Forge World have added a new Imperial Guard vehicle kit and two sheets of Badab War decal sheets to their website.

Crassus Armoured Transport

From their announcement:

Imperial Guard Crassus Armoured Transport
The Crassus Armoured Transport is not a standard frontline Imperial Guard vehicle, but its armoured bulk and transport capacity make it extremely capable. Based upon the Macharius Heavy Tank chassis, the Crassus is powerful, reliable, and while ponderous, it can transport an entire infantry platoon of up to 31 Guardsmen, while its hull bristles with potent heavy weapons sponsons.

This immense armoured carrier is named after one of Lord Solar Macharius’ greatest generals, Borgen Crassus, who remained steadfastly loyal to the Imperium throughout the grim and bloody Macharian Heresy that followed the Lord Solar’s death.

The vehicle can be retrofitted with additional weapons to fulfil other battlefield roles as required, and thousands of these vast transports were drafted into the 6th Cadian Armoured’s ranks during the fighting on Betalis III.

The Crassus Armoured Transport is a massive full resin kit designed by Daren Parrwood, featuring a fully detailed interior, and it is available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 26th April. Forge World’s Book Design team have provided these experimental rules (PDF link), taken from Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara, to allow any Imperial Guard army to field this lumbering behemoth.

Badab War Decal Sheets
Forge World’s Paul Rudge has recently completed two new decal sheets for the Minotaurs and Red Scorpions Space Marine Chapters. Each sheet is packed with over 1,000 individual squad designations and markings, blazons, aphorisms and squad numbers as well as larger vehicle markings and catechisms. The Minotaurs Decal Sheet also features three sizes of trim suitable for use on banners or cloak hems and large heraldic chevrons and lettering for use on vehicles.

Both the Minotaurs decal sheet and the Red Scorpions decal sheet are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 26th April.

    Wow – loving this! Might just have to restart work on my Guard army! As usual, I’ve found myself far more impressed by Forgeworld’s releases this year than GW’s ever more toylike and outlandish creations. Keep up the good work FW! ^__^

  • I like this! I agree with Haibane FW does better work than GW in the design department…
