Forgebane: Coming Soon

Breaking news today – a brand new battle box is on the way. We’ve heard a lot over the past year about the conflict between the Space Marines and their traitorous cousins, but in this set, we turn our gaze to another ancient evil rising throughout the galaxy.

In Forgebane, two venerable empires clash for supremacy on a forge world that was revealed to be a tomb world following the opening of the Cicatrix Maledictum. In the boxed set, you’ll find two armies, along with rules for playing them and a new chapter in the lore of Warhammer 40,000, as the Adeptus Mechanicus discover the secrets of blackstone – a mysterious material with the potential to neutralise the powers of Chaos or even amplify it to a horrific degree.

Conflicts such as these are rising across the galaxy, as more forge worlds are found to harbour ancient and terrible secrets (that’ll serve them right for building all their facilities on unusually ore-rich planets mysteriously devoid of all life…).

Whether you’re just getting started and looking for a way into the 41st Millennium, curious to start an Adeptus Mechanicus or Necrons army, or just want to pick up some new units to ally with your existing force, Forgebane is for you.

You might recognise the Knight Armiger Warglaives and Necron Cryptek with a distinctive Canoptek cloak from our preview at the Las Vegas Open. The Necron Cryptek is the first to be made of plastic and features a nifty new piece of wargear that allows them to skim above the battlefield and repair your units.

Meanwhile, Knight Armiger Warglaives are a new, lightweight class of Imperial Knight, piloted by Knights in training, lesser members of noble households or just commoners with an uncanny knack for mechanised warfare. It’s the job of these smaller Knights to range ahead of their brethren and annihilate any threats – in particular, shearing through enemy vehicles or tank-hunters with the thermal spear and reaper chain-cleaver.

These guys will fit into your Lord of War slot neatly, and make both the perfect accompaniment to an Imperial Knight you already own and a powerful option in their own right for any Imperium army. They’re ideal for filling a Super-heavy Detachment – this duo and one of our standard Imperial Knights isn’t just a powerful force on the battlefield, but also nets your army three Command Points.

Forgebane is a great place to start a Necron or Adeptus Mechanicus army (or both!), and the set will cost you less than getting everything inside separately, and that’s BEFORE you count the new Cryptek and Imperial Knight units.

Forgebane will be out soon – keep your eyes peeled on Warhammer Community for new announcements. In the meantime, make sure to follow the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page for any news.
