DEATH FROM THE SHADOWS...
It wasn’t so long ago that the Raven Guard Legion got a host of new upgrade kits. Judging by what I saw in the Forge World Studio this week, it looks to me like there’s more on the way soon for the XIXth Legion.



This new squad looks perfect for the masters of stealth.
And that’s not all. If you’re working on a Raven Guard army then you might want to hold off on painting all those Legion symbols by hand as it seems that there are some fantastic looking Raven Guard transfers being readied for printing.



Transfers are perfect for adding detail to your Legion.
Warhammer World had some fantastic Forge World tanks on display recently when they held their first Golden Demon event. You may have seen a few of them in a previous Forge World Bulletin. Here’s a few more of my favourites, including the Slayer Sword-winning Death Guard Legion Fellblade by Richard Grey. You can check out more awesome war machines at the Warhammer World website.


Death Guard Legion Fellblade: Richard Grey.

Death Guard Predators: Dean Walton.
You may have already seen that Warscroll Compendiums for Tamurkhan’s Horde and The Legion of Azgorh are available to download. Now we’ve made it even easier for you to add their monsters and warriors to your Warhammer Age of Sigmar Army, you’ll find all of the Warscrolls available on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar app. Download it now!

That’s all from me for now. Make sure you check back soon for more from the Forge World Studio

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
Children worship their toys. They ask of them what Men have always asked of their Gods: joy and forgetfulness.
New theory: "It's Raining Men" and "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor" are both accounts of the same event but from wildly different perspectives.

The Raven Guard looks very cool, although his bolter looks stupid.
Giant scope and barrel, still firing from the hip.

Edit: Is the scope blocked by the iron sights of the bolter? If so - lol.

Given the strength of a Marine, there's no need for him to brace it at the shoulder, and if one assumes the scope is somehow linked to the targeter on his eye, there's no need to use that either. He can probably just 'look' where he wants to shoot (via the scope-camera projected through the eye lens) and pull the trigger.

Awesome looking mini, though!

Yeah that bolter does look stupid. Giant bolter with little skinny barrel and side mounted scope...

It actually looks like there are two different scopes on the Bolter, and if you look close there seems to be a kind of "snap" where they could potentially be rotated into place.

I'd have to shorten the length of the barrel on the bolter, but other than that, I'm digging the Raven Guard marine.

I would have preferred if they had tapered the barrel off a bit instead of it looking like a kitbash but I'm glad the raven guard are getting some attention though.

This RG kit looks different from the generic Legion MKIV Recon Squad kit so it's a dedicated kit, not an upgrade.

Hey, that looks like a really neat sniper rifle. Use to build better SM scouts?

I get that it's supposed to be a unique Raven Guard unit and that the general way to distinguish these specialists from the regulars is to cake them in iconography, but it seems rather inappropriate here.

Don't get me wrong it looks great (barrel length aside), but I'm getting the impression that they're supposed to be some sort of sniper/stealth unit, in which case I'd expect them to be a as plain as possible.

Those eye bionics are perfect and I'll be looking to snaffle up the helmets from bits sites if nothing else.

I dunno, I think the bling balance is pretty good on that model. Stealth power armour is a weird concept anyway, and in the books the stealthiest raven guard have borderline supernatural stealth abilities.

The sniper bolters always look gak, glad to see we haven't broken from tradition there. I still think anvil industry's black ops snipers are the best power armour stealth/sniper models out there. http://www.anvilindustry.co.uk/Exo-Lords/Black-Ops/Black-Ops-Sniper-Recon-Team

It's not that weird of a concept. For the most part, the stealth power armor has ceramite coated with a material that absorbs/reflects detection methods and the joints are basically "silenced"--but is still highly visible to the naked eye if someone's alert to the possibility.

Hence the camo cloak on top of the armor.

Those are nice, but really it's just a suppressed modern day designated marksman rifle.

These bolters that we're seeing here are something new entirely from what I can tell. There is a lot more going on that usually isn't going on in the examples of "Stalker" pattern boltguns we've seen.
For example? It looks to have a bipod underneath the bolter casing--and there is a rather large "box" extending where there usually is the ejection ports for a boltgun.

Who's to say the iconography will be actually blinged?

Raven Guard stuff tends to be plain--even the ornate metallic parts are done in simple gunmetal for the Centurion example we got in C: SM

Rule-wise that's a sniper rifle and not a bolter. The Mor Deythan do not have access to regular bolters, though they are allowed to take combi-weapons.

Looks to me that is a device for catching spent round casings so he can run, gun and stay stealth at the same time.

Because those things mingle.
