Imperial Armour Volume 4 – The Anphelion Project (Plot)

When Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Solomon Lok receives orders to investigate the loss of astropathic communications from a moon in the Anphelion system, he begins a journey into darkness, horror and treachery. Assisted by Space Marines of the Red Scorpions Chapter, Elysian Drop Troops of Special Detachment D-99 and Guardsmen of the 266th Cadian Regiment, Lok’s forces are faced by mist enshrouded swamps and a deserted laboratory facility. Soon, Lok and his men encounter the horror of the laboratory’s escaped subjects – the Tyranids. Amongst the ammonia-swamps of Beta Anphelion IV and along the corridors of the Anphelion base, Lok must fight to recover the lab’s secret data and escape before being overrun by the Tyranids lurking outside. But even as Lok fights for his very survival, all is not as it seems within the ranks of the Ordo Xenos. Make no mistake; this is a dark and savage story.

Inside this 176 page large format hardback book you’ll find details and information on the Tyranid creatures spawned by the Hive Mind and the fighting machines used by the Imperium. We’ve included background information, interior details, technical specifications, illustrations, colour schemes and rules for using all these monsters, creatures, vehicles and troop types in the special scenarios within the book and in other games of Warhammer 40,000.

The book uses lots of colour and black and white pictures, full colour Imperial vehicle and Tyranid creature profiles, technical drawings plus organisation charts and scenarios. There is also an army list for the Elysian Drop Troop veterans of Special Detachment D-99, new background and rules for the Red Scorpions Space Marine Chapter and details on Inquisitor Lok and his retinue. In the next few Forge World Newsletters we will be showing you a whole pile of new models that can be used for re-creating the savage encounters between the Tyranids and the Imperial forces. Believe me; some of these are just GORGEOUS!
