This week’s Forge World new releases are in and all we’re seeing the new Custodes Telemon Heavy Dreadnought and Tau Tigershark.
Up for pre-order now are the following new releases from Forge World:
This bundle nets you all the parts you need to build a complete Legio Custodes Telemon Dreadnought. It includes a resin Legio Custodes Telemon Heavy Dreadnought, along with a resin Telemon Caestus and resin Iliastus Accelerator Culverin with which to arm the model (in this case literally.)
Assemble 2 complete Telemon Heavy Dreadnoughts with this bundle – including weapons. In it, you’ll find 2 resin Legio Custodes Telemon Heavy Dreadnought bodies, along with 2 Telemon Caestus – one for each Dreadnought – and a weapon for each: 1 Iliastus Accelerator Culverin and 1 Arachnus Storm Cannon.
Fewer than a handful of Telemon Dreadnoughts are to be found within the ranks of the Legio Custodes. Rare is the foe who can stand against the array of esoteric, hand-crafted weapons that grace its chassis or the ferocious will and warrior skill of the master Custodian interred within.
This is a 4-component resin kit which allows you to build 1 Iliastus Accelerator Culverin, with 2 separate elbow guards making it possible to mount this weapon on either arm of a Telemon Heavy Dreadnought.
On Taros, the T’au deployed a new variant of the Tiger Shark. Codified as the AX-1-0, this heavily armed Tiger Shark replaced its drone racks and ion cannon with two heavy rail cannon and a seeker missile array. These massive weapons, usually mounted on the far larger Manta, turn the Tiger Shark into a formidable ground-attack craft, capable of engaging and destroying super-heavy tanks and Titans.
Designed to cut through the air like a knife while deploying the kind of apocalyptic weaponry that no craft of its sleekness and efficiency really has any business wielding, the T’au Tiger Shark AX-1-0 is a complete multi-part resin kit. It features several modelling options – there is a choice of either long-barrelled cyclic ion blasters or burst cannon for the wing-tip drones, and the undercarriage can be modelled open or closed. Struts and landing gear are supplied for the open undercarriage option, and there are recessed areas sculpted into the underside of the miniature – should you wish to use magnets in order to switch between the open or closed undercarriage at your leisure, the space is there.
Besides those options, the kit is covered in details; whilst obviously dominated by the 2 enormous heavy rail cannon (perfect for puncturing Titans), there are also 6 seeker missiles, upper and lower exhaust systems for each of the 2 engines, 2 electronic countermeasure pods and 2 chaff launchers.
This kit comes as 67 resin components. Rules are available in Imperial Armour – Index: Xenos.
Assemble a T’au Empire Airwing Detachment, as outlined in the Warhammer 40,000 book, with this set of 7 resin miniatures. It includes:

– 2 sets of 2 resin Remora Drone Stealth Fighters.
