40K News: Horus Heresy Pictures, New Releases, and Pure Win!


Awesomeness inbound! Thanks to Warseer, Faeit and BoLS for these.

Things are starting to roll in, and I have a large number of pics that are said to be on their way shortly. In advance, I want to thank the people in advance that are sending or linking us pics from the event.

The following are dug up from various places. Enjoy!

From the forge world seminar 

IA 12 is nearly done all the necrons good dream of is in there, confirmed that each xenos race will gets its own book. Looking to add to the existing range rather than cover non codex races.

Sorry squats.

Horus Heresy, will be probably be doing an Emperor model.


Digital products will NOT be limited to apple products they where just the first.

Android and windows digital media products will follow.

A new Empire FAQ and errata is soon to be released its gone for translation.

Black fire pass art work shows a warhammer squiggoth with howdah.

ACE01 over on Bols

Angron seems to be around 400 points according to ACE01 over at BOLS.

Not had much chance to look through it yet, but the Primarchs seem powerful but killable. If you’re thinking the invincible beings described by the novels, this is not for you. Angron is akin to Mephison on roids, V.High WS and S, High T, W, I, A. Sv 3+4++

Play wise, it’s designed 30k vs 30k, with the above force org (unless under 1500), and primarch/super heavy type units (Lords of Battle) above 2k only.

There are 6 Isstvaan III battle missions, using the 6e ruleset and adding a couple of conditions.

Designed for 1500-2500/3000 point games.


Lots of old school weapon options in here, along with some new squad types to make use of them.

Anyone wondering about Cataphractii Armour – 2+4++ swapping relentless for S&P


Cow – Horus, Angron, Fulgrim and Mortarion are IN.

PS. Horuswing anyone…

Art Is Resistance over at Warseer

Well I’m in – design studio is next to GD which I’ve entered.

(On GW Eldar Avatar)The pose is dynamic, has a wailing doom in sword form, knees bent. Face is a lot more expressive.

Not as big as the FW version, but a little… Chunkier?

Of course it could be just a test piece?

Not 40k BUT – Plastic Blood Dragon Knights?

Forgeworld Abaddon!

Legion specific Contemptor Dreads

Legion specific Marines!

Emperors children assault squad, auto cannon squad, command squad….

Same for death guard, sons of horus and world eaters.

Oh, and Loken….

Will post what pics I have later today.

Lightning two spotted

Lightning two is a new imperial variant – large turbine in place of the nose.

HH book is lovely – full army

Lists for 4 legions and there’s also mechanicus units in there….

Best book FW have ever done.

More Games Day UK information is happening as we speak. Now we have a couple pics of models we just saw here in the prevous post, but from new angles, and of course some new things I had not seen yet…. Necrons. Also the next Horus Heresy book will be called “Massacre”.

Here is the latest from Neil at Tyken’s Rift, and a link below.

Hi Natfka,

I spent a long time speaking to Forge World designers and staff today and I have some info to share.

All this is 100% accurate (unless they change their minds!). 🙂

Warhammer Forge:

Next book will be “Battle of the Blackfire Pass”

There will be some Empire command figures and some Goblin command figures.

Warhammer 40K:

Next Imperial Armour book will be out before christmas and is a 6th Edition Imperial Guard update volume – features ALL IG vehicles that Forge World currently sell.

Imperial Armour 12 is called ‘The Fall of Orpheus” and features Necrons, Death Corps of Krieg and Minatour Space Marines.

New Necron Pylon, Necron Tesseract Arc and Necron Night Shroud Bomber are incoming as is the Lightning Fighter MK2.

There will be a Dark Eldar Imperial armour book at some point in the future.

Horus Heresy:

For ‘Betrayal’ we will see Legion Heavy Weapon squads, Death Guard and World Eater Contemptor pattern Dreadnoughts as well as special weapon and close combat weapon upgrade packs!

There are Legion Champion models as well as Justaerin Terminators. As you have seen, Simon Egan is sculpting Abaddon and Loken! No plans yet for Torgaddon and Little Horus.

We will also see ‘Thallax’ marines – these are somewhere between a Terminator and a Dreadnought. That’s all we were told about them.

Book 2 will be Istvaan 5 part one and is called ‘Massacre’. It will feature Mechanicum models, Word Bearers, Night Lords, Salamanders and Iron Hands!!

There will be a new Titan variant – Warlord was mentioned! – and there will be a Stormbird of some kind. They were vague about this but said discussions had taken place.

We will also see daemon primarchs further down the line! 🙂

Oh…  and one last thing – the next Primarch will be Fulgrim!!
