Forge World Newsletter #346 - Legion Praetors and Luna Wolves Brass and Transfers

As always all the important bits below:

Horus Heresy
Hi there, We return to the Horus Heresy in today’s newsletter with the release of a fantastic Space Marine character set and new sets of Legion etched brass symbols and decals, all available to order now for immediate despatch.
Legion Praetors in Power Armour and Terminator Armour
Praetors are the mightiest warriors and battle-leaders of the Legiones Astartes, second only to the godlike Primarchs in their martial skill and generalship. Each is a vastly experienced warrior and warlord, unique in character, who has writ a legend for themselves in blood and slaughter.

These lords of the Imperium possess a panoply of the finest weapons and armour known to humanity and hold the power of life and death over worlds, with direct control over entire war fleets and great armies. In their ranks can be found Chapter Masters and Lord Commanders, Khans, Tribunes and First Captains as the traditions of the Legions dictate; regardless of title each is a master of war, and each has conquered worlds unnumbered in the glory of the Great Crusade.
The Legion Praetors set contains two incredibly detailed multi-part resin models, designed by Edgar Skomorowski. One Praetor is clad in artificer-modified Cataphractii armour, armed with an ornate paragon blade power sword and a Volkite Charger, while the other wears ornate artificer-modified MkIII ‘Iron’ armour and carries a fantastically-detailed archaeotech pistol, as well as a mighty paragon blade power sword. These two characters are fully compatible with Forge World’s Terminator and MkIV weapon sets, allowing for a great variety of wargear options. This character set is available to order now for immediate despatch.
Luna Wolves Legion Decals and Etched Brass
Designed by Paul Rudge and packed with Legion-specific heraldry, blazons and squad insignia, these new sheets of Luna Wolves Legion Transfers and Etched Brass symbols contain a variety of differently sized symbols for use with our vehicles and infantry kits. These symbols and decals are available to order now for immediate despatch.

Thanks, Ead Brown Customer Service Manager Forge World
again another great newsletter where HH fans are not disappointed. I love the Praetor models and see a strong resemblance between the Powered Armour version and the artwork we have seen of Garro. Just glad they decided to call it a Praetor and not release it as Garro and charge us £30 for just the one model.

Is this the end of the World? not quite but feels like it!

Well folks, the point that comes to many of us hobbyists has come to me! It is the end of the world! well ok maybe not but it feels close to it.

After quite a lot of deliberation I have decided that for me things are getting too costly at present, this doesnt mean I am leaving the hobby, in fact I have way too much invested in my Guard Army to give in but hard decisions had to be made.

With my wedding swiftly approaching I have taken the very hard choice and have decided to clear out many of my books, cheifly my Forgeworld books and my many rulebooks, to try and raise some funds towards my wedding. This has being doubley hard as not only are the books a great sorce of fluff but most of them are signed by the authors. However when it was a choice between having all these books sat there or actually raising some money to contribute to my wedding and honeymoon the choice was easy.

As a result I have begun to list my Forgeworld books, rulebooks, graphic novels and some Black Library stuff on ebay and I have added a few Limited Edition figures, with some that I may decide to sell at a future date (such as the 40k 25th diorama and the GW 25th Emperors Champion amongst others) depending what I can raise from my books. So if you would like to help a fellow hobbyist out and want to get some nice books at the same time please feel free to check my listings out here:
If that doesnt work my listings can be found here:
Thank you for reading this and if you decide there is anything you are interested in please bid or drop me a line.

Forge World Newsflash - Praetor Sneak Peek and Weekender Details

As always all the important bits below:

Horus Heresy
 Hi there, As you read this, we’ll be busy transforming the Nottingham Belfry Hotel into a Horus Heresy sanctum. In the meantime, we’ve got a few snippets to reveal in today’s newsflash about the event, as well as news of a Horus Heresy gaming weekend which will be held at Warhammer World later this year.
The Ultimate Horus Heresy Getaway is Almost Upon Us
This weekend, Forge World, Black Library and hundreds of Horus Heresy fans will descend upon the Nottingham Belfry Hotel for the Horus Heresy Weekender.

Please note that all tickets for this event have now sold out.
Not only will the new Event Only Davinite Serpent Lodge Priest model be available for the first time, but Weekender attendees will also have the first opportunity in the world to buy our second incredible Primarch miniature. This is the third of our collectable Horus Heresy Character Series: Simon Egan’s incredible Fulgrim the Illuminator, Primarch of the Emperor’s Children Legion.
We also expect to have small numbers of Edgar Skomorowski’s detailed Praetor Set (pictured left), and Stuart Williamson’s imposing Legion Glaive Super-Heavy Tank on sale at the event.
Around the venue, you’ll also see twenty fantastic Legion art prints, such as the one pictured left. These 200cm x 80cm prints have been exclusively produced for the Weekender, all eighteen Legions are represented (some more than once) and each is available to buy (stand not included).

We’ve also got some more fantastic event only items up our sleeves, including Loyalist and Traitor Legion posters, four different designs of Horus Heresy t-shirts and if that weren’t enough, every attendee will receive an exclusive Weekender backpack.
With seminars, Q&A’s, art showcases, signings, modelling and painting demos, open gaming and participation games, there’s almost too much to do on each day – not to mention the Horus Heresy Pub Quiz and the Zone Mortalis Last Man Standing challenge on Saturday evening.
We’re also excited to announce that Alan Bligh will be hosting an exclusive Author Death Match in the Practice Cages on Saturday afternoon, when Black Library’s John French and Aaron Dembski-Bowden take to the field of battle to play the exclusive scenario you’ll find in your programme. This is a face-off that’s not to be missed!

Horus Heresy Weekender Reservation Orders
If you’ve placed a reservation order for the Horus Heresy Weekender, you’ll now have received your confirmation e-mail. You must bring a copy of this with you to collect your order, as it is your proof of payment. Reservation orders will be available for collection from the Sales stand after 12:00 on Saturday, and we look forward to seeing you there. 
Warhammer World Horus Heresy Betrayal Gaming Weekend – 24th-25th August
This weekend is quite unlike any other, where for the first time you can bring legendary heroes like Garviel Loken or even Primarchs such as Horus the Warmaster to battle. You will experience the opening parts of Horus’ ambitions to overthrow the Emperor and set the galaxy ablaze.
Over the weekend, you’ll play four games recreating the exciting and tense battles covered in Forge World’s The Horus Heresy Book One - Betrayal. You will use the Legiones Astartes army list and appendices, allowing you to field exotic weaponry, titanic war machines and unyielding Primarchs across three games on Saturday and Sunday, culminating in a massive Doubles game on Sunday afternoon. Your ticket includes lunch on both days, plus an evening meal on the Saturday, followed by a Heresy-themed quiz.
Also on the Saturday, Black Library will be joining us to showcase their millions-selling Horus Heresy books. We can also announce that on the Sunday, the author of Betrayal, Alan Bligh will be in attendance, giving you the opportunity to have your Horus Heresy tomes signed and talk about the finer points of the book.
So, Legionary, will you fight for the Emperor of Mankind or the Warmaster Horus? Tickets are available now.

The Terminator Armour Open Challenge - Entry 5

Details of entry 5 for the Terminator challenge, including the pre-painting picture:

Name: Chris
Model Details: Ultramarines captain in terminator armour. Armed with a power sword and storm bolter. I am aware there is already literature around the captain of the first company, and having not read the recent novels I wouldnt want to upset anybody by referring to him as such. So really he's just a generic ultra captain :)
