Happy New Year from all at Forge World! In this, our first Newsletter of 2011, we have two new Space Marine releases to start the year, along with additional Badab War content now available to download and news of the first three events that we’ll be attending this year.
Thanks, Ead Brown
Tyberos the Red Wake, Available to Pre-Order Now
Tyberos the Red Wake is a uniquely detailed multi-part resin kit designed by Will Hayes. Tyberos was presumed to be the commander of the Carcharodons Chapter during their unlooked-for and savage intervention in the Badab War, leading his Terminator-armoured brethren in bloody assault after bloody assault from the notorious battle barge Nicor.
Tyberos gained a dark fame for his brutal combat prowess and the two unique power weapons with which he carved a path of mangled and shredded corpses through the Secessionist forces. Known as ‘Hunger’ and ‘Slake’ these ancient relic-gauntlets, which combine barbed power blades with an inner maw lined with vicious teeth, are of a pattern and manufacture unknown to the Adepts of Mars.
With devastating special rules published in Imperial Armour Volume 10: The Badab War Part 2, Tyberos the Red Wake adds deadly close combat capacity to a Codex Space Marines army, and allows a unit of lightning claw-equipped Assault Terminators to be chosen as a Troops choice. This sinister special character is available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing the 24th of January.
Black Templars Transfer Sheet, Available to Pre-Order Now
A4 Black Templars Transfer Sheet, designed by Paul Rudge, is packed with over a thousand individual Chapter badges, Crusade heraldry, mottos, litanies and blazons that can be used on vehicles and infantry.
The Black Templars Transfer Sheet is available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commending the 24th of January.
Additional Badab War Content Available to Download Now
The Forge World warehouse has been relentlessly shipping Imperial Armour Volume 10: The Badab War Part 2 for the past few days, and we’re glad to announce that all pre-orders for this extremely popular book have now been despatched.
Alan Bligh’s first draft contained several extra scenarios that we didn’t have room to print in the book, and the first of these is now exclusively available to download here (Red Hour) and here (The Doom of Hive Dominar). To get the most out of these scenarios will require Imperial Armour Volume 9 and Imperial Armour Volume 10, as each provides a unique tactical challenge based on some of the major engagements in this most bloody conflict. You can also find two new special characters, Arch-Centurion Carnac Commodus and Master Harath Shen, to add to the bloody legend of the Badab War on the tabletop.

The Forge World Open Day, Nottingham – 3rd April 2011
Warhammer World in Nottingham will play host to the fifth annual Forge World Open Day on Sunday the 3rd of April. We’ll be bringing you huge participation games, our annual Painting Competition and the return of our Charity Titan Raffle.
What’s more, our entire Studio team of writers, sculptors and graphic artists will be present for you to chat to, and they’ll have displays of work-in-progress miniatures, artwork, and forthcoming Imperial Armour books for your perusal.
Our vast sales stand will, as always, be packed with our full range of products including some top-secret new releases.
Stay tuned to our Events Pages for more details about this ever-popular event, which will again be free to attend.
Salute, London – 16th April 2011
The ExCel centre in London will be the venue for the popular Salute show which we are excited to be again attending. Our sales stand will be jam-packed with a lavish selection of the Forge World range of products as well as new releases and Warhammer Historical rulebooks.
Keep an eye on our Events Pages, where we’ll be bringing you more information about our presence at Salute 2011.
I must say I like the look of the unsual terminator armour on the Space Shark Character, pretty sure that will be turning up in a conversion or too. Only hope they make some variant armour for mixing in to normal squads rather then just this version. Other then that good rules and nice scenarios.
Not a bad little issue even if there are only two releases lol!
