Lavishly illustrated in full colour, this leather bound 270 page book contains an extensive history of the Ultramarines, unit profiles and an army list as well as rules for the Primarch of the XIIIth Legion, Roboute Guilliman, so he can lead your army to war along with the elite of his Legion. To represent their part in the conflict, the rules for the Word Bearers Legion have been updated and new units and characters provided for them. The new Imperialis Militia & Cults army list allows you to field the massed troops and war machines of a range of armies raised on a myriad of worlds, including planetary defence forces and twisted Warp cults, with rules to represent your army’s unique background and fighting style.
Additional units for Legiones Astartes and Mechanicum armies are presented within Tempest, such as the Sokar Pattern Stormbird, the Domitar Class Battle-automata and rules for using the gargantuan Mars Warlord Battle Titan.
Bringing this wealth of source material and game rules together, the Betrayal at Calth campaign lets you refight the apocalyptic battles between the Traitors and the Loyalists, providing missions, deployment maps and Age of Darkness expansion rules so you can either fight for Calth, or bring about its utter destruction.
The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 22nd May.

And its Sunday, July 5th!
Get your tickets here.
Being in the US, I will wait for the Horus Heresy Weekender!
Forge World has released its own line of paints.
These are specially formulated for airbrushing, so they should be just what many hobbyists want.
From Forge World:
If anyone wants to tell us how they work, we would love to know!
The Alpha Legion Upgrades are coming!
The new Forge World Bulletin has a photo of some Alpha Legion upgrades and more.
Sigismund is Here!
And he looks amazing!
From Forge World:
Wielding the Black Sword, a paragon blade of ancient and unknown provenance, Sigismund has brought countless warriors and warlords to a bloody end. Now, as the Horus Heresy unfolds, he has turned his consummate skill with the blade against the Traitor Legions, ready to strike down all who oppose the Emperor of Mankind and endanger the Imperium he helped build.
Sigismund, First Captain of the Imperial Fists, is the latest addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series. His ornate armour and tabard include insignia and markings of both the Imperial Fists Legion and the Templar Brethren. His display base features the ruins of a Sicaran battle tank’s tracks whilst his removable gaming base includes a destroyed lascannon and sections of Legiones Astartes armour as well as other battlefield debris.
This multi-part resin kit is supplied in a presentation box and includes a 32mm gaming base and a 60mm display base.
This kit is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 19th June.
Imperial Fists are looking good!
The new Forge World Bulletin is out with a cool new character.
The traitors are getting chaotic!
Plus, the last bulletin has some photos of the new Forge World store at Warhammer World in Nottingham. I am looking forward to going when the next Horus Heresy Weekender comes around.
The Ultramaine Mk IV Praetorians was a surprise. Lots of Smurf-lovers out there in the Heresy!
And all you Horus Heresy Ultramarine players can rejoice. As previously shown, this is a truly stunning model, and the details of teh base are spectaculer (though good luck painting marble this good!).
Primarch of the Ultramarines Legion and Master of the Five Hundred Worlds of Ultramar, Roboute Guilliman is an indefatigable warrior, consummate tactician and statesman without parallel. He has forged the XIIIth Legion to be a disciplined and deadly force; one which fights with seamless tactical integration.
His mastery of strategy makes him not only an skilled commander, but also a lethal combatant. An expert in the arts of war, Guilliman possesses a vast selection of weapons and wargear. The most iconic of which include the Hand of Dominion, a unique power gauntlet, the Gladius Incandor, a shimmering blade of great artifice and the Arbitrator, a customised combi-bolter.
Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, is part of the Horus Heresy Character Series. This complete multi-part resin kit is supplied with a 40mm gaming base, which slots into a 60mm scenic diorama base for display.
Rules for Roboute Guilliman and the Ultramarines Legion can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest.
The Warlord Titan is here!
And man it is a beauty! But be prepared, it is very pricey!
From Forge World:
In addition to its ardex-defensor mauler bolt cannon and lascannon turrets, support weapons that would be considered main armaments on smaller war machines, the Warlord is commonly fitted with a pair of carapace-mounted triple-barrelled laser blasters and two Belicosa pattern Volcano cannon.
The Belicosa pattern Volcano cannon is one of the most potent energy weapons produced by the forges of the Mechanicum. It is so fearsome infact that only the plasma reactor of the Warlord Titan can feed its ravenous appetite for power and make possible the destruction of the most terrible foes of Mankind. The Warlord’s triple-barrelled laser blasters are also immensely powerful weapons, created to destroy entire squadrons of armoured vehicles in each blazing volley.
By far the most impressive model we have ever produced, the Mars pattern Warlord Titan stands at over 22 inches tall and weighs more than twice that of a Reaver Titan. Consisting of more than 200 parts, this huge model is amazingly poseable and immensely detailed, from its pistons, vents and access hatches to the intricately designed cockpit and crew inside its head and the embossed icons on its armour plates. It will truly be the pinnacle of any collection and will dominate any battlefield it is placed on.
The rules for using the Mars Warlord Battle Titan can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five - Tempest and may be used in both games set during the Horus Heresy and in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, in which case the Mars Warlord Battle Titan is a Lords of War choice for Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Space Marines.
The Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body, Mars-Alpha pattern Warlord Titan Head, Mars pattern Warlord Belicosa Volcano Cannon and Mars pattern Warlord Titan Laser Blasters are each multi-part resin kits which together build a complete Mars pattern Warlord Titan. You will need two Mars pattern Warlord Belicosa Volcano Cannon to complete the Warlord Titan.

The Salamanders get some Black Library Love!
Man, are these guys hot or what? OK, bad pun, but seriously, the Salamanders seem to be the army of the hour (along with the UM).
From The Black Library:
Before the massacre on Isstvan V, the primarch Vulkan returns to his forge on Nocturne to prepare for war against the traitors. However, in light of recent conflicts with his wayward brother Konrad Curze, he looks upon his personal armoury with a startling new clarity. If the wrath of the supposedly loyal Night Lords can be unleashed upon their own home world in a moment of unchecked rage, is it wise for any Legion to have access to such devastating devices as the Engine of Woes, the Unbound Flame or the Song of Entropy?
Read it because
A small, personal tale with massive consequences. Framed as a conversation between Vulkan and one of his sons on the eve of Isstvan V, it encompasses Konrad Curze’s madness, the destruction of Nostramo, Horus’s betrayal, the creation of the role of Forgefather within the Salamanders and the origins of the mysterious artefacts the Salamanders hunt ten millennia later.
About this ebook
This story has previously appeared in print in the Horus Heresy Limited Edition novella Sedition’s Gate. This is the first time it has been made available in digital formats.
It is available on the Black Library Website for $ 3.99.
Forge World shows the Alpha Legion love with ten new helmets and five new torsos.
The head sculpts are spectacular.
Cloaked in rumor and shrouded by deception, what is known of the Alpha Legion is a tattered patchwork of half-truths and conjecture. Even before the dark days of the Horus Heresy, identification of its warriors was proving increasingly difficult as the Legion’s heraldry was constantly changing, with chains, scales, hydras and ancient Terran letters noted as becoming more prevalent on the armour of those thought to belong to the XXth.
The Alpha Legion Heads Upgrade Set includes 10 resin heads for Mk IV and Mk VI armour. The Alpha Legion Mk IV Torsos Upgrade Set includes five resin Mk IV torsos, each with various
New Carapace mounted missile launchers are coming.

A new Horus Heresy Limited Edition Novella is coming.
Cybernetica is the latest limited edition to come out and will be available July 24th.
From The Black Library:
Soon after word reached Terra of Horus’s nascent rebellion, Mars fell. Rogue elements within the Mechanicum priesthood, stirred by the Warmaster’s promises of independence and prosperity, turned against the Imperium and forced the primarch Rogal Dorn to order an impenetrable blockade of the Red Planet. Now it has become clear that the corruption has spread too deep, and that more drastic measures must be taken if the Forge World Principal is to be reclaimed. Calling upon the expertise of those who witnessed the so-called ‘Death of Innocence’ firsthand, Lord Dorn and Malcador the Sigillite consider their final solution – the complete extermination of all life on Mars.
Read it because
The Horus Heresy returns to the Solar System… No, we’re not at that battle quite yet. But what are the lords of Terra going to do about Mars…? Cybernetica delves into some of the darkest secrets of the Mechanicum and shows the lengths to which the Imperium is willing to go – and the rules they are willing to break – to exterminate the traitors.
About this edition
This limited edition will be available to order from Friday the 24th of July. Be amongst the first to secure your copy by setting your reminder or signing up for Comm-Feed. To whet your appetite for the story, download a free wallpaper of the cover art below.
Perturabo is here!
From Forge World:
Renowned as the master of siege breaking, the Lord of Iron was also a skilled combatant. His personal armour, the Logos, incorporated sophisticated technologies and weapon systems, including a teleport homer, cortex controller and a wrist-mounted cannon of Perturabo’s own devising, which had a level of raw destructive firepower far in excess of its class. After Ferrus Manus’ death on Isstvan V, Perturabo also wielded his brother’s hammer, Forgebreaker, brutally adapted for his own use.
Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors, is the latest addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series. His unique armour is incredibly detailed and includes ammo feeds for his wrist-mounted cannon, as well as the markings of his Legion. Two right hands are included in this kit with the options of a clenched fist or the thunder-hammer Forgebreaker. Perturabo is provided with a 40mm gaming base and a 60mm scenic base that depicts the ruined chassis of a Cerastus Knight.
Rules for using Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors, in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Three – Extermination.
This is a multi-part resin kit and is presented in a stylish Horus Heresy Character Series box.
Perturabo, Primarch of the Iron Warriors is available for pre-order today for despatch from Friday 17th July.
Those who have witnessed this loathsome disciple of Nurgle in action tell of a tidal wave of rot and disease which spills before Cor’bax as he enters the battlefield. Life corrupts at his touch, and any mortals unfortunate enough to survive are snapped up whole within his gaping maw to slowly perish and fuel the gifts of Nurgle Cor’bax will generously bestow upon the next world he attacks.
Cor’bax Utterblight, Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm, is the latest addition to Forge World’s Horus Heresy Character Series. He stands more than twice the height of a man and his body is festooned with tentacles, spikes and the remains of those he has devoured, whilst a bloated tongue protrudes from his tooth-filled maw. A trio of Nurglings are also included for you to position on Cor’bax Utterblight or over his 120mm oval base.
Rules for using Cor’bax Utterblight in Horus Heresy games or standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.
Cor’bax Utterblight, Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm, is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 24th July.
Order him on the Forge World website for £70 or $ 109.
These vile engines of destruction will have had many gifts bestowed upon them in return for their devotion to the dark gods. Some Chaos Knights may be refitted with powerful and tainted weaponry, augmenting their already fearsome strength in close combat with foe-reaper chainswords, barbarous corruptions of reaper chainswords adapted to gouge and eviscerate all who get within their reach. Whilst those who have given themselves over fully to one of the Chaos gods receive malevolent powers, granting them unnatural and terrifying abilities that few can match and defend against.
This kit, which stands at over 17cm tall, includes all of the parts needed to build either a Chaos Knight Paladin or Chaos Knight Errant. Its carapace, weapons and armour plates are adorned with the markings displaying their devotion to the powers of Chaos, and the kit also includes a foe-reaper chainsword and desecrated optional heraldic plates.
Rules for using the Chaos Knight in games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found HERE.
This is a multi-part resin and plastic kit with multiple options. It includes a 170mm oval base.
The Chaos Knight is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 24th July.
Order him on the Forge World website for £115 or $ 179.

And now the rumors....
From 75Hastings69 7-27-2015
Regarding Horus Heresy Plastic Boxed Set:Regarding Horus Heresy & 40K rules in the future:It’s not REALLY a starter set, it’s a standalone game, from which the models will be available from at a later date. The execution force assassin models weren’t snap fit either.
…I’ll share what I have heard, but this dates back a while as I pay very little interest to GW now.
I heard that 30k HH would be a boxed standalone game (like execution force was) and that the plastics contained within it would go on to form part of a larger 30k range and would be released some time later as individual box sets/clampacks, I was told that rules would be in those boxes, but that some boxes would contain rules for 30k AND 40k (and these boxes have BOTH logos on – yes there is a new 30k logo) so I assume it will be using a different ruleset to 40k (as there would be no point having rules for both systems in boxes if they were both the same). I was also told the plastic assassins would get clampack releases later and be released as part of the main 40k range….. as the box set is pretty much still quite widely available I don’t expect this to be soon, although I never had a timeframe in the first case.
As for your AoS style rule reboot question – I remember being told to expect 40k codexes (codices?) to be a thing of the past within 2 years, and that the rules would be in the box for each model/unit, but there would still be a core ruleset which the in box rules would obviously add to. I’ve not bought any AoS releases (nor do I intend to) so I don’t know if they have rules in the boxes (seems daft as when rules got FAQ’d (lol) or changed they’d need to repack ALL the boxes – seems even dafter that anything would actually bother with rules for AoS!!) or just online? I am going to leap to the conclusion that 40k probably WILL become more simplified like AoS, mainly because GW no longer see themselves as rules/games writers but just model sellers. How much more simplified I wouldn’t hazard a guess at. Whatever they decide to do you can bet it’s in the pipeline already, because myself and Harry were privately discussing the changes to WFB almost 3 years ago – I was told it was being canned and whilst we thought that was not the case and that AoS would be a continuation or refresh of it WFB HAS actually been canned and REPLACED by AoS, so these things are planned well ahead.
FW make huge sales from HH, there was no way that GW weren’t going to want in on the action! I expect FW to still produce the big kits/characters/customising kits but GW will provide the bulk of the models needed to play 30k. We can only hope that GW let FW handle the 30k rules/books and they just make the models for it. But keep in mind I was told that when the 30k RANGE hits the stores (not the standalone box game but the actual range) it will take over the store space that used to be taken up by LotR/Hobbit, so GW may want to keep tight hold of the reigns even though they are no longer committed to producing games?
…Having thought about this I think the unit/model rules for 30k & 40k will be online/WD rather than actually inside the box kits (I may have misinterpreted what my source said).
Also I should point out that as I understand it 40k and 30k will be very different games/rulesets, so it may be that 40k becomes like AoS and 30k is handled by FW (although this is just wishful thinking on the behalf of hobbyists the world over!).
Of course I may be completely wrong…… because that happens a lot
