That sure does look like Mk V Heresy Armor! The picture was sent out in the latest Forge World Newsletter.
I noticed this interesting little thing it the name of the photo: mkVnl which might translate into Mk V Night Lord. Could there be an Imperial Armor series based on the Horus Heresy on the horizon? Oh my, I surely do hope that’s the case!
Here is the text that goes with the picture.
As you may have heard from our Studio design team at the Forge World Open Day back in March, or read in the Games Day UK Preview, our designers, graphic illustrators and writer Alan Bligh have spent much of the past few months feverishly working on an incredibly exciting Imperial Armour project that is, as yet, still Top Secret.
Our agents have managed to obtain this exclusive work-in-progress sneak peek of one of a veritable cornucopia of forthcoming Space Marine releases. Forge World is once again turning its attention to the noble warriors of the Adeptus Astartes, the Emperors' Finest. Many boffins died to bring us this information, so keep an eye on the Forge World Newsletter over the coming weeks for more details of this thrilling project...
While this isn’t exactly Space Wolves news or rumors, it does benefit Space Wolf players. The up coming Mk V and the existing Mk IV and MkVI kits offer some really interesting conversions possibilities for the staunch and superstitious Sons of Russ.
Imagine your Wolf Guard decked out in a mix of early armor variants; this would be the perfect way to represent their venerable status with in the ranks of the Space Wolves.
Once these are released you can expect to see plenty of them in my Space Wolf army, which is already, dominated by converted Mk IV and Mk VI armored Wolves.
