Scyllax AutomataForge World’s previous teaser in White Dwarf about new Mechanicum models has apparently come true! They released the Scyllax Guardian-Automata Covenant for pre-order over the weekend. You can order them now and they will dispatch for shipping on Friday, March 27th.

They have posted the rules for them on their site. I’ll be doing a write-up on those rules later today or tomorrow morning, so stay tuned.

Here’s Forge World’s official blurb…

Deployed onto the battlefield as elite shock troops or the bodyguards of their magos overseers, Mechanicum Scyllax Guardian-automata have been adapted with a wide variety of mechadendrites and servo-arms for dissecting living matter with murderous speed. With an armoured carapace as durable as Legiones Astartes battle plate and powered by a rad furnace which can vent debilitating radiation at will, the Scyllax Guardian-automata are a force to be truly feared on the battlefield.

The Mechanicum Scyllax Guardian-automata Covenant consists of four Scyllax Guardian-automata, each armed with a Scyllax bolter and various interchangeable claws and mechadendrites forming a mechadendrite combat array. Scyllax Guardian-automata Covenants can be taken in Mechanicum armies in Horus Heresy games and experimental rules for this unit are available to download here.

Let’s take a peek at these great models!

Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors

mechanicus_broWe have news that the Adeptus Mechanicus are coming in soon. There’s speculation that they will be brought into the 40K universe as well as expanding on the opportunities they already have in 30K. The models that Forge World has released are stunning already, it will be nice to see them expanded into a plastic line.

This was found due to a teaser image I’ve copied in below. You can see that there’s some binary at the top of the new White Dwarf cover. We can use the programming language perl to decode it into ASCII text. Here’s what I ran through the terminal on MI40Ks servers to decode what that binary text says.

mi40k # echo “01000001 01101100 01101100 00100000 01101000 01100001 01101001 01101100 00100000 01001101 01100001 01110010 01110011 00100001″ | perl -lape ‘$_=pack”(B8)*”,@F’
All hail Mars!

So, everyone seems to think that means there’s going to be a wave of Mechanicus coming. Let us know in the comments what you think and if you’re excited for the new models!


New Forge World Solar Auxilia Models

bobcatForge World has released a new round of Solar Auxilia models. They are available for pre-order, and will be shipped out at the end of this week on March 20th.

Forge World’s quality is always unrivaled. There is some thin bits on the Ogryn I’d be worried about snapping, but for the most part these look pretty good. I also think the Rapier looks how I would design a gun car if I only had a Bobcat front-end loader and a minigun.

The rules for these models can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.

Without further ado, here’s the models and Forge World’s official write up.

Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Multi-Laser

The Rapier weapons platform is used extensively by the Solar Auxilia. Its hard-wearing armoured track system and high load capacity make it ideal for carrying powerful weapons that are too heavy for an auxiliary to carry into battle.The quad multi-laser tears through enemy infantry formations in rapid firing bursts, the terrifying sound of which has heralded the advance, and victory, of the Solar Auxilia for generations.

The Solar Auxilia Rapier Quad Multi-Laser can be taken as part of an Auxilia Rapier Battery in Solar Auxilia armies in Horus Heresy games. Rules for this unit can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Four – Conquest.
