The FW weapons came with the weapon, elbow, and shoulder part with insert.

The plot thickens, the Contemptor weapon sprues are being sold individually.

There is also an "Ultimate loadout" Contemptor and Leviathan option with 2 of each weapons sprue. Assuming that is just a webstore bundle and not a different sku for FLGS release.

Does raise the issue of there being no shoulder joint bits on weapon sprue 2 though, an odd choice to leave off such a small part when you assume the idea was to replace the retired FW resin weapons. There will be some confused and disappointed hobbyists out there.

Daft given they got it right with the shoulder joint being on both the Ranged and close combat Leviathan sprues.

The preorder article last week pretty clearly stated re: Contemptor weapons that "you’ll be able to pre-order the weapon frames separately". The way they've set up the second sprue is pretty bizarre.

Still a few hours until preorders go up here, so plenty of time to agonise about whether to bother buying a Sicaran. Rules are pretty lackluster in 2.0 and I'm tempted to wait to see if they sell the Omega turret in plastic/separately as a resin piece. The baseline Sicaran is such an iconic tank though.

Hmmm. I think its because the HH base box comes with weapon frame 1 (and the full kit comes with both). You really can't end up without the shoulders. I don't think the FW weapons are a consideration for this kit or frames at all.


I need to sit down and do some planning (do I need a third contemptor + an extra of sprue 2, or just 2x sprue 2, basically), but this arrangement works for me.

True, but given they retired the resin Contemptor weapons but not the bodies it should have been. And they are not really explicit in explaining it.

Say I buy an Emporers Children resin Dread and 2 of weapon sprue 2 to give it double Kheres...I have all the bits bar the small shoulder joint that attaches the weapon to the shoulder. Bizarre. £74 spent on incomplete kit and you have to turn to 3d printing or sculpt your own.

That part you are talking about is very easy to fabricate with plastic tube, I've made some that are near 1:1 copies of the resin bits.

I think though the issue is is that he will spend a large amount of money, ans still have to make a part from plastic tube when a spare set of shoulder joints could be put on the weapon sprues to begin with to avoid all this.
Poor planning I would guess, rather than evil intent.

If I spent that sort of money on any hobby and had to make my own part to use it properly, I would not be impressed.

Here is my unboxing & review of the plastic Sicaran: https://taleofpainters.com/2022/08/review-horus-heresy-sicaran-battle-tank-plastic/

Also includes high-res sprue pics. Quite a nice model I have to say

Seems like the arm pieces on the ranged Leviathan have recesses so should be as easy to magnetize as the Contemptor
Guns have the same 4x2mm holes as the Contemptor arms and the Leviathan arm recesses seems to be about 5x1mm

Another interesting titbit is that it sounds like he got this box before the melee version was even announced which makes me think it was supposed to release with the initial wave or shortly after but something happened and it had to be delayed

Thank you for your contribution to this thread and the others Stahly. It's always welcome to have a good written review of the kit on hand.

That is odd, weird given that the Liber Hereticus showed off the melee plastic Leviathan (SoH section) and not the ranged one IIRC. Ash did well to sit on that kit for so long.

I am now 3 Contemptor's Closer to a Fury Of The Ancients list after pre ordering this morning.

Have got to laugh at the Contemptor Dreadnought Ultimate Loadout bundle though...£68 GW retail for 1 Dread and 4 weapons frames. Pay an extra £4 and just buy 2 Contemptors for 2 Dreads and 4 weapons frames...absolute no brainer. Or just go to your online retailer of choice and get 2 Dreads for sub £60.

The mechanicum book is very tempting and might jump in later depending on future releases.

If you ask me (and I appreciate nobody did), it’s a missed opportunity to add some of the 40K Mechanicus kits into the Mechanicum. If anybody should be using the same tech for 10,000 years it’s the Martians. We’re expected to believe that some of their gear comes from the Dark Age of Technology, but it was all in for a service during the Age of Darkness.

As it stands I’ve no interest in collecting marines and no interest in an army of unbelievably expensive resin.

No really, I’m a big, big fan of the Horus Heresy books. I’ve not read then all, but I must have read around 30 ish of them. My favourite characters are always the ones who aren’t marines though. If there was a cheaper, more plasticy way of collecting Mechanicum or Solar Auxilia, I’d be all over it.

Mechanicum and Solar Auxilia are the two worst options for HH as it stands. Every other army has a plethora of plastic options but those two are FWs babies.
There are some things that can work for Mechanicum but you lose the specific FW aesthetic if you do so and can't fill out a list larger than about 1k points.

I'm sure it was (un)intentional....

How else are they gonna get people to buy the removed ones???

As someone who owns more Armigers(6:1) than Questoris I can feel someone's pain, cuz now I need to fill out the bigger guys.

Armigers are 1 model/unit (base - more can be added if desired) so one box covers one knight. Hope that helps everyone’s calculations.

A little annoying that the Mechanicum stuff is delayed in the US. They could at least have gone ahead with allowing US customers to preorder the epub book. Not that I have an epub-capable tablet, but it still feels like GW is giving the finger to those who could have gotten it.

I’m all for Heresy having its own flavour and aesthetic, that’s why I hate the idea of loyalist Primarchs in 40K so much
I just think that maybe Mechanicum should be the one exception. It feels wrong to me that Heresy era Mechanicum and 40K Ad Mech are so very different, when they ought to be very similar. Perhaps even identical.

If they ever get round to plastic Solar Auxilia though, I’m in!

Plastic tercios would be awesome, but probably not happening any time soon, that Solar Auxilia is getting its own book is amazing however.

Also quite surprised that the Sicaran kit hasn't sold out yet.

It all just depends how many they made.

But also perhaps so many people now have Spartans for their armies they aren't ready for a 2nd largish tank? Or maybe it's not as well liked aesthetically? I know the Sicaran doesn't do much for me, I'd rather have a Predator squadron.

Does anybody know if the Sicaran Omega turret is available separatly? I would really love one for my dark angels (yay plasma) but I don't want to buy the resin tank as the plastic is available. Searching on the forgeworld page only led my to the complete tank, not the turret

Nope, the Sicaran has always been hull+main gun as one kit. If they change this in future I would expect them to announce it.
