GW: Khorne Berzerkers und World Eaters Preview
Die alterhwürdigen Khorne Berserker erhalten ihre wohlverdiente Neuauflage und für die Horus Heresy wurde ein weitere Upgrade-Sets angekündigt, dieses Mal für die Legion der World Eaters.
Khorne Day – After Decades of Service the Khorne Berzerkers Earn Bulked-up BlessingsIt’s been a truly bracing Khorne Day. We’ve seen a realm-murdering Gorechosen, rules for hordes of blood-slicked daemons, and downright hungry-looking XII Legion shoulders. Mountains of skulls tower towards the sky, blood sloshing down from their lofty peaks – and out of the rising carnage steps forth a solitary figure clad in crimson and brass.
The mighty chains that once held Angron back were no match for his unfettered rage. In his wake follow the Khorne Berzerkers, brutal footsoldiers grasping roaring chainblades caked with viscera.
The current Khorne Berzerkers are one of the longest-serving plastic kits of the 41st Millennium – a genuine classic that has spent two decades out on the battlefield, earning them a nice retirement in Khorne’s Domain on the soothing banks of the Rivers of Blood.*
The Khorne Berzerker is dead. Long live the Khorne Berzerker, in an all-new and very skull-y plastic kit. These fierce line-breakers will now look even better as they crash headlong into the enemy’s front line in a maelstrom of violence.
Codex: World Eaters is on its way, albeit a little while off yet, and the Lord of Skulls has plenty more in store for these ensanguined warriors.
* We’ll be sad to wave Wally the World Eater goodbye.
Khorne Day – Kill, Maim, Burn, and Accessorise With World Eaters Upgrades for the Horus HeresyIt might be Khorne Day (blood, skulls, brass, etc) but there was a time when the World Eaters weren’t quite so red or angry. Before they were swayed to the merits of cranial augmentation and an all-crimson palette, the Twelfth Legion had a rather fetching livery of blue, white, and gold.
Of course, they were still called the World Eaters, and their logo was nevertheless a fanged maw consuming a planet*, but during the Great Crusade and the earlier years of the Horus Heresy, the XII saw red more as a daring accent rather than the be-all and end-all of battlewear. They did, however, sport some truly iconic helmet crests, and you can now outfit your fledgling band of murderous maniacs with the appropriate headgear.
This set of 11 resin heads from Forge World contains five unique designs which will fit the new plastic Mark VI Tactical Squads. There are three sets of three crested helms for the rank-and-file, plus one slightly more ostentatious one for a squad leader, and a leering bare head replete with Butcher’s Nails.
These helmets will pair delightfully with a set of 10 resin shoulder pads which are also forthcoming for the World Eaters from Forge World.
There are five designs in total – you get two of each – all embossed with slightly more subtle Legion iconography than you’ll see on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium.
*No one has ever accused the World Eaters of being a subtle Legion.
