More FW Heresy Goodness

Coming on the back of the Outrider Squad that FW released last weekend, there are three new releases for "Betrayal".

MK III Breacher Siege Squad

"The Legion MkIII Breacher Siege Squad is one such unit; clad in augmented power armour based on the Iron pattern and bearing great ablative shields. These squads act as a vanguard in such lethal missions, and are often additionally equipped with powerful breaching charges and lascutters or melta weapons, to destroy strongpoints and forge a path for the force’s main strength to follow."

 MK IV Recon Squad

"Equipped with a variety of specialised wargear including long-range sniper weapons, stealth gear and augmented sensor-auspex devices, the Legion Recon Squad function as scouts, gathering intelligence and mapping enemy movements and strengths."

Mechanicum Thallax Cohort

"The Thallaxii are heavily augmented cyborg shock-troops used by the Mechanicum Ordo Reductor, and they differ from the Skitarii regiments both in purpose and the unique degree of their augmetics. The Lorica Thallax, from which their name derives, was developed from power armour technology, and requires a robust human specimen to enable it to function to its maximum potential. Once integrated, it encloses its bearer’s major organs, nervous system and cerebrum, but entirely replaces their skeletal structure and limbs with armoured bionics powered by an internal reactor core."

So there are lots of opportunities for our "Tale of X Gamers - Heresy Edition" participants to customise their army into something truly unique.

From a Death Guard Legion viewpoint I don't believe that we will bother with such whimsies as a Recon Squad or a Breacher Siege Squad. However there may be an opportunity to include a Mechanicum Cohort at some point.


  1. I will be adding Recon squads to my Raven Guard

  2. Would have thought Breacher squads were right up the Death Guard's alley (so to speak)?

    1. Boarding actions is more the forte of lesser legions. Hostile environs is Death Guard forte
