Secutarii in 8th Edition- Forge World Responds

BigJon recently got in touch with Forge World about the Secutarii rules and their status in 8th Edition since many have noticed that they aren't in Imperial Armour- Index: Forces of the Astra Militarum.  Here was the response he received:

"Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the email, As far as we are aware the Mechanicum Sekutarii and the Ordinatus that all had a warhammer 40,000 stat sheet will have a new data sheet in the forth coming Forge world campaign book Fires of Cryxis.

We are requesting that the rules team release these data sheets ahead of the book release as it would be great for all of those that own these units to start using them as soon as possible.

Whilst we wait for our rules team to get back to us regarding this we would ask that you bare with us as it may be a few weeks before we hear anything further.

Until the New campaign has been announce and released we are not sure what other Mechanicum units will make the leap from the 30k universe to the 40k universe though we eager and exited to find out.

Please keep an eye on our community forum updates and Facebook posts for all of the latest and official announcements regarding rules and products.

Thanks again"

Is this welcome news, Princeps? Or is it heartbreak in the process?  Let us know in the comments section what you think.


  1. It is welcome, wallet breaking news. I have all of these units and I have been chomping at the bit for Fires of Cyraxus but I have a feeling it is going to hurt my pocketbook. Especially as I have started a second army finally (Death Guard, with a big emphasis on converting and making each model unique) I may as well just let geedubs garnish my wages directly.

    1. Personally, I'd love to know why the current Secutarii weren't included in the current index that covers the very Titans they are meant to protect. I'm pleased we are getting rules for them, but I'll admit it feels like this was shoehorning Fires of Cyraxus to the Titan owners so they can get Titan Guard back, that or they may be looking into expanding the Secutarii range. Either way, I'm at least glad we're getting Secutarii rules back.
