Here is another Friday's release. We see Anvilus Dynat (who we first previewed at the Weekender). The model is great looking and has some great detail.
The painter did a great job on the Tattoo.
Also we have the Xiphon Interceptor. I am a massive fan of this kit. Would like to know more about them, hopefully in a book or similar.
With unparalleled speed and manoeuvrability, the Xiphon pattern Interceptor saw increasing service in the Legiones Astartes during the dark days of the Horus Heresy. Based on ancient designs, the void and atmospheric craft carried heavy armaments into battle, allowing it to destroy both air and ground targets with apparent ease. Its pair of twin-linked lascannon and Xiphon rotary missile launcher combined with the Interceptor’s speed and agility to make it a deadly opponent from which the enemies of Mankind could not hide.
The Rotary missile Launcher is a good looking weapon. Points-wise for that armour value I am a bit dubious of it's survivability. I will be getting one for my Night Lords when I get round to them.
Could this comment be our first hint at the Age of Darkness expansion we are expecting from Games Workshop? We hope so.
Age of Darkness is referenced in Forge World books as battles in the Age of Darkness but does that constitue the FW books themselves which have always been referred to as Campaign books, with Space Marine Crusade Army lists. What do you think? comment below.
