Thunderhawks wallpaper Forge worldWe’re seeing the new Termite finally available for pre-order from Forge World. Plus, we look back at the latest previews of upcoming releases from them as well.

Now available for pre-order are the following new releases from Forge World:

Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill £75

TermiteAssaultDrill

A specialised transport vehicle, the Termite is capable of deploying a full squad of warriors onto the battlefield whilst bypassing enemy fortifications and sentries. It is capable of tunnelling rapidly through even the densest of materials at speeds comparable to surface transport craft, thanks to the grinding drill of the Termite which utilises a linked array of melta-cutters and phase-shield generators to aid in its progress. Once at its target location, it emerges onto the surface, or even directly into the lower level of macrofortifications, scattering nearby enemies with its melta-cutters before disgorging its deadly cargo.

TermiteAssaultDrill

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill. Designed with practicality in mind, this vehicle eschews the aggressive look of many of its contemporaries – spending much of its time underground, this drill is more concerned with moving earth than striking fear into the enemy. As such, it is essentially a long capsule – able to transport up to 12 models – with 5 sets of tracks along its body, which serve both to pull it along the tunnels it digs and deposit rocks and earth behind it. At the rear is the engine assembly, with covers and exhaust, but the front is where the real fun is to be had – an enormous drill assembly takes up the whole of the vehicle’s front, with 4 rings of blades giving way to a large ring of grinders and crushers. 2 weapons can be mounted, either side of the drill assembly – you have the choice of included heavy flamers, volkite chargers or twin-linked bolters, and a hatch on the hull can be modelled closed or open.

TermiteAssaultDrill

The Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill comes as 39 components. Rules for fielding this model in games of Warhammer 40,000 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.

Subterranean Assault Group £225

TermiteAssaultDrill06

Pick up 3 Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drills – specialised transport vehicles capable of deploying a full squad of warriors onto the battlefield whilst bypassing enemy fortifications – with this bundle, and enjoy free standard shipping!

SubterraineanAssault

Included:

– 3 Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drills: each essentially a long capsule, able to transport up to 12 models, with 5 sets of tracks along their bodies. 2 weapons can be mounted, either side of the drill assembly – you have the choice of included flamers, volkite chargers or heavy bolters, and a hatch on the hull can be modelled closed or open.

Rules for fielding these models in games of Warhammer 40,000 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.

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

ConstantinValdor01

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.

Constantin Valdor

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.

The Shield of the Emperor £258

ShieldoftheEmperor01

Assemble a mighty army – 1500 points, indeed – of Legio Custodes for use in games of The Horus Heresy, led from the front by the impressively powerful Constantin Valdor. With this bundle – which includes free express shipping – you’ll receive:

– Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes – the leader of this army, carrying the Apollonian spear, which incorporates a bolter and a power blade. He comes with a 3-part base – one for gaming and a larger scenic base, which this slots into when the model is not in use;
– A set of 3 Aquilon Terminators, each armed with a solerite power gauntlet, with an option of adrathic destructor or lastrum storm bolter in the other hand. 3 different helmets are included, with one bare head option;

AdrasiteSpears01

– A set of 3 Aquilon Terminators with infernus firepikes – these are armed with infernus firepikes, and again 3 different helmets are included, with one bare head option;
– 2 sets of 5 plastic Custodian Guard, 2 of which can be assembled as a shield-captain, featuring a cloak and choice of 2 heads, and 2 can carry a Custodes Vexilla;
– 2 sets of weapon upgrades for the Custodian Guard: a set of 5 adrasite spears, and a set of 5 pyrithite spears.

The wait is finally over and the new Termite and Valdor models are finally available! If one Termite won’t cut it then you can pick up a three pack, and if you need more of a Custodes fix you can pick up the Shield of the Emperor bundle which includes Valdor and 16 additional models with two weapon upgrade sets. These look like they’re going to be great additions to your army. Make sure you head over to Forge World and pre-order yours today!new forge world logo

We’ve been getting a lot of previews lately of what’s on the way from Forge World. Earlier this week we saw the announcement of new weapon packs for House Goliath that will be available for pre-order soon.

With House Escher now armed to the teeth with a vastly extended range of weaponry, it’s high time the Goliaths evened the odds with an expanded arsenal of their own. Soon, you’ll be able to pick up three new weapon packs, each absolutely crammed with deadly new gear for your gang:

We don’t have a release date for these new House Goliath weapon packs, just that they’ll be available for pre-order soon.

We also got a preview recently of an old Rogue Trader model that is going to be getting revamped, and available for a limited time.

Very soon, the Land Speeder will be receiving similar treatment, as this classic design is brought to life in glorious resin. The new Forge World Land Speeder captures the spirit of its progenitor perfectly – while the mould lines may be crisper and the detail a lot sharper, there’s no mistaking the influence of Rogue Trader here:

So there you have it, Constantin Valdor is finally available, and we’ve seen a lot of nice previews of what’s to come for Forge World.
