New from Forgeworld is a release nothing short of incredible. Abaddon and Lokken are here, dispay box and all. Don't forget to check out the video at the bottom of the page.,






Abaddon and Loken
Ezekyle Abaddon, First Captain of the Sons of Horus and Master of the Justaerin, was one of the most renowned and fanatically loyal commanders of the XVIth Legion. A hulking brute of a Space Marine, whispered rumour had long speculated that he was the clone-progeny of the Warmaster himself. Regardless, Abaddon walked willingly into treachery alongside his master, slaughtering many of his former comrades on the blasted fields of Isstvan III, and soon his name was amongst the most feared and despised of the traitor Horus’ followers.

Garviel Loken once commanded the 10th Company of the Luna Wolves Legion; later the Sons of Horus. He was a well-respected and senior commander, and one of the Mournival, the unofficial cadre of Horus’ closest advisors. His idealism and staunch loyalty to the Emperor and Humanity saw him selected to command the Sons of Horus contingent in the assault against the recidivists of Isstvan III. When the true scope of betrayal was revealed, Loken and his comrades cast aside their Legion name and proclaimed themselves Luna Wolves once more. They exacted a heavy toll on those they had once called brother, but it was as the Last Captain of the Luna Wolves that Garviel Loken fell.

This very special pair of models are supplied in a particularly handsome presentation box, just like Angron, and Abaddon and Loken are multi-part resin models, each packed with Legion-specific iconography. Each is dynamically posed and supplied on 40mm and 20mm bases respectively for gaming purposes. The figures also slot into a large scenic base to allow the fateful duel between the two to be represented.

Simon Egan has designed two stunningly detailed figures to depict these two most famous commanders of the Sons of Horus Legion. Loken is charging forward, his hatred of the traitors writ clear upon his features, while Abaddon is braced to receive his former brother’s assault, the Eye of Horus having replaced all Imperial iconography upon his armour. Abaddon is additionally supplied with two weapon options: an ornate power sword and the combi-bolter that his wargear includes for normal battlefield use.

The Abaddon and Loken set is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 1st March.

  2. £55 though, that's a pretty tasty price tag.

    1. Seriuosly, this. 27 pounds per miniature? Ridiculous even for FW standards

    2. They are collector's items belonging to a niche era within a niche game within a niche market. Of course they will have a hefty price tag. You either save up for it or you don't. It's not like you "deserve" one.

      I'm going to buy every piece for this series. Maybe two so I can't paint and sell one batch and keep the other sealed.

  3. Not often they use the word stunning that I feel it fits, but this is an amazing exception.

    1. It wasn't described as closely cropped silver in the book, which I interpreted as kind of a silvery white blond.

    2. Well, it's not like he's sculpted as a blonde. That's just paint. :)

  5. Forge World keeps inmproving. These are 2 excedingly good center peice characters. It is almost enough to make me do a Sons of Horus army...Dangnabit...Dark Angels pre+post Heresy AND a Sons of Horus/Chaos army...trying to figure out a useful list in both setting using the same miniatures..ARGH!

  6. Forgeworld sculpts improve greatly, but no their prices remain stable. These miniatures and others like them are why despite the high cost, I won't regret buying from them

    1. They will release Russ when there are rules for him. First they release all the models in betrayal. There will be a prospero book. So he will probably come with that one.

  8. I don't play space marines or Chaos, but I'd still consider getting these just because these Heresy miniatures are so amazing.

  9. Great sculpts, but £55 each? That's a new record I think, even for FW!

    1. * £55 for both - 27,5 each :)

    2. Technically that's £55 for the pair, only £5 more than Angron... Bargain! xD

    3. And the huge chunk of resin on the large base brings the price per model lower.

      Any centrepiece like this is going to cost a lot, and I don't have a problem with it at all when I normally despise GW/FW pricing

    4. Not making a judgement on the act of acquisition Luke, merely the act of pricing - it IS a new record on single marine sized minis.

      I suppose such is the nature of the hobby :D

  10. My favourite part about this kit is the sculpts ability to convey a real sense of emotion between the two models. damn just looking at their faces you can tell they really do hate each other

  11. Clearly Loken loses because his chainsword is AP- but Abbadon has an AP3 Power Sword
