The Horus Heresy: Retribution Seminar

Howdy :)

The Retribution Seminar has started!





Forge World Xana is a 40k Forge World which goes round the Eye of Terra selling its stuff. It is a setting for a Dark Mechanicum Forge World in the Shadow Wars.


The time line boxes will be updated throughout the weekend.




House Malinax Cerastus Knight.



The Mastodon was decided to be done a year ago. Transports can be boring so Blake wanted it to be more Killy. Like a moving Siege Tower. Blake apologises that it isn't here today because he couldn't sign it off as the bits couldn't easily be put together. He is working on it now.




Blood Angel and Blackshield. Dark Brotherhood on right was first reference in 1987.



Red butcher (repainted as they like red) and a White Scar.


The Book contains new Shadow Wars missions, rules for Shattered Legions and Armies of Dark Compliance, Knight Errants, Black Shields, new units for Mechanicum and Legions, and a lot of new special characters!

The Nemean Reaver (a Special Character for Black Shields) is not Saul Tarvitz but he is a mystery that they will not be revealed yet.

Endryd Haar pretends to be another character at the beginning. World Eater.

Autilon Skor has new rules. Alpha Legion.

Gahlan Surlak is another World Eater which is a traitor Apothecary.

Tybalt Marr is the person who convinces Horus to take the Shattered Legion seriously.

Shadrak Meduson. Can count as a Salamander, Iron Hand or Raven Guard.

Cassias Dracos Reborn. He comes back after Isstvan 5 (buried there). Salamanders had visions that they would find Vulkan under Isstvan 5 but found him instead.

Nârik Dreygur has got some rules now. Has a part in the Shadow Wars now.

Kheron Ophion is a Night Lord Character of the Kyroptera. 

Xiaphas Jurr. Salamander. The Prophet of fire "which may be hearing Vulkan's voice".

Anacharis Scoria. First Dark Mechanicum Lord and has a Scorpion body.

They voted in the room which 4 would be made. Drake lead the vote for Ophion (and was laughed down).

There is a Decal sheet for the Blackshields 2 months away.

Cortus will be available / more versions of the Contemptor in 6 months.

More Knight Errants will likely be coming. End of the seminar.


What do you guys and girls think about Retribution? What characters do you want to get done? Write us in the comments below! Thanks for reading :)

Regards,
Drake Seta, Lady Atia and the other Bunnies =)

  1. Would love to know if this means Retribution is going to have the first more solid 'Dark Mechanicum' list, with some differences to the loyal forces.

    1. I'll second that, although Draco already has a model.

  6. I join Drake, Ophion would be awesome. More Night Lord is never enough! :^D All this stuff looks pretty sweet.

    It is not related with Book 6 but : have you heard something about the Ultramarine Contemptor?

    Thank you for the report dear Lady!

  8. OOH! thats a juicy selection to pick from! Autilon Skor and Nârik Dreygur have already had models so

    1)- Gahlan Surlak - a world eater apothecary should be an interesting and barbaric model.
    2) - Anacharis Scoria - come on!! dark mechanicum with a scorpion body- he'd look the dogs b$&(*£s !
    3) - The Nemean Reaver - mystery and a character in one, bound to get made and keep Garro company
    4) - Shadrak Meduson - so multipurpose he'd bound to get made as he'll sell the three legions, could also go out on the lash with garrpo and the namean reaver for a proper booze up!

  9. Wow so much to look forward too!!! So happy I've got a Mechanicum force that I can build upon while waiting around for Book 7. Really pumped to get my hands on a copy of this! Should be an amazing book to go through!!! Thanks Bunnies!

    ReplyDelete

  13. Great news! I am pleasantly surprised that the Wordl Eaters will play a role in the new book. Autilon Skorr and Narik Dreyfur were event-only models, right? So does that mean that FW will sculpt new models for them?

    I am a bit sad, that there are no White Scars characters for the shattered Legions (I was hoping for Hibou Khan), although this was expected.

    1. Yep, Skorr and Dreygur were last years event only models.

      No special characters and units for BA, WS and DA's in Retribution - they will come later :)

    2. That works for me - more time to work on my Raven Guard part of the Shattered Legions :)

  14. Thank you very much for the job you did sharing news and pictures from the weekender.
    I have just a question about the BA: do we know what is the colour of the assault marines helmets?
