They are kind of in a class of their own. But you have legions like Sons of Horus with 3 named models and a legion command, Imperial fists with 2 named characters, legion command, and 2 praetors, Word bearers with 3 named characters and 2 praetors. Meanwhile Ultramarines were the last to get a Contemptor dreadnought, and the Iron Hands one is terrible, and they both have a single model (event herald for ultramarines and iron father for Iron hands) the Raven Guard and Iron Warriors don't even have that.

Iron Warriors have Narik Dreygur, right? And the legion praevian but that is available to all legions?

Not for sale anymore, as far as I know.

Actually, there doesn't seem to be much at all for sale anymore for IWs at the FW store.

Narik was an event exclusive alongside Autilon Skorr. Models go for a pretty penny these days...

Which honestly sucks, speaking as an Alpha Legion player. Skorr has rules, so does Narik. Why on earth somebody thought it was a good idea to produce two character sculpts and then make them limited edition event-only models I'll never know. I wouldn't mind if those both got a re-release.

The Alpha Legion praetors are still in line with the old plastics. So this must've been a very recent decision.

With the "Siege of Terra" header introduced, does that lead more credence a possible new HH boxed set?

Last info on it was June/July but I haven't been able to find anything about it since then.

I mean we've seen the pics, so we know it is coming. We just don't know when. It's a bit weird that GW hasn't announced anything as the leak was so long ago. They often respond to big leaks like that by previewing something official.

October was always the rumoured release date for the new box so I expect we will see it announced in a couple of weeks. Any big shows coming up?

Gathering the Informations.


Wonder if this is a tease of what might be coming?

He also notes that each scenario is lifted from existing Horus Heresy lore and is much more than a throwaway.

“The aim with this series is to give players everything they’d get out of a black book, only condensed down to a handful of pages. You’ll find a description of the battle, written by the Horus Heresy team writers after having undertaken extensive research of the source material or talking to the Black Library authors.”

Each Exemplary Battle campaign will contain an army list entry, empowering you to build and play a unit detailed in the battle’s lore, as well as photographs of one or more examples of the new unit, painted by keen hobbyists from around the Forge World studio.


I really, really, really like this concept.

I'd expect the new HH box being announced in some sort of twitch stream. When they announce the next one, there's some chance that we will see the HH box then, or at least get some teaser about it.

The new upscaled firstborn cant come soon enough. I've already stopped buying any more marine kits until we have confirmations about the new kits, and some scale comparison pics to go with them would be nice as well.

Knowing GW, they'll probably tease the box at the very end of a Twitch stream (and use the exact same images we've already seen )

I must be one of the few people who dont mind scale changes right next to old marines.
If you mix squads it might be a problem, but it weems to me, overhead and playing on a table, it isnt a big deal

Don’t quote me on this, but I think you can still get them from Warhammer World? You certainly could at one point, but not visited in a decent while.

Gotta say, this sounds like the most fun and balanced scenario since the Massacre at Sanctuary 101.

I wonder which side I should play?

If HH playerbase taught me anything, it's that everyone always goes for the OP winning side in anything vaguely narrative.
