Contekar Terminators and Phyrr Cats are up for Pre-Order on Forge World Now

Forge World has two new pre-orders up now on the site. You can add to your Horus Heresy Night Lord forces as well as expand your Escher gangs. See what you can get now!

Elite shock troops adept at sowing panic and dismay with their arrival, the Contekar Elites’ talents for steadfast prosecution of war was much vaunted amongst the Legions during the Great Crusade. Contekar Terminators are butchers and murderers of a high order, to be called upon when the VIII Legion wished to bring more than terror but utter and abject despair and destruction upon a foe, to bur their armies, infrastructure and agriculture, and to topple the foundations of their civilization.

You can order them now for $98.

Escher gangers are attracted to the big cats of Phyrr in particular for their exotic looks and killer instincts. Such beasts are rare in the extreme, and smuggling them planetside to Hive Primus is no mean feat, so they are an incredibly rare sight as pets even amongst the hierarchy of House Escher. Yet seen they are, and when the opportunity to acquire such a beast, or even better, a mating pair, arises, Escher gang queens will go to any lengths to secure them.

You can get two Phyrr cats for $33.
