GW Reveals Another New Horus Heresy Assassin!

horus-heresy-icon-logo-wal-hor-titleThe newest operative for Horus Heresy is coming from Forge World as the Clade Adamus Assassin is joining the ranks soon!

For the last assassin they previewed, they didn’t directly say whether it would be from Forge World or in plastic, but for this one, they do say resin. So we would expect the previous Venenum assassin to be resin as well, which you can check out here.

Warhammer Community unveiled the new mini and what to expect with the model! Let’s check it out.

Forge World Horus Heresy Clade Adamus Assassin!

Assassin Horus Heresy

Nothing demonstrates the lengths that either side would go to in order to win the civil war better than the assassins deployed in the Horus Heresy. We’ve seen the Clade Infocyte Assassin, who uses information as a weapon, and the maestro of terrible toxins – the Clade Venenum Assassin. Now, it’s time to meet the final Loyalist Assassin – the Clade Adamus Assassin.

The Adamus Clade is believed to be the oldest of the formal orders of Assassins, and its operatives are experts in the art of the decapitation strike – proving that old Terran adage about the body dying if you can kill the head. They study how their enemies fight, noting their strengths and learning their weaknesses, which they ruthlessly exploit. In-game, the Clade Adamus Assassin is fast and absolutely lethal in melee, able to go toe-to-toe with almost any foe – and defeat them with their nemesii blade. 

This is a pretty cool mini, and if you need to take out enemy characters, this will be the assassin to do it! Plus, you might have to add a kill tally somewhere on the mini whenever he kills someone in-game.

While it might not be quite interesting as the other clades who use poison and such, sometimes having an old-fashioned assassin is just the way to go.

Assassin Horus Heresy 2

This new miniature is cast in finely detailed resin and will be available soon from Forge World. 

Loyalist players can add Clade Adamus Assassins to their forces in Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, and rules for using them will be available in the forthcoming Liber Imperium book.

As we said, this will be from Forge World and in resin, but considering this is the last of the assassins in this line (at least from the sounds of it), we expect to see all of them pretty soon! However, a lot have been MTO releases from Forge World recently too, so just something to keep in mind.
