This weekend was the Warhammer World re-opening day and from what we saw from afar it looked to be an amazing event. Of particular interest was finally getting to see the new Warlord Titan complete, assembled and a few of them painted and they looked epic!
And someone was nice enough to snap a photo of the stats from the next Horus Heresy book, This will be a hard nut to crack with a base armour of 15, 30 Hull points and from the images above looks like 8 void shields. In a 30k Game it is nearly indestructable without other Titans (as it should be), and even in the current Eldar 40k meta at the moment, with more D than you can shake a stick at, it is still formidable.
Not to overshadow this, Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines and Sigismund, First Captain of the Imperial Fists, were also on sale. They look amazing! ForgeWorld have really captured the essence of the Primarch and the first Captain.
There were a couple of things which sneaked under the radar with a Chaos Knight conversion kit, a legs conversion kit for the Lord of Skulls, and a Nurgle (Demon Prince/ Grater Demon thing).
Many thanks to everyone who posted pictures during the event especially @Dark_Spartan_UK, @OnTheLam, @blacklibrarium, @lillegendstudio, and Rictus over on recalcitrantdaze for his amazing high-res pictures from the day.
Today’s ForgeWorld bulletin revealed an update to the WarLord Titan, and if you hadn’t realised yet, it’s going to be big.
This has been the week of great reveals, while it has been discussed for a while, we now have images of the new Cult Mechanicus models to be released very soon.
In addition to this we also seem to have a new set of brushes coming from the Citadel Studios. This one seemed to sneak under the radar, which should not be supprising considering the wealth of rumours above.
As these are leaked images of the new White Dwarf, they are pretty much confirmed. Today the Games Workshop website seemed to be displaying an error.
This error seems to confirm the Warden rumours, while the link does lead to a 404 error page it is an interesting confirmation, I’m looking forward to the coming weeks.
This week I have been putting life into the unloved grey plastic terrain for my gaming table. In addition to this I made a little progress on the base of my Tau Barracuda, I just need to finish painting the model itself.
Today’s ForgeWorld newsletter, covering the recent Salute weekend contained a small section referencing the last few seconds from the ForgeWorld visual feed. Those few seconds gave us a glimpse of a would be Warlord Titan, an amazing prospect in all rights.
There was a lot of speculation, as to if this was actually a Warlord or a new pattern of Knight Titan, that was until they looked closer at the video which seemed to indicate the new model dwarfed a Reaver Titan. Today, the ForgeWorld newsletter gave us all confirmation of a something very, very big being worked on in the studio, and now with a scale reference. Check it out.
I like many other #Warmongers are excited to see this project completed, though we can only guess at the price…
Today, Forgeworld released a new video for their 5th book in the Horus Heresy series: Tempest
A Storm is Coming
But the internet is a wash with speculation about the last 20 seconds of the video, where it appears to show a new Warlord Titan.
My initial impression was that this was a new Knight Titan variant like a combination of a Knight Titan and a Thanatar with the shoulder mounted weapon. Then it was pointed out to me that at 0:58 you can see the shoulder of the new titan, is easily half again bigger than a Reaver titan and as the titan scale image by awaken realms image below shows it could not be a Knight, it has to be something new.
I’m looking forward to this, time to start saving…
