From a couple of weeks ago:
Speaking of products that will be available at Warhammer Fest, we expect to be launching our new Solar Auxilia range over that weekend. These Imperial army troops for the Horus Heresy, designed by Edgar Skomorowski, will be on sale for the first time ever, along with other units for this new faction! We're sure this new range is going to be incredibly popular so if you want to be one of the first people in the world to get your hands on them grab a ticket for Warhammer Fest today!


And from today:
The Forge World Studio, always a hive of activity, is more so than ever right now. Warhammer Fest is less than a month away and preparations for it are speeding ahead in high gear. Not only are the guys preparing loads of demonstrations and displays for the weekend, there are also some awesome new models that we want to have ready in time for you to buy there.

If you read this bulletin two weeks ago, you’ll know that Forge World will be unveiling an awesome new army, the Solar Auxilia, at Warhammer Fest. I managed to capture a picture of one of the Solar Auxilia’s vehicles just for you.


So who wants to start a Heresy era Guard army? :grin:

Really? They've shut down until further notice Tallarn Desert Raiders but will start producing a full range for the new AM regiment?

Not really all that blown away with the physical model but those 3D models look fantastic. If I actually had money I'd be sure to pick some up.

Wholly unimpressed by these. The guns look weedy and ineffectual, and the bodies look worse than some 3rd party IG alternatives.

Eeh, not really feeling it to be honest. Not sure what it is specifically about them, but no. No thanks. :)

Might be trying to make them look more in scale with the SM's??

But that doesn't work unless you shrink every other race and model the same way - otherwise you get tiny guardsmen who look ridiculous as soon as you put them on the same table as anything else.

Honestly if they look good I'm okay with it. Then again Sisters are shorter than Marines are too so maybe that's why.

From Faiet last September. Thought it was worth looking at because we may not be getting Imperial Army rules for about a year or so (and maybe not models, they might just be showing off some proof of concept stuff):


There is no doubt that the Horus Heresy is one of the top selling lines of books and models for Forgeworld, and since the start of this project, hobbyist around the world have been dying for any new bits of information on it. Well, Games Day UK has just passed, and now we have laid out before us many details of what is coming from the next Primarch, and information regarding the Horus Heresy books 3-6.


This information is not rumors, but comes from the Forgeworld Seminar at Games Day UK 2013

Also check out the pics sent in taking a closer look at the next Primarch, Lorgar! They are at the bottom of the post. I am really starting to like this model a lot.

Hey Natfka, just got back from Gamesday and I have a few more pictures and info that might either confirm what others or saying or might be new.

Primarch Lorgar


Designed by Edgar Skomorowski and the next Primarch to be released at the end of the year, Horus will be Q1 2014

Forge World Seminar information
General Info
Forge World hope to release 4 Primarch models within the next 12months, they now have 2 sculptress that can do Primarchs and the entire process has been speeded up but not rushed. Roughly takes around 4-6 months.

As for the Books they would like to release a new one every 6 months but it will prob take longer. Look for new books around September time and April/May time. Every year.

Also Forge World has many ideas for the future of the Horus Heresy with them saying we are only 20% through the story by the time we finish the 2nd trilogy.

There will a model of the Emperor and Horus!

Book 3: Execution
Easter release date if everything goes according to schedule ( Q1-2 2014)
Raven Guard
Primarch model of Corax with flight pack was strongly suggested as what they wanted to do.
New units focusing on Hit and Run, precision strikes and Assassination I.e. Eliminating enemy command structure

Alpha Legion
Primarch models for Alpharius and Omegon with the possibility of a 3rd because of the whole I am Alpharius.

Subtle differences in armour between the two.
Alan Bleigh said that even tho the primarchs of the Alpha legion blend into their legion to complete missions there are times when they need to be seen as primarchs! This is what the models will represent. Them in their full glory.

Imperial Fists
Even tho Rogal Dorn was on Terra during the battle of Phall he will be in the book along with Sigismund.

Iron Warriors
The Iron Warriors will have models with rules for the Iron Circle in this book despite the fact that they were created after the battle of Phall where the Imperial Fists stormed aboard Perturabo's Flagship and into his Inner Sanctum causing him then to design and build them.
Titan legions

Book 4 Prospero
Before Christmas 2014 (Q3-4) most likely aiming for UK Gamesday but will be a tight schedule to keep up with.
Thousand Sons
Space Wolves

Speaking with Siman Egan the sculpted/designer of Angron, Fulgrim and Ferrus, he wants to do Leman Russ and Magnus in a duel like Fulgrim and Ferrus with Leman Russ's Wolves. This is only what he is planning not what is actually going ahead at this time.
Sisters of Silence
Emperors Custodes

Book 5 Signus Prime + another story involving the Dark Angles.
6 months after the release of Prospero (Q2-3) 2015
Daemons
Blood Angles
Dark Angles
Dark Mechanicum

Book 6 Calth, released 6 months after Signus Prime (Q1-2 2016)
Ultramarines
Imperial Army
Explanation on the World Bearers
more Titan legions

I hope this helps I have some more pictures i will send tomorrow,
