More Horus Heresy Releases from Forgeworld

We all have seen the previews of both of these models at Forgeworld Open Days, and now they finally have released them...

New Javelin Attack Speeder

Larger and more heavily armoured than the common pattern of Land Speeder, the Javelin Attack Speeder is a nigh-irreplaceable relic of a bygone age 
of technological mastery. Gravitic nullification plates, the secret of whose production and maintenance have long since been lost, allow the Javelin to 
mount an array of heavy weaponry more akin to a heavy tank destroyer than a nimble Land Speeder, allowing them to make pinpoint strikes on enemy 
armour or infantry with devastating lascannon or missile barrage. Those Chapters of Space Marines whose histories stretch back into the grim days of the 
Imperium’s founding may, if they are fortunate, still possess a few justly revered Javelins within the sanctified depths of their armouries.

Its a decent sized model!

Whirlwind Scorpius

An ancient variant of the more common Whirlwind missile tank, the heavily armoured Scorpius was designed with a single purpose in mind – the 
destruction of heavily armoured infantry. The Scorpius variant replaces the Whirlwind’s multiple missile launcher system with the intricate drum-fed 
scorpius launcher, whose implosive warheads are devastating to armoured infantry and light vehicles. The Whirlwind Scorpius’ origins lie in the dark days 
of the Horus Heresy and, in more recent times, it has become an all but forgotten relic amongst some Chapters as the ability to manufacture its complex 
munitions has become a forgotten art, but for other Chapters it still remains a potent weapon of war.

 So form all this, the next book is just around the corner. Judging by all the new paint jobs Iron Hands and Night Lords will feature prominently.
