After many years and requests, Forge World the makers of such awesome models as the Warhound Titan an Tyranid Heirophant has finally decided to appease their fans. To fans of Warhammer 40k, the Horus Heresy is near and dear to many. The stories of the Warmaster Horus’ assault on the Imperial Palace and his epic battle with the Emperor of Mankind is legendary. Now you can (if you mortgage your home), fight those battles out at your local gaming store.
Here are some of the new pictures to come out of Forge World.
Here are your standard tactical marines in Mark II Power Armour, quite the Gothic feel to them.
Life wouldn't be complete without the matching iconography here we have shoulder pads for the Death Guard, Sons of Horus, Emperors Children, and World Eaters.
See here is why I like the good ole days, the Space Marine Fellhammer. Rolling across today's battlefield the largest tank you might happen to see is the Baneblade or one of its siblings, but during the Heresy the Legion had these bad boys at their disposal. And yes those are Quad Lascannons on the side - as for the turret - I would guess it to be some type of destroyer weapon.
Any fan of the Dark Angel Ravenwing is going to just love these, now Sammael can have a proper jetbike escort.
Here we have one of my favorites, I have not been a fan of the early armour styles but I have to say the Heresy Era Cataphractii Terminators look amazing and I love the fact that they can carry the twin linked Autocannon.
And here is the coup de grace, the ultimate warrior and someone you definitely would not want to meet in a dark alley. Angron the Red Angel, Primarch of the World Eaters Legion. For those of you who are wondering - yes that marine has a stump for a right arm. A statline is supposedly coming in Betrayal, the first book of the Horus Heresy series. Bring your entire army and I will bring Angron and we will throw down. The nice part about this awesome model is that you can lift Angron right out for table top use.
Like I said before to field an entire period army you are going to have to basically sell some blood and mortgage your house because it isn't going to come cheap. To even get started with the first book in the series Betrayal is going to run you around $115. I have given Forge World quite a bit of business over the past couple years and I think that they are going to be seeing even more from me. Betrayal will have the rulesets for the some of the legions, whether or not I continue on to build a Heresy army will depend on how well they mesh with the current rules and codex'.
Let us know what you think of Forge World's first Horus Heresy offerings.
