Mantic Games previews the new Drakkarim with rocket launcher and flame thrower.

From their preview:

So we’re going to be having a bit of a February Fortnight, with a Forge Father special all this week – for all you Kings of War fanatics we’ll have some Goblins and some Twilight Kin to get your teeth into next week!

This week we’re going to be going through all the fantastic new conversion parts you get with the new Drakkarim and Steel Warrior with Tactical Upgrade boxes and a load of other Forge Father related stuff. Naturally, we’re going to start with the most explosive stuff before we get a fully painted unit at the end of the week… so here we go with the Mjolnir Rocket Launcher and Dragon’s Breath special weapons!

Comments below guys, and don’t forget to check back later for more blog goodness!

PS – some of you have noticed that we’ve put the pre-orders up for the core sets . Well, we’ll also be doing a couple of bags of loose components as well for those of you who want to upgrade the plastic sprues you’ve already got. Keep watching the site over the next couple of days.

    C’mon guys
    Please leave poor Mr Devers created names free from exploitation.
    Killzone only used the Helghast because Joe Dever was one of the creative writers for the game… Drakkarim should be left as Lone Wolf property.

    Just my two cents

      I knew that name sounded familiar! At least they’re getting names from good sources.

  • Black Nexus

    ‘cept it’s derived from Drakkar, which is the name of the Forge Fathers battle tank and links to their Norse background…

    Am I the only one that cares more that they’re ugly and less about the name?

    • blkdymnd

      I dont think they’re ugly. I’m not in love with the flamer, but the missle launcher is great looking

  • Baron Trapdoor

    FWIW Drakkar is also a name from the Lone Wolf IP…

  • keltheos

    Guy Laroche would approve of that name.

  • Black Nexus
