Forge World Kit Out The Dark Angels Legion For The Horus Heresy

September 4, 2015 by brennon

Forge World have been working on some new kits to help give your Space Marines of the Horus Heresy a brand-spanking new look. The Chapter getting an upgrade this time are the Dark Angels complete with new Helmets and Torsos…

The Bitz

The two most interesting additions to the bitz line-up are the Heads and Torsos which give you a collection of cool alternatives when it comes to building your force. While they are meant for the Horus Heresy there’s no reason these couldn’t show up in the 41st Millennium…

Helmets

The Helmets show off a bit more of their knightly heritage while the Torsos which you can see below add to a bit more of their Native American twist from elsewhere in their Chapter where the fluttering pennants look a little like feathers.

Torsos

In addition to these bits the Forge World team have also added three different sets of Shoulder Pads to the mix. You can pick up the MK II, MK III and MK IV versions of the shoulder pads some of which are featured on these completed models below.

The Marines!

Here you can see the models complete with Shoulder Pads, Helmets and Torsos alongside regular Bolt Pistol and Chainsword combinations for the weapon choices.

Dark Angels Legion #1

Dark Angels Legion #2

I think this set of upgrade kits have turned out really well and they give a nice spark of life to this very cool Legion in the Warhammer 40,000 lore. These warriors were from the first Legion to be created by the Emperor and so they have a special spot in the middle of the narrative.

What do you think of the new bitz?
