I was thinking of Kria the Huntress from Necromunda, which on further inspection doesn't appear in that list, so I appear to be mistaken. Mind you, I liked that paint job, so I'm not sure which ones you lot like or dislike.

He's certainly done a lot of models that people have been moaning about.

Really? That Instagram portfolio is of a pretty high standard. Most of the models that people dislike were not painted by him. The space Wolf for example is not his work. There is at least one more forgeworld painter, but I think he is the only one who is active on social media.


There is a second painter who, as far as I know, doesn't have any social media presence. He is the one responsible for the gak paintjobs (example) most people complain about, he's also internal to GW and wasn't hired from outside. There's quite a lot of resistance to him being there but strings were pulled.

I was browsing FW the other day and wondered why they still still had the Chaos weapons arms up when the body has been gone for a while. I thought this was one of the models that got cleared out as part of their range “rationalisation”; now wondering whether it was just a damaged mould or if they’re going to be rolling back some of the other cuts.

I wouldn't read much into the range as a whole based on the Titan models- the Titans have always been prestige pieces which are as much marketing as profitable. They don't really need to be hugely profitable, they are more a statement of GW's ability to produce massive centrepiece models and an awe-inspiring bit of marketing for little Charlie when s/he sees the thing in the window of a GW store.

I wouldn't be so sure, FW have sold hundreds of the 40k scale Warlords alone based on the numbers seen for the certificates - they started at 1 for the Warlord. At approx £1250 per Warlord that is over £250k.

Warhounds are at about ~5500 last I saw, not sure if they started at zero for those, I think they did. My Reaver certificate number is approx.1400, last I saw was about 2500.

My release day Warbringer was 200+, obviously they don't ship out in order but that suggests they were confident enough to make a few hundred of them ready for launch and the Warbringer is not THAT much cheaper than a Warlord (relatively). Reaver and Warlord were both under 50.

The temptation to pick up a contemptor is high, 10 quid off is a decent enough saving but I have no idea what weapons are good for a 30k dread.

I know it’s kinda in “bad taste”, but I’d find it shockingly hilarious if this was the promised/hinted Skitarii transport for 40k

It wouldn’t surprise me, but, I really hope that it isn’t.

It _would_ surprise me, because that's a Forge World model for Horus Heresy, and not a citadel model for 40k.

Doesn’t matter whether it is FW or GW, 30k design or 40k. There is plenty of cross over between the 2, with a lot of FW stuff having 40k rules filling gaps in the GW armies. We know Admech are getting a transport, and now, we have this released on pre-order.

Granted it doesn’t have 40k rules uploaded for it (yet, maybe) but it could still happen.

I don’t expect it to be the case, but, part of me also acknowledges the possibility.

My first thought was that it looks very similar to the Dreaded Ambull sculpt (or the ambots). I don't know whether it's the same size though.

I believe they specifically said it was going to be a perennial at the WHW store.
They also explained its genesis; the guy that designed the BB Minotaurs made both variants simultaneously as his first ‘learning’ digital sculpt and they decided to make the regular one generally available as it best represents the basic starting Minotaur but this guy (obviously) has Claws so they felt keeping it back as an exclusive would be better as not everyone is going to go for that option.

That's...not very sound reasoning. What makes them think that the only people who would want to go for that option can attend events/WHW? Of course, they don't think that, they think they have a cool variant that with an option that a lot of people will want to take, and they're leveraging that to try and drive event attendance.

Well, it works?

But yes, overall Event Exclusives are typically available at Warhammer World all year round.

Which is nice. And temptation enough for me to make the occasional pilgrimage up that way.

The video was published under the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook account, not Forge World. So, it's not a Forge World unit, and not for Horus Heresy. So not this Mole tunneller.
