Word Bearer Characters

Hi all

With the coming campaign just round the corner, I would like to share with you guys what characters I am planing on doing for my word bearers, and maybe get a little advise.

Now I would be stupid not to use the characters that forge world have been nice enough to do for me, so Erebus and Kor Phaeron will be making appearances. So that just leaves two more to do.

Since I am not very good or a fan of just making new people up, I done some research to try and fine some reasonably unknown characters that would have played a big part in the pre heresy word bearers. I came across some 2 people that I found quite intriguing. Halik-gar and Maedro Vessar. Both of these are mentioned in the forge world Horus Heresy books. 



Halik-gar 
It states that Halik-gar was the High Herald of the legion and the commander before they were reunited with Lorgar. So straight away I was interested. It also states that a Herald was clad in black armour, his face hidden by a skull helm and bearing the eagle-winged mace. Now remember earlier when I said that I was looking for a little advise? The reason for this is because I am very inexperienced with playing Space Marines, so I was  looking for advise in what kind of HQ this guy should be and what should I equip him with, are there any eagle-winged maces you know off?

Maedro Vessar
For this guy, it just states that he is an iconoclast. Now I'm not sure if this just refers to the fact he is a word bearer as the legions informal name is the Iconoclast, or whether it is referring to the commander or an Ashen Circle squad, also know as an Iconoclast. Which that in mind I though it would be a good idea to have a HQ who could be a leader of the Ashen Circle. So this guy would need to have a jump pack, but the rest could really be anything. So again, what kind of HQ do you think this guy should be and which what equipment? 

Please comment below as I would much appreciate to know what you guys think. 

Thank you and take care :-)

Details from Warhammer Fest!!

Hey all!!

I must admit I have been exceptionally excited (which usually only leads to disappointment lol) over the announcement of the new event and here are some new details from the GW website:

Warhammer Fest 
  • Saturday 11th October 2014
  • Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK
  • FREE car parking adjacent to the venue 

Warhammer Fest is a celebration of everything about the worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000; the miniatures, the backgrounds, the stories and the games. You will encounter fantastic miniatures displays, seminars by our design teams, in-depth demonstrations and inspiring Design Studio displays.

You will also be able to pick up the latest releases from Games Workshop, Forge World and Black Library, including many items available for the first time over the weekend, along with exclusive event only merchandise. With such a wide range of activities, you can plan your day around specific elements, or just enjoy whatever grabs your attention.

Things to See and Do

Seminars - We will be hosting a series of seminars featuring a panel of experts from Forge World, Black Library and Games Workshop. Each seminar will focus on a specific topic and we will be repeating certain ones each day, so you can choose to attend them when it best suits your plans.

Design Teams - Black Library, Forge World and the Games Workshop Design Studios will all have areas at Warhammer Fest so you can meet the dedicated teams that bring to life the worlds we all love. This is your chance to chat with them and ask any burning questions about Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, as well as seeing their work up close and personal.

Demo Pods - These dedicated areas are spread throughout the venue and each offers a specific activity such as: painting demonstrations, gaming tactics and a series of presentations covering a range of subjects.

Archives - The miniatures we love today have a rich history behind them, so dig into the Games Workshop Archives with us to see how they’ve developed over the years. We’ll have a variety of displays on show so you can get nostalgic over classic miniatures, art and publications, and debate with your mates about your old favourites.
 

 

Things to take Home

Black Library - The brand new Horus Heresy book, Death and Defiance will be on sale at Warhammer Fest for the first time anywhere in the world. This anthology collects together five stories set across the battlefields of the Horus Heresy, and includes brand new fiction from Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Nick Kyme, James Swallow, Andy Smillie and Guy Haley.

There will be a range of pre-release titles, event exclusive art prints and more.

Forge World - Visit the popular Forge World sales area for pre-release items, including a brand new book and new models not on release anywhere else; details will be revealed nearer the event. Over the weekend you can also buy from Forge World’s vast range of models and books as well as event only miniatures, t-shirts, hoodies, bags and mugs.

Citadel - You’ll have access to the Games Workshop range at Warhammer Fest, enabling you to add the latest Citadel miniatures, books and other products to your collections.

Art Prints - Admire a gallery of art prints celebrating the stunning visual work of our design teams, with artwork showing detail beyond what you see in our publications. And if there’s something you really like, you’ll be able to buy exclusive prints of many of the pieces over the weekend.

Exclusive Event Merchandise - Get an exclusive memento of your experience with event only products to use in your games and show off to your friends.

If you want to be part of this extravaganza of all things Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, then get your ticket now as we have strictly limited numbers available for each day.


Summary by Khall Sithis:

So - there is a new anthology available from Black Library at the event for the first time; set in the Horus Heresy timeline! I will be up to date by then and it will be great to finally be able to read the most current book!

Forge World will have a new book there; could this be the next Horus Heresy book? I hope so, but highly doubt it. My belief is that it will either be a new Imperial Armour or an updated Imperial Armour!

Could the next Primarch be there too? I heard that someone has mentioned the Night Haunter...


So, what do you all think? Are you excited? Will you be there? What will be FWs next book? Could Konrad Curze REALLY be around the corner?

This does mark out our goals up to Book 3. Most of it has been purchased and we are looking forward to all dipping in to our collective mini pot. 
As many of us are big Knight fans we have decided not to put Knights into the Mechanicum list and instead let them be done as separate Knight houses. I am myself doing a House Raven house with my Brother Khall and Mega Nob is doing a Mechanicum house too. 
The Krios is near complete now too. Hopefully it will be wrapped up swiftly after getting back from France. 

Like us on Facebook and share your Mechanicum / Legion pics.

March of the colossus

This week I have put the finishing touches to my favorite non primarch models in my army, the contemptors.


This is the Iron Hands specific chassis and was an absolute dream to paint. The head especially was really fun.


This is the relic chassis and is equipped with a kheres assault cannon and a plasma blaster in his fist.


And last but not least is this guy here, this is the standard chassis and I have equipped him as a pure combat monstrosity with a heavy flamer and graviton gun in his fists.


These collossus will be the armored fist that pulverizes all enemy's of the imperium.
