Forge World Newsletter #303 - Demios Executioner and Apothecary releases

As always the important bits reproduced below:

Hi there, In this week’s newsletter, two kits that were first shown at the Forge World Open Day are available to pre-order: the Deimos Pattern Predator Executioner and the Space Marine Apothecary Set.

Demios Pattern Predator Executioner
The robust and reliable Predator tank has long been favoured by the Space Marines and has seen service in a wide variety of patterns, some of which have come and gone in answer to wars and threats innumerable and long forgotten. In the conflicts of the 41st Millennium the Destructor and Annihilator patterns are the most widespread by far, although some Chapters such as the Blood Angels manufacture unique variants of their own.

One of the most prized patterns is the Deimos Pattern Predator Executioner, which mounts an Executioner pattern Plasma Destroyer. This ancient and powerful weapon fires a series of sun-hot plasma blasts capable of incinerating flesh and blasting apart even power armour with contemptuous ease. Only the forge world of Ryza is still able to manufacture the advanced photo-plasmic cells needed for the Executioner weapon. This has resulted in many chapters whose Techmarines have sufficient skill and knowledge replacing the Plasma Executioner with a Heavy Conversion Beamer instead.

This turns the Predator Executioner into an extremely powerful siege unit and long-range tank destroyer, but this firepower is gained at the cost of manoeuvrability and increased vulnerability to short-ranged attacks. That such a modification carries a long standing seal of remittance from the Adeptus Mechanicus speaks of cataclysmic battles in a forgotten age, in which such devastating firepower was more common, and more necessary.
Designed by Will Hayes, the Deimos Pattern Predator Executioner is a multi-part resin and plastic kit containing two turret weapon options and two sponson weapon options. Experimental rules for this vehicle can be downloaded from the Forge World website. To pre-order this kit, click here. The Predator Executioner will be despatched from 27th April.

Space Marine Apothecary Set
Among the many ranks and honours of the Adeptus Astartes, it is that of the Apothecary, perhaps, which holds the most respect for the import of his role.
Well versed in the arts of cybernetics, chirurgery and bioengineering required to transform a mortal aspirant into a post-human Angel of Death as well as battlefield aid, the Apothecary must also be a warrior of unquenchable bravery and might.

If a battle-brother falls, it is the Apothecary that will tend his wounds so that he may return unto the conflict. If his wounds are too great, it is the Apothecary that will grant him the Emperor’s Peace and it is the Apothecary that will ensure the Chapter’s due is taken from the battle-brother’s flesh; removing and guarding the sacred progenoid organs that will be implanted into a new aspirant.

Designed by Mark Bedford, the Space Marine Apothecary Set contains two multi-part resin models, allowing you to build Apothecaries in MkII ‘Crusade’ pattern and MkIV ‘Maximus’ pattern power armour. Each is packed with detail, from the heraldry of the Apothecarion to the many stasis-flasks and medicae-systems borne into battle by these peerless warriors. To pre-order this kit, click here. The Space Marine Apothecary set will be despatched from 27th April.
