So what is the deal with.........

Postby swampthing » Thu Aug 08, 2013 4:14 pm

Pardon my Seinfeld but, what is the deal with forgeworld and all the Mechanicum models. They are all very cool looking,
but what would you use them for in a gaming situation.
Building a Mechanicum army and using anothers codex as a proxy has been a project that has been floating around in my head for ever. but whenever i tried to start it, Ive always been discouraged by the enormity of the task.
also theres always something else to build and paint.
Now that forgeworld is comming out with these models, could it be the first step of a possible future mech army?

They're part of their Horus Heresy/Warhammer 30,000 series. Their rules will be for that setting.

Somebody posted the details of a chat they had with Jes Goodwin at Enter the Citadel or some other GW event in July and reference was made to Jes and John Blanche working on the art and design for an upcoming army. I strongly believe it will be Adeptus Mechanicus, and in theory a slot has been opened by the loss of Black Templars. We'll see.

But I believe the next couple of FW Horus Heresy books will start detailing out the pre-Heresy AdMech forces which is why these models are trickling out.

When did we lose the Templars. When or where was this announced.

Apparently the Black Templars are the Space Marine army used in the battle report in the upcoming White Dwarf to showcase the new Space Marine Codex.

Rumor has it they'll be getting a supplemental dex like Farsight and Iyanden.
