New Necromunda, 40k Releases Available To Order From Forge World
It was kinda hard to decide which of these two I wanted to feature. On one hand, you’ve got Necromunda, which I know has been a fan favorite for quite some time and is about to hit gaming tables again. On the other, you’ve got a superheavy tank, which is just below giant robots on my own personal scale of “cool.” But I went with the new Necromunda figure. But really, the tank looks pretty awesome, too (IMO).
Gor is a Beastman – a mutant of the strain Homo Sapiens Variatus – and as such is possessed of horribly animalistic features and an unpredictable and violent temperament. These characteristics serve to make Gor a figure of dread in the underhive, but equally, they make him a target for every raving zealot he encounters. As a sanctioned Bounty Hunter, Gor is entitled, in theory at least, to go wherever he will in pursuit of his targets; in reality, he has often found himself the quarry, though so far none have bested him.
The Astraeus is a super-heavy tank, similar in form to the smaller Repulsor transport in use by the newly created Primaris Space Marines. It mounts a formidable array of weapons, designed around a pair of immense macro-accelerator cannon. Providing a stable firing platform for these temperamental weapons are banks of enhanced repulsor plates, allowing the inexorable advance of the Astraeus to continue unhindered by hostile terrain or the vain defiance of the foe, while its layered void shields can shrug off even the most devastating weapon strikes. The Astraeus is a symbol of the Imperium’s might, unbowed by the dawning of a bloody new millennium and unbroken by the onslaught of its foes.
