Forgeworld opened their doors at Nottingham and look what was under the covers…
The main points (via AWESOME roving BoLS reporter Sotonshades):
-Stormeagle – Indeed a resin/plastic hybrid kit
-Mk IV Assault troops
-New CC Termy upgrades – hammers and claws
-New Termy combi/heavy weapons
-New Apothecarys – these are absolutely gorgeous
-New IG ‘A-10’ Attack-flyer
-Land Raider Spartan
-Lots O Fantasy stuff…
Terrain kits are being worked one. Realm of Battle Boards and more expansions for Zone Mortalis coming, but other stand alone pieces are planned. Race specific RoB sections are planned, for most armies in 40k AND Fantasy.
Imperial Armour 12 is Minotaur Space Marines Vs Necrons. Focus is on sectorwide conflict rather than specific system/planets, so it will incorporate IG and probably other races as well. It will present a facet of Imperial war we haven’t really seen before. To go with the book expect a BIG expansion of FW’s Necron range.
Minotaurs will probably appear in several unlinked books, with an overall unfolding mystery about them.
The Tzeentch/penal colony stuff will most likely be IA13 now and will most likely cover a Tzeenchian Cult across several legions and renegade Space Marines.
Adeptus Mechanicus MAY appear in the next 2-3 books. Not certain, and probably more as part of a faction than as a force in their own right. They really want to do Knight Titans, but will be a while away yet.
