40K: Horus Heresy Rumors, Angron Spotted!

So angry!!

This comes by way of BoLS, who aggregated it from Warseer.

Ok here’s the master rumor roundup for Forgeworld’s Horus Heresy books.

Rumor mongers include Harry and RogueStar from Warseer.


Three books planned – SO FAR. Could be others.

Primarchs and rules for the legions will be covered.

Volume 1 – “BETRAYAL”

Covers the opening of the Heresy, the Dropsite Massacre, the Traitor Legions, space combat in Istvaan, and Primarch models for Angron, Mortarion and Fulgrim.

Legions shown in artwork are:

Emperor’s Children

Death Guard

Sons of Horus

World Eaters

Three Primarch’s planned are:




Angron’s miniature is described as:

He’s advancing, from left to right. Two chainaxes, one in each hand. Right hand going for an overhead chop, the other drawn back against his torso for a sideswipe (because it’s Angron, he can’t possibly be blocking!). High collar. White shoulder plates. Dreadlock-like neural-implants. Very angry. Link-chain cloak with a few skulls attached…

He is a good bit bigger than a ‘normal’ marine.

Also, murmurs of a Fellblade…

Out in time for Gamesday UK 2012

Described as a “BIG Book”

So we are beyond excited for this! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those Primarchs! Night Haunter is definitely the most anticipated for me personally as I have always really liked the Night Lords fluff the most (particularly after the excellent trilogy that the BL just put out). But Angron first? Way to start with a bang, FW! Can’t wait to see it!

What Primarchs are you all most excited for?

    wait a minute….Jack Nicholson is Angron? It all makes sense now!

    Interesting that they chose Angron, first. I’d imagine it has something to do with his Daemon Prince rules and retconning those right away. 🙂

    I’m excited for Dorn. I’m also curious to see if Ferrus Manus will have his ‘battle wrench’ when they get to him. I tell ya, that’s why he lost. He brought a wrench to a sword fight.

      Yeah, he is definitely one of the cooler Primarchs. I would love to see his model, for sure!

    I’m really hoping for some BL characters; Garviel Loken, Argel Tal and Garro etc!

      Me too! At least the stats. We can make the models if needs be.
