More Games Day UK information is happening as we speak. Now we have a couple pics of models we just saw here in the prevous post, but from new angles, and of course some new things I had not seen yet.... Necrons. Also the next Horus Heresy book will be called "Massacre".



Here is the latest from Neil at Tyken's Rift, and a link below.

Hi Natfka,
I spent a long time speaking to Forge World designers and staff today and I have some info to share.
All this is 100% accurate (unless they change their minds!). :)

Warhammer Forge:
Next book will be "Battle of the Blackfire Pass"
There will be some Empire command figures and some Goblin command figures.

Warhammer 40K:
Next Imperial Armour book will be out before christmas and is a 6th Edition Imperial Guard update volume - features ALL IG vehicles that Forge World currently sell.

Imperial Armour 12 is called 'The Fall of Orpheus" and features Necrons, Death Corps of Krieg and Minatour Space Marines.

New Necron Pylon, Necron Tesseract Arc and Necron Night Shroud Bomber are incoming as is the Lightning Fighter MK2.

There will be a Dark Eldar Imperial armour book at some point in the future.

Horus Heresy:
For 'Betrayal' we will see Legion Heavy Weapon squads, Death Guard and World Eater Contemptor pattern Dreadnoughts as well as special weapon and close combat weapon upgrade packs!

There are Legion Champion models as well as Justaerin Terminators. As you have seen, Simon Egan is sculpting Abaddon and Loken! No plans yet for Torgaddon and Little Horus.

We will also see 'Thallax' marines - these are somewhere between a Terminator and a Dreadnought. That's all we were told about them.


Book 2 will be Istvaan 5 part one and is called 'Massacre'. It will feature Mechanicum models, Word Bearers, Night Lords, Salamanders and Iron Hands!!

There will be a new Titan variant - Warlord was mentioned! - and there will be a Stormbird of some kind. They were vague about this but said discussions had taken place.

We will also see daemon primarchs further down the line! :)

Oh...  and one last thing - the next Primarch will be Fulgrim!!

  4. Necrons amd Death Korps? My two armies?! Toghether?! In the same book?!

    YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. It's not Loken. It's a placeholder. Abaddon is finished but Loken isn't yet

    1. Cheers for confirming this Neil, though i had misheard as a few people are posting it as abbadon and loken!

      Delete
    2. No worries! Simon Egan is doing Fulgrim after Loken apparently.

    3. For clarity I spoke with Simon Egan and he said that the diorama will contain Abbadon and liken but liken isn't finished for liken so the one in the image is just an idea of the pose however he also said the weapons on the place-holder model will be the final ones on Loken.

  6. Abaddon moving to Forgeworld, eh? I wonder if this is the future of special characters in general.

    Necrons get the Tesseract? Did they watch The Avengers? We know what that can do. So long as there are no gems and an Infinity Gauntlet...

    1. Well, Abaddon is a pretty big HH character so I wouldnt read too much into it, I'd imagine there'll also be HH Kharn and Ahriman models for e.g. Personally I'm finger crossing, hoping and praying that they do a HH Bjorn the fell handed - F**K yeah!

  8. At the FW seminar I picked up on the following.
    The 3rd HH book would not be Istvaan III part 2.
    The Thallax Marines are a mechanicum unit, a large suit of powered armour with some organic components.
    I asked about whether there would be a Stormbird, Tony C said that they were not sure yet what a SB actually looked like, it was considered a generic name for winged dropships.
    I also asked about Custodes and Sisters of Silence.
    TC said we won't see them soon ..but they will be needed when they get around to looking at Prospero.
    Also the FW books will cover Istvaan onwards no current plans for any of the prequel stuff like battles on Murder or Shrike.
    The slide showing the marine heavy weapons had troops holding Autocannons (single barrel) and Heavy bolters.
    Someone asked about Knights and TC said that Mars was definitely a topic they are considering covering.

    1. Heavy bolters had round ammo drums

  9. Picked up the HH book today at games day. It is BEAUTIFUL indeed! (an very heavy!)
    The Primarchs are monstrous but not overly crazy. Also, they are not apocalypse only :)

    1. Ya good luck making me play against the Emporer or Russ!

    2. Do they have all the Primarchs in Betrayal? Or just Horus and Angron?

      Delete
    3. Horus, Angron, Fulgrim and Mortarion. Great stats too!

    4. OOps replies to thread not this post ^^
      Yeh as above just the 4 for now but Abbadon is in there as well iirc.

    5. There are restrictions on Primarchs JayDee, you will have to use sizeable armies before you can take them

  10. What in the world is that tank with three barrels?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's a Cerberus Heavy Tank Destroyer. Gun is a 'Neutron Laser'. S10, AP1, Ord D3

      Delete
  11. Haha. Fulgrim is a beast in close combat!
    The general Legion units are also really awesome, power armoured marines with snipers, marine units with auto cannons. Most vehicles can take havoc launchers. There re some really funky weapons with crazy rules! A pre-heresy landraider with 3 giant cannons mounted on the front (essentially the original Achilles but with a quad mortor :D)
    Also, the marine jetbikes look cool in pictures but in real life i swear to god they are hovering penis'!
    Also, I managed to get Alan Bligh to sigh the book :)

  13. I want books covering the Schisma of the Martian Mechanicum now!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Really? They're gunna do a book about the Drop Site Massacre, but not include the Raven Guard? Bull fucking shit

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree! And where the heck are my Alphas?

      Delete
    2. It's part one of the drop site massacre. Tony Cotterill said there would be a part 2. Presumably the other legions will be catered for in that volume.

      Delete
    3. yes but that will not be HH book 3... so there will be a wait

      Delete
  15. Did anyone find out if FW are going to release heresy-era landspeeders and vindicators?

    ReplyDelete

    1. The latest Forgeworld catalogue now puts a little Eye of Horus symbol next to any model that they deem official to the HH ruleset.

      Delete
  16. Was thinking....a Tau 30k army. Better brush up on my WFB rules (huge grin)

    (Wood elf bodies, Tau heads)

    But seriously, there's some VERY cool looking models there...my necron playing son is going to go nuts. My other one already is drooling over DV (DA and CSM fan)

    ReplyDelete
  17. If you want it Naftka, I got a few pics of abbadon (somewhat less pixelated), The anti armour gun (mini thunderfire), the necron figures pictures (again, slightly clearer), and a few new fantsay models (all new stuff), Its not too much but Ill get them for you.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seeing as how fulgrim is responsible for owning at least 3 loyalist primarchs he better be a beast. I'm kinda iffy on releasing primarchs with rules as there's the chance they won't represent how awesome most of them are in the fluff.

    1. Who was the third one? Cause I remember He Decapitated Ferrus Manus and I remember with joy that he slit guillimans throat (YAY!) but who was the third one he killed?

  19. I love the new Necron models!!! I am pondering hard what the tesseract will do!
