Games Workshop Previews Maloghurst for 40k

Games Workshop is coming out with new models based on The Horus Heresy (a kinda turbulent time for the grimdark future). In the first of these articles, they're taking a look at Maloghurst.

From the article:

Welcome to Legion Dispatch, the first in a regular series of articles where we’ll show off new models for The Horus Heresy. First up, we have Maloghurst the Twisted, the infamous equerry to Horus himself.

Maloghurst was a veteran legionary that served the Luna Wolves and Sons of Horus throughout numerous campaigns during the Great Crusade, earning the nickname ‘Twisted’ due to his formidable mind. The title took on a cruel double meaning when enemy forces shot down his transport during the pacification of planet 63-19, and he was left badly injured.* Afterwards, Horus sent a communique to the entire Legion banning the usage of unkind nicknames.**

When the heresy kicked off, Maloghurst proved himself to be one of the Warmaster’s closest confidants.*** While his injuries meant that he could no longer fulfil the role of frontline warrior, he was awarded the honour of carrying Horus’ personal icon.****
