FW Latest Horus Heresy Releases - The Fellglaive is here

I seem to have lost my email but Forgeworld have released a bunch of stuff today
Everyones favourite Heresy Superheavy, the Fellglaive

The Glaive Super-heavy Special Weapons Tank is a variant of the Fellblade. Armed with a Volkite Carronade, it is designed to destroy xenos beasts and incinerate enemy light vehicles at a single sweep. 

While the Glaive has been issued to all eighteen Legiones Astartes in limited quantities, the Salamanders and Dark Angels have long been noted to field Glaives as a matter of course; the XVIIIth Legion’s artifice is more than sufficient to maintain and replicate the arcane Volkite technology, while the provenance and honour of the Ist Legion means that their war matériel and weaponry are ancient indeed. 

The Legion Glaive, designed by Stuart Williamson, is a multi-part resin and plastic kit that is packed with detail. It is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 28th June and experimental rules to field this powerful super-heavy as part of a Space Marine Legion army are available to download here.

New Minotaurs Chapter Conemptor Dread "Hecaton Aiakos"

The ornate Contemptor pattern Dreadnought known as Hecaton Aiakos has been identified by his distinctive heraldry in a number of the Minotaurs Chapter’s campaigns, spanning several centuries. In the Bifrost Uprising, Aiakos gained notoriety when he was mistakenly fired upon by a detachment of Bifrost Huscarls under the brevet command of Brother-Sergeant Augustine of the Viper Legion Space Marines. Aiakos rampaged through the Imperial lines in retaliation, killing thirty-seven Huscarls and Augustine himself, and ripped apart a Leman Russ which had attempted to stop him. His deadly assault was only halted after he received a countermand vox order from his Chapter Master in orbit. 

Hecaton Aiakos, designed by Israel Gonzalez, is a multi-part resin kit packed with intricate detail, and is available to order now for immediate despatch. The model comes supplied with a plasma cannon and an ornate Dreadnought close combat weapon, and is also fully compatible with Forge World’s other Contemptor Dreadnought weapons. Rules for fielding this noted character can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus.

New Tartaros Pattern Terminators

The Tartaros pattern is arguably the most advanced form of Tactical Dreadnought Armour, and shares many systems with the MkIV ‘Maximus’ power armour. It provides greater mobility for its wearer than other patterns, with no loss in durability or protection; this has led to great demand for the Tartaros pattern and means that it is particularly commonplace amongst the Legiones Astartes.

Designed by Will Hayes, the Legion Tartaros Pattern Terminators set contains five multi-part resin models, each featuring different iconography and armour details.

  1. The tank is like the Stormblade but without the missiles!
