Samus The Daemon Prince & New Imperials Come To Forge World

May 1, 2015 by brennon

The hulking form of a Daemon has appeared on the shadowy battlefields of Forge World. See what you think of Samus, Daemon Prince Of Ruinstorm. If he has to keep saying that name all the time then no wonder he’s angry. We also take a look at the new Solar Auxilia Tactical Command & Vindicator Laser Destroyer

Samus (Main)

Blood & Death!

This huge hulking beast stands head and shoulders (and more) over the regular infantry in the game and is quite the stunning Daemon that they’ve never really focused on proper with the Horus Heresy Series yet I don’t think.

More on this beast…

“A Daemon Prince of the Ruinstorm, spreading madness and slaughtering all before him in baleful frenzy, Samus is here! A hulking monstrosity, towering over mortals, Samus, a daemon of murder made manifest, was incarnated at the height of his powers as the walls between reality and the Warp were stretched thin by the Word Bearers’ dark rites at Calth. If his corporeal flesh was destroyed, he would soon return again to wreak havoc and claim more souls for the powers of Chaos, the sound of his name echoing through the Warp and in the minds of men.”

A pretty awesome creation that is in a nice battlefield pose which I like. It’s nice to see him actually looking like he’s about to smash something to piece or cut someone in two with that blade of his.

Imperial Might

The Imperials aren’t going to be left out with both the Solar Auxilia and the Space Marines getting some additional units for the tabletop with both the Tactical Command and Vindicator Laser Destroyer…

Solar Auxilia Tactical Command

I think the Tactical Command is a great set of miniatures and it’s nice to see that Commander model that was previewed a while ago popping up in this set alongside a range of other very complex looking models. The Scribe-type model for example with the stack of scrolls looks like he’ll be insane to paint.

Vindicator Laser DestroyerIf you’re looking to blow things away in both the Horus Heresy and in the current rules for Warhammer 40,000 then see what you make of the big Vindicator Laser Destroyer…

“Tearing through the armour plating of enemy vehicles, the Vindicator laser destroyer array is a potent weapon of destruction. First retrofitted into the heavily armoured Deimos pattern Vindicator chassis during the dark days of the Horus Heresy, several Legions took to fielding this variant as a mainline battle tank, proving itself on many occasions as an able tank hunter. After millennia of brutal warfare across the galaxy, it is still in favour within the Space Marine Chapters, the Vindicator Laser Destructor continuing to bring retribution to the enemies of Mankind.”

…I reckon I’d still run with the big boom cannon on the front.

What do you think of Forge World’s offerings?
