FW: New Releases “Moritats & More”

The murderous Moritat arrives in the Forge World Pre-Orders this week along with the new Tyrant Siege Terminators!

Legion Moritat with Plasma Pistols £21

Said by some to be no less than death incarnate, and by others to be dishonourable murderers with no place in the Imperium’s order of battle, Moritats are lone killers operating outside the Legion’s usual command structures at the behest, or at least sufferance of its high commanders. Regarded usually as dangerously unstable outcasts – perhaps created by some seldom-exposed flaw of gene-seed or indoctrination – they are also savage and proficient warriors however, having become one with the act of killing, honing their superhuman reflexes to gun down the foe at close quarters to a preternatural degree.

Operating outside the Legion command structure, occasionally serving alongside the ranks of the Legion Destroyer squads, this model will prove a great addition to any Space Marine collection. Wielding two plasma pistols, connected to the included jump pack via plasma feed cables capable of launching an incredible amount of constant firepower, the Moritat’s detailed miniature – including a symbol on the right shoulder pad, specifically created for the Moritat – can be painted to fit in with any Legion’s colour scheme.

Rules for this model can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List.

This multi-part resin kit comes as 10 components, and is supplied with a 32mm scenic round base featuring a rock for the Moritat’s elevated pose, and an unfortunate Space Marine’s detached head.

Legion Moritat with Volkite Serpenta £21

Iron Warriors Legion Tyrant Siege Terminators £60

Tyrant Siege Terminators are the vanguard of any Iron Warriors siege breaker formation. Clad in thick Cataphractii plate and spitting a relentless hail of high explosive missiles from their cyclone missile launchers, these implacable warriors are fortress-breakers of unparalleled skill. The bleak spectacle of these warriors wading through storms of lasfire and shell, stoically smashing apart any obstacle before them with chainfist and krak blast, became synonymous with Perturabo’s wrath unleashed.

Add these Tyrant Siege Terminators to your Iron Warriors army with this multi-part resin kit. It makes 5 Terminators, armed with combi-bolters and cyclone missile launchers, which are mounted atop their carapaces. They feature power fists, and there is a targeter in the kit, used to identify the Tyrant Siege Master. Each model exemplifies the chunky lines and dense armour that Terminators are made of, with accessories including bionic limbs. The parts included are interchangeable between the models, meaning you can make your Terminators unique.

Rules for these models can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions.

This kit comprises 46 components, and is supplied with 5 40mm round bases.


Moritat – The Stig of Horus Heresy.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Love the Tyrant Siege Termies…!

  • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

    both the Moritats and the Termies have a cartoony type styling that would look at home in 40K but isn’t really 30K. I hope that is not a sign of things to come.

    • AregonAlmighty

      I think thats more down to the painting, the Moritat have a pose the resembles their vigilant yet furious nature, while the tyrants keep going with the IV Legion´s aesthetic of “German/Roman hybrid but in space”. I would blame the paintjob more so than the actual models

  • orionburn

    Don’t know what it is but haven’t been liking some of the paint jobs that FW has been putting out lately. The Moritats look good but not a fan of the scheme on the Termies. Awesome models, though.

    • ZeeLobby

      Their whole studio is definitely leaning towards a more animated look (I think that’s what I’m seeing).

    • Lion El’ Jonson

      I’ve noticed it too. It’s by no means bad, but it just doesn’t fit 30k imo. When you see a certain style for something, you eventually link the style to the setting (Atleast I do). It’s a bit jarring actually to see the new sort of direction.

      • orionburn

        I noticed it when they released the star players for the human & skaven teams for Blood Bowl. The colors were more pastel and didn’t seem as smooth. Just had a chalky look to them that didn’t seem realistic.

        Over the past few months I’ve been increasingly annoyed with a lot of the current painting trends. The OSL technique was neat at first but has gotten so out of hand. Funny thing is I read an article earlier this week talking about model building years ago and how it got to the point where in competitions it almost became heresy to have any weathering on a model because it had been used & abused by so many. I think that’s my main beef with the Termies. You can’t tell if the goal is an OSL feel or wear/worn spots on the armor. Painting trends come and go and I think we’ve past the apex of popularity and will see some of these things begin to trend away in the next few years.

        I always feel bad complaining about someone else’s work because I’m nowhere near that level of skill. It isn’t that the quality is bad, I just don’t like the palette that is being used these days.

  • Zingbaby

    Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Felt the same

  • ZeeLobby

    I mean I get WHY the cables are there, but they IMO they make the models look pretty goofy (compared to say the old Cypher model from 40K).

    • vlad78

      Remove them and put some power packs instead.

      • ZeeLobby

        Oh, no doubt. Just commenting on their design.

        • vlad78

          I agree, I tend to customize ALL my GW minis lately.

  • Walter Vining

    nothing says balanced like 5 terminators getting 10 s8 ap3 shots a turn!

    • Louie’sUglyRanglehorns

      I guess everything has to be S4 AP5 or it’s “broken.” Terminators are underpowered (in T and W) anyway.

    • Drpx

      It’s not even D/grav so what’s the big deal?

  • Severius_Tolluck

    The moritats look short, the legs feel off. stunty… I mean most marines are never proportionate but those seem more off than normal.

  • Andrew

    Boba Fett and Jango Fett look cool.

  • Drpx

    There’s a reason nobody wants to be around the guy dual-wielding plasma.

  • BaronSnakPak

    Know what else is new?


  • DJ860

    Can anyone recommend and BL books that have the Moritats in? I’m struggling to place them in the story but would like to.
