Forge World Unleash New Rules & Magos For The Mechanicum

August 28, 2015 by brennon

Forge World’s surprise for you this week is the addition of a new army list to the Horus Heresy collection in the form of the Mechanicum: Taghmata Army. As well as that they’ve produce a new HQ set featuring a Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Servo-Automata.

New Rules

The new book details the forces that you can use in the Horus Heresy and help for playing your games of Warhammer 40,000 in this game era…

THE HORUS HERESY - MECHANICUM TAGHMATA ARMY LIST

“It includes background and profiles for all of the units available to the Mechnicum Taghmata, Legio Cybernetica and Ordo Reductor armies as well as support aircraft, seven classes of Knight, the Warhound, Reaver and immense Warlord Titans and introduces powerful new units such as the Ordinatus Macro Engines.”

It’s a quite nice looking tome and I’m sure that collectors are already considering snapping this up to make sure that their own version of the Black Library is fully stocked.

Mechanical Mastermind

On top of the new rules there is a new unit, the Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Servo-Automata, that will be able to lead your forces into battle…

MECHANICUM MAGOS MACROTEK ENGINSEER & SERVO-AUTOMATA

“This Magos Macrotek Enginseer is armed with a power axe and servo arms and is joined by four servo-automata armed with servo-arms and close combat weapons.”

I don’t particularly like the Servo-Automata although I do appreciate their ‘mechanical ghost’ appearance. The star of the show really is the Magos though and I think that he would look great leading Warhammer 40,000 Adeptus Mechanicus too.

Will you be picking up this new book?
