I was lucky enough to get to Games Day UK today and attend the Forge World seminar AND get the Horus Heresy Book One ‘Betrayal’ AND get an Angron model! 🙂
Now that I’ve got that out there, here’s what I found out….
The next Imperial Armour book will be out before Christmas and is a 6th Edition Imperial Guard update volume. It will feature ALL the Imperial Guard 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 units include: A Necron Pylon, Necron Tesseract Arc and Necron Night Shroud Bomber and there is a Imperial Lightning Fighter MK2.
There will also be a Dark Eldar Imperial Armour book at some point in the future.
Welcome to the blog if this is where you skipped down to! 🙂 I don’t blame you.
Here’s the juice:
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 and Justaerin Terminators. As you may have seen, Simon Egan is sculpting Abaddon and Loken! (I know!)
There are no plans yet for Torgaddon and Little Horus although it was talked about.
We will also see ‘Thallax’ marines – these are somewhere between a Terminator and a Dreadnought. That’s all we were told about them.
Horus Heresy Book 2: Massacre
Book 2 is Isstvan 5 Part One!
It will feature Mechanicum models, Word Bearers, Night Lords, Salamanders and Iron Hands! Very exciting stuff!
In the Q+A session we were told that there is a new titan variant coming (possible a Warlord!) and that there will be a Stormbird variant coming as well! We will also see Daemon primarchs at some point later down the line and that there would probably be a book covering the Mechanicum battle of Mars!
The next Primarch model will be Fulgrim! 😀
