Another big online GW Preview for all things Warhammer is here! Catch all the latest reveals from Warhammer TV and Warhammer Community, along with our commentary! It looks like you’re in luck for those hoping for new models coming to Horus Heresy!
GW Warhammer Fest Preview
As with last year, there’ll be four full days of online reveals, each with a different theme. But Warhammer Fest has traditionally been an in-person event – and we’ll be back in the flesh this year, with a huge Horus Heresy open day on the final day at Warhammer World.
The action kicks off on the 4th of May, with a day dedicated to Warhammer 40,000 – including more than a few unexpected surprises. Warhammer Age of Sigmar gets the treatment on the 5th of May, with new units, new battletomes, and new characters. Then the 6th of May is skirmish day – a treat for fans of more than a few Warhammer game systems.
It’s good to see both AoS and 40k getting their own days because hopefully, this means tons of reveals along with Horus Heresy and Specialist Games.
Plastic Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
We saw rumors, and some leaks of this quite some time ago, but it’s good to see the Plastic Kratos Heavy Assault Tank is coming out for sure!
Alternatively, if you want to chew through massed ranks of enemy infantry, you can go with the volkite cardanelle. This giant heat ray will merrily melt the flesh from their lightly-armoured bones.
We hadn’t seen the weapons quite yet, so this is awesome! However, we’ve also seen rumored rules for the overall profile below!
You can see the guns are the same as they showed rules for, so we’d say these are pretty legit. One other thing to note, you have to pay for the third type of shell on the main cannon.

Horus Heresy Plastic Sicaran Kit
Originally designed by Roboute Guilliman and Ferrus Manus, the Sicaran featured elements from a number of STCs to create a high-speed destroyer tank to complement the Predator and Land Raider. Thanks to its incredible speed, it can outflank slower vehicles and bring its accelerator autocannon to bear on the weaker side and rear armour of enemy war machines.
The new kit is pretty sweet with, seemingly, a lot of fixes to the resin build. Most notably, the tracks. Plus, this has always been an awesome kit, but now that it’s in plastic, you should have a better hobby experience than before!
Beyond the giant autocannon, this new plastic kit comes with more weapons than you can shake a stick at. You can choose from heavy bolters, lascannons, heavy flamers, or volkite culverins as sponson weapons, and there is a choice of combi-weapons, a havoc launcher, a multi-melta, a heavy bolter, or a heavy flamer as a pintle-mounted weapon.
Hopefully, these will all be easily magnetized as well because, with all the options, you want to use them! The good thing is most time tanks are easy to future-proof, so we have high hopes for this one.
Rumors: Sicaran Horus Heresy Rules
They also list all the tank variants you can run, so that’s good to see. Overall the Sicaran seems to be fairly tough, has a lot of weapon options, and with a high movement, should be pretty useful for most legions in the new Edition of the Horus Heresy!
