News: Forge World Newsletter #350‏

More Horus Heresy awesomeness from Forgeworld this week with the release of the Palatine Blades of the Emperor's Children Legion alongside the Legion Mk IV Destroyer Squad with jump packs, two Legion Tartaros Terminator bundle sets and a Bolter pack for Legion Seeker squads.

Emperor's Children Legion Palatine Blade Squad
A warrior fraternity drawn from the finest swordsmen of the third Legion, the Palatine Blades existed outside of the rigid formations of the Emperor’s Children. They were a duelling society to whose ranks many aspired, and upon whom Fulgrim himself looked with particular favour.

Legion Mk IV Destroyer Squad with Jump Packs

The jump pack, common amongst Space Marine Assault squads, is sometimes utilised by Destroyer squads. The increased mobility they provide enables the Destroyers to deploy more rapidly into battlefield positions, unleashing their destructive arsenal upon the foe.

Legion Seeker Bolters Set
Seeker squad members are recruited from the finest shots in the Legion and tasked with the identification and elimination of the enemy's command structure. To aid them in the kill, Seeker squads are usually equipped with bolters loaded with special issue ammunition.

Legion Tartaros Terminator Bundles
Following on from the release of our Legion Tartaros Terminator kits last week, we can now announce the release of two new Legion Tartaros Terminator bundle sets.

Slick here again with the final results of this year’s TippCon! I apologize for the delay in getting these posted – too many real life commitments came up following the event. Without further ado, here we are:

Our TippCon Warmaster two years in a row is Aaron Aleong !

2 Dustin McClane             Chaos Space Marines                     Second in Command
                                                  With Chaos Demons

                                                  Space Marines

                                                with Demons

The old tournament powerhouses are still present with 4 Necron armies among the 20-player field (20%). Chaos Space Marines with Demons came very close to dethroning reigning champion Aleong but fell just short. Overall, there was not any hell chicken spam going on. Imperial Guard mixed with some Chaos made a strong showing with fourth overall. Orks made it into the top 8 as well. Two Tyranids also edged into the top 8 but fell quickly. A lone Sisters of Battle army nearly made the cut for top 8 ending up in 10th overall. Rounding out the rest of the field we had several Grey Knight players, some Eldar, a lone Space Wolf player along with a lone Tau, and one Dark Angels player.

Armies not present at all: Blood Angels, Black Templars, and Dark Eldar.

The top two lists for TippCon:

Necrons with Orks (Aaron Aleong)

Forgeworld: Glaive Tank

Space Marine Legion Glaive

The Legion Glaive Super-heavy Special Weapons Tank is a variant of the Fellblade. Armed with a Volkite Carronade, it is designed to destroy xenos beasts and incinerate enemy light vehicles at a single sweep.

While the Glaive has been issued to all eighteen Legiones Astartes in limited quantities, the Salamanders and Dark Angels have long been noted to field Glaives as a matter of course; the XVIIIth Legion’s artifice is more than sufficient to maintain and replicate the arcane Volkite technology, while the provenance and honour of the Ist Legion means that their war matériel and weaponry are ancient indeed.

The Legion Glaive, designed by 
Stuart Williamson, is a multi-part resin and plastic kit that is packed with detail. It is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 28th June and experimental rules to field this powerful super-heavy as part of a Space Marine Legion army are available to download now.
