Forge World have two new sets of models for you today on both sides of the Horus Heresy conflict. The first is Zardu Layak & The Anakatis Kul Blade-Slaves with the second being the Ultramarine Invictarus Suzerain Squad facing off against them. Boiling blood and hate versus pride and honour…
These traitors to the Emperor are looking particularly gifted by the Dark Gods as the first set of new miniatures for today. I particularly like the way they’ve done the mutations as they aren’t too over the top.
“Suffused in dark powers which he used freely to destroy minds and bodies, Zardu Layak walked his bloody path accompanied by a pair of bodyguards, each unnaturally warped and contorted and possessed of great strength.
Wielding the Anakatis blades, gifts bestowed upon them by Layak and weapons of unholy xenos influence and malevolent power, they cut a swathe through their master’s foes in a barely controlled hunger for slaughter.”
These are quite important figures in the story of the Horus Heresy and pop up during the Battle of Calth. If you were looking for deadly Chaos warriors then you have quite the set.
Honour Your Chapter
Holding against the tide of darkness are some very impressive Ultramarines called the Invictarus Suzerain. I swear they name these squads so they are near impossible to type quickly…
The squad comes armed with legatine power axes, boarding shields and bolt pistols for when things get a little hairy and they need some extra firepower.
“Chosen to be the living embodiments of their Primarch’s rule, Invictarus Suzerains are equipped with some of the finest weapons and wargear their Legion possesses.
Their ornate armour shines with the light of Guilliman’s wisdom and authority; their exquisitely wrought boarding shields hold anarchy and disorder at bay and the Legatine power axes they wield with deadly effect dispense instant judgement upon any who would dare to defy their Primarch’s will.
I think they’ve done some sterling work on these models as whatever you want to say about the Ultramarines they do have some of the best looking miniatures. I particularly like the helmets that are emblazoned with the Aquila as a faceplate.
Will you side with Chaos?
