Games Workshop is showcasing a brand new model for the Horus Heresy – it’s Maloghurst the Twisted in all his glory!

The infamous equerry to Warmaster Horus is finally getting a model from Forge World and it’s looking good. Packing a wicked scar and a mighty banner of the Sons of Horus, Maloghurst the Twisted is reporting for duty.

“Maloghurst was a veteran legionary that served the Luna Wolves and Sons of Horus throughout numerous campaigns during the Great Crusade, earning the nickname ‘Twisted’ due to his formidable mind. The title took on a cruel double meaning when enemy forces shot down his transport during the pacification of planet 63-19, and he was left badly injured.”

“The model perfectly encapsulates Maloghurst as he was at the beginning of the Horus Heresy. As you’ll see from his rules in The Horus Heresy Book Two – Massacre, he opens up some unique army building options for your Sons of Horus army.”

Maloghurst the Twisted carries the Icon of his Legion and has a unique way of holding the standard. Also, he’s got himself a tactical rock to stand on as he takes aim with a Heresy-Era bolter. It’s a great take on an iconic character from the Horus Heresy.

If you are looking for his rules, they can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Two – Massacre.
