The 3rd head is certainly better than all the AdMech knight heads released by FW so far.


That's not exactly a high bar though. The variants for the Cerastus frame do look good, especially alongside the cog patterned armour plates of the Atrapos. But the head variants for the Questoris frame, with the exception of the first two new ones are just awful. Maybe they would look a bit better with a more AdMech paint scheme, but as there shown on the FW site eww.
Still I hope this points towards FW doing more addons for the plastic kit. New weapons(ranged and close combat) and more cosmetic stuff like variant armour plates would be welcome.

Those heads are a definite improvement (apart from the last one). Not sure why Forgeworld keep making those gas mask/cylon style heads. Transfers are nice though.

Empty? No, I will be able to fill that space with my 8+ Knights for my Questoris Army. I keep holding off and doing other projects until I get my decals (now out of sheer stubbornness!).

Not that long ago and they didn't give anything concrete as per usual. In the interim since the preview though, they have released like... seven decal sheets. Two of them at least were wholly unseen before release (I believe). It is just so weird that Conquest came out so long ago and only Makabius has decals. What the eff, Forge World!

I really like the dwarfs. Imo the lotr dwarfs have always been the best on the market and that trend continues even with hobbit-designs. And though I dislike the concept, the miniatures of the goat riders look decent as well.

Something seems off about those dwarf sculpts.. the faces seem somewhat flat and featureless which isn't what I'd expect from Forgeworld resins. They look like mid-grade plastic sculpt quality ala mantic 2-3 years ago.

Flat featureless faces? They are mostly covered by beards and helmets.

They're beautiful sculpts imo, I second the earlier comment that LotR dwarves are the best there is.

Naw man, it is a FW House that they have painted their models already. The Cerastus Acheron is in those colors! Plus, it lets them sell those metallic paints too. And they did preview the stupid decals... there is just some holdup on them for some undisclosed reason. :(

I'm comparing them to previous LOTR offerings and I like the LOTR (and GW therefore) dwarven aesthetics overall. The details look shallow like someone took the 3d file for the face and flattened it 50% in the z-axis (towards the camera) giving the facial features less depth. Compare the guy in the front to Gimli for instance or the commander in another set..

Spoiler:






YMMV but the faces closer to 3d designed for mass produced plastic limitations dwarves like the pci below and not forgeworld resin sculpted ones. The rest of the model is fine but the facial sculpting is disappointing.

Possibly but it feels more like them using a sculptor who primarily works with 3d designs for injection plastic models complete with all the inherent limitations of that process instead of one more familiar with resin/metal sculpting.

Magnus is the next Primarch. The next book is meant to be Dark and Blood Angels so Sanguinius and the Lion will probably be next. Dorn and Alpharius will be done when the story gets back round to them, I think I remember reading from someone's event report. It sucks, but I think they only have the one sculptor (Egan) on Primarchs atm.

Loving the second head of the 3.
Would be nice if they decided to release a standard cerastus knight body, then had heads and arms separate.

Would allow them to expand the range a lot more and gives tons more options.

Although, it would render current knights pointless I guess.

You are correct, assuming you get no discount on GW proper. $145ish vs $157.

They use the printed price at shows, but if you order offline it does a straight conversion, based on the highest it gets in a specific time frame (I think that's the credit card company/paypal more than FW).

Correct. GW bills you in GBP, then your credit card company/paypal converts the price to your currency at whatever exchange rate they feel like using, along with whatever fees they feel like charging. Read the fine print on exactly what rate you're going to be getting and if there are any foreign transaction fees attached.

I doubt the Manta sells enough to justify a new model for it, honestly. And the new Barracuda has additional gun options, while the new Tigershark is a dual build, giving reasons for players like me with the old versions to buy the new ones besides just aesthetics.

Another reason for a possible delay could be because of GW messing around with the Admech side of things- there is a lot of new things that have Skitarii and Cult-Mech blending together, FW may have wanted to wait a bit for that to shake out before adding a ton of new AdMech to 40K. Especially if they are going to include rules to allow them to be used in formations.

I would suggest that, along with the imperial gate, the research lab etc, when they finally pull the Manta, it will be for good and if you didn't get one by then, you won't be. The sales for it must be minuscule and the molds vast and often in need of repair.

Get one sooner rather than later and upgrade it yourself.

I also doubt they'll update the manta model due to low cast on demand sell through. I'm shocked they made it in the first place frankly for a demos faction. Is it still the largest and/or heaviest model they make or did the most recent titan or stormbird surpass it?

I do hope they include ways of adding their models into existing formations as alternatives. Has forgeworld ever done that? The 2nd ed Tarps book iirc was mid 6e just prior to the decurion style detachment for everyone current phase of Gw game design. That of course assumes it's here to stay (sadly likely) for the rumored 8th ed later this year.

AFAIK the basic Tigershark was not all that popular due to weak guns and dropping basic drones, while the AX-1-0 was a lot more popular as a superheavy killer. So they merge the two into one kit and free up some space in their catalogue.

I don't like the current Manta model enough to want to drop cash on it now. I like the newer Tau flyer look they are going with and would love to see an updated next generation Manta.


AFAIK the basic Tigershark was not all that popular due to weak guns and dropping basic drones, while the AX-1-0 was a lot more popular as a superheavy killer. So they merge the two into one kit and free up some space in their catalogue.

What if they just end up discontinuing the regular Tigershark for the AX-1-0. Even with the AX-1-0 I still don't see it as that popular of a unit. I never hear Tau players talk about them all that much and certainly not the wider player base. I think the last time was how useless they were for apoc games and that was a discussion from years ago I googled.

Correct. GW bills you in GBP, then your credit card company/paypal converts the price to your currency at whatever exchange rate they feel like using, along with whatever fees they feel like charging. Read the fine print on exactly what rate you're going to be getting and if there are any foreign transaction fees attached.


I believe you'll also get hit for your local state taxes nowadays. (which is bs, since the FW web prices also include 20% VAT, which they simply pocket as you're outside the UK)

True, but this is a 30k House. 30k gets allllllllllllllllllll the love. That is probably why Bran Redmaw never got released! FW was really getting the Heresy going about then. Why release 40k stuff when GW is doing a bangup job now? So I see maybe Fires coming out and not much else for 40k for a long time. But I might just be cynical.

All that being said, if they don't release the Vyronii decals soon I am going to go insane.

Some new stuff from my rumour guy:
First some warnings
Not related Atia/vetnoob or whoever else gets hold of stuff early
Probably chan/some less desirable area of the Internet related
High sodium content

Some early rumours on what may be coming February 4th and 5th during the Horus Heresy Weekender 17.

Secutarii are a new branch of the Taghmata army list. Can never have automata in the detachement; big focus on infantry and transports.
Secutarii Psiloi, fast attack.
Secutarii Hetairoi, elite.
Secutarii Hypaspists, elite.
Secutarii Heleposis, open topped transport (20 capacity).

Cybernetica has new options.
Vidrios Caster Array, upgrade for Cybernetica HQs that allows counting as psyker.
Psy-Conduit upgrade, models gain FNP/FNP++ if a psyker is within 24"
Zetiark, female archmagos who developed with the Thousand Sons the crystalline circuits needed to control automata.

Thousand Sons
Sekhmet Terminators, elites that must pick a singular cult that radically alters their behaviour and/or statline.
Seshat Veterans, infiltrators tasked with securing artifacts and assassination from behind enemy lines.
Cataphraktos Psy-Automata, troops that a psyker within 24" must harness a WC to activate them until next turn.

Space Wolves
Hirdmen Veterans, fast attack with optional jump pack, combat shields and tons of melta/plasma weapons.
Varangian Great Guards Terminators, elites with two-handed great weapons or sword & board in the style of firedrakes.
Despoilers (Destroyers), elites with jump packs and fully equipped with smaller rad weapons.
Oh! Interesting sounds very mech to me

Nop, it's a fake rumor:
Amazing. Now that it's on faeit and B&C I can say it's me. Objective completed, sorry 4chan but you were the best way to test if the usual suspects were still slowed or not. And that dipsheit at B&C says "my source" holy sheit.

FYI I took the SW stuff from a Heresy30k thread wishlisting. In fact, I screwrf up with the Wolf Guard and someone here said Varangians, so I went with that in the "updated version". Feel free to compare.

All of the Secutarii stuff is just me looking up what a Peltast is and grabbing various fancy terms that vaguely fit. Siege towers are sweet though, but I forgot the triaros is already 20 capacity and made this one open topped. lol.

I love how some people go "hmmmmm this reminds me of what I heard elsewhere, must be true!" no +SCRAPSHUNTERRORABORT+, fw already said that one of the ts units will be psyker assassins and sw get a variant of destroyers (and I screwed up on the naming).

Just on the Cataphractii as far as I can tell. I suppose it makes sense from a development standpoint, carry the chain swords first then integrate them into the fist later.

I'm wondering about rules for the Dreadnought. The description says that it's better than a normal contemptor in a number of ways, including having heavier armor. Could this be a front armor 14 Dreadnought? Or is that simply referring to a better invulnerable save?

Also, it would have at least WS6, initiative 5, and 6 attacks.

Yeah, very tempting. It might actually be a viable walker.

In any case, they look really nice, although it is a bit weird that they're so sleek and plain while the Custodes themselves are so ornate. Makes me wonder whether they were originally designed to go together.

Too bad I don't play 30K and don't much care for Custodes. Hmm... Pallas might make a good counts-as Javelin attack speeder, perhaps?

Did FW ever publish any rules for taking their SM vehicles on Deathwatch? I think that Pallas would look amazing in DW colours...

In any case, they look really nice, although it is a bit weird that they're so sleek and plain while the Custodes themselves are so ornate. Makes me wonder whether they were originally designed to go together.

Too bad I don't play 30K and don't much care for Custodes. Hmm... Pallas might make a good counts-as Javelin attack speeder, perhaps?

Did FW ever publish any rules for taking their SM vehicles on Deathwatch? I think that Pallas would look amazing in DW colours...


Sorry Pallas is Custodes only. It's part of their "codex" after all. As for vehicles I think they did, though I'm not sure.

What are you talking about? You have your stormshields already. Just look at your specific terminators.


Granted, but I can pretty much bet you that the Vigil shields will come as a shields only pack, to enable customisation of any Terminator pattern. If I wanted the Salamanders ones, I'd have to buy a whole Firedrake set at £49, unlike the Phalanx Warder and Templar Brethren upgrade sets for IF at £22 each or the Praetorian Breacher shields for the UM at £20. See what I'm getting at. To just get the shields and hammers, I'd have to pay double the price and end up with only half the product being usable. The Firedrakes are the Legion Specific troops, but the Vigil shields are Legion specific wargear, what I was trying to get at 'Where is the Salamanders Legion specific wargear?'. Anyway, it's not that important - I'm sure FW will get around to it.

It is a fine looking model but it's the first time I've looked at a horus heresy era model and felt a bit uneasy - I've been shying away from 40k a bit recently and focusing on 30k because the aesthetics are more in keeping with what I like about the universe GW has created. But that shiny golden dreadnought with a sword and shield is drifting too much into dread knight territory. It's a little too giddy for my tastes.

It had better be overpowered! Custodes basic troops cost 55 points per model minimum, the tank we've seen so far is 195 in it's pdf and no way are these Contemptors less than 250. With that little board prescence and ability to supply massed firepower, the list needs to be really good at it's areas of strength to stand a chance.

Horde tactics with a decent quantity of anti-vehicle options is likely to hard counter a Custodes list.

In this respect the Legion often works in conjunction with the Adeptus Arbites, the Inquisition and the Ecclesiarchy. The carefully planned assaults of Grand Master Ferromort are famous for their precision, ferocity and flawless execution. Great pains are taken to use the Legion as an example of implacable and faceless Imperial efficiency.

In "persuading" particularly unruly governors to submit to Imperial will, the Legio Ordo Sinister has destroyed hundreds of supposedly impregnable fortresses and palaces.

We've done it both ways in the past, but if there's enough news it might merit its own thread! Ideally we just want to keep it organized, so if a stand alone thread is created, avoiding duplicating conversation both here and there (so we should link to it here, if we go that route, or just keep all the news here - but ideally not both!).

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/01/23/inferno-revealed/

That’s right folks, feast your eyes on the cover of The Horus Heresy: Book Seven – Inferno.

Arguably the most anticipated Forge World book since the launch of our Horus Heresy supplements, Inferno is the campaign book that chronicles the epic battle of Prospero.

This is the saga of the Space Wolves and Thousand Sons Legions – two loyal(ish) Legions set upon each other by the machinations of Chaos and the traitorous Warmaster. It is one of the greatest tragedies of the era, but for Horus Heresy fans, one of the most awesome opportunities for games!

As you’d expect, there are loads of new rules for Space Wolves and Thousand Sons armies – both of which can deviate quite considerably from the standard Space Marine Legion force. It’s not just the VI and XV Legions in the book though – also covered are the Talons of the Emperor: the Sisters of Silence and Legio Custodes. Even in an age of superhuman demi-gods, this force is elite, with access to loads of great vehicle support for their unequaled infantry.

All in – it’s looking great, it’s going to be awesome, and it’s on its way very soon.

If you’re thinking of starting a force from either Legion, or the Talons of the Emperor, then you can’t do much better than the Burning of Prospero box – and maybe a few Thousand Sons or Space Wolves shoulder pads. Oh, and one of those new golden Dreadnoughts. And Russ. And a Spartan. There you go – army finished, now you just need the book.

The chap on the bottom left of the cover?

While that could be a new model of the bolter-wielding Custodes chaps from the artwork (e.g.:

...I think it's more likely that he's simply a Space Wolf space marine. The legs look Mark III to me, and the overall silhouette looks too similar to a marine.

The mention of SolidWorks (which is much more suited to inorganic models) made me think of Adeptus Titanicus / BFG / etc. Although, they mentioned Zbrush too which is really best for organics, so maybe they're just hoping for the perfect candidate... with the right attitude, of course (I actually think working at FW is probably a blast, just funny they have to copy/paste that part)

Indeed he is LC not PA marine. Look at his neck protection and bolt gun looks fancy on zoom.

Well look at the scale of the figure compared to the custodian guard to the right of the vehicle. Plus the left shoulderpad is almost a dead giveaway, and the neck guard is near identical if not 100% identical to the plastic custodes. All FW has released up until now has been custodes vehicles/transfers/dreadnought so it's no surprise they had at least one infantry variant (a shooty one) in the making. I'm betting on them being pretty badarse when we finally see them.

My brother managed to snag me one before they removed it.

Unless this means they are making a new, easier to build one. I'm still trying to figure out how the bottom base fits to the top part of the base.

That is realy surprising TBH. Forgeworld pushs the model realy hard, since it's the only pod allowed to drop contemptor dreads everyone loves. They even listed it as being able to drop their new siege dreads. Due to their popularity, I figured that boosted the number of Lucius pods they sold.

It's almost as if it was a massively up priced dreadnought easily proxyable by just not putting the gun into a regular dread and ignoring it being a little smaller.

Just got a reply from FW

Thank you for the email. Unfortunately the dreadnought drop pods you are after are no longer in production.

Due to extensive damage to the moulds the resins team rendered the kits irreparable. whilst we look in to the situation further we have not been given any indications on a new kit being produced or if they are going to try and re sculpt the the current kit that has recently been removed from the range.

What we do know is that It is very rare that once an item has been discontinued that it will be brought back into our range at least in its previous form.

Thank you again and sorry for any inconvenience

It could be the case that the master was also damaged/destroyed. Sometimes things are temporarily unavailable with "remaking the molds" as the reason, so presumably they can make new molds if necessary. And I can't imagine they'd be stupid enough to deliberately throw out all of the masters as general policy, would they?

If anyone is interested in these, I recommend that you get them soon. The other day I found out that the WE dice are marked "no longer available." When I asked FW about them (because to my knowledge they weren't supposed to be limited), they explained that they want to get more but were having some issues with the manufacturer. I suspect they'll return eventually, but who knows when that will be. It's possible that these are from a different manufacturer, but if not...might want to move soon so you aren't in limbo like me.

Something feels off about those wolf sculpts in their proportions and poses. I can't quite put my finger on it but they just remind me of those 3rd party thunderwolf models people would order from the Philippines back when they were introduced in the Space Wolf 5th edition codex instead of the quality in sculpting that I'd expect to see from the HH FW line.

No its just RAW it says "At the Start of your turn, Discard a Warp Charge blah blah blah" which is impossible, as there is now a Psychic phase and all warp charge is discarded at the end of turn
RAI for 7th is just sacrifice a warp charge point (you roll a 4, pick up 3) for the 2++

Really not liking the wolves.
Great concept, but they don't look right and I feel that £50 of that price is for fancy bases.

The thunderwolf cavs are plastic, 3 per box and half the price.
And by the looks of it, the same size if not slightly bigger, plus the benefit of being plastic, no delivery charge etc.

Hell, for £14 less you get a custodes dreadnought.
For £10 more you get a custodes grav tank.

Pricing just seems insane on them, and that's not something I complain about atall.
I can even buy a Thanatar for my army for £5 more lol.

Will be interesting to see if it's just those 2 as a HQ choice or if you can buy more of them.
Or if it's a unique or generic HQ.
If it has something like a 2-6 unit size you could be paying a small fortune lol.



Bloodbowl looks like a convincing start though.

Are the plastic Thunderwolf models similar sized to the Wolf-Kin? They seem similar from what I can see on the websites, but I've never seen the Thunderwolves in person.

I like the Wolf-Kin but not enough to pay that much when I can use cheaper plastic for them. Plus I really am not a fan of the Thousand Sons on the bases. Doesn't make sense to me as game pieces.

Agreed. They look... chunky. Not sleek enough.

They kind of look like they started with bears, but added a wolf head and tail. I think they've tried to make them look more powerful than a typical wolf (even though they are already giant, Primarch sized wolves), so they've bulked them out, but then that has made them look less wolfy.

Wow, that Kabuki model is indeed a nice alternate take

For the FW wolves, what bothers me most is the very static-looking marines on the bases... particularly the one falling over. Hopefully those are separate bits, but even so, as someone else said it does feel like you're paying for the basing... and I think it's too "specific" of basing, as well (to see every Russ and wolf combo out there have the same marine getting slain in the exact same pose).

Still, I'm a fan of Russ, although I think I'd go for a headswap to make him look a little more hardened / tough

warboss wrote:Something feels off about those wolf sculpts in their proportions and poses. I can't quite put my finger on it...


I can. It's because they bear little relation to actual wolves in their proportions. The limbs might be thicker to look like they carry the weight of huge wolves, but if that's the case it ain't working. There are big animals with legs that don't look anywhere near as clunky - look at moose, or giraffes, or carthorses. The legs on these sculpts are just... flabby sausages, with vague lines along the thighs to say 'there are muscles here, no really' and a slight kink at the hock. There are vague bulges along the shins, which might be there to represent extra superheroish muscularity, but wolf legs don't work like that. I get what Haighus is saying about bear legs, but they're an insult even to bears! Sorry to say, but the legs - especially the forelegs - of the new AoS hippogryph are closer to wolf legs than these things. It's that bad.
The paws are nothing like wolf paws, and not especially convincing as the hands of super-soldiers transformed into wolf monsters, if that's what Freki and Geri were. (I haven't kept up with the details of HH fluff.) I'm looking at the curled-up paw of the grey wolf and I think 'what'. If I'm pushed, I'd say they look more like puffy duck feet with a kink in the toes. But actually, they're the same kind of lazy representation of a paw that's been put on WHFB wolves (and things like the mordheim bear and high elf lions) for decades.

The pose of the legs - and the whole of the bodies - are stiff, and dull. So duuullllll. I almost fell asleep looking at them. It's quite an achievement when your subjects are giant wolves leaping at enemies in battle. The forelegs are supposed to be clawing at the 1k Sons and the hindlegs are stepping forward, maybe even leaping. But there's absolutely no tension or stretching to indicate that. Maybe not entirely surprising since there seems to be no real muscle modelled on these figures; but the forelegs just seem to be pointing at the 1K Sons (no bending or splaying of the toes to indicate the marines are being raked by the claws) and the hindlegs are... just there. Like I say, no flexing or stretching. Both hindpaws solidly planted on the base. No dynamism.

The face. Glossing over the 'angry eyes', the expression of the snarling faces are vacant. Dead. Like grecian masks or something. Part of this is because, while I can see lines in the face of the brown wolf, facial muscles - like leg muscles - are more than just 'lines', and need a bit more attention than that. Especially if you're charging seventy bleedin' quid for it. Do an image search for snarling wolves and see how much the muzzle and lips can (or should) be lifted and bunched. In particular, the corners of the mouths of these sculpts slope and droop way down, more than they should for a tensed, snarling expression. Compare the mouths - and the whole face - to these photos. Might be subtle, in the eyes of some, but it's there.
What's worse is, those photos make it plain that the teeth of the sculpts follow the line of those droopy mouths. The teeth line the lips, not the jaws of the skull!
And the tongues are sticking out. Look at that first wolf photo again. It's another giveaway of something...

So. Unnatural flabbiness in place of muscle, skin and other anatomy. Dull poses. Decades-old, unrealistic GW tropes. Droopy mouths despite extreme-gape snarls, plus wonky teeth and a waggly tongue. Well, they're not reptiles, but I still smell Carden. Possibly Morrison, but more likely Carden.

The Kabuki model does look great... but it doesn't look like Russ. It is a great space roman general with viking iconography, but Russ should be a space viking chieftain.

I can. It's because they bear little relation to actual wolves in their proportions. The limbs might be thicker to look like they carry the weight of huge wolves, but if that's the case it ain't working. There are big animals with legs that don't look anywhere near as clunky - look at moose, or giraffes, or carthorses. The legs on these sculpts are just... flabby sausages, with vague lines along the thighs to say 'there are muscles here, no really' and a slight kink at the hock. There are vague bulges along the shins, which might be there to represent extra superheroish muscularity, but wolf legs don't work like that. I get what Haighus is saying about bear legs, but they're an insult even to bears! Sorry to say, but the legs - especially the forelegs - of the new AoS hippogryph are closer to wolf legs than these things. It's that bad.
The paws are nothing like wolf paws, and not especially convincing as the hands of super-soldiers transformed into wolf monsters, if that's what Freki and Geri were. (I haven't kept up with the details of HH fluff.) I'm looking at the curled-up paw of the grey wolf and I think 'what'. If I'm pushed, I'd say they look more like puffy duck feet with a kink in the toes. But actually, they're the same kind of lazy representation of a paw that's been put on WHFB wolves (and things like the mordheim bear and high elf lions) for decades.

The pose of the legs - and the whole of the bodies - are stiff, and dull. So duuullllll. I almost fell asleep looking at them. It's quite an achievement when your subjects are giant wolves leaping at enemies in battle. The forelegs are supposed to be clawing at the 1k Sons and the hindlegs are stepping forward, maybe even leaping. But there's absolutely no tension or stretching to indicate that. Maybe not entirely surprising since there seems to be no real muscle modelled on these figures; but the forelegs just seem to be pointing at the 1K Sons (no bending or splaying of the toes to indicate the marines are being raked by the claws) and the hindlegs are... just there. Like I say, no flexing or stretching. Both hindpaws solidly planted on the base. No dynamism.

The face. Glossing over the 'angry eyes', the expression of the snarling faces are vacant. Dead. Like grecian masks or something. Part of this is because, while I can see lines in the face of the brown wolf, facial muscles - like leg muscles - are more than just 'lines', and need a bit more attention than that. Especially if you're charging seventy bleedin' quid for it. Do an image search for snarling wolves and see how much the muzzle and lips can (or should) be lifted and bunched. In particular, the corners of the mouths of these sculpts slope and droop way down, more than they should for a tensed, snarling expression. Compare the mouths - and the whole face - to these photos. Might be subtle, in the eyes of some, but it's there.
What's worse is, those photos make it plain that the teeth of the sculpts follow the line of those droopy mouths. The teeth line the lips, not the jaws of the skull!
And the tongues are sticking out. Look at that first wolf photo again. It's another giveaway of something...

The other part is that both wolf faces have that same jaws-open-to-the-uttermost-extent look, despite being in relatively different poses and presumably at different points in the 'jump and savage' cycle. It's like the 'always roaring' trope that gets complained about in dinosaur art. It contributes a lot to the dead mask effect, IMO.

I agree with this. The thing about some of the differences being subtle, is that they all add up to the whole thing looking off. Subtle is important, it is the same reason that people who have had too much plastic surgery look off.

There's alternative components actually if you do want a more bare headed viking look.




They're down to the last couple of the run for Russ though, so they won't be available much longer. I snapped mine up a few days back. Pricey but I feel it'll be resellable in a few years if I never get around to painting it, on account of the fact that it's actually a better sculpt than the FW one!

Most of Kabuki's Knights aren't that great, but alongside the Russ I always thought their Corax gave the FW one a run for their money.

Yes, the Kabuki ones look more like normal wolves proportion wise, but I never imagined Russ to run with two normal wolves myself.

As I'll point out any time this point is used, the "factual" justifications are irrelevant if it looks wrong to the eye. You're quite right, these aren't Canis Lupus, they're Canis Fenris, and they're almost certainly unusual physical specimens of those.

However, if the net result of the sculpt is they look like "off" wolves then none of it matters.

It's an old excuse for sub-par fantasy/sci-fi sculpting. It's not that they're not real, let alone real wolves, but that they don't look like organic, naturally moving creatures.
References for something wolf-like (i.e. wolves) isn't hidden away, or mythical, or difficult to make use of. Look at Gamezone's wolf riders, for example. Even GW's thunderwolves and fenrisian wolves - the same kind of 'not real wolves' - manage to look better than these FW models. If you want to emphasise their weird human origin, like the faces on the cover of Prospero Burns (which is all we can see of them, and not entirely relevant to current complaints) then DnD's barghests or Reaper's goblin wolves show a route. (I don't think the Reaper minis are particularly well sculpted either, but they show a concept for not-wolves other than 'don't care') Even the man-eating sheep from the LotR movies are obviously not wolves, but manage to look like real creatures.

That's what they are in the more recent BL fluff... but those models are simply just badly sculpted and posed supersized wolves. If you want a look at alien lifeforms that are reminiscent of wolves, take a look at Infinity's Antipodes (namely the middle one in this pic).



The FW don't even look like the BL cover ones and are different for all the wrong/worse reasons from actual wolves. No, sorry, those models are just plain badly sculpted (for FW) wolves.

I do like both that Russ and his wolves (and the wolves more than the official ones). Russ himself is a bit too technobarbarian for me personally (he feels more like an artic thunderwarrior than a primarch to me) but that just could be the lack of a proper ranged weapon. I'd still be leaning towards the official Russ by a bit though (moreso if the FW Russ' fur cape flowed a bit better than it does.. it's almost as stiff as a second edition Space Marine metal captain's cape)

The armour is very reminiscent of a legionary for me too, not just the helmet. Looks like a nord officer in the Imperial legion in Skrim or something. Even with the bare head I still feel it makes a better Thunder warrior than a Russ.

Personally that's why I love the Kabuki one, it looks like a mashup between MK4 power armour and one of the Nord sets from Skyrim. The FW Russ has always been a bit meh for me, not because it's bad but just because there are lots of teeny little niggles I have with it personally that make it hard to justify the price(the face looks more like he's having a really unpleasant bathroom experience than snarling IMO, the cape is a bit stiff even accounting for the pose, and the pose itself almost has too much "motion" in it - I can see what they were going for, but feet, knees, torso, head, and arms all at different angles just looks odd to me), so thanks for the link & pics to that Ketara, I'd never have noticed that in time to get the helmeted version if you'd not brought him up

(as a cheeky aside, I actually don't particularly care for the Kabuki wolves and will probably use a couple of Thunderwolves for mine, so if anyone wants to buy the Kabuki ones off me when mine arrives shoot me a PM)

They were extremely tired from marathon painting terrain for the LVO and basically double shifting it for weeks and still had to go to the LVO itself. I'm not sure Reece might have let it slip and tried to cover up the reveal, or he might have just made a mistake and said there was only something coming to NA that had not been here before. I'm not sure which way to run with that information either. You can watch the latest signals from the frontline to decide for yourselves.

Wasn't there supposed to be a IA book that would bring the Mechanicum stuff in 40K or am I imagining things? I remember hearing it coming 'soon' ages ago.

Yep. I will faithfully hold the candle while I wait.

I'd rather have it hit after the new edition of 40k, if that is indeed coming soon as rumored!

Now this fething mini will never come out!



What we up to now? 2023? Now, we can't end a Forgeworld "Where is it?" thread without mentioning the Vyronii Transfers. Though, we can't annoy BrookM anymore ever since the Medics were released


My sources say Dorn and Vyronii transfers sometime after they work through the Remembrancer Character Series.

Lets not forget Alpharius, surely he's coming soon.

If anything is released there that is secret my bet is on the Tigershark remodel we seen a leak of a few months back.

He's already been released.

It's not Forgeworlds fault you didn't recognize the figure.

I wonder if Inferno will mention the Prospero Spireguard? They show up quite a bit in the two Prospero books. Would be nice to get at least some artwork if not a few models for them. Guess it depends on how well the Solar Aux sold

Tempted to buy the book for the artwork and fluff alone, those few pages make it look like it's going to be very pretty!

Presuming the new edition of 40K will be any good.

Personally if they're going to AoS up the place I'd rather they give me all my Mechanicus toys in a format I can use with the current rules or at least easily tweak to fit a more sane edition(since if they do AoS up the place and the community splits again, I'd be as well going back to playing a set of rules from when GW actually remembered how to write them).

I can't imagine they're going to risk mucking up 40k. I want to actually get games in, so the latest ruleset is the way to go for me. Fingers crossed that Rountree continues his positive trend and they do a good job of it!

And thanks, sir kronk
