FW 300 - Tartaros Pattern Terminator Squad

Postby Spack » Thu Mar 29, 2012 9:01 pm

Hi there,
With the Forge World Open Day only a few days away, we can now reveal details of a brand new Space Marine release that will be available to buy at the event; the Tartaros Pattern Terminator Squad. This detailed, multi-part resin kit is available to pre-order now and will be on sale in limited numbers at the Forge World Open Day on Sunday 1st April – and that’s no joke!

Tartaros Pattern Terminator Squad
Tactical Dreadnought Armour, or Terminator Armour as it is more usually known, is the most resilient form of personal protection available to the Adeptus Astartes. Originally developed during the closing years of the Great Crusade, and adapted from the heaviest of industrial gear, several types and patterns were developed concurrently.

Of these, the Indomitus pattern is perhaps the most widespread, due to its template being held on key Forge Worlds such as Mars, although Tartaros Pattern Terminator armour is also issued to the Veterans of a Chapter’s 1st Company.

Perhaps the most advanced form of Tactical Dreadnought Armour, the Tartaros pattern shares many systems with the MkIV ‘Maximus’ pattern of power armour, and provides greater mobility for its wearer than the Indomitus pattern with no loss in durability or protection.

The Tartaros Pattern Terminators set, designed by Will Hayes, is a full resin kit that comprises five Terminators, armed with power fists, a power sword, storm bolters, a heavy flamer and enough optional attachments to arm four Space Marines with chainfists. This detailed squad will be available to purchase in limited numbers at the Forge World Open Day on Sunday 1st April, and is also available to pre-order now for despatch from 10th April.

Are they not just a continuation of the chucky egg design mentality?
That said they do look pretty bad ass, more dizzy than chucky. Dizzy kicked more butt.
Barely even lurking..

Haha, I remember Dizzy.. My first thought was they look like mini Conteptors. But yes they still look kick ass.

that was my thought too, about mini contemptors

if this is the way forge is going with designs, then i might just rethink my stance on no more kits from them for shoddy quality

hell it could make a pretty sweet first company strike team, two contemptors with two squads of those guys :D


oh i think my wallet just cried out in pain...

not to mention my hand fearing more scars :P

Another thought struck me today.. painful I know...

Anyone who uses Termy legs for 'True Scale' will like them because they don't need to fill in / build up the legs.
