New Forgeworld Kits Available Soon, and a Good Look at Corvus Corax



Today in the Forgeworld Bulletin it is mentioned that at the Horus Heresy Weekender at the end of this month, a lot of the new models that we have recently seen will be available. They also showed off the new Corvus Corax Primarch model in a nice video. The model looks so good painted up!

With The Horus Heresy Weekender coming up, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see these new kits available soon. If you are going to the Weekender, you’ve got until 24th January to place your order for collection to make sure your get exactly what you want at the event. You can even place your order online, just make sure you’ve selected the UK as your country of delivery and you can select The Horus Heresy Weekender as your shipping destination.

Last week we added a new video to the Forge World Visual Feed. Check it out now for a closer look at the latest member of The Horus Heresy Character Series – Corvus Corax, Primarch of the Raven Guard.

  1. I miss the older videos. I liked hearing where the inspiration came from, the hardest part to make and all that jaz

    1. Wish they would have continued making those after the Dark Eldar interview with Phil and Jes. I especially wanted to hear Jes' thoughts on designing the Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus models... but alas.

    2. +100^ Why they stopped doing those completely baffles me. The Dark Eldar one with Jes and Phil was one of the most inspiring things. Watching them talk so passionately made me start collecting DE almost immediately. The bit where Jes says "it's all going off in Commorragh" was classic!

  2. It's a bit of a shame about the pose. When I ask myself 'What is Corax doing?' The answer is more likely to be 'Brooding Batman-style on a rocky outcropping' or even 'Alighting from flight, brandishing his claws' than 'Being super into shooting a random legionary in the chest with a pistol never used in a novel'

    3. Unfortunately (not) primary canon when it comes to GW is the rulebooks & codices so if Corax has a pair of archotech pistols then he has a pair of those. The HH novels may flesh out the setting but it's the FW guys that make them "real" by officially committing characters into the 30k rulebooks. GW/BL novels are secondary canon and always come second to the core stuff (thankfully because some of them are bloody awful*) in the same way that the Aliens/Star Wars universes have the films as primary canon and novels/comics as secondary so if there's a conflict the films take precedence.

      *like Anrakyr The Traveller STANDING UP THROUGH A CARNIFEX SO IT'S KILLED BY HIS HEAD-CREST AS HE EMERGES OUT OF THE TOP. Absolute drivel, thank the gods that it's not the driving force behind the franchise lol

  3. I love the pose they have Corax in; mid-kill, very dynamic looking. The base is awesome too, as always with the Primarchs. And the wings are pretty impressive, Im kind of surprised they look that good tbh.
    Im not sold on the head though.

  6. I like the model, but it's kinda odd they built the model specifically in a jump pack style pose. I wonder what they want people who use Corax in later heresy games to do after he loses his wings and is forced to foot slog with a heavy bolter.

    1. After Isvaan he gets it repaired?

    2. Same torso and legs pose with a heavy bolter could be cool

    3. It's already been said that there will be alternate versions of the Primarchs further on including the Daemon versions etc so I wouldn't dismiss the possibility of an alternate wingless heavy bolter wielding Corax a few years down the line...
