  1. Someone forgot to put the parking brake, so it toppled a series of gothic columns filled with servitors in a comical way that eventually damaged a priceless STC for yo-yos.
  2. New for HH and 40K the Sicaran Punisher Assault Tank.

    "The Punisher-type Sicaran variant came into general use amongst the various Space Marine Legions in the final days of the Great Crusade, however the punisher rotary cannon it mounts has a far older history. Originally mounted on the now rare Cerberus pattern main battle tanks, the punisher had established a reputation as a deadly tool in the eradication of massed conscript infantry or hordes of swarming xenos creatures, limited only by its relatively short range and prodigious appetite for munitions. Married to the Sicaran hull, where the impressive speed of that vehicle effectively negated the short range of the weapon, and the complex feed assemblies developed as part of the various Terran accelerator cannon, the punisher is once again in widespread use among the Legions, though now it is employed against the very warriors it was intended to protect."

    "This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Legion Sicaran Punisher Assault Tank, a Heavy Support choice for Space Marines in The Horus Heresy and an Elites choice in Warhammer 40,000. A high-speed ‘destroyer’ tank, the Sicaran Battle Tank has seen countless battlefields, complementing the more common Predator and Land Raider designs. This variant boasts the same basic hull shape – very much a case of function over form, though its wide tracks and thick armour give the miniature a certain austere charm – with an imposing punisher rotary cannon bolted to the top, ready to fire a ceaseless barrage of high calibre shells."

    "The hull is covered with details; cables, connectors and ammo feeds for the various weapons (along with the punisher rotary cannon you’ll find 2 lascannon and 3 heavy bolters, one of which is front-mounted), and the tiniest viewing window imaginable. Exclusive to this variant are the special turret head, the rotary cannon itself and a sensor array.

    This resin kit comes as 54 components, and rules for using it in games of The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download."

  3. Preview of the SoS Kharon Pattern Acquisitor.

    "Aquiline motifs like the winged tailfin and the beak-like front of the vehicle tie the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor to the rest of the Talons of the Emperor, but it has a distinctively brutal silhouette, complemented by the iron-maiden style hatches on the sides of the vehicle. These are not for the Sisters of Silence but for their unfortunate psychic quarry; the Sisters themselves disembark from the irising hatch at the skimmer’s fore, embellished with the icon of their shadowed order."

    [​IMG]

    "In-game, the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor is a versatile and powerful transport for Horus Heresy armies, either laying down a hail of fire with its weapons (you can see these at the front of the vehicle) or disrupting incoming fire with an array of cloaking technology (like the sensor pod running along the vehicle’s spine). Sisters of Silence units equipped with short ranged weaponry (like the flamer-wielding Witchseekers) or power weapons (like the Vigilators) are going to be harder than ever to escape when attacking out of one of these."

    "Built to approach its targets silently and with utmost stealth, the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor is deliberately made to be a thing of mystery and terror when its presence is unveiled. Used primarily in a paramilitary role by the Sisters of Silence, it can suppress civilian resistance with lethal effect, its hellion cannon cutting through rampaging mobs and destroying makeshift barricades. Against greater threats, various payloads of missiles can be deployed, including sophisticated antipsyker warheads."

    [​IMG]

    "This multi-part resin kit contains the parts needed to assemble a Kharon Pattern Acquisitor, a Dedicated Transport for a Talons of the Emperor army list. It’s an interestingly shaped craft, with an almost organic-looking hull dotted all over with the vents and exhausts needed to allow its stealthy movement on the battlefield. There are two options for the access hatch – closed, with thick armour covering it, or open, with the iris door clearly visible, ready to disgorge the warriors inside. The hull contains holes for inserting 2 8mm magnets (not included) to allow you to switch between the closed and open access hatch assemblies on the fly – of course, if you strongly prefer one, you can always glue it in place. As well as these details, the Acquisitor is armed with 2 missile launchers and 2 hellion cannon, one of each placed on either side of the hull."

    "This kit comes as 19 resin components, and is supplied with a 170 x 105mm oval base and a clear flying stem. Rules for the Sisters of Silence Kharon Pattern Acquisitor are available in The Horus Heresy Book Seven - Inferno."
