Conquest: The armies

About three weeks ago I attended my first 40k competition since 5th edition. While I was there I took the opportunity to take a few pictures of the other entrants. Here they are for your viewing pleasure...

Pictures from WD leaked

Warhammer will never be the same!

So what I can gather from this, Tyrion (biggest prick of them all) draws the sword of Khaine. On the other hand, Malekith is revealed as the victim of a plot from 6000 years ago to deny his birthright! Teclis, the Everqueen, Malekith and co reveal more on the plan to use Nagash as their puppet... Oh and heaps of Special Characters die. I think you will find if its not plastic, its dead!

The Elven civil war ends... Surely this is the End of Times...

Pictures says a thousand words.

Elf Apocalypse: Khaine has arrived

This coming weeks White Dwarf reveals Khaine: End of Times...

What is disappointing is seeing the old Malekith model on the front cover. If ever there was an opportunity to do a dual kit Malekith and Imirik this was it. And the rumours ares thick that there will be no new models with this release. 

With all the leaks coming about it seems as if the current story theories are correct. Malekith and Teclis are plotting together to ensure Chaos does not end the world, thanks to the sacrifice of Tyrions daughter with the Everqueen, the impure blood caused Nagash to be reborn not at full strength, thus ensuring he did not march straight to his doom at the hands of the Chaos gods.

Is Malekith the true puppet master of the end of times? Nagash just a pawn in his larger game? How long will Malekith take to break the newly forge alliance o the Elf Apocalypse?

The one good thing that marches out with this release is all the cries of anguish from the sudo Elven players who somehow think that the High Elves are a force of pure good. Never has this been true of the self centered self serving fairies. The "prophecy" of all the Elven races joining forces to stop a great evil from destroying the world has been intertwined in the WHFB lore for at least a decade now. For some however, this is indeed the end of times.

Long shall Nagash's reign be. 

Will someone think of the forest goblins!

New Forgeworld Heresy Knight

Housing machine spirits which some say became too accustomed to wholesale slaughter during the Age of Strife and the Great Crusade that followed it, many of the more conservative Households consider the Styrix to be a dark and malevolent pattern of armour, the wanton slaughter it unleashes being beneath a true Knight. Other Households hold no such reservations, loosing entire formations of Styrix mark Knights to mercilessly annihilate their foes.
Armed with a devastating Volkite chieorovile and backed up with a graviton gun and twin-linked rad cleanser, the Questoris Knight Styrix is easily able to eliminate large numbers of infantry at range. Whilst in close combat, its immensely powerful hekaton siege claw can smash vehicles and tear buildings asunder, making it a powerful addition to any army.
The Questoris Knight Styrix can be fielded in Horus Heresy games using the Battles in the Age of Darkness expansion as part of the forthcoming Questoris Knight Crusade Army list or as a Lords of War choice for any Horus Heresy army. Its rules will be published in the next Horus Heresy rulebook.
This is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit, designed by Rob MacFarlane.
It is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Monday November 17th.

What I find most interesting is this sentance "The Questoris Knight Styrix can be fielded in Horus Heresy games using the Battles in the Age of Darkness expansion as part of the forthcoming Questoris Knight Crusade Army list"

So we all are anticipating the next Horus Heresy book to be released soon, so is the title "Age of Darkness"? I dont think we will have long to wait as it is just around the corner... why? well, no rules for it...
