Forgeworld: Newsletter #220

Hey all, the Forgeworld newsletters keep coming fast and furious! Plenty of new goodies in this too for you Ork players out there. That new dread and Kill Krusha tank are amazing!:

"Hi There,

Another Games Day UK update for you, and this time some heavy reinforcements for the Orks in the shape of two major releases; the savage Kill Krusha ‘Eavy Tank and the armour-shredding mechanised power of the Mega-Dread, backed up by a new Ork vehicle upgrade of Grot Sponsons. Meanwhile Forge World is in fevered preparation for the fast-approaching Games Day event, and we should have some more surprises for you yet to come.

Ork Kill Krusha ‘Eavy Tank
Rolling onto the battlefields of the 41st millennium for the first time is our new Kill Krusha ‘Eavy Tank for the Orks. This fearsome model is a huge full resin super-heavy tank kit for the Orks, and is designed by Daren Parrwood with crew by Mark Bedford. The intricate detail on this model really has to be seen to be believed, and it includes some incredible interior work as you can see Here as well as one Ork tank ‘Kommanda’ three Grots (and a Squig!) as crew. This giant tank is a combination of the Ork`s love of speed and violence, with overcharged engines to launch it across the battlefield (well most of the time), and a main ‘Kannon’ able to fire a number of different shell types to rain carnage down on their enemies.

You can find experimental rules for the Kill Krusha Here.

We should have some Kill Krushas for sale at Games Day UK, and the model is available for pre-order Now for release the week commencing the 28th of September.

Ork Mega-Dread
Just what every mekboy wants; an even bigger `Dread! This large new model which you can see Here is a great addition the Ork ranks; a smoke-belching, hydraulic monster able to tear apart enemy tanks and smash a side lesser war machines with contemptuous ease. Designed by Phil Stutcinskas with pilot by Mark Bedford, this is another amazingly detailed model which, standing at over 5” tall, dwarves a Space Marine Dreadnought.

Just as with our Space Marine Dreadnoughts we are selling the main body of the Mega-Dread (which also comes with two ‘Gatling gun style’ big Shootas) and its weapon arms separately. The two arms we are releasing with it are the Mega-Dread Killkannon arm and the Mega-Dread Rippa-Claw arm. Both of these weapon arms are designed to fit on either side of the Mega-Dread’s body allowing you to customise it as you wish.

Ork Mega-Dread Killkannon
The Mega-Dread Killkannon is a large bore cannon which is fed shells revolver-style from a rotary magazine, and allows the Mega-Dread to tote an artillery piece as easily as an Ork Boy would his shoota, blasting the Mega-Dread’s path through the enemy.

Ork Mega-Dread Rippa-Claw
The Mega-Dread Rippa-Claw is a huge mechanical pincer-claw designed to punch through the toughest armour, and it lets the Mega-Dread rip great chunks of wreckage from enemy vehicles and dismantle siege defences and bunkers piece by piece.

You can find experimental rules for the Ork Mega-Dread Here.

We should have some Mega-Dreads, Mega-Dread Killkannons and Mega-Dread Rippa-Claws for sale at Games Day UK, and the model is available for pre-order Now for release the week commencing the 28th of September.

Ork Grot Sponsons
Our last new Ork Preview is our Grot Sponsons designed by Mark Bedford and Daren Parrwood, designed to be added onto existing Ork vehicles to give them a little more firepower in the shape of Big Shootas with Gretchen gunners. The packet contains two different Grot Sponsons to add to your Big Trukks, Battlewagons, Kill Krushas and custom Ork builds. For pictures of Grot Sponsons on Ork vehicles click Here.

You can find experimental rules for the Grot Sponsons Here.

As with this newsletter’s other previews the Grot Sponsons should be available to buy at Games Day UK and will go on general release in October.
