Forge World have released their most recent newsletter, Forge World Newsletter #209 which has details of the rather nice Chaos Brass Scorpion. Details of new rules will be in the third Siege of Vraks book due this year.
Forge World must have scorpions on the brain this month, as there are also releases for the Red Scorpions Space Marine Chapter.
Even though winter grips us with an icy hand here at Forge World, it hasn`t stopped us getting your orders out, and this newsletter we have something extraordinary for you in the shape of our Chaos Brass Scorpion of Khorne.
As well as this great new model, we have some requested heavy re-enforcement options for the Red Scorpions and our first event of the year.
Chaos Brass Scorpion of Khorne
The Brass Scorpion is a terrifying daemonic engine of destruction dedicated to the Chaos God Khorne, Lord of Slaughter. This nightmarish construct, as much hell-spawned beast as war machine, it storms across the battlefield like a monstrous predator hunting and killing. Its huge claws are capable of shredding armour with ease and its firepower laying waste to swathes of enemy infantry. Even in destruction the foes of Chaos have learned to fear this unholy war machine, as its infernally-charged reactor erupts to scorch the battlefield with the fury of its death-throws.
The Brass Scorpion of Khorne is a fantastically impressive resin model designed by Daren Parrwood, and both an assembled example and a version painted by Mark Bedford can be seen pictured Here. The models has some superb details such as the tangled web of cabling and writhing bodies beneath its angled armour plating, and it can be built in a variety of poses. There is also a 360 degree view of the painted Brass Scorpion here.
A super-heavy war machine, rules for the Brass Scorpion of Khorne can be found in Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse available from Games Workshop, and it will also be included as a new variant in our forthcoming book Imperial Armour Volume Seven: The Siege of Vraks Part 3.
The Chaos Brass Scorpion of Khorne is available to pre-order now for release the week commencing the 23rd of February.
Red Scorpions Thunderhawks and Pre-Heresy Land Raider
With the recent release of our Red Scorpions chapter-specific Rhino and Land Raider doors, we are now able to offer our existing Warhammer 40,000 scale Pre-Heresy Land Raider, Thunderhawk Gunship, Thunderhawk Transporter with Rhinos and Thunderhawk Transporter with Land Raider with Red Scorpions chapter-specific iconography. So if you are a Red Scorpions Space Marines player looking for add some heavy firepower to your Apocalypse games, or make sure your armoured support arrives on time, a Thunderhawk can serve as a fantastic reminder for your opponent why the Space Marines are also known as the Angels of Death.
These Red Scorpion models are available to pre-order now for release the week commencing the 23rd of February.
Our first event of the New Year, Forge World will be attending the Salute games show at the London Excel Centre on Saturday 28th March, were we will have a selection of our models. You can also place a reservation order to pick up and pay for on the day, either by giving us a ring or sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday the 13th of March.
I seem to be in the minority as I really quite like this model, and if you read this blog I am not a fan of Chaos one bit!
