So…. Games Day is done and dusted.
Here’s the gossip.. and it’s pretty much all Forge World.
Warhammer Forge will shortly be finishing and releasing a Dreadsaurian model. I think this is part of the Monstrous Arcanum book but I could be wrong. It’s a great model though and really big! I didn’t get a picture but others did so I’m sure they’re out there.
The first Codex Space Marine supplement is called ‘Sentinels of Terra’ and not the White Scars as had been mooted on many forums. There is an Imperial Fist on the cover, so make of that what you will.
The Tau R’Varna Battlesuit will be coming soon, this is a Riptide variant which you’ve probably seen as it was available on pre-release at Games Day from Forge World.
The best news for all Marine players is that Forge World have rewritten Imperial Armour 2 and added all the new and current Space Marine vehicles and rules! This is at the printers now and we were told that the aim is to release it before Christmas if they can.
The next book is Extermination and this will be released in late Spring, probably in line with the Horus Heresy weekender. The next 3 books after this – they will be released in trilogies – will be Prospero, Signus and Calth.
Prospero will feature Space Wolves, Thousand Sons, Sisters of Silence, Custodes and Imperial Army.
Signus will feature Blood Angels and Daemons but interestingly, Dark Angels as well.
Calth with feature Word Bearers, Ultramarines, Traitor Imperial Army and will expand the Titan Legions.
There was no mention of the battles on Mars. I’m really hoping that’s something that will get it’s own book.
New models coming soon include:
Sicaran Venator – Sicaran chassis but has a Neutron laser.
Mechanicum Thralls – Rank and file troops
Mechanicum Myrmidons – Heavy support troops, bigger than Terminators.
Mk2B Land Raider Achilles
Space Marine Legion Basilisk.

Iron Hands – Medusan Immortals
Night Lords – Night Raptor Marines
Death Guard – Grave Warden Terminators (these looked amazing!)

Now, we only saw a work-in-progress of Horus (picture below) but he looks very good. Tony Cottrell said the aim is at least 3 Primarchs a year. Some will have multiple variants as they change.
After a long chat with Alan Bligh, I was told that he’s working on ‘Legion Zero’. This is a bridge between the Thunder Warriors and the Astartes. Now, I couldn’t prise anything else from him but keep an eye out for more on this in the future.
Also, the Dark Angels have SIX wings. The Ravenwing is one and the Deathwing don’t exist in the Heresy….. so that’s a few to fill!
Thanks for reading,
