Forge World have released two new kits onto their webstore for pre-order at the beginning of April. See what you think of Armillus Dynat and The Xiphon Pattern Interceptor which came as quite the surprise!
“Armillus Dynat, the Harrowmaster of the Alpha Legion, has been a feared strike commander since his name came to prominence during the invasion of Paramar. Known to possess strategic genius, his style of warfare is as intricate as it is unorthodox. Using fast moving, heavily armoured vehicles and close air support, he will split enemy formations apart before crushing them without mercy.”
Armillus is the latest mutli-part resin kit for the Horus Heresy Character Series and comes with both a gaming base and a scenic base which you can see above. He’s quite the masterful sculpt and I like the work that’s gone into the scales on his chest armour and leggings.
Supporting Space Marines From The Skies
On the other surprising side of things we have the Xiphon Pattern Interceptor…
“With unparalleled speed and manoeuvrability, the Xiphon pattern Interceptor saw increasing service in the Legiones Astartes during the dark days of the Horus Heresy. Based on ancient designs, the void and atmospheric craft carried heavy armaments into battle, allowing it to destroy both air and ground targets with apparent ease. Its pair of twin-linked lascannon and Xiphon rotary missile launcher combined with the Interceptor’s speed and agility to make it a deadly opponent from which the enemies of Mankind could not hide.”
…and as you might imagine they serve the Space Marine sin battle and look like relatively awesome flyers compared to some of the other things we’ve seen for the Warhammer 40,000 counterparts. It will be interesting to see people make some cool traitor versions of these too.
What do you think of both hero and flyer?
