Box Art. Ultramarines vs Word Bearers. Lets hope the models are not specific to the two legions...
Plastic contemptor with what appears to be Multi Melta and Keres Assault Cannon
The game itself is rumored to be an adaption from the popular Space Hulk. Its apparently designed to be an entry into the 30k Heresy era conflict.
The box set is played on tiles just like any other stand alone game. A few rumours are circulating talking about further or future releases of plastic Heresy era kits dependent on demand.
This looks to be an easy sell to many, and I can see why many people think the plastics will be released in the future as seperate kits. It makes a lot of sense when you look at the releases from Forgeworld recently focusing on upgrade kits for Mk III & IV marines.
The Mk IV armour frame pics leak a few months back show an equally complex kit in grey plastic not unlike the Mk VII kits, as opposes to the snap fit and coloured plastic often found in stand alone boxed sets.
This may well be my first GW purchase in 4 months. Just when you thought you where out... (Forgeworld addictions not included...)
