I am 100% serious when I say I would buy an army's worth of MKVIII armor if FW will make them!

So yes, I too want my MKVIII armor, please!

Odd the responses are so uniform and the poll is so close!

Still, if even 50% of fw customers are interested, that's still pretty impressive!

There's definitely an anti-anything Marine sentiment to what FW decides to put out, so that may be some of it.

Still, FW likes selling lots of their items, I'm sure.

And I'm sure Marine stuff sells lots, so...

MKVIII for the win!

Everyone may not like it, but lots and lots of people will buy lots of them!

You are looking for a specific target group, people who don't play 40k shouldn't really care about the poll.

Yes, I'd like that.
That first pic (the sketch) is exactly what true scale marines should look like. Much better than the bulky terminator based conversions.

You know what? Where will this end? In 2020 will we be demanding Mk X Armour? Maybe we need to stop this thing because it seems it will never stop.

YES, I want MKVIII

i think it would be great to have a couple of squads or mixed marines with this torso... its a pain to get more then 2/3 from websites like bitsbox and bitsandkits and stuff...

although i can understand why FW wouldnt wanna put effort into making them

If FW made a True Scale Marine Kit, they would shift so much by volume GW would take notice.

Gif meee mk VIII!!!!

I would definatly by some for my DA force! I have a mix of all the marks to give the feel of a chapter that has been around for a long time and that every single suit of armour is sacred. I mix them up for a feel of each marine having been given what was avalable at the time. More choices is always good.

Lets have some diffrent types of TDA as well, and some more wepon styles!

There is no official mark of armor beyond MKVIII so, to answer your question, as of right now, it ends with MKVIII!

in a fire... AAAAAAAHHH!!$*five@!!

I like errant except for one thing: corvus helmets don't work with them. This is OK in and of itself, but the video games are now snubbing off the beaky nose to make it fit inside the errant collar. The snub nosed beaky looks like crap, ruining my favorite helmet. I haven't bought any FW stuff yet anyway, but I'm still all for as much variety as possible. Go FW Errant armor!

MKVI helmets are really not intended for use with MKVIII suits - I think that's even listed as one of the 'drawbacks' to the MKVIII armor!

But that's no drawback for us, if FW makes full on suits!

Yes i would support any production of an armour variant that would allow us as hobbyists to grow our collections and produce our forces as we want to see them even if it is similar in theme to the current mk of armour.

It's an old figure but I still like it, even if it doesn't lend itself particularly readily to action poses because of the more rigid articulation of the suit.

I know, but something else will be mentioned in some new fluff from FW in the next 10 years ( just like the Red Scorpions or the Minotaurs). Next thing you know we will have Custodes MkII Armour or some such made up stuff. Look at the contemptors, and 30k stuff all inspired by the visions of the heresy stuff.

Not to get all Kanluwen on you , but...

The Contemptor design has been around for a long time now!





If Forge World want s to go back to the past, update stuff to make it even more awesome, and release it now... I'm all for it!

MKVIII armor has been around for a long time now too, actually...
