I agree with this.
Having a thread per game type is nice and all, but FW releases are slow.
This would mean most of the threads just rot for long periods of time.
Even a blanket coverage of all FW releases can be slow at times.

There hasn’t been any AoS or 40k Forgeworld releases for at least 1 and a half years and Horus Heresy are getting regular releases. Considering 30k is its own game now it makes sense to have its own thread like Blood Bowl, Miiddle Earth and Titanicus

A LOT of 30k models can be used in 40k. Pretty much all the infantry can easily be used without any rules modification. And if fw does happen to release any 40k or AOS models then changing the thread to being 30k specific means discussion of those models will be relegated to their own limited threads. We already have a full 30k only forum if you only want to talk 30k.

I don’t really get why it matters is news and rumour threads are quiet if there’s no news and rumours for a while? Or why HH/30k is less deserving of its own thread than Necromunda, Blood Bowl, AT when if anything it’s been getting releases more often than those.

Quite the chunky model. Probably not worth £10 more than he sicaran though.

FW really should do more photos like that on their product pages to give a better idea how big things are. Some of their "size comparison" photos just don't do justice to the size of a model.

Since it's listed in their 40k section, I'm betting that it will be getting rules there soon. Since, you know, 9th Edition is coming this year or next, so I'm bettign we'll see some regular 40k FW action as well.

The Armiger Moirax was released with 40k rules, and there's been several re-releases (Gorgon, etc) but nothing unique to 40k or for AoS.

What was the last unique 40k release - the Astraeus or the Red Scorpion characters?

Both of those kits were for 30k and the main studio happened to release 40k rules, the warlord having them in the index for quite some time, The last full true 40k release was for the Seraptek in Oct 2018. Nothing wrong with posting those rules in the 40k thread if and when they are released.

Don’t see why 30k having its own thread is causing such a ruckus. It’s its own game system and rule set.

Edit - to save argument, suggest you PM a mod to see if you can start up a separate 40k Forgeworld news and rumours thread for when a 40k release happens.

I already have and suggested either that or this thread be merged. I mean, seriously, with 9th and the SoB release you think there aren't going to be FW releases for 40k in the extremely immediate future?

No, I really don’t think that we’ll see anything more for 40k or AoS from Forgeworld directly. Forgeworld have been pretty much slowly reducing the pure 40k and AoS ranges through last chance to buys and the occasional disappearances. What you’ll probably get is the occasional get you by rules for a 30k unit when enough people make noise at the 40k team.

Thanks for everyones input on the thread name and content, but can I ask that any further discussion on the matter take place in Nuts and Bolts and not in this thread?
As it stands I see no issue with how things are currently presented, if a 40k only release happens it can go in here with out causing the end of the universe, if lots of 40k releases happen it can have its own thread and if lots of dual releases happens then it will take some thinking about.
Thanks,

Bad news - looks like some Legion shoulder pads are now marked with the dreaded No Longer Available. These aren't in the bags and are the new style blisters:

https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Iron-Warriors-Legion-MKIV-Shoulder-Pads
https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Dark-Angels-Mk-IV-Shoulder-Pads

I'd suspect that pretty much most, if not all, Legion pads will be going away. Same reason the doors and previous pads went I reckon - they don't sell enough, etc.

Damn. Guess I better load up on Night Lords shoulder pads before they hit the chopping block. I can't understand how they can't sell enough. Am I the only one who likes my legion to have the right iconography?

For me at least, it's a price thing. Would I prefer my armies having their special shoulder pads? Yes. Am I willing to spend extra money on that? No.

Not sure where you're getting that conclusion from? Emperor's Children still have Mk4 pads available, while both IW and DA have Mk3s.
Considering DA EC, and IW are usually stereotyped as wearing armor from those remaining marks, I doubt the discontinued pads were selling in a significantly higher quantity to entice GW to keep making them.

It seems like for a while now that they've been reducing redundant SKUs for things like upgrades and detail parts. However, every legion as far as I can tell still has an available set of helmets, tank doors, and shoulder pads in at least one armor mark.

It's my supposition based on what Forgeworld has done previously. For example, around the time the entire Mk II range was binned along with pads, the cataphractii pads were also scrapped. And last year, a load of door upgrade sets were removed. They were probably intended as an extra to purchase when buying the bigger kits to push people over the free shipping threshold. But, the Transfers are a nice alternative and for a few quid more you can get a sheet of those and that'll pretty much do your entire legion.

As mentioned, this is my guess on what's going on. I suspect they don't sell all as well as hoped and we will see the other pads slowly disappearing over time. Its why I posted it - give people notice that this is a potential future and get any remaining pads before they do vanish.

The only confirmed ones are the ones currently No Longer Available. But come on, we all know they’re not getting rid of just some legions’ shoulder pads. If you want some, get them while the getting is good.

As a hibernating Blood Angel player (admittedly 40k and not HH), I think those look like crap. They look more appropriate for pre heresy Emperor's Children to me. Ymmv.

I personally love those new blood angels troops, mainly cos they look like this old bit of Rogue Trader artwork that I always loved:
(the helmets specifically, but they have jump packs and twin pistols too)



but I can see why people say they don't quite look right for blood angels - I actually kinda wish they were generic troops rather than legion specific myself tbh

That's rare, normally all you get it as "watch the site just in case" which is basically what I've had asking FW twice (on separate occasions) as they started to strip AoS models from the range without warning (or much warning - esp considering that once on last chance most vanish within a few days - its not like you've a month or two).

The heads look very EC like with the screaming look to them.
While the plain armour is better than pure clutter, some form of detail is usually nice.
Really don’t look all that BA to me.

Considering the rest of the BA stuff, this ones a no from me.
Doesn’t help we’ve seen some amazing DA stuff either as it casts a big shadow.
