New releases 24/03/2017

It's been a good week for Forge World releases! 

Though less common within the ranks of the Legio Custodes than their peers, those warriors who comprise the Sagittarum Guard Sodalities nevertheless fulfil a number of vital roles within the Legio’s order of battle. Their art of war, in contrast to the rest of the Custodian Guard, is focussed on the slaying of the foe primarily at distance and upon the devastating application of firepower on the battlefield. 

Get all the components and upgrades you need to assemble a set of Legio Custodes Sagittarum Guard with this bundle. You’ll receive a set of 5 plastic Custodian Guard, along with a Legio Custodes Sagittarum Guard Upgrade Set.

A variant of the Triaros Armoured Conveyor common within the Mechanicum Taghmata, the Karacnos is a dedicated assault tank, its armoured chassis and copious transport compartment devoted to the mounting and munitions store of a single heavy weapon system – a mortar battery of ‘Karacnos’ radiological warheads, designed to sweep an area clear of organic life for later acquisition by the forces of the Machine God. 

These warheads are rather volatile, meaning this tank is heavily protected by armoured shutters which provide two modelling options: the tank can have these open or closed. As well as this, its rear-mounted self-targeting lightning-blasters are movable from a resting position to battle-ready, meaning this machine can go from mobile artillery platform to true assault tank with a single command – especially given the front-mounted shock ram it shares with its ancestor

One of the most spectacular, if not the most efficient, secret weapons fielded by any Blood Bowl team is the Dwarf Deathroller. It was first used by the Dwarf Warhammerers back in ’64 and has been a regular part of many a Dwarf team's arsenal ever since. The Deathroller’s continuing popularity is no doubt due to the fact that it’s so easily improvised from the rollers found at the more sophisticated and well-kept grass-laid stadiums. Referees have done their best to keep Deathrollers off the playing field, and quite a few have ended up as flat as a pancake as a result! 

Should you be looking for an especially eye-catching and killsome Secret Weapon for your Dwarf Blood Bowl teams, this resin kit is the machine for you. Covered in appropriately boisterous details, from the goblin being mashed underfoot to the dwarf pilot cheerfully brandishing a foaming tankard of ale (we do not condone drinking and piloting anything, especially powerful death machinery). There are spikes, cogs, and an evil-looking set of lawnmower blades and even some dwarf iconography! Rules for fielding the Deathroller can be found in Blood Bowl Death Zone Season One

Also some of the Battle Bunnies will be gaming at Thone of Skulls this weekend, so stay tuned for our event coverage!

  3. Those custodes are interesting, I love the bolt calivers, the karacnos isn't my cup of tea but I look forward to facing one.
    The deathroller makes me want to start a blood bowl team, though who with I am unsure.

    1. Hi. Blood Bowl is possibly the best game GW have ever made. Get the box set with a friend 50:50 and just go for it

  4. £16 isn't too bad for the upgrade kit either for those who want a bit of variety in a small Custodes force.
