Default [News] Imperial Armour: Apocalypse & 'Steel Fury' Baneblade Company

From the latest Forgeworld Newsletter:
Quote:

Our preview this newsletter is for the upcoming book; Imperial Armour Apocalypse. This new hardback contains everything you`ll need to use your collection of Forge World models to fight apocalyptic battles in conjunction with Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse. Imperial Armour Apocalypse can be also be used for Warhammer 40,000 and it replaces Imperial Armour Update 2006, plus it updates the Imperial Armour hardback books where necessary. The book is packed with 67 new datafaxes, covering our range from Imperial Guard super-heavy tanks like the Shadowsword, and Malcador, to the terrifying weapons of Chaos and their Daemon Lords, to the war machines of the Orks and Eldar and monstrous creatures like the Scythed Hierodule and Trygon.
There are also 25 new battle formations, including the Space Marine Drop Pod assault force, Ork Tanka Mobs, Eldar Serpent Rider Hosts, Winged Tyranid Swarms and Tau Pathfinder Search and Destroy Cadre to the Necron Undying Legion and the Chaos Deathclaw Talon wing.

Pretty cool Baneblade squadrons, and nice for imperial players... Think its the same for me to get a Scorpion as it is for you guys to have 3 banblades.

After playing Apocalypse with a Storm Blade on one side and a Bane Blade on the other they are both very nast bits of kit and comeing up against 3 would be a right pain.

Take it Easy

Ah.. so this is where the rules for the Lascannon Malcador will be. I hope the book isn't too expensive. Actually, stupid question - it's an Imperial Armour book, of course it's going to be expensive. I'd better hope someone's feeling real nice to me around Christmas time...

They are huge in size, about the size of the 40k rulebook, containing rules for whole armies, fluff, rules for different games etc, combined with the fact they are hardback, means they cost alot.
