The digital codex is available for pre-order both as an interactive edition for iBooks, and as an eBook edition for your phone, tablet, computer and eReader.
What is fascinating that the Inquisition is not only an army unto itself, but can be fielded as an “Inqusitorial Detachment” IN ADDITION to a normal allied contingent! This is going to make for some interesting army builds…
IRON HANDS SUPPLEMENT
The Iron hands supplement Clan Raukaan is out. Here are details:
From The Black Library
One in particular caught our eye – Ambush on Skarvus – where the Iron Hands take on their ancestral foes: the Emperor’s Children. What’s particularly cool about this mission is how the artwork and photography accompanying it really capture the bitter struggle between these hated foes.
Some interesting Apoc rumors this week.
1) Apocalypse Supplement
There has been lots of chatter of a followup book for Apocalypse that will not only provide rules for bringing superheavies (or a small carefully crafted selection of them) into your ordinary Warhammer 40K games. It is also said to be a platform for the release of some new fortification kits.
2) New Plastic Apocalypse Kits
There will be new Apocalypse kits coming in plastic to increase the range, both Xenos and Imperial. So far we have:
Baneblade – Imperial Guard
Shadowsword/variants – Imperial Guard
Stompa – Orks
Tesseract Ark – Necrons
Lord of Skulls – Chaos
We saw those last two introduced together with Apocalypse 2.0 A further supplement with fortifications and 2 new plastic Apoc kits in 2014 would exactly mirror the pattern from this year.
But then it got strange…
Because if you look at that list of plastic Superheavies and wanted to add 2 to spread the love around between the major armies in the game there is a big white elephant in the room isn’t there?
Then stuff like this started to show up from multiple sources:
-Plastic Thunderhawk – 2014
-Not an exact duplication of Forgeworld’s kit due to the need to streamline for a limited number of sprues and boxing size limitations.
-Additional weapon hardpoints and weapon options compared to the Forgeworld kit. Look for weapon hardpoints and options from other Space Marine flyer kits for clues.
-Multiple T-Hawk sub-variants can be built from the kit. ~editor’s note: Forgeworld only offers the “standard” and “transport” versions, unless this is referring to things like Marine, Grey Knight, Inquisition, CSM variants…The Thunderhawk and other(s) plastic Apocalypse kit will be the featured new models in the 2014 Apocalypse Supplement.
Now if there is something that the 40K community treats like an urban legend it’s any talk of the semi-legendary plastic Thunderhawk. Like Nessie, Bigfoot and UFOs, we all want to believe. There have been second hand accounts over the years, always just out of touch… But this is the highest concentration and most specific chatter we’ve heard so far.
We rate these rumors as follows:
Apocalypse Stuff: Probable coming from multiple known sources
Thunderhawk Stuff: Possible coming from multiple sources, but it involves the words “Thunderhawk” and “Plastic” so we rolled it back one notch…
