Forgeworlds has new releases for us up for pre-order this week, the Necron Tesseract Ark and Necron Sentry Pylons. In a little bit I have some new pics from Adepticon on some of the latest works in progress that Forgeworld has to offer.

Hi there,
            This week we turn our attention back to the Necrons of the sinister Maynarkh Dynasty, with two fantastic new kits that are now available to pre-order. It’s also a weekend packed with events, too, as Forge World is in both Chicago, IL, for AdeptiCon, and London for Salute; read on to find out details of which exciting pre-releases and new kits will be available at each show.
Necron Tesseract Ark
Necron Tesseract ArkThe Tesseract Ark is one of the most powerful Necron war machines encountered on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium, and so sophisticated is its design, it can be manufactured only by the most adept of Crypteks. Built around a contained singularity torn from the heart of a dying star, in battle the Tesseract Ark can siphon the destructive energies of this captured star-fragment and unleash them in a variety of terrible ways. The armoured bulk of the Tesseract Ark is  also surrounded by a gravitic distortion effect, a potent defensive mechanism.
The Tesseract Ark, designed by Daren Parrwood, is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit, packed with detail. The forward armour and arcane projector array of its singularity chamber give it a unique profile, making a fantastic and menacing centrepiece for a Necron army.


Necron Sentry Pylons 
Necron Sentry Pylon with Gauss ExterminatorThe stasis-tombs of the Necrons are vast and shadowy edifices, and many an Imperial Explorator expedition has made planetfall on a dead world only to vanish without trace; slain at the hands of the unliving guardian-constructs that watch over their slumbering masters.
Among these defences are automated weapons platforms of strange design known as Pylons. Some of these are huge, cyclopean constructs, but Imperial tactical logisticians have codified smaller, tactical variants as Sentry Pylons. These powerful devices are arcs of glittering metal equipped with a weapons array that can strike down enemy aircraft at ranges so great as to be almost beyond comprehension. Some are outfitted with a gauss exterminator array, a larger and more potent example of the hellish energy weapons carried by the Necron soldiery. This can be employed against ground targets with no loss of effectiveness, scouring vast areas clear of life and cutting buildings down to little more than smoking rubble.
The Necron Sentry Pylon with Gauss Exterminator, designed by Stuart Williamson, is a  multi-part resin kit that stands almost 6" (150mm) tall. The Sentry Pylon’s cruciform arc profile is packed with detail, making it a fantastic painting project as well as a potent battlefield unit.
Full rules and background for these two war machines can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus, and both the Sentry Pylon and the Tesseract Ark are available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 3rd May.

  2. I remember seeing the mock up for the Tesseract Ark at Games Day and thinking it would look dorky but seeing the finished product I think it looks pretty cool.

  4. Sentry Pylons are still putting me off, but I do like the one with Ark side panels instead of extra crescents. Wish they were multikits, though, because paying $70 for each variant hurts. I'll totally buy a Tesseract Ark though!
