Forge World has a whole bunch of new releases posted on their website that you can order. They’ll be sent out next week. For those that want a bit of punch, they’ve got both their Vindicator Laser Destroyer tank as well as their Deredeo Dreadnaught Hellfire Plasma Cannonade (say that 3x fast). Then, for those that want their marines to be a bit different from the standard chapters and instead want something with a little more of an avian theme, they’ve got all sorts of upgrade pieces for Raven Guard figures. There’s new helmets, and several series worth of shoulder pads.
From the announcement:
Tearing through the armour plating of enemy vehicles, the Vindicator laser destroyer array is a potent weapon of destruction. First retrofitted into the heavily armoured Deimos pattern Vindicator chassis during the dark days of the Horus Heresy, several Legions took to fielding this variant as a mainline battle tank, proving itself on many occasions as an able tank hunter. After millennia of brutal warfare across the galaxy, it is still in favour within the Space Marine Chapters, the Vindicator Laser Destructor continuing to bring retribution to the enemies of Mankind.
The Deimos Vindicator Laser Destroyer may be fielded in Space Marine Legion armies in Horus Heresy games and also in Space Marine armies in standard games of Warhammer 40,000.
Skilled infiltrators and masters of reconnaissance, the Raven Guard Legion was the hidden hand of the Emperor from even before the time of the Great Crusade, hunting down any who would not bend the knee to the Imperial truth. Striking from the shadows, the XIXth Legion is ever prepared for enacting rapid, overwhelming assaults from unexpected quarters against the enemies of Mankind.
Available to pre-order from today are six upgrade kits for the Raven Guard Legion:
•Raven Guard Mk VI Heads
•Raven Guard Mk VI Torsos
•Raven Guard Mk II Shoulder Pads
•Raven Guard Mk III Shoulder Pads
•Raven Guard Mk IV Shoulder Pads
•Raven Guard Mk VI Shoulder Pads
Also new today is the Space Marine Mk VI Command Upgrade set:
First trialled by elements of the Raven Guard Legion during the closing days of the Great Crusade, Mk VI battle plate was later known as ‘Corvus’ armour in honour of their Primarch, Corvus Corax. The addition of enhanced sensors provides those warriors of the Legiones Astartes who wear Mk VI armour into battle with considerable advantages over older armour patterns.
This set contains 2 Legion Vexillas, 2 Legion Nuncio-voxes, 2 Legion Nuncio-vox operator helmets and 2 Legion Sergeant helmets for Space Marines equipped with Mk VI Corvus armour.
A development of existing plasma-based weapons technology, the Hellfire Plasma Cannonade was one of a number of weapons first tested using the Deredeo pattern chassis. It sacrifices the range of the Deredeo’s standard armaments for increased armour penetration and allows for a higher rate of fire than many other plasma weapons.
