In this weeks Forgeworld newsletter we are getting the World Eaters Legion Rampager Squads. Not only are these blood thirsty marines up for release, there are a number of shoulder pads being released. 

I really like the various weapon layouts in this set. It looks like there is enough variety in the models, rather just giving us 5 marines with chain axes. 

Forgeworld Newsletter #332
           
 This week we bring you news of an eagerly anticipated Legion squad release, the fearsome World Eaters Rampagers, as well as a new Legion weapon set, and five new Legion shoulder pad sets too!
World Eaters Legion Rampager Squad
World Eaters Rampager SquadThe Rampager squads of the World Eaters were formed of the most savage and bloodthirsty Space Marines in a Legion already notorious for its fury in battle. All underwent the prohibited psycho-surgery that Angron is believed to have instigated among his favoured sons. Those who survived honed their newly enhanced desire for berserk slaughter through martial discipline and the mastery of cruel and vicious weapons adapted from the arena combats in which the Red Angel fought during his youth.
Of those World Eaters who were plunged too far into madness by their Legion’s experiments, little is known, but dark rumours whisper that they now form the ranks of the Caedere, or ‘butchers’; a dark foreshadowing of the red-handed future of the XIIth Legion.
Designed by Mark Bedford and Will Hayes, the World Eaters Legion Rampager Squadcontains five complete multi-part resin models, which are packed with Legion-specific detail. Each member of the squad is presented helmetless in order to show the surgical implants the Rampagers received, and the kit also contains a meteor hammer, two Excoriator chainaxes, a barb-hook lash and a pair of Falax blades; all weapons unique to the World Eaters Legion that can also be used to build XIIth Legion characters.
Legion Phobos Pattern Chainaxes
Less common a sight than the ubiquitous chainsword, the chainaxe was used almost wholesale by the World Eaters Legion, its savage nature and brutal appearance a match for their merciless style of warfare.
Designed by Will Hayes, the Phobos Pattern Chainaxe set contains five Phobos-pattern chainaxes and five bolt pistols. It is fully compatible with ourPower Armour mark sets models, and is perfect for portraying the ferocious warriors of Angron’s Legion.
Legion Shoulder Pad Sets
Keith Robertson has been busy designing sets of World EatersDeath GuardSons of Horus and Emperor’s Children Legion MkIII shoulder pads, as well as a set of Death Guard Legion Cataphractii Shoulder Pads. Each pack contains ten resin shoulder pads featuring Legion-specific iconography.
All of these fantastic new releases are available to pre-order now for despatch week commencing the 1st of March.

  2. Man, those FW paint jobs are terrible. Looks like something done by an amateur. I can even see some mould lines in the pictures. Yuck.

    2. Yes, it is.
      I think the new painter of FW has really low paint skills, or they are trying to save money and the painter is a relative of the FW's team.

    3. FW models compete with GW's range for dollars. They don't intend to compete with themselves with a new line of models. Hence, they keep the prices up, keep the paint quality down, and don't invest the resources in marketing like they do with the main miniature range.

    4. I think terrible is a little harsh, don't you think? I think they look good. I admit seeing models painted to the highest standard possible is awesome, but I also love to see the every day painter just paint them to high table top quality.

  3. Armour = great, love the arms
    weapons = great, that 2-handed axe is gorgeous
    heads = erm... look something like a conversion company would produce :/

    1. World Eaters use brain-implants chips to be more violent and furious than the normal Astarters.

  4. I am unhappy to see the bare-arm thing coming back. I hated it when GW did it for Berserkers, and don't much like it here. I have no problem with the rest of the mini, I like it, just not the bare arm. Obviously these guys don't do void fighting or boarding actions. One bare arm would be a *challenge*.

  6. Again power armour... what a terrible lack of ideas for a miniatures company... and I mean BOTH GW and FW.

    1. The truth is, power armor is what sells. The manager at my FLGS said that, overall, vanilla Space Marines out-sell the entire Fantasy range (and his store is fully stocked with both 40K and WHFB kits & singles). So, from an ROI perspective, it makes sense for GW (& FW) to focus on SMs... That may not be what you want to hear, but it's the economic reality of their business...
