Forge World Release Corax!

Posted on January 9th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

Corax is here!

The Raven Lord has finally been released by Forge World and he is rocking!

From Forge World:
The master of stealth and rapid strikes, Corvus Corax wields the XII Legion with precision and guile. The Primarch of the Raven Guard presents a striking countenance with his alabaster skin and stark, black eyes. His sable armour is edged with fine, golden filigree and upon his back is mounted a jet pack formed into a pair of articulated pinions that he wields as a murderous, bloody-edged cutting weapon.

Like most of the Primarchs, Corax is blessed of an extensive armoury of artificer-wrought weapons but those he most often bears to war are a pair of metre-long lightning claws and a coiled whip at his belt. Though few even amongst his sons know of it, Corax is blessed with the ability to pass unnoticed should he will it, this preternatural ability allowing him to slip from the perception of his enemies even when standing in plain view.

Corvus Corax, Primarch of the Raven Guard is part of The Horus Heresy Character Series. His panoply of weapons includes an archaeotech pistol and a pair of unique lightning claws, with a holstered archaeotech pistol and a coiled whip at his belt. His unique armour and flight pack are extensively detailed. Corax is depicted landing among battlefield ruins and his detachable scenic base features an enemy Legionnaire being executed by the Raven Lord.

This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes a 40mm gaming base and 60mm scenic base. It is presented in a black Horus Heresy Character Series box.

He costs £70 or $101.

I will be getting one for sure.

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:
Good hunting!

Showcase: Raven Guard Tactical Squad by Fruitbearer

Posted on August 12th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Hi everyone, it’s Fruitbearer. It’s been a while since my last poste. I know I’ve said I will have some Ork Shoota boys up here but other projects have gotten in the way, especially this one. This Raven Guard Squad took me quite a long time to finish since I did only 5 marines and finished the other 5 a significantly long time after.

Space marine rumours – The Burning Eye’s take

Posted on May 5th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Morning all, I realise I don’t address rumours all that often, but I figured as this one is particularly applicable to me (and has me pretty excited) I’d post up my thoughts.

Do Marines really need a new dex? Their current one isn’t 2 years old yet! Let’s have a look at the arguments from both sides shall we? What I’m not going to discuss here is the idea of a PDF update, we know GW don’t take that approach and quite frankly the fewer bits of paper I need to carry with me the better.
