The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno £80



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.



Iron Hills Goat Riders £45


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 TrilogyThere and Back Again.


This is a multi-part resin kit that makes three complete miniatures from 22 components. Three 40mm round bases are included.


Iron Hills Dwarves with Spears £18

99551465006_IronHillDwarfswithSpears01The 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 TrilogyThere and Back Again.


This is a multi-part resin kit that makes three complete miniatures from 11 components. Three 25mm round bases are included.


The Ruined Watchtower of Amon Sûl at Weathertop £225


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!

  • The Bob

    isn’t that the same watchtower from 15 years ago?

    • Rainthezangoose


      • BenTheMan

        Was it also the same price 15yrs ago? I don’t think so…

        • Horus84cmd

          Nor is the cost of 100’s of products people buy from 15 years ago.

          The actual model is the same one. So, what exactly is your point?

          • chranos

            Model is the same. price is £40 cheaper than when it was originally sold 15 years ago. Price on ebay these last two years for this terrain piece has gone up to £1000-1100

        • It was crazy expensive back then. I want to say it was in the $200 – $300 range.

    • Krizzab

      no, is painted in another color…i believe..

    • yep sure is.

  • Rainthezangoose

    What I’d give to be able to actually afford the hobbit stuff from forgeworld. 😥

  • Calgar

    Not a fan of the new Morg model for blood bowl. Rare to see such a swing and a miss by forgeworld. I think perhaps trying to make the bigger models fit on the smaller bases just makes them look weird.

    Because of the cost of ordering forgeworld stuff, I have to be really excited about something to order it. I think I’ll just stick with my old Morg model.

    • OldHat

      The Orc was pretty bad too. How did they manage such bad sculpts when Zug was so good?!

      • Horus84cmd

        I personally think it is more the paint job on the star-players as opposed the figures themselves. The cartoon-ish style doesn’t seem to quiet fit.

        • OldHat

          You can look at the unpainted model on FW’s site. It just looks bad. So did the other one. Zug had understated dynamism, whereas the last two are just really, really looking dated. Like early 2000s, maybe even ’90s era sculpts. Not a fan.

          • Horus84cmd

            Differing tastes. I quite like all three.

      • elwin charpentier

        The way he’s holding the ball is quite strange to me. It look like it layed on the fingers (sorry for my broken english).

  • Horus84cmd

    Morg’n’Thorg is pretty cool. Although I personally feel the paint job on the all star-players isn’t doing the model justice. FW seem to have opted for a more cartoon-ish style – I presume to fit the black-comedy aspect of Blood Bowl.

  • Raven Jax

    Me: That Watchtower is awesome. I’m going to buy it and some Nazgul.

    GW: It’s 225 pounds.

    Me: Never mind.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Wow he really has a hard time fitting on that base.. its like old gw stuff all over again. Seems they kept the art style of the early period with that ogre, which I guess fits the feel of the game. Not the best pose but still isn’t as dated I suppose as the last one.
    I really dig the Iron Hill Dwarves though!

    • Theik

      I think that’s simply a limitation of Blood Bowl being a board game. If they use a larger base, he won’t fit on the grid and it will become really cluttered if you try to surround him with other players, who will all have to overlap other squares because they can’t fit in their own because Morg’s base is taking up half their square.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        Fair point, they went for the size and compromised, makes sense, its just funny because they maxed out the larger base! As the bases now and spaces are much roomier then the old one.

  • frankelee

    I love the original Morg model and the Willy Miniatures version of him is great too. This new one is fine, but not really improving anything.

  • I wanted that watchtower when it was released back in 2001 or thereabouts. Definitely got that on preorder.

  • Shawn

    So Horus Heresy, as a game has reached it’s 7th (roughly) $100 USD book. What game has more rule bloat now? Are they going to stretch this series to 30+ books like Black Library did?

  • AwesomePizza

    Someone trying to hawk one on eBay for over a grand is crying now.
