26/07/2013 Forge World New Stuff

Hi all

Here is Forge Worlds weekly release with descriptions. What an awesome release this is! In our recent battle report we got to see just how effective the Bolter, Bolt Pistol and Chainsword combination is and now FW have released the Legion packs for them. Also, the release of Sons of Horus Reaver Attack Squad...we do get spoiled, don't we?
Official FW description:
If fighting is expected to be at close quarters, such as in boarding actions or trench clearance, Tactical squads can sometimes forgo the standard bolter in favour of the combination of a bolt pistol and chainsword, allowing the Astartes more manoeuvrability in whatever tight confines they may find themselves in. These more assault orientated units are referred to as Despoiler Squads within the Legiones Astartes. 

Official FW description:
Reaver squads in many ways epitomised the Sons of Horus Legion’s way of war. Heavily influenced by the tactics used in the incessant tribal warfare of Cthonia, Reaver units specialised in lightning-swift assaults which maimed and disabled their foes; striking down leaders, and mercilessly cutting down any who were weak or isolated. Each Reaver unit, whether squad or entire company in strength, was effectively a warband in its own right, and its warriors fought more as individuals than regimented soldiers, and all were utterly lethal against the enemies of Mankind during the Great Crusade. 


Off to make another order lol

Catch you all soon
