Forge World have now put forth another of their Horus Heresy Weekender models for pre-order. See what you make of the Word Bearers Tainted Dreadnought, Mhara Gal




More on Mhara Gal…

“First encountered during the Battle of Ithraca amidst the catastrophe on Calth, the twisted form of the Mhara Gal Tainted Dreadnought is terrifying in both its aspect and its unearthly power. The first Mhara Gal is believed to have been created from the barely living remains of a Gal Vorbak Dark Brethren and a battle-shattered Contemptor Dreadnought chassis, both recovered from the blood-soaked ground of Isstvan V. Fused together by unholy practices, they were then corrupted by a warp-borne power, giving birth to a new monstrosity – a living engine of war and hatred.”

…quite the terrifying possessed beast on the battlefield. In battle he comes equipped with a warpfire plasma cannon and tainted power claws making him the scourge of armour and infantry alike.

When it comes to the model itself however, I’m not sold. I saw the original preview of him and thought he looked ok but now I’ve had a bit more time I’m not so sure. I’m really not a fan of the way the mutations have been done and I don’t like the weird top heavy look to him either. He looks like his waist is about to snap.

I’m sure other people have more positive opinions on him so let me know in the comments!
