A new primarch is on the way this week from Forge World, and you are not going to want to miss the release of Rogal Dorn! Come find out what other releases are on the way as well.

The Horus Heresy and Necromunda Weekender gave us a look at a lot of new products on their way, and this week is the start of the release for Horus Heresy specifically. Let’s take a look at what will be available for pre-order this Friday.

Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists Legion £75

RogalDorn01

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 16th February 2018.

A being of thunderous zeal and stone made manifest, is how many described the Primarch of the VIIth Legion. The zeal was the fire of a son who believed in his father’s dream for the Imperium without reservation and without question. To Rogal Dorn there was no higher purpose to the existence of the Legiones Astartes than the unification of Mankind, and the illumination of the Imperium’s ideals. This idealism drove Dorn and his Legion ever onwards, never compromising, never stinting in any aspect of duty. The stone in his soul was his ability to bear whatever his father needed of him, an unyielding nature, which made him both a master of defence in war, and an indomitable fighter on the attack.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Rogal Dorn. This is a model of exceptional detail, befitting Dorn’s status – his auric armour is absolutely covered in beautiful sculpted details which add texture, from the large Imperial eagles, to the Imperial Fists crests, to the filigree and jewels. His bare head, with his expression set into a manly scowl, is framed by an eagle crest, and a large cloak billows behind him. His chainsword, Storm’s Teeth, is clutched in both hands, resting point-down on the concrete of the base. The Voice of Terra is stowed safely in a holster on his hip. There are 2 frag grenades, which you can choose to add to the model at your discretion.

Rogal Dorn is supplied as 24 parts, and comes with 2 bases – the first is a 40mm gaming base, which slots snugly into a 105x70mm oval diorama base. The diorama base features a series of concrete steps, with the body of a deceased Space Marine (and parts of another) lying at Dorn’s triumphant feet.

Rules for Rogal Dorn are can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions.

Rogal Dorn marks the start of these new releases and Forge World did an amazing job with his sculpt.  But he’s not the only one the way soon, check out the following weeks’ releases from the boutique resin maker.

Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes £60

ConstantinValdor01

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 30th March 2018.

Constantin Valdor sits at the right hand of the Emperor as perhaps His most trusted companion and guardian, a watchman of inviolable purpose and all but unmatched fighting skill. Such in fact is Valdor’s martial power and superhuman physical and mental abilities that there are those, even within the Imperial Court, who have in whispers called him ‘Primarch’ in all but name. This is no doubt a disingenuous claim, as for all his power Valdor was made and trained to serve a different and far more focused purpose, that of Lord Commander of the Custodian Guard, and to Valdor the petty concerns of conquest and glory, dominion and victory are as nothing when compared to his own sworn duty.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Constantin Valdor. This is an exceptionally detailed model, which painters will delight in tackling – there’s barely any flat surface at all on his ornate power armour, with skulls, eagles and lightning bolts modelled finely on every panel. Chains, furs and strips of cloth feature heavily, with even the greaves featuring sculpted buckles and faces. Over the left shoulder is mounted the head of some great horned creature, while a heavily augmented bird sits on the left. Constantin’s head is bare, with cabling running from his jaw and temples, connecting him to his power armour. He wields the Apollonian spear, which incorporates a bolter and a power blade capable of reducing anything it touches to its component molecules. The model’s base is made up of 3 components – a 40mm round base featuring rocks, ruins and remains upon which Constantin is posed, a 60mm scenic round base providing a backdrop, and a further outcrop which is used to lock the model into the latter.

Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes comes as 17 components. Rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno.

Space Wolves Legion Varagyr Terminators £60

VaragyrTerminatorSquad01

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 23rd February 2018.

The Varagyr are the chosen warriors of Leman Russ, hand picked from his own Great Company to form his personal guard and close companions in war and council. To have attained such a rank and position, each has distinguished himself in battle many times over, and each has forged his own saga worth the telling.

More so than any other of his sons they are the wolves of his pack, marked by the great beast pelt which adorns their armour, and to adopt this honour means more than simply to walk in the Wolf King’s shadow and lay down their lives for him if needs be, it means something much more. It means that at least for a time they have foregone the chance to lead their brothers in battle, to watch while others strike, to stand fast and not to seek out the glory of battle save when their lord commands. When such coldly withheld fury is unleashed however, it falls like a thunderbolt against the foe.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Space Wolves Legion Varagyr Terminators. Appropriate to their role as hand-picked guardians of Leman Russ, they wear heavy Terminator armour designed more for function than beauty – what decoration there is comes from the furs, pelts and fangs draped over their shoulders and tied to their waists. Their faces are partially obscured by splendid beards and wild hair, with large topknots billowing out behind them, and each miniature is armed with an axe and combi-bolter.

The Space Wolves Legion Varagyr Terminators come as 30 components, and are supplied with 5 40mm round bases. Their rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno.

Legio Custodes Shield Captain £30

CustodesShieldCaptain01

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 2nd March 2018.

Within the Legio Custodes, there exists a range of ranks and seniority of commands, far from transparent to outsiders, to which the more general application of ‘Shield Captain’ is applied, though within the Legio such ranks range from Prefect to Lictor, Proconsul to Tribune, following the ancient patterns of Terra’s lost history. Elevated both through the trust held among their peers for their judgement and skill, but first and foremost advanced by the direct approval and in some cases intervention of the Emperor Himself, these are warriors not only of consummate and superhuman ability, but also rare insight, acumen and knowledge. Afforded the rarest and finest of the Imperium’s arms, each of these legendary fighters commanded the Legio Custodes against all manner of threats against the Emperor, His works and His domains.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Legio Custodes Shield Captain. A model of exceptional detail, befitting his status as a senior commander of the Legio Custodes, every surface of his ornate power armour is broken up by rivets, plates and Imperial symbols, with the pauldrons and top plates being noticeably heftier than the already-impressive armour of his subordinates. Of particular note is the spiked and bejewelled halo above his unhelmeted head, which nicely frames the stoic scowl of leadership on display. He wears a large, flowing cloak, adding dynamic curves to the utilitarian lines of the model’s silhouette, and in his right hand wields an enormous guardian spear – from haft to point this is a truly impressive weapon. Included is a piece of rock for the base, which the Shield Captain is to be modelled standing atop.

The Legio Custodes Shield Captain comes as 9 components, and is supplied with a 40mm round base. Rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno.

Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers Upgrade Pack 1 £23

SpaceWolvesSlayersUpgradeOne01

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 23rd February 2018.

Under the leadership of Leman Russ, the Space Wolves Legion began to change, to become a hybrid of Fenris’ unforgiving way of battle and the patterns of Imperial military doctrine that had gone before. This new Space Wolves Legion was truly a refection of neither of those parents, but something new entirely, and the increasing use of so-called Grey Slayer units was perhaps one of the most visible outward signs of this transformation. The Grey Slayers were, in effect, compact individual warbands of Space Marines, all but autonomous in their own right in the field: fluid, sure-footed and largely exempt from the reliance on direct commands from above. They were expected to deal with myriad challenges on their own if needs be, and above all to close with the enemy on their own terms; to seek and destroy.

Upgrade a set of 5 MKIII Space Marines to Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers with this set of resin components. It contains:

– 5 shoulder pads;
– 5 shields;
– 5 axes;
– 5 right arms;
– 5 left arms;
– 1 banner;
– 1 Sergeant torso;
– 8 heads.

Legio Custodes Adrasite Spears £15

AdrasiteSpears02

Coming soon – This product will be available to order from 2nd March 2018.

The signature weapon of the Legio Custodes and in many ways their symbol of office is the Guardian spear. Elegant and deadly, it is a potent and unique design incorporating a power blade and a highly advanced integrated bolter weapon, and in the hands of a Custodian Guard it can strike and parry at blinding speed despite its size. More rarely, these weapons mount not bolters but advanced specialised sub-weapons such as compact meltas or even Adrathic disintegration beamers, issued against the deadliest of expected foes – this variant is the Adrasite Spear, featuring an Adrathic Destructor.

This kit contains 5 resin adrasite spears, which can be used to upgrade a set of 5 plastic Adeptus Custodes Custodian Guard.

Rules for using these weapons can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno.
