    The new Forge World Mechanicum models are out and they are SPECTACULAR!

    There are 3 different models in the Myrmidon Destructors and the detail is amazing.


     
    From Forge World:

    The Myrmidon Destructors form a heavily armed and augmented sub-sect of the Mechanicum priesthood. They craft their augmetics to carry the heaviest of weapons, often only rendered portable owing to their reinforced endoskeletons and implanted power systems. These augmentations enable the Myrmidon Destructors to maintain a furious barrage on the battlefield and to do so with a precision and skill unequalled. They specialise particularly in the destruction of enemy armoured and fortified emplacements, and wield all manner of esoteric and arcane weapons, against which conventional defenses offer little protection. 

    The Mechanicum Myrmidon Destructors set contains three resin models and is available to order now for immediate release.

    Full rules for these models, designed by Mark Bedford, can be found in The Horus Heresy book 2; Massacre.

    You can find them on the Forge World website.

    Tidbits from around the net.
     
    Not much new on a Sunday, so here are a few small things.

    From Darnok on Warseer

    As far as I'm informed, the Helbrutes will be available a week after the Knights Codex. 
    It won't go up for advance order with the new Warhammer Visions though, as the Knight books have that spot. As far as I know, the Helbrutes release is the 15th (so advance order from 8th). 

    From barcode on the Bols Lounge

    Default Imperial Knights Delays in Eastern US

    A handful of retailers in the Eastern United States are saying:

    Imperial Knights are being limited to smaller numbers per retailer and are being slowed by up to 1 week due to delays with a particular shipment clearing US Customs. This is said to be limited to the Eastern United States only, and no other delays are reported in other areas.


    Enjoy!

    An in-depth look at the Legion of the Damned
     
    BoLS published this look at the new Legion of the Damned Dataslate and it is worth a read.

    LEGION OF THE DAMNED
    Army Rules
     
    The book introduces yet another specialized Force Organizational Chart and special Allied Detachment, much like Codex: Inquisition. The FOC requires 1 Elites slot and allows you to take up to 3 more Elites. That's right, your single unit option is an Elites option. 

    Much like the Inquisition the Legion of the Damned form their own specialized detachment that doesn't use a standard allies slot. They can also be fielded as the primary detachment for your army, with a second Legion of the Damned group in the Legion of the Damned detachment slot netting you up to 8 units of Legion to control. If you do make the Legion your Primary Detachment, all Legion units are also scoring. 

    There is one problem with fielding a full Legion army though at the time of the release of the codex I'll go into a bit more under the unit specific rules, but it may change in the future. That said I did contact Games Workshop: Digital Editions about it via their Facebook so if anything changes I'll post an update to this article.
     
    Now the Legion of course brings an allies chart of it's own to the mix, so let's give it a quick rundown:
    Battle Brothers: Adepta Sororitas, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Grey Knights, Imperial Guard, Inquisition, Legion of the Damned, Space Marines, Space Wolves Allies of Convenience: Eldar Desperate Allies: Dark Eldar, Tau Come the Apocalypse: Chaos Daemons, Chaos Marines, Necrons, Orks, Tyranids

    Honestly not too many surprises considering the nature of the Legion. I'm just thankful for the inclusion of Sisters as Battle Brothers. Those poor nuns usually get left out in the cold on a lot of things so anything that gives them more options is always a plus in my book.
     
    Warlord Traits
     
    No, you didn't read that wrong, even though the Legion has no HQs, they do have Warlord Traits. If you're fielding the Legion of the Damned as your Primary Detachment then you nominate one of the Legionnaire Sergeants in your unit to be your Warlord. He then gets to roll on the Warlord Traits tables in the book or on the Legion's table, which I've provided below: 
    Inferno of Vengeance: Warlord and his unit have the Soul Blaze special rule Aura of Fear: When taking Fear tests units in base contact with the Warlord's unit suffer a cumulative -1 penality to their leadership value for each friendly Legion of the Damned squad on the battlefield beyond the first (translation: max of -7 penalty) Ethereal Bolts: The Warlord and his unit, have the Armorbane rule when firing the following weapons: bolt pistol, boltgun, storm bolter, heavy bolter or any combi-weapon firing as a boltgun. Spectral Bulwark: The Warlord and his unit have the Feel no Pain (5+) special rule Never Too Late, Never Too Early: Instead of making a reserve rule for the Warlord and his unit at the start of Turn Two the controlling player can instead decide if they want the unit to arrive that turn. If kept in Reserve the player can then choose if they want them to arrive or not on Turn Three. If still in Reserve on Turn Four, however, the unit must be deployed.Retribution Made Manifest: The Warlord and his unit have the Preferred Enemy special rule.

    Easily my favorite in this have to be Ethereal Bolts, just because of a unit being able to threaten any vehicle on the table with their Bolters (S4+2d6=Max 16, average being 11) is kind of hilarious. The only one I feel is a bit silly is the Never Too Late, Never Too Early, only because I don't see a lot of potential use for it. I could always be proven wrong though so I won't judge too hard, I'm just not able to think up a lot of uses for it right now.
     
    Army List
     
    Just in case you missed it, or skipped it earlier to come down here and see what army options there are, there is only one unit to choose from. It's an Elites choice called the Legion of the Damned Squad.

    Coming standard with 5 models (4 Legionnaires and one Legionnaire Sergeant (who has the distinction of being 1 point better in Weapon Skill than is normal for a Space Marine Sergeant)) and the ability to take up to 5 additional Legionnaires this unit has a pretty good swath of rules and options. So let's take a quick look.

    Standard wargear is, well standard. Everyone starts off with Power Armour, Bolt Pistol, Boltgun, Frag and Krak Grenades, the same as you'd expect for Marines in pretty much any book at this point. The fun actually starts in the Special Rules: 

    Aid Unlooked For: Legion of the Damned does not benefit from Chapter Tactics, and they can't be joined by Independent characters. They always start the game in Reserve and always arrive by Deep Strike. When they arrive by Deep Strike you may re-roll the scatter dice if you wish. Fear: Yes, it's the USR. Fearless: USR once again. Flaming Projectiles: Ranged attacks made by the Legion of the Damned have the Ignores Cover special rule. Slow and Purposeful: Once again, a USR. Unyielding Spectres: The Legion of the Damned have a 3+ invulnerable save.
    Not too bad, except for one big issue: 
    Aid Unlooked For. Because this rule was apparently lifted straight from the Space Marine codex it creates a major problem for anyone who wants to run a pure Legion army. As it stands at the time of writing this means you automatically lose at the end of Turn 1 because your army is not allowed on the table any sooner than Turn 2, as per the Deep Strike Rules. 


    So that problem aside, how can you equip your Legion units (beyond adding more Legionnaires of course)? Let's take a look:
    - One Legionnaire may replace his boltgun with: Flamer, Meltagun or Plasmagun.
    - A different Legionnaire may replace his boltgun with: Heavy Bolter, Heavy flamer, Multi-melta, Missile Launcher (comes with frag and krak, may upgrade to have flakk), Plasma cannon or Lascannon.
    - The Legionnaire Sergeant may replace his boltgun with: Chainsword, Power weapon or Powerfist.
    - The Legionnaire Seargeant may replace his bolt pistol and or melee weapon with: Storm Bolter, Combi-flamer/-grav/-melta/-plasma, Grav-pistol, Plasma pistol.
    - One Legionnaire Sergeant may take the Animus Malorum.

  • 03/04/14--07:23: Black Library Live Report



  • The Black Library Live seems to have been a hit.
     
    The guys over at Battle Bunnies published a full report.  Here are the highlights. 

    Seminar 1 - Q&A with Graham McNeill

    Graham is currently working on a heresy novel called Crimson King. This is set immediately following Thousand sons. 
    He would like to work on Dark Angels however Dan Abnett has a 'great Idea for them which is too cool for words. I had nothing'. Very interesting.
    Unit similar to Gal Vorbak in Vengeful Spirit for Sons of Horus. They are the first in a long list of 'subtle temptations for Horus.' The book is about the start of his road where he finally starts accepting the Gods favours.
    When asked about what the primarchs would think about the 41st Millenium he said that he believed they would head straight to Terra, tear the place down and start again. He then teased that this was touching on a sub-plot from one of his upcoming 40k novels. Appetite officially whetted. More on this later.
    Graham believes that we are about five years until Siege of terra.

    Seminar 2 - Q&A with Chris Wraight - Great Wolf 

    A lot of the discussion was diverted to White Scars and Heresy.
    There are plans for 'Scars 2' - I am excited about this as Scars was probably my favourite book so far.
    Chris has a short story immediately after Scars which is finished. 
    Chris would like to do more for thousand sons.
    He talked about the family ties between primarchs which was brilliant. He mentioned a quote from Scars which, funnily enough has stuck with me too regarding The Khan's thought process for his actions.
    The full battle between AL and SWs will be revisited. Either as a short story or own book.
    Chris would like to write more about the Sigilite. He mainly wants to touch on Nikea and how the Imperium were on the cusp of 'becoming a psychic race' - between the Emperor and Malcador they had learnt from Eldar's mistakes and would master the warp.
    When asked who would win, Leman Russ or the Khan? He replied: 
    'As with all primarch fights, it would depend on the circumstance. However, the Khan would win'

    Seminar 3 - Q&A with Nick Kyme - Forgefather

    When asked what the Kabal are upto in the 40k, Nick said that Eldrad Ulthran outlives the Kabal. He also hinted that they are probably done with Vulkan.
    He accidentally revealed the name of this years limited edition anthology 'seditions Gate' it will feature an explanation of Vulkans Artefacts from a 30k perspective in a short called Artefact. 
    He would do like to do a Death Guard book as they are relatively unsung.

    Seminar 4 - Q&A with Nick Lyme, Gav Thorpe, Graham McNeill and Chris Wraight
    GT: Working on a novella called Corax Ravenlord - Corax becomes a pain in the arse. Raven guard become a symbol of hope and unite a world. 
    He says that Horus wasn't sidelined during the Heresy. He was waiting. In Vengeful Spirit he unleashes the Sons of Horus. 
    GT: Will be more Dark Angels vs Death Guard. More Typhon and Corswain.
    We are gunna see DAs get hurt.
    Nick Kyme: Alpha Legion fight as a legion in the future. Will be good to be reminded they are a Legion.
    GT: More stuff between DAs and SWs. More fundamental stuff for the Heresy for DAs.
    GM: some of the Forge World Dark Millenium stuff is incredible.
    More stuff from Istvaan 3, Ancient Rylanors story may yet have more to it.
    The story of the Perpetuals will be fulfilled.
    After the Heresy, Black Library will tackle the scouring, age of unity or great crusade or just continue with heresy.

    Seminar 5 - Q&A with John French 

    Zharost is chief librarian of night lords and stood with the other Chief Librarians at Nikea. Child of night is a future short story featuring Zharost and Sevatar.

  • 03/06/14--08:33: Forge World Thallax Cohort


  • The Thallax Cohort gets two amazing new models from Forge World

    These models are really beautiful and will make a great addition to a Heresy army.


    THALLAX COHORT WITH PHOTON THRUSTER

    From Forge World:

    The Thallaxii are heavily augmented cyborg shock-troops used by the Mechanicum Ordo Reductor, and they differ from the Skitarii regiments both in purpose and the unique degree of their augmetics. The Lorica Thallax was developed from power armour technology and requires a robust human specimen.

    The Lorica encloses the major organs, nervous system and cerebrum, but entirely replaces the skeletal structure and limbs with armoured bionics powered by an internal reactor-core. Surgical excision of the subject’s pain sensors, emotions, and normal human sensory apparatus and the agony caused by the Lorica’s implantation, leaves the Thallax a cold, calculating killing machine (albeit one that retains a degree of independent thought). 
    This set includes three resin Mechanicum Thallax models, one of which is armed with a photon thruster weapon, the others being armed with lightning guns.  These models are available for pre-order now and will be despatched from March 31st. Models designed by Will Hayes.

    Thallax Cohort with Multi-Melta can be bought on the Forge World website here.


    THALLAX COHORT WITH MULTI-MELTA

    From Forge World:

    The Thallaxii are heavily augmented cyborg shock-troops used by the Mechanicum Ordo Reductor, and they differ from the Skitarii regiments both in purpose and the unique degree of their augmetics. The Lorica Thallax was developed from power armour technology and requires a robust human specimen.

    This set includes three resin Mechanicum Thallax models, one of which is armed with a multi-melta weapon, the others being armed with lightning guns.  These models are available for pre-order now and will be despatched from March 31st. Models designed by Will Hayes.

    Thallax Cohort with Multi-Melta can be bought on the Forge World website here.


    Getting a Mechanicum army built is a lot easier now.

  • 03/06/14--20:21: Imperial Guard are Coming!


  • The Imperial Guard Guard are Coming this month!

    Bell of Lost Souls has posted the folowing:
     
    Imperial Guard will take up a 3 week release slot.
    - Week one is up for preorder with the March 22nd White Dwarf.
    - Breakdown is as follows:

    Week 1: 3 kits, including the Ogryns plastic combo-kit and 2 others.
    Week 2: Codex
    Week 3: 2 kits 


    - Ogryns/Bullgryns plastic combo-kit (one unit with ranged weapons, the other with giant shields and close combat weapons)
    - Stormtroopers/Veterans combo-kit
    - Unseen "Big transport" kit.

    This new vehicle is said to be able to move entire squads of Ogryns and other stuff (so apparently more transport space than the Chimera). This kit is said to be roughly Land Raider sized. Previous "big tank" chatter over a month ago has also described it as being influenced by the Forgeworld Malcador's design.
     


    That is great info, and I am looking forward to this release.
