Forgeworld MkIII ‘Iron’ Armour Set

Forgeworld have released a sneak peak of a new armour set for Space Marines that will have a huge impact on the pre-heresy modelling scene...

The first of our new Space Marine armour sets is this fantastic
MkIII Armour Set sculpted by Will Hayes. The full resin kit provides enough parts to build 5 Space Marines in MkIII ‘Iron’ Armour, including two different sets of legs, shoulder pads, arms, torsos and helmets. You can see these here, along with a gallery of photos showing examples of how these brilliant parts can be combined with plastic Space Marine kits.

The MkIII ‘Iron’ Armour is a variant of the previous ‘Crusade’ pattern adapted with additional armour plates to the front, as well as a reinforced helmet faceplate and strengthened vambraces for the savage firefights of fleet-based boarding actions. This extra armour turns an already resilient Marine into an almost unstoppable juggernaut within the cramped confines of a ship. This detailed kit can be pre-ordered for despatch in the week commencing August 23rd.


  1. Screw the armour, the guns are boss!

  2. You need the whole effect though, guns and armour. Now Marine players can own full resin armies, IG are no longer special. :(
