New Empire, Monstrous Arcanum & Forgeworld Terminators!

So, pictures of the new Empire Army Book and models have 'leaked' onto the internet (don't think it really, technically, counts as a leak if the leak is just pictures from next weeks White Dwarf - I think the term everybody should be using is 'Advertising'). That aside the models i'm most impressed with?

These two sets (the Demi Gryphon Knights i can take or leave and the new Karl Franz is sweet, but the Griffons Chest plate just seems a bit off to me - if it's optional i will, of course, change my mind). To be exact the Witch Hunter (top left) and the Warrior Priest (bottom right) are the two I like the most. Also the Horse-Drawn Cart with the model of the old-world solar system is just too cool.

Aside from that, Forgeworld has a couple of new releases:

"This is the eagerly-anticipated first book in a new series from Warhammer Forge, and as its name suggests Monstrous Arcanum deals with a veritable carnival of monsters both arcane and bloodthirsty. Within this 113 page, full-colour hardback book, you will find 32 new monsters – nightmarish horrors and noble beasts, creatures of magic made flesh and the victims of terrible curses inflicted by dark powers – presented in the form of Binding Scrolls for use with any Warhammer army."

More big monsters in Warhammer is only a good thing, the Warpfire Dragon and Basilisk models alone have convinced me to order this book. Also, "first book in a new series" does that mean more books full of big nasties? I'm sold. 

And finally:

Tartaros Pattern Terminator Armour. Or, for short, Mini Contemptors. If i were in the market for new Terminators (or any terminators, for that matter) i'm be getting these. For one, they'd look great alongside the Contemptor Dreds. 

Although, they could do with a bit Chaosing up. Maybe some mould, tentacles and rotten ooze. No, stop. My bank can't take any more!
