Default Forgeworld Update 28/3/13

Legion MkIII Breacher Squad

Combat that takes place during boarding actions amid the cold void, or into a breached fortification, can prove lethal beyond even the endurance of the Legiones Astartes. For this reason, specialised formations and wargear have been continually developed to better survive these ‘Zones Mortalis’ since the earliest days of the Great Crusade.

The Breacher Siege Squad is one such unit. Clad in augmented power armour based on the Iron pattern and bearing great ablative shields, these squads act as a vanguard in such lethal missions, and are often additionally equipped with powerful breaching charges and lascutters or melta weapons to destroy strongpoints and forge a path for the force’s main strength to follow.

The Legion Breacher Siege Squad contains five multi-part resin models in modified MkIII ‘Iron’ armour, equipped with detailed boarding shields. The squad contains five Phobos-patter bolters, as well as an optional lascutter, breaching charge and graviton gun. Models designed by Will Hayes. Available to pre-order now for despatch from the 5th of April.

Personal note: Love the way they've done the Iron Hands there, have they done a green or blue wash over the steel colour?

Legion Reconnaissance Squad

Space Marines experienced in operating independently and behind enemy lines form dedicated Reconnaissance squads within the Legiones Astartes. Equipped with a variety of specialised wargear including long-range sniper weapons, stealth gear, and augmented sensor-auspex devices, Legion Recon Squads function as scouts, gathering intelligence and mapping enemy movements and strengths.

Reconnaissance squads also serve their Legion as pickets, saboteurs, raiders and snipers where needed, striking at high-value targets of opportunity. In open battle, they are expert in sudden flanking manoeuvres and infiltration attacks in support of the main strength of the Legion.

Designed by Mark Bedford and Will Hayes, the Legion MKIV Recon Squad contains five multi-part resin models, each of which has two different weapon options; a sniper rifle or a shotgun. These models are packed with detail, from the long-range communications and targeting equipment carried by each legionary to their camo demi-cloaks. Available to pre-order now for despatch from the 5th of April.

Mechanicum Thallax Cohort

The Thallaxii are heavily augmented cyborg shock-troops used by the Mechanicum Ordo Reductor, and they differ from the Skitarii regiments both in purpose and the unique degree of their augmetics. The Lorica Thallax was developed from power armour technology and requires a robust human specimen.

The Lorica encloses the major organs, nervous system and cerebrum, but entirely replaces the skeletal structure and limbs with armoured bionics powered by an internal reactor-core. Surgical excision of the subject’s pain sensors, emotions, and normal human sensory apparatus and the agony caused by the Lorica’s implantation, leaves the Thallax a cold, calculating killing machine (albeit one that retains a degree of independent thought).

To some among the Mechanicum, this operation skirts the edge of abomination, yet the baleful Ordo Reductor continue Thallax conversion regardless; using suitable Forge Guard, fallen Skitarii, and other subjects obtained from more mysterious sources.

Ahhhh ninga'd, curse my ogryn computer skills, anywhooo, they all look sweet especially the Thallax cohort, at the moment I'm converting bolters from my regular scouts into sniper rifles just like those recon marines, an easy job so I'd rather convert marines than buy these but cool models all the same

Not sure whatever I like or dislike the Mechanicum Thallax Cohort, but its Mechanicum stuff, so I wont complain. Maybe a proper Mechanicum army is not too far away then.

The Space Marines are awesome. That one sniper guys head looks sort of derp, but othervise I am liking it. Especially the Breacher Squad.

Mmmmm....that's some good Forgeworld!

I guess they may be painting up some units in for the next Horus Heresy book based on the Legion Breacher Squad. Either way it looks damned good.

the marine units are rather average personally.

the robots though...i see ork players enjoying them as much as the cohorts of mechanicum fans.

Mmm.. more mark III stuff.. my favourite mark :D

Not too sure about the sniper squad... but the Thallax. Damn I like. I really do hope they're just the start of a proper mechanicum army.

Despite wanting to do Iron Hands, when I see those Breacher Squads all I can think of is Imperial Fists.
