Forge World Newsletter #264 - Imperial Guard Galore!

As always the important bits reproduced below:


Hi There, We have a newsletter packed with Imperial Guard releases for you this week: a brand new super heavy tank, three new detailed infantry upgrade sets and two new transfer sheets. We also have more information about our first three events of 2011, and we’re also making a few changes to the process of placing Reservation orders for the Open Day, so read on for more.
Thanks, Ead Brown

Malcador Infernus Heavy Tank
The venerable Malcador chassis, a precursor to the Leman Russ battle tank in the Imperial arsenal, is capable of mounting a wide range of devastating weaponry. The Malcador Infernus is one such variant, and is armed with a centre-line Inferno Cannon capable of engulfing the enemy in a storm of burning promethium. The Infernus is a powerful weapon deployed both against enemy fortifications and massed infantry.

This resin and plastic kit, designed by Phil Stutcinskas and Daren Parrwood, will be fully detailed in Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara, published later this year, but we have managed to secure these experimental rules that you can download now.
The Malcador Infernus is available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing the 28th of February

Cadian Hostile Environment Conversion Sets
Many worlds in the vast Imperium of Man boast conditions inimical to human survival, yet are critically important due to the mineral wealth they contain or their strategic worth. Imperial forces fighting in these deadly warzones rely on hostile environment equipment to enhance their body armour and survive.

The Cadian Hostile Environment Conversion Set contains 10 resin torsos, sculpted by Stuart Williamson and Mark Bedford, for use with the plastic Cadian range of kits available from Games Workshop.

Mark and Stuart have also sculpted the Cadian Hostile Environment Plasma Squad which contains enough resin torsos to build three Special Weapon teams, and again is suitable for use with the plastic Cadian range.
The Cadian Hostile Environment conversion set and Plasma squad are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing the 28th of February.

Imperial Guard Transfer Sheets

Two new A4 decal sheets are also available to pre-order in this Newsletter – the Imperial Guard White Vehicle Transfer Sheet and Imperial Guard Black Vehicle Transfer Sheet. Each contain well over a thousand individual decals including regimental insignia and blazons, kill markings, vehicle names in different styles, and also feature both the Aquila and Machina Opus symbols – a plethora of different decals to truly individualise your Imperial vehicles.
Both the Imperial Guard Black Vehicle Transfer Sheet and the Imperial Guard White Vehicle Transfer Sheet are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing the 28th of February.


Some very nice stuff in this months news letter, interesting to finally have a title for IA:11. The new Guard bits do look good but its a shame their another variation on Gas Mask Cadians, rather then say great coats or cold weather gear. Now dont get me wrong I will end up getting some as its not a bad value way of getting Gas Mask plasma gunners but I dont know they could have done so much more with them!
Also the Malcador looks good but to me only seems practical in very large games. Still looks good and it is another tank to drool over!

One thing thats puzzled me and I dont know if anyone can answer it but where is the third guard conversion pack they mention? I can only assume its extreme guard with melta guns but they dont seem to have included it in the newsletter. Anyone know or heard anything?
Cheers and Enjoy!
