I sent a nice mail to FW here:

Hello,
In Imperial Armour 5-7 and found online http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/Product/PDF/i/IA5_RH.pdf you have the great rules for Renegades and Heretics. This is invaluable now due to the change in the allies table making Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum) now being part of the Armies of the Imperium, so now Come the Apocalypse rather than before being Allies of Convenience.

So I have a question.

Is there going to be an update to the Renegades list to bring it up to date a bit more with the current generation of books. Some things like the Company Command Platoon & Renegade Militia Platoon follows what was the old 5th Edition Imperial guard model for making a units. So the command one has the heavy weapons teams linked to it, while the Militia one just your standard 1 heavy 1 special weapon in a bunch of 10 guys. Also having the Armoured Fist as well as a separate unit.
The new Astra Militarum of course has 5 guys with bonus gear and a few extras if purchased, while the infantry platoons have the normal guys as listed above and heavy / special weapon teams as options and any can get in the Chimera.

Also after looking for a while I did find the updated version of the Psyker Powers, but it was a bit hard to find, so a reprint with those included, even if just updated on the PDF you provide on your site would be nice



Thanks for taking the time to read this and hope you will give me a mail back.

Hi,

Thank you for your email. We will be releasing an Imperial Armour book later in the year which will cover all the Chaos models we produce for 40k. It will contain a full chaos Renegade Army list. At this moment in time, we cannot provide any more information that this about this book.

What it does mean is that there will not be any updates for the Renegade forces until this book is released.


If there is anything further we can do to assist you, or if you have any queries about the information we have requested or provided, please telephone us.

Regards,

Forge World

Looks like new or at least revamped chaos stuff before Xmas
That would be this one I think.

Revamped Renegades and Heretics stuff. Good scrub over the old things like Plague Hulks and all that lot to put them back in a current book. Maybe have a once over of a few of the special char models. Also almost without a doubt I would say a Chaos Knight.

Forge World Bulletin #35 (New chaos looking knight)

See the picture, the Knight on the far left looks slightly Chaos like?



May be wrong though, but I have not seen that gun, or claw.

That would be the Questoris knight Magaera; and as breach assaulting knight you definitely want it to look terrifying.

Ah your right, thats not the Magaera (considering its in the center); just has the same shoulders, body (less the face), and legs with a slightly different claw and what might be a plasma based cannon.

I think it's a volkite weapon, the barrel is very similar to the normal volkite weapons although they tend to be a little more "curvy" and that one looks a bit more block like.

The Forgeworld Amsterdam Open showed a Magaera-like Knight with a Volkite weapon, the Carronade, likely, the same as the one on the Legion Glaive - basically fires a beam which affects all units it passes through, which causes a fair bit of damage, thanks to Haywire, AP2, and the ability to deal additional hits thanks to deflagrate - incidentally, something that's coming to a Leman Russ near you soon as well.

I think the new book is Eldar.

IA13 is supposedly Chaos Renegades and Heretics, but I wouldn't be surprised if that got shuffled around too.

Bad news - I just contacted ForgeWorld to hear if they plan to release a Chaos Knight in the future, and got this reply.

Hi,
Thank you for your email.

We do not have any current plans to produce a Chaos Knight Variant, but you never know, it may be something we produce at some point in the future.
Darn :(
