Yeah, I was pretty hasty with my Dark Eldar post the other day, but I see nothing on the latest news about the upcoming Imperial Armour release covering the Badab War.

BoLs has got some pics:

Man, the models that we've seen look great and now this book looks awesome. I have never brought an imperial armour book before and was intending to wait until the rumoured Space Wolves/Eldar next year but I might just have to make this one my first!

More info from the FW site.

The year is 903.M41 and Lugft Huron, Chapter Master of the Astral Claws and self-styled Tyrant of Badab, declares the secession of his domains from the Imperium, taking four entire Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes with him into rebellion.
The scene is set for an epic clash of arms that will see armies crushed, fleets shattered and entire worlds reduced to lifeless cinders in one of the most dangerous internecine conflicts the Imperium has known in a thousand years.
History will call Lugft Huron a madman and a traitor, and condemn him as a pawn of Chaos or a Xenos puppet, but history is written by the victor, and in the grim darkness of the far future the truth is seldom so simple…

Inside this book, the first volume in Forge World’s two-part exploration of the infamous Badab War, you will find a detailed account of the shadowed origins, terrible secrets and savage birth of the Tyrant’s rebellion. You will also find information on the malevolent Warp-storm of the Maelstrom itself as well as the dangerous and forlorn worlds that border it.

Fire HawksAlso detailed are full histories and dispositions of the nine Space Marine Chapters that played the most significant part in the Badab War’s early stages - the Astral Claws, Fire Hawks, Marines Errant, Red Scorpions, Raptors, Novamarines, Fire Angels, Howling Griffons and Lamenters are each illustrated with extensive colour profiles.
This volume also contains a complete army list, The Tyrant’s Legion, representing those forces that defended Huron’s conquered realms from the Imperium’s wrath, and a purpose-designed campaign system for you to re-fight your own Badab War. Also included are five unique campaign missions and a special Boarding Assault mini-expansion for Warhammer 40,000 that allows you to fight brutal ship-to-ship combats on the tabletop.

The full-colour, 208-page book contains 15 colour pictures, 120 full colour Space Marine infantry and vehicle profiles and 10 detailed colour star maps, as well as three new Apocalypse formations and twelve new special characters representing mighty warriors from the Space Marine Chapters featured in this book. Forge World’s book production team and Imperial Armour Writer Alan Bligh have done sterling work adding fantastic new depth to the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The book also contains a full colour, double sided poster containing a detailed Badab Sector map by Sam Lamont, and brand new Space Marine artwork by Paul Bonner.

To whet your appetite, we’ve put together a gallery of sample page spreads that you can find here, and our Games Day lorry-load of stock will contain as many copies of this eagerly-awaited new book as we can manage to plunder from our printers. The book will be priced at £45, and because we don’t yet know exactly how many copies we’ll have available, we recommend that you send us a reservation order as soon as possible! We hope to announce a general release date for shipping world wide very soon.

I'd just like to say that despite the Astral Claws looking far different than what I thought (I thought they were Orange and Black for some reason), I think I am in love with them from that Banner on the dreadnought.

Fire Hawks look a lot better than the bright red and orange they used to have. I'm wondering if there are actual rules to use them akin to Red Scorpion Chapter Tactics (although funnily enough, Culln doesn't grant them).

Looks good, although it seems I have to wait for my personal chapter to make an appearance until Volume II. I will wait, Space Sharks. I will wait.

Actually they were Orange and Black. I was looking forward to this alot, since I run a HUGE Red Corsair Army with Huron Blackheart, but the Ultramarine colors killed any thought of Astral Claws. Seriously, fukin Ultra scheme!!! Lame....

Interesting. The Fire Hawks are going to have a Indian based history by the looks of it, both the names (Sutur, Zann and two I can't make out the names for :p) and the weapons which Sutur has on his hands, are similar to Kataras. Well, that is my two sence anyway! :)

I'm sorry, but I just cannot express in worlds how retarded this sentence is. I think I'll just leave it hanging quoted in it's retarded glory.

I'm sorry, but quasi-Ultramarine colour schemes are even worse than the original Smurfs. Which takes considerable effort in and of itself.
And orange and black was pretty good.
