Stuff like the assault cannon drop pod stops selling because they haven't done anything with it for years. Periodically the older stuff in the catalogue needs something to push it back to prominence. How many people are going to find and decide that they want one if it sits there buried in the webstore somewhere?

Esp when that half of the company doesn't get as much massive scale marketing- though its a lot better now than it was. Then again there are some subtle oddities such as most of the exalted greater demons being worse than their counterparts

I remember them telling us that all the juvenile "social politics" stuff would be over once we left school. Why is it we lie so much to kids do you think?


Because then you won’t want to be an obedient office/shop drone. You might even start doing something really dangerous, like thinking.

Well, I think most people going for HH armies tend to go all in - IE, People will buy the deimos door for their deimos rhinos as Deimos Rhinos are more era appropriate, and the Mk2 rhino doors probably didn't sell.

They kept the post-heresy/chaos doors available.

I've never seen a Deathstorm in person, so *shrug*

The Macaroid is a shame though, but with Admech from FW in perpetual limbo for 40k I doubt they sold many, as from what I've read most people who played Admech went for the fancy robots that couldn't go in a tank anyways.


Oh I think we can safely say the Forgeworld Mechanicum models will not be getting 40k rules at this point. It's a real shame as I would have bought those tanks and transports in a heartbeat as they're the most unique and interesting vehicles they've ever produced.

It is just pure insanity. Despite a lot of people demanding 40K rules for the Mechanicum stuff they have refused to release them. And when unsurprisingly the models do not sell as a result, they discontinue the models. FW is just completely pointless these days.

Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

I'll echo the thoughts here. While the Flash Gordon stylings of the FW mechanicum stuff didn't appeal to me personally, I could at least recognize the artistry and style that went into the designs. The plastic 40k AdMech stuff is a poor imitation... it's the wargaming model equivalent of having a Shakespearean play google translated into another language and back again.

Why so surprised? r&h f.e. Were an upgrade sprue horde army.
That alone made them rather unatractive. Add to that the gak that Calls itself index for 8th and you can easily see why the numbers don't add up for them. And their solution? Curb the cost cut the line. The underlying problem of the line E.g. Terribad rules are not regarded as a problem.

Also it's a general gw problem, take SoB, horribly outdated and often metal, got completly neglected.
But a lot of times the real reason they didn't sell had to do with their rules beeing outdated beyond belief.

My understanding is that 40K rules are handled by the GW studio now, not FW. Probably because that way they can go through regular playtesting channels. FW AM stuff was undoubtedly way down the list of priorities. And sure, one of the reasons is because the models are resin and not plastic. They should always be pushing plastic to keep those machines busy.

It's a good looking normal marine relatively speaking. I'm a bit surprised that they didn't make the service studs blood drops instead.

Dude is pretty bland. Like, his torso armor looks pretty good, and his arms are a different pose, but the rest is just so meh... If I saw that models somewhere, I feel like I'd have just assumed it was an above-average kitbash with a little kneadatite work.

I really want to support them when they release new regular marines, but price points like that make it near impossible.

30K seems to have become a whale-hunting exercise on FW's part. Their stuff has always been very expensive, but $73 for a single marine with small scenic base seems...next level.

Which is *almost exactly* the US price.

But we no longer need to be baffled by exchange rate calculations. So we have that going for us, which is nice.

They try to hide the shoulder with the angle too. There's some subversive stuff on their site especially with older models. They don't mention that the bio titan's legs don't support it or the malcador's tracks don't fit. The krieg infantry don't even come with all the same arms pictured.

It’s far from the body because they have the strap from the bolter hanging off of it. It looks like there’s a space for a flat washer between the torso and shoulder pad. It makes the body really disjointed. They have the model at an angle to try and camouflage it.

I didnt notice it until someone said, they sure are trying to hide it in the photos. That being said it shouldnt be too difficult to "fix". It also shouldnt happen in the first place.

Other than the shoulder thing, it is a good looking model.
