    1. We think this is one of these guys described in Conquest who had half SoH and half IH heraldic - really awesome!

    2. They are planning on doing the Iron Circle. Not sure where they will fit them in unless they randomly add them to the Isstvan Legions book. I do think the IW do need some more love soon though. The Iron Havocs were made but apparently they looked so good that they may be using them as Blackshields instead.

    3. cool! Thank you and I agree, would be lovely too see some of those IW specials! Do you guys know why they designed the IW torsos the way they did? Can't seem to find a fluff reason or otherwise for it :)

    4. I emailed them about it and they literally told me that they were an experiment. Regarding the off center buckles. :-/

  3. Blackshields and shattered legions really open up the modeling and painting opportunities in Heresy. I dig it.

    1. Rubio is being worked on is Israel's spare time. We will see more definitely. There will be a "create your own" Knight Errant guide in Retribution.

  7. I can't wait got book six, as everyone has said, it'll really open up the modelling and painting opportunities without needing to commit to a whole army.

  8. Could you ask if there are plans on bridging the 30k and 40k mechanicus both ways? As in can skitarii be played in 30k and can thanatar be played in 40k.
    Also could you ask if there are plans for more ultramarines unique units to be made? Thank you in advance!!!

  9. Would really appreciate it if the bunnies could ask if a model for Exodus is coming soon.

    Really cannot wait for your coverage. Have fun.

    1. Afaik they want to do Argel Tal later - also Zardu Layak is pretty much a Gal Vorbak character already :)

  12. So I'm familiar with the Black Shields in the Deathwatch, but I've not heard of the Blackshields from the Heresy-era. Who/what are they?

  13. I like the new Princeps. I really hope they do more Princeps and Knight Scion models, to add some variety in. Male and female would be nice too, since we at least have a number of female titan princeps characters in the books. Dunno about Knights, but I've been thinking of doing a house that has the (Necromunda) House Escher genetic flaw, and thus passes down its knights to firstborn daughters.

  14. If youpcould take all the informations about the new iron hands rite and the new contemptor pattern, you'll be fantastic!
