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.

After a weekend off, Games Workshop and Forge World are back with two new releases in the coming weekend. One is a pre-order and the other can be bought at shops.

Gorzag Gitstompa and Nikkit are an update to a classic Ork figure and based on the cover art to Gorkamorka. Gorzag Gitstompa is perfect to lead the Boyz as an Ork Nob and Nikkit and due its duty as an Ammo Runt. Or, they’re just some fun models to paint!

The models will be available at Games Workshop and Warhammer stores starting December 26 and then will be available on the webstore after for those who don’t have access to a store.

After a tease a while ago, Saul Tarvitz will be available for pre-order from Forge World. The Captain of the Emperor’s Children 10th Company remained loyal to the Emperor even as most of his Legion joined Horus in his betrayal. He flew down to Isstvan III to warn the Loyalists of the impending attack by the Traitors and saved countless lives.

You’ll be able to pre-order him this coming Friday and add him to your games of The Horus Heresy.

Qin Xa Joins the Hunt in the Horus Heresy

Forge World is back and up for pre-order is Qin Xa. The Master of the Keshig was frequently described by his Primarch as one of the most formidable warriors of the Legion. This new resin model is highly detailed and comes with a choice of helmeted or bare heads. Unlike many of his White Scars brothers, Qin Xa would march to war clad in a suit of Tartaros-pattern Terminator armor. Armed with a pair of matched Dao blades, known as the Tails of the Dragon, Qin Xa can cut through any traitor that gets in his way. And the final bit of details is his standing atop the ruins of a Contemptor Dreadnought. Qin Xa looks every bit the master of the hunt.

Qin Xa retails for $73 and is available for pre-order now.

Saul Tarvitz Comes to The Horus Heresy

Saul Tarvitz goes back to 1988’s Space Marine rulebook as one of the first-ever names Horus Heresy Space Marines. The character went on to appear in Black Library’s Horus Heresy novels making him even more popular.

You’ll soon be able to bring this legendary character to your games of Horus Heresy.

Aurox Armoured Transport Available for Pre-Order from Forge World

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.

I Am Alpharius. Forge World Reveals the New Model

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.

Death From Below! Termite Assault Drill is Now Available from Forge World

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.

Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes is Now Available from Forge World

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.

Pre-Order Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists and Imperial Fists Legion Templar Brethren Today from Forge World

A being of thunderous zeal and stone made manifest, is how many described the Primarch of the VIIth Legion. The zeal was the fire of a son who believed in his father’s dream for the Imperium without reservation and without question. To Rogal Dorn there was no higher purpose to the existence of the Legiones Astartes than the unification of Mankind, and the illumination of the Imperium’s ideals. This idealism drove Dorn and his Legion ever onwards, never compromising, never stinting in any aspect of duty. The stone in his soul was his ability to bear whatever his father needed of him, an unyielding nature, which made him both a master of defence in war, and an indomitable fighter on the attack.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Rogal Dorn. Rogal Dorn is supplied as 24 parts, and comes with 2 bases – the first is a 40mm gaming base, which slots snugly into a 105x70mm oval diorama base. The diorama base features a series of concrete steps, with the body of a deceased Space Marine (and parts of another) lying at Dorn’s triumphant feet.

Rules for Rogal Dorn can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions.

Get it now for £75.
