Forge World: The Dwarves March to War
Dain Ironfoot: Lord of the Iron Hills
Dain Ironfoot is the cousin to Thorin Oakenshield™ and the lord of the Dwarven stronghold in the Iron Hills. A stubborn and hotheaded warlord, Dain is quick to anger even at the cost of wisdom. Yet what Dain lacks in tact, he more than makes up for with his martial prowess. There are few who can stand against this mighty Dwarven lord and those who try will often be felled by a vicious swing of his massive hammer.
In the Strategy Battle Game, Dain Ironfoot is both a fearsome warrior and an excellent leader, ideal for commanding your ranks of Iron Hills Dwarves in battle. This kit comes with two versions of Dain, one mounted upon his iconic war boar and one on foot incase he should become dismounted during the game. Dain is one of the best fighters available to the forces of Good. Incredibly tough and strong, he can effortlessly wield his great two-handed hammer, crushing the skulls of his enemies with terrifying ease. Upon his war boar Dain is capable of smashing through ranks of enemies, leaving untold devastation in his wake. Even on foot Dain is a formidable opponent, using his own thick skull as a weapon should the need arise. Powerful though he is, perhaps his greatest strength is the courage he inspires in his army. The sight of this mighty Dwarven lord upon the battlefield drives his followers onwards to deeds of great valour, braving any threat they find themselves facing.
This highly detailed, multi-part resin kit makes two models: Dain Ironfoot on foot and Dain Ironfoot mounted on his War Boar. Each model wears heavy Dwarf armour and wields a two-handed hammer. A 40mm round base and a 25mm round base are included.
Iron Hills Dwarf Warriors
Unlike the other Dwarf holds of Middle-earth™, those of the Iron Hills are not renowned for their great wealth or their skill in the forging of weapons and armour. Instead, the Iron Hills are famed for the fearsome warriors that make up their armies. The warriors of the Iron Hills are amongst the greatest fighters of the Third Age, both incredibly tough and well-disciplined. Expertly trained in the art of warfare, the Dwarves of the Iron Hills will adopt the tactic of forming a shieldwall in the path of their enemies, a bristling bulwark that is almost impossible to penetrate.
Iron Hills Dwarves are the main warriors for both an Iron Hills and an Erebor Reclaimed force. This kit comes with 12 Iron Hills Dwarf Warriors, each armed with a spear and a shield and presented in a unique pose. The armies of the Iron Hills are the most formidable fighting force of their time and this is reflected in-game. The Iron Hills Dwarves are not only stronger than their kin from other strongholds, but are also clad in thick plated armour and carry large shields, making them incredibly tough in combat. They can also form a Shieldwall with other Iron Hills Dwarves nearby, locking together their shields to further increase their durability, making their lines all but impenetrable.
This highly detailed, multi-part resin kit makes twelve Iron Hills Dwarf Warriors, each armed with a spear and shield. Twelve 25mm round bases are included. If you’re curious about how amazing this Dawrves are in-game, you can head here to have a look at their rules.
Iron Hills Ballista
The ballistae brought by Dain to the Battle of the Five Armies are an ingenious military invention that serves two purposes on the battlefield. Attached to the huge wooden bolts fired by the ballistae are a series of chains that upon being unleashed will spin about the bolt in a vicious fashion, slicing their foe’s arrows to kindling before careening into their ranks, sending both enemy and earth flying in all directions. Not only do these ballistae cause massive destruction, they also provide Dain’s armies with the protection they require to reach their enemy’s ranks unscathed.
An Iron Hills Ballista provides an Iron Hills force with some welcome long-range firepower. Upon the battlefield the Ballista will shoot first every turn, ensuring that it can cause maximum amounts of devastation on an enemy ranks before they get the chance to respond. Also, any return fire that crosses the path of an Iron Hills Ballista’s shot will be immediately ripped from the sky and destroyed, allowing the Iron Hills Warriors below to march unimpeded into battle.
This highly detailed, multi-part resin kit makes one Iron Hills Ballista and four Dwarf crew. Four 25mm round bases are included.
There are some pretty exciting new releases for any fans of The Hobbit here in Warhammer World this week. They’re in our cabinets here at Warhammer World right now, so if you’re intrigued, come down to see for yourself. Just to keep you all on your toes, they’re happily residing in the Citadel Store, basking in our glorious The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings section.
If The Hobbit isn’t quite your thing, don’t worry, we have some other pretty amazing new releases on offer here in Forge World.
Mechanicum Vultarax Stratos-Automata
The Vultarax was the most common Stratos-automata in widespread use by the Mechanicum Taghmata at the outbreak of the wars of the Horus Heresy. A robust, multi-role war engine, heavily armed and fitted with sophisticated sensory gear and able to operate in diverse and hostile environments, it proved itself a keystone of Mechanicum Explorator Expedition forces both as an armed, high mobility scout and as a hunter-killer and rapid response unit in open battle.
The Vultarax Stratos-automata is Flying Monstrous Creature armed with a Vultarax arc blaster, a versatile weapon capable of burning out the cogitators and engines of enemy vehicles, and two Setheno pattern havoc launchers, long ranged missile systems designed to wipe out infantry units, even in heavy cover. These armaments alongside it’s impressive armour, flare shield and enhanced targeting array, make the Vultarax Stratos-automata a formidable force on the battlefield.
Rules for using the Vultarax Stratos-automata in Horus Heresy games can be downloaded from here if you want to investigate. It can be taken in units of one to three automata as a Fast Attack choice for a Mechanicum Taghmata army. That sounds pretty fun to us. Just don’t let that kind of firepower go to your head. We’re not taking responsibility for that.
This is a complete, multi-part resin kit. A large flying stem and 100mm round base are included.
Imperial Armour – The Anphelion Project
When Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Solomon Lok receives orders to investigate the loss of astropathic communications from a moon in the Anphelion system, he begins a journey into darkness, horror and treachery. Supported by Space Marines of the Red Scorpions Chapter, Elysian Drop Troops of special detachment D-99 and Cadian Guardsmen of the 266th Regiment, Lok is soon fighting for his life amidst the fog-enshrouded eerie landscape.
Imperial Armour – The Anphelion Project is a 164 page, full colour softback book that contains rules and unit profiles for the entire range of Forge World’s Tyranid models, allowing you to use them in games of Warhammer 40,000. The book also features extensive background information on the gruesome array of monstrosities spawned by the Hive Mind in its war to consume the Imperium, making it an essential resource for players seeking to unleash the true horror of the Tyranid menace upon their foes.
Also included is a full record of the Anphelion incident, from Inquisitor Lok’s discovery of the true nature of the research being carried out on Beta Anphelion IV, to the actions of his treacherous allies conspiring to bring about his untimely end. Alongside this is a campaign which allows players to make their own attempt to survive the dangers found within the Inquisitorial research facility, as well as a full army list for the special Inquisitorial detachment D-99 and additional rules for the Red Scorpions Chapter, enabling players to field these veteran warriors in the defence of Beta Anphelion IV. Now that it’s available in soft back, you won’t even need your servitor to carry it for you. Sorry.
And last, but of course not least;
The Horus Heresy Legion Dice – Iron Warriors and World Eaters
We’ve already had some stunning Legion Dice sets here in Forge World (for Alpha Legion, Death Guard, Emperor’s Children and Sons of Horus, just to refresh your memories) and now Iron Warriors and World Eaters are here too. Both sets contain 16 of appropriately coloured Legion Dice, all 16mm, with embossed Legion details in the place of the 6, just so your opponents don’t miss how much trouble they’re in. We almost have a full set of Traitor Legion dice available so just be careful. We can’t make any promises about their heretical potential.
If you’re a Black Library fan, don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out on any of the excitement. As well as still having copies of the special edition Leman Russ novel (although not many, so if you’re interested we suggest a visit here to Warhammer World), we’ve also got some great new releases if soft back books happen to be your thing.
The Silent War softback
The mysterious Malcador the Sigillite and his secretive minions take centre stage in a collection of short stories – plus one novella – that expand the Horus Heresy into the darkness with thrilling tales of subterfuge and treachery, many of them in print for the first time and now available in large print soft back edition.
Sons of Corax softback
It gets into the heads of the Raven Guard like never before – and contrasts their sneaky, shadow-shrouded tactics with the bull-headed Brazen Minotaurs, especially in the novella ‘The Unkindness of Ravens’, where both Chapters need to do their thing if they’re going to break open a Chaos fortress and annihilate the gooey centre (literally: it’s full of Nurgle worshippers and they tend to ooze…). It was available as a hardback and now you can get your hands on the soft back version too.
The Realmgate Wars: Hammers of Sigmar
If you’ve delved into the first Age of Sigmar novel series then we have some good news. Book 3, Hammers of Sigmar has now been released in soft back. It’s in this book that The Celestant-Prime makes his first appearance in Black LIbrary’s Warhammer Age of Sigmar fiction! And as the God-King’s champion battles his foes for the first time, he tries to make sense of who he is, what his purpose is and why he’s worthy of wielding the might of Ghal Maraz.
But that’s not all…
If you missed out on the spectacular special edition of this glorious novella then it’s time to wipe those tears (it’s okay, we understand) and delve into the story now that we have it in a beautiful hardback edition. We finally find out what Russ did next… This novella bridges the gap between ‘Scars’ and ‘Vengeful Spirit’ and sees Russ make some hard decisions in the name of victory. And there’s a very unexpected guest appearance that might just change the way you look at a Legion.
This weekend is also the Wahammer 40,000 open days! Cheers of joy all round! If you’ve got yourself a ticket then we’ll see you for some unmissable fun and if not, don’t panic, tickets are still available on the day at the door. So that’s all from us for now. Have a great week of hobby and hopefully we’ll see you soon!
