Forge World’s back and just released some great new minis for The Hobbit as well as a new Caladius Grav Tank! Come take a look!
Based upon the technology of the Coronus Grav-carrier, the smaller Caladius grav-tank is designed to utilise the firepower afforded by the heaviest elements of the Legio Custodes’ arsenal on a highly mobile, protected platform. Given the fusion of advanced systems and weapons, the Caladius is perhaps the most powerful battleline armoured unit of its size in the Imperium’s forces, utilising technologies and materials derived not only from the Dark Age of Technology, but from developments made as a result of the Great Crusade’s two centuries of warfare.
A particularly powerful variant was the ‘Caladius-Annihilator’ which featured an enhanced capacitor-fed Arachnus blaze cannon potent that is enough to pose a threat even to super-heavy armour. This complete, 39-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble that variant.
Featuring the same silhouette as the other Caladius Grav-tank variants, but with an especially aggressive-looking turret profile featuring the above-mentioned Arachnus blaze cannon, the Annihilator is appropriately named. Covered in extra detailing such as the cooling flasks that dissipate the immense energies unleashed whenever this tank attacks, photonic accelerators, visible engine and two lastrum bolt cannon on the front of the hull.
Rules for using a Caldius Grav-tank Annihilator as part of a Legio Custodes army can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno.
The kit is supplied with a 170x105mm oval base.
A collection of some of the heaviest weaponry the Legio Custodes could bring to bear can be yours with this fearsome bundle of massive firepower. It includes two powerful tanks:
The Caladius Grav-tank, with its distinctive Iliastus accelerator cannon – two barrels of killing capacity – and twin-linked Lastrum bolt cannon. This resin kit comes with a 170x105mm oval base and flying stem.
The Caladius Grav-tank Annihilator is an especially aggressive variant of the Caladius Grav-tank, featuring an Arachnus blaze cannon and all the cooling flasks and vents that are necessary when unleashing such a storm of energy. This resin kit also features a Lastrum bolt cannon, and is supplied with a 170x105mm oval base and flying stem.
Rules for these can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno.
The vanguard of Dain’s army, these Chariots run ahead of the Dwarves of the Iron Hills taking out any enemy scouts who dare to oppose them. Pulled by six goats at a time and with razor-sharp scythes attached to its wheels, anyone that is unfortunate enough to get in the way of a charging Chariot will end up considerably shorter!
A highly detailed resin model, the Iron Hills Chariot makes a great Warriors unit for the Iron Hills Dwarf Army. The six large, horned goats that pull it are attached via collars of iron and wood, with a strong wooden brace in the middle. At the front of the intimidatingly spiked chariot stands a dwarf gripping the firing mechanism of a rapid-fire bolt thrower, with a dwarf wielding a sword by his side. On a raised platform stands the driver, who can be optionally replaced with an Iron Hills Captain (who is included in the kit.)
The kit comprises 83 components, and is supplied with a 170x105mm oval base.
Rules for the Iron Hills Chariot can be found in The Hobbit™: There And Back Again.
