Review: Horus Heresy Land Raider Proteus
Put on your nostalgia glasses, the plastic Land Raider Proteus kit finally arrives for us to review. Based on the proportions and design of the original plastic Land Raider from 1988, the new plastic kit offers a faithful recreation of the Forge World resin model. On top of that, you can also choose between building a Land Raider Proteus Carrier or Explorator. Find out more in this review.
Showcase: Emperor’s Children MkVI Legionary
After reading the initial four Horus Heresy novels I grew quite fond of the Emperor’s Children. I really like their characterisation, their underlying perfectionism, and their complex characters like Saul Tarvitz and Eidolon. Inspired by the novels, I decided that I want to paint a few Emperor’s Children to compliment my Sons of Horus. Here is the first test model.
Video tutorial: Speedpainting grimdark Sons of Horus

Showcase: Sons of Horus Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
One of the most popular models of the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy was without a doubt the Kratos Heavy Assault Tank. This massive behemoth of a tank closes the gap between the Sicaran Battle Tank and the Fellblade, and the kit is a real treat for any treadhead. I couldn’t imagine a better model to kick off my Sons of Horus collection, so enjoy a few pictures of my very own Kratos in this post.
Review: Horus Heresy Leviathan Dreadnought with ranged weapons
After the plastic close combat Leviathan has taken the hearts of hobbyists by storm, now comes the Leviathan Siege Dreadnought with ranged weapons. In our review, we take a look at the new ranged combat sprue and show you what options you can look forward to (and what you will, unfortunately, have to do without).
Review: Horus Heresy Sicaran Battle Tank (plastic)
Vroom vroom! The plastic Sicaran Battle Tank enters the battlefield of the Age of Darkness. This high-speed destroyer tank was designed by Ferrus Manus and Guilliman to outflank slower vehicles and has become a fan-favourite for its potent accelerator autocannon and unique design that is so different from the classic Rhino and Land Raider hull based Space Marine tanks. In this review, we’ll check if Games Workshop has managed to translate the model faithfully into plastic or if some corners had to be cut.

The Horus Heresy train has no brakes! Here is our review for yet another plastic set, this time for the ever-popular Leviathan Dreadnought in its close combat configuration with a choice of siege claws and/or drills. Let’s see what’s hidden in the box and what all the options are.
Review: Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
The Kratos is a new, never-before-seen Heavy Assault Tank from the early hours of the Horus Heresy, now available as a model for the first time, and then in all plastic too! In this review we look at all the sprue, check how well it magnetises and do a size comparison.
Review: Legiones Astartes Special & Heavy Weapons Upgrade Set
In this review, we take a look at the Legiones Astartes Special Weapons & Heavy Weapons (Missile Launchers & Heavy Bolters) upgrade sets, also available for pre-order since yesterday. Both plastic kits contain special and heavy weapons to upgrade the new MkVI Corvus armour Space Marines to Legion Support and Heavy Support Squads. But are they also compatible with the older MkIII and MkIV Legionaries? Here you will find the answer.
