IIRC Imperial Army Hussars are horse cavalry (rough riders) in the fluff...

We've had horse-mounted Marines before, but I admit it's a tenuous link at best...

And the Deredeo already has rules, so what's going on with it (more weapon options perhaps)?

Was the missile rack thing already in an AoD book? Or, at least, are all the currently-produced weapons in HH books?

Checking the Red Book, the Boreas Air Defence Missiles & Volkite Falconet Battery are new. Wonder if we'll ever get the Atomantic pavaise...

Much obliged for the heads up! I had been scouring the internets desperately looking for any source of umbra bolters, they couldn't have reappeared at a better time <3

The umbra bolters are on preorder now, they will ship on the 28th of August. I have a feeling these will sell like hotcakes!

That’s surprising. Umbra bolter relaunch. They went LCTB a couple of years ago

Musta been a failing mould or something. If anything, I think Rogue Trader era stuff is just getting more in demand year after year, so I'd expect to see Mk VI marines and umbra bolters to be something that FW is going to offer always, along with the retro Rhino, Land Raider and Land Speeder.

It wouldn't surprise me if FW move to just producing 'alternative' or 'variant' models - things that don't require their own rules.

A book we already knew was coming but has been stuck at "Coming Soon" for ages. They gave a solid date, meaning it's ready.

Which is fairly newsworthy.

Indeed.
In fact I recall some people were worried that it could have been cancelled outright, it’s been delayed so long.

New terminators look great, but it’s more of the same.
They will likely be over priced for shooting or combat units and average in both sadly.

Likely going to be chainglaives, so AP3 sadly.
The Volkite is nice, but a support or heavy squad does more for less.

They need to either focus on one or the other, multi role units don’t do much.

Only saving grace could be options or chain/fist on them.


The blood angels terminators are a complete mess with situational rules that do nothing for them until it’s too late and poor upgrades. .
Hoping these are better.

Is this the official Forgeworld thread now, just renamed? I just went to their website for the first time in a while and it was requiring me to do one of those stupid captcha things (like click all the images with a bicycle in them) to prove I'm a human just to look at the website. Not to buy something or send them a question but just to look at the forgeworld.co.uk main front page. Is anyone else getting that and/or is it a new thing? Or is that a result of my ad blockers/antitracking browser extensions?

It's been happening the last couple of months - Dakka thread here.

Thanks. I was wondering if it was my recent browser update as I don't go there often. It's stupid to require it just to access the site to look at pretty pictures though I understand doing it for real interaction that requires a modicum of security.

So a 10" range culverin. Why oh why didn't they just leave it as a culverin?

Oh and a Mk VI Night Lord. So much for it being a rare pattern of armour, now everyone has it! You'd have thought that everyone would be in Mk V by now...

Every Legion field tested Mk6, but only the Raven Guard (and Alpha Legion) deployed on mass with it. So of course the NL's have some, and showing artwork of that pattern in that colour scheme means nothing.

Yeah - we're now at the point where every Legion used every version, but some had their preferences or more supplies than others. Indomitus Terminator Armor should be the most common, as Cataphractii was being phased out and Tartaros was just introduced but only the Iron Hands Gorgons are wearing it (and even that's a variant).

Raven Guard were the only Legion who were equiped Mk VI. Alpha Legion of course got a copy. So, I suppose they could have shared the wealth! it would be nice to see Mk V appearing a lot more. Especially considering it's called "Heresy" armour as well.

I do wonder if they're prepairing for a starter set with Mk VI armour?
