The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno is a supplement for Warhammer 40,000 which depicts the cataclysmic battle of the Burning of Prospero, home planet of the Thousand Sons Legion, the near-destruction of that Legion, the fall of its Primarch, Magnus, and the tangled web of fate and treachery which led up to it.
Within the leather-bound, 312-page book, you’ll find detailed background information on the Fall of Prospero, told across six chapters from The Trial of The Sorcerer to The Seeds of Heresy, exploring the bitter struggle to defend Prospero from the merciless punishment meted out by the Imperium’s forces. Included are full army lists for Space Wolves, Thousand Sons and Talons of the Emperor, allowing you to play the full Prospero campaign – 4 Missions, 3 Conclusion Missions and 3 Legendary Missions are included, alongside a host of special and optional rules.
The Space Wolves and Thousand Sons benefit from Legion-specific Rites of War and specific units and wargear, with full rules for their respective Primarchs included.
Full background for the forces involved is included: on the side of the Imperium you’ll find Space Wolves, Legio Custodes, Sisters of Silence, Servants of the Warmaster and the Ordo Sinister covered in great detail, with the same care and attention placed upon the background of the forces of Prospero: the Thousand Sons, Legio Xestobiax and the Forge World of Zhao Arkhad.
Also included is a Mechanicum appendix – this features rules for the Acastus Knight Porphyrion, Vultarax Stratos-automata and Karacnos Assault Tank, amongst others.
The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno is a complete expansion for the Warhammer 40,000 game – it requires the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook, the Legiones Astartes Crusade Army List and the Mechanicum Taghmata Army List books to use all of its contents.
Morg ‘N’ Thorg £20
A hulking brute of an Ogre Blocker, Morg ’N’ Thorg is something of a lumbering juggernaut. Nearly eight feet tall, bludgeoning his way through the opposition, he’s always a spectacle to watch out for on the pitch. Off the field, his frightening appearance disguises a truly gentle nature, making him a bizarre hit with children – on the pitch, however, he tramples anything that gets in his way, often simply handing the ball to one of his teammates and flinging them into the End Zone to score.
Morg ’N’ Thorg, a truly legendary Blood Bowl player, can be added to any Blood Bowl team (except Undead; he’s really not a fan) with this multi-part resin kit. Particularly large and covered in spikes, with a knowing smirk on his gigantic face, he would be an asset to any Blood Bowl collection. His rules are found on a Star Player card in the Blood Bowl boxed set, and in Death Zone Season 1.
This kit comes in 30 components and includes 2 32mm round bases, one featuring a hole to slot a ball into, indicating possession of the ball in your games of Blood Bowl.
Whilst other Dwarven kingdoms prefer to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground, the Dwarves of the Iron Hills utilise the mountain goats native to their homeland to ride into war. When Dain’s goats hit home, they do so in an avalanche of steel plates and stone-hard horns, shieldwalls are smashed aside and enemy warriors are hurled to the ground like ragdolls, even as the skilled riders plunge razor-edged spears into exposed flesh.
The Iron Hills Goat Riders are a cavalry unit for the Erebor Reclaimed and Iron Hills army lists, capable of knocking flat even the most sure-footed foe with their Devastating Charge. The kit comes with three war spears – one for each rider – with the option for one model to exchange this for an included mattock.
Rules for using the Iron Hills Goat Riders can be found in The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy™ There and Back Again.
This is a multi-part resin kit that makes three complete miniatures from 22 components. Three 40mm round bases are included.
The Dwarves of the Iron Hills will follow their lord without question into battle. Their unbending resolve and will to fight drives them forwards against unassailable odds. Many Dwarves are equipped with huge mattocks or crossbows, whilst others are armed with long spears and broad shields; these Dwarves are highly trained in the art of forming a nigh-impenetrable shieldwall. Just as with Dwarven armour, no weakness is permitted in the army of the Iron Hills, and so the Dwarves of Dain’s army are the finest of their kind.
The Iron Hills Dwarves with Spears are an infantry unit for the Erebor Reclaimed and Iron Hills Dwarf army lists. When modelled without the included shields, they are also perfect for representing dismounted Iron Hills Dwarf Goat Riders. They come armed with a spear and shield each, with an optional mattock for one model – assembled with their shields, they make a great alternative for your shieldwall.
Rules for using the Iron Hills Dwarves with Spears can be found in The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy™ There and Back Again.
This is a multi-part resin kit that makes three complete miniatures from 11 components. Three 25mm round bases are included.
At the end of the Third Age Amon Sûl lies in ruins, no longer the grand watchtower it once was. Within its crumbling stone walls are carved the kings of old; their grave features a reminder of the grandeur that this place once possessed, and the fate that had befallen the lands of Arnor across the centuries.
It is upon the watchtower of Amon Sûl that the Hobbits of the Shire are confronted by the Black Riders in their bid to reclaim The One Ring, and without the intervention of Strider, it could have provided the final resting place of Frodo Baggins and his companions.
The Ruined Watchtower of Amon Sûl at Weathertop is a large multi-part resin scenery piece – over 16 inches in diameter – and a faithful recreation of an iconic location from The Lord of the Rings™ movie trilogy. Sculpted using original film set plans, it will make a beautiful centrepiece for any collector of Middle-earth™ miniatures.
It comprises 14 parts, and comes with a full-colour construction guide. A .pdf scenario covering the events of the Nazgûl attack at Weathertop – A Knife In The Dark – is available to download, and features rules for using this scenery piece in your Points Match games.
That Ruined Watchtower…wow!
