New! Shadow Spectres and Warp hunter from Forge World


From Fallen Autarch on onthestep.net:

“The pre orders are out on them along with the experimental rules. They are interesting, although a bit fragile the spectres can offer you a range 60 str 10 lance at full strength. Glancing land raiders on 2’s. And the Hunter is pretty much a flying D-Cannon which can also be a flame tank of ap 2 and wounding on 2’s….. ouch! Makes it anti tank and anti infantry, wouldn’t mind having 1 or 2 of them.

[Ed: The model above is a Warp Hunter. The other featured pre-order is the Shadow Spectre Aspect Warriors, with their experimental rules here.]
Some great looking shots as always from Forge World. A couple more pictures after the break, as well as the announcement email from Forgeworld themselves.

Shadow Spectres Aspect Warrior Squad
Shadow Spectres Aspect Warriors Squad
Disguised behind shimmering holo-fields, draped with gossamer-thin robes and appearing like ghosts, the Shadow Spectres are armed with prism rifles, each a potent anti-tank weapon. Their jet pack mobility allows them to hunt down their chosen targets with the implacable patience of the dead, materialising seemingly from the very air to unleash their overwhelming firepower.
Believed long lost by the Eldar’s Seers, this detailed full resin kit, sculpted by Simon Egan, contains 5 of these mysterious and deadly Aspect Warriors.Experimental rules for the Shadow Spectres Aspect Warriors are available to download from the Forge World website, taken from the desk of Imperial Armour writer Warwick Kinrade.
The full story of the discovery of the Shadow Spectres will be featured in Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara, released later this year.
Warp Hunter Grav Tank
Eldar Warp Hunter
The Warp Hunter, perhaps the rarest of Eldar tanks, sacrifices the transport capacity of the Falcon chassis to mount the terrifying firepower of a large D-Cannon, a weapon capable of tearing open the very fabric of reality and engulfing its target in the dark energies of the Warp.
This complete resin and plastic kit, sculpted by
Stuart Williamson, adds additional mobile heavy firepower to an Eldar army.

The Warp Hunter will be fully detailed in the forthcoming Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara, but in advance of this we’ve managed to secure experimental rules for the Warp Hunter from Warwick Kinrade’s manuscript as a free download.
Both the Shadow Spectres Aspect Warrior Squad and the Warp Hunter Grav Tank are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing the 24th of January.




New Forge World: Land Raider Achilles and Mark IV Dreadnought Upgrades


Hey folks,

just a quick update on some new Forge World goodies coming out. For all you plastic crack addicts out there Forge World is the holy grail, pity it all costs as much as an Irish Economy (is that going to become a catchphrase?). Anyway in all their glory, enjoy!

Weighing in at 300 points, the Achilles will be released just in time for Christmas. Here are the rules.

Originating in the closing years of the Great Crusade, the Achilles is perhaps the rarest and most venerable Land Raider variant still used on the battlefields of the 41st Millenium. It was originally created by the Imperial Fists Legion in response to a dire xenos threat now lost to the mists of history, and fittingly rare outside the noble Imperial Fists, their successors and the Ordo Reductor of the Adeptus Mechanus. The Achilles is perhaps most vaunted for its legendary durability – each stage of the hull’s construction incorporates layer upon layer of ancient electromagnetic algorithms and ferromantic incantations. This arcane lore is etched into the very structure of the Land Raider Achilles at a molecular level, and is one the most secret and ancient rites of the Cult Mechanicus.


The Land Raider Achilles is one of the rarest and most venerable Land Raider variants. In terms of armament, it is fitted out as a heavy siege tank with multi-meltas on its sponson mounts, and a potent hull mounted Thunderfire cannon at the cost of transport capacity. The Achilles’ incredible durability exceeds that of even a standard pattern Land Raider, and its near-indestructibility has entered legend among the Adepts Astartes.

Ferromantic Invulnerability: The hull of the Achilles has been specially constructed to resist even the most determined assault and is almost preternaturally resilient. As a result, the Land Raider Achilles is not subject to the particular effects of the Lance and Melta special rules by attacks made against it. In addition it reduces the effects of all rolls on the damage chart made against it (other than by Destroyer type weaponry), by -1.
Other new releases can be found here.

Anyone know the Chapter that Achilles belongs to? As awesome as that Hurricane Bolter is I’d say it’s not going to see much use…but such…a pretty …. model….
