The new tainted Dreadnought from the Word Bearers is here!

From Forge World:

First encountered during the Battle of Ithraca amidst the catastrophe on Calth, the twisted form of the Mhara Gal Tainted Dreadnought is terrifying in both its aspect and its unearthly power. The first Mhara Gal is believed to have been created from the barely living remains of a Gal Vorbak Dark Brethren and a battle-shattered Contemptor Dreadnought chassis, both recovered from the blood-soaked ground of Isstvan V. Fused together by unholy practices, they were then corrupted by a warp-borne power, giving birth to a new monstrosity – a living engine of war and hatred.

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!  :-)


Tallarn: Ironclad Released

Posted on February 21st, 2015 under , . Posted by

Tallarn Ironclad is out in a limited edition.

From The Black Library:

Tallarn: Ironclad is presented as a luxurious hardback in a glossy wrap-around jacket. The cover is beautifully embossed with Slaaneshi daemonettes. Included in the pages are unique before-and-after schematics of the doomed world of Tallarn. This edition is signed by the author John French and is individually numbered from a print run of 3,000. It’s a must-have for any Horus Heresy fan.
This is the biggest armoured conflict in galactic history – there’s a million tanks! However, no one can leave the safety of their claustrophobic war machines for fear of melting into a toxic puddle. While this story supplies plenty of action, what brings the entire might of the Iron Warriors to battle is much more intriguing.

It is available here.

I already have my copy from The Horus Heresy Weekender.


Forge World Releases Solar Auxilia Stormhammer

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

The Stormhammer is finally here!

And man is this thing a beast!

From Forge World:

The Stormhammer is the pre-eminent super-heavy assault tank of the Solar Auxilia. Equipped with a fearsome array of weapons with overlapping arcs of fire, it is often found in the vanguard of the Imperium’s invasion and pacification forces and is able, and often expected, to plunge into the heart of an enemy force and obliterate multiple units in short order.

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…..


Horus Heresy Coming to Plastic?

Posted on February 17th, 2015 under . Posted by


Will there be plastic Horus Heresy Miniatures?

via Tzen at Bolter & Chainsword
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:

via Harry and others at Warseer 2-16-2015

The implication is we’re going to see a GW-produced plastic Horus Heresy starter box/boxed game.

So, seems to be something afoot.  And with GW running out of armies to release new codexes for, and desperate to grow their revenue, plastic Sisters are a no-brainer after Harlequins.  And a new Horus Heresy plastics release makes total sense.  GW released all the 40K Codexes so fast, that they simply can’t go bsck snd start redoing all of them.  So they need something to release.  After all, GW’s new strategy is to release new books and models rapidly to make up for lower sales growth and new customer acquisition.  SO I am thinking these rumors are pretty solid, even if good guesses.

Black Library Releases "Blades of the Traitor"

Posted on February 10th, 2015 under , . Posted by

The Black has released a new anthology, Blades of the Traitor.

From The Black Library:

The Story

Across the war-torn galaxy, those sworn to Horus’s cause shake the Imperium to its very foundations. Before the traitors’ relentless onslaught, the wisdom of ages past is lost and forgotten, daemons hide amongst the common people and the warp’s corrupting influence can be seen in almost every facet of the Heresy. For those who would become champions of the new order, there can surely be no redemption – only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods…

Read it because

Blades of the Traitor brings you five epic, action-packed tales that drive the Horus Heresy forward. Discover what the Warmaster’s allies are up to as they prepare to march on Terra: sacrifices in the bowels of Molech’s Enlightenment, Legion Navigators delving through the very Eye of Terror and horrific experiments in dark, secret labs.

You can buy the book here.

You can buy the eBook collection here.  

In this collection:

Daemonology by Chris Wraight
Black Oculus by John French
Chirurgeon by Nick Kyme
Twisted by Guy Haley
Wolf Mother by Graham McNeill

I already got the book at the Horus Heresy Weekender and  bought the eBooks as that is the way I read everything now.


Forge World Re-releases Siege of Vraks

Posted on February 10th, 2015 under . Posted by

Forge World has Re-Released the Siege of Vraks, but this time in one volume.
The new book takes into account 7th edition and having seen it at the Horus Heresy Weekender, I can tell you it is pretty slick.

From Forge World:

For eighteen years, the armoury world of Vraks has been subjected to a savage and bitter war, the armies of the Imperium and forces of Chaos ceaselessly fighting each other for control of this once loyal stronghold of the Imperium. Even with the combined might of five Space Marine Chapters, twenty-two Imperial Titans and the near-unending ranks of men and war machines of the Death Korps of Krieg, the outcome is far from certain, for the disciples of Chaos are without number, their vast hordes not only bolstered by vile Daemon Engines from the Warp, but also by an ever-increasing number of warbands of the fearsome Chaos Space Marines.

Imperial Armour – The Siege of Vraks gathers together and presents afresh the story of this monumental conflict, previously published in Imperial Armour Volumes Five, Six and Seven. As well as extensive background information on the siege and the forces engaged in it, such as the Red Scorpions Space Marines Chapter, the Grey Knights and the World Eaters Chaos Space Marines, this 288-page, full colour hardback book contains updated rules and army lists for the Death Korps of Krieg and the Renegades of Vraks. Also included are the heraldry and iconography of the forces deployed to Vraks and rules for the lords and heroes of each faction, including Inquisitor-Lord Hector Rex and the vile Mamon, Daemon Prince of Nurgle.

In order to use this book, you will need the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. This book is available to pre-order today for delivery from Friday 13th February.

You can get yours on the Forge World website.  £57 or $87.
