As an enormous Space Wolves fan, I’m glad my FW models came out before these DA models. Imagine my expectations for the Wolves after seeing those, and then imagine how much more crushed I’d be with what we got.

I’m happy for the DA fans. Very nice looking stuff.

Looks like they got some new sculptors or stoped using the interns for the 30k stuff and yes wolf and scars players have my sympathies.
Hopefully going forward both the models and paint jobs stay more like this and less like the past 18mths?
I would say these actual come close to justifying FW prices.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis

Right? If it wasn't for the sword and wing iconography, I would think these were Black Templars, not Dark Angels. Regardless, some crafty filing and placement of Templar Crosses would not be difficult at all on these guys for conversions.

It's been a long time since they've done anything HH related that caught my eye. But these dark angels are very nice, much better than the space wolf stuff. Too bad I don't play 30k. I just can't go back to doing resin, not a fan of the material. Also the lack of mk II crusader armor in resin or even plastic hurts. Had I any interest in starting a HH army I would prefer mk II over mk III as III is just a bulked up mk II and maybe a bit too clunky for my tastes. Mk II fits the knightly dark angels aesthetic much better.

I don't like Dark Angels as a rule but those sculpts are just gorgeous. They clearly gave the job to someone who cares much more about DA that the person who sculpted the Scars.

If only that was a Black Templar release.

Yeah I agree on the MKII. It's by far my fav HH armour and the fact that it's the only one(other then MKV) in resin still kinda sucks. I actually really like resin but the price would be a lot better in plastic. I do like my mechanicum tho.

I wish they'd do a Mk.II kit, and a Mk.V kit to be honest. Mk.V is fascinating because it's kinda sorta not a real mark.

Damn a mkV kit would be awesome. I love the look of the helmet and how in the fluff its a spin off from the Terminator armour development project.

So after waiting ~4 months for the rules for the new Mole to finally show up after I bought one at the weekender (despite being told the rules were sent to Community for publishing before the weekender started) and having bought a Knight Asterius at Warhammer Fest I wonder if I can ask Dakka for a favour? If you could spare five minutes to demand the rules for the Asterius from the Community team because I am getting fobbed off with that they will be released when the model will be released (as I was with the Mole), which could be months from now.

Looks like a repeat of the Legion Contemptor variants. Endless dreadnoughts with legion markings. And after they're done, there's the Deredeo. And by then a new Dreadnought Chassis will be out and they can start again...

Heresy-era "Utilitymarines" actually get two unique marks of armour...

The Forge World stuff has done well to give them a distinct personality.

Indeed, more so than they have in 40k I think.
I like them in Heresy, where as I was less bothered in the 40k days.

I’d love for the Lion and Khan models to be out by the end of the year latest..

I think Khan will be out before years end, but probably not both. He'll be next year, then they'll probably (hopefully) mop up some of the main characters still without models, before moving onto the emperor.

It'll be interesting to see how they'll handle the Khan model-wise, as he's got the option to use a jetbike.

Didn't they also say they'd do a second version of (chaos empowered) Horus around the same time as the Emperor?

At one point there was talk of a second version of several as the get Chaosified. But no official word I don’t think.
Not on the emperor actually coming..

Khan, now that they did say they’d like to do one on jet bike and one not. As to whether will though, who knows

There was official word that they would do the Emperor and chaos versions of some of the others, it was a few years ago now though.

They def are at least considering bringing emperor to the game seeing he is mentioned in custodian list.

Not fan of idea. He is either bonkers good or silly weak in game

When I spoke to Simon Egan at the Heresy weekender he mentioned the emperor getting a model. Not explicitly but as a designer I figured he'd probably be in the know. Chaos horus would be cool as long as its not too cartoony.

I wonder if they Chaos versions have been dropped now, as seems like GW is producing models of the daemon primarchs and I guess the ones that don't go full daemon probably wont have changed enough to justify a new model, and I don't believe the daemon primarchs in 30k are going to look that different to how they look in 40k.

Horus seems a likely exception though as I imagine if they do a model of the Emperor it will be part of a pretty hefty display set of the confrontation on the Vengeful spirit, and of course GW proper aren't going to be producing a 40k Horus model, what with him being dead and everything.

If I were FW I would very seriously consider not giving him rules; just do the model as a collectors piece, to round our the set.
