Forgeworld have been releasing thick and fast lately with the upcoming open day. This time we get shots of the Super Heavy Legion Falchion that we had teased a few weeks ago on the FW blog. It reminds me of a JE100 paper tank
The Falchion uses a potent weapon which combines technologies fielded in the Fellblade and the Shadowsword super-heavy tank. The Falchion’s twin-mounted Volcano cannon is one of the most powerful vehicle-mounted, anti-tank weapons in the Imperium’s arsenal and it requires such an investment in resources to construct just a single example that its use is limited to the Legiones Astartes. Even then, the Falchion is so rare that most Legions maintain but a handful, reserved for use against the largest of enemy war machines.
The Falchion was developed long before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and as such its prey was not the enemy Titans it would later see such extensive combat against. As the Great Crusade expanded ever outward, the Expeditionary fleets encountered a staggering array of foes, some of whom were of a truly gargantuan scale, but all were set to ravening flame by the touch of the Falchion’s Volcano cannon.
The rules for the Falchion, as well as many other exciting new models, can be found in the forthcoming book The Horus Heresy Book Three: Extermination.A limited quantity of this multi-part resin kit, designed by Phil Stutcinskas, will be available to purchase at the Forge World Open Day. The Legion Falchion Super-heavy Tank Destroyer will go on general release in the next few weeks.
