So with all of the Lovely Heresy abundant in the world today I thought I would say how I would (as a fan of all things Forge World) plan releases.
Corax for HH Weekender (to even up the amount of Loyalists to traitors). He would be set up for his momentary dynamic duel with Curze Diorama.
Mortarion for July. Would release him on 7/7/14 for giggles.
Book 4: I would put Dark Angels and Sons of Horus in a Campaign together on Diamat. This is down to how much relatively little work (compared to the others) would be required to enter the first Legion in. I would also put in some lovely galactic conquest rule sets (similar but better than Planetary Empires) so people can fight on the Galaxy as a larger conquest.
I would also put White Scars in against Orks as well as a second Alpha Legion visit for kill team size games (to go with Conquest mission tables).
I would also include a large Mechanicum army list with either the Crusader, Castellan and/or Warden class Knight.
This book I would release at Gamesday with Lion el' Johnson on a Mechanicum board and if time permitted: get the Orks from GW Heavy Metal on a display against Jaghati Khan on a GW table with his Scars. Egan would do The Lion and Edgar the Hunter (finishing all Primarchs in one book in one fell swoop and giving a year to get the backlog out).
It would also have Sigismunds' raid on Mars.
I'd also get rules for the Mammoth out and a Space Marine Fighter (Fury iir).
It would also detail the Imperial Army.
2014 - 2015
I would have Edgar do second part of a Primarch Diorama with Curze and release at Openday.
Egan would release Vulkan for HH Weekender.
Would preview Atrocity book too. Ltd edition model would be Ingethel the Daemon.
Alpharius for July by Edgar
Atrocity would be book 5. It would have the Calth Atrocity and Signus. It would also have a Cultist / Daemon list (which ties in to both). I hate the current Daemon Codex as it takes too much work to set a game up so hopefully would tie in to a new Codex release.
It would also feature the Conflict of the Iron Warriors vs the Imperial fists from Angel Exterminatus to re-ignite interest in these two Legions as their Primarchs would not have been released yet. Rules for the Iron Circle would be included.
Maybe finally a Warlord Titan.
Gamesday would see a Robute Guilliman by Edgar and a Almost finished Sanguinius (to be released Nov / Dec).
2015 - 2016
Openday would see Perturabo by Edgar and his Iron Circle as a centre piece on a lovely defensive wall board against Imperial fists with massive trenches etc designed by Blake Spence!
HH Weekender will have Dorn by Egans.
Inferno will be previewed and a ltd ed Sister of Silence would be released.
The Rout and the Thousand Sons would be featured with the Adeptus Custodes and Sisters of Silence.
It would also have the Thramas Crusade and feature the Deliverence lost battle with Raven Guard and Alpha Legion.
Gamesday would have Inferno released with Russ and Magnus (Russ by Egans and Magnus by Edgar). This will complete all Primarchs at the release of this book on Gamesday 2016.
During this entire thing I would have Edgar, Egans, Robertson, Gonzalez and Whitehead taking it in turn to release the Knights Errant models starting with Garro. This I would do as a single model every month until all are complete. Blake Spence would set up a lovely Window Cil piece for the Knights Errant to go on. Us as hobbyists love to collect, and if we had the option of buying a £15 mini a month to go onto an ongoing display I'm sorry 90% of Heresy collectors would be all over it.
That's what I would do. What would you all do?
