Knights Errant

Head Variants

One of the one click packages on offer. 

The above package comes with some exclusive artwork. Are GW finally learning that offering incentives to bulk purchase might actually be worth something to customers???

The additional transfer sheet that is available. It represents more households than the sheet that comes with the kit itself

For all the guff on this enticing new model, go have a look here

Over at Black Library we get this new hardcover Visions of Heresy Book. It looks to be the same book that was released late last year as a limited edition leather bound book, although this time it is just a hard cover. At the price of a codex and 416 pages this looks to be an excellent buy.

From the ashes of the Great Crusade, treachery was born. Always first among the superhuman primarchs, the newly dubbed Warmaster Horus turned his back upon the Emperor and embraced the dark powers of Chaos. With fully half the military might of the fledgling Imperium at his command, he set his sights upon the throne of Holy Terra and waged a war which would divide the galaxy forever...
Visions of war, visions of darkness, of treachery and death – all of this and more is contained within this heretical volume. Iconic depictions of the Space Marine Legions and the heroes that commanded them are presented alongside artwork from renowned artist Neil Roberts, as well as brand new historical notes on the Warhammer 40,000 universe by Alan Merrett. Witness the end of an era and the beginning of something far darker, as the Heresy continues to unfold.
A stunning hardback artefact book for fans of the Horus Heresy.
This Edition will be released in stores on Saturday March 15th. All pre-order copies will commence shipping in the week commencing March 10th.

Games Workshop also releases the Sentinals of Terra Hardcover after a long absence of  releases

Sentinels of Terra: A Codex Supplement

- A showcase of Space Marine miniatures featuring the colour scheme and iconography of the Sentinels of Terra.
- New missions: both to recreate famous battles and to reflect the Sentinels of Terra’s favoured tactics.

They also have a limited edition version available. Think I'll pass on this...

Forgeworld have released the new Anvillus Droppod. Striking similarities to the Dreadclaw!

The Dreadclaw is a unique variant of the standard Legiones Astartes Drop Pod that allows for greater mobility for the forces  transported as it is able to take off again after landing.
This is a complete resin and plastic kit, Games Workshop Drop Pod shown in some images sold separately. This set is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from the 28th of February.
Model designed by Phil Stutcinskas.

View from beneath is highly detailed, as we have come to expect from Forgeworld 

The size comparrison shows us it is based of the standard droppod pattern.

And last but not least, is pre orders are up for the new Legion of the Damned Codex. 

Appearing from the shifting tides of the Warp, the Legion of the Damned are mysterious bone-adorned Space Marines who arrive unlooked for to aid the servants of the Imperium. No one knows for sure where they come from, but none can doubt the fury with which they fight, or the trail of dead foes they leave in their wake. Tormented by a ghostly past and afflicted by the very power that snatches them from one battlefield to the next, the Legion are truly cursed warriors who, perhaps, seek salvation through the carnage they visit upon the enemies of the Emperor.
About the Book:Codex: Legion of the Damned allows you to add Legion of the Damned squads into your Warhammer 40,000 army, or field them as a detachment in their own right. It includes extensive background on the mysterious Legion of the Damned, detailing the times they have appeared to fight alongside the armies of the God-Emperor. Also inside you will find rules for Legion of the Damned units, as well as three new missions, an artefact and Warlord Traits and, all unique to these legendary warriors.
AN INTERACTIVE IPAD EDITION OF THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM THE IBOOKSTORE FOR IPAD AND IPAD MINIMarch 2014 •eBook available in Mobi and ePub Format. Compatible with Android, Kindle and iBooks devices. Exact layout, page count and formatting will vary based on the eReader used.

One last parting shot. Looks like Black Library is about to announce something... They have a place holder page up reffered to as "our ranges" with very few details on it. Will have to wait until Monday to find out more...
