Games Workshop have announced that there will be a plastic Heavy Siege Tank for The Horus Heresy.
Named for the ‘Great Beast’ of Ancient Terran myth, the immense Typhon Heavy Siege Tank was developed by the Mechanicum alongside the Spartan, with which it shares a basic chassis design. The Typhon’s primary armament is the massive Dreadhammer cannon, and was created in response to a request from the Primarch Peturabo, master of the Iron Warriors. He demanded a Legiones Astartes war engine that could rival the great batteries of the Imperial Crusade Army in firepower, but manoeuvre and deploy at the speed of a Space Marine force.
I’ve always liked the Forge World model and I took a photograph of this Imperial Fists painted model at Warhammer World on a visit a few years ago.
There are some great Horus Heresy models available now and the question I have is, which one do I get next after I finish painting my Land Raiders.
One thought on “Plastic Typhon Heavy Siege Tank on the horizon”
