Forge World Openday previews flooding in.

First off we have the Falchion. 

The Falchion uses a potent weapon which combines technologies fielded in the Fellblade and the Shadowsword super-heavy tank. The Falchion’s twin-mounted Volcano cannon is one of the most powerful vehicle-mounted, anti-tank weapons in the Imperium’s arsenal and it requires such an investment in resources to construct just a single example that its use is limited to the Legiones Astartes. Even then, the Falchion is so rare that most Legions maintain but a handful, reserved for use against the largest of enemy war machines.

The Falchion was developed long before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and as such its prey was not the enemy Titans it would later see such extensive combat against. As the Great Crusade expanded ever outward, the Expeditionary fleets encountered a staggering array of foes, some of whom were of a truly gargantuan scale, but all were set to ravening flame by the touch of the Falchion’s Volcano cannon.

Bet it will look excellent in Iron Warrior colours. 

two new Cityscape tiles too. 

In a galaxy where conflict is commonplace, Imperial architecture is often by necessity fortified against possible attack. Should the Alien, the Traitor or the Heretic attempt to assault an Imperial world, more often than not it is the great cities of humanity that become battlegrounds. Large industrial facilities are transformed into key objectives, with generatorum nexus' becoming vital sources of power and manufactorum sectors providing much-needed supplies or raw materials.

It will be an expensive Sunday now. We will be reporting on the Openday on the fly as always. Last year we were the first to bring you the Battle of Phall and Lorgar at Gamesday. Follow us on Facebook and don't forget to come visit us on Sunday!
