This week’s new pre-orders from Forge World features two games and a bit of a surprise.
Necromunda sees the release of two new Hired Guns. Apollus Kage was a member of the Orlock gang the Sump Dogs. Krotus Hark, on the other hand, is a former Goliath who was born with that most dangerous of gifts – intelligence.
Both are now available for $41. Apollus Kage has also been designed so that his head, arms, and backpack are compatible with a large proportion of Necromunda miniatures for conversions.
The Lord of the Rings sees two releases this week.
Personalities of the Shire – Will Whitfoot and Baldo Tulpenny are available now for $21. Rally your Hobbits to fight with jolly old Will Whitfoot, the former mayor of Hobbiton. Meanwhile, take advantage of Baldo Tulpenny’s skills as a champion stone skimmer to attack Ruffians from afar or have him set a series of traps to slow down Sharkey’s men.
You can also ruff up some Hobbits with the Ruffian Leaders. They’re available for $33.
Ruffian Chief Sid Briarthorn, enforcer Rowan Thistlewood and spy Bill Ferny are here to take any unruly Hobbits off to the lockholes. Sid encourages your Ruffians to fight even harder, you can burn down Hobbit-holes with Rowan and use Bill’s information to keep track of the Shire Folk. You can also use all three to bind any pesky Hobbits in chains, leaving them helpless.
Forge World has three new items out this week, two for Blood Bowl and one for Necromunda.
It may not be cute – but when you can tear a ganger’s arm off in a single bite, you don’t need to be. Add the Goliath Sumpkroc, a scaly companion to your Goliath Gang today. The figure comes with 6 components and a base and you can find the rules for it in Gang War 3. It retails for $24.
The Swift Twins have it all, the looks, charisma, awesome outfits, and skill. The Star Players can be used on High Elf, Dark Elf, and Elven Union Blood Bowl teams but you have to hire them as a pair. The kit is 12 components and supplied with bases. The rules for the Swift Twins can be found in the Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac. They retail for $38.
The Elfheim Eagles have some moves and so do their cheerleaders. The 4 figure cheerleading squad can be yours for $35 and rules can be found in the Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac.
Dominate for the dynasties with the Necron Seraptek, a Knight-sized Necron construct, available with your choice of deadly and unique weaponry from Forge World for use in your games of Warhammer 40K.
You have options as to the armaments for this weapon of destruction and you can pre-order it now.
With Gang War 3 and House Van Saar being released for pre-order by Games Workshop this weekend, Forge World is getting in on Necromunda with numerous releases that you can pre-order now.
You can order Slate Merdena and his Cyber Mastiff Macula, an Orlock Hired Gun for £20. Slate controls a dozen Hive Primus Ash Gates in the name of House Orlock, and has earned a reputation for being nigh unkillable – having survived bullets to the chest, blades between the shoulders and even being thrown under the wheels of his own rig. Often the mere sight of Slate and his faithful Cyber Mastiff Macula, are enough to send enemies running, lest the end their days as a mile-marker on the Spider Points, like so many before them.
The model comes in 8 components as a multi-part resin kit.
Eyros Slagmyst is a bounty hunter who you can order for £18. Eyros was once an underhive dome-rigger from Cogtown, one of the sweating, emaciated souls responsible for repairing the rusting pipe networks that fed the dismal settlement.
This model is a 4 component multi-resin kit.
Belladonna is one of seven daughters of Orlena Escher. She stalks the underhive as a Bounty Hunter for hire, seeking her husband’s killers and the identity of the mysterious faction that sundered the alliance of Escher and Ran Lo before the ink was even dry on the marriage contract. The figure is a 4 part resin kit and you can order it for £18.
The Squats return with Grendl Grendlsen! Grendl is famed for protecting his charges from their rivals and subsequently claiming the bounty on the would-be assassins’ heads, and so far there has been no shortage of foolhardy rivals eager to test his skills, and his infamous hammer. This 4 component resin kit costs £18.
The Goliaths get two weapon sets, each £16. You’ll be able to better equip your gang with firepower using these new kits.
Forge World has revealed a painted version of the House Orlock Hired Gun, Slate Merdena and Macula his cyber-enhanced mastiff for Necromunda.
While full rules for them will be out in the future, Gang War III has rules for cyber-mastiffs!

Keep your Solar Auxilia and Imperialis Militia safe with this rugged transport, perfect for delivering your short-ranged weapons to the heart of the foe.
The Aurox Armoured Transport is a utilitarian transport vehicle, the Aurox is little more than a cube of extremely dense armour with an enormous tank track either side – each surface of the hull has at least 1 set of doors, used for the rapid disgorgement of the up to 10 models carried within. At the front is a driver’s hatch with a sensor array beside it, and a mounted heavy stubber at the top, with hatch behind. A large exhaust pokes out from either side, and yet another hatch (there are actually 6 in total, making this a rather hatchsome transport) makes up the bulk of the rear.
The Aurox Armoured Transport comes as 21 components and retails for £58.
When it comes to subterfuge, no Primarch is better than Alpharius. Now the Alpha Legion Primarch is coming our of the shadows with a new model from Forge World.
Unlike the other Primarch models, Alpharius is shown with his helmet on. You never know, he could be in another unit while a random legionnaire dons this armor.
The figure will be on sale soon but you’ll be able to get him first at Warhammer Fest 2018.
The Terrax Pattern Termite Drill is now available for pre-order from Forge World. Priced at £75, the specialized transport vehicle, the Termite is capable of deploying a full squad of warriors onto the battlefield whilst bypassing enemy fortifications and sentries.
The Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill comes as 39 components. Rules for fielding this model in games of Warhammer 40,000 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.
With might to match a Primarch, weapons to slay even the deadliest of foes and nearly peerless skill in command, this legendary hero is renowned for good reason – and now, Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes can be yours to own.
This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Constantin Valdor. This is an exceptionally detailed model, which painters will delight in tackling – there’s barely any flat surface at all on his ornate power armour, with skulls, eagles and lightning bolts modelled finely on every panel. Chains, furs and strips of cloth feature heavily, with even the greaves featuring sculpted buckles and faces. Over the left shoulder is mounted the head of some great horned creature, while a heavily augmented bird sits on the left. Constantin’s head is bare, with cabling running from his jaw and temples, connecting him to his power armour. He wields the Apollonian spear, which incorporates a bolter and a power blade capable of reducing anything it touches to its component molecules. The model’s base is made up of 3 components – a 40mm round base featuring rocks, ruins and remains upon which Constantin is posed, a 60mm scenic round base providing a backdrop, and a further outcrop which is used to lock the model into the latter.
Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes comes as 17 components. Rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno.
You can pre-order him now for £60.
