GW: The Horus Heresy Mark VI Space Marines Preview
Für die kommende Edition von The Horus Heresy, zeigen Games Workshop einen Ausblick auf die neuen Kunstoffmodelle für Space Marines mit Mark VI Corvus Rüstungen.
Heresy Thursday – Introducing the All-Plastic Legion Tactical Squad
The secret’s out – there’s a new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy on its way later this year. The new edition features a smorgasbord of incredible new plastic models, so we’ll be dedicating every Thursday in April to some fantastic new models. And there’s no better place to start than with the very latest in cutting-edge power armour technology* – the Mark VI Corvus Armour, a.k.a “the beakie”.
There they are, in all their archaic – and all-plastic – glory.
This is an incredibly versatile kit, with plenty of options for posing and gear. This is a Legion Tactical Squad, so it’s (old-style) bolters and bayonets for everyone, though the Sergeant gets a plasma pistol and a choice of power sword, power fist, or lightning claw.
The Tactical Squad has more than weapons to play with – the kit also includes optional wargear such as a Legion vexilla (the fancy back banner you spotted in the trailer), a nuncio-vox (for keeping in touch with command), and an augury scanner (to help intercept sneakier foes), as well as packs of meltabombs, frag grenades, and krak grenades.
Long-time Warhammer fans will notice echoes of the original plastic Space Marine kit, the legendary RTB01 box. Released in 1987, that set was similarly full of posable Mark VI Corvus Armour. The Legionaries in the new kit are larger, more imposing, and less bow-legged, but they have that same versatility – and the same option to strap a great big chainblade to the barrel of their gun for an extra dose of marine-on-marine ultraviolence.
The shoulder pads sport those iconic bonding studs, and there’s a range of helmeted and unhelmeted options – with a nifty transverse crest for the Sergeant.
There’s so much more to come from the Horus Heresy in April – we’ll be revealing a new plastic model from the new edition each week on Thursday.
* Circa 10,000 years ago… Or should that be 28,000 years in the future?
