Even more info from some BoLS Readers who heard from the Forgeworld Team. Forgeworld is going to be busy:
ForgeWorld General Info
-Prospero has been pushed back 1-2 years.
-Don’t expect Skitari anytime soon
– Expect other auxillary forces with future books, like Spire Guard for Prospero and Calth Defence (and Word Bearers cultists) for Calth
-Mechanicus Knight Titan is in the works
-They’ve said they have reached about 50% of the series chronologically. Of the 14 years the Heresy lasts, theyre up to year 7-8.
-Will include rules for Knight Titan armies, Dark Mechanicus, a full campaign system and “toolbox” to create a lot of different games.Will also feature rules for Shattered Loyalist legions, different legions banding together after getting screwed by Horus.
-Book will also feature Legion Relics for lots of legions, including ones we’ve not seen. These aren’t Heresy relics….these are relics of the Dark Age of Technology.
Solar Auxillary Army
-The new transport and Basilisk are for the Imperial army Solar Auxillary.
-They actually said this will be the least Mariney book of the entire series. They will be there, but won’t get much new. Instead it will be Imp Army, Mechanicus and Knights taking centre stage.
Someone asked in seminar 1 “I’m 50 years old. Will I live to see the end of the series”. There was a few furtive looks between the writers and a lot of “ermmm….”
~So, any bets on how many years until we reach the Siege of Terra?
