    Forge World Newsletter #340







    Hi there,
    Following its successful debut at the Forge World Open Day, the new Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus book is now available to pre-order. As well as this, we’ve also got details in this week’s newsletter of the new Forge World catalogue and a reminder of our forthcoming events.

    Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus
    http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Images/FW/IA12covernl.jpgOn the edge of the Segmentum Tempestus, the Orpheus Sector has stood as a bulwark against the outer darkness for millennia. Forged in war and preserved by the blood of the Imperium’s soldiers, it has stood against the privations of the Orks from without and the treachery of the Ruinous Powers from within, but now a new terror has risen that is beyond anything it has faced before.
    From their cold tombs beneath forbidden and dead worlds rise the Necrons of the ancient Maynarkh Dynasty. Tainted by madness and abominable hunger, undying warrior-legions and the fearsome war engines of a lost age strike without warning, seeking to exterminate the humans that now infest their former domains. Hundreds of worlds have fallen already, billions lie dead, and the fate of the sector hangs in the balance, but the Imperium has not been slow to react. The Space Marines of the Minotaurs Chapter and the relentless armies of the Death Korps of Krieg stand ready to defend the sector, but can even these forces hold before the nightmare that has come to Orpheus?
    Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus, written by Alan Bligh, is a mighty 232-page, full colour tome, packed with lavish maps, colour profiles and photographs. The horrors of the Orphean War are recounted in detail, alongside a new variant Necron army list – the Dark Harvest – which represents the tainted Maynarkh Dynasty, and full rules for new Necron units such as the Night Shroud Bomber, the Canoptek Acanthrites and the mighty Tomb Citadel.
    The book also contains a new Death Korps of Krieg army list – the Assault Brigade – updated background, units and characters for the Minotaurs Space Marine Chapter, as well as rules for numerous Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine units such as the Spartan, the Predator Infernus and the Damocles Rhino.
    Imperial Armour Volume Twelve: The Fall of Orpheus is available to pre-order now, for despatch from Friday 3rd May. Our YouTube channel contains an interview with Alan Bligh, in which he discusses the contents of the new book. We will also have copies available on our sales stands at Salute in London and AdeptiCon in Chicago.

    It's nice of them to say basically nothing about what the Dark Harvest list actually is, or how it differs from the standard Necron list

    Those who bought their books at Forge World Open Day: 1) had an opportunity to have them signed by Alan Bligh 2) received their books without damage which occurs 99.99% of the time when Forge world ships them. So in short, books from the Forge World Open Day do have a collector value.

    99.99%? Considering I have bought about a dozen books from FW and not a single one was damaged so far (and that even outside the UK!), that means I am the one lucky guy in 1.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 (yes, that is 24 zeroes). Nice!

    And so? They never do that.

    But the name of the list sounds awesome. Add in the fact that the tomb world in question is described as tainted made me hugely excited :-)

    Same here. 12 books and counting and no damages.

    Plus i bet the books sent from the ebay sellers will be just ad likely to get damaged.

    I live outside of UK too and I have all books from Imperial Armour series. All are damaged from shipping in more or less severe way. All bought directly from FW.

    Sounds like you have to blame your local UPS then. I would refuse a damaged package and would not sign the delivery when the UPS-man tried to hand me out such stuff.

    Thanks for that, the TS model was going to be the first of my FW purchases but I was concerned I'd need another IA book for the rules

    So do I and don't share your experience. I guess you've just been unlucky.

    I did have one volume, Betrayal, turned up with the front image upside down, but otherwise all have been in a good condition. They, of course, sent a replacement copy of Betrayal straight away

    You must have got the Australian edition by mistake

    I just watched the Video on FW:s webpage and noticed something in it:

    It looks like a Tomb Stalker, but it isn't... I have a Tomb Stalker myself, and the head, tail and spine are different in it. Like this:

    Re: Forge World Newsletter #340

    Its called the tomb sentinel and I believe its a fast attack option and the tomb stalker has moved to elites

    So thats the elusive Tomb Sentinel.

    It's a truly pathetic alternative to the Tomb Stalker. 2 attacks base unless DOC got that wrong too, otherwise the same stats/rules wise. All for this ridiculous thing:

    Armed with and Exile Cannon
    Rg 12" Str X AP - Heavy 1 Blast
    The number of models hit under the template have to take a strength test or be removed no saves allowed. It is random which models are hit.
