Forge World Releases Paints

Posted on May 22nd, 2015 under , . Posted by

Forge World has released its own line of paints.

These are specially formulated for airbrushing, so they should be just what many hobbyists want.

From Forge World:

Forge World Airbrush Paints are specially formulated acrylic paints designed to give great results with an airbrush, whilst retaining the perfect consistency for applying with a paint brush. This range of 26 paints includes flat colours and metallics, as well as clear colours which can be combined to create effects such as fades, blends, washes and for changing the shades and tones of other colours.

Forge World Airbrush Paints are ideally suited for using with our Horus Heresy model range, as well as with all other Forge World and Citadel models and scenery.

Forge World Solution is ideal for thinning paints and also for cleaning your airbrush, often the most important and overlooked part of maintaining this essential piece of hobby equipment. It is designed to work with Forge World’s Airbrush Paint range.

Forge World Clear Medium is designed to be combined with Forge World’s Airbrush Paints to improve their flow and provide a great aid to blending. It can also be used to create translucent effects and make washes and glazes when mixed with any of the paints from the Forge World and Citadel paint ranges.

These great airbrush paints have been created to work alongside the full range of Citadel paints to make your models look amazing!

The complete set is £97.50 or $151.
If anyone wants to tell us how they work, we would love to know!

Horus Heresy Book 5: Tempest Released!

Posted on May 18th, 2015 under . Posted by

The Horus Heresy Book 5 is out!

From Forge World:

Previously isolated from the brutal devastation of the Horus Heresy as it tore across the Imperium, the Ultramarines were drawn into Mankind’s civil war when betrayal reached Ultramar. The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest tells of the Word Bearers’ treacherous attack on the Ultramarines at the mustering world of Calth. This cataclysmic battle engulfed the entire system, pitching not only the Legions against each other, but also the massed ranks of the Imperial Army militia and the towering god-machines of the Legio Titanicus.

Lavishly illustrated in full colour, this leather bound 270 page book contains an extensive history of the Ultramarines, unit profiles and an army list as well as rules for the Primarch of the XIIIth Legion, Roboute Guilliman, so he can lead your army to war along with the elite of his Legion. To represent their part in the conflict, the rules for the Word Bearers Legion have been updated and new units and characters provided for them. The new Imperialis Militia & Cults army list allows you to field the massed troops and war machines of a range of armies raised on a myriad of worlds, including planetary defence forces and twisted Warp cults, with rules to represent your army’s unique background and fighting style.

Additional units for Legiones Astartes and Mechanicum armies are presented within Tempest, such as the Sokar Pattern Stormbird, the Domitar Class Battle-automata and rules for using the gargantuan Mars Warlord Battle Titan.

Bringing this wealth of source material and game rules together, the Betrayal at Calth campaign lets you refight the apocalyptic battles between the Traitors and the Loyalists, providing missions, deployment maps and Age of Darkness expansion rules so you can either fight for Calth, or bring about its utter destruction.

The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 22nd May.

And it is all Salamanders:

From Forge World:

Vulkan lies in state beneath the Fortress of Hera, and yet many of his sons still refuse to believe that he is truly dead. After a seemingly miraculous rescue by the Ultramarines, Artellus Numeon, once captain of the Pyre Guard, urges the other Salamanders on Macragge to leave Imperium Secundus and return their primarch’s body to the home world of Nocturne – there to be reborn in the flames of Mount Deathfire. But Numeon grapples endlessly with his doubts and fears for the future of the Legion, while their foes seek to carve out new destinies of their own…

Invictarii armour is finely detailed, artificer-wrought power armour bestowed upon warriors of the Ultramarines Legion in honour of the deeds they have accomplished in service to the Imperium. It is often worn by those who have served in the elite echelon of warriors known as the Invictarus Suzerains before being assigned command.

This upgrade set comprises ten resin Ultramarines Invictarii torsos and ten resin Ultramarines Invictarii heads, including a Sergeant’s helm and one unhelmeted head, featuring Ultramarines Legion iconography.

This is a multi-part resin upgrade kit. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Monday 18th May 

£24 or $37


From Forge World:

Across the thousands of Forge Worlds producing battle plate for the Legiones Astartes, variations from the standard template have been introduced in deference to local customs, views on artifice and the requirements of the Legion being supplied.

Praetorian armour is a variant of Mk IV ‘Maximus’ pattern battle plate, produced in the factories of Ultramar for the most recently raised chapters of the Ultramarines.

This upgrade set comprises ten resin Mk IV Praetorian Armour torsos and ten resin Mk IV Praetorian Armour heads, including a Sergeant’s helm and one unhelmeted head, featuring Ultramarines Legion iconography.

This is a multi-part resin upgrade kit. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Monday 18th May

£24 or $37

Full details on the icons on this sheet can be found HERE

£16 or $25 makes this one VERY expensive transfer sheet!

Battlefleet Gothic Armada Video Released

Posted on May 8th, 2015 under , . Posted by


There’s a BFG video game coming!

Here’s the press release:

via Focus Home Interactive


Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the famous tabletop game from Games Workshop adapted into a Real-Time-Strategy video game by Tindalos Interactive, unveils today its first video teaser.

The game stages the mighty armada of the Imperial Navy’s Battlefleet Gothic against the insidious and galaxy-threatening Chaos Black Crusade of Abaddon the Despoiler in dark, deadly and intense space battles from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This first video teaser is a prelude to intense space combat in command of huge battle cruisers – true metal behemoths – several kilometers long and armed to the teeth.

Developed on Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is an RTS in which the player takes command of one of these battlefleets composed of the most powerful spaceships from the Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces, in a no-quarter given struggle for the control of the Gothic sector of space.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player’s fleet, both during and between battles. From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, etc… each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle. From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ships for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.

We will unveil the game to the gaming press in more detail very soon; discover now the very first screenshots of the game, captured from a very early development version of the game.

I love BFg and have way too much stuff.  A video game?  I am too busy with Battlefield 4!  But you guys try it and report back!

Blade of the Traitor Released

Posted on May 4th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Another Horus Heresy Anthology has been released.


This one puts together five short stories in one edition. 

From The Black Library: 

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…

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.

Contains the stories Daemonology by Chris Wraight, Black Oculus by John French, Chirurgeon by Nick Kyme, Twisted by Guy Haley and Wolf Mother by Graham McNeill.

You can buy it on The Black Library Website.

I really wish they had an index of everything so people could know where they kind find everything  I started buying the individual shorts as eBooks but have stopped as they are obviously repackaging everything.
