It was about time to make up some pretty transfers for the Word Bearers. These look amazing !

The game will have its own rules, then ? Do you think they are related to/inspired by FW 30K rules ?

I'll be picking this up purely for me. I'll leave the Tacticals until FW release the Thousand Sons upgrades but I'll happily add the rest to my IHs.

Currently undecided I must admit - I find the models quite static and boring. I am going for wardbearers but simply adding symbols to their shoulder is not enough for me. I want the chest pieces and special helmets - The works!

Maybe I'll pick it up and use the legs and arms, and replace the shoulder, helmet and chest.

Huh? I get it when it comes to the Contemptor I guess, but we have multi-part plastic stuff for everything here and not the snap together stuff we've seen in other sets (HQs look a little static, but then when aren't they from GW). MkIV isn't my favourite but if the models look boring I'd wager that it's because they weren't assembled with the love and care that a hobbyist would show the poses.

I would/want to/will definitely bling the models up with some FW accessories, but even just using what you've listed here will still be cheaper than anything else barring imported knockoffs. Just think about what eBay is gunna look like after this glorious set is released!

EDIT: found a pic of the WB Commander



EXTRA EDIT: found a pic of the assembled Contemptor. Totes want two of these so I can chop my way to a dual assault cannon and dual power fist beast...but yeah. Them knees are getting cut all to hell and repositioned.


Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Squint like you mean it (as I was posting this I found bigger better pictures, so no more squinting really)!

Box art is a bit pants. Considering how far we've come and the amount of great WH40k art we've seen, the box looks like it was designed back in the 2nd edition era.

A lot of the Horus Heresy design language has essentially been modernizing the look of the classic RT and 2nd Edition models. The Contemptor is based on the original Space Marine Dreadnought, for example, and the weapons the Marines themselves have are meant to look like the classic weapons from the late 80's-- like the shoulder-mounted heavy weapons and the thinner, more battle rifle-esque look for the boltguns.

Yeah I remember playing Chaos Gate when I was little where those were the weapons for the present day Space Marines, and not only the Horus Heresy-time-era.

Liking the look of the new models from all the photos being posted - as there are 3 tactical squads in the set I was thinking of the following:-
  • leaving one set as standard ultramarines,
  • converting one set with Forge World Ultramarines Invictarii Heads & Torsos and maybe some robes to be "veterans",
  • possibly converting one set using Forge World Dark Angels Legion Torsos & heads Upgrade Sets.
Would it be ok to use the GW Ultramarines & Dark Angels Upgrade Packs for shoulder pads etc.?

I'll wait and see what weapons options are included in the set but is there any Forge World weapons sets anyone would recommend or would I need to make up some separate "heavy weapons" squads?

If I keep these as 30k models it would also give me a reason to be able to get a Legion Scimitar Pattern Jetbike and Legion MKIV Outrider Squadron which I have always liked.

Sorry for so many questions and if any of my ideas are wrong as I have not looked at any 30k options before seeing this new set.
Any further advice or suggestions would be much appreciated - thanks in advance.

This has been confirmed at $180 CAD. Posting pics from my phone is a pain, trust me/google it.
