More rumors are coming in about the Primarch Models and Titans for the Horus Heresy series from Forgeworld. Many of us are just waiting to see these models, and I am sure they will be big hits. It seems there for traitor legions and their Primarchs there will be two versions released, both from when they were loyal, and one when they became traitors. More details below.


Please remember that these are rumors

This comes to us via some of our sources.
We’ve been told that the traitor Primarch models and legions will be released in two versions: loyal and traitor.

This was further clarified to mean that for the Primarchs there will be two completely different models, one before and one after they betray the Emperor. For the other models (Infantry were specifically mentioned) they would have different shoulder pads and paint schemes. The loyal versions will be appropriately loyal looking, the traitors will be dark and angry.

We were also told that the Warlord Titan would be released near the end (the Battle of Mars was specifically mentioned) and that Forgeworld would also be releasing a full Mechanicum army to go with it! SWEET!

Furthermore, the rules for APoc will be streamlined into 6th ed 40K through HH. We were told that they would have less extra rules and be geared towards 1v1 play. These rules would allow you to play very large games without changing basic 40K much, and this does seem to fall in line with other rumors we’ve been hearing about very large games of HH.

So this sounds pretty dang amazing, awesome, and fantastic. Really excited for all of it.

    2. Neither are pointless comments unrelated to the topic at hand and contributing nothing to the discussion pertaining to Natfka's original post.

  6. Here I was wondering how I was going to get all these new Primarch purchases past the Missus. Now there are 2? I might have to sock some of this money away for alimony....

  7. BTW, there are new models on the Forge World Events page, for anyone who doesn't get the newsletter. Fellblade super-heavy, Typhon Siege Tank, Legion specific doors, and realm of battle boards for a city based war.

    1. What else would they mean? I'm certain they meant daemon prince primarchs, I was wondering what else it could be.

    2. Or one version in Imperial iconography and one in Chaotic iconography and possibly with some minor mutations/ cosmetic alterations but still mortal, not yet daemonic.

      Delete
    3. Hit it right on the nose. Remember not all the fallen Primarchs became daemon princes.

      Delete
    4. Ahh, I'd forgotten that. Presumably the ones that later turned daemon would get daemon models, and the ones that didn't would get chaotic versions. That would make sense.
      Thanks for reminding me of that!

  10. I wonder how they will do Alpharius and Omega (and indeed the whole AL)? And of course Lorgar and Magnus.

    Are the rumours still saying that HH books 2 & 3 (Istvaan V) will be out this side of Christmas, or are these more likely the books of the next year?

  11. Warlord Titan?

    Did somebody say Warlord Titan?

    "Towards the end" could mean we'll be waiting a couple of years. Depends on the Horus Heresy books from Black Library.

    That gives me time to save up. Never mind $1000, it'll probably be more like £1000!

    This compensates me for my lack of interest in the Horus Heresy books and models. In fact a battle company with primarch would cost the price of a Warlord with weapons.

    1. I anticipate £650 for the body, and £90-100 for the arm weapons. Just a guess, but one that seems about right for a Titan 24-28" tall.

      Delete
    2. There will also be the body weapons too.

      Don't care, I must save up and have one.

      Delete
    3. True. £60 each? Making a Warlord Titan £970, by my estimation. Damn, Tau Manta price. On the other hand, if a Primarch costs £30 each, then that's £810 if there are doubles for the traitor primarchs.

    4. If the Warlord titan is supposed to be 33m tall, it should come out at approximately 59cm in height. By simplistic volumetric comparison to the Mars pattern Reaver titan at 40cm and £420.00 for the body, the Warlord should come out with a price tag of £1348.20 [=£420(59 cm/40 cm)^3]!
      Plus the price of weapons, shipping and the doctors fee for treatment of a nervous brake-down when you have dropped it from the gaming table...
      -RR

    5. True. BUT:
      A warhound Titan is 10" tall and costs £245.
      A reaver Titan is 16" tall and costs £415.
      Erring on the side of more money, that's roughly a 60% increase in height and money. If a Warlord is 24" tall (based on a statistic I found comparing the heights of titans), then that's around a 50% increase in size from the reaver, giving a price of £622.50, rounding up to £650 to be on the safe side. That's how I worked out the price.
      BTW, Forge World give free shipping over £250.

  12. Mecanicum army? Oh dog. Time to get that second mortgage.

  13. There is a guy on Dakka that figured out the exact heights for Titans, which you are right Shrike. Great thing is I built my titan to this spec BEFORE I saw this pic.

  14. A Mechanicum army? that's the best news I've heard from FW...since ever, I'm really so happy to hear that. I always hoped FW would do the Mechanicum (I mean hell they ARE called Forge World!) so that is really great to hear they will get a fully army eventually. Not a fan of Titans - but it's good to hear the warlord is coming too, plenty of people would love one so that is good news as well.

  15. Mechanicum Army!!! Forgeworld army will be expensive to collect :(

  16. I think I'll just stick to the Primarchs as they can be used as either Lords/Daemon Princes in CSM.
