Today the KV128 Stormsurge ballistic suit graces the shelves of stores around the world, a mobile bastion festooned with guns and missile pods that can tear the heart out of an enemy army in a single salvo.
This week's pre-order, however, is far more subtle, a silent killer striking from the shadows. You think you're safe, hiding in your bunker. You're wrong. Very wrong, because waiting outside is the XV95 Ghostkeel and even a ferrocrete bastion offers little protection from its guns.
The XV95 Ghostkeel is the pinnacle of Tau stealth technology, a development of the stealth battlesuit design, but far larger, and with a devastating arsenal of weapons and wargear at its disposal, including the electrowarfare suite it uses to avoid detection and the fusion collider with which it obliterates its foes. In its shadow hover two MV5 Stealth Drones that project a stealth field over the huge battlesuit, making it virtually invisible, even when standing in the open. You can find out more about this great new kit in White Dwarf 89, out now, and we'll be taking a closer look at it here next week.
Also out this week is a new edition of the Horus Heresy graphic novel Macragge's Honour, in which the Ultramarines seek vengeance for the Word Bearers' attack on Calth. If you're a fan of the Horus Heresy, you'll definitely want to get your hands on this book.
