New From Forgeworld

Forgeworld has released their next ‘Second Edition’ Imperial Armour book:  Imperial Armour Volume Three Second Edition – The Taros Campaign.

 

While the naming convention and release order may lend itself to a bit of confusion, there is none when it comes to the reason behind this book being the second one to get the v6 treatment to produce a Second Edition.  The main force featured in the book is the Tau.  With their recent codex release and massive popularity, it makes great sense to have the complete Tau range of models available with updated rules for sixth edition.  In addtion, this book also has a new Elysian Drop Troops army list, and rules for fielding Tallaran Desert Raiders using Codex: Imperial Guard.  The Imperial guard dovetail well with the recently released Imperial Armour Volume One Second Edition – Imperial Guard.

Seeing these Imperial Armour books being updated for sixth edition is an important factor in getting more players using these great models in their games of 40K, and will undoubtedly help bring these units more into the mainstream and the greater tournament scene.  Note that units from this book will be allowed for the upcoming Astronomi-con tournaments in Toronto and Vancouver.

It would stand to reason that the other Imperial Armour Volumes will receive similar treatment as 40k codices are released.  However, with the upcoming Eldar codex, should we expect a Second Edition for Imperial Armour Eleven – The Doom of Mymeara?

Here’s a fantastic transcript, detailing the origin of Games Workshop’s Space Marines.

It is a court transcript from the onoing legal case between Chapterhouse and Games Workshop.

Follow the link for Bob Naismith’s deposition. Thanks to Andy Chambers for this link.

Bob Naismith had a hand in designing the very first metal and plastic Space Marines such as RBT01 and RT01.  He also designed many of the original Rogue Trader miniatures such as the Adventurers series.
