But we are stuck with guns where you wonder how the crew, ammunition, and the majority of the gun's workings manage to fit inside the turret. The only one that comes close to reasonable is the autocannon turret for the space marines.


this is GW heroic size we are talking about. we mind as well do over THE ENTIRE LINE with everyone being completely wrong with scale.

GW needs to make better female vampires.

This is the closest they have gotten so far that is ok for me:



With all honesty, they make better sketches for them than models

also chaos raptors.... they look AMAZING. But, they're 45 USD for 5. WTH, no wonder no one fields them. Also, I'm sure having the same 5 poses would look pretty dull after a while.

Plastic Hydra. Make that and I'm willing to bet every IG player will start spamming them.

And yes, new rough riders as well, preferably plastic. I don't want stupid Mongol rough riders mixed in with my Cadians! I want Cadians on horses! Or Catachans mounted on some Emperor forsaken monstrosity!

Edit: The GW illustration team, quite honestly does an amazing job when they're called up. 40k fluff would be so much less fascinating if the illustrations sucked.

LOL....those actually slipped my mind completely.....

I do agree on the raptors....great looking models, but need to be plastic since they barely stay standing because of the awkward weight placement the models have.

I play Chaos, so I'm mostly looking at that line.

I'd like plastic obliterators and raptors, but I don't want their overall look changed.

All the greater daemons, but the FW ones are great.

I want plastic plaguebearers!

Plastic cult marines would be great, why do we only have plastic berzerkers?

Oh, and I hate the dreadnought, if I was to ever field one, I am so converting one of the loyalist variants.

Oh, and orks could use some more. Basically, everything wtih itty bitty orks needs a new kit.

NO! Don't! You'll bring the wrath of the Inqui-=door is kicked open, and is stormed by Inquisitorial stormtroopers=

Blitza, you can gain the attention of the Napalm-spitting jet-ski Lions, while I sneak in past the automatic rabid badger guns to see the message arrives safely. And good work, Chris. If I'm correct we'll need to lose the Laser-eyed kung-fu cheetahs somewhere along that trench system, so see if you can't add a few mirrors and maybe a dead end or 12.

Dear God-Emperor, is this what GW sends to silence it's critics? I'm beginning to be frightened. But yes...I'll set on it right away! By that I mean I will order my never ending tide of Guardsmen to finish it with piles of their own bodies!

And yes, Weetyskemian, you are digging yourself into a hole, and the Inquistion is becoming angry. ....But wait. There were Space Slann?

Before this get's to weird, (though, I fear I may be too late,) I'm gonna go ahead and steer this here thread back on topic.

As a Space Wolf Player, I think we could use a few updates for some of our Special Characters.

Ragnar, who looks like and 80's hair band reject, and the Iron Priest, who's plain out lumpy.

The "Rune Priest" model could use an update. Seeing as Njal uses a Psychic hood, you'd think less powerful Rune Priests might find one useful.

We could also use a generic Wolf Priest model as well.

Nothing like a bit of weird banter to liven things up.

how about a new set of Adeptus Ministorium. Some crazed monks with chainsaws and hoards of choirboys with autopistols. Give em some strange floating pulpits with preachers raining down damnation and hellfire. Holy relics carried high atop massive war engines, tier upon tier of ziggarut like bulk covered in the offerings of the pious and surrounded by crackling energy fields! GREAT MOBILE TEMPLES TO THE EMPORER!!! Grinding the heathen into submission beneath their awsome brass rollers, stamping the aquila seal into the very bedrock of the enemies worlds!! AHAHAHAhaha! Death to the alien! Death to the heretic!!

Sometimes I worry about the imperium of Man. Its just a little loony...

Oh god yes. New IG Priests would be lovely. Their rules seem so cool, but the models just aren't up to it....

Another thing I'd like would be a Commissar armed with its real standard wargear. Chainsword and boltpistol...I'm trying for complete WYSIWYG, but I don't want just the pistol aiming Commissar. One of that power fist waving Commissar with a chainsword instead would be quite nice.
