ForgeWorld MKVIII 'Errant' Armour, do you want it???
YES, I want/would buy MKVIII Errant Armour from FW
NO, the plastic torso is more than enough if I want MKVIII
Abstain, because I don't play 40K or SM

I think Mk IX Armour would be "Taurus Armour" mainly because it looks like the MINOTAURS in 40k are the most "Fapped Over chapter by the High Lords" .

So it would make sense they tested it and therefore named it. Much like the RAVEN GUARD and Mk VI Corvus.

I would love, just to model and have a squad of MKI Thunder Armour. Or perhaps when the heresy runs it's course we could have a unification wars series if novels and associated models..... This could be a way cool box set!! Just for completeness a squad would be immense. Obviously same completeness compulsion drives my need for MKVIII

I love MK8. Yes, please.

Imagine that you’re sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don’t get any. So you say “I should get my fair share.” And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, “everyone should get their fair share.” Now, that’s a wonderful sentiment — indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad’s smart-!@# comment just dismissed you and didn’t solve the problem that you still haven’t gotten any!

The problem is that the statement “I should get my fair share” had an implicit “too” at the end: “I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else.” But your dad’s response treated your statement as though you meant “only I should get my fair share”, which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that “everyone should get their fair share,” while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That is why we need feminism, and why I am not simply egalitarian.

While at this particular juncture I wouldn't buy a bunch of Mk8 torsos I would love to see them offered. I did a squad of honor guard with Mk8 armor, five guys in total, and I just used plastics for them because I had the bits handy. If I didn't have them on hand though I would have probably looked to source the bits in some other way.

I'm votoing 'Other'. For myself, I don't need it - I typically run whatever I can buy cheap/second hand off eBay (...usually...) - but having it there should I get a the desire to buy it (like my now needed but 'Not Available' Damned Legionnaire with Flamer) would be nice.

I say yes because then it may allow with time for Errant to slowly become more and more common as fluff wise it provides better protection.

Who knows maybe once Errant is around for awhile a new power armor type may arrive

No. Simply because I think FW is spending way too much time on 30K as it is and that armor isn't very impressive anyway. But, since they saw fit to waste so much of their effort on making a contemptor for every legion I am surprised they were able to find the restraint to say no to this. Maybe there is hope after all.

MKVIII armor isn't even close to 30K!

But maybe you just meant spending too much time on Marine stuff?

I'm still surprised and happy to see that the 'YES' votes here are the overwhelming majority.

Maybe we'll see some Errant Armor when FW gets around to making more Minotaur stuff?

I just hope it is 'generic' enough to use for other Legions/Chapters without too much cutting, shaving, sanding, etc.

I like the high gorget on MK VII especially. Defintely would like to see more models coming out wearing the Errant armour. Mind you I also wish the Corvus helmet would just dissappear completely.

Mk.viii armour is really cool, but I would like to see what Mk.IX looks like. Mk.8 I for those who want a medieval jousting knight look to their chapter or a squad sergeant/captain.

I would love to see FW make some Errant pattern armor, I love the high gorget on it, and since I'm (eventually) looking to buy some stuff from FW I could just throw in an order or two of the armor along with it.

Would be good, always think they look better as assault marines or devastators. Just that slightly more protected look.

I am abstaining because I only play 30k Space Marines. But I think having the Mkviis ould be good for conversions and the like. So I think I should have voted yes?

With the new deathwatch kit it is readily available but with story advancement looking more and more likely I say that mkVIII should become standard, mkVII should become the current beekie armor and mkVI should become like mkIV: the occasional parts showing up in a box

There is no option for 'true' MKVIII yet - not even from FW.

Is there?
