New Sokar Pattern Stormbird from ForgeWorld

October 2nd, 2016

ForgeWorld have opened up preorders for the massive (and pricey) Sokar pattern Stormbird on their webstore for your Horus Heresy 30k Marines.

The Sokar Pattern Stormbird is a dedicated attack lander. It has served as a high-durability orbital assault craft, a mobile bastion and firebase which could land a Space Marine strike force and withstand heavy ground fire while its cargo or troops and war machines disembarked to press the attack. One of the later patterns developed, the Sokar was the design precursor to the smaller Thunderhawk Gunship.

The Stormbird’s standard armament is four turret-mounted twin linked lascannon, three twin-linked heavy bolters, and a complement of six dreadstrike missiles. It is also equipped with particularly dense composite armour plating, and is further protected by a series of void shield generators which it can extend to protect disembarking troops and war machines.

Its cavernous transport bays can hold 50 fully armed Space Marines. Alternatively it can carry up to 5 Dreadnoughts, including the mighty Leviathan; Jump-pack equipped infantry; Rapier batteries; bikes; jetbikes; a Rhino armoured transport; or a mixed force of all of the above.

The Sokar pattern Stormbird is the largest Imperial aircraft we have produced. Weighing 6 kg and measuring over half a meter from nose to tail, it’s so large, a Deimos pattern Rhino can be loaded inside it and disembark by the rear hatch. Its interior includes extensively detailed transport bays and cockpit, and six Space Marine crew: two pilots and four turret gunners. Optional quad heavy bolters and twin-linked lascannon to be mounted on Stormbird’s four ball-turrets are included.

Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List. Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the rules tab on this page.

This huge, multi-part resin kit builds one complete Sokar pattern Stormbird.

One Page Rules releases Superheavies and Fliers for 1p40K

1p40k

August 3rd, 2016

After almost 2 years of requests, One Page Rules finally released one of the most important updates for 1p40k. With this release they are not only introducing Superheavy and Flyer units, but also rules for truly massive games which are still fast and fun!

This release consists of 3 parts:

Apocalypse Rules – These rules were designed with large games in mind, think 3000pts and more. They streamline all aspects of the game to make unit activation quicker, which keeps such huge games manageable. If you really like them you can also use them for much smaller games of course, which will speed them up even more.

Superheavies – Not only are we releasing Superheavy units for some of our existing factions, but we are also releasing a new faction with the Imperial Knights. Due to the nature of these units they can be quite unbalanced, so we recommend telling your opponent before the game that you are bringing a Superheavy so that he can prepare.

Flyers – Zooming in from the skies flyers add an interesting twist to 1p40k. We tried to keep the rules familiar whilst making them balanced, so adding flyers should work well at any game size.
