Looks like it is confirmed, Forge World like GW proper has decided not to do anything official for gaming in the age of the Great Crusade or Horus Heresy.
This week our preview sure does look to be a Mk III Crusade armor helmet. The detail is amazing!
Quoted from the latest newsletter:
Last week’s MkV ‘Heresy’ pattern power armour helmet has clearly piqued many peoples’ interest. We have been inundated with e-mails and telephone calls, all seeking more details about this Top Secret project – it’s still under lock and key, but our agents have managed to obtain another exclusive work-in-progress glimpse of some of the many forthcoming Space Marine releases that our talented Studio team are working on. Many boffins died to bring us this information, but despite their sacrifice all we can say for now is that it is well and truly set in the 41st Millenium…
Even though the release will be set in the current timeline it sure does seem t be a great way for Forge World to cash in on the Horus Heresy gaming craze. This is a win for everyone involved.
I must admit that I am very excited.
