More Horus Heresy is up for pre-order this week, and model wise, they are some of the sexist models to date. I just love the Scimitar Jetbike, and I wish it was on my list of things to get right now. Here are the prices and a link to get your orders in, and yes, Im jealous.



Scimitar Pattern Space Marine Legion Jetbike £25.00
Scimitar Pattern Space Marine Legion Jetbike Squadron £70.00
Typhon Heavy Siege Tank £95.00

Scimitar Pattern Space Marine Legion Jetbike via Forgeworld

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. Their size allows for a potent heavy weapon armament, and it is not uncommon for these squadrons to range far ahead of the main strength of a Space Marine force, striking targets of opportunity at will.



Typhon Heavy Siege Tank via Forgeworld
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.

  1. Wow, those Jetbikes are epic,

    Think they fit really well into the pre-heresy theme, wonder if they will ever bring them back for use with 40k.

    Still happy I can use the current bikes for my Imperial guard rough riders :D

    3. I hope they're not as phallic as these.

    4. But... the phallicness is the best thing about these! They're seriously good models.

  2. My local club had a Horus Herasy campaign running a couple of years back. They'd have sold their grandmothers to get hold of this stuff. I sat out myself though. Didn't feel like sculpting firewarriors armed with... spears! :)

  3. I wonder if those also ship with missing pieces.

    Any forge world order arrives here with 2/3 of their models missing pieces. When I call they always send me a couple pieces but never all that's missing...

  4. I agree with what you meant, those are beautiful models, but not "sexist". sorry for pointing that out, IMO it was just kindof funny.

  5. If DA don't have a 0-1 JetBike unit with lances then GW are sadly stupid.

  7. Sorry for pointing it out but they look exactly like competitors' models. They're extremely nice but I'd expected more this time. Don't get me wrong, I'll take what is offered.

    1. I've looked into every type of 3rd party jetbike out there, from Maxmini, Chapterhouse, as well as Blood and Skulls. The most attractive to my mind is the Maxmini bike, the prow of which looks like Sammael's 'bullock' jetbike.

      This looks nothing like any of them.

  8. "some of the sexiest models to date"
