Forge World Newsletter #327 - Imperial Armour Volume One – Second Edition: Imperial Guard
Hi there, The very first of our large Imperial Armour books returns to our online store this week in a fully revised and updated edition. Imperial Armour Volume One – Second Edition: Imperial Guard is available to order now and as we’re on the very cusp of December, we’ve also got a reminder in today’s newsletter of our upcoming order deadlines for pre-Christmas delivery.
Imperial Armour Volume One - Second Edition: Imperial Guard
Here at Forge World we've always loved
tanks, and from our very earliest beginnings it is the massed ranks of the
Imperial Guard that have inspired many of our hobbyists to take to the field of
battle. This week sees the return of the very first large Imperial Armour book
to our range, rewritten and expanded to be fully compatible with the 6th
Edition of Warhammer 40,000.
Imperial Armour Volume One - Second Edition: Imperial Guard is a book dedicated to the fighting vehicles of the Imperial Guard; the steel-clad behemoths that rumble and clank their way across the battlefields of the far future, unleashing fire and shell at the enemies of Mankind. Inside this 294-page book, the full panoply of Imperial Guard armoured vehicles are displayed in exhaustive detail, including profiles and rules for over fifty tanks, support vehicles, artillery pieces and super-heavy vehicles, alongside extensive background material on these war machines, their munitions and manufacture. You can find a full list of contents here.
In addition to this wealth of information, the book also includes a full army list that allows you to field the sledgehammer of Imperial military power: the Imperial Guard Armoured Battlegroup. On top of this are also rules for some of the most famous Tank Aces of the Imperium including General Grizmund of the 1st Narmenian Armoured Regiment, made famous in New York Times-bestselling author Dan Abnett’s Gaunt’s Ghosts novel Necropolis (also available in e-book format).
Imperial Armour Volume One – Second Edition: Imperial Guard is available to order now for immediate despatch, and we can still guarantee pre-Christmas delivery worldwide.
nice to see the book getting an update for the new rulesset, having to think about it though whereas normally i would go out and get this straight away. Its nice for the guard to get some love but im really hoping they get some HH love for the imperial army underway soon.
