I have been slipping behind on the Horus Heresy releases, with all the Chaos Space Marine bits. The Horus Heresy will be a great series of models and books to collect, for years to come. I really like these jetbikes and look forward to seeing more of these models on Games Day UK this weekend when we should be just flooded with pics.
These pics are all from Forgeworld. For pricing and pre-ordering, just follow the link.
The Horus Heresy Book I:
Betrayal will be on sale for the very first time, in limited numbers, at Games Day UK on Sunday 23rd September.
Lavishly decorated, this book is leather-bound with inlaid metal detailing and foil-blocked page edging, and also features metal cleats to the corners of the book’s casing impressed with the Imperial Aquila. This 290-page tome delves into the fratricidal conflict on Isstvan III that saw Warmaster Horus’s traitor Legions purge their own ranks of those legionaries that would remain loyal to Terra.
It is a stand-alone supplement for Warhammer 40,000 and contains a vast array of colour profiles, maps and artwork. Also included is a full Space Marine Legion army list and background, histories, character profiles and special rules for the Death Guard, Sons of Horus, World Eaters and Emperor’s Children Legions.
Cataphractii Pattern Terminators and Weapon Sets
Terminator armour is the finest protective wargear in the arsenal of the Legiones Astartes. Several different Tactical Dreadnought Armour patterns were developed roughly concurrently by different Forge Worlds during the later decades of the Great Crusade, and most of these, such as the Indomitus, Tartaros and Saturnine patterns, were functionally identical.
The Cataphractii Pattern was amongst the first issued, and suits of this type were even more heavily protected than their contemporaries. Slab-like ceramite pauldrons housed additional shield generators, although this formidable protection came at the cost of the wearer’s speed, and the trade between agility and survivability meant that this pattern was beginning to decline among some Legions at the outbreak of the Heresy.
Space Marine Legion Command Upgrade Packs
The Legiones Astartes maintains the ancient martial traditions of Terra; their officers and sergeants often marking themselves out with a helmet crest in the manner of the Romanii of Ancient Terra, while each squad, company and Chapter bears a standard as a rallying point in the midst of battle, and a spur to glory. Each squad maintains constant co-ordination with other elements of their Legion, be they in orbit or in other theatres of war on a given world, using so-called nuncio-voxes which are often built into a modified power armour backpack and helm.
Space Marine Typhon Heavy Siege Tank
Named for the ‘Great Beast’ of Ancient Terran myth, this immense siege tank was developed by the Mechanicum alongside the Spartan, with which it shares a basic chassis design.
The Typhon’s primary armament is the massive Dreadhammer cannon, and was created in response to a request from the Primarch Peturabo, master of the Iron Warriors. He demanded a Legiones Astartes war engine that could rival the great batteries of the Imperial Crusade Army in firepower, but manoeuvre and deploy at the speed of a Space Marine force.
Realm of Battle Cityscape Tiles
In a galaxy beset by war, Imperial architecture is by necessity brutal and fortified. Should the Alien, the Traitor or the Heretic attempt to assault an Imperial world, more often than not it is the great cities of humanity that become battlegrounds; open plazas turning into killing grounds while shattered hab-blocks and ruined Administratum complexes become garrisoned redoubts. The humble tools of civilian infrastructure are transformed into key objectives, with generatorum waypoints becoming vital sources of power and sewer networks being pressed into service as guerrilla highways and concealed ambush points
Space Marine Fellblade Super-heavy Tank
Based upon the same STC data as the Baneblade and Deathhammer super-heavy tanks, which are a mainstay of the vast brigades of the Imperial Army, the Fellblade is a more advanced variant that first saw widespread service with the Legiones Astartes in the last decades of the Great Crusade.
It is most noted for its use of Mechanicum atomantic arc-reactor technology and a reinforced metaplas alloy chassis superior even to that of the Baneblade, alongside an advanced accelerator cannon as its primary armament. These systems are all fruits of Dark Age technologies rediscovered and restored to humanity shortly before the nightmare of the Great Heresy.
Space Marine Legion Land Raider, Rhino and MkIIb Land Raider Door Sets
Simon Egan and Edgar Skomorowski have designed sets of Land Raider, Rhino and MkIIb Land Raider Doors for the Death Guard, Emperor’s Children and World Eaters Legions. These door sets will be available to buy in limited quantities at Games Day UK on Sunday 23rd September.
Each set contains a front plate and two side doors for the relevant Legion, and are fully compatible with our full range of vehicle kits. Please note that the doors supplied in the Rhino Door Sets will not fit onto our Deimos Pattern vehicles.
Scimitar Pattern Space Marine Legion Jetbike
Squadrons of ‘Sky Hunters’ are fielded by almost all of the Legiones Astartes. These feared strike units are heavily armed and mounted upon sophisticated and powerful craft more akin to small flyers than ground bikes. There are several patterns of jetbike produced by the Mechanicum, all of which are modified from designs that pre-date the Imperium, and all of which are in considerable demand by the Space Marine Legions.
Space Marine Legion Shoulder Pads, Decals and Etched Brass
Simon Egan and Edgar Skomorowski have designed sets of MkII and MkIV shoulder pads for the Sons of Horus, Death Guard, Emperor’s Children and World Eaters Legions. Each set contains 10 resin shoulder pads bearing Legion insignia, and each set will be on sale in limited numbers at Games Day.
We’ll also have limited numbers of Sons of Horus and Death Guard Etched Brass and World Eaters, Sons of Horus and Death Guard Decal Sheets, each designed by Paul Rudge and each packed with Legion-specific heraldry, blazons and squad insignia.
