As I took a look at the first of the photos in the drop box, I was struck by the awesome scenes from Istvaan III they had set for the event. How awesome is it to see the famous scenes from Heresy come to life in models specifically designed for that era?
Angron charging the breach at the front of his traitor sons! Why would he be scared of a few loyalists when he is rocking these stats:
|Very sneaky sir!|
Honestly, this continues on the chain of Forge World rules that really impress me. The rules are great and reflect what you would expect on the table, though he is not unkillable by any means. At 400 points, he also puts a dent in your army, but for the chance to field primarchs, I would drop as many points as possible. As a long-time Heresy fan, this truly is an exiting time to be in the hobby!
Legion Specific Contemptor Dreads are in the pipeline!
When they released the pre-heresy heavy weapon kits last year, I was underwhelmed by the old school heavy bolter ... they just made up for it with these awesome, drum-fed pieces of perfection!
More great stuff for the World Eaters!
Another scene featuring the former Warhounds.
Basically, the next roll of photos will be pre-heresy scenes, enjoy!
Alright, back to the action with the Death Guard, one of my personal favorite legions. The tactical squad looks great.
The armor has always impressed me but some of these upgrades really make individuals stand out.
As I look at the Death Guard, I really want to see what the studio does with Mortarion in terms of the model and the rules. I am sure he will be great, but I really want to see how the model just looks and how they plan to display his traits through his rules. I also just want to see him on the field with his personal body guard.
More of those great termies we saw earlier this week.
The Emperor's Children also have some representation. They look great in these more muted tones and I hope they make a Saul model!
The Sons of Horus look great (despite the fact that I really don't like their colors) and now that we know Loken made it into the rules, I am hoping a model will come down the pipe shortly.
Here are a few more great pr-heresy shots. We will bring you another post tonight with more pics from the event, but I really wanted to get these out.
A big thanks to our friend who took the shots. The connections we make in this hobby allow us to bring stuff like this to our readers. With that being said. What do you all think of what we have seen here?
