Check out these latest releases from Forge World. The Chapter of the Minotaurs now have some special characters to lead their superhuman brothers into battle…
“The name of the bloody-handed and paranoid master of the Minotaurs Chapter, Asterion Moloc, is a byword for slaughter and destruction in the name of the Imperium across a hundred worlds, yet he is also a diligent and disciplined logistician and a master of siege craft. In battle he can most often be found at the head of his 1st Company Terminators, and when not prosecuting a conflict he occupies a brazen throne at the very heart of his flagship, the labyrinthine heavy assault carrier Daedelos Krata.
The gaunt and brooding Reclusiarch Ivanus Enkomi became the eyes and voice of his master during the Badab War; an aloof and distant observer at Carab Culln’s war-councils. A paradox, whose red-irised eyes and crimson-tattooed features speak of some feral origin, yet in whose voice lies a capacity for fierce and stirring oratory, Chaplain Enkomi is a skilled tactical commander, most notably during the Loyalist attack on Shaprias that uncovered the black depths to which the Tyrant of Badab’s treachery had sunk.”
Asterion Moloc and Chaplain Enkomi of the Minotaurs! Some brilliant looking models with real weight and character to them. I particularly like the way the helms are fashioned and the amount of detail on their armour. However, if your not looking for some special characters then how about this…
This is the Rapier Laser Destroyer, wildly used during boarding assaults and in close quarter fighting. Certainly looks the part but it will take you folks testing it out on the battlefield to see if it lives up to its destroyer name.
You can see the rules for it here.
As for the rules for the special characters, they can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 10 – The Badab War Part II.
Will you be fighting alongside these Minotaur special characters?
