Next Week’s Preorders: Reinforcements for Horus Heresy! Glorfindel for Middle-Earth!
All of the below is up for preorder next weekend. Make sure you preorder through our Element Games links to help to keep us doing what we are doing!
So much Horus Heresy stuff up for preorder next week, especially in the armour department!
Of course, they can also be used in 40k too!
He may have only just been announced, but the new resin Glorfindel is also up for preorder next week too!
All of the following is courtesy of Warhammer Community:
Sicaran Battle Tank
One of the signature tanks of the Legiones Astartes, the Sicaran Battle Tank is swift and deadly – and will be available in plastic for the first time. Along with its eye-catching autocannon array, it comes with four different sets of sponson weapons and a choice of nine pintle-mounted guns, giving you the right tool for any job.
Spartan Assault Tank
Get your elite warriors into battle in style and safety with the rumbling Spartan Assault Tank. This massive transport can carry a whopping 26 troops right into the heart of battle, and comes with a variety of weapon and cosmetic options.
The hulking Contemptor Dreadnought is an iconic unit for Space Marines in the Age of Darkness, and with good reason. This adaptable war machine can be armed to complement any playstyle – like to stand off and shoot? It can do that. Would you rather get up close and personal? No worries. Prefer a mix of both? The Contemptor has you covered.
The kit includes eight different guns and a pair of fists – and you’ll be able to pre-order the weapon frames separately, allowing you to double-up on the same weapon to assemble a specialist Dreadnought. One sprue contains an extra autocannon, bolt cannon, lascannon, and melta cannon, along with a spare fist and an extra pair of arms.
The other frame includes an extra conversion beam cannon, plasma cannon, kheres assault cannon, and volkite dual-culverin, plus a spare fist, chainfist blades, and loads of cosmetic bits.
Either way, you’ll have all sorts of bits left over to equip even more Dreadnoughts!
Leviathan Siege Dreadnought
If the Contemptor is somehow not big enough for you, the Leviathan has got you covered. The close-combat variant is already available, and now its ranged brother is coming to bring devastation to the battlefields of the Age of Darkness.
The Leviathan Siege Dreadnought with Ranged Weapons comes with three different arm-mounted guns for you to choose from – and the ranged weapons frame is also available separately. Grab a sprue for your ranged Leviathan to double-up on guns, or combine it with the close combat frame to build the versatile Leviathan of your dreams.
Cataphractii Terminator Squad
Cataphractii Terminators are the elite infantry of the Legiones Astartes. Widely used by all Legions, they’re effective in melee and at range, and their heavy armour shrugs off all but the most massive enemy weaponry. While these hefty warriors were first deployed in the Horus Heresy, they can also be used as Relic Terminators in games of Warhammer 40,000.
Tartaros Terminator Squad
More advanced than Cataphractii plate, Tartaros armour offers superior protection to power armour while sacrificing none of its mobility. Like their Cataphractii cousins, the Tartaros Terminators now come in boxes of 10, with a host of melee and ranged weapon options – and can also be fielded by Space Marines armies in the 41st Millennium.
The two Praetors found in the Age of Darkness boxed set are available separately for the first time. One’s brandishing a sword, the other wields an axe, and both include a helmeted and bare head option. The miniatures feature no Legion-specific markings, so you can easily field them in any force.
Iron Warriors Upgrades
This coming weekend sees pre-orders for two sets of upgrades for the Iron Warriors. You’ll be able to customise the sons of Perturabo with both helmets and shoulder pads with sculpted Legion icons. These resin upgrade kits are designed to work perfectly with the plastic Mark VI Tactical Squad.
Age of Darkness Armigers
Offer your Questoris Households army some mobile support in the form of a pair of Armiger-class Knights, which you can build as either autocannon-wielding Helverins or melee-specialist Warglaives. You’ll also find a new sheet of Age of Darkness-era transfers – heraldry has changed quite a bit in the 10,000 years between the Horus Heresy and the Era Indomitus.
Liber Mechanicum: Forces of the Omnissiah Army Book
This is the first of the non-Astartes army books for Warhammer: The Horus Heresy. Inside, you’ll find all the rules and profiles you need to field an army of mechanical monstrosities, from lowly cyborg thralls to mighty robots – as well as the towering engines of the Questoris Households and Titan Legions. If you’re collecting a Mechanicum army, or plan to start, you’ll need a copy of this essential tome. It will be available as both a hardback and eBook.
That’s a LOT of releases for Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, but there are still more to come – sign up for our newsletter to get all the latest information from the Age of Darkness sent straight to your inbox.
The newest warband for Warhammer Underworlds: Nethermaze belongs to the Order of Azyr, a shadowy organisation charged with purging evil across the Mortal Realms by any means necessary. Led by a witch-hunter, this aggressive warband uses faith and fast strikes (and a pair of dogs) to persecute their mission, and they grow stronger as their allies are picked off. Along with the miniatures, you’ll get a Rivals deck so you can get them on the tabletop straight away, plus universal cards which any warband can use.
The Elven Union is the latest team to be updated for the Second Season Edition of Blood Bowl. Their redesigned pitch gives them home-field advantage and includes special rules for the winds of magic blowing around the stadium. Ensure your luck stays in with the team dice, and easily keep track of your players using the team card pack.
t’s already been a huge day for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game – check out the online preview if you missed it earlier – and some of the miniatures we revealed will be available to pre-order next weekend.
Glorfindel, Lord of the West
Considered by many to be the greatest warrior living in Rivendell, Glorfindel can slice and dice his way across the battlefield thanks to his impressive Fight value. At the same time, his ostentatious Armour of Gondolin protects him from reprisals. Glorfindel comes mounted and on foot, giving you options for how to field this mighty Hero.
Guards of the Galadhrim™ Court
These are the elite warriors of Lothlórien, striking down their foes with elaborate pikes while maintaining their distance. If you need to defend the Golden Wood, the Guards of the Galadhrim Court make a fine last defence against the forces of Evil.
Rúmil and Orophin
Staying in the woods, these brothers have fighting styles that perfectly complement each other. Rúmil has mastered the art of defensive combat while Orophin is a whirl of blades, cutting down any who would challenge him.
These resin miniatures for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game will be available to pre-order from Friday – sign up for the Forge World newsletter to keep up to date with all of the latest releases
