News: Forgeworld Newsletter #237

Hello all, Chris here. The latest FW newsletter is out and there are some exciting new releases heading our way. The Raven Guard get a special character as well as an upgrade pack, and the Orks are getting the massive new Warkopta! You can just imagine a squad of these flying across the battlefield.

"Hello There,
We`ve lots of new releases for you this newsletter, with some serious reinforcements on the way for both the Raven Guard Space Marines and the Orks! All of this is of course because our latest Imperial Armour book, Raid on Kastorel-Novem, has just hit the shelves, (so to speak). This tells the story of a surprise attack by the forces of the Imperium against a vital Ork world and the desperate battles that follow. You can see more about our new book Here.

Alan Bligh

The Raven Guard
A notably grim and resolute Chapter of the 1st Founding of the Space Marines, the Raven Guard are masters of guerrilla tactics, surprise assaults, sowing terror and the execution of the brutal and overwhelming killing blow. Their black-clad Space Marines strike fear into the hearts of the enemies of humanity, while their war machines are adorned with symbols of death and inescapable fate.

Shadow Captain Korvydae
Shadow CaptainDesigned by Simon Egan, this is simply one of the most fantastically detailed 28mm models you will ever see, and if you don't believe me just look at the Gallery shots which you can find Here! A Space Marine Captain equipped with a jump pack and a Thunderhammer, Korydae is a fearsome opponent in combat, exemplifying his Chapter's mastery of hit and run tactics. Full rules for Shadow Captain Korvydae can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 8, Raid on Kastorel-Novem.
Shadow Captain Korvydae is available to pre-order Now from the Forge World Webstore for release the week commencing the 24th of May.

Raven Guard Upgrade Set
Raven Guard Upgrade Also available to pre-order is our Raven Guard upgrade set, designed by Simon Egan and Will Hayes. This set contains highly detailed Raven Guard Mark VI 'Corvus' pattern armour helmets, torsos, shoulder plates and backpacks for use in conjunction with the Games Workshop Space Marine plastic infantry kits. The set contains enough parts to make five marines in Mark VI armour in combination with plastics including a Veteran Sergeant, as well as five alternate pattern Sternguard bolters. You can see some gallery images of models made with these much anticipated upgrades Here.
The Raven Guard upgrade set is available to pre-order Now from the Forge World Webstore for release the week commencing the 24th of May.

The Orks!
Brutal alien killers who live only for war, the Orks are a savage scourge on the galaxy whose ceaseless battles with the Imperium have resulted in an endless struggle for mankind's survival in the grim darkness of the far future. The only thing more dangerous than the Orks themselves is the crude but deadly technology they wield, able to smash and rip apart their enemies with shot, shell, energy blast and hydraulic claw.

Ork Warkopta
WarcoptaDesigned by Phil Stutcinskas with crew by Mark Bedford, these intricate and more than slightly crazed flying machines are designed for one thing only; getting a mob of boyz into combat as fast as possible, with the added bonus of being able to shout insults at the footsloggers down below as they fly over their heads. The Warkopta is a full resin model and looks hugely Orkish as you can see Here, with twin chain-driven whirling blades, engines, rattler guns and lots of added detail, it even comes with a set of arms to enable you to model Games Workshop's plastic Orks clinging on for dear life!
Rules for the Ork Warkopta can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 8, Raid on Kastorel-Novem.

The Ork Warkopta is available for pre order Now from the Forge World Webstore for release the week commencing the 24th of May.
