Hi there, This week sees the release of four hotly-anticipated Astral Claws upgrade sets. We’ve also got a few more details about Forge World’s presence at the Warhammer World Badab War Campaign weekend on the 25th - 26th June, further information about Games Day Chicago and a new date for your diary, Games Day Spain in Madrid on the 3rd July.
Astral Claws Upgrade kits
Prior to the Badab War, the noble Astral Claws were renowned for their duty, loyalty and victories in the name of the Emperor. Their fall from grace under the leadership of Lugft Huron is a cautionary tale to loyal Astartes Chapters of the dangers of hubris and pride amongst their kind.
These vehicle and infantry upgrade sets bear a variety of personalised heraldry, honorific badges and honour markings such as trophies and purity seals, and display the Tyrant’s Claw symbol that became synonymous with the Chapter during its Secession from the wider Imperium.
Designed by Simon Egan, the Astral Claws Rhino Door Set and Land Raider Door Set are compatible with the Space Marine Land Raider and Rhino vehicle kits available from both Games Workshop and Forge World.
Simon has also designed two detailed infantry upgrade sets for this most ill-famed of Chapters: the Astral Claws Shoulder Pads and Terminator Shoulder Pads. These accessories can be used with the full range of plastic and resin Space Marine infantry kits available from both Forge World and Games Workshop. All four of these upgrade sets are available to order now for immediate despatch.
Badab War Campaign Weekend – 25th - 26th June 2011
Warhammer World’s Events team are re-fighting the infamous Badab War campaign over the weekend of 25th - 26th June, and there are still a few tickets available for the Secessionist side of this bloody civil war.
The complete rules for army selection can be downloaded now as part of the event pack. Head over to www.games-workshop.com and you will find it in the Badab War event pages in the Warhammer World section of the website.
There will also be the opportunity to take part in some social wargaming on the Friday evening with Boarding Action mini games being played on specially made Raptorus Rex terrain boards. This will not contribute to the overall results of the campaign, but it will be a great way to meet new people, socialize and get in some practice with your army!
The Forge World team will also be present at the weekend, with a lavish Badab War display featuring miniatures and artwork in the Gaming Hall. Imperial Armour writer Alan Bligh will be on hand to answer your questions and wax lyrical about the dark and shadowed secrets of the Badab War in addition to hosting a ticket-only Q&A session on the Saturday evening.
A selection of our previous Show Only models will be on sale in limited numbers along with this year’s MkIII Armoured Boarding Space Marine and Chaos Dwarf Hellsmith, and one or two exclusive, unseen miniatures well in advance of their scheduled release dates. That’s all we can reveal for now, but more details will follow in future newsletters.
