphon Pattern Interceptor is a flyer that is available to all Legiones Astartes armies in Horus Heresy games. Experimental rules for this unit can be found HERE. Additional experimental rules for using this vehicle in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.
This is a complete multi-part resin kit which includes a plastic canopy and flying stand. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 3rd April.
It clocks in at £80 or $118. It is available on the Forge World website. Not cheap, but worth buying a few to have some air power!
From Forge World:
Armillus Dynat is an expert duellist and warrior in his own right. Wielding a thunder hammer and power sword in unison and carrying uncommon wargear such as venom spheres and phosphex bombs, he is an opponent to be reckoned with.

The rules for using Armillus Dynat in games set during the Horus Heresy can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Three – Extermination. This kit is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 3rd April.
Dynat costs £31 or $ 46 and is available on the Forge World website.
The Mechanicum Scyllax Guardian-automata Covenant consists of four Scyllax Guardian-automata, each armed with a Scyllax bolter and various interchangeable claws and mechadendrites forming a mechadendrite combat array.

This is a complete multi-part resin kit. It is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 27th March.

“Containing one set of our revolutionary channel foam, the Citadel Crusade Figure Case has been specially designed to fit almost any model that we make, any shape and size, quickly and easily without the chore of cutting and shaping to fit.
Packing and unpacking the case is absurdly quick and easy; any model, however pointy, placed anywhere within the channels will be protected as well as if you’d spent countless hours hacking away at a custom fit. You’ll free up more time to concentrate on games, painting or just showing off your miniatures collection. The channel foam is as efficient a use of space as possible, allowing you to store more models more safely than any other case.”
The Coming of the Emperor
The Great Crusade
The Horus Heresy
After the invasion of Terra, the Night Lords did not splinter and flee like the rest of the Traitor Legions. Instead, they continued to attack the Imperium, however, their tactics seemed to change, betraying a self-destructive desperation. The Night Haunter himself was gradually losing his sanity and sense of purpose that had earned the respect of his Legion, and in his last days would frequently erupt into fits of violence, incoherency, and sadism. Many, such as Sevatar, became disheartened at what their Primarch had become. The Emperor himself, wishing to disband the Night Lords forever, dispatched half the Callidus Temple of assassins to terminate the renegade Primarch.
The Rapier weapons platform is used extensively by the Solar Auxilia. Its hard-wearing armoured track system and high load capacity make it ideal for carrying powerful weapons that are too heavy for an auxiliary to carry into battle. The long-range firepower of the quad mortar is used to suppress enemy troops and even crack through their armoured bunkers.
It costs £30 or $ 44.
SOLAR AUXILIA RAPIER QUAD MORTAR
The Solar Auxilia continue to look amazing.

Armillus Dynat of the Alpha Legion is coming!And he looks pretty sweet. This was revealed on today’s Forge World Bulletin. Other photos from the Horus Heresy Weekender: And his rules:Loken
A reader posted this…
Confirmed that HH was coming to regular GW stores.
A starter box set for 2 players with ‘generic’, non-Legion specific Heresy-era units is coming in May. Wasn’t specific on plans beyond that, apart from that FW will take care of Legion-specific upgrade packs, unique units and any other stuff that GW doesn’t want to run in plastic.
Apparently the demand for HH stuff has been so intense GW is centralizing the range.
Didn’t mention anything about FW in stores though
The rumors point to Horus Heresy Plastics coming your way!
With the Ogryns’ hands and forearms replaced by a brutal collection of mechanisms known as Charonite claws, which amplify their already fearsome strength, Ogryn Charonite squads can rip through armour plating with ease, devastating their foes in the brutal confines of boarding actions. It is little wonder then that as the wars of the Horus Heresy became ever more ferocious, Loyalist Solar Auxilia commanders increasingly turned to the creation of Charonites, particularly when facing Traitor Legiones Astartes and the forces of the Dark Mechanicum.
This is a complete resin kit which includes enough components to make three Ogryn Charonite models. The rules for using Ogryn Charonite Squads in Solar Auxilia armies can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.
These models are available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 13th March.
More GW changes that benefit the Heresy!
Thanks to Larry at BoLS for this.
Here are a set of datapoints that we have been watching the past few weeks. See if you can make out the pattern:
Previous rumors/news from the last month:
1) Horus Heresy plastic boxed is rumors to coming in Q2
2) Horus Heresy standalone kits to support it are said to coming in the wake of the boxed set.
3) Hobbit/LotR is said to be headed back to direct only for the entire range.
4) Forgeworld is rumored to be integrated into the GW online store and retail in the near future.
5) End Times Archaon is wrapping up the End Times series till 9th Edition hits later this year (summer).
The Latest Puzzle Piece…
1) Remove Hobbit/LotR entirely.
2) Reduce the WFB rack frontage.
3) 2 new product sections to be adjacent to 40K will be replacing them, to be rolled out over the next two months.
You put two and two together…
While exact dates are uncertain, it’s looking like the first half of 2015 may give us a revamped GW retail channel that could put an new foot forward to the world – redefining what GW is and offers.
That product line could end up with looking like this:
– Warhammer 40,000 (with select Forgeworld) – as the primary product line GW presents to the public.
– Warhammer 30k (ties into select Forgeworld) – secondary product line
– Warhammer Fantasy – secondary product line
– Hobby Materials
– Black Library
First of all, THANK GOD they are losing The Hobbit / LOTR. What a colossal waste of space. NO ONE plays that game.
Second of all, this is all good news for us Horus Heresy players.
I still would rather buy it all from a FLGS rather than GW. Support the little guys who GW is constantly marginalizing.
This will be good for all of us Heresy gamers!
The Word Bearers Mhara Gal Tainted Dreadnought is a fearsome opponent in battle. Wielding a warpfire plasma cannon and tainted power claw, it is formidable both at range and in close combat, its blows slicing through armour and energy fields alike. Its warp-twisted reactor and the daemonic powers gifted to it by dark forces make it all the more deadly, even breaking the bonds of reality around the Mhara Gal to allow it to walk through obstacles as if they were not there at all.
This new addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series is a complete multi-part resin kit and is packaged in a black presentation box. Experimental rules for using the Word Bearers Mhara Gal Tainted Dreadnought in games set during the Horus Heresy can be found HERE.
This kit is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 6th March.
It’s available here for £52 or $80.
I hate Word Bearers. And its ugly!
It is available here.
I already have my copy from The Horus Heresy Weekender.
From Forge World:
The Solar Auxilia Stormhammer Super-heavy Assault Tank features nine independently firing weapon systems: a turret-mounted Stormhammer cannon with co-axial multi-laser, a hull-mounted dual battlecannon, a hull-mounted lascannon and six sponson-mounted multi-lasers arranged in two broadsides of three weapons. Each of the sponson-mounted multi-lasers have the option to be upgraded to heavy flamers, heavy bolters or lascannon – all of which are included in the kit.
This is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit. The rules for using the Solar Auxilia Stormhammer in games set during the Horus Heresy can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.
This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 27th February.
It costs £150 or $231. Yikes! Buy it here.
But my Solar Auxilia need one…..
Please take this information with a huge wad of salt. I was really tempted not to post this at all, because a lot of the time rumours are just so wrong its laughable.I was sent this information over several e-mails and this is the best I can do to put the releases into some chronological order. It could be very wrong.
Here’s some bits of info:
- There’s mark 9 power armored marines on the way.
- Sister of battle are shortly after summer, just after WFB 9th ed.
- Horus Heresy is about to become very big, with Games Workshop building on the success of Forge Worlds game. This includes new plastic kits for Warhammer 30,000.
Current release schedule to my knowledge looks some thing like this:
- Harlequins.- Archaon End times – Bloodthirster and Khorne Chaos Warrior kits.- Khorne Chaos space marine supplement.- Adeptus Mechanicus.
- 30K box set during the “red week” in May – This is a period of time staff members cannot take time off from the shops.
- Some follow up releases to support the new rules set for 30k.
- Then WFB 9th rules.
- Horus Heresy releases
- Mark 9 Power armoured marines.
- WFB Releases for the Empire and Chaos – This includes the starter kit for WFB 9th ed.
- Sister of Battle (Actually a codex: Ecclesiarchy, but not called that).
This is by my own admission just guess work based on what I have been e-mailed. I don’t know if the order is correct or not. Or even if it is complete crap. I just thought it would be nice to share. This is an experiment, I don’t normally post anything without visible proof.
Now tie this into the previous set of rumors from Harry:
