Forge World announces new releases including Scarab Swarms and Ork Conversion kits.

From their website:

Canoptek Scarabs can be found scurrying hither and yon through the vast and dusty halls of a Necron Tomb World. Seemingly mimicking the behaviour of organic invertebrates, a Scarab’s only purpose is to break matter down into energy. On the battlefield, swarms of Scarabs are unleashed both as expendable assault waves and to latch on to and destroy enemy armoured vehicles.

The Necron Scarab Swarms kit, contains 12 finely detailed multi-part resin Canoptek Scarabs – enough models to build three swarm bases. Models designed by Will Hayes. This kit is available to pre-order now for despatch from the 10th February.

Ork Mekboyz are unable to resist tinkering with their mechanical creations, in particular bolting on extra weapons until their vehicles bristle with gun barrels. It is debatable if this is to provide additional firepower or simply to give the Ork passengers something to shoot wildly into the air as the trukk, trakk or wagon careens toward the enemy.

The Ork Vehicle Weapons Set contains four weapons: a big shoota, twin-linked big shoota, rokkit launcha and skorcha. Models designed by Will Hayes. Each weapon is supplied with a set of optional gunner arms, and can be mounted on any of the vehicles in our Ork range, as well as on the plastic kits available from Games Workshop. This set is available to pre-order now for despatch from the 10th February.

    What a rip off, the 3 bases of Scarabs(you can stretch it to 3 with an extra base) is nearly the same cost as a box of Necron warriors which includes enough Scarabs to make 3 bases. WTF Forgeworld? You made excellent Ripper Bases for Tyranids then totally failed with these stretch Scarab wanna-bes? No thank you!

    $28? Seriously? I’ll stick with the puppet wars “cyber beetles” for $6.70
