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.

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.

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.
