GW Reveals New Horus Heresy Clade Venenum Assassin!

horus-heresy-icon-logo-wal-hor-titleThe Clade Venenum Assassin is joining the ranks as the newest operative for Horus Heresy and coming from Forge World- check it out!

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 actually expect the Vanus 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.

New Horus Heresy Clade Venenum Assassin Revealed!

Clade Venenum Assassin

It is said that the Assassins of the Clade Venenum had the highest success rate among the Terran Temples during the Age of Darkness. Their Assassins were selected from the finest alchemists who could create exotic concoctions that could cause death without leaving any metabolic trace.

Sometimes poison is the way to go if you need to take down some tough enemies! Especially with all the espionage and infiltration of the HH, this could be the perfect assassin to take down your foes!

Clade Venenum Assassin 2

The new miniature is cast in finely-detailed Forge World resin. In games it can unleash a toxin ejector and a hookfang to poison your enemies. The poison on the hookfang is so effective that it causes damage long after the initial attack. If the target is unfortunate enough to survive first contact, that is.

As one of Malcador’s agents, the Clade Venenum Assassin can be fielded by Loyalist forces, and rules for using them in games of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy will be available in Liber Imperium.

The model itself is actually pretty cool, and there is nothing wrong with adding more assassins to the ranks. They say it will be released soon for Forge World, but don’t give an exact date. However, a lot have been MTO orders recently, so just something to keep in mind.
