Forgeworld Newsletter #209


Fresh from Forgeworld - check out the Brass Scorpion!

"Hello There,
Even though winter grips us with an icy hand here at Forge World, it hasn`t stopped us getting your orders out, and this newsletter we have something extraordinary for you in the shape of our Chaos Brass Scorpion of Khorne. As well as this great new model, we have some requested heavy re-enforcement options for the Red Scorpions and our first event of the year.
ThanksAlan Bligh

Chaos Brass Scorpion of KhorneThe Brass Scorpion is a terrifying daemonic engine of destruction dedicated to the Chaos God Khorne, Lord of Slaughter. This nightmarish construct, as much hell-spawned beast as war machine, it storms across the battlefield like a monstrous predator hunting and killing. Its huge claws are capable of shredding armour with ease and its firepower laying waste to swathes of enemy infantry. Even in destruction the foes of Chaos have learned to fear this unholy war machine, as its infernally-charged reactor erupts to scorch the battlefield with the fury of its death-throws.

The Brass Scorpion of Khorne is a fantastically impressive resin model designed by Daren Parrwood, and both an assembled example and a version painted by Mark Bedford can be seen pictured Here. The models has some superb details such as the tangled web of cabling and writhing bodies beneath its angled armour plating, and it can be built in a variety of poses. There is also a 360 degree view of the painted Brass Scorpion here.

A super-heavy war machine, rules for the Brass Scorpion of Khorne can be found in Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse available from Games Workshop, and it will also be included as a new variant in our forthcoming book Imperial Armour Volume Seven: The Siege of Vraks Part 3.
The Chaos Brass Scorpion of Khorne is available to pre-order now for release the week commencing the 23rd of February.

So if you are a Red Scorpions Space Marines player looking for add some heavy firepower to your Apocalypse games, or make sure your armoured support arrives on time, a Thunderhawk can serve as a fantastic reminder for your opponent why the Space Marines are also known as the Angels of Death.

Damn that think looks sweet. With that much flat armour it would take a good painter to pull the model off. I'd try anyway because it looks fun, but it's too much bank.
