Forge World is teasing the return of a new reimagined classic – Say hello to the new “Old School” Land Speeder!
The Land Speeder is one of the oldest units from Warhammer 40,000 finding it’s origins back in Rogue Trader. It’s had it’s updates through the years to both the rules and the models, but it’s always been around.
