Master of the Space Wolves Legion and Lord of icy Death World of Fenris, Leman Russ was an incomparable warlord, ferocious beyond measure and faultlessly loyal to the Emperor and his Imperium. Known as the Wolf King and the Lord of Winter and Ruin, as undoubtedly as savage as Leman Russ was, he was also wise beyond his Legion’s barbaric appearances and self-aware to a degree few guessed at, which made him doubly dangerous.
At Prospero his loyalty and foresight were used against him by the machinations of Horus, as he was loosed upon his brother Magnus. What was to follow was one of the darkest hours of the Imperium’s history, as Space Marine was set against Space Marine in war unto the death. The Burning of Prospero was a conflict eclipsed only by the nightmare civil war that came after.
Fighting with a ferocity and skill far beyond anything human, Leman Russ wields the sword of Balenight, known as Mjalnar, an ancient blade whose dark legend stretched back to the Age of Strife; and Helwinter, Russ’ great frost axe, its murderous edge made with the kraken-teeth of a mighty beast Russ slew himself. His warplate is a suit of singular artificer power armour, incorporating unique exothermic field generators, otherwise unknown of in the Imperium’s arsenal of technology.
Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves is part of The Horus Heresy Character Series. Russ’ exceptionally detailed armour features runes, pelts and the markings of the Space Wolves Legion along with a range of ranged and close combat weapons. He is depicted charging to battle through the ruins of Prospero, featuring icons of the Thousand Sons Legion, with a larger removable scenic base.
Rules for using Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves in Horus Heresy games can be downloaded from the Download tab on this page. Full rules will be available in the forthcoming Horus Heresy Book Seven.
This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes a 40mm gaming base and 60mm scenic base. It is presented in a black Horus Heresy Character Series box.
Sokar Pattern Stormbird: £750
The Sokar pattern Stormbird is a dedicated attack lander. It has served as a high-durability orbital assault craft, a mobile bastion and firebase which could land a Space Marine strike force and withstand heavy ground fire while its cargo or troops and war machines disembarked to press the attack. One of the later patterns developed, the Sokar was the design precursor to the smaller Thunderhawk Gunship.
The Stormbird’s standard armament is four turret-mounted twin linked lascannon, three twin-linked heavy bolters, and a complement of six dreadstrike missiles. It is also equipped with particularly dense composite armour plating, and is further protected by a series of void shield generators which it can extend to protect disembarking troops and war machines.
Its cavernous transport bays can hold 50 fully armed Space Marines. Alternatively it can carry up to 5 Dreadnoughts, including the mighty Leviathan; Jump-pack equipped infantry; Rapier batteries; bikes; jetbikes; a Rhino armoured transport; or a mixed force of all of the above.
The Sokar pattern Stormbird is the largest Imperial aircraft we have produced. Weighing 6 kg and measuring over half a meter from nose to tail, it’s so large, a Deimos pattern Rhino can be loaded inside it and disembark by the rear hatch. Its interior includes extensively detailed transport bays and cockpit, and six Space Marine crew: two pilots and four turret gunners. Optional quad heavy bolters and twin-linked lascannon to be mounted on Stormbird’s four ball-turrets are included.
Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List. Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the rules tab on this page.
This huge, multi-part resin kit builds one complete Sokar pattern Stormbird.

The Mastodon was one of the heaviest assault transports in the arsenal of the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade, and is still found in the armouries of the Space Marine Chapters of the 41st Millenium. Its cavernous assault bay, capable of housing almost half a Company, is protected both by thick layers of ceramite armour as well as crackling void shields. It also mounts a fearsome siege melta array, allowing it to breach even the most formidable defences with ease, as well as an array of secondary weaponry intended to defend the vehicle as it approaches its target. Unleashed only against the most fearsome of enemy redoubts, there are few obstacles that can stay the wrath of this relic of the Imperium’s bloody birth.
The Mastodon is heavily armed and armoured, carrying 40 Space Marines, and even Dreadnoughts, safely to the heart of battle. Whilst embarked, the warriors within will defend their immense transport, turning the sponson weapons on any enemy brave or foolish enough to come close. It’s Siege melta array can easily destroy fortifications, and makes short work of armoured vehicles, whilst its Skyreaper Battery will tear through any airborne threat with ease.
Rules for using the Mastodon Heavy Assault Transport in Horus Heresy Games can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List and in The Horus Heresy Book Six – Retribution. Rules for using the Mastodon in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the rules tab on this page.
The Mastodon Heavy Assault Transport is a complete multi-part resin kit that builds one super-heavy transport vehicle.
Spartan Assault Tank: £109
An armoured transport of truly massive proportions, the Spartan is a heavy assault tank previously all but unknown outside of the revered Space Marine Chapters and the secretive Adeptus Mechanicus. The Spartan is a huge armoured conveyer whose purpose is to carry a large body of troops into the very heart of an enemy’s battle lines, weathering weapons fire that would be the death of any lesser vehicle.
Its design bears clear connections with that of the mighty Land Raider, and its genius is such that the greater proportion of its interior space is given over to a transport capacity greater than any other Imperial vehicle save the super-heavy Gorgons – being capable of carrying twenty-five power armoured Space Marines into battle. It is, however, considerably faster on the battlefield thanks to potent reactor-driven motive drives, and it boasts an equally potent armament in the form of sponson-mounted quad lascannon batteries and secondary heavy bolters.
The Spartan can also be upgraded with our range of Land Raider doors.
The Spartan Assault Tank is an enormous multi-part resin kit that features a detailed interior.
One of the most advanced armoured units in the arsenal of the Great Crusade, the Sicaran Battle Tank was the exclusive province of the Space Marine Legions. The Sicaran utilises component technologies from various STC patterns to create a high-speed ‘destroyer’ tank to complement the more commonplace Predator and Land Raider designs.
The primary armament of the main Sicaran variant is the sophisticated Herakles pattern accelerator autocannon, a superior rapid-firing and highly accurate weapon. It fires shells at far higher velocities than a standard autocannon, enabling it to successfully track and engage swift moving targets and pinpoint vulnerabilities in enemy armour with lethal precision.
The Sicaran Battle Tank is a complete resin kit. The rules for this model can be found in the Horus Heresy Book 2: Massacre.
Equipped to devastate heavily armoured targets at extreme range, whilst crushing infantry units at close quarters, the Tau KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour is exceptionally destructive when armed with the Heavy Rail Cannon Array. Supremacy Armour was designed to eliminate the increasing numbers of enemy heavy assault elements encountered by the Tau Empire, from Imperial Knights to the towering alien monstrosities of the Tyranid Hive Fleets, and in this configuration it is extraordinarily capable of fulfilling that mission profile.
Armed with a Heavy Rail Cannon Array and a pair of Tri-axis Ion Cannon, this KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour Battlesuit is equipped to engage enemies at long and short range. The array incorporates the devastating Heavy Rail Cannon with its extreme range, destructive firepower, and the Fragmentation Cluster Shell Launcher, a secondary weapon system for close range defence and infantry target saturation. Though part of the same array, these weapons may be targeted and fire independently, in the same way as the KX139’s other secondary weapon systems.
This bundle includes one Tau KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour Body, two Tri-axis Ion Cannon and one Heavy Rail Cannon Array. These multi-part resin kits together build a fully armed Tau KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour Battlesuit including a 160mm round base.
Created in limited numbers in the latter days of the Great Crusade, the Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought was developed in secret on Terra, away from the pervasive oculars of the Mechanicum. Its massive frame incorporates hybridised technologies, some dating back into the dim past of humanity. Towering over later Imperial walker patterns, this heavily armoured dreadnought is savagely powerful.
This Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought is equipped with a Storm Cannon and Grav-flux bombard, powerful and esoteric short ranged weaponry uniquely developed for the Leviathan.
The Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought is a multi-part resin kit. It includes optional torso mounted heavy flamers and volkite calivers, an optional Phosphex discharger and an 80mm round base.
