BoLS says something about it being IF vs IW. Battle of Phall but who knows. If they don't have chapter markings, not sure how that would be possible. Plus those two factions are basically two sides of the same time, especially pre/during heresy.

Have you checked out the sprues? If this is legit then there's nothing unique about these models aside from what transfer you apply to the shoulder.

The game itself is almost inconsequential to my desire for less expensive, plastic, and more accessible Heresy-era models without resorting to Chinese knockoff manufacturers. That being said, it could be cool if it is what it's rumoured to be. I just hope it's not "players 1+" like the Assassins game was. I used to love goading my older sister through sheer attrition of will into games of Space Hulk when 2nd edition came out.

Fuckin' classic right there.

I've seen the sprues and honestly, it didn't really even look like two different armies. Just one big one.

Game or not, the models will be coveted and pretty cool if you ask me. I already have plants to death-guard mine up, and make some ancient Plague Marines still wearing their heresy era armor, albeit a bit decayed and gritty.

I think this is they key. GW is releasing a game that can be played on its own, used as an add-on to any existing army, or used as the start of a new army.

Either way I like what I've seen so far.

I like it too. Thats one of the more interesting things about 30k, a lot of the armies can use all the same models, but the color schemes and compositions dictate which legion it is.

£70 is ~$150 CAD, I'd expect it to be about there unless there's just a ton of models in it. Dark Vengeance is $130 and has snap together models and Shield of Baal Deathstorm was $150 with 'normal' models.

If this is indeed around the $150 mark I may just have a 30k army in the works! My biggest problem: what Chapter to do...

Rumoured to be in the box:

2x 10 man Tactical squads
Captain in Power Armour
Captain in Cataphractii Termiator Armour
Cataphractii Terminators
Veteran/Specialist squad

A healthy start to any collection of muhreenz!

Just lifted this from my facebook wall.

Could be relevant, could be something entirely different.


I had an interesting conversation with Games Workshop this morning. I'm one of a few Independents who are being offered a new product to trial that won't even be in their own branches. It will be announced on Saturday. I don't follow forums so you may all know about it already but if not...watch this space and look out for the full announcement on Saturday. I've been retailing Games Workshop products since 2003 and I've never known them give me something that will not be available in their branches. It may go into branches at some point, but for now their selected Independents are being used to see how it sells. Makes sense in lots of ways I guess?

That's some interesting stuff @Tawa! Though....do ya really think plastic 30k is something they wouldn't trust to just bang out in their own stores? I mean c'mon, plastic Heresy just gives me shivers. As with every Saturday I'll be checking the site for what's new.

If you ask me this sounds more likely to be the rumoured airbrush paint range that GW are planning on releasing.

It makes more sense to sell this to the independents since GW does not currently sell an airbrush for them to go with for now.

Maybe it's GW branded deodorant,
independents get a trial before it becomes compulsory for teenage boys to wear it, when they are in GW shops

Citadel Air it is!

Which i dont get to be honest. Why sell something when as it stands currently you dont sell the the means to use. Hell GW have long been the 'All you need is us' with their products, glue, hobby tools, pallettes etc, yes there are all sorts of alternatives but you still have the option to just use GW if you so wish. But also those that are using an airbrush -from online reading at least - use Valejo Model Air or other brands, now while yes an argument can be made that this is simply because GW didn't offer an Airbrush range, I dont see to many people just hoping over to Citidel Air just because its GW when they have whatever they will be using currently.

Oh man. Think of all the amazing product names... this could be its own product line with its own thread!

Scent of the Emperor
Wolf scout musk
Dark angels incense
Unguent of the machine god
Perfume of the possessed
Ultra odor-destroyer

;)
