The thighs are very thin and plain; they normally have some panel lines or something to break up that surface. Other than that, very cool model.

But thats has always happened to marines. Have you see any terminator models, being the basic terminators the worst ones? Those are legs of a starving children.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Wow, the old plastic minis look like crap compared to the proportions of the new ones if that not-Maloghurst mini is anythign to go by. Those proportions are so much nicer (IMO). Can you mix them together? Yeah, but I wouldn't want to.


That new mini actually returns to the proportions of the resin armor marks.

But let's not pretend that ANY of these models have anything resembling real human proportions. They're all ridiculously distorted. The leg armor probably isn't that skinny if you're talking about a being 8 heads tall, even a muscular one.

Haven't seen this, but there's a post on 'Salaise Figurine' fb. Not sure how legit is that, considered we've seen several resin models incoming.

BREAKING NEWS sur l'horus heresy (à prendre avec des pincettes, mais si c'est vrai, c'est dingue !)
"New "Edition" in Nov 2021
GW will overtake Horus Heresy as a "new" System from FW
Own Ruleset like the last one from FW, not a 9th Edition 40k adaption like many guess
Many new Plastic Sets are planned to replace FW Resin Models which will be also useful with 40k Armies
GW will overtake the Decals for all 18 Legions, Characteres and very Legion specific Stuff remains with FW
As a new Main System, Horus Heresy Story will expanded with Themed Expansions like the "Warzone" Books in 40k - the reboot beginns with the Battle for the Sol System, later they will revisit earlier "Warzones" like Istvaan III, Istvaan V, Prospero, Tallarn ect. with focus on certain Factions
Warzone Expansions replace the "Black Books" permanently
Horus Heresy is planned over many Years and will also Expanded into a "Age of Darkness" Game with multiple Setting, including the Scourge or the Great Crusade (see The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit as "Middleearth" SBG

That's just the same as the other rumours but in French.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's just reposting from Reddit/Twitter/wherever the original rumour came from.

Does GW really needs a new main game? They sell out pretty much every 40k release and there still some range that are far from being modernised

That's only if 30k is made a "main game". It was in the last annual report that GW called it a main system but both before and after that report, it sure didn't feel like it.
I'm sure 30k will be handled like ME:SBG, plastic kits from GW but only online, rules from GW but not really, and anything not in core books from FW. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but ME:SBG is not what I would consider a main system.

Between the Twisted and Mal, it's great to see the SoH getting some FW love. As one of the first HH model ranges, they definitely are showing their age (except Horus, who remains one of the top primarch models imo).

If only I could justify using him that Praetor in 40k. But SoH are either dead or Black Legion-ed, so having an army of them would be like having a succesor chapter of Space Wolves, Pre-Primaris.

Edit: Actually, the True Sons are still around, as far as I'm aware. Hmm...

Um... they started it, released great (though expensive) books and lots of models, upgrade kits, special units for the legions, primarchs, Mechanicum, other Imperial forces, two board games with plastic models... Sure, it has been a kinda lean period since then, but what exactly is your definition of 'kind' and 'ever'?

There were already extensive Heresy fan-rules and at least one prominent UK wargamer (TemplarCrusade01) running a Horus Heresy campaign spanning the whole war before FW released Betrayal. Started it? No. Started an official version to make money off of an already existing fanbase? Yes.

released great (though expensive) books

Expensive undersells it a bit. It took until Extermination for a Codex-style army list to be released for 30k, that's 3 books at £80 apiece for basic units.

and lots of models,

A large chunk of the Heresy range was simply previous products ported over from 40k when they were released for the Badab War.

upgrade kits, special units for the legions, primarchs, Mechanicum, other Imperial forces,

This sort of thing wasn't unusual for FW though. Imperial Armour was a constant source of characters, special units and entire armies. Death Korps, Exodites, Elysians, Chaos Dwarves, Renegades and Heretics, Red Scorpions, Astral Claws, Minotaurs, even the Exalted Daemons. Has the quality got better? Sure but let's not pretend FW was doing anything new.

two board games with plastic models...

Both of which were amazing buy-in points for 30k, both of which got dropped never to return far too soon after their release.

Sure, it has been a kinda lean period since then, but what exactly is your definition of 'kind' and 'ever'?

Lean is putting it mildly. 30k hasn't had a general FAQ since 2019, not because it doesn't need it but because there's nobody to do it which brings me to my next point. The 30k team was originally one man, Alan Bligh, and despite his insurmountable love for the Heresy, he couldn't hold an entire game up by himself. When Alan passed away FW hired two people to replace him, and again despite having a huge love for the setting and game, two people just isn't enough to hold up a game that is supposedly a "main system".

Heresy has always been treated as "that subgame to 40k" that got quite popular but has never had the support to capitalise on that popularity. When New-cromunda did really well it actually got support from main GW, FW, and even WD and has continued to do well since then releasing some stellar new kits into the GW range. That's the kind of support I want for 30k and it just doesn't get it. It took nearly a decade just to get the rules for all the Legions who are the main army of the entire game.

I was just looking at FW, planning out my next Imperial Fist purchases.

Rogal Dorn seems to be "No longer available", hopefully that is a slip of the keyboard and he should be "Temp out of stock"?

Also, are the new IF Praetors not released yet?

First the IF Praetors are not realsed, and second FW has a weird habbit of making things "No longer avalible" instead of "Temp. out of stock" when they make something unavalible for a while.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Fulgrim was no longer available but came back into the store a week or two ago.

According to FW when I emailed them my concerns, "Sold Out" doesn't always mean "Sold Out". They didn't clarify much further which kits would be coming back, just that they're doing some 'updating'.

Amen to this. I still remember talking to one of the former employees at my local GW; I was commenting on needing to sell off my Orks so I can have a little extra cash to throw at plastic Sisters whenever they finally got an update, to which he informed me that I should give up on Sisters because the Orks were going to get new stuff and the Sisters weren't going to be updated for a loooooooong time.
And then like 3 months later GW started teasing plastic sisters, and I laughed.

I was wondering if the guy who got the model had the shoulder pads on the intended way, but I guess not (not that it matters lol)
Shame they didn't make a terminator praetor (unless they're not showing it off because only the power armor one got leaked)



I thought he'd look more like this guy, but it makes sense to put him in the more common SoH scheme
