++++ MESSAGE BEGINS ++++
Hot on the heels of our release announcement for ‘Imperial Armour Volume Five: The Siege of Vraks – Part 1’, we have some more releases in this newsletter to help you re-create the epic struggle for this war torn world in the shape of a new Warhammer 40,000 Trench System and our special new Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squads, allowing you to fill your Gorgon transports with their full complement of cargo or man your trenches with rank after rank of grim Imperial troops. We also have two brand new sheets of etched brass to tempt both the followers of Khorne and collectors of Dark Angels Space Marines.
(Of course, as I’ve been away in the USA and Canada for the last two weeks meeting lots of you at the two most recent Games Days, the vast majority of this newsletter is the work of our very own Mr Alan Bligh, and I have just added the odd bit here and there. Thanks for your help Alan!)
Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Trench System
In concert with Imperial Armour Volume Five, we’ve created a range of terrain pieces allowing you to re-create the brutal trench fighting that takes places on Vraks, or indeed any other war-torn battlefield of your choice. Our system features a wide range of options and combinations including fortified firing posts, Death Korps heavy weapons, as well as trench equipment, ladders and a bunker strongpoint. The huge flexibility of the Trench System allows you to create your own unique network of trenches and fortifications for your battles and is intended to be used a part of a purpose made board in conjunction with other terrain.
Trenches are such a simple battlefield terrain feature but until now were a real challenge to make on your own. To use the trenches you just need two sheets of 1 inch/25mm thick polyfoam sheet available from almost every home-improvement store, cut the shape of the trench out of both and drop them in. It really is that simple! See an example of how to build and use the new 40K Trench System here.
Our new 40K Trench System is available to pre-order now for release week commencing the 21st of May. Click here to pre-order yours at the Forge World online store.
With an absolute minimum of effort, the Trench System can easily be converted for use by non-Imperial 40K armies too. File off or deface a few Aquila symbols, add a bit of damage, graffiti and other such characterful bits and pieces and then Ork Warbosses and Chaos Warmasters can hold an over-run Imperial position…
The Trench System breaks down into the following sets:
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – TRENCH SET 1 (3X STRAIGHTS, 2X CORNERS)
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – TRENCH END WITH GUN MOUNT
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – TRENCH BUNKER
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – TRENCH SUPPORT STRUT WITH LIGHT X6
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – LADDERS, FIRING STEPS & BRIDGES
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – EQUIPMENT (SCANNER, GENERATOR ETC.)
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – TRENCH END WITH LADDER X2
40K TRENCH SYSTEM – HEAVY WEAPONS (STUBBERS & AUTOCANNON) WITH 3 CREW
Death Korps of Krieg Gorgon Infantry
Characterful, beautifully detailed and oh-so-useful. These terms all perfectly describe our next release; Death Korps of Krieg Gorgon Infantry. These are special single part castings of up to six guardsmen in line abreast, designed to allow you to fit the full complement of 50 Death Korps Guardsmen in a Gorgon. You can now rumble implacably across the table and sow a little terror in your opponent’s mind by showing them just how many troops you’re assaulting with! Another great use for these troops is to line the new 40K trench system shown above with them as they mass, ready to ‘go over the top’! As well as being a useful representation for the Warhammer 40K player, they are also lovely models and I’ve no doubt they’ll grace many display pieces and dioramas too.
These new Gorgon Infantry models are available either on their own or bundled with either of our Gorgon Assault Transport variants, and are available for pre-order at the Forge World online store now for release week commencing the 21st of May.
New Etched Brass – Khorne & Dark Angels
Khorne players for Warhammer Fantasy as well as Warhammer 40K will want to take a look at this new sheet of etched brass Khorne symbols and icons. Ranging from the simple Khorne symbols a mere 2mm or 1/16 of an inch across that you see in the top right of the sheet, to the incredible, much larger icons in the top left and bottom right. I can see these finding use on shields, barding and banners for Warhammer players and then again being used by 40K Khorne followers on Dreadnoughts, Chaos Space Marine shoulder pads and armoured vehicles.
Dark Angels collectors will also have a wide variety of icons and symbols to adorn their forces with. From the tiny Chapter icon that is small enough to grace individual weapons to huge armoured plates proclaiming the proud ancestry of this, the very first Chapter of Imperial Space Marines. Take a closer look here.
Both these stunning new etched brass sheets are available for pre-order at the Forge World online store now for release week commencing the 21st of May.
