Default New FW IG stuff

Hi There,

Games Day UK is now less than a week away and here at Forge World there is frenetic activity in preparation for the show. But as promised, I have some more new releases for you this Newsletter with the Hades Breaching Drill, the Mole Launcher and brand new super-heavy vehicle; the Imperial Minotaur. Itís shaping up to be a great show and we hope to see you there.

Keep an eye out for one more last minute newsletter before the show!

Thanks
Alan Bligh



Games Day Availability of these New Models
We are hoping to have limited numbers of these great new models available at Games Day hot off the production lines, but these will only be available on a first-come-first-served basis and we cannot take reservation orders for them. The models are also available for pre-order now for release on the 22nd of September.



The Imperial Minotaur
The Imperial Minotaur with Earthshaker Cannon is a mobile super-heavy artillery piece armed with twin Earthshaker cannon mounted on a heavily modified Malcador chassis. Designed by Darren Parrwood this gothic-industrial style war machine comes with both a Imperial Guard and a Renegade crewman and may be used by either of these forces in the Siege of Vraks. You can find pictures of this fantastic new model Here.

The Imperial Minotaur is available for pre-order now, for release the week commencing the 22nd of September.

Death Korps of Krieg Mole Launcher
The Mole Launcher is a specialised weapon employed to great effect by the Death Korps Engineers. Utilising a specialised burrowing warhead the mole launcher propels its shells through rock and earth to detonate in the target area, and is a powerful weapon in tunnel and trench fighting, and used to attack enemy bunkers and vehicles. This set comprises of a highly detailed two-man mole launcher team and has been designed by Will Hayes, Simon Egan and Mark Bedford, and you can see pictures of them Here.

The rules for using the Mole Launcher can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 6: The Siege of Vraks Part 2, and bought as an upgrade to a Krieg Engineer squad.

The Death Korps of Krieg Mole Launcher is available for pre-order now, for release the week commencing the 22nd of September.


Free Siege of Vraks Poster!
While stocks last, every Forge World Imperial Armour hardback book sold at Games Day UK will come with a free copy of our new Siege of Vraks Part 2 poster, this poster will be unfolded and supplied without a tube.


Hades Breaching Drill
The Hades is a standard pattern breaching device, a tool used for excavation and assaulting fortified positions which using its rotating power cutters and melta can bore through rock, earth and steel with equal ease. Used in the desperate tunnel fighting in the battle for Vraks by the Engineers of the Death Korps of Krieg, the Hades is a powerful tool allowing them to undermine the strongest defences and launch raids into the heart of the enemy, striking unexpectedly from below. Designed by Will Hayes you can see pictures of this unique model Here and rules for its use in Warhammer 40,000 can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 6: The Siege of Vraks Part 2.

The Hades Breaching Drill is available for pre-order now, for release the week commencing the 22nd of September.


Games Day UK
Games Workshop`s premiere event, Games Day UK will be taking place on the 14th of September, and it`s going to be a great event. Forge World will be attending in force, with a huge range of our stock available, and our whole studio team on hand, as well as displays and games and a whole host of new releases for you.

Unfortunately as we are now close to the event, we can no longer take reservation orders for Games Day UK.

Oh my goodness, the minotaur is probably one of the greatest models FW has ever put out.

Everything, from the backward configuration of the cannon to the breech cap to the gun rests to the crew ramp, EVERYTHING just screams awesomeness. Despite the goofy side paneling on the gun brace, it is a fantastic model.

That said, the Drill and Mole Launcher are pretty damn cool as well, the little conveyor belt on the drill is a nice touch, I can see they pulled the idea right from the coal mines of the southern US. Very cool.

Can't wait for people to start buying these and painting them up really nicely.

You literally ripped the words from my lips, good sir.

I wonder if someone's tried to make a huge cannon like that. I saw someone on Warseer had made a huge railroad cannon, more like an ultra heavy mortar though.

It's something I've always wanted to try...
