“You’ll soon be able to equip these most durable Terminators with the deadly assault cannon, iconic heavy weapon of Space Marine Terminators in the 41st Millennium. In the time of the Horus Heresy, these weapons were still new off the Forge World production lines, developed for those close quarters firefights where you absolutely have to kill every impure heretic and xenos abomination in the room.”



“Also on the way are new storm shields for Imperial Fists Terminators (just in case that 2+ armour save and 4+ invulnerable save wasn’t enough for you). Always masters of defence, the Imperial Fists were amongst the first Space Marines to make extensive use these personal shields, and they fit very nicely with the stoic-warrior-knight look that characterises so much of the rest of the Legion’s elite troops.”

So there you have it, the venerable Assault Cannon and Storm Shield will be available soon from Forge World. Also note that these upgrades will work with both the plastic and the resin kits. It doesn’t matter which type you have you’ll be able to retrofit your models with the latest goodies from Forge World.


Fresh of the Forge World Presses – New Weapons of War! Get them while they’re HOT!

  • Deacon Ix

    I still have 20 un-built Cataphractii Termis as I am waiting on the WB shoulder pads 🙁

  • orionburn

    I hope those storm shields are a sign of things to come for other legions…

    • Mike Linke

      In 30k, Storm Shields are a special wargear option for imperial fists. It’s unlikely they will do legion storm shields for all legions.

      • Shawn

        Well, in that case, case I will just have to make use of some strikebreaker shields or Medusan Immortals shields for my Iron Hands Cataphracti. I play 40k, so no one will complain that I have “counts as” storm shields for them.

  • Deez

    As a Fists player, bring on the Iliastus and Vigil!

    • CMAngelos

      Been waiting for these forever… my patience has paid off. Nearly went 3rd party for them.

      • Deez

        Same! Although some of the 3rd party shields for other legions are stunning. I haven’t seen any specific to Imperial Fists though. I also have not looked too thoroughly…

  • nurglitch

    It’s a pity there’s no plastic Reaper cannon for the Cataphractii.

  • pokemastercube .

    now my blood angel terminators can get their assault cannons 🙂

  • Agent OfBolas

    3++ in 30k is a bad idea.

    • ClarenceThomas

      It’s for Imperial Fists, since they’ve had access to storm shields since they were released.

    • Mitchell

      Because there are no typhons, support squads, or low AP weapons in 30k? LoL

    • OldHat

      Given that no one complains much about Fire Drakes, I am inclined to disagree. 30k is loaded with high Str and low AP weapons. And these cost just enough to make it about right balance wise.

  • Shawn Lyons

    Still waiting for cyclone missile launchers for tyrant siege terminators.

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    I was hoping they wouldn’t add the assault cannon to 30k. I have actually see other load outs with it not being around.

    • Muninwing

      since assault cannons are what attracted me to Deathwing, i’m happy that i can field more.

      especially since i’ve been considering fielding Cataphractii counts-as-command for awhile now, and that would give me a unit of fun-looking models with some interesting options…

      • Dennis J. Pechavar

        Same here and it’s what got me into them as well. Back in good old 2nd Ed where the DAs were the blessed marines who had the fluff for both bikes and termies. Now not so unique. I just would prefer to see “older” weapons used and not just jump back to the assault cannon.
