Forge World Newsletter #311
Pravidelný Forge World Newsletter. Tentokrát trošku slabší, ale přece. Představuje se Necron Canoptek Acanthrites. Tešme se na další příliv resinového cracku.
In this week’s newsletter we’re excited to announce an addition to our Necron range: the sinister Canoptek Acanthrites are available to pre-order now. We’ve also got an events update for you, as we are now accepting reservation orders for both Games Day UK and Games Day Australia.
Necron Canoptek Acanthrites
Resembling monstrous, artificial insects enfolded in shadowed wings of tenebrous force that propel them through the skies, Canoptek Acanthrites are murderous Necron constructs created for a single purpose: the destruction of those who have dared to claim the worlds of the ancient Necron empire as their own.
Acanthrites‘ agile, coiling tails are tipped with hyper-phased voidblades and they are armed with high-powered thermal cutting beams, and this potent armament allows them to carve and dissemble solid matter with horrifying speed. Unsurprisingly, when these devastating weapons are turned upon frail flesh the results are terrible to behold.
Canoptek Acanthrites are often encountered in the vanguard of Necron assault spearheads and extermination campaigns, and their numbers vary from a mere handful to vast hosts of these abhorrent machine-locusts, capable of stripping a city down to rubble and slaughtering its inhabitants in a merciless tide of destruction.
The Necron Canoptek Acanthrites set, designed by Will Hayes, comprises three finely detailed multi-part resin models. Experimental rules for these rapacious constructs are available to download from our website, and this set is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 31st August.

Games Day Australia and Games Day UK Reservations Now Being Taken
Sunday 9th September is Games Day Australia, at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney, and we will be journeying down under with Mark Bedford from our studio design team.
Additionally Sunday 23rd September is Games Day UK at the NEC in Birmingham, our biggest event of the year. We’ll be bringing you more information about our presence at this amazing event in the next few weeks. Our entire studio team will be in attendance along with lavish displays of both new and work-in-progress artwork and models, as well as with several of our immense display tables.
We’ll also have a vast sales stand containing a massive selection of our range of resin kits, books and modelling supplies, including our Event Only models and maybe even a few cheeky pre-release kits in limited numbers.
We’re now taking reservation orders for both Games Day UK and Australia, and a reservation order is the best way to ensure that we will have the exact products that you want, packed and waiting for you to collect. Games Day UK and Games Day Australia reservation orders are pre-paid to make the collection process quicker and easier, leaving you with more time to enjoy the rest of the event.

We’ll need your name, a contact e-mail address and a full list of the items you wish to order, and you’ll need the card you wish to use for payment to hand as well.

GW Australia will take your name and a contact e-mail address along with the details of the kits you wish to order, as well as processing your payment there and then.
For both Games Days we will send you a confirmation e-mail listing your order number in the week before the event. This is your proof of payment, and you must bring this with you to the event to collect your reservation.
