According to this set, there is a lot in the works for the Horus Heresy coming in the next month. So for fans of the Horus Heresy line from Forgeworld, its time to get out your wallet for 2013.


Please remember that these are rumors

 FW horus heresy: betrayal units rumors
I posted this in the project logs in response to some discussion there, but I'll just drop this here as well:

Still to come from Betrayal:
Primarchs:
Horus
Fulgrim
Mortarion

Legion specific characters, aka Abaddon, Garviel, Crysos, etc... At last count I believe there are 8 or 9 in the works...
Legion specific units, aka DeathShroud, ravages, etc. I believe there are still 3 to be released
Legion badged contemptors for Sons of Horus and Emporer's Children

Mecanicum HQ
Mecanicum units, I believe there are 2 to be released

Heresy era Vindicator
Heresy era land speeders
Mk ii/iii special weapons kit
Rotor cannon kit (there are iirc 4 or 5 kits due that contain 5 weapons and an augury)
Destroyer squad upgrade kit
Rapier platform kits, there are iirc 2 more rapier platform kits coming

Praetor kit in tartaros armor
Centurion kits ( there are 2 more 2 packs I'm aware of, but I believe there may be more coming. I think the moritat and Forgelord are up soon, next in line for the centurion releases that is, not next as in tomorrow). And I think vigilant and chaplain are the other set.

For tomorrow, I'm expecting the mk II special weapons kit similar to last weeks mk Iv set. This has some identical bits, mk ii assault arms, the older style hand flamers with the funnel barrels and a load of other weapons and bits.

And I believe it's tomorrow the death shroud are up for pre-order.

Next week I am expecting something big...

And another Primarch is supposed to be unveiled in Jan...

Additional Information since original posting of this rumor
The destroyers kit iirc includes left and right hand bolt pistols for 5 models, 3 chainswords, 2 combat blades, assault arms, some grenades and bits, and a missile launcher. It might have a couple alternate wargear pistols as well, but I dont recall seeing those.

  1. Nice. This would probably end up taking up the entire year.
    Though I really want to know when they may be producing other leigon specific things? I'm hoping Blood Angels, but who knows?

  2. Suspicious he claims Horus to be getting a model now, the forge world blokes at GDUK stated explicitly that they won't be doin him until probably the last book

    1. There's several pictures of the Horus model, it's not secret that there will be one.
      FW once said they would never do the Horus Heresy, but here we are.

    2. Link to said pics please

    3. Forgeworld have said that Primarches will probably have multiple sculpts so a 'loyalist' Horus is to be expected.

      Delete
    4. What? Someone didn't get the memo that FW was doing the Horus HERESY. He's the guy leading the rebellion.

    5. just google horus forgeworld model, you'll find plenty of pics of the model, as it has already been put out there.

      Delete
    6. He just listed all the stuff in the FW book that dosnt have a model yet. Yeah, stick monkey make a fool of you all again by pointing at the sky and saying its blue.

  3. Personally, I can't wait for the Abaddon vs Loken duel set. But anyway, I'm sure whatever FW release next year will be the usual awesome.

  4. Volume Two is titled 'Massacre' and will cover part one of the Isstvan V campaign (FW are in this for the long haul guys n gals) It will feature forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus, Iron Hands, Salamanders, Word Bearers and the Night Lords.

    From the UK Games Day 2012 seminar by forge world. Reported by The Veil's Edge at:-

    http://theveilsedge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/uk-games-day-2012-pt-i-forge-world.html#more

    Not sure listing the remaing units and weapons packs from the existing book is a difficult rumor to devise. Hopefully Stickmonkey HAS actually seen this stuff.

    1. If its covering "part one" why in the world aren't the Raven Guard in there alongside the Salamanders and Iron Hands? Word Bearers and Night Lords dropped in during the second wave.

      Delete
    2. Betrayal gives options for both Loyalists and Traitors (although very similar at this point) so the legion split may be to balance the books. 7 more legions went to Isstvan V and 4 of those revealed themselves as traitors (Word Bearers, Night Lords, Alpha Legion, Iron Warriors). If they were splitting the books' legions that would give a 2/2 split for part one and a 2/1 split for part two, traitors and loyalists respectively.

      Delete
    3. I think a far more sensible option would be to separate it along the lines of the two clearly stages of the conflict.
      1) the initial strike - raven guard, iron hands and salamanders vs world eaters, death guard, emperor's children and sons of horus
      2) the drop site massacre - all of the above + night lords, alpha legion, word bearers and iron warriors

  5. Tbh, these were kind of obvious; FW are going to release more or less everything in Betrayal by the end of this year, so just scanning through it will tell you all that's going to be released which hasn't been already. And I think stickmonkey missed a few things. I've seen chainaxes and a caedere weapon on the assault on the precentor's palace video, so would expect a set for those soon, individually or as a World Eaters upgrade pack.

  6. This is hardly a rumor, these are just the units in the HH book that simply don't have models, I'm sure here didn't strain anything with this "rumor".

    1. yeah, i got called a bitch for pointing that out when he posted this on Bols days ago. So the "tommorrow is X" is already wrong.

  7. Another Primarch on Jan.? Could Be Russ, Khan or Dorn perhaps?
    One thing i can say for certain: It will NOT be Primarch Lion El'Jonson. (I hope no-one understands sarcasm) :D

    1. Gamesday UK reported Fulgrim was the next Primarch to be released.

      Delete
    2. obviously its not russ, khan, or dorn. they are covering the initial known betrayers first. Then comes istvaan massacre which includes a few more traitors and the ambushed loyalists. None of which includes those 3 primarchs.

  8. I heard primarches were droped, caus the Last one Sold so Bad. Mich fewer than expectet

    1. Oh ye, cause forgeworld models are all best sellers. Forgeworld has always catered to a niche of 40k players...

      Delete
    2. still moulds and design cost money
      if you put a price to 20 times of that of normal marine you are kinda asking to not sell
      so even at that high price and the few Nr. they sold it might not have been enough to return the money of the moulds

      Delete
    3. They probably expected Angron to not exactly be a best seller so they released him first. You want Horus or Sanguinius or Russ then you've got to wait while the lure of forgeworld draws you ever closer in the meantime...

      Delete
  9. I want Dorn and Sigimund models. They better be uber sexy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Years ago they had a model for Sigismund, the old Emperors champion model I believe. It's got a cool pose but shows it's age... A forgeworld sculpt based on that would be beyond awesome though!

      Delete
  10. The 'Betrayal' book, as a book is glorious. A thing of beauty. The army list provides a lot of options and some really innovative choices.

    What puzzles me is the new things (rotor cannons, vulkite weapons) are, err, a bit wibbly.

    That said, being able to field 5 tactical/veteran/termiantor units in stormeagles and caestus rams is jolly funky. I like it and hope they continue to produce more. Trouble is, at £50 for Angron even fortunate as I am I think twice.
