Yeah....Covid an all is a thing. Yet the Contekar and Deathwing are ready to go. They're actually just stalling for some reason. I dont understand why you wouldnt make releasing everything you have ready for Book 9 a priority within the first couple weeks post launch. Also, the new Warbringer Volcano cannon is a weapon swap, that you cant buy separately like LITERALLY EVERY OTHER TITAN WEAPON THEY SELL. So in order to get this new weapon people have been waiting on you gotta spend another $1,260 USD on another titan...

These are just stupid business tactics, they have nothing to do with Covid.

Also just noticed they got rid of the Warlord Lucius Pattern head. Why.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I'm ranting now, cant help it, but why are we on a limited time clock with everything FW releases? There are so many things I wanted to get for my Legions that have been removed its crazy. Transfer sheets that have disappeared for no reason. Upgrade kits that lasted only a year and a half on the site before being binned (Newer LR doors). Tanks like the Achilles Alpha (I planned on getting 3) just vanish. Don't even get me started on MKII.

I get FW isn't mainstream like GW, but these constant removals of things I want to purchase one day and just can't in my current financial state (especially considering they raised everything sitewide 20-40% two years ago for some reason) are doing nothing but driving me towards Dakka's dreaded R-word. I have access to all the MKII I need now, no thanks to FW.

I can't fully support a company that doesn't seem to care for it's community.

They didn’t release the Escher upgrades with the HoB either, so something is lagging down the line.
And while that may be covid-related, it's not like Necromunda's Forge World range support was remotely logical before all that. Some weapon packs were released shortly after the original Gang War books, others months later. Previewed models could take anywhere between weeks and many months to release. Whether there was a bottleneck in sculpting, casting or something else, it certainly wasn't smoothly organized in the past to begin with.

They’ve never actually made the deck gun for the Warbringer available separately.

That was understandable previously, as it was the only option. I think it's almost certain that the weapons will be switched to separate items in the not too distant future (probably with a bit of a price hike on the overall cost of weapon+body).

There wasn’t really a need too before now, seeing as it only works with the Warbringer and it was the only option it had before now.

Was able to find out elsewhere the contekar can't all take the power claws, which is massively disappointing.

Nope, they have "Chain blades" opposed to Chaingalives which are the same thing but dont give +1 strength.. I don't understand this choice at all. +1 strength does not make this unit OP. Little nerfs like this are just annoying to the player base. And only the unit leader can take the Power Claw. Which is also pretty dumb.

I like the models, but the rules for contekar are kinda low tier minus the free force org slot.

If they could be taken as a command squad by anyone except Sevatar I might have been willing to take some, as is it's an absolute no on them. Which is just a shame as I love the models (and plan on trying to get my hands on some for conversion material).

Luckily night raptors now seem pretty ridiculous and pair nicely with the terror assault RoW.

Truly, whoever sculpted the DA range is a legend. Knocking units out of the park time and again. So far the only DA unit I haven't been super enthusiastic about are Knights Cenobium. Just a tad too busy for my tastes.

Has there been any word on whether models for the Enigmatus Cabal or Exicndio battle-automata are on their way?

Hellblasters were just copying Legion Support Squads anyway, and I think the Deathwing guys were actually shown before we saw Bladeguard.

Yes, they've been previewed quite some time back.

It was Fil Dunn (former eavy metal painter and now fw designer) who sculpted all of the new squads for the DA. He did the Lions scenic base with the chopped up Nightlords as well. The 2 Praetors, the Contemptor and the Leviathan were done by Alexandre Dumilliard

Nicely sculpted models but that color scheme... no thanks. It reminds me of my old high school friend's first car that was a fixerupper to put it mildly. He had multiple stripped/bondo'ed and junk yard replaced panels of different colors that he couldn't afford to paint consistently even if he did finish the work (which he never did). I'm not sure that's the look the 1st Legion is going for though.

Isn't that a weird detail: You can see the Marine's hand inside the power fist.

Also one of the frames of the 360 is a different model, which is amusing.

Forge World's international prices are completely slowed. Why Australia pays AUD$30 more for that kit when it's being made and shipped from the same factory, directly to me, makes zero sense.

It's an odd price - £18 more than the Interemptor Squad and £3 less than the Inner Circle Knight Terminators. The Blood Angels special units are either £50 (Angel's Tears) or £55 (Dawnbreakers) and they're jump infantry.

Finally, after 7 months waiting!

HBMC, there was a powerfist with this the hand visible inside in the now oop marine character upgrade set from FW. IIRC, the Huron model from FW has it as well in his claw fist

Yeah - you'd think that might cause problems if he's trying to grab something to crush it.

There is precidence for that - a while ago, Forgeworld sold the Marine Characters Upgrade pack - one of which was a powerfist with the hand clearly visible.

I tried to find a picture of the pack, but could only find this one

I get that there were others - I'd not seen them before personally but ok. Still doesn't make it any less weird.
