Forge World Newsflash - Legion Falchion and Realm of Battle Boards

I'm not a massive fan of the 'Realm of Battle' boards but that tank is very nice indeed...

The Falchion uses a potent weapon which combines technologies fielded in the Fellblade and the Shadowsword super-heavy tank. The Falchion’s twin-mounted Volcano cannon is one of the most powerful vehicle-mounted, anti-tank weapons in the Imperium’s arsenal and it requires such an investment in resources to construct just a single example that its use is limited to the Legiones Astartes. Even then, the Falchion is so rare that most Legions maintain but a handful, reserved for use against the largest of enemy war machines.

The Falchion was developed long before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and as such its prey was not the enemy Titans it would later see such extensive combat against. As the Great Crusade expanded ever outward, the Expeditionary fleets encountered a staggering array of foes, some of whom were of a truly gargantuan scale, but all were set to ravening flame by the touch of the Falchion’s Volcano cannon.
The rules for the Falchion, as well as many other exciting new models, can be found in the forthcoming book The Horus Heresy Book Three: Extermination.
A limited quantity of this multi-part resin kit, designed by Phil Stutcinskas, will be available to purchase at the Forge World Open Day. The Legion Falchion Super-heavy Tank Destroyer will go on general release in the next few weeks.

In a galaxy where conflict is commonplace, Imperial architecture is often by necessity fortified against possible attack. Should the Alien, the Traitor or the Heretic attempt to assault an Imperial world, more often than not it is the great cities of humanity that become battlegrounds. Large industrial facilities are transformed into key objectives, with generatorum nexus' becoming vital sources of power and manufactorum sectors providing much-needed supplies or raw materials.
Forge World scenery designer Blake Spence has created two new modular Realm of Battle Cityscape tiles. Each is light weight and durable thanks to the hollow resin method we use, and each tile measures 2' x 2' (610 mm x 610 mm).

A limited quantity of both the Realm of Battle Generatorum Nexus tile and the Realm of Battle Manufactorum Sector tile will be available to purchase at the Forge World Open Day this Sunday. Both tiles will go on general release in the next few weeks.

Forge World writer Alan Bligh talks about what you can expect to find in the latest book from our Horus Heresy series.


  1. It's Echo Base!!! Really like the battle boards a lot.

    1. Personally I've never been a fan of the Realm of Battle boards so their add-ons from Forge World haven't been something I've ever considered. Cost is also an issue, lol.
