Imperial Armour Volume Seven, The Siege of Vraks Part Three
Our new Imperial Armour book tells the story of the gripping conclusion to the nightmarish war for the world of Vraks. Lavishly illustrated in full colour with technical drawings and artwork. This 220 page hardback book features extensive new background text, rules and information on numerous war engines for both the forces of the Imperium and Chaos, as well as Apocalypse Battle Formations, and two new army lists.

To see a list of contents for the book click Here.

You can see some previews and page spreads of the book Here. Also we have some interactive spreads that you can see Here.

The story of the book details the final climatic struggle to decide the fate of Vraks; as the forces of the feared Inquisitor Hector Rex and the Grey Knights add their weight to the battle in a desperate attempt to stem a rising tide of Daemons and the restless dead. Dark entities are summoned by the ceaseless bloodshed from the depths of the Warp to aid the forces of Chaos, and the hellish plans of their leader Lord Zhufor, master of the Skulltakers.

The book contains detailed background descriptions and rules for many vehicles and units including the Greater Brass Scorpion, Blight Drones, Blood Slaughterer, Chaos Reaver Titan, the Minotaur and the Valdor Tank Hunter, as well as characters and unique creatures and daemons such as Inquisitor Hector Rex, Lord Zhufor, Necrosius, Mammon, the Gorefeaster and others. It also contains two complete variant army lists; the Servants of Decay and the Krieg Armoured Battlegroup and eight new Apocalypse battle formations such as the Venatarii Titan Maniple and The Purge. It features colour scheme illustrations for numerous Chaos Warbands, the Grey Knights, Angels of Absolution and Red Hunter Space Marine Chapters as well as various war machines used in the epic conflict.

The book also comes supplied with a double sided (size) poster which you can see Here featuring the dramatic scene of Inquisitor Rex`s arrival on Vraks on one side and the Reaver Battle Titan on the other.

The first 500 copies sold of Imperial Armour Volume Seven, The Siege of Vraks Part Three will be signed by the book’s principle writer, Warwick Kinrade.
