Created as a dedicated assault dropship for the Legio Custodes, the Orion can carry a full task force of the Emperor’s Talons into combat. Protected by frontal armour superior to that of the Legiones Astartes Thunderhawk Gunship, its weapons can swiftly clear a landing zone of hostile infantry and armour with brutal efficiency, allowing the units within to deploy before it soars back into the sky to unleash death upon any foe who dares approach.

We have seen some previous pictures as well from the Forge World Open Day 2017:

This new Orion Assault Dropship looks to pack a pretty big punch. On top of that, if you’re looking for a hobby challenge, this vehicle has a lot of smooth surfaces that you could really go nuts with. There is lots of potential for free-hand work, battle damage, or whatever crazy modeling opportunity you come up with.

We’re expecting to see this new kit available to order from Forge World pretty soon. Start saving your pennies now!



We’re in the pipe – Five by Five. Legio Custodes are coming your way in style!
