Forge World Releases New Dreadnought!

Posted on January 24th, 2015 under , . Posted by



deredeo-bnr-sm

Forge World has released a new Space Marine Dread!

From Forge World:

The Deredeo pattern dreadnought is a dedicated heavy support frame, though it shares many core components and systems with the more general assault-based Contemptor class. Initially deployed in limited numbers to each of the Legions due to difficulties in its manufacture, its durability and firepower saw demand for the Deredeo pattern dramatically increase after the outbreak of the Horus Heresy.

One of the primary weapon systems the Deredeo can mount is the twin-linked Anvilus autocannon battery, a fearsome development of the existing autocannon pattern that can engage and destroy armoured targets with a punishing salvo of fire. The carapace of the Deredeo can also mount additional weapons and support systems, including heavy bolters or heavy flamers for close-in defence as well as the advanced Aiolos missile launcher which, with its sophisticated targetting system, can track targets independantly of the primary weapons system and regardless of intervening terrain.

The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought is a multi-part resin kit which includes the sarcophagus-mounted heavy bolters or heavy flamer options and an 80mm plastic base. The Anvilus autocannon battery and Aiolos missile launcher are multi-part resin kits which are sold separately. All are available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday January 30th. The Aiolos missile launcher shown in the painted images is a pre-production model.  Experimental rules using the Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought in games of Warhammer 40,000 and the Horus Heresy can be found here.

Black Library Releases Sedition’s Gate

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



The Black Library has released a very limited edition Horus Heresy anthology.

From The Black Library:

THE STORY
 

Across the galaxy, the war for the future of humanity rests on a knife-edge. While the greatest heroes of the Imperium battle the traitor forces, in the shadows, the power of Chaos is in the ascendance. 

This anthology features five unique stories:

Artefacts
Aboard the Salamander’s flagship, the Primarch Vulkan entrusts his legacy to his legion in the hands of the first Forgefather.


The Harrowing
Through stealth and deceit, the Alpha Legion have boarded an imperial vessel. Now they set out to take the ship, their ruthless and methodical strategy employed to devastating effect.


Allegiance
Arvida of the Thousand Sons find himself welcomed as a brother by the White Scars Legion. But can this orphan of Prospero ever truly be at home amongst the savage warriors of Chogoris?


The Laurel of Defiance
On the world of Astagar, the 90th company of the Ultramarines, take on the might of a Chaos Titan.


Sermon of Exodus
Journeying from across the wastes of Davin, the faithful flock to prove themselves worthy in the eyes of dark gods. A Prequel to The Damnation of Pythos.



The Limited Edition anthology Seditions Gate was first available as an event exclusive, sold solely at Black Library events in 2014. Now that the new year is upon us, the remaining copies are now available to order, exclusively from blacklibrary.com. Of the 2,000 copies printed, only 800 remain. We are expecting these to sell quickly, so order your copy now to avoid disappointment.


You can get Seditions Gate here.

I already got mine!

New Forge World Mechanicum, Alpha Legion, Iron Warriors

Posted on January 17th, 2015 under , . Posted by



From Forge World:

Thallax are heavily augmented cyborg shock-troops created by completely replacing the major organs, nervous system and cerebrum of a human with armoured mechanical systems powered by an internal reactor core. This endows them with strength and fortitude greater even than that of a Space Marine, but at a terrible cost to those forced to endure this process.

Deployed as Thallax Cohorts by their Mechanicum overseers, these cold, calculating killing machines witness the devastation they unleash against human and alien alike as a raging storm of electromagnetic turmoil, blood-heat and seismic percussion. When faced with far more powerful foes, the Thallax Cohort’s standard lightning guns can be replaced with more specialised and volatile weaponry such as the phased plasma-fusil or the arcane irad-cleanser.

Thallax Cohorts may be taken as part of a Mechanicum or Legiones Astartes army in Horus Heresy games. Their rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book 3 – Extermination.

The Thallax Cohort with Phased Plasma-fusil and Thallax Cohort with Irad-cleanser are both complete multi-part resin kits. Each kit includes three models, two armed with lightning guns and one with a phased plasma-fusil or irad-cleanser. These kits are available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 23rd January.

“A single beast must suffer the mastership of many men until ready to shed its last vorpal coils.”

Introit to Runic Mechanics



Also, Forge World has released new Alpha Legion and Iron Legion doors and shoulder pads.


Alpha Legion Rhino Doors, Land Raider Doors, MkIII Shoulder Pads

And for those who missed it, this preview of an upcoming Chaos creature of some kind!

Forge World Releases New Castellax Battle-automata with Darkfire Cannon

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



More Mechanicum goodness from Forge World!

 
Forge World has released another Mechanicum bad ass!  The Machine God is pleased!


Castellax Battle-automata w/ Darkfire Cannon
Three times the height of a man and formidably powerful, the Castellax class Battle-automata is a mainstay of the Legio Cybernetica and many Mechanicum armies. Capable of wielding an array of armaments, in addition to its powerful close combat weapons and boltguns, it can also be equipped with heavier and exotic ranged weaponry.

In battle, the Castellax is animated by an aggressive machine spirit, its armoured endoskeleton making it near impervious during its assault. It is at its most deadly, however, when paired with the arcane and lethal darkfire cannon. Unleashing screaming beams of pure darkness, armour, flesh and stone boil away with their touch, and even the most heavily armoured vehicles can be torn apart by their hellish un-light.

The Mechanicum Castellax Battle-automata with Darkfire Cannon is a complete multi-part resin kit and includes a choice of bolters or flamers as secondary weapons.



  

The Mechanicum Castellax Battle-automata with Darkfire Cannonis £37 or $56.

Forge World Imperial Fists Upgrades

Posted on January 3rd, 2015 under , . Posted by



Imperial Fists get Forge World love!

IMPERIAL FISTS LEGION PHALANX WARDER SQUAD UPGRADE SET

The VIIth Legion’s warships are defended from boarding assaults by the Phalanx Warders, warriors selected from amongst the best of the Imperial Fists Breacher squads. Staunch and immovable, they are the last line of defence when attack threatens and the first into the fray when the Legion boards enemy vessels.

Heavily armoured and carrying slab-like boarding shields, Phalanx Warders are trained to fight from behind their shield wall to deadly effect; its armoured protection and the immense firepower at their command proving a deadly match for any foes who dare to assail them.

The Phalanx Warder Squad upgrade set is a 40 piece resin upgrade kit which includes 7 heads, 5 torsos, 5 boarding shields with arms, 5 power axes, 10 shoulder pads, a nuncio-vox backpack, a Legion vexilla and a breaching charge. This set allows you to upgrade a squad of Space Marines to a Phalanx Warder Squad as part of an Imperial Fists Legion army in Horus Heresy games. Their rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Three – Extermination and Legiones Astartes – Isstvan Campaign Legions.

Completed models shown in some images built using the Legion Mk IV Despoiler Squad, available separately.

This set is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 9th January 2015.

IMPERIAL FISTS LEGION TEMPLAR BRETHREN UPGRADE SET

Templar Brethren are the elite of the VIIth Legion. They are guardians of the Temple of Oaths aboard the Imperial Fists’ great fortress-ship the Phalanx and the Legion’s most highly accomplished warriors. With their superior skill in battle and the finest weapons at their disposal, they are at the spearhead of the Emperor’s Crusade to unify Mankind.

Excelling in close combat, the Templar Brethren wield power swords in battle, whilst their combat shields provide much-needed protection as they fight on the frontline in addition to their ornate artificer armour. Few enemies of Mankind seldom survive the first shattering charge of the Templar Brethren and have little chance of overcoming their defences.

The Templar Brethren Squad upgrade set is a 36 piece resin upgrade kit which includes 6 heads, 5 torsos, 5 combat shields, 5 power swords, 1 Champion’s power sword, 10 shoulder pads, a nuncio-vox backpack, a Legion vexilla, a Solarite power gauntlet and an archaeotech pistol. This set allows you to upgrade a squad of Space Marines to a Templar Brethren Squad as part of an Imperial Fists Legion army in Horus Heresy games. Their rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Three – Extermination and Legiones Astartes – Isstvan Campaign Legions.

Completed models shown built using the Legion Mk III Despoiler Squad, available separately
This set is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 9th January 2015.

 

 
Plus you get Mk II, II and IV shoulder pads.
 

This stuff is truly beautiful.  Makes me want to do the Big Yellow!

There is a new class of dreadnought coming from Forge World.

And it looks insane!  

This yet to be named class of dreadnought appeared today in the Forge World’s weekly bulletin along with a showcase of the existing contemptor class deadnoughts.

The new class of Dreadnought looks like it is bigger than a Contemptor!
